Rapha And Giro Present The World’s Finest Road Shoes

Using the highest quality components available, the Rapha GT Shoes have been developed to offer a traditional feel but with the modern, cutting-edge performance needed for long rides and optimum power transfer. Updates to the latest edition of the GT Shoes include a new carbon-fibre outsole, and a calfskin toe box and heel counter for durability. The straps now also feature fully-inked edges and there is a reflective Rapha logo on the heel. The heel pieces can also be replaced when worn out.

The shoes are the first to use yak leather, a soft but highly durable upper specifically developed by specialist ecco®. Due to the yak’s ability to survive in severe conditions, yak leather delivers unique benefits including lightness, water resistance, breathability and superb tensile strength. The nature of the uppers mean they will wear in beautifully to become even more comfortable over time. The upper also has a water and stain repellency treatment and is perforated for added moisture movement and texture.

Other details include a machined aluminium buckle (with laser-etched Rapha logo), with padded leather straps and titanium anchors. The shoes are available in white or black with a contrast lower strap, echoing the toe straps of cycling’s golden era.

Key features:

  • Perforated yak upper, exclusively made by ecco®
  • Unidirectional carbon sole
  • Carbon-fibre outsole
  • Cork/EVA footbeds that mould to the shape of the foot
  • Machined aluminum buckle with leather straps and titanium D-rings
  • Timeless Rapha styling

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.
NB: The Rapha GT Shoes may require you to order a size smaller than other brands.

Reviews:

"The GT’s internal detailing puts most other shoes to shame. The leather-lined, padded heel is one of the most comfortable we’ve tried, aided by a padded tongue and a perforated front section that allows your feet to breathe."
BikeRadar ****

"Hell, Fighting Cock is a great $15 bottle and Bookers or Basil Hayden’s is a good mid-range, coming in at $30-$40. Jim Beam is out of the picture, leave that shit to the sports bars. Makers is perfect for a bourbon and ginger, as is Buffalo Trace but Van Winkle Special Reserve, like the Rapha Grand Tour Shoes are just a step up from the rest. Giro‘s line of cycling shoes are like bourbon: there’s something for everyone. It just so happens that the GT shoes are the Van Winkle of the line."

"…they are the best-made production cycling shoes I’ve ever worn and the natural leather has made for an appreciable increase in comfort—especially for a shoe not really designed for my foot."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Ex-Sidi" Used my beloved Sidi's for 12+ years & really hated to give them up. GTs - fit & size similar (actually better). Softens & molds within a couple of rides and outclass the "other brand". White is high maintenance (but so is black CF)...just not a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't believe I waited so long to buy a pair These are by far the most comfotable cycling shoes I have owned. From day one, they fit perfectly. The uppers feel like a well worn pair of house slippers, while the stiff sole transfers power to the pedals with no hot spots. The 3 sizes of insoles make finding the perfect fit easy. They smell great too. The only thing I would change is to use a more durable leather at the toe. I've had scuffs and minor cuts there since my first ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Once you Yak you never go back I just got my second pair of the GT shoes. Love them! They're as comfortable as slippers, stiff, light and durable. My first pair took me through the wilds of Utah, the Stelvio and the Tourmalet. This second pair has new adventures yet to carry me on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the Best This is my 3rd pair of these great shoes. For me comfort for long days in the saddle are more important the the hype of light weight. The leather uppers, ( even though mine are black) are noticeably cooler on hot days and warmer when it is cold and the fit is great for me. My first pair are still going after extensive use and I use them now as my winter shoes covered in Rapha pink overshoes. always good to be seen when the light id poor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fab, beautifully made and so comfortable Rapha are one of the few to still offer a leather shoe and also half sizes, I have wide feet with a relatively high arch and the combination of being able to get the right size made out of something that will actually mould to my foot without being put in an oven first is just amazing. The shoes are beautifully made and that sole is so stiff, even watt goes straight to the pedal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second Pair Just bought the white version and already owned the black version.Decided I wanted a change of shoe as I have been riding for 3 years winter and summer in my black GT shoes . Tried over 10 different styles from Bont, fizik, s works and Giro and just couldn't get the comfort anywhere near as good as my Gt shoes. Finally ordered the white pair and they fit perfect straight from the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from like buttah! man, love these -- i have wide feet and these are the first road shoes i've ever had that fit right off that bat -- the options that come with it are great too, instep, adjusters for cleets, etc. - great, great shoes - (dude, Yak Leaher!)

Hello, Is there a diiference in lenght between all sizes? Or is some halfsizes on the same last to differ only in the wideness? My concern is if the 42.5 and 43 have different lasts.

Asked by: Nrohjb
The different shoes will all have a variation of sizes of both width and length. If you purchase a shoe and this does fit with you own specification ten you can always send these back to us under the free 90 days returns policy for an exchange.

I am a size 46 on Specialized Shoes. Base on the sizing guide I should be a 47 in Rapha. Would you suggest I get this size?

Asked by: Doc Keith
Hi, we do recommend following the size guide for deciding on your shoe. As the shoe is developed with a Giro, the GT shoes will use the same size last as Giros. Should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period.

I have flat feet and a lot of shoes dig into my arch and therefore are extremely uncomfortable. I currently use Shimano shoes which work. How high (and hard) are the embedded arch support in these shoes?

Asked by: JMur
Hi, the embedded arch in this shoe is quite flat. They then come with three different arch supports which combine with the insole to suit a variety of feet.

My exact foot size are 41 / UK7 , i already purchased GT shoes size of 41.5 , so I wonder it's the right size for me ? 

Asked by: Beck
Hi, if you do not already own a pair of cycling shoes in our comparison chart, we would normally recommend you choose your street shoe size. As always, we do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.

As they are made of real leather, do they tend to have more stretch? Hence if you are between sizes, would it be better to go down a size?

Asked by: Bugs
Hi, the shoes are sold in half sizes. If you are in between half sizes, we would recommend you go down to the nearest half size. As always, we have a 90 day returns policy if needed.

I keep reading the sizing runs small therefore is a specialized 43 really Rapha 44 or should i be considering 44.5.

Asked by: Dmamma
Hi, we developed the brand sizing comparison to try and give you the best chance of getting the right size. We recommend you follow the guide. As always we do offer a 90 day returns policy if needed.
