Designed for the ultimate off-road ride.

Following the launch of its Ares road shoe earlier this year, Specialized turns its attention off-road with the reintroduction of the S-Works Recon cycling shoe, but this time with laces.

Designed with gravel riding in mind, the S-Works Recon Lace combines Specialized’s Body Geometry features with the performance and durability that we’ve come to expect from S-Works, but the introduction of laces is a game-changer.

Giving riders multiple points of cincture to effect precise adjustment, laces offer comfort over a long period of time and allows you to hone in on the perfect fit. What’s more, the shoe has been eradicated of any extraneous hardware, which results in an almost hugging effect on each foot.

Boasting the same high-performance carbon outsole found on other Recon models, the S-Works Recon Lace ensures no pedal power is wasted, while a built-in Varus Wedge and Body Geometry stabilizes the natural movement of the forefoot, which, in turn, improves both foot, knee, and hip alignment too.

Arriving in “Oak Green”, “Aloha” and black, the S-Works Recon Lace is available to buy now from the Specialized webstore, while a white iteration will follow later in the year.

In other news, Nike and UNKNWN have celebrated the release of the LeBron 8 “South Beach” with a Miami-inspired basketball court.
