Lotek T-Shirt

I needed some new kicks recently, so I went on the hunt with a few things in mind:
First: I wear a size 14, so my choices are always somewhat limited.
Second: Function – Gotta be able to be supportive while riding, and last a while.
Third: Style – I want them to look good in most any situation.
Fourth: I always try to support rider-owned companies when I purchase anything bmx-related.

Being an avid reader of Defgrip, I knew about Lotek, the clothing brand run by rider Rich Hirsch. I didn’t know if they’d be able to meet my size criteria, as so many smaller companies don’t make shoes for guys like me with “giant feet” as my kids say. But, lo and behold, Lotek makes the 14s. I did a little research and I read many reviews about their shoes, so I know they would be “rideable”, and because the Delta, their shoe I was checking out, was designed by Volume Bike’s Jason Enns, I knew they would last. So, I hit the Lotek site, and via their online store, I ordered a pair of Delta’s and a Fremont wallet for a helluva deal. Thanks Rich!

Also in Lotek news, they just finished a t-shirt design contest. The winning design is above (click to see the entire design, by Nicolas Ferreira), and you can check out the other entries here. Rich mentioned on his blog that it was tough to pick a winner, but after seeing all of the entries, I think they made a solid choice.

SE Shirt Design
Shirts from SE – click for a larger image.

Todd Lyons at SE just sent over the news that they have all four of their new shirt designs in stock from sizes small to XXL. The BMX shirts come in the classic blues and browns, and they have one representing their single speed bikes which looks rad as well. You can get them through your local SE shop, now, just in time for gift-giving.

Personally, I’m digging the “number plate design”, and I’m a XL if anyone needs to know, heh.
