Why We Like The RC1 Limited Edition Cycling Shoe

Shimano’s entry-level RC1 Limited Edition Cycling Shoe hits the sweet spot between spin-class readiness and day-to-day road cycling. With an eye on simplicity and comfort, the three offset hook-and-loop straps close down to provide a secure and performance-focused fit while keeping a refined and aerodynamic profile.

The moderate stiffness of the fiberglass-reinforced nylon sole provides a pleasant walking experience compared to highly stiff carbon-soled shoes on the market. The perforated synthetic upper breathes and cleans easily after early spring rides on semi-damp roadways. The RC1 is equipped to pair with 3-bolt cleat systems making it ideal for road-specific cycling or the at-home trainer.

Snazzy shoes

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Overall pretty comfortable, although the toe box is a bit more narrow than the RP1, hoping they break in.

Run a little small.

I've used it several times

I have always worn size 47 cycling shoe, never had a problem, but these run a little small in length and width. The sole is a little flexible. but other than that ok cheap shoe.

Decent Entry Level Shoe

I returned this product before using it

This is a good quality entry level shoe, but I needed more arch support and the removable footbed is very basic and offers little support, with a low arch and no molded heel cup. Fit is spot-on, I'm a 9-1/2, and the 44 fit well. Shimano shoes also offer a bit more width in the toe box than most other brands. Shimano equates their 44 to a 9.7 US size, which sounds about right. I returned it because of the thin footbed, but if you don't need a lot of arch or heel cup support you'll find these shoes to be an excellent value. Shimano does sell a better footbed for around $30, but for that price you can simply upgrade to the RC3, which comes standard with that footbed.

Comfortable and Affordable Cycling Shoe

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This shoe is perfect for everything from casual to long-distance riding, proving that you don?t have to break the bank to get a high-quality riding shoe. Not as stiff as a racing shoe, it?s still stiff enough to transfer most of your power to the pedals. I purchased the special edition yellow for an extra measure of increased visibility.

The ad says $67.50?

I returned this product before using it

But when you're checking out it bumps the price to $90? What is the deal here?
