Shimano’s RP5W Women's Road Shoe offers a minimalist aesthetic and high-performance road endurance technology, ideal for racing and training. The seamless, one-piece synthetic leather upper delivers long-lasting comfort while the Boa® L6 dial closure with hidden wire routing yields impressive adjustability, allowing for the perfect fit. The sole features carbon fiber reinforced nylon for efficient power transfer. The improved shoe last contributes to power transfer as well with its optimized toe-spring section. Shimano asserts a poorly placed toe-spring section causes tension around the plantar, calf, and hamstrings when it's too high, and bowlegged, inefficient pedaling form when it's too low. The toe-spring section of the RP5’s shoe last is carefully integrated for smoother, more efficient pedaling and energy conservation. Ventilation in the upper, insole, and outsole are skillfully linked to promote optimum airflow through the shoe.
