SH-RC7 Cycling Shoe

If your current road shoes have made it through 3 presidential terms, you deserve to treat yourself to some new carbon soled wonders with dial closures and that's just what you'll get with the SH-RC7 Cycling Shoe from Shimano. As a slight running upgrade to the outgoing RC7, this model now receives a second BOA L6 dial for quick, micro tension adjustments of the Powerzone wire guide. These shoes are plenty light, stiff, and comfortable for racing and are a little friendlier on the pocketbook than its range-topping big brother, the SH-RC9, and at a size 42, it’s a whopping 2 grams heavier per shoe. Its stiff Dynalast carbon sole and high-density synthetic leather upper with perforated venting for superior fit allow these shoes to strike a balance between race-day performance and training comfort utility all at a price that saves money for race day entry fees.

Shimano fashions the SH-RC7's uppers from perforated synthetic leather that’s used for its lightweight comfort as well as long-lasting durability. The shoe fastens with Powerzone wires that are taken up by micro-adjustable Boa L6 reels across the top and midfoot, with wide anchor points evenly distributing pressure, thus reducing hot spots. Underfoot, a stiff carbon fiber composite sole facilitates efficient power transfer with a high stiffness rating of a 10 out of 12 on Shimano's scale, meaning you won't be giving up any wasted watts to sole flex.

  • A race-ready road shoe big on comfort and value
  • Carbon fiber composite sole is light and efficient
  • Highly breathable synthetic upper vents and fits well
  • Dual Boa LP6 closures have micro-adjustability for a dialed fit
  • Compatible with three-bolt road cleats

    Shimano RC7 good q. but narrow in toe

    I returned this product before using it
    Runs small
    Size Bought
    5` 9"

    Just got these a day or so ago; Seems like a great quality shoe for the price -- nice stiff sole, pretty light, and well constructed. Unfortunately pretty narrow profile -- similar to Sidi-- so normal 42.5 (~8.5 US) was a little small. Maybe I'll give another go with 43cm (?). Otherwise I would give it a "5".

    I've used it several times
    True to size

    I've owned several pairs of Shimano shoes, both road and mountain and I've never been disappointed with any of them. The fit and build quality are always above par. So the choice of getting the RC-7's was easy. And after several rides with them, I'm still a fan of Shimano's shoes. They are nice and light, stiff enough for my aging feet, and they seem to ventilate quite well. They fit my feet great and the boa system allows me to dial in the ideal fit. I highly recommend these shoes!

    I've put it through the wringer

    I had last years version which I liked. This years version is perfect. I love the 2 BOAs instead of one. I'm not sure what they did different but it is even more comfortable. Great stiffness and great comfort.
