Technical cycling shoe designed for climbers

Using materials and construction techniques that prioritise low weight and ventilation, the Climber’s Shoes offer cutting-edge performance and an understated, classic aesthetic.

The uppers are made from a mesh-backed synthetic leather, chosen for its low weight and exceptional breathability. Retaining the tensile strength required to support a foot during intense efforts, the mesh lining also allows sweat to evaporate from inside of the shoe. The leather’s perforations enable fresh air to circulate, leaving the foot feeling cool. Low-profile hook and loop fasteners are chosen for their simplicity and minimal bulk.

The EC90 SLXII sole is an evolution of that found on the Rapha GT Shoes. It keeps weight and stack height to a minimum, incorporates a replaceable heel protector, and is shaped to complement Giro’s SuperNatural Fit™ footbeds that allow riders to choose their preferred level of arch support.

NB: Please only try the shoes on a carpeted surface without cleats, as we are unable to accept returns with scratched or scuffed soles, thank you.

Please note: Gift wrap is not available on this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features Just purchased and have only worn a couple times but the fit and look are second to none! And although these are slightly more expensive than other high-end shoes there's something to be said by standing out in your local club ride.

Hi there, I'm a 42 Sidi and the size guide with my last pair recommended at 41.5. It now recommends a 42. Has the sizing changed? Or just the size guide? My previous pair were a 42 and slightly too big, so I'm minded to try 41.5.

Can the Velcro be renewed once it begins to fail?

Asked by: Specialissima1
A local cobbler may be able to replace the Velcro on these shoes. This would not fall under the Rapha Repairs Service.

Are these suiten for cold weather as long as you have some woolen socks?

Asked by: Jeppai
Hi, I find these shoes a prefect all year round shoe with the right adaptation. In the summer they pair up well with a lightweight sock and in the winter they should be paired with warm winter socks and the appropriate shoe covers.
