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 Best Fit - period As I have been going through several different brands of cycle shoes and keeps on coming back to my GT and the climber shoes from Giro x Rapha, I figured why not purchase one more of what already works for me - simply due to the great fit and long last. buy them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic styling Excellent customer service as usual. Product is the normal high quality I love about Rapha

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best suitable not just for climbers When you want to compare with climbers, relective climbers and GT shoe, this has a softer "leather" than reflective but not as "cushion" than GT. The soles of all three are the same but normal climbers are the lightest and feel the lightest. I don't miss the buckle of GT but yet the Velcro is very secure and will not get loosen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some of the best shoes i've ever used I bought this pair in the summer, i was a bit sceptical of the velcro straps at first but had seen the good reviews and they haven't been any bother. They're nice and light, nicely detailed, super stiff and really comfortable. The Rapha cross brand sizing chart is rubbish though, i followed the chart and got a pair that were too big and had to exchange for a pair my normal shoe size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look good, Feel good, Play good. Judging on the title you can see I was obviously super stoked about the shoes' aesthetics. Even if the shoes were the most uncomfortable things on the planet I would still give these shoes 5 stars; thats just how sharp these kicks look. The Rapha sizing chart was absolutely perfect. They weren't lying about the weight, these things are light and breathable. I've been riding with shimano rp9s and have been amazed at how much better my legs feel at the end of my rides due to a lighter and WAYYYYY more comfortable shoe. If you have some extra cash you shouldn't spend it on any other part of your kit/bike.

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.

Hi, I wear a Fizik R1 size 43. What is the equivalent size for the climbers shoe? At your brand sizing conversion chart you recon 44.5, but in a similar question you suggest same size as Fizik. I am a little confused, please help

Do these shoes share the 'last' of the GT shoes? ie are they similar in width/volume?

The shape, width same as gt shoe?

Asked by: Marcus28
Hi, both shoes are manufactured with the same last for each of the different sizes. However, the leather does have more malleability and suppleness to it.
