13.12.18 - The Weekend Cycling Sneaker
World’s First Eco Performance Cycling Shoe Made with Bloom Algae Foam Features Clip-in Compatibility, a Watertight Outsole, Elastic Laces and Go-Anywhere Looks.
London, UK Cycling shoe brand Quoc today announced ‘The Weekend’, a new type of performance sneaker inspired by cycling’s colour and culture, made in part with Bloom’s plant-based, EVA-replacement foam.
The Weekend combines the comfort, style and agility of a sports sneaker with clipless pedal compatibility, reflectivity and easy-in elastic laces that make tying and retying a thing of the past.
“For the past few years, we’ve been making city cycling footwear that works on and off the bike, helping riders around the world transition from pedal to pavement in style and comfort,” said founder and designer Quoc Pham, of the company’s latest cycling-focused shoe. “With The Weekend, we wanted to redefine the casual cycling shoe. Which is why we partnered with Bloom, a company in Mississippi that transforms green water into clean water to make performance foams. Which means that for every Weekend we make, 395 half litre bottles of clean water will have been returned to the environment.”
To better navigate changeable conditions, The Weekend features a watertight outsole to help keep feet dry and comfortable, and a strengthened mid-board to balance the dual demands of walking and cycling.
Launching on Kickstarter on March 12th, The Weekend will be available in olive, cream and black.

An avid cyclist and honours graduate of Central St. Martins, Quoc was founded in 2009 by namesake and founder, Quoc Pham, after he found that traditional performance cycling shoes were not best suited to the to and fro nature of city cycling. Quoc's goal was simple: to design a cycling shoe that combined comfort, support, elegance and style for the daily ride.
The first Quoc urban cycling shoes combined the performance and functionality of the best contemporary bicycle footwear with the style of a casual dress shoe. Over the years the Quoc range has expanded to meet the demands of different cyclists, extending to road cycling shoes and gravel bike shoes. But the Quoc ethos remains the same: to create beautifully made, stylish cycling footwear for both on and off the bike.
