What Shoe Boots These?

Alien8 sent us photos from Pret a Rouler and while going through them, I paused at this otherwise throwaway photo …


What shoes/boots are these! Gary-Fisher’esque, Steam-punky-latex-fetish, orange-accented gogo boots with SPDs?

Would’ve worn those home from London, had we seen them.


Excellent find!

I concur, spats!  But with a different link:

Velorution has been alerted that a cycle fashion show is to be staged on 14th October 2010 at the Barbican in London, billed as “Pret a Rouler”

Velorution, as the organiser of the first cycle fashion show staged in London called Pret a Rouler <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s—6lAM36LE> owns the trademark “Pret a rouler” and has NOT AUTHORISED other people to stage similar shows with the Pret a Rouler name.

Legal Demands

I hereby demand that:

1. the organisers of the show cease and desist from calling their planned show and any future cycle-fashion shows “Pret a Rouler” or any other name that can be confused with it;

2. the organisers of the show cease and desist from using the website pretarouler.co.uk to advertise and promote fashion cycle shows;

3. the organisers of the show write to Velorution, copying everyone in the to:  box above, a letter of apology for wilfully using the Pret a Rouler trademark without authorisation;

4. any organisation involved in staging and promoting the event on 14.10.10, and any other cycle fashion shows, from using the name Pret a Rouler in any promotional media, printed or online;

5. any individual, company or organisation showcasing their products or services at the above show from referring to and promoting the event as the Pret a Rouler show;

6 any media organisation or individual who has called the above event Pret a Rouler, to write a correction, stating that Velorution was the organiser of the original Pret a Rouler event and has not licensed any other organisation to stage similar events with the name Pret a Rouler.

If you do meet the terms and conditions set forth above, Velorution will take legal action against you for damages.
