Why We Like The SH-RC7 Wide Cycling Shoe

Shimano's SH-RC7 Cycling Shoe - Wide would represent its Ultegra groupset if it were components and not footwear meaning that it's within a hair's breadth of the performance of its RC9, its Dura-Ace counterpart, while saving a good chunk of change in the process. This particular version brings a race-ready shoe to those of us with wider feet needing higher volume shoes. As with its standard width version, these shoes boast a rigid and lightweight carbon composite sole and supple upper to strike a balance between high-intensity racing and training and long mile comfort with some money left in the bank so you can go race your bike.

Shimano fashions the SH-RC7s from perforated synthetic leather, selected for both its lightweight comfort as well as its ability to usher cooling air throughout the shoe. Each shoe fastens with dual, micro-adjustable Boa L6 reels, one across the top with wide anchor points to evenly distribute pressure across the upper and a midfoot one that offers micro tension adjustments of the powerzone wire guide. Underneath, a stiff carbon fiber composite sole facilitates efficient power transfer with a stiffness rating that sits at a 10 out of 12 on Shimano's scale, which means you don't have to worry about wasted watts or fatiguing sole flex.

  • A higher volume road shoe that blends comfort and performance
  • Light, efficient carbon fiber composite sole
  • Breathable synthetic uppers for comfortable security
  • Dual Boa L6 closures dial in the fit with micro-tension adjustments
  • Compatible with three-bolt road cleats

Finally Found A Wide Cycling Shoe

I've used it several times
Runs small
Size Bought
5` 10"
185 lbs

I switched from Specialized because Shimano wide cycling shoes were much more available and had better reviews. The BOA system is a lot different from my old velcro but I adapted pretty quickly. Being able to adjust the tightness across much of the length of your foot is huge. The fit is good with the carbon fiber soles making a big difference in power transfer. I wear an 8 1/2 but went with the 43 for a little extra margin. I am glad I did as I need the full length.

Good fit, wish it had a 2-way BOA dial

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
True to size
Size Bought

I bought these to replace a 2-year-old pair of RC7's. The fit is great, they look good, and they feel really light. The only reason I give them 4-stars is that the BOA dials only tighten. The last model of RC7's had 2-way adjustable dials. It made adjusting them a lot easier than popping the dial open and trying to re-tighten a few times. Just something I have to get used to being spoiled with the better ones from the past pair. I bought the 43E's at first as that is what I was wearing with the old RC7's. They were pretty snug so I returned them for the 44E's. This is strange because my old ones were just 43's not wide ones(E). But my even older Shimano R241's are 44E's. I would definitely recommend these as they are a good fitting and feeling shoe.

Biking Shoes

I've used it several times
True to size

I say thus far the shoes work really well. It still feels a little snug, but no discomfort while riding my bike. I did exchange size 44 for a size 46 because it was the same as the size of my current shoes. I think my old shoes were a bit small, for it became uncomfortable during long rides. I am training indoors, so it hard for me to say how the longer rides will be on my feet.

I set them up with look cleats and they are awesome. Boa is super nice. Super light, stiff and good power transfer. Very good for hot climate. Wide fit is perfec, built quality and materials is very good.

Good, but incorrect sizing chart

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

I wear between size 12 and 12.5 US. The sizing chart on this webpage equates that to a size 47 EU. For me, the shoes were a full size too large. A size EU46 would have been just right. I already had a ride planned, so I made do with them. If you have wide feet, and you order a size smaller, then they should be very comfortable.
