Be more visible when riding at night

The Reflective Climber's Shoes are made with low weight and ventilation as priorities, at the same time as providing high levels of visibility through fully reflective uppers.

The uppers are constructed with a reflective 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. Reflective low-profile hook and loop fasteners are chosen for their simplicity and minimal bulk. The three straps allow the rider to easily adjust tension across the foot.

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. In contrast pink, the sole completes the RCC livery.

Please note: If you already own a pair of Climber’s Shoes, the reflective material used in the Reflective Climber’s Shoes is slightly stiffer, and will require a longer bedding-in period.

Worn by pros

Developed with experts in biomechanics and footwear design, the Rapha Climber's Shoes have been rigorously tested by the best riders in the world.

Team Sky riders have worn the Climber’s Shoes in all weather conditions, clocking up countless kilometres in the process. The result is a shoe that has become a staple item of Team Sky kit, providing exceptional performance and optimum power transfer in challenging mountainous terrain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Style and quality Excellent shoes but don't trust on the website sizing conversion. I'm 42 eur on sworks and rapha suggested 43.5 eur which was to big. 42 was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish Climber Shoes I was so happy with my climber shoes that I just bought a second pair!!! Very stylish and comfortable!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what you need, buy them now! Sublime styling, super comfort and near weightlessness. I like to be able to adjust shoes on the bike and the straps make this a easy adjustment. I cant rave on enough about these, they are just awesome! Super solid base, which means great power transfer and super comfy, probably will be used far more than for just climbing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best looking performance shoes... IMHO For these who appreciate good design, i.e. Nice blend of form and function. Buy and you won't regret. Re sizing - wear 46 fi'zi:k, 46.5 Rapha fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feet not so hot anymore. Purchased shoes not for low profile/light weight, but for larger holes in the uppers. These shoes breathe better and my feet sweat less than my other Giro shoes. Fit is identical to Giro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally found the perfect shoe! After ordering and returning about 4 pairs of GT shoes over the years I'd given up on Rapha shoes ever fitting me or being comfortable, even though my club mates have raved about them for ever. This is the first pair of climbers shoes I'd tried and they are ace. Super fit, not too thick and heavy around the ankles like the GTs, lightweight, stiff, and very shiny in the light. Needed no 'breaking in', they were good to go from the first ride. The reflective surface is brilliant, great for visibility. Very happy with them. Just doffed one start as I think boa closures would be better - the velcro straps are a bit basic.

Hi, I wear ladies size 39 specialised S Works shoes and the size chart says for Rapha 40.5 would that be correct? 

Asked by: LouW
Our size chart is accurate so the 40.5 should be the appropriate fit. If the size does not meet with your requirements then you will be able to return these to us under our 90 day returns policy.

I am confused,my sidi wire carbon Venice size. 41 (not really very tight fit) my specialized s works 6 size 41 ( a little more looser than my sidi..both comfortable though I know it suppose to be very fitting.my question is 41.5 (rapha) is tat perfect?

Asked by: Diamond
A Climber's Shoe in 41 would be equivalent to the Sidi 41, so if you required a tighter fit, you would require a 40.5 rather than the 41.5

Hi, I am wearing Specialized Sworks shoe size 43. What size should I wear for this? Same size as well?

Asked by: Nic Tlc
A size 44 would be the appropriate size based on this information. We have a sizing chart on the product page that highlights the sizes of most major brands against the Climbers Shoes to ensure you can select the correct pair

How does the fit compare to Bont's? They look narrow.

Asked by: Joe Saroni
The Climber's Shoes are a slim fit. Each of our shoes has a size comparison guide for each manufacturer to give a more comprehensive idea of which shoe to select.

Hi Rapha, these shoes are marked as NEW. What exactly is new about them comparing to the old ones? I bought the white wit grey velcro en black with pink velcro two years ago.

Asked by: BertJanss
Hi, the shoes are exactly the same as the previous model apart from the reflective treatment. The fit and sole are as the versions you mentioned.
