Make use of Scrapy's standard HttpProxyMiddleware by specifying proxy meta value and the autherization header in a Scrapy Request, for example:

import scrapy
from w3lib.http import basic_auth_header

yield scrapy.Request(
    url=url, callback=self.parse,
    meta={'proxy': 'https://<PROXY_IP_OR_URL>:<PROXY_PORT>'},
        'Proxy-Authorization': basic_auth_header(

In order to route all spider's requests through the proxy automatically, isolate its details in a middleware by adding this example class in the project's file:

from w3lib.http import basic_auth_header

class CustomProxyMiddleware(object):
    def process_request(self, request, spider):
        request.meta['proxy'] = "https://<PROXY_IP_OR_URL>:<PROXY_PORT>"
        request.headers['Proxy-Authorization'] = basic_auth_header(

Then reference it in the downloader middlewares section of the project's, putting it before the standard HttpProxyMiddleware:

    '<PROJECT_NAME>.middlewares.CustomProxyMiddleware': 350,
    'scrapy.downloadermiddlewares.httpproxy.HttpProxyMiddleware': 400,

There's also a ready random proxy middleware for Scrapy here.
