Clean looks, stellar feel.
The Shimano SH-RP5 Men's Cycling Shoes feature a light, carbon-reinforced nylon sole, upping the stiffness factor to an 8 out of 12 on the Shimano scale. This provides higher pedaling efficiency then the models it supersedes and positions it perfectly for all-day comfort and competition-ready stiffness. A versatile shoe for the cycling enthusiast, it suits a wide range of cycling adventures. The shoe is compatible with three-hole cleats and offers and extended range of adjustment so you can dial in your fit.
The SH-RP5's closure system consists of a lower hook-and-loop strap that passes through a D-ring for stability and adjustability while minimizing tension across the lower foot. A micro-adjustable Boa L6 dial with hidden wire routing crosses the mid and upper foot, and allows for quick and easy customized fit and even pressure distribution.
You'll appreciate the durable, wide heel pad as it provides excellent walking stability while heading into a country store at mile 60 to stock up on calories. Keeping your feet cool and comfortable during the summer months, the upper, insole, and outsole are optimized for passage of air through the shoes. The one-piece upper provides extended comfort and a clean design, delivering pure, functional performance.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
I think this was going to be a really great shoe— I’ve been having some problems with the women’s shoes, so this would have been my second men’s Shimano purchase. I am a 10.5 women’s shoe, so a 43 is perfect in my other pair. I just received these in the mail and tried them on—they are VERY small. The box says the US size 8.9/EUR 43. Bummed I’ll have to send back— was looking forward to wearing these!
Boa for the masses
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 44
This shoe is nice and stiff compared to Shimano's previous offerings in its price range. I like the minimal looks and light weight. The single boa is workable enough with my high arches, even though the double boa would be a little better. Excellent ventilation.
HI, do you have this product in a wide-fit version?
