New Classic & Explore Shoes
For Lachlan Morton, comfort always comes first. “I used the Rapha Climber’s Shoes for two years and really liked them because they’re very comfortable. For me that’s the biggest thing, because if you have uncomfortable feet…. Ufff.”
The EF Education First Pro Cycling rider has been wear testing the new Rapha Classic Shoes since last Autumn, and he’s taken them far beyond their expected use: racing in the UCI WorldTour, mountainbiking, and even bikepacking.
“I got a pair last September and still had some races to do, so I thought ‘why not just start wearing them now?’ They were already an improvement on the Climber’s Shoes. I’ve done three or four tours in them now and they’re definitely race pedigree – light and stiff.”
“I then wore them on a trip across Eastern Europe in November with my brother [for the new Rapha Outskirts III film, released later this Spring]. Whether walking in shops, on the bike or cruising through hotel lobbies trying to find a room, they were great. I gave them a good run on the mountain bike over the winter too. No issues.”
