Our review

Wonderfully comfortable and stiff enough to race. Great value too

Darth Vader has another choice of shoe for his racing team’s Stormtrooper domestiques other than the Shimano R086.Though we have to say, the yellow Mavic tags and logos are a nice touch.


Combining stiff soles with super-soft synthetic uppers reinforced in all the right places, this is a lovely shoe. You’ll be gutted when they get their first scuff – but they are also available in a more dirt-friendly graphite if you can’t bear the constant wiping these need.

The fit is comfy and slipper-like, with a high back and tight heel-cup, and the broad top strap is a triumph in distributing forces across the top of your foot no matter how tight you ratchet it.


The two-lever buckle is a tidy design and easy to use with just finger and thumb. The vented, glass fibre-reinforced nylon sole also has bolts for all the common cleat systems.
