Until I bought these I rode with a more casual type of bicycle shoes. These new shoes have definitely made my pedal power transfer more directly from my legs to the wheels. One thing different about this type of shoe is that they do not loosen up after a few rides, so be sure that the size you order is exactly what fits you when you first put them on.
I have only had three rides on this shoe so far, but all good thus far.
Easy to put on
Strong BOA design
Seems like durable material on the outer
A bit tight in the tow box but probably need to get a few more rides in to stretch them
The medial sidewall seems a bit soft when out of the saddle
I have worn Shimano cycling shoes for years. The RC502 is lightweight and stiff. In the past Shimano offered half sizes (i.e. 45.5) but it seems as if they are only making full sizes now. Great price at BTD.
