Description

Quite Possibly The Perfect Road Shoe?

Falling into Shimano's Road Performance category, the SH-RC7 is meant for speed with a claimed 245-gram weight that sits just two grams higher than the category topping SH-RC9 for a size 42. With a stiff carbon sole and comfortable upper, these shoes strike a balance between race-day aggression and training utility at a cost that pales in comparison to many similarly spec'd options.

Shimano fashions the SH-RC7s from perforated synthetic leather, chosen for both its lightweight comfort as well as its ability to vent cooling air throughout the shoe. Each shoe fastens with a micro-adjustable Boa IP1 reel across the top, with wide anchor points evenly distributing pressure. A hook-and-loop strap spans the forefoot for additional adjustability and customization of fit.

Underfoot, a stiff carbon fiber composite sole facilitates efficient power transfer with a high stiffness rating of 10/12 on Shimano's scale, which means you don't have to worry about wasted watts or fatiguing sole flex.

Features:

  • Integrated seamless midsole and upper construction enhance fit, stability and lightweight performance
  • Surround wrapping upper structure reduces overlap and provides a glove-like fit
  • Ultra-rigid hollow carbon midsole efficiently vents air and drains water
  • Supple high-density synthetic leather with perforation and lightweight mesh/TPU combination bring superior fit and comfort
  • Dual independent BOA® L6 dials allow quick, micro tension adjustments
  • Adjustable powerzone lace guide securely holds forefoot
  • SHIMANO DYNALAST promotes smoother pedaling and more efficient power transfer
  • Material: synthetic leather
  • BOA IP1 closure
  • Sole: carbon fiber composite
  • Compatible with 3-bolt road cleats
  • Intended use: road cycling
  • Available in black or white color option
  • Weight: 245g

Replaced old ones

I bought these to replace the older version and got them at a really good sale price. The black and white pattern looked a little weird at first, but after wearing them for a while, I�m use to it. Overall an excellent shoe for the money.

These road bike shoes rival those I've worn before at twice the price. With two Boa cinch-downs, vented soles, and white to black fading, it's the a true beauty.

First pair of Shimanos after being a Sidi user for over 10 years

I've been a Sidi user from the time I started cycling over 10 years ago. They are built well, look and feel great. That said, they feel a bit out dated in design and certainly seem to weight a lot more than it's contemporaries - so, it was time to switch it up. I was eyeing the Sphyre series shoe - but decided to go one step down, simply because I couldn't justify the price. The 702's have been perfect. They are comfortable, very adjustable and feel great on my feet, even on long rides - indoor and out. I highly recommend them if you want a modern shoe at a great value.

Love these shoes! Red is wicked!

I absolutely dig the matte metallic red! These are so light and way more comfortable than my previous road shoes (from another manufacturer). My only niggle is that I wish the finish was more durable. My second ride outside and a serious mar on my toe happened � from what i dont know, it was a 4hr ride.

Light shoe with glove like fit

Decided to replace my old Sidi's with this Shimano option. It is a lighter shoe, with a glove like fit for my feet. I also own Shimano XC5 mountain bike shoes which are similarly light weight with good fit.

Mixed comfort for me...your experience may vary

The upper boa strap really digs into the top of my foot--I have to be very careful about how much I tighten...too loose and I shift around in the shoe and it becomes unstable; too tight and it gets extremely uncomfortable. Unfortunately the line between too tight and too lose is microscopic--like 1 click on the boa dial, so I'm constantly adjusting while on the bike to find the ideal setting. After over 1,000 miles on the shoes, it's still a source of constant fiddling.

I do like that the toe box is quite generous. The soles also seem to be the perfect level of stiffness. Just the tiny-est bit of give for some level of comfort, but certainly plenty stiff for out of the saddle sprints.

The shoes also look aces--very sharp.

New Shoe Day

Absolutely love the new shoes. Fit perfectly based on chart. Love the look�toe is silver and then fades back to black. They look fast and the make me feel fast :). No break in period like other road shoes I�ve bought. Very comfortable and snug in the right places. BTD service and selection is second to none. I�ve been a customer for many years and recommend to all my cycling buddies.

Excellent road bike shoe

I've been a longtime fan and user of Sidi bike shoes and their road shoes have often been top notch. Recent iterations, while still good, haven't been as great in their stiffness and power transfer, nor quite as comfortable on long rides.

Decided to try these and very happy I did. Fit is excellent and they adjust well to compensate for feet expansion on long rides. They're comfortable on those long rides, with an excellent level of stiffness for strong power transfer, yet still walkable when off-bike. They breathe decently despite not having large vents on top, but are warm on the hottest days.

So far they've held up great in the nearly 1,500 miles I've put on them in the few months I've had them, which hopefully bodes well for long-term durability.

An extremely comfortable but stiff and efficient shoe!

Have ridden Sidi, Shimano, and Giro high end shoes over the years of competitive riding. Now as a senior citizen logging 1500 miles/year, I was looking for a moderately stiff but comfortable shoe with a slightly roomier forefoot than racing shoes. The RC702 nails it for me. Wraparound design and BOA lacing spread the pressure uniformly and anchor my feet securely. Nice tight heel cup without excessive Achilles pressure I wear size 9.5 or 10 in athletic and street shoes and the size 43.5 is spot on. Workmanship and materials seem first rate. The cooling channel in the sole and well vented forefoot make then noticeably cooler than my Giros

These shoes are worth a look for anything short of racing.

Great shoe for the price.

I ride 4-5 days a week and have found these shoes to be perfect for my needs (have them in white too). Firm sole and good overall fit. During our club rides, when a sprint comes up, I don't feel any loss of power with these shoes. Materials seem to dry quick and don't retain any musty odor. Good buy!

Great Value - Comfortable Shoe

These shoes are very comfortable. I normally don't buy road shoes online, because I feel that I have to try them on first. But I was in a hurry, these shoes were priced right, and I took a chance on the fit. I have a fairly wide foot, and I always worry about road shoes being too tight. These are a perfect fit for me, they look great, and I like the double BOA tightening system.

Solid Boot

The boot provides a secure foot for power. The two Boa's is a significant upgrade from my previous boot with only one Boa and a Velcro strap across the toe box. This boot provides ample toe box area. My only knock was a bit of a stitch rub on the right foot during a Century. The second Century - no issue
