Why We Like The Shimano RX801 Mountain Bike Shoe
The Shimano RX801 pulls the best features from Shimano’s high-end road and mountain line into a featherweight gravel racing shoe made to go fast. Featuring the stiffest carbon composite sole in Shimano’s gravel lineup, every pedal stroke is enhanced into high power output that makes us want to push the pace just a little bit harder. BOA dials give us micro-adjustments to dial in our fit with precision, while the abrasion-resistant TPU lugs offer extra grip for hike-a-bike situations.

Stiff, Comfortable, Powerful
- I've put it through the wringer
Riding now for 30+ years, these are some of the most comfortable mtb shoes with stiff soles I’ve ever owned. They are narrow so if you have a wide foot I wouldn’t recommend. On the positive side the arch support system is great. It comes with two inserts, medium and large, can be used without for low arch and you could easily have custom sizes made. Having ridden over 1500 miles in 30+ mile increments, these stand up for superior comfort and performance. A ridged sole in a cushy glove for your feet.
