Item # SHI001V

Because no one eats peanut butter or jelly sandwiches.

Choosing between a super-stiff race shoe and a squishy-slipper recreational shoe means giving up either performance or comfort, which isn't always a sacrifice you want to make. Shimano designed the SH-WR42 Women's Cycling Shoes to take the "or" out of that equation, because shoes that feel and pedal great shouldn't be an anomaly.

If a stiff carbon sole isn't something you're interested in, the Dynalast sole of the WR42 probably is. It's much more forgiving than carbon, but still lets you put down plenty of power. Rubber heel lugs provide extra cushioning, and the two- and three-hole cleat compatibility means the WR42 will work with both road and mountain pedals.

Space-age upper materials aren't what this shoe called for, but the tough synthetic leather of the WR42 won't stretch or tear, and is accented with mesh panels for increased breathability and cooling. There are two hook-and-loop straps for a secure fit, and Shimano also tossed in a ratcheting system that cinches the upper around your foot for a fit that's equal parts comfortable, snug, and powerful.

  • Synthetic leather upper with mesh panels
  • Shimano Dynalast sole
  • Rubber heel lugs
  • Ratchet closure and hook-and-loop straps
  • Two- and three-hole cleat compatibility

Great shoe with SPD clip option

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these shoes for my wife who just got her first road bike recently. She's a bit nervous about clipping into pedals, so she hasn't used these shoes yet, but she's tried them on and they fit really well. My wife plans on using the shoes first on the spin bikes at the gym to get used to clipping in and out, so SPD option was an essential feature of the shoes I chose for her. These fit the bill very well. Later when she grows accustomed to clipping in, we can switch her pedals out for SPD-SL, and these shoes will be compatible with those as well. Win win.

Are there plans to offer the white versions...

Are there plans to offer the white versions in 35?

Hey peter K.,

Thanks for your question.

I am sorry but at this time there are no orders planned to replenish the inventory of the white color in a size 35.0.
