Giro d’Italia fans can really get their Ya-Ya’s out with Fizik’s limited edition Aria 101 R3 road shoes.
Indeed, the Italian company has partnered with Simon Fellows of Artful Kicks to create a limited edition version of their Aria R3 road shoe to commemorate this year’s 101st edition of the Italian Grand Tour.
“Inspired by the most beautiful yet brutal of Grand Tours, we have teamed up with UK footwear artist Artful Kicks to produce a strictly limited-edition custom-painted version of our Aria R3 road shoe to coincide with this year’s Giro d’Italia”, says Fizik.
The limited edition Aria 101 shares all of the same features as Fizik’s regular R3 road shoe such as a laser perforated upper, unidirectional carbon fiber sole, Double Boa IP1-B twin-dial closure system and the brand’s own special insole.
As the name implies, the Aria 101 is limited to just 101 pairs, which retail for $320.

“The Aria 101 is one of Simon Fellow’s, the man behind Artful Kicks, finest works to date, a masterpiece inspired by the Corsa Rosa’s long and illustrious history. Simon wears his passion for road cycling on his sleeve and Aria’s sleek, minimal design proved to be the perfect canvas.”
“Having hand-painted many pairs of fi’zi:k cycling shoes for customers around the world, it was an honor to have been approached directly by fi’zi:k to produce a unique design, on a pair of shoes and a saddle, to celebrate the 101st Giro d’Italia”, Fizik.
“I gain a lot of inspiration from abstract and geometric shapes and combine these with bright colors and sharp lines. The pink accents along the design represent the major towns and cities along the route of the first edition of the Giro in 1909 and of course, we all know the colour of the winner’s jersey!”, Simon Fellows, Artful Kicks.
“Simon’s work of Italianate artistry is as rare as is it beautiful. With a limited edition of just 101 pairs poised to go on sale, he has created a sumptuous, stylish design that will only be available through fizik.com.”
