Quoc Gran Tourer sand shoe review: Luxurious lace-ups with a teenager misstep

In 2009, Quoc Pham set out to build a improved civic cycling shoe. His initial offerings were stylish and classic-looking laced leather numbers, before expanding to embody a suede SPD-compatible Derby and a some-more casual, sneaker-like Hardcourt Hightop and Urbanite boots.

So in 2017, with a phenomenon of a opening highway shoe, the Night, it was something of a reinvention for a association – now named simply ‘Quoc’. The Gran Tourer, launched on Kickstarter in Mar 2018, is arguably Quoc’s best-received recover to date, stability a brand’s adore event with lace-up closures while adding an brave spirit.


Since Giro expelled a Empire in 2012, a laced cycling shoe marketplace has turn an increasingly swarming space. There’s a lot to like about laces – they’re light, offer a some-more accurate and tuneable fit than many velcro or BOA closures, and can be some-more easy of radical feet shapes. After a prolonged hunt for a gentle highway shoe we transitioned to laces with a Empire in early 2014, and haven’t looked back.

As a cycling courtesy has shifted a courtesy to sand and tour riding, with ever-increasing ardour, it was healthy that laces went along for a journey. The timeless Giro Empire VR90 is a heading indication in that category, with newer offerings like Rapha’s Explore and Quoc’s Gran Tourer completing a triptych of high-end lace-up models perplexing to grasp roughly a same thing.

Quoc is by distant a smallest of a 3 brands, though that isn’t to contend that a charity is reduction considered. It was, according to Quoc, an 18-month routine of prototyping to move a shoe to market, with dual pivotal areas – a outsole and midsole – immoderate a bulk of a growth timeline.

When a rubber meets a road

Closures competence be what anyone notices first, though a core of any cycling shoe is a sole. On a highway shoe, a settlement brief is partially elementary – ramp adult stiffness, prune behind weight – though when we supplement reason and need to cruise walkability, things get a tiny some-more complicated.

The Gran Tourer’s rubber outsole uses what Quoc calls a GravelGrip formula, forming a sincerely open step settlement that sheds sand and sand well, usually removing tender in gummy sand or fraudulent clay. There’s no proceed to fit spikes during a toe, that competence order them out for some cyclocross riders, though that’s usually expected to be a dealbreaker for a tiny minority of riders and roving conditions.

The Gran Tourer’s solitary facilities lifted though unnumbered ridges to support in cleat placement.

True to a name, Quoc’s GravelGrip is grippy, bettering good to opposite surfaces including discriminating petrify and immaculate steel – we won’t go skating into a urinal tray wearing these, that is a happy bonus, both in a span of boots and in life some-more generally.

They’re also reduction differing underfoot when walking on footpaths and around town, creation them a many conventionally shoe-like opening cycling shoe I’ve ever used, and a usually one that doesn’t seem like it’d be a large pain in a jerk to wear for a full day during a office. (Note: I’ve also used Chrome and DZR civic boots extensively, that have a slight corner off a bike, though don’t offer scarcely a same turn of opening as a Quoc Gran Tourers on a bike).

Part of a credit there should go to a carbon-composite mid-sole, a underline carried over from a Night highway shoes. Rather than adopting a stiffness-at-all-costs approach, Quoc’s midsole has a bit of flex in it, improving a Gran Tourer’s walkability substantially, and creation them a good choice for furloughed and bikepacking adventures. They’re not merely tear-jerking when riding, though behind to behind with a span of Empire VR90s or Rapha Explores, there’s a tiny reduction zing to a energy transfer. It didn’t worry me – indeed, we roughly elite it, though your formula competence vary.

When it comes to weight, a Gran Tourers tip a beam during 360g per shoe, incompatible cleats (for a distance 42.5 we reviewed). That’s usually 20g or so heavier than Giro’s Empire VR90 or Rapha’s Explore — ideally respectable.

Discreet contemplative markers on a heels are a good touch, nonetheless they aren’t as contemplative as offerings from other brands – including, notably, Giro.

The uppers are a curtsy to a company’s roots, both visually and technologically. Quoc Pham, a association founder, is of Vietnamese origin, and a uppers underline a pointed Vietnamese Tigerstripe deception settlement on dual of a 4 colour-schemes offered. But notwithstanding a company’s Vietnamese heritage, it’s a clearly British brand, so it creates clarity that there’s a lot of care given to how a boots perform in soppy conditions.

Ventilation is minimal – tiny pores are lazer cut into a seamless upper, a solitary is totally sealed, and a tongue is gussetted to retard accession of water. I’ve been kicking around in these boots given March, so I’ve nonetheless to see how they perform in a feverishness of an Australian summer, though they’ve positively finished a good pursuit of gripping my feet dry by a inlet of winter.

