Our review

Super stiff race shoe performance without shouting about it
Skip to view product specifications

These are the latest high performance shoe offering from Shimano, and they definitely have an air of subtlety about them. With an all-black construction, this is a great shoe for those of us who want to have the performance of a race shoe, without looking as though we have a pair of solar-powered disco slippers on our feet.


The sole is super stiff, with carbon fibre reinforcement, and it also sports a pair of replaceable studs in the front. 

The fit of a shoe is an individual thing, but these fit just as well as the rest of Shimano’s biking clogs – so if you’ve tried any before, you’ll know what to expect.

Your foot is held in place easily and efficiently by two offset velcro straps and a plastic ratchet tensioner. 


Although the shoes’ synthetic upper is perforated for breathability, the polyurethane coating has a damn good go at keeping the wet out, and the carbon fibre effect on the top looks rad as well.
