SH-RP1 Cycling Shoe
The Shimano SH-RP1 Cycling Shoes are great entry level road and spin class kicks. The dual hook and loop straps make it easy to dial in a custom fit and adjust on the fly. The lightweight glass fiber reinforced nylon sole rates as a 6 out of 12 on the Shimano stiffness scale so it transfers your power to the pedals efficiently, yet allows a little more give than the pool table stiff race options, keeping your feet comfortable. The care-free synthetic leather upper is lighter, stronger, and more durable than natural leathers. The shoes are compatible with both 2-bolt SPD and 3-hole road cleat systems and feature a wider cleat adjustment range so you can dial in your fit. There is a reflective print on the heel cup to increase your visibility at night. These shoes are available in whole sizes from 37-48 and in the color black.

Worn once, but he loves them!
Got them for my boyfriend as a birthday present. He just finished his first ride in them, and said they’re, “amazing.” They replaced an older pair of shimanos that were definitely past their prime. They’re sleek, much lighter weight, and very breathable. I did have to return the first pair I ordered as they run smaller than his last pair. Backcountry was super helpful with the return, and the replacement pair arrived on his birthday. I originally ordered a size 45, but replaced with size 46– he’s normally 10.5-11 in street shoes.

Super tight fit
I double checked to make sure that it wasn't the wrong size. It wasn't. Runs at least a full size smaller than marked size. Tight all around but extremely short compared with its stated size.

Do these shoes work for women as well?
