Shimano has a long history of providing innovative, high tech and robust components for the unique needs of the gravel and cyclocross scenes. With the new RX800, Shimano now extends the same attention to their apparel line. Think of the RX800 as the perfect mid-point; the medium in a world of large and small. Stiff and light weight for superior power transfer like a road shoe, yet durable, abrasion resistant and sure footed off the bike like a mountain shoe. Carbon fiber outsoles provide the shoe with lightweight rigidity while a one-piece, synthetic leather mesh upper provides protection and comfort. These supple yet durable shoes will stay comfortable long after you get lost meandering the back roads and byways of your favorite new gravel route. With Shimano's Boa retention system, you can be confident that the RX800 will also get you home in both comfort and style.



Features & Specs:

  • Stiff and light weight carbon composite sole
  • Works with traditional 2-bolt SPD style cleats
  • Durable, abrasion-resistent one-piece upper
  • Comfortable and secure Boa closure
  • ~265g (size 42)
  • Shimano Dynalast optimized shoe last

Great look, feel and performance

Looks great, fits very well. I've been wearing Shimano's higher end MTB shoes in size 44 for decades and it's sizing for me has always been spot on.

Very stiff sole for power transfer. The outsole lugs are narrower than those of a MTB shoe so they felt a little wabbly when you first walk in them, but you get used to it and it's no longer noticeable. It doesn't matter much though since you'll likely be pedaling way more than walking.

The fit was a bit snug at first but ended up breaking in nicely. Also getting in them at first was also a bit of a pain, but now that they are broken in it's pretty easy (just undo the BOA all the way). The BOA adjustment is awesome, very snug. I have yet to retighten mid-ride.

I use these for MTB and road (yes, I use MTB pedals on my road bikes). "Gravel" seems like a gimmicky trend to me, but I'm sure these are more than fine for whatever "gravel" riding really means. Liked these so much that I bought a second pair when they went on sale.

Excellent All-Road Shoes, single-BOA simplicity. My go-to all-road shoe now too.

I needed a new pair of road shoes. These are very well built and well designed. The single BOA works without over-binding on my foot. I am an in-between size usually a 12 (11 34) so I end up in 46.5 or 47's . Many don't come in 12 sizes so on this me and my narrow feet went up to 47, and got the silver camo a fun color pattern option (black bike shoes are so bleh). The fit for my tween-size gives a tiny 14 extra room length-wise and width is roomy, but I have narrow feet, some may not like that room. It works well to be able to layer a 2nd pair of mid-weight wool socks for winter under shoe covers. The binding is super gradual and magically hugs your foot more toward the upper half, but foot shape like plays in here. I have found there is a slight break-in occurring and I'm comfortable increasing tension to very snughammer-time tension. I have a medium arch so stock insoles work perfect without the added high-arch ones needed. The BOA binding then snugs you into the nicely padded heal cup and damn, they fit so good. The sole is super stiff, walk-able when you need to. I am now riding these for everything, road, dirt, gravel. They are flat out the best bike shoes I've ever owned riding 35yrs. The one feature a little non-functional is the toe velcro adjust, I would like to narrow things up a bit more but the adjust-ability there is minimal then the small strap doesn't really have much velcro to grab hold with, but I got a 14 maybe so enough, but a little more would be nice. Also I've had some warm days recently and can confirm these breath nicely with my slightly roomy fit. I saw a review where someone claimed they didn't breath, but could be a case of too snug a fit or a fatwide foot blocking all the vent holes. Get fit for a little toe-box room and not too small and you're in business. I ride a big mix of roads and have pavedgravel all-road options all day long in the Col. R. Gorge (WA side). I also ride lone-ranger 99.9% of the time, and shoes I can walk in without sub-par pontoons adapted for SPD was a must-have, you could need a long-walk to cell signal or to get found somewhere paved or not. With 3 all-road bikes and 1 road bike I shifted to SPD pedalscleats after 30yrs on Look pedals for a decent all-road option. I have some decent Shimano Torbal's that are great low-price shoes and other mid-range shoes over the years, even SIDI, Diadora. These shoes I scored on a killer Christmas sale for more than 2x less than some SIDI's I wouldn't trade them for, not for overpriced $400-$500 shoes. I did not like the SIDIs I had years ago, not enough bang for the buck. When Shimano pops out some new colors, I'm coming back for another pair ) ..... Outstanding shoes, road shoes you can walk in. I'm a total SPD convert

Good shoes
by Anonymous

I like these shoes.

