Dolores Review4/26/13 by KatieWhen Chrome first began making shoes, I bought a pair of the Tobruk slip ons. I wanted something that would last and not wear out the way other shoes do with daily riding. Although I liked the Tobruks, they were men’s shoes. I found myself wishing they were more narrow and that they weren't as bulky on my little feet. I wanted a good looking shoe, made with a lady in mind and finally, the shoes gods heard my cry.
The Dolores is my go-to shoe. They're simple, cute and most of all, comfortable. I wear mine on both my bicycle and motorcycle, and these solid shoes have stood up to the tough tests (i.e. city bike riding, muddy park adventures, late night concerts and misty motorcycle rides, etc…) I seem to endlessly put them through. The reinforced/skid resistant sole gives great support and better grounding, which is super helpful, especially on a motorcycle. They're my travel companions because I can walk all day in them without giving my feet blisters or cramping. They’re pretty much the perfect every day shoe!
A note to the ladies: these shoes run a little large, I normally wear a size 7.5 and the size 7 fit me perfectly. I would order a half size down from your regular shoe size.
A-Durable4/26/13 by Pamela
Dolores Shoes, they are A-Durable. The pairing of cordura fabric and the
shoes' feminine silhouette adds a lighter touch to the Chrome aesthetic,
all the while remaining, for lack of a quainter phrase, bad azzed.
I know that if I spill my beverage of choice on them, I can just damp
cloth the liquor, err, liquid off. Waxed over laces assure me that they
will not fray quickly. Or heck, I can live dangerously with out laces, and
there's elastic to keep the shoes on my feet. The sole is sturdy, you can
make quick stop/basket ball player noises on linoleum, without scuffing up
I've worn these shoes to their name sake park, Dolores, when the grass was
still dew covered without slipping when walking uphill. "Why would someone
even bother to write this" you may ask yourself. And the reason is plain
and simple. I have slipped walking uphill on the grass at Dolores Park.
And now my jeans have a grass stain on the knee.
These shoes and I, we are in it for the long haul. And with any lasting
relationship, there's a getting to know you phase. You giggle, you blush,
you even have your first disagreement-in the form of a heel blister.Here's
your solution. Band aids. Wear band aids on your heels for no more than 2
days. Once that awkward phase of self discovery was over, my Dolores shoes
and I skip, dance, ride bikes, run for the bus, tell bad jokes, make
kitchen floor quick stops, and generally have an all around good time.
This may be a wild claim, and is not supported with any scientific
research, but I'm a better break-dancer with them on. No joke. They are the
pop to my lock. The heavy to my metal. The pony to my keg. The Bruce
Springsteen to my E Street Band. The Bud to my Weiser. The show Cribs to
my requisite Scar Face poster. The Toga to my Frat party. The... you get
You CAN tour in these...4/26/13 by LauraI recently rode 500-plus miles in Dolores kicks, not wanting to spend the money or learning time on clipless. I ordered them in size 8 even though I'm normally an 8.5, per another reviewer's advice. The size down feels like a perfect fit when you're just hanging out, but if you plan to put in a lot of miles, I suspect you're better off with your regular size. Your feet kinda hulk out the more you ride, and after a while your toes will just push against the shoes for hours. I'm cringing just thinking about it. The soles are a decent thickness, but the bottoms of my feet did start to hurt after about 50 miles or so. I'm sure these things are primarily intended for around-town riding, and for that they're awesome. And even though they're probably not ideal for touring, I definitely intend to use them for that purpose again — maybe strapped in next time.
