Blue Rapha Reflective Climber's Shoes

7 Feb 2017
Verdict:

Bold new colour from Rapha in the shoe department

"Well, it's one for the money, Two for the show, Three to get ready, Now go, cat, go...?"

Rapha has just launched a new version of its Climber's shoe, and as well as being reflective - something we've seen before in this shoe's design - it comes in a brilliant blue. 

An Easton EC90 SLXII carbon sole, developed from the one on Rapha's GT shoe, sits at the base of the shoe, and comes with the ability to replace the rubber mounts for walking. The upper is made of synthetic leather, but with a reflective backing, and typically of Rapha shoes comes littered with ventilation holes.

It's the colour we're concerned with here though. The blue (which is admittedly more subtle than these pictures reflect) is quite a tasteful colour, and certainly makes a change from the usual black or white that proliferates in cycling shoes.

We'll have a full review of the shoe up later in the year once we've given them some proper testing.

£280, rapha.cc
