Quoc Pham Hardcourt Shoe Now Online

October 16, 2014
quoc pham hardcourt

I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a pair of Quoc Pham‘s bike polo specific shoes, called the Hardcourt, ever since Urban Velo reported on them from Eurobike 2013. A few months ago I found myself on the Quoc Pham website hoping to see if the shoes ever came to fruition. I was disappointed to find out that they were nowhere to be found, and came to the conclusion that the Eurobike preview was as far as the shoes made it. And then, in a lazy day off earlier this week, I found myself browsing the Mission Workshop website, and BOOM! The Hardcourt is there and for sale!

For only $199, these beautifully designed shoes can give you extra style points while on the court. Use this link HERE to pick up a pair for yourself. Hopefully these are as functional as they are fashionable, because I’d love to get these on my feet!

If you’re from North American, then you probably recognize a couple of faces from the championship team (RompeBolas) at the 1st Latin American Bike Polo Championship held last weekend in Bogota, Colombia. Diego of Mucho Take It Easy fame and  Pelon (formally of Los Cuatreros) joined forces with Memo from Mexico City to win the tournament. They did so by coming back from the losers bracket to beat Underdogs (Suju, Garga, and Wagner of Sao Paulo, Brazil) twice in both final games.

To see some behind the scene coverage of the tournament, be sure to check #LAHBPC2014 on Instagram. Full results from the tournament can be found on Podium, HERE!
