SH-R321 Cycling Shoes - Men's White, 45.0/Wide - Men's

The engineers at Shimano have apparently been sneaking into the Competitive offices and nosing through our diaries while we're out on lunch rides, because the new SH-R321 Cycling Shoes check off all of our secret (and not-so secret) wish list items for top-caliber road shoes. These features start easy with a customizable thermo-form fit in both the upper and the insole, and they end on a more fanciful note with a mint-scented, antimicrobial treatment. Since that's about all we had, Shimano devised its own wish list to ensure that the R321 Shoes went beyond even our wildest, mint-scented dreams. Shimano's list starts with the proprietary Dynalast construction, which increases pedal efficiency by a claimed . 56% on each stroke. While that doesn't seem like much at first blush, any cyclist who's ridden for longer than two hours understands the importance of marginal gains like this. They can be the difference between finishing a group ride or race at the front or struggling to hang on. Dynalast involves lowering the toe-spring and heel section in relation to the arch and metatarsal areas. This creates an optimal pedaling angle on either side of the up-swing, so the dead time spot is shortened. The Dynalast construction's marginal gains are especially important for the R321s since they have the stiffest outsole in Shimano's lineup -- despite the fact that their Hollow Channel design means that some of Shimano's hollow crankset technology has crept into the shoes, saving weight by clearing out unnecessary material. You can be certain that whether you're burying yourself on a climb or winding up for a sprint, the soles aren't costing you any watts because of weight or flex. The soles are finished with an air intake system that you can enjoy during the summer and easily cover with toe caps come the cooler months. On top of that impressive list of palmares, the R321 shoes also boast all the same technology of the less expensive R171 model. This includes the Dynalast co...

SH-R065 Cycling Shoes - Men's Black, 47.0 - Men's

Shimano's all-new SH-R065 Cycling Shoes defy categorization with the usual Linnaean taxonomy of cycling shoes. They come prepared to mount two-hole, mountain-style cleats for trail riding, three-hole Look-style cleats for skinny tires, and a quick on/off courtesy of their two hook-and-loop straps. You may recall this latter feature as a design shared with triathlon shoes -- that's because having just two straps facilitates efficient adjustment while on the bike for a quick exit from T1. The cycling applications for these shoes are virtually limitless; just ask, and they can do. At the heart of the SH-R065s is Shimano's Dynalast construction, which increases your pedal efficiency by a claimed . 56% on each stroke. While that doesn't seem like much at first blush, any cyclist who's ridden for longer than two hours understands the importance of marginal gains like this. They can be the difference between finishing a group ride or race at the front or struggling to hang on. Dynalast involves lowering the toe-spring and heel section in relation to the arch and metatarsal areas. This creates an optimal pedaling angle on either side of the up-swing, so the dead spot is shortened. The polyamide outsole is shot through with glass fibers to reinforce it and further improve efficiency with a stiffness that's just giving enough to absorb road noise and help prevent hot spots. It's married to a synthetic leather upper that resists stretching so your fit remains unaltered during long days in the saddle.

SH-XC51 Mountain Bike Shoes - Men's White, 46.0 - Men's

The SH-XC51 Mountain Bike Shoes incorporate many of the same features found in Shimano's more expensive shoes but with the additional bonus of a more forgiving sole. The XC51s' glass-reinforced polyamide sole falls near the midpoint of Shimano's stiffness scale, meaning it doesn't bend uselessly under load during cross country races, but it also gives a bit of spring when you're off the bike. This springiness, combined with debris-clearing polyurethane lugs and the option to mount a pair of toe spikes, make it ideal for sloppy cyclocross run-ups. These soles are mated to synthetic leather uppers that resist stretching and incorporate cooling mesh panels. The XC51 also leads into trail furniture with an armored toe, so one unfortunate run-in with a granite slab doesn't leave you with a new, aftermarket vent in your shoe. The actual vents included are limited to the top of the shoe, where the relatively vulnerable mesh doesn't risk the depredations of trail obstacles. These uppers wrap Shimano's Dynalast technology, which involves lowering the toe-spring and heel section in relation to the arch and metatarsal areas. This creates an optimal pedaling angle on either side of the up-swing, so the dead time spot is shortened, increasing your pedal efficiency by a claimed . 56% on each stroke. While that doesn't seem like much at first blush, any cyclist who's ridden for longer than two hours understands that marginal gains like this can be the difference between starting the downhill first or being stuck in a slow-rolling line on impassable singletrack. A combination of one ratcheting buckle and two hook-and-loop straps let you vary the fit across the length of your foot, giving you more security at the top and more room for metatarsal expansion at the forefoot. The insole contributes to the fit by comfortably keeping your heel stable. You don't have to ratchet the straps down to the point of losing feeling in order to keep your heel from slipping during sprints or u...

