@ Shimano had one key objective for its SH-R078 shoes: meeting comfort with quality. And not surprisingly, Shimano did not disappoint. The R078s feature a fiberglass-reinforced polyamide outsole construction that strikes the ideal balance between rigidity and comfort. This outsole system delivers power to the pedal, while still allowing a calculated level of flex. This is possible due to the sole’s variable stiffness and density that accommodates the movements of the arch.Furthering this power transfer are the R078’s securing straps. The shoes feature three hook-and-loop straps that allow you to control the shoes’ internal volume. Shimano has given these a broad and offset design that makes them simple to grab and adjust while in the saddle, should you need to make any on-the-fly adjustments.For the uppers, Shimano used a stretch-resistant, synthetic leather for the support structure. This material is similar to other high-end synthetics in that it’s more durable, lighter weight, and bet

    Very comfortable road shoe, August 16, 2013

    This is a great shoe. Very light and comfortable. I wear a size 11 to 11.5 sneaker and the size 46 fit perfectly. It is my first SPD bicycle shoe and the only advice I have for anyone buying an all around 3 point and 2 point convertible cleat shoe is that if you plan to use the 2 point SPD cleat then make sure you get the Shimano SM-SH40 Cleat Adaptor 3-Bolt To 2-Bolt. This adapter gives the shoe firmness around the cleat, like a mountain bike shoe does and aids in guiding the cleat into the pedal. The shoe will work with the SPD cleat without the adapter but walking is very difficult. The description for the shoe was very incomplete as was the description for the adapter. I have bought the adapter and am very happy with the shoe.

    Good shoe, April 27, 2014
    By 

    Great shoe. Easy to pull on and off. I was concerned that it might be too small but there was actually plenty of room. I typically wear 10.5 and the 45 fit well. Took a little bit of getting used to a “stiff” shoe but I’m completely satisfied with it. I paired it with the Shimano PD R-540 and they work like a dream. Much faster and more efficient than just having standard pedals.
