While the Shimano RT5 is considered a road touring shoe, it's a superb choice for commuters and general road riders alike who seek all the stiffness, comfort, and pedaling efficiency of a traditional road shoe that also sports 2-bolt cleat compatibility and a rubber sole for a more friendly, off-the-bike experience. The sole features a glass fiber reinforced shank plate for rigidity and pedaling performance while the synthetic leather upper is the epitome of comfort as well as durability. A traditional triple Velcro strap closure system makes it easy to achieve a perfect fit and the 360-degree reflectivity enhances visibility out on the road.

  • Three Velcro straps for easy adjustment and a precision fit
  • Dynalast provides a precision fit and improves pedaling efficiency
  • 2-bolt cleat compatible

    Shimano SH-RT500 Road Bike Shoes (Black) (45)
    Nice pair of shoes at a good price. Fit was spot on. The markings on the sole for positioning/aligning the cleats is a nice touch. There are graticules for fore and aft adjustment, as well as cant. I wish the mating sections of the velcro straps had a little more engagement. Mine overlap by about an inch. Not saying that is a show stopper as there are three straps. Past experience riding in the rain (not intentional) was that velcro doesn't hold well when wet. Haven't gotten much use yet. Will update if needed.
