Q: My custom Lamson cycling shoes have lasted for 30,000+ miles, including racing and loaded touring. Now, they’re near the end of the road. I haven’t been able to contact Don Lamson. Has he retired? Does anyone else make custom cycling shoes? — Richard R.
COACH FRED: Don Lamson was out of business for several years, a shame because his shoes are sorely missed by riders with special needs like extra width. You can now purchase his custom cycling shoe business as D2 Custom Footwear. I’ve worn his custom road and mountain bike shoes and liked them.
