Shimano

Shimano Logo
In 1961, a three-speed bicycle hub displayed at the New York Toy Show became the catalyst for what would eventually become Shimano American Corporation. The popularity of 20-inch wheeled bikes with hi-rise handle bars fueled a demand for multi-speed hubs and Shimano® began producing an affordable and reliable version that caught the attention of the cycling world. By 1965, Yoshizo Shimano, the youngest son of the company founder in Japan, opened an office in New York to get product feedback and to provide technical and warranty assistance to retailers selling bikes equipped with Shimano® parts.

Though Shimano America has grown from its modest office staffed by only three people to a full distribution center with sales and marketing offices, the goals are the same: to ensure that Shimano® always has a listening ear to provide feedback on relevant trends and needs and make it a reality for their customers.

Shimano® invented SPD recessed cleat and pedal technology, which revolutionized the industry. The unique systems-engineered shoe/pedal combinations - only from Shimano® - enhanced power-transfer even more. A few years later the efficiencies were applied to the road systems with the development of SPD-SL technology. Less wasted movement, even distribution of power across the pedal and increased comfort. Simply more power from you to the bike.

Shimano's participation extends much further than its products. Through advocacy programs, ISO 14001 certification and even commuter/car pool programs for their employees, Shimano® is committed to minimizing their impact on the environment.

These fit perfect! I wear a women 7 and purchased a size 7.2. They are comfortable and make my ride smooth. I love that I can wear these to cycle at the gym and they work for a Peloton as well.

Fit was true to size. Blue color is nice. The BOA only goes tighter, not looser. Very similar in fit to my older Shimano cycling shoes.

I have an older pair of shimano cycling shoes in size 40 but this shoe was significantly shorter as well as shorter than the RC3. The navy blue is a nice color.

I really wanted to love these! I could tell they would be great cycling shoes if I could get the right fit. I'm an 8. My heel was slipping in the 8.5, and the 7.8 almost fit, but was really a little too snug. I love how easy these are to get on, and the ease of the velcro strap. If you think you can get these to fit your feet, they'll be perfect. I ended up with the IC5 in size 8.5 -- I was able to get them to be tighter around my foot because it's a different tightening system.

I'm new to indoor cycling, and tried on a bunch of different shoes trying to find ones that fit well, and these were the winners. It was between these and the Shimano IC100s in the end, and these won out because the BOA lacing system let me make them fit better on my feet. The sizing on these is a little weird. I'm a size 8. I tried the 8.5 and 7.8 in the IC100 -- my heel was slipping in the 8.5, and the 7.8 was a little snug. I ended up with the 8.5 in the IC5. The SPD cleats are very easy to install (with the help of some YouTube videos) and easy to adjust after riding with them to get them perfect. There is a lot of confusing info (to a newbie like me, at least) about how to install cleats. I guess on some shoes you have to take out the insole and put a plate inside the shoe. I got the Shimano SM-SH51 cleats, and I just had to screw them into the bottom of the shoes. Didn't have to do anything on the inside. Was easy. In short: these shoes are comfortable, easy to get on, easy to adjust, and easy to attach cleats to.

I wish I knew I should have used Wide sizes years ago. These are comfortable. I need time to determine how these perform, so will comeback to update the review in 6 months. I am not sure I love the BOA closure, but want more time with that. I feel like the BOA tends to accordian the tongue and mash. it.

I could not even fit my foot into the shoe and I purchased a "wide" shoe 2 sizes bigger than my foot to accommodate my width.

Good shoes for SPD cleats. I have had other Shimano shoes so I knew to order a size 46, even though I normally would wear a 45 in other shoes. The cable closure system works well but you need a good grip to pull the knobs up to loosen the cable. I think Velcro straps feel more secure but this system is adequate for cycling shoes.

I unfortunately really dislike these shoes. I have a Schwinn spin bike and do Peloton classes. No longer than 30 min. on the bike at a time. Had these shoes about 5 months. These shoes loosen as I ride. I always have to reach down and retighten them at some point. I wish I would have chosen a traditional velcro design instead. Considering replacing them.

I bought these after returning the Nike indoor cycling shoes which had an awful fit. These were just perfect, very smooth on the foot and very flexible. They feel great on the bike!

I was looking for a wide cycling shoe after suffering a Tailor's Bunion from tight-fitting shoes I wore for many years. I ordered 4 different pairs of shoes and these won out from the lot! The previous shoes were size 13 and too tight across the width of the foot (causing the bunion issue). I ordered these in a 12.5 E width, and they fit perfectly. The BOA system is great for locking down my foot for powerful upstrokes, is easy to adjust mid-ride, and makes it easy to get them off after a session. Super happy with the result, and hopefully the bunion issue will be a distant memory!

My first pair of Shimano's and my first time using the BOA system. I'm impressed with both. For its price, the shoes are well-made and look cool.

I can't say about width or arch as I could not even begin to get my 10.5 size foot into the shoe. Double checked its not a womens size. I have 2 shimano pairs already size 45 or 10.5 with BOA lace. Don't know what happened but if you have a 10.5 foot?

Fit seems fine, will need to cycle with them for a while to decide how much I like them. Edge of tongue is a bit stiff and digs into the top of foot if sock is not covering it.

These shoes are very sleek..love the look. However, they don't work for me. I have a low volume narrow foot and high arches so my heel comes out of the shoe due to the low cut. I will order another shoe that will be firmer rated, cut higher, with padded collar and tongue. I would say these shoes are on the narrow side and they also have no padding under the ball of the foot. If you have a normal width foot these would work for you... If your foot is wide size up.

Ordered this man's 41; I was a 41 in the older/different model TR9 and this works great. I used to need a footbed in my old shoe but not in this. I think the old shoe was women's 9. I use this shoe for triathlons (amateur level) and really like it so far.

So I have WIDE feet and purchased size 8.5 - normally 8. This is my 2nd pair because I don't want to be without. Have a Peloton and switched out pedals to accommodate SPD cleats since that is what this shoe uses. Peloton shoes are too uncomfortable for me.

This is sized as a wide shoe, but it is not very wide. Non-wide size Bontrager shoes have wider toe box. Shoes seem fine otherwise.

These were only my second pair of clipless road shoes. My first pair were Look brand and about 10 years old with velcro fasteners. I bought new cleats and decided it was about time for shoes too. I was not sure if I'd like the Boa tighteners. I went on a 20 mile ride today. It felt really comfortable, but at mile 10, I tightened it up a little. The top of my foot started hurting after 2 miles, so, I stopped again and loosened it. It felt great the rest of the ride. So far I love the look and feel of them while riding. I'm happy with the purchase.
