Shimano SH-RC7 Road Shoe
Shimano has been a serious roll lately with their road bike shoes. Not only is the Shimano S-Phyre line some of the best clothing, shoes, and accessories on the market, but their work extends to the whole Shimano line. The all-new Shimano SH-RC701 Road Shoe is better than ever, making for one of the best shoes Shimano has ever made.
Compared to the outgoing Shimano RC7, the new model receives a second BOA L6 dial for quick adjustments. Shimano uses perforated synthetic leather for its lightweight comfort as well as greater durability than the outgoing Shimano RC7. The RC701 fastens with Powerzone wires that are taken up by micro-adjustable Boa L6 reels across the top and midfoot, with wide anchor points evenly distributing pressure, thus reducing hot spots. A stiff carbon sole offers excellent stiffness with just enough comfort for any long ride.
The Shimano RC701 road shoe is compatible with three bolt cleats like Shimano SPD-SL, Look Keo, and Speedplay. Fit is wider than average, and more accommodating than average. The RC701 shoe is available in sizes 38-50, with wide sizes 38-50 available as well.
