The World's Fastest Shoe
The LoreOne is the world’s most powerful road cycling shoe. More than a shoe, it’s a critical performance component that increases pedal drive, wattage and metabolic efficiency.
Each pair of LoreOnes is built to order and fully customized for the rider. The shoe features numerous patent-pending design and manufacturing advancements to facilitate natural biomechanical function and comfort.
A purchase triggers an invitation to digitally scan your feet using an iPhone 10,11, or 12 in conjunction with the Morphic digital print platform. Custom shoes are then designed, sustainably printed and assembled on demand in California before being shipped worldwide with a Lore travel bag.
EVA insole with soft antimicrobial microfibre top layer
A single shoe equivalent in width to a conventional size 43/US 10 should weigh approximately 315 grams.
The first continuous carbon reinforced, 3D printed monocoque exoskeleton ever made–– in any application.
Structurally interlocked dorsal and plantar shells capture and transfer natural biomechanical forces.
Continuous Carbon Fiber Robotically Printed Struts. Custom placed continuous carbon for high performance stiffness and structural strength.
2mm PU textured footbed for proprioceptive nervous system stimulation.
Quick entry and exit, and in-ride adjustment
Thermomoldable pads in the dorsal and calcaneus regions match your exact foot anatomy. Comfort, fit and power transfer unlike anything ever built prior.
Strategically placed within the CAF’s structural channels, cables facilitate perfect foot retention and connection to the exoskeleton.
Fully adjustable power strap provides additional connection and power transfer between the calcaneus and the CAF.
Cleat hole positioning is determined by your unique metatarsal anatomy. You choose the pattern preference to suit your pedals: Look/Shimano or native Speedplay.
Protect your shoes in style. A LoreOne travel bag is included with your shoe purchase.
370mm length x 245mm width x 140mm high
Shiny eco ripstop fabric

Free Worldwide Shipping.
Orders are built and will ship sequentially on a first order received basis. Current lead times are approximately 12 weeks after receiving your scans. Emissions from your shipment are offset by CarbonFund.
- Download the app on your iPhone 10, 11, or 12.*
- The process requires one helper and 30-40 minutes for a first time scanner. The use of an optional iPhone mirror (available at checkout) can reduce scan times for beginners.
- Upload your scans.
- Sit back and wait for your LoreOnes to be built and shipped.
If you don't have or can't borrow an iPhone 10, 11, or 12, email us to rent one.
We offer a full 30-day money back satisfaction guarantee that commences upon the day of delivery. Shoes also come with a one-year warranty against manufacturing defects.
Please see current build times at the top of this page. Orders will be manufactured and shipped in the order in which they are received.
We can ship to any of the 168 countries serviced by FedEx, UPS, or DHL.
For addresses outside of the US, all required taxes, VAT, import or excise duties are the sole responsibility of the recipient in their specific country.
For questions not answered here, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
For the first 30 days after receipt of the shoe, we offer a perfect-fit guarantee. We can work on adjustments, rebuild your shoe, or offer a refund. Contact email@example.com to discuss any fit issues upon receipt of your shoes.
The best way to ensure the earliest delivery is to get your order in early. Shoes will be built sequentially on a first-to-order basis.
3D printing with ‘chopped’ carbon fiber has been in vogue recently, and these little chunks of carbon can provide improved part performance versus unreinforced polymer parts. In contrast, the LoreOne is groundbreaking because it combines a complex organic form factor with truly unbroken, continuous carbon fiber reinforcement. The carbon fiber is composed of unbroken strands to achieve the shangri-la of high performance composites; stiff, lightweight, and totally custom. The impact is huge and has never been done before in any product–– the result is revolutionary part performance.
The LoreOne’s weight is comparable to other high-end road shoes, but the power transfer is superior due to the CAF. Weight of an individual shoe is ultimately dependent on the length, width, and volume of the user’s foot. A single shoe equivalent in width to a conventional size 43/US 10 should weigh approximately 315 grams.
The patent-pending CAF design features structurally interlocked dorsal and plantar shells that efficiently capture lateral and rotational forces produced by the foot through normal biomechanical movement. The structural relationship between these two parts provides the most direct energy transfer possible and is a first for any type of footwear, and is only enabled by true customization. Traditional shoes with soft uppers fail to effectively capture dorsal inputs; energy is bled off before it can be translated to the pedal. Superior power transfer has been obvious to testers and early pro users.
We don’t offer custom cleat positioning at this time, but a precise cleat position is generated based on your unique individual foot anatomy, ensuring better performance and accuracy compared to generic shoes.
The digital fit algorithm calculates a location that splits your first and fifth metatarsal bones longitudinally. This final cleat coordinate is mated with a lateral position that accounts for the geometry of your heel relative to your toes and the need for medial crank clearance.
The LoreOne’s carbon reinforcement is made without using molds in order to enable the elasticity of full custom production methods. Practically all consumer products in the world are made using molds that achieve superior surface finish quality, but are inherently constrained in terms of lack of customization. Carbon Customization is a science fiction dream realized, but it comes at the expense of surface finish quality.
The LoreOne is designed to be used without additional orthotics or footbeds. The sole of the LoreOne’s CAF is designed based on your unique anatomy and perfectly cups the perimeter of individual feet to provide unmatched lateral cupping and force transfer. Moreover the Dorsal Orthotic system provides ankle stabilization and corrective support that doesn’t exist in conventional footwear––effectively negating the need for under foot arch stabilization.
Yes. The LoreOne is suited for road use in triathlon training and competitions.
The LoreOne is a road and track specific shoe.
We expect Lore shoes to grace podiums in all disciplines over the coming years.
The scanning procedure will capture the shape of your foot to under a millimeter of accuracy. The design will accommodate and relieve prominent bony features, but if you have specific anatomical areas of concern, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org before scanning.
Not at the moment.
The best option is to find a friend with an iPhone 10, 11, or 12, or email us at email@example.com for rental options.
The LoreOne is only available through the LORE website, but expansion to bike fitters and cycling stores is planned for 2023.
Yes, we are excited to work with the finest bike fitters and retailers across the globe. To learn more about our retail program, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
