Sometimes it takes sneaker companies a little while to catch up with trends, and when fixed-gear cycling became a thing a decade or so ago, no one was prepared with sneakers.

Later, Nike released an updated version specifically designed for cycling, but the initial adoption was 100 percent authentic.
