Winners: The Ball Grabbers

The rest is a mystery.

New Vans shoes

New New, like new you can’t but them yet.

A few polo players and myself were asked to do a shoot for a magazine this past Sunday. One of the things they had for us to wear were these new Vans shoes. Apparently designed after vintage cycling shoes I’m pretty sure that this style, the tags said “supercorsa”, are newer than the cog and chain styles some other bike culture blogs have recently posted about. Made of real leather and has the old school Vans rubber sole. If they were my size, I’d have kept them!

Polo Ready Bars by Nitto

nitto plugged bars

For those of you bike polo players that can’t seem to find the time to plug your bar ends, Nitto has made a capped handlebar for you. In two styles, straight or a low riser with a slight sweep back. Made of steel. Get em’ at TrackstarNYC.

By the way, if you are playing polo with unplugged/uncapped handlebars you are a big jerk, and it’s even more dangerous than you are asinine. Seriously.
