Vittoria Shoes were started in 1978 by former professional racer Celestino Vercelli. Vercelli had ridden for some of the greatest teams of his era, including SCIC and Brooklyn. For generations Vercelli's family had made shoes, so his starting a cycling shoe company after retiring from racing was a natural. If you are interested in learning more about Signor Vercelli, our friends at BikeRaceInfo.com posted an extended interview with this interesting icon of the cycling industry.

All of our Vittoria shoes were hand-made in the Vittoria shop in Biella, Italy.

Vittoria Premium shoes don't use adapters for the various cycling cleats. The cleats bolt directly on to the sole, minimizing the distance between the foot and the pedal axle. The closer the foot is to the pedal axle, the smaller the dead spot at the top of the pedal stroke. Hence, the rider is faster. This small detail helps show Vittoria's dedication to making the most efficient and comfortable shoe.

The Premium shoes on this page are top-of-the line. They have a "Carbon Heart" sole. The stiffness of a carbon sole is applied to just the area where it is most important, around the cleat. The remainder of the sole is nylon/carbon composite. This gives the rider a very high-performance shoe for a reasonable price.

The Premium version with a top-strap buckle closure can be found here.
