Chrome got its start in a Boulder, Colorado garage in 1995 — fashioning the straps of its messenger bags out of recycled seat belts. Since then the brand has successfully served the bike messenger community with its top-quality cycling apparel, bags and accessories. It’s no small feat: bike messengers demand a lot out of their gear, and are quick to sniff out anything that feels “poser.” Chrome’s signature seat belt buckles remain, although the company is now based in San Francisco and has expanded its offerings to include tees, socks, packs and laptop bags, and shoes. The best bags around? Ask your favorite bicycle messenger (if you can catch up to her or him).
The mega-durable bags (complete with seatbelt buckles) that made Chrome famous among bike messengers can still be found in this sale — a pair of sleek black models with red detailing, to be precise. But the main attraction is the collection of hip and incredibly sturdy shoes: Made of Cordura fabric and designed with a low profile to accommodate toe cages, these low- and high-tops are as impressive to look at as they are to use.

Made of Cordura fabric and designed with a low profile to accommodate bicycle toe cages, these low- and high-tops are as impressive to look at as they are to use.
