The SH-RC500 is a lightweight, high-performance and mid-range road shoe from Shimano.

The surround wrapping upper structure reduces overlap and provides a glove-like fit, while the low stack height midsole maximizes power transfer and efficiency.

An integrated sole and upper construction sets a new level of stability, rigidity and lightweight performance.

Mesh/TPU/Synthetic leather composite upper offers better breathability. Down below, the sole is reinforced with light carbon fiber for strength and durability.

Developed specifically for men's feet to ensure a natural, comfortable fit, the SH-RC500 offers performance associated with high-end bike shoes but without the high-end price.

Really glad I got these

Very happy to upgrade to this pair, more arch support than in other shoes and feel great while riding. A bit finicky to put on but once they're on work very nicely

Great fit and stiff sole especially for out of the saddle sprints. Easy to adjust the fit using the BOA.
