Shimano does the cheap SPD shoe thing really well!

I am impressed with these even at their low price point. I do have one gripe - my ankle bone is getting pinched on both sides. I might have to cut out some of the rigid material from the edge.

Great commuting shoes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I've been using these shoes (well, the previous model of the same type) for several years for commuting (25 miles each way). They are comfortable, reasonably stiff yet still walkable, and the recessed cleat makes it great for walking after you get off the bike. In my office I have to climb stairs once I get off the bike. These shoes work great for that purpose and are much more secure than a shoe with an exposed cleat. Easy to clip in and out of SPD pedals (I use the Shimano PD-A520).

I am considering this shoes to replace my current SPD RO87. How deep are the recessed cleat channels? Are they deep enough for the cleats not to hit the ground or at least level the shoes? How are they when locking/unlocking to the pedals?

They definitely click a bit on even concrete surfaces in my preferred mounting position, just a little below center. To be honest, most shoes click, even DZRs and Five Ten commuter shoes. You need a MTB shoe with thick lugs to avoid clicking.

Great for use with Mountain Pedals

These are great shoes if you don't want to buy a pair of road pedals. I use these with a pair of Shimano mountain pedals on my road bike and they work perfectly. It's nice to not have the extra tread on the sole like a mountain show and the recessed cleat makes it much easier to walk around. The fiberglass sole is also fairly stiff, but does have more flex than a carbon sole.

Did you notice any hot spots with the SPD clips on the road? Do you have larger feet or average sided feet because I have heard that sometimes people with larger feet should go with road pedals because the pedals have more surface in contact with the foot. Is this usually true?

Responded on

I haven't noticed any hot spots from riding on the road. My road bike sees far less time than my mountain bike though. I have an average size foot, size 43. I can see what you're saying about a rider with a larger foot, but I feel like these are stiff enough to eliminate that.

Are there other shoes similar to this which...

Are there other shoes similar to this which have a recessed cleat but are more like a road shoe (so not the sneaker looking commuter shoe or the MTB dirt gripping soles)?

Responded on

The Northwave Touring shoe is very similar but with all hook and loop, no buckle. They are less expensive, but your options are limited when finding a decent road/touring shoe
