Zpurs: A spur to organised footwear

zpurs

Zpurs is a unique and simple way of transporting your shoes, boots or high heels however you travel.

British firm Neatcleats has developed Zpurs as a simple clipping mechanism for just about every type of shoe that allows you to clip your footwear wherever you like. For those who use cleats, they’re a great way to carry alternative shoes for your destination.

The clever system frees up space in your bag, allows shoes to breathe, helps prevent bacteria growth and stops your bag from getting dirty and smelly. You can order a set of Zpurs via Kickstarter for only £13 and we have two to give away.

To be in with a chance of winning a set of Zpurs, please leave a comment at the bottom of this page and we’ll pick two names next week.

With 11 Tour de France stage wins to his name, Andre Greipel knows a thing or two about cycling gear. Seen here with his Zpur…

ETA cycle insurance

Ethical cycle insurance

On the face of it, one cycle insurance policy is much like another, but the devil is the detail. Check your small print for so-called ‘new-for-old’ replacement – many insurers use the term, but if your bicycle is more than a few years old, devalue it severely. This means you are left out of pocket when you come to replace it.

With ETA cycle insurance, however old the bike, if it’s stolen you get enough to buy a new model. Furthermore, every cycle insurance policy you buy from us helps support the work of the ETA Trust, our charity campaigning for a cleaner and safer transport future. Little wonder The Good Shopping Guide has judged us to be Britain’s most ethical insurance company.

    I like to keep my kit tidy and my rule is: “A place for everything, everything in its place!”.

    This would make a great, new place for my shoes please.

    I really like the flexibility of this design, as it would seem to suit all types of shoes and not depend on cleat type.

    Would really help with somewhere to put my shoes when I’m cycling to meetings. Fingers (and toes) crossed.

    Perfect for hanging up when abroad to stop scorpions and snakes crawling in overnight. Normally I have to tie the shoelaces to something!

    Even if I win, not sure you’ll get me in jeans shorts. As a keen runner and cyclist often got trainers tied to a small running rucksack
