Classic Shoes

The last word in comfort.

Description

The Classic Shoe has been designed from the ground up to be the most comfortable choice for road cycling.

Previously, exposed carbon soles were slippy and prone to damage. Our strong, lightweight carbon sole transfers power when pedalling, but comes complete with a robust TPU outsole that protects your shoes and reduces the chances of slipping when you’re off the bike.

The sculpted heel cup hugs your foot, keeping the shoe securely and comfortably in place, on and off the bike, with a low-cut upper that avoids rubbing your ankles. The midfoot is hugely adjustable thanks to a unique double-wall lacing system, with durable eyelets integrated in the shoe’s upper and robust laces, for a secure fit that’s tailored to your foot. Adjustable arch support allows for a range of foot shapes while a spacious toe box with a toe strap for micro adjustments means all-day comfort when riding.

Ridden for thousands of kilometres in testing, this shoe delivers the last word in comfort.

“Rapha’s new double wall lacing system draws the two sides of the shoe together to surround your foot really comfortably. In fact, these shoes are superbly comfortable all round.”

4.5/5 Mat Brett, road.cc
