Brancale's iconic "Dynamic" cycling shoes are back after three decades. In 1986, the Brancale Dynamic became a favorite with professional cyclists because it was one of the first cycling shoes designed from the ground up to be used with clipless pedals. The Dynamic shoes were worn by winners of the Tour de France and many European road races. Their gray color and Velcro straps immediately set them apart from the sea of black lace-up shoes found in the professional peloton at that point in time.

Now, exactly 30 years later, Brancale is bringing back the Dynamic shoe, aptly called the “Dynamic II.” If there was one common piece of feedback from our customers during our first year of relaunching Brancale, it was to bring back these shoes. The Dynamic II shoes retain the aesthetic and heritage of the originals by keeping the classic gray color with the accent of a green, white and red stripped logo on the top strap. At the same time, they have been completely upgraded by using state-of-the-art technical microfibers and a carbon fiber sole. The Dynamic II’s have also added a third Velcro strap for additional support compared with the original shoes which only had two straps. Reflective logos are another enhancement found on both the front and back of the shoes for added safety. 

The Dynamic II’s are constructed from Lorica, a synthetic leather microfiber made in Italy. Lorica has superior properties to natural leather including lighter weight, greater strength, abrasion resistance, better moisture protection, breathability, and it keeps its shape better. The heel cup and toe of the shoes are reinforced with Sisa, another advanced microfiber made in Italy. The carbon fiber sole is also Italian, making this a 100% made in Italy cycling shoe, just like the originals.

Reviews:

"Thus the Dynamic's sophisticatedly simple grey aesthetic has been kept, as have the iconic Velcro straps. Only now those straps number three, not two, the grey uppers are now Lorica (a lighter, more durable synthetic material than the original's leather), and the sole is carbon fibre. Reflective detailing on the toe and heel is a nice, understated twist, and happily the Dynamic II's have retained their Italian provenance." - Cyclist Magazine (UK), October 2016 issue  

"Now Brancale is back, with the Dynamic II, based on that original shoe. While the shoe may still be gray and use Velcro closures, it's a thoroughly modern take...and, like the original, the Dynamic II is made entirely in Italy." - Peloton Magazine, July 2016 issue

"This is a really nice shoe...the sole is stiff without too much thickness...the cleat placement is spot on and the weight is plenty light." - Former professional cyclist Greg Oravetz
