    Shimano R315 road shoe

    Item: Shimano R315 road shoe
    How long used: 3 weeks
    Where used: road/street
    What similar product have you used: Sidi Dominator
    RRP $400/$450
    Cheapest online i found was $250/$280 (have to pay a bike shop extra $50 to do the custom fitting though if you go down this road)

    Was looking to upgrade shoes a few weeks ago and liked the tech that had gone into the Specialized S works but they don't do half sizes over here in Aus, and i needed a 45.5 after trying them on.
    Tried these on and they fit like a glove-plus they have half sizes here in Aus, but a 46 was spot on-I also have a pretty wide flat foot too.

    They have the heat mould capability and i was told to wear the shoes in for a week or so before i had the moulding done, i thought they were comfy before the moulding but after they really do fit like a glove.

    Pros: Stiff and really comfortable.

    Cons: For wet weather they aren't the best-there's mesh ventilation in the sole and water just flows in, also for the money i would have liked to see replaceable moulds (can't think of the right name) but the bits that contact the road when your walking.
    Styling isn't great, and only comes in the one colour option, that being white

    Conclusion: They aren't cheap, but for me tick the two big boxes for shoes, stiff and comfortable.
    It's a shoe that i can see me myself doing many comfortable km's in, if i had the cash i'd be getting the MTB version for sure.

    Seconded. I bought Bailey's first pair that didn't fit him and I am stoked with them.

    try putting duct tape over the vent areas in the sole when riding in winter/wet weather, should keep the water out.

    to the OP: pictured are two different shoes - in fact, pictured are two right shoes. do you have two right feet?
