The sizing might run a little large.

Love these sandals - but there's a caution...

These are great - like Tevas with cleats - with a couple caveats

1- The sizing suggestions aren't really clear. Compared to my regular Tevas, the sandals are narrow (need to be so they don't catch on cranks or chain stays) but long. I ordered two sizes and the better one looked very long on my foot compared to my regular Tevas. BUT - the fit feels good, both pedaling and walking. If you're between sizes, go for the larger one.

2 - Be careful twisting out. Because they're like Tevas (which is what I wanted), your foot has much more play within the sandal than it does in a regular biking shoe it takes a much bigger twist to uncleat. I had one of those lying-on-the-ground-with-feet-still-clipped-in moments. As usual, in the most public spot possible. Just tighten the straps and be aware.

Bottom line - I love them for the short dashes around town. Haven't tried them for a longer ride and probably never will.

You will really like them.

The Shimano cycling sandals are great. I use them on paved and dirt trails. They work so well that

I'm using them off the bike walking around doing errands. I'm going to get another pair and just use them

as regular sandals without putting the spd cleats on.

On the bike and pedaling ...these work and feel just like my other Shimano and Specialized cycling shoes. The difference you'll notice is how cool your feet will feel when riding on warm and hot days.

The sandals fit really nice and are adjustable quickly for use with socks or bare feet.

Very comfortable, tight-fitting sandal to go fast

I like sandals in the summer, but these are the best I've had. I can go faster with these than regular cycling shoes do to the way they snugly fit my foot without discomfort. For instance, when I use my hamstrings and and pull through, the strap across the heal provides instant power without the shoe sliding back and forth.

great biking sandals

I use them for road biking during hot weather. My old shimano sandals (maybe 12-15 yrs old) had a little stiffer sole which made them less comfortable for waking but a little more efficeint for biking.

Shimano Sandals

I love these sandals for summer riding. I had a pair 20 years ago and was happy to see they were available again. I had read the strap was to short, but I did not find that was a problem for me. My right foot will go numb at times on long rides with my regular biking shoes, but with these sandals I do not have that problem.

Comfortable Snug fit, Walkable

Great Sandal. Fits good, comfortable for riding and walking during stops. Bought as a backup as my first pair is still in good shape after several years with 3-4 rides per week 8-20 miles per ride.

Not as good as previous SH SD60..

Had the SD60 for years and wore them 5 days a week for spin class...great comfort.

Unfortunately the new SH SD5 lacks enough stiffness in the foot bed...Not bad if you sit the entire time, but any time spent spent standing on the pedals in a climb will result in sore arches...consider these a waste of money for the sandal and the money it cost to get the clips installed for my purpose.

Unless it's cold out, Shimano sandals are the best for bike riding

I've used Shimano sandals for years. Long rides or short, they're great. They breathe in the hot weather, are easy to walk on, last a long time.

Sizing is for narrow feet. Need larger size and cut off length.

I have ridden in this sandal for years. Keeping a pair going with shoe goo. This new pair does not fit as well. Tried several sizes. Finally got larger somewhat larger size for width and found so long they were hitting spokes. Cut them off with band saw and now ok.

No More Smelly Feet!!!

I cycle in a hot and sticky climate and so these shoes are perfect. In the past I used closed-in shoes and the shoe smell would be so bad that I would need to wash my feet after completing a ride because the shoe stench would transfer to my skin. Wash these off and you are ready to go again, plus they are not cumbersome to walk around in when off your cycle at your destination. Check them out but don't forget to order the cleats since they are not included. Best wishes to you and safe riding!!!

Disapppointed in the SH SD5 Sandal

I was going to buy a pair of these SH SD5 cycling sandals to replace my SH SD60 cycling sandals that have been my go-to for the past 15 years. As a final gut check, it went to a store and tried them out. Sadly disappointed in what the SH SD5 has become. The SH SD5 look great, but are completely lacking the stiff metal shank that made the SH SD60 so ideal for clicked-in riding. Thumbs down to Shimano for not continuing with the SH SD60 benchmark. Now I have to figure out what to do, because a cleated bike sandal is the best way to ride in the summer. Maybe look into some Keens?

New, refined update to the classic cycling sandal

This is the latest version of Shimano's cycling sandal. Earlier models included the original SH-SD60 (two straps), SH-SD65 (three straps), and SH-SD66 (two straps). The newest model SH-SD5 is a complete redesign, lighter, less stiff, and easier to walk in. I've owned both the SH-SD65 and SH-SD5, and prefer the latter.

Good product, comfortable, well made

Returned original order for half size smaller, toe room not an issue for sandals. Wore thin socks first few rides until sandal straps softened a bit. Lost one screw on left cleat first time, then reattached both cleats using some threadlock on screws. Nicely cool on feet during warm days. Would buy again.

A worthwhile purchase. They fit my feet quite well and they function just like a regular bicycle shoe, but less confining. They are also comfortable for walking around once you get off the bike.

Continues my love of all things Shimano.

Great sandals. Really changes summer riding on my recumbent HR. I thought I'd only use them for more casual rides, but they're up to performance rides as well. They fit a little bigger than my other closed Shimanos, so if you're somewhere in the middle of the sizing ranges, go for the smaller.

Comfortable, functional alternative to shoes in summer

For recreational cycling in summer, this footwear works well enough on the bike and is cooler than shoes, while being unobtrusive when stopping for food or sightseeing. I would wish only that the footbed were covered with leather, which still cannot be bested for moisture transfer.

Very good product

I like riding in sandals, especially on the muti-day rides that I do. I don't have to pack socks, and if it rains, these dry out with no waiting period. As for comfort, I find that these are as good or better than a regular bike shoe. The build quality is very good, and I anticipate that they will last for many years.
