Torch 2.0 Road Shoes

The Torch 2.0 Road shoes are all about comfort—well, comfort and performance that is. Due to the materials, road shoes often feel stiff and uncomfortable. We decided to address this annoyance head on, though. To do so, we've implemented a 100% mesh and TPU construction on the Torch 2.0 that allows for more wiggle room in the toe box and a less constrictive, sock-like feel. The upper is then paired with our medium-stiffness FACT carbon sole and a rubber heel and toe that provide the perfect degree of off-the-bike traction. For the closure, we added a single lightweight Boa® IP1 dial that features tool-free snap replacement capability, while also providing simple, on-the-fly micro-adjustments.

Doubt anyone would find these comfortable

Look great. Wide enough. Really wanted to like them but the tongue is too long making them unwearable due to rubbing at ankle joint. Couldn’t wear them for even the shortest ride. Can’t believe Specialized has put their name to these shoes. I’ve worn Specialized for the last 15 years and now have changed because of these shoes.

Not a good fit

I wear a 11&1/2 so tied on a 46(12) and it was too long so I thought the 45.5 would be the right size. After several rides it was apparent that the shoe box was too narrow and was pressing on the top of my right foot. My feet are not wide but these shoes are not good for me. Perhaps if you have slender feet they’ll work.

Great upgrade from Torch 1

I have ridden with Torch 1 shoes for over two years. They are excellent shoes, but the Torch 2 is even better, It has an improved boa system and stronger heel cup. It is snugger with a more stable fit. At the sale price, it is a bargain. I couldn’t be happier with Specialized quality, both in my Specialized bike and shoes.

Nice update after 20 years...

Was a bit nervous about switching off of my 20+ yr old Sidi's, but, damn, if these shoes ain't the bomb. Huge toe box, my feet are much cooler now and I can actually flex my toes. Much lighter than the Sidi's (albeit different vintage). Works great with LOOK KEO cleats. They center nicely, and I run the float reds. Highly recommend these shoes.

Strong performer and excellent fit at price point

Quality workmanship and materials. Single BOA + Velcro are sufficient for secure fit. Comfortable, after adding 1/2 to standard US shoe size. Recommend and would/will purchase again.

Not sure what ballerina feet most people have

I have some Recon shoes from specialized in size 9 and they fit decent, so I thought ordering the same size with these road shoes would work as well. But alas, they are too narrow. My feet are exceedingly normal and not wide in any way, but these still do not fit. Length is great, but width is not. Also another annoying thing is the tongue is too long so it digs into the top of your foot. Not sure how they came to this design cause I can't imagine how that works for anyone's foot. Nice shoes otherwise and insanely stiff with the carbon soles. Definitely try on in person if possible.

Good fit. Looks nice on

Good fit. Looks nice on a leg. Yet keep in mind if you get under the rain these shoes stays wet, and don't have any ventilation on the bottom. So you'll keep cycling with all water in. Inner part of the shoes pretty hot for summer, I cycled in +25 C it was a bit uncomfortable.