Definitely more performance oriented than an all-round product. The Platform is super stiff, not very comfortable to walk around, but still a good solution in my opinion for gravel adventures.

Forefoot is wide enough for my feet to sit without issue and not feeling constricted (9W in running shoes, wear the 42 of these)

Great gravel and dirt road shoe
by Duckberry
Cycling Enthusiast

Stiff, comfortable, and light. This is more like a high end road shoe than a MTB shoe. The full carbon sole puts the power down, and the single boa dial makes it easy to tighten the shoe. The velcro strap is fairly worthless, imo, but otherwise the shoe is prefect. My favorite road shoes was a pair of R220 shoes with wht cat tongue heel. They were perfect, and size 46.5 fit great. I usually wear a size 12 US shoe, and got these in 47 thinking I needed extra room in the winter with heavier wool socks. In retrospect I probably could have gotten a 46.5 and been fine....what a great deal.

I never liked riding with clunky MTB shoes on my gravel bike. These feel much more natural on a drop bar bike, and infinitely more walkable than SPD-SLs.

Excellent gravel Marathon XC Randonee shoes
by jmcckhtp

These are excellent shoes for long rides on SPD style pedals. They feel almost identical to road shoes while riding, but have enough walkability off bike to be functional for commuting or gravel rides with some hike-a-bike.

The footbox is shaped pretty well, so that my wider than normal feet are comfortable, without having to resort to a wide size, meaning a better fit for me in the heel and ankle areas.

The cleats attachment points are pretty flexible. I can get the cleats very far aft on the shoe, which is pretty unique in my experience, and the cleat interface with the pedal is super secure.

Also, the shoes are really well made with nice details, and they are holding really well so far. Oh and they look great!

Stiff sole, easy to adjust
by Alan_F
Cycling Enthusiast

I use Frog or SPD pedals on my road, gravel, and MTB rigs. These shoes are set up for Frog cleats and I use them for road and gravel. I had been using Shimano MTB shoes which were a bit looser fitting and more flexible. These feel more like road shoes and have a very stiff sole and tighter fit. While they are walkable the bottoms are harder and front feels taller than the MTB shoes, so they also feel more like road shoes when walking on hard surfaces. They come with two pads to change the arch height. The medium was attached to the insole and the large was in the box. I had to remove the medium and run just the insole without either pad. Until I realized I could do that I thought they weren't going to fit my feet.

I use the RX800 for Gravel and MTB riding and currently have 1700 mi in the shoes. My focus was on comfort as there are many great stiff, light shoes. I don't have hotspots and they are easy on and off and won't let you down off the bike. I would recommend good shoe covers in the winter as they are well ventilated.

Well designed gravel shoe-light, stiff sole, breathable upper

I now have over 500 miles on these shoes, including both paved and gravel roads. Longest ride has been five hours. They hold your heel well and give good room in the toe box. The no tongue wrap design is a weight saver and, along with the BOA hold the foot well. You just need to make sure that the wrap is positioned properly so that it doesn't bug your ankle. BOA closure is great for tweaking the shoe's tightness. My pair were as light as advertised. The sole gives you great power transfer and the upper is quite breathable. Beware they may be too cool on cold days (not a winter shoe) and with the stiff sole, long hike-a-bikes may be more difficult. My plan is to wear them for training, touring and gravel events, including the Dirty Kanza. They are a well-designed gravel shoe and I am quite pleased.
