The good folks at Chrome have announced their latest SPD compatible sneaker known as the Truk Pro. This shoe is officially available today both online and at Chrome HUBS in New York, San Francisco, Chicago and Portland. If you’ve been looking to try out a SPD sneaker for a while but have balked in the past, now is the time. These minimally-branded shoes are at home whether it’s on your daily commute or the pit stop for a pint on the way home. Constructed of a dual density sole and Cordura upper, these are designed to deliver comfort and durability.

I’ll be testing out a pair myself over the next couple weeks, so stay tuned for my review on the Truk Pro. In the meantime, check out some more product shots below as well as the PR from Chrome.

San Francisco, California

The most covert SPD on the market, the Truk Pro is perfect for commuters, messengers, and others who live and work on the bike every day—and need a durable and comfortable shoe for bike, street, and office.

Enter the Truk Pro.

For those who live in and ride the city and want SPD performance on the bike and sneaker comfort off it. Durable, comfortable, and walkable. Made to be worn on and off the bike—all day, every day—with zero foot fatigue.

It’s the most innovative SPD on the market, featuring Chrome’s dual-density FlexPlateTM technology, developed to provide a fully rigid sole from the heel to the ball of the foot but also a flexible toe area (five times more flex compared with any traditional fully rigid SPD shoe). The result? Total comfort while riding and while walking.

Other features include a contoured, impact-resistant PU footbed, skid-resistant outsole, and recessed SPD plate. The 1,000-denier Cordura outer shell is 25 times stronger than canvas. Add 100% vulcanized construction and you’ve got one thoroughly bombproof shoe, ready for the demands of life on and off the bike.

Like all Chrome footwear and apparel, the Truk Pro SPD comes with a 365-day warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

RETAIL AVAILABILITY: 3/19/13 in Chrome HUBS in San Francisco, New York, Chicago, and Portland—and online at chromeindustries.com.

RETAIL PRICE: $95; available in grey and all-black
