William V.wrote a review of Shimano RX8 Mountain Bike Shoe - Men's on December 5, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I really wonder if someone at SHIMANO screwed up with this shoe. It is a great deal and a great value. It is fantastic if you are looking for a seriously light, stiff shoe to put a lot of road miles on your MB pedal equipped gravel bike (I was!). I compared it to the $400 S-Phyre road shoe in a store. I honestly could not tell which shoe was lighter and they both felt equally as stiff. You do lose a boa lace and get a Velcro tab instead by stepping down but you also save $150. I would have paid $400 for a great shoe, so I feel like I got a bargain. I like a wide toe box and this shoe has one. I wear a 10.5 in Nike shoes and this shoe fits similarly. The only downside, which wasn’t an issue for me, is that it is slightly less comfortable to walk in than most MB shoes. This is a great race/training shoe. Have a good ride!
