South African cyclists will soon have access to the premium Spanish brand, LUCK® shoes, following an agreement signed by cycling distribution company Positive Sports Solutions.

Available to all countries in the Southern African Development Community, the SA company has embarked on a policy of providing quality sports equipment at an affordable price and this is the latest deal they have signed.

In tandem with Cheristar under businessman Wihan Snyman, which imports the brand from Spain, the LUCK® shoes will be available from the first week in November.

Snyman said the Spanish firm, which was established in 1990 by Juan Jose Pascual, had developed a reputation for producing highly rated cycling shoes.

Positive Sports Solutions spokesman David Pieterse said the imported products covered a variety of disciplines, including track and road racing, mountain-biking and enduro, plus road and mountain-bike triathlons.

“Cyclists who would like to inquire about the LUCK® shoes and other sports brands available can visit the Positive Sports Solutions website [positivesportsolutions.co.za], whereafter a personal relationship will be established with the customer,” he said.

Importantly for cyclists, the most popular colours and models in each range will be available in South Africa, while customised products are available on order, with delivery made in three weeks.

“We can cater for all types of requirements, big or small and extra wide, as well as varus and valgus correction,” said Snyman.

The shoes are made from a range of different micro fibres and real leather in some of the higher-end products, he added.

“Because the shoes are all hand-made, the quality is of the highest possible standard and the prices compare favourably with normal cycling shoes. The main difference is that the LUCK® shoes all have carbon soles.”

He said there had been a big demand from the South African market for the Spanish-made brand.
