Rocket 7 Custom Cycling Shoes are 100% hand made in the USA and have been chosen by many top athletes all around the world. Our shoes are arguably the lightest, stiffest and most comfortable in the world (180 grams size 40). We integrate an innovative shock dampening system into each of our shoes that allows us to add additional carbon fiber to stiffen up the shoe while keeping them comfortable for the longer rides.

ROCKET 7 CUSTOM CYCLING SHOES

Since 1999, Rocket 7 has been handcrafting cycling shoes in the USA with the finest materials available. Being passionate cyclists ourselves, our mission at Rocket 7 is to provide cyclists around the world with premium cycling footwear, offering optimum fit, performance, and comfort.  In over 20 years of cycling, I was intrigued in a truly handmade customized shoe that was created from a foam molded kit.  I believe that an orthotic can greatly reduce and prevent injuries while walking, so the mechanics of pedaling require the same stabilization to optimize power transfer and prevent repetitive cadence motions.  These shoes are personally made to fit your specific anatomical design (leg length or size differences) or any health needs (neuromas). Rocket 7 shoes have the lowest stack height available with one of the lightest shoes on the market at only 180 grams. The three closure system is very basic without buckles, but is effective for “strapping a comfortable fit” every time. Rocket 7 uses a high quality epoxy resin 3K tow carbon fiber, that is wet laid by hand in a state of the art lab not a massed produced factory.  This process ensures stiffness and an incredibly lightweight carbon fiber sole.   The shoes are not flashy like many other shoes on the market with a simple color design combination and hand stitching to ensure quality craftsmanship. Their motto is “Function over Fashion” which says a lot about creating a shoe that functionally works and performs on the road with showing off.

Rocket 7 realizes the amount of demands that cyclists place on the feet and are a fully committed and passionate about hand crafting a shoe to give maximum performance and proper biomechanical alignment at the same time.
