The Shimano Men's SH-RC903 Wide S-Phyre Road Shoe is the next generation in ultimate performance. For the new 903s Shimano took the best and made it better, adding more ventilation, a more comfortable fit, and reducing weight.
From the ground up, the 903 starts with the same Shimano ultra stiff carbon sole (12 on their stiffness index) for unrivaled power transfer. For this iteration it's now ventilated at the heel and toe to keep your feet from overheating during your hardest efforts.
The fit is improved with a new 2-way BOA Li2 system to get your precise fit dialed in every time. The lacing has been updated to get you a more secure fit without hot spots, especially on the toe box. Combined with the supportive but flexible microfiber leather upper and redesigned anti-twist heel cup, this shoe is made to keep your feet locked in so you can stay focused on any sprint, climb, or descent you're pushing to the limit.
And with a claimed weight of just 225 grams in a size 42, the 903 comes in at least 10 grams lighter than the 902.

I have a Wide foot, so my options are limited. Wider than regular, but not silly wide like some brands. Similar to my Specialized W MTB shoes. Quality seems pretty stellar and I expect I'll have these for a long time!
I've owned multiple Shimano, Specialized s-works, Lake and Quoc bike shoes. I really didn't think anything could top the older s-phyre I had in fit and aesthetics. After having these for about a month I do believe Shimano did an outstanding job on the 903. Hands down my favorite cycling shoe ever with great power transfer and ZERO hotspots, which is really rare for my odd shaped feet (Have a wide toe box plus the outside/anterior joints that protrude outwards). Very happy my need was timed with the latest model release, not the least of which is due to the all white color way (no black or champagne colored heel). Only thing up for longer term debate is the fabric on the middle of the toe area and how clean it will keep. The prior model did not have this, but I can definitely say these are more breathable for it!
Iï¿½ve had to go through a run of bike shoes and finally spent the money on these. They are the most comfortable shoes Iï¿½ve owned - and one of the most comfortable shoes Iï¿½ve owned, full stop.
The wide size fits my foot perfectly. The shoe is otherwise true to size.
Very lightweight, good ventilation and ultra stiff, but not uncomfortable.
The heel retention is incredible - yet somehow no discomfort or chafing. A great design.
The price is high, but commensurate with other high end shoes out there.
Brilliant shoes, highly recommended.