SH-WR83 Cycling Shoes - Women's White, 42.0

Flying under the red kite with a small lead is little consolation when your heartrate has been in the red for several kilometers just to hold off the charging pack. When you're pushing your body to its limits, you don't want to second-guess the gear that you're using. Shimano understands this, and that's why the SH-WR83 Cycling Shoes are designed to be the ultimate women's racing shoe by transferring power as efficiently as possible. The WR83s' ventilated, full carbon outsoles are among the stiffest that Shimano make, giving them pro-level power transfer qualities with no concessions in weight. You can mash confidently knowing that you're not losing any watts to inefficient flex. These soles are mated to a synthetic leather upper that resists stretching and incorporates mesh panels so your fit remains unaltered and your feet remain cool during long days in the saddle. It's cut with a more slender fit, meant to accommodate a woman's foot, and is shaped by Shimano's Dynalast technology, which is the same last design used throughout the Japanese manufacturer's line.

SH-XC31 Mountain Bike Shoes - Men's Black, 42.0 - Men's

When looking for mountain biking shoes, comfort and efficiency are the two most important criteria to consider. With their solid uppers, fiberglass-reinforced soles, and inimitable Dynalast design, the Shimano SH-XC31 Mountain Bike Shoes meet them both. The XC31s' knack for smoothing the trail is appreciated, but the shoes' real star is their inclusion of Shimano's Dynalast technology at such a forgiving price point. Dynalast increases your pedal efficiency by a claimed . 56%. While that doesn't seem like much at first blush, any cyclist who's ridden for longer than two hours understands the importance of marginal gains like this. They can be the difference between finishing a group ride or race at the front or struggling to hang on. Dynalast involves lowering the toe-spring and heel section of the last while keeping the arch and metatarsal areas at the same height. This creates an optimal pedaling angle for leading into and exiting the up-swing of your pedal stroke, so the dead spot is shortened and your efficiency is increased with each turn of the crank. The polyamide outsole is reinforced with fiberglass threads to strike a balance between stiffness and the amount of vibration that it transfers to your feet. After all, energy transference is a two-way street, so while the XC31s aren't ideal for a one-hour hammerfest race, they will keep you comfortable in the saddle for half-day adventures. It's mated to a synthetic leather upper that beats its natural counterpart in every aspect where it counts. The synthetic is less-stretchy, more durable, and lighter, so the XC31s' ability to resist deformation and shrug off grasping twigs and the occasional chance encounter with a rock or trunk doesn't come at the expense of weight.

SH-WM83 Shoes - Women's Black, 38.0

With the SH-WM83 Shoes, Shimano's ever-expanding line of women's-specific mountain footwear has a new queen. The springy soles also offer the option to mount toe spikes, so when the changing seasons render your favorite singletrack loop impassible, they transition easily to the sloppy run-ups of the cyclocross season. The WR83s' outsoles are polyamide reinforced with glass fiber and armored with debris-clearing polyurethane lugs. These soles are mated to synthetic leather uppers that resist stretching and incorporate cooling mesh panels. Given its specialization as a women's mountain shoe, the WR83 also enjoys some additional protection on the toe and is cut with a more slender fit, meant to accommodate a woman's foot. Shimano's Dynalast technology, which is the same last design used throughout the Japanese manufacturer's line, is similarly adapted. Dynalast involves lowering the toe-spring and heel section in relation to the arch and metatarsal areas. This creates an optimal pedaling angle on either side of the up-swing, so the dead time spot is shortened, increasing your pedal efficiency by a claimed . 56% on each stroke. While that doesn't seem like much at first blush, any cyclist who's ridden for longer than two hours understands that marginal gains like this can be the difference between starting the downhill first or being stuck in a slow-rolling line on impassable singletrack. A combination of one ratcheting buckle and two hook-and-loop straps lets you vary the fit across the length of your foot, giving you more security at the top and more room for metatarsal expansion at the forefoot. The insole contributes to the fit by comfortably keeping your heel stable. You don't have to ratchet the straps down to the point of losing feeling in order to keep your heel from slipping during sprints or uphill attacks.

