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

I love these shoes

I have worn Sidi for many, many years. I held off ordering the Shimano RX800 for months. I'm so glad I decided to give them a try. Very light weight, nice secure fit and a great looking shoe. Highly recommended.

I use the shoes for gravel and road riding. They are light stiff and comfortable. They would be great for MTB as well but perhaps not on slickrock.

Incredibly comfortable, no hotspots, light, stiff and no compromise off the bike.

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.

Worth the money. Best SPD shoe I've owned!!!
by CaliNative

I like the stiffness of the shoe and the color. This cycling shoe size was spot on. I normally wear a 12D in New Balance and Nike and the 46 fit me perfect. No break in required and usually that's not the case for me.

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.
