Specialized S-Works Ares Road Shoes

Introducing Specialized's brand-new, top of the podium road shoe that has been officially deemed the fastest road shoe they have ever created. Named after the Greek God of war, Specialized's all-new Ares road shoe packs a powerful punch that's sure to impress. Designed to incorporate the brand-new FACT Powerline™ carbon outsole, the fastest, lightest and stiffest outer sole that the Rider-First Engineering team at Specialized have ever produced. The carbon outsole prevents your foot from rolling and consequently lowers the pressure put through your tendons, particularly when you're pushing some serious watts, therefore reducing your overall chance of injury whilst increasing your power transfer: it's a win-win. At the back of the shoe, you will find an innovative Padlock™ heel cup design that helps to improve your acceleration. The material used to construct the shoe is made to prevent stretching when fitting the shoe to your foot, it also remains true to Specialized's “every watt is sacred" moto whilst providing high-quality ventilation. Finally, the shoe secures your foot into place with the high rider rated BOA® dials, that through one-millimeter micro-adjustments make on-the-fly adjustments as easy as when you're sitting on the bottom step of your staircase.

Full Specification



  • The key to more comfort, fewer injuries, and higher power output comes from Specialized's ergonomically designed, scientifically tested Body Geometry features—Longitudinal Arch, Varus Wedge, and personalized insoles with a Metatarsal Button. When used in harmony, these three features align the hip, foot, and knee, while also limiting medial/lateral knee movement and maintaining good circulation down to your toes.


  • Patent-pending closure design secures the foot for extreme, out-of-saddle efforts, locking the metatarsals and preventing lateral roll.


  • Dyneema® is sandwiched between layers of synthetic and TPU to create no-stretch zones for the ultimate connection and comfort.


  • Specialized's stiffest and lightest FACT Powerline™ carbon plate maximizes power transfer: Stiffness Index 15.


  • Independent BOA® Li2 Fit System for on-the-fly micro-adjustment, backed by the Boa® Guarantee.


  • PadLock™ heel construction cradles the heel and is proven to improve acceleration.


  • Non-slip, replaceable heel tread with internally recessed screws for security.


  • Form Fit last with a roomy toe box for the ultimate in connectivity and comfort.


  • Titanium alloy cleat nuts can rotate to position cleats 5mm rearward and fits all major 3-hole road pedals.


  • Approximate weight: 220g (1/2 pair, Size 42)