SH-WR62 Cycling Shoes - Women's Black, 39.0

Using the word "performance" to categorize cycling gear is a bit misleading, as it implies that the gear itself is responsible for your ability to perform in the saddle. Shoes like Shimano's SH-WR62 Cycling Shoes reveal the lie behind "performance" gear, skipping all of the marketing hype -- and the cost associated with that hype -- and providing a stage that's efficient and lightweight enough to let you perform to your limits. The shoes are built around Shimano's Dynalast construction, narrowed slightly to accommodate women's feet. Dynalast does actually help you perform by increasing your pedal efficiency by a claimed . 56% on each stroke. While that doesn't seem like much at first blush, any cyclist who's ridden for longer than two hours understands the importance of marginal gains like this. They can be the difference between finishing a group ride or race at the front or struggling to hang on. Dynalast involves lowering the toe-spring and heel section in relation to the arch and metatarsal areas. This creates an optimal pedaling angle on either side of the up-swing, so the dead time spot is shortened. These gains in efficiency are further complemented by the stiff-yet-forgiving outsole. It's a combination of glass fiber-reinforced polyamide with a carbon fiber plate inserted under the cleat area. This makes the already stiff polyamide sole even more efficient at the point of power transfer while keeping weight and cost to a minimum. It also has the added benefit of absorbing road noise, so your feet stay comfortable while spinning for hours at a time. The WR62s' cleat mounting hardware accommodates two-hole mountain cleats and three-hole road cleats, so you have ultimate flexibility in deciding where to spend those hours. The shoes' uppers are a stretch-resistant, synthetic that boasts a higher durability and lower weight than most traditional leathers. It's also more breathable than leather, a quality that Shimano supplements with panels of open mesh and a...

They come prepared to mount two-hole, mountain-style cleats for trail riding, three-hole Look-style cleats for skinny tires, and a quick on/off courtesy of their two hook-and-loop straps. You may recall this latter feature as a design shared with triathlon shoes -- that's because having just two straps facilitates efficient adjustment while on the bike for a quick exit from T1. The cycling applications for these shoes are virtually limitless; just ask, and they can do. At the heart of the SH-R065s is Shimano's Dynalast construction, which increases your pedal efficiency by a claimed . 56% on each stroke. While that doesn't seem like much at first blush, any cyclist who's ridden for longer than two hours understands the importance of marginal gains like this. They can be the difference between finishing a group ride or race at the front or struggling to hang on. Dynalast involves lowering the toe-spring and heel section in relation to the arch and metatarsal areas. This creates an optimal pedaling angle on either side of the up-swing, so the dead spot is shortened. The polyamide outsole is shot through with glass fibers to reinforce it and further improve efficiency with a stiffness that's just giving enough to absorb road noise and help prevent hot spots. It's married to a synthetic leather upper that resists stretching so your fit remains unaltered during long days in the saddle.

SH-XC31 Mountain Bike Shoes - Men's Black, 47.0 - Men's

When looking for mountain biking shoes, comfort and efficiency are the two most important criteria to consider. With their solid uppers, fiberglass-reinforced soles, and inimitable Dynalast design, the Shimano SH-XC31 Mountain Bike Shoes meet them both. The XC31s' knack for smoothing the trail is appreciated, but the shoes' real star is their inclusion of Shimano's Dynalast technology at such a forgiving price point. Dynalast increases your pedal efficiency by a claimed . 56%. While that doesn't seem like much at first blush, any cyclist who's ridden for longer than two hours understands the importance of marginal gains like this. They can be the difference between finishing a group ride or race at the front or struggling to hang on. Dynalast involves lowering the toe-spring and heel section of the last while keeping the arch and metatarsal areas at the same height. This creates an optimal pedaling angle for leading into and exiting the up-swing of your pedal stroke, so the dead spot is shortened and your efficiency is increased with each turn of the crank. The polyamide outsole is reinforced with fiberglass threads to strike a balance between stiffness and the amount of vibration that it transfers to your feet. After all, energy transference is a two-way street, so while the XC31s aren't ideal for a one-hour hammerfest race, they will keep you comfortable in the saddle for half-day adventures. It's mated to a synthetic leather upper that beats its natural counterpart in every aspect where it counts. The synthetic is less-stretchy, more durable, and lighter, so the XC31s' ability to resist deformation and shrug off grasping twigs and the occasional chance encounter with a rock or trunk doesn't come at the expense of weight.
