Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) appears to be wearing a previously unseen pair of shoes from DMT, the Italian shoe specialist who also sponsors Elia Viviani, Luis León Sánchez, Alberto Contador and the women’s team Alé BTC Ljubljana.

Information on the shoes is currently not available from DMT, but it looks similar to the brand’s KR1s in that they are knitted in construction. They differ in that they forgo the BOA dial in favor of fully lace-up retention, with what appears to be an elasticated sleeve on the upper to help keep the laces out of the wind and out of harm’s way. The knit construction will undoubtedly make the shoes light and breathable, and a diamond perforation is featured on the toe area to increase airflow. We don’t have a good look at the sole yet, but it will undoubtedly be carbon fiber in the construction.
