    This is the only rapha thing I've wanted in years ...

    Blow up and pin a picture of M. Bartoli on your wall. When you achieve that position, stop. Until then, stretch, ride, stretch, ride, eat less, and ride more.

    I was just going to say the same thing. These and the blazer would be a nice look.

    Works for me. Everyday is currently a "rest day". These just fit my life.

    You need to change your avatar photo shot with you in some vibram 5 toes holding an IPA at futsal practice.

    Nerts. Green, which is obviously the best color, is already sold out in my size.

    How about a pair of dirtbag bedrocks? And I usually only drink IPAs during outdoor soccer practice. You'll be there ... just wait.

    Rapha Slides...basically a less-attractive version of the venerable Adidas Slide at twice the price.

    Yay for marketing!

    My wife was razzing me for extending the $10 flip flops I bought at the drugstore outside the scope of taking the trash to the curb. We settled on slides as at least one miniscule step up, and boom, these show up in my Instagram feed. Then I bought Adidas for half the price.

    I wear adidas slides from the locker room to my desk, where I keep my shoes. Comments happen, usually positive. That may change when I add the velour track suit all day, every day.

    These are only second worse to the upcoming release of Rapha's flat brimmed trucker hat.

    I'm a bit confused by the word "add" here, as it implies that the "velour track suit all day, every day" is not already a bedrock of your sartorial edifice.

    Rapha has it all wrong. These need white socks and hairy legs...

    I had a chuckle when I stopped by their pop up store here in BRU in May-June... They had their own (rebranded) inner tubes! And not even latex, either...
    Hard to take this serious anymore.

    Did they have branded talcum powder? If not, no sale

    I think Rapha has fallen from the previous epic height,
    the old Rapha would have.....

    The footbed is made from a soft and supportive NATO grade sniper padding and is contoured to create an ergonomic shape which cradles the foot. The strap is made with a beet root tanned yak hide made in Mustang and padded with saw grass wrapped in unbleached linen on the underside for a soft, secure fit worn with or without socks"
