Setting off on the Torch 3.0 Road shoe design process, Specialized had a goal to create a performance, feature-packed, top-end shoe. The challenge, however, was pulling this off at a palatable price.

To achieve this, Specialized utilized three strategically placed materials on the uppers that are welded together—TPU and mesh in the front and synthetic leather in the rear. This makes for a more comfortable and supportive front of the shoe. A stiff rear and heel cup, meanwhile, lock down your heel and keep all of your watts going into the pedals as efficiently as possible. This refined upper is combined with Specialized's FACT carbon fiber sole to further ensure an efficient power transfer. Finally, we topped the Torch 3.0 off with two Boa® S2-SV Snap dials for zonal closure, and a precise fit that leads to all-day comfort.


  • Body Geometry sole construction and footbeds are ergonomically designed and scientifically tested to boost power, increase efficiency, and reduce chance of injury by optimizing hip, knee, and foot alignment
  • FACT™ carbon composite sole and torsion box construction is directionally rigid for outstanding power transfer: Stiffness Index 8.5
  • Dual Boa® S2-SV Snap dial closure for on-the-fly micro-adjustment, backed by the Boa® Lifetime Guarantee
  • Mesh, TPU, and synthetic layer upper are placed in specific zones for comfort and lock-down, and are thermobonded for a superior fit
  • Standard Fit for support and all-day comfort
  • Three-bolt cleat pattern fits all major road pedals

Specialized Torch 3.0 Road Shoes (Black) (41.5)
Nice shoe, but too small. The shoe itself seemed much thinner than it needed to be for the size, so you may want to go up at least half a size, but it seemed to me like I would have had to go up 1 to 2 sizes to have a normal width of a shoe for me.

These shoes would be great but the Boa dial is hard to open.I don't mind the closure part of the dial as I have pop up Boas on my current shoes and no issues. I am dealing with a wider foot and this did not work. So sad
