You don't need to have an enormous bank account to get top-level gear. The Shimano R088 road cycling shoes deliver expert-level fit and performance at a value price. The fiberglass reinforced polyamide sole is stiff and lightweight for optimized power transfer, and the ratcheting micro-adjustable buckle strap makes it easy to find the perfect fit, even on the go. And it's not just all about performance either. The anatomically curved last and molded EVA footbed cushions are supremely comfortable, so you can ride further and longer.

Shimano R088 Road Shoes
Sythetic, mesh upper; fiberglass reinforced polyamide sole
I'm new to cycling and am doing about 150 miles per week; this is my first proper road shoe. Stiffness seems excellent yet slightly forgiving. Air channels just below toe bed and sole provide terrific cooling for the feet.
I have very large feet - a US 14.5, in non-athletic shoes - and the size 51 fits perfectly.
