When you jump out of the car after work and kit up for a ride, you just want to throw everything on and go bask in golden hour bliss out on the roads. If functionality is what earns kit the most coveted spot in your closet, Shimano’s flagship SH-RP9 Cycling Shoe deserves your attention. Shimano shoes deliver the same longevity and durability as its commendable drivetrains, affording you the luxury of assuming they’re just going to do what they’re supposed to, each time.
Shimano graces the SH-RP9 with one of its stiffest carbon composite soles, engineered to provide a limited amount of flex for comfort while maintaining responsive power transfer. Race with it or use it in your training rides and the occasional fondo and it will adapt with signature Shimano versatility. As you turn the pedals, you'll also have the added support of a heat-moldable EVA foam insole helping your feet work more efficiently in the saddle. Choose between two different arch shapes depending on which works best for your foot and the molded heel cup will work with it to give your foot a cushy, secure platform to spin the pedals from. Along the top of your foot, synthetic leather and mesh venting add breathability and provide a slim, streamlined fit with the help of a ratcheting buckle and two easily adjustable hook-and-loop straps.
