RCC Climber's Shoes
Shoes to be seen in. Worn by Team Sky riders in the world’s greatest races, the Climber’s Shoes are now available in a highly reflective version with a contrast pink sole, exclusive to Rapha Cycling Club members.
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.

Hey I wear Sidi omegas, and used to wear fizik r3s. Both in a 9.5 size, my question is the sidis are a little bit more comfortable then the fiziks were I think because my foot is borderline wide. Would these shoes work for me or are they to narrow?
After many miles of use I need another pair of these (just ordered). Really great shoes, but do you have any tips on protecting the tip of the toes from scuffing? First pair scuffed up almost instantly, quicker than any other shoes I've had.
