    Great fitting shoe for a very hard to fit wide foot

    Every previous road shoe has always hurt my big toes, to the point of agonizing pain on long rides. This shoe fits wonderfully well, I don't have to cut out the big toe in the uppers to give my toes more room, and it barely hurts at all - which is amazing.

    Great wide shoe to replace old Sidi Genius Mega width shoes

    Review for Shimano SH-RC7E Wide Road Shoe

    I have been ridingracing Sidi Genius Mega wide (size 45) shoes for decades. Opted for the Shimano RC7 wide shoe this time for light weight, BOA closure and carbon sole. The RC7s perform perfectly for me, exceeded my expectations, and have a roomy toe box to stuff a hand warmer in there on cold days. Thinking they would run a little larger than the SIdis, I first tried them in size 44 and they were too short and Western Bike Works quickly swapped them for size 45 and they have been perfect for several hundred miles of ridingracing.

    Review for Shimano SH-RC7E Wide Road Shoe

    These are the best fitting bike shoes I have used in my 12 years riding. The wide sizing meant that I could size down and still have enough toe box room. I have always worn shimano shoes but this is my first pair with boa. Time will tell how they holdup but so far I am loving the way they feel.

    Great update on this shoe

    I have held off several years on replacing my prior Shimano RC301 (?) wide fit shoes for fear of how difficult it has been in the past to find a suitable wide-fit shoe - to the point my old ones were held together with super glue and the cleats could not be removed. My skepticism peaked when I held the RC701 next to my old shoes and noted they were on a slightly narrower last. However, now that I have now put a couple of hundred miles on them, I note that the uppers are supple and super adjustable for a perfect fit, the heel conforms well and the power transfer on the sole is as good as any shoe. I guess I should not have waited so long!

    Ocala, FL. Pretty flat, subtropical

    Allow me to begin by saying I'm hard to fit Narrow heel but have flat feet and a pronounced big toe bunion on the left foot. Right foot bunion isn't as large. I NEED a big toe box. These RC701E shoes offer the adjustability in fitment that I was looking for. The dual BOA adjustments allow each shoe to be fitted for each foot. These were comfortable right out of the box. After installing my Speedplay cleats, the first ride was a joy. My OLD shoes were Specialized brand, with a velcro toe adjustment and BOA instep adjustment....absolutely wore them out.

    The RC701E has a carbon sole and is a little stiffer than the Specialized composite sole....one can tell the difference. Have 5 or so rides behind me....still very pleased with them.

    If I could give them a 6 rating, I would.

    Superb adjustability, just what I needed. I'd buy these again in a heartbeat. Extremely comfortable, lightweight but a solid platform. You will NOT be disappointed. I need a wide toe box but have narrow heel.....these fit like moose hide moccasins. Love, love, love.

    Did not ride much last summer so when I came back I needed some new shoes . I can notice a difference in my riding and getting more out of each stroke of the pedals . advise getting the next size up that your foot measures up to .

    Amazing stiffness in the sole. Wonderfully made quality shoe. Is a real bargain in the mid $100 range. Unfortunately i had to return because they caused pain in my right foot. I typically wear a 10-10.5 EE shoe. Ordered these in a 45. Quite long but width was right on.

    I use these shoes on my racy road bike. My motivation to buy these shoes was out of a desire for comfort more so than stiffness. These shoes fit my wide feet well and allow me to ride comfortably for more than 3 hours. The stiffness is all there though! On my climbs I feel little to no flex and can take comfort in the fact that those watts are going straight to the rear wheel. In summary a stylish racing shoe with ample comfort for those of us with feet wider than a ballet dancer ( I have tried on multiple pairs of shoes from different makers, constantly disappointed in how narrow they make their shoes).

    Review for Shimano SH-RC7E Wide Road Shoe

    These were my first Shimano road shoes, having previously ridden Specialized Elites and Audmax. The Shimano were a perfect fit right out of the box without any need for custom insoles. I was fortunate to get these on sale and couldn't be happier. I use Speedplay pedals so I did have to buy an adapter plate for the cleats, but not a big deal, though they will add about $35 to your ultimate cost. I wish Shimano would provide the adapter for Speedplay cleats with shoe purchase.

    Love these shoes. I usually wear a 43E and sometimes 43EEE. These shoes fit great. The toe box is roomy and the shoes are stiff, high quality, and the BOA enclosure is a dream.
