If you have wide feet, you don't have to put up with the often all-too-narrow cycling shoe. Adjusting the buckles, dials, straps, and even adding custom orthotics can help to an extent, but if the toe box is too small, most of your ride will be spent pedaling in pain. Hooray for the Shimano SH-RP9 Wide Cycling Shoes, allowing you to slide your boats into a comfortable and efficient cycling shoe.
The wider design obviously ensures that your hoofs aren't under extreme pressure, allowing proper circulation otherwise, they share all of the other designs that make the SH-RP9s such an excellent shoe. A light carbon composite outsole is optimized for stiffness at 10 of 12 on Shimano's stiffness scale, yet still remains comfortable on long rides. An external heel cup provides stability and keeps the rear of the shoe anchored to your foot, no matter how hard you turn the pedals in anger.
The supple microfiber synthetic leather upper is perforated for excellent venting and gives you all the benefits of natural leather in a lighter and more user friendly package. The shoes' refined fit comes courtesy of the micro-adjustable Boa dial with hidden wire routing offering infinite adjustments for a glove-like fit. On-the-fly, one-handed adjustments are a reality with secure locking and a fast release. The lower hook-and-loop strap is precisely positioned to relieve pressure atop the foot.