The Gran Tourer’s uppers are also hard-wearing, and simply wiped down to keep them looking fresh. A rubberised dress around a bottom of a shoe’s top provides additional insurance and aids in waterproofing – next a black line of rubber, a shoe is totally waterproof.

Of course, all a good settlement touches in a universe can usually be appreciated if a shoe fits comfortably, and it’s here that a Gran Tourer has some quirks. The sizing operation is some-more singular than that charity by bigger companies, with no half sizes accessible – a run is from 37.5–46.5, with jumps of an whole European size. And compared to some-more mainstream brands that are widely stocked in internal bike shops a universe over, Quoc has usually a handful of sell partners, definition it’s many expected to be an online purchase.

There is courteous patron support to assistance with fit questions, as good as a sizing chart, though there’s unequivocally no proceed of meaningful accurately how a shoe will fit before pulling it on. I’m a 43 in a Giro, and Quoc suggested a 42.5, that was both roomier in a paw and felt a reason longer. Quoc says that a shoe can accommodate feet adult to an EE width, so maybe it wasn’t startling that it felt partially cavernous beside a narrower Empires I’m used to. At initial we felt a shoe was a half distance too big, though I’ve grown used to it — whenever we switch behind to my Empire VR90s, we now feel too tighten in a toebox, creation me consternation either they were unequivocally usually too parsimonious a whole time.

Heel reason is comparatively discreet, relying some-more on a lacing to keep a shoe in place and movement-free, with a movable uppers adapting good to a contours of a foot. Quoc’s law lacing complement is some-more crafty than a company’s rivals, however, locking tragedy off in certain areas and charity a firm, repeatable hold. It takes a bit of time to get used to, generally if you’re swapping between a series of other laced boots as we am, though I’ve come to unequivocally like it. Lace ends are tucked underneath an elasticated loop on a tongue, as with many other laced cycling shoes.

Whilst a fit of a shoe competence be a tiny ambiguous, we feel organisation in my self-assurance that a ‘Natural Fit’ insole is a diseased point. Other than a lifted metatarsal symbol in a midfoot, it’s roughly totally prosaic – if you’ve got high arches, you’ll not find many to like here. The miss of arch support, for me, manifested in instability in a pedal stroke, and unchanging hotspots opposite a mid-foot.

I persisted with a granted insoles for a few weeks, before giving adult and swapping a insoles over to a span of G8 Performance orthotic insoles with roughly some-more support, that also took adult some of a additional volume in a shoe, improving a fit and flattering many elucidate any discomfort.

Compared to a crafty tractable insoles charity by Giro and Rapha, or a accumulation of footbeds charity by Specialized, Quoc’s medium charity feels like a misstep on an costly span of shoes. For what it’s worth, when we asked Quoc about this, they charity that they “might offer variable arch insoles in a future” – review into that whatever we like.

Not a Natural Fit for me, sadly.

Tying up

I’ve been, for a many part, unequivocally tender with a Quoc Gran Tourer, and they seem to have been flattering rapturously perceived elsewhere. They also exceeded their Kickstarter target, suggesting that a shoe now has a decent series of confident riders removing about in them. The Gran Tourers have turn my go-to for prolonged days, generally if we know that I’m going to be doing a bit of walking.

They’re not a inexpensive shoe by any stretch. The £219.00 seeking cost puts them during around US$275 / AU$400, that is resolutely in a top row of a marketplace – somewhat some-more costly than Rapha’s Explores and some-more than a third some-more than a Empire VR90s. However, they offer a feeling of luxury, both in their on-bike comfort and their presentation, that includes a plush span of thick merino hosiery and a shoe bag. The continuance of a boots has also proven glorious over a march of my testing, extenuating some of a expense.

The Gran Tourers come with a drawstring shoe bag, and a span of cosy merino socks.

That said, if you’re ponying adult that many income for a span of cycling shoes, we would design them to be flattering many perfect, and a simple insole strikes me as underneath a turn of a rest of a shoe.

Fit is a personal thing – we get it – and maybe Quoc’s insole works for a lot of riders. It didn’t work for me, though distinct offerings from Rapha or Giro or Specialized or Shimano, there’s no try to accommodate a farrago of opposite fits. I’m advantageous that we had a gangling set of insoles that we like, to untap a intensity of what are differently glorious shoes, though we shouldn’t have had to.

The Gran Tourers come flattering tighten to giving me usually what we wish in a span of sand shoes. we usually wish a same care had been given to a insole as has been to a glorious outsole, midsole and upper.
