Shimano SH-SD500 Cycling Sandal (Black) (47-48)
Very comfortable sandal. Easy on and off with just 2 straps. I wear a size 50 and the 47-48 fit just right. Fine for me but reading the reviews you should order one size smaller to get an accurate fit

WAY TOO BIG! I can't wear these! Dang; I was really looking forward to these. I have another pair of Shimano cycling shoes, size 9 US, 43 EU and those fit great. I also have a pair of Five Ten cycling shoes in size 9.5 US, 43 1/2 FR and those also fit great. Ordered these in the size 43-44 and there's about a half-inch space at the heel and almost a whole inch overhang at the front. What the?! Now I have to pay for the return shipping. Not happy.

The shoes are very nice but the fit isn't quite what I expected. I wear a size 7.5 and the chart showed to order a 39/40. They are about 3/4 of an inch too long. I will live with them but not happy.

I was SO looking forward to this sandal as I love to cycle in sandals and my previous pair had worn out - imagine that. I decided to upgrade to Shimano. It arrived and I was so disappointed when the top strap was not long enough to attach! Sending them back!!

I am very happy with the Shimano cycling sandal and the support I received from Performance.

This is my second pair. The first pair I bought was ten years ago. I wore them every Summer in Florida for ten years until I completely wore them out. That’s why I had to buy a second pair. Nothing feels more awesome than commuting home from work in the pouring Summer rain, hitting a two inch deep puddle in the road at 20 MPH, and feeling the water shoot between your toes. I absolutely love these sandals.

My second pair of Shimano spd sandals. The first pair is less flexible, heavier, and probably better performance. The new ones are not quite as ugly. The real downer is that spd biking sandals no longer come with spd hardware, a fact nowhere mentioned. When I called Performance I was told you have to buy spd cleats and hardware separately. Be aware of this omission before purchasing.

These sandals were way too big and the sizing chart did not help. I recently had my feet measured because I find most biking shoes too small and narrow. Then I have to pay shipping for the return so will not try to order shoes from this website again. It is not good that I cannot reorder another size for trying out and I cannot find any sandals locally to even try on. Thus I will look for this product somewhere else that offers free returns.

I really like these sandals they have a comfortable fit and Velcro tightly, maybe the only minus is that they need a bit stiffer insert but I like the totally open toe and that you don't hear the "cleat" click as much when your off the bike/trike. They even click in easier than my Shimano bike shoes! :)
