Without compromising on comfort, the Sapphire shoes deliver great performance at an affordable price. The upper is thermobonded for a seamless construction and minimal pressure points, while the hook and loop fastener straps are offset for greater heel support. The use of engineered leather and cycling mesh in the construction of the body allows for a brilliant blend of support, comfort and ventilation. A reflective section on the heel improves low-light visibility, while a Hot Stuff insole boosts breathability and adds arch support. The Ergo Grip 2 outsole features removable studs – designed to maximize mud clearance and give great grip when you get off the bike. The shoes are optimized for use with SPD cleat systems.
