Why We Like The SH-XC7 Cycling Shoe - Wide

The SH-XC7 Cycling Shoe - Wide might sit just below the XC9 in Shimano's hierarchy of cross-country shoes, however, it does offer a performance to dollar proposition that's hard to ignore. We'd compare it to its XT M8000 groupset, sacrificing a few high-end features to XTR M9000 yet it's still plenty capable for most folks and we'll happily pocket the cash saved for future upgrades or travel expenses later. This particular version of the SH-XC7 comes with a wide last that's a blessing for those of us with higher volume feet and receives the latest updates including the addition of a second BOA dial versus the hook-and-loop strap of the previous model.

Wide last aside, the XC7 Wide is the same as the standard XC7 meaning it rides atop a sole comprising of different materials. Given that the XC7 is a race-ready shoe, the carbon-reinforced midsole is the most important of these layers as it places the XC7 near the top of Shimano's stiffness index. It clocks in at a nine out of 12 on Shimano's stiffness scale, and the only Shimano XC shoe that's stiffer is the S-Phyre (11 out of 12). This is made all the more impressive when you realize that only three of Shimano's road-specific shoes are stiffer and the next stiffest XC shoe ranks a lowly seven.

Shimano's wide shoes are NOT wide

I ordered a WIDE version of this Shimano shoe in my normal 43cm size. The shoe length is fine. However it turns out the foot bed is not wider in Shimano's WIDE shoes, the upper toe area is slightly more roomy. Since my problem is pinched nerves between my toes, this "wide" approach does not work for me. More research into "wide" cycling shoes revealed that Lake actually has a wider foot bed. I ordered a pair of Lake's and we will find out soon if their approach works. If you are looking for a wider shoe, don't bother with Shimano.

Wide size not very wide

Ordered an 11 Wide and these were still too tight across the toes. Other athletic shoes I wear (Salomon, Asics) in wide sizes have more than sufficient room.

Not What I Expected at This Price Point

Very stiff for good power transfer. Shoe is OK but not super comfortable. For a wide, not very wide at all. Insole not very supportive, unless you have flat feet. Not sure of BOA lace durability but it has come loose during ride. I do like the design. The worse part of this shoe? The tongue doesn't have extra length on it so cannot easily be held in place when inserting foot. Stupid design!

Best High performance MTN/race/hike a bi

I had being true large number of mtn biking shoes from $200 Bontranger Cambion to $500 S works MTN shoes. Here is why this is BEST SHOE: 1. Stiff 10 out of 12. 2. Most comfortable fit with double boa laces. Huge improvement BOA even over XXX Bontranger at $450. 3. THE BEST HIKE A BIKE/WALKING SHOE. Only laced version of Giro matched this feature. No longer walking Clinking and landind on spd metal. 4. Spd is hidden with full michelin super grippy sole *Extra padding ads little weight and slight exterior bulk build. But for some 100 mile MTN bike events like Marji Gessick where you will walk multiple times or race like Breck epic this is definitely my new shoe. ** I will absolutely try this shoe in race version which have stiffest sole, same muchelin rubber, same boa but without as much padding.
