Cyclist David Millar auctioning his shoes for Small Steps Project

Posted by | February 6, 2014 | Blog | No Comments

Tour de France 2012We’re very excited to announce that cyclist David Millar will be celebrating his final year of racing by auctioning his cycling shoes in aid of Small Steps Project!

An Eloquence of Movement Project

Racing brand Fi’zi:k, along with David and his racing club – Velo Club Rocacorba – have created a series of one-off racing shoe designs to commemorate David Millar’s final season as a professional racer at the climax of an amazing 18-year career.

Each pair of shoes will be unveiled at David’s major races throughout 2014. The shoes have been individually created to reflect both the specific race and its region, and to tell the emotional story of David’s involvement in the race – in 2014 and over the past two decades.

phpgjXBLMAMDavid told us “We’re pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the manufacturing process, each shoe is taking on a life and character of its own.”

At the end of the season all of these shoes will be auctioned off, and the money raised will very kindly be donated to Small Steps Project!

Small Steps Project CEO, Amy Hanson has said, “By taking the monumental event of his retirement from professional racing David is using his career and the incredible support of fi’zi:k to help raise vital funds and support the charity as well as raise awareness.”
