    I also ride with the RX8 for my 3E wide feet, and the fit is very similar. I have only 500 miles on the shoe, so it is a bit eary

    Overall okay but would like a couple of improvements
    by Terry

    I purchased these shoes for the wide footbed and dual Boa closures to accommodate adjustments while riding. Overall I find the shoe to be comfortable with plenty of space in the toe-box. I have two issues with the shoe: One, I regularly have to tighten the Boas as they get loose over a period of time. It doesn't happen all the time but it will happen a couple of times during a 30-mile ride. I've had bad luck with a saddlebag with Boa restraint so maybe it's just me. The second issue is the top strap and the way it covers the tongue of the shoe. I'm not exactly sure how it happens but the strap and tongue can be positioned just so that it will pinch the top of my ankle. I wish the tongue of the shoe was a bit more "fixed" as it tends to move around, even when the Boa closures are snug. The shoe is light, airy, and comfortable and overall I'm happy with the shoe.

    Great update on this shoe
    by fcmccoy

    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!

    Generic mid-range road shoe

    These replaced a pair of Sidi Dominators after I switched to Favero Assioma pedals.

    I like the Sidis a whole lot more, mostly because of the material quality. These RC701E shoes fit well, look good, and don't weigh a whole lot. I don't think they'll look as good as the Dominators after 16,000 miles, but here's to finding out.

    1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

    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.

    I have wide feet and I've tried a few wide pairs so far, but these are by far the best! They are lightweight with a great fit and I like the BOA closure. Worth the money!

    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 .

    Great fitting shoe for a very hard to fit wide foot
    by Martinezbiker
    Cycling Enthusiast

    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.

    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).
