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.
