S-Works Torch

Delivery Icon

We deliver! Just say when and how.

The S-Works Torch is the latest evolution of the winningest footwear in cycling. Using Body Geometry together with biomimicry, data science, and obsessive craftsmanship, we engineered a shoe so thoughtfully constructed that you’ll forget you’re wearing it.

Leveraging data science, we refined every detail of the S-Works Torch’s upper for improved fit and performance. The BOA® cable is shifted down and angled, preventing lift on the ball of the foot and delivering power-enhancing structure while eliminating unwanted pressure or pinching. Adaptive materials allow natural movement of the foot where needed for comfort, while data-driven zonal reinforcement keeps the foot secured for crisp power delivery and optimal efficiency.

Guided by more than 100,000 foot scans from our RETÜL fit data, we recognized that both a standard and a wide carbon base plate would best serve the spectrum of human foot shapes. An internal I-Beam adds stiffness and strength, eliminating the need for additional bracing. The result is a 20-gram weight reduction, enhanced efficiency, and immediate power transfer.

Following RETÜL biomechanical data, we created an asymmetric heel cup that supports natural knee alignment and delivers the positive hold riders love while enhancing comfort by accommodating more room for the Achilles heel.

The S-Works Torch is scientifically crafted to disappear on your feet and off the front.

Good but not great

For some background, I've almost exclusively worn S-Works shoes for the last 11-12 years and have tried every version they've come out with over that time. The S-Works Torch are great, but the new last and wider design is a pretty big departure in fit from previous models. They're very comfortable but I think the S-Works 7 is a superior shoe for racing and hard riding and would love it if Specialized would keep them in the product line as parallel options. Or come out with an S-Works 8 model that uses the prior generation last/shape as an alternative to the Torch. I'll still wear them as they're better than most anything else on the market, but I'll be hanging on to my old and worn out S-Works 7s as my main shoes as long as I can.

Simply the Best

Selecting the right cycling often is a hit or miss proposition. For me over the years it has been a miss. Multiple shoes and product manufacturers and still no luck. Not to mention the $ tossed down the can with shoes that cannot be worn. While I have a unique foot to fit.....as I would assume many do, the Torch is the first shoe out of the box that has not given me one iota of problem. The comfort is unmatched and the fit is amazing - even with a wide forefoot (with bunion) and narrow heel). This shoe is worth every penny and has ended my search for a shoe that works. Works climbing, works fast, works on long rides. Do yourself a favor - buy these shoes.

Good luck if you damage your BOA on the white model!

The BOA's in silver are imposible to replace and the BOA warranty only sends black. If you manage to find silver BOA's S3 available, you have to purchase 4 because the lace colour of the replacements is different than the original, so it's €100 in replacements. Stay away from the model using silver BOA's unless you want a frankenstein shoe if something happens.

Amazing shoes

How can pair of shoes make such a difference! I was faster, much less tired and my bike felt like totally different bike. Can’t understand. My Vittoria Shoes are the same price and have carbon soles. Sworks is only 30g lighter.

Specialized S-WORKS Torch

I tried the SWORKS Vent in a size 42 with the Specialized inserts . Always ridden in 42s , a bit 2 narrow 4 me . Unfortunately in the Heat my feet swell . Gr8 on the indoor bike trainer So went & purchased a New Pair of size 43 SWORKS Torch . Haven't used them as yet going 2 try them on later in the day when my feet are slightly larger @ the end of the day on the Carpet . The Width seems fine, the length might be an issue. Pity there's not 42. 5's When it comes 2 every thing Cycling Specialized lead the Way in 99.9% of all Area's. Perhaps there tail lights could be sorted better especially 4 a SL7 S-WORKS & SL8 SWORKS . Keep u posted 📫 on the Torch SWORKS Shoes

Great shoes - please make wide fit in White

Recently purchased a pair in wide fit - they are hands down the most comfortable cycling shoe I have used. I am very wide in my forefoot and have standard width heel, along with flat arches. Getting comfortable shoes has been a real problem, tried Bont, Shimano etc. and finally these are near perfect, stiff, light weight, super comfortable - my only wish is that Specialized made the wide fit in white colour - Please - then I would rate 5 star!!!

Stellar shoes

I had an endless search for shoes... started with an extremely high arch and includes a slightly wider than normal forefoot. My foot is not "wide" (would feel like i was swimming in traditional wide shoes) and normal width would squeeze down on my forefoot, rubbing the outside by my little piggy. These shoes feel like they were cut for my foot, and I can dial them in for nice snug fit without my foot falling asleep or hotspots. Highly recommended, and I hope that Specialized puts out some new colorways for next season (hint hint!!).
