- STANDARD orders for customers with equal size feet, please follow the instructions for perfect fit of your Maccies as described here:
Put two blank sheets of paper with their short edges to a straight wall. Step onto the papers that way both naked heels touch said wall. With a black pen held in upright position copy the circumference of your feets’ silhouettes to the sheets. Done that take a metric ruler and write between the outer lines of your sketch:
X – representing the maximum (horizontal) width within the lines on the papers;
Y - representing the maximum (vertical) length from the bottom of the sheets to the longest toe;
NOTE: Those customers who want to order shoes with bio-mxc² (mid foot) position won’t need to determine Z. – the distance of the first bolt of your cleats to the tip of your shoe.
Please also add your body weight (in kg) as well as the purpose of your shoes such as road, track, TT, triathlon or mountain bike, your preferred cleat system and your shipping address.
- CUSTOMIZING Due to the complex mechanics of the spinning circle, inadequate footwear will corrupt smooth spinning action. In the long run this can open a can or worms for tendinitis, knee-, hip- and even lower and upper spine ailments. In brief, a complex sport like cycling needs perfectly adjusted footwear. There’s absolutely no point in buying shoes which for instance match the longer or bigger foot thus compromise the other one (there’s no problem if you need a longer Maccie!) and so forth. Therefore, those in need will enjoy the opportunity to order their fully made-to-measure- version of our lightweight cycling shoes. You’ll be pleased to read that we now succeeded simplifying our casting procedure and at the same time improved the result. While physically handicapped riders need full prosthetic support, for all other athletes stepping into a crush box and sending it to us is all they’ll need to do to obtain the latest version of our custom-made carbon shoes.
Right after the carbon shells for your feet have been made they’ll be sent to you for a first try-on. Please note that once you approved their fit, shape is accepted and biomac can’t be held liable for additional changes or fit any more. Back at our place, we will mount the upper and voilà – send your custom pair exclusively built to fit your feet. So far, all our customers who took advantage of this technique now call themselves happy ‘Maccie’ – owners as their shoes will put an end to performance setbacks due to poor footwear.
