Mike Tracywrote a review of Shimano SH-RP9 Cycling Shoe - Men's on October 1, 2016
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Purchased to replace Pearl Izumi Pro Leader II that I could never get dialed in. As the title sez these shoes have plenty of space in the front which I need because my left foot big toe is crooked from I guess life..who knows.
Quality is first rate, styling is a bit lacking for my tastes but it's a cycling shoe.
I've put 600 plus miles on them and after initial break in they feel fantastic. My foot stays in place with no movement during rides which eliminates hot spots on the bottom of my feet.
I did not heat shrink these due to no place to get it done locally.
It gets hot (90+ deg, humidity 90+) and the air flow is excellent.
I ride these with Speedplay pedals.
I recommend theses shoes.
