Comfortable Shoes for Going Faster and Longer.
The Shimano SH-RP7 cycling shoe is the premier women's specific road performance shoe from the Japanese brand. These shoes deliver superior all-day comfort and efficient performance on fast paced group rides and races. Starting with the upper, the supple, perforated high-density synthetic leather offers a superior fit and is lighter, stronger, and more durable than natural leathers. An external curved heel cup secures the rear of the foot and prevents heel lift when pulling up on the pedals on double-digit grades and county-line sprints. The shoe is built on a women’s specific last and it offers a more natural, and comfortable fit on the female foot. A micro-adjustable Boa dial with hidden wire routing offers quick and easy adjustments so you can tighten the shoes and prepare for the final kick. Combined with the hook-and-loop lower strap, pressure is evenly distributed without any pinch points or hot spots. A lightweight carbon composite outsole for optimized for stiffness and scores a 9 out of 12 of Shimano's stiffness scale. You can bolt any 3-hole road cleat to the sole and it offers increased fore and aft range so you can dial in your fit effectively.
The shoe is offered in whole sizes from 36 through 44 and in the color Gray.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: 43
- Height: 5'6"
- Weight: 148lbs
I recently used these for Haute Route Asheville. I was worried because my old shoes were causing so much pain in the balls of my feet. With these, I was able to ride 186 miles and climb almost 20000 ft with no pain. The only thing is they seem a little big, I wear a 10.5 and purchased size 43, I may have been able to fit into a 42.
If the shoe fits...
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: I'm a US size 5.5-6.0 and these in a 37 are just right in a very thin sock.
These shoes are narrow in the heel, pretty wide in the forefoot, and decent in instep height. The finishing is so good that I forgot socks and rode 90 minutes barefoot without any problem. That's a first!
