DVS Cycling, an offshoot division of DVS Shoes, has collaborated with Cinelli bicycles to release the Luster Collection, an awesome new cycling footwear line. The sneakers are customized to suit bikers’ needs, boasting breathable leather sides, pig suede toes for improved pedal grip, and a reflective foxing tape stripe.
Along with being functional, the shoes also look cool enough for non-bikers to wear as well. Available in black or grey leather, with complimentary color accents on the shoelaces and the Cinelli logo on the tongue, we’re looking forward to their release this Summer / Fall 2011.

Notable changes includes a rubber cage around the midfoot, and a decline in height from the Skytop II.
While we all wait in suspense for the shoe to drop in the upcoming months, a full interview about the Skytop III with original Skytop creator Chad Muska can be found here.
