2013 Specialized S-Works road bike shoe spy shot on Alberto Contador - photo by

Spotted by an eagle-eye’d reader on Andre Meganck’s Twitter/Yfrog photo stream (photo credit to him) is this little pic of Alberto Contador taking the win at the first mountain stage of the Tour de San Luis while rocking some prototype 2013 Specialized S-Works road shoes.

“Contador, like many of our pros, help us test various prototypes,” says Spec’s PR man Ben Delaney. “He’s been testing a new project for us over the last several months, working with our shoe design engineering teams.”

So, while this may not be a final version you see here, we’re diggin’ the offset upper opening and tongue with a relief groove to keep things from bunching up. The toe looks to be getting a rather large mesh vent section, too. Overall, they’re looking like they’ll be pretty lightweight and rather slipper-like in appearance. More as we get it.

Great matchup going on between Levi and Contador, with Levi 1st overall still, at T de San Luis.

It’s too bad Team Trek didn’t keep Levi; I would have retained Levi over Horner.

Was it designed in cooperation with their lawyer?

Turns out Specialized is suing themselves over the proprietary use of the color white.

Getting old w/ all this Specialized suing this and that snubs.

Give them credit for at least supporting a lot of cyclists at the professional level.
