Why We Like The RC3 Cycling Shoe
If hook-and-loop straps don’t really catch your eye when it comes to cycling aesthetic, the Shimano RC3 Cycling Shoe offers a taste of high-performance race engineering at a budget-friendly cost. The RC3 Cycling Shoe sits at Shimano’s mid-level cycling range as an upgrade to the entry-level RC1. Now equipped with a Boa L6 dial, which offers incremental adjustments to fine-tune the fitting, the RC3 pedals into a race-ready territory. Underneath, you’ll find reliable power transfer to the pedals with the fiberglass reinforced nylon sole, and the Rubber XC racing pattern gives you extra grip for clicking into pedals and walking around.
For comfort mile after mile, Shimano integrates the midsole to the upper for a seamless fit and unified form that stabilizes your foot during high power efforts. The RC3 is compatible with 3-bolt cleats for the traditional road pedal platform.

Solid entry-to-mid level cycling shoe
- I've used it several times
- Size Bought:
- 5' 6"
Comfortable shoe for long rides, decently stiff sole, easy to get in and out of. I love the no-tongue design, and the boa closure is nice. Even though the shoes fit properly, It seems like I can't actually get them tight enough, but that seems to just be the nature of the flexible material, and not an issue with the boa. Solid shoe overall, very comfortable, decent performance but just not stiff enough to feel like an aggressive shoe. If you're looking for a starting point with cycling shoes outside of spin class, this is a good option with a low price point.
