R.E.W. Reynolds: still making cycling shoes after 95 years

R.E.W. Reynolds has been making cycling shoes since the 1920s and for 2016 is extending its range to include SPD offerings.

With Eroica Britannia taking place this weekend, R.E.W. Reynolds’ classic cycling shoes are likely to be a popular item. They’re still handmade in Northampton, the UK’s quality shoemaking heartland.

Paul started writing for Cycling Weekly in 2015, covering cycling tech, new bikes and product testing. Since then, he’s reviewed hundreds of bikes and thousands of other pieces of cycling equipment for the magazine and the Cycling Weekly website.

He’s been cycling for a lot longer than that though and his travels by bike have taken him all around Europe and to California. He’s been riding gravel since before gravel bikes existed too, riding a cyclocross bike through the Chilterns and along the South Downs.
