Shimano S-Phyre RC9 road shoe details and review
  • Spider

    Any of the models come in 49/50? Shimano used to (R320) offer the larger sizes….thank you

  • Tim Ashton

    Glad they went with standard BOA straps and did not try to engineer their own version. Northwave did that and they are not nearly as good as BOA

  • FT27

    Very clean looking shoe. I was expecting them to ruin it with labels/logos. Kudos to them for keeping it minimal.

  • Eat More Lard

    Any pricing on the RC7 yet?

  • pervertt

    Good looking shoes, Shimano. Please ensure there are wide versions for those of us blessed with duck feet.

  • come_again

    So David, when you went out for your last ride, which did you want to put on your feet, S-Phyre or S-Works?

    • Dave Rome

      Only just saw this. Better later than never, right? My preference is with the S-Phyre, it’s a gentler hold.

  • Jon Cannings

    Northwave made socks to fit with their extreme shoes, ventilation in the same place on the socks as the shoes. I think they discontinued them after one season.

  • Reporoutdoor

    I used to think I had narrow feet and discovered they are “low volume” due to the low instep height. The extra padding on top of these new socks are a great idea as they should add some bulk to my foot without adding width.
    Thanks for your review and your previous review on the R171 for which I plan to retire for these new beauties!

    “Shimano’s purposeful rearward placement of the arch support a little too aggressive for my feet”. What is the purpose ? I tried a pair of these on and they felt great, but the standing in them the rearward arch was intrusive. Im intrigued as to whether anyone else has felt the same, or owns them and can comment on this ?
