Shimano RT82 Road/Touring Shoes
It's not easy to find a good, stiff, road shoe that performs just as well off the bike as on it. Shimano's SH-RT82 Road/Touring shoe is an exception. The combination of glass fiber-reinforced polyamide midsole, flexible insole and rubber outsole with recessed cleat is the perfect storm of multi-purpose performance.
  • Stretch-resistant synthetic leather/mesh upper
  • Flexible insole for a comfortable fit with a wide range of foot shapes
  • Rubber outsole features cleat recess for comfortable walking
  • Micro-adjust buckle and offset dual straps for comfort on and off the bike
  • Compatible with two-bolt SPD style cleats

    Comments about Shimano RT82 Road/Touring Shoes:

    Love this shoe...Great fit, comfortable and the Velcro and latch attachments allow for additional adjustments for more added comfort. Reset cleat allows you walk comfortably in the shoe when off the bike. I wear a size 9.5 shoe and the 43 size fits me perfectly. Have two pair and alternate use. They work very well with my Shimano touring pedals.

      Comments about Shimano RT82 Road/Touring Shoes:

      These work for what I wanted but I have a few issues... They seem smaller compared to other Shimano size 44 shoes I have. The toe box is roomy but has a heavy seam along side my big toes that is annoying. Unfortunately these are the most flexible bike shoes I have, more than an old pair of R087s and my mt bike shoes. The description says STIFF and these are not. The good features: love the ratchet system, they are comfortable and will probably fit nicely once broken in.

          Comments about Shimano RT82 Road/Touring Shoes:

          I paired these with the Nashbar Soho pedals and couldn't be happier. The shoes are comfortable and I love that the top strap ratchets so I can make sure they're nice and tight. The only complaint I have with the shoes is that the instructions that came with, for a person who has no idea what they are doing, are pretty vague and lacking. I looked up how to install everything on the shoe online and was okay then. The shoes themselves are great, though, and I'd recommend them to anyone. They're pretty easy to walk around in as well thanks to being a hybrid of road and MTB style on the bottom of the shoe. Only if I put a lot of pressure on them will the cleats grind against the ground. If I walk normally I almost never hear the cleat make contact with the ground. I can walk normally without issue.

            Comments about Shimano RT82 Road/Touring Shoes:

            I have a pair of the original R80 touring shoe and still wear them 6 yrs later. Thinking of trading them in for a new pair. Have used them weekly for spinning classes and long bike rides. I love the recessed cleat for walking. After one too many slips with Look style cleats I switched to these for road shoes and SPD style pedals. Haven't looked back. Will probably replace with same shoe.

            I like that the sole is not lugged like a MTB shoe, but still has the recessed cleat. It still looks like a road shoe.

              I was concerned about fit but followed the size charts and the fit was fine. Need more bike time to really see how the shoes hold up.

                I love these shoes. I was looking for that right combination of shoe that would provide the flexibility to clip in, while walking comfortably when off the bike. Very sleek looking, great styling, great closure for secure pedaling, quality Shimano product. Fit is true, with just the right amount of room for toes and front part of foot.

                  Comments about Shimano RT82 Road/Touring Shoes:

                  I looked and looked for the right shoe for quite awhile. Unfortunately there aren't many cycling apparel stores in Louisville, Ky. The few that are here sell Bontrager gear exclusively for some reason. Anyway, I had the same pair of Nike road shoes for 14 years and it was just time for another pair. I like the look of these shoes mainly because they were dark. Light colored shoes tend show the dirt and grime much quicker.

                  The velcro fasteners on these are really nice as well as the top fastener. The comfort level is really nice. I got them today and went right out for an hour long ride. They felt like I had been wearing them for a long time. Very comfortable. The sizing is right on the money. Whatever you normally wear for your regular shoe size will translate exactly into these shoes. Oh yeah the toe box is nice and roomy!

                  I'm an avid cyclist that likes speed but also comfort too. You will not go wrong with these shoes!
