Not in Kansas Anymore
Go ahead and add a little color to the monochromatic road cycling shoe scene with these ruby red SH-RC7 slippers from Shimano. We have been racking up some miles in these shoes and have fallen in love with the comfort, light weight, and of course, great looks. Slotting into Shimano's Road Competition category, the SH-RC7s are plenty light for tackling our local 'bergs and cols, and a rigid carbon sole and Boa closure ensure that the shoes are stiff enough and can be tightened quickly and easily in preparation for a finishing kick. The only question we have about the shoes is how did Shimano pull off all these great features at such an attractive price?
Shimano fashions the SH-RC7's upper from perforated synthetic leather, which is lightweight, form fitting, and allows air circulation throughout the shoe. The shoes feature a micro-adjustable Boa IP1 reel across the top, with wide anchor points to distribute pressure evenly across the upper. A hook-and-loop strap spans the forefoot for additional adjustability and customization of fit. A stiff carbon fiber composite sole facilitates efficient power transfer with a stiffness rating of 10 on Shimano's 12-point scale, so you don't have to worry about wasted watts through sole flex. Click your heels and find yourself on the winning end of a bike throw.
