Shimano balances style, performance, and comfort with their RP5W Women's Road Shoe, a comprehensively supportive road endurance shoe for training and racing at any level. The one-piece upper features seamless synthetic leather for lasting comfort while the infinitely adjustable Boa® L6 dial closure with hidden wire routing allows you to achieve the perfectly snug fit. The sole is constructed from carbon fiber reinforced nylon, facilitating efficient power transfer. The shoe last has been improved with an optimized toe-spring section. Toe-spring sections that are too high cause tension around the plantar, calf, and hamstrings; when they’re too low, they lead to bowlegged, inefficient pedaling form. The toe-spring section of the RP5’s shoe last is carefully integrated for smoother, more efficient pedaling and energy conservation so it can be better spent during the final sprint to the line. Ventilation in the upper, insole, and outsole are skillfully linked to promote optimum airflow throughout the shoe.
