“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,

“It’s always great to see a brand try something new, and it’s even better to see it turn out well. That’s exactly the case with the Rapha Classic shoes, which whilst being a first attempt, the Classic have the comfort of a brand that’s been doing it for years. That’s the reason they’re on our Editor’s Choice list for 2019.”
