Shimano R078 Road Shoe

Simplicity is a thing of beauty, and Shimano’s R078 road shoes serve as perfect evidence. You can say that judging by their price point the R078 shoes are “entry level,” but if you stand back and look at them again, you can see that’s simply not the case. Sure the more race-focused shoes feature a ratcheting buckle and carbon soles, but the R078 shoes offer a simple “three straps and you’re in” closure system that’s plenty secure for mid-week training or weekend club rides. Weighing a tad more than carbon fiber, the fiberglass reinforced nylon outer sole provides a sturdy platform for kicking up steep climbs, jockeying quick descents and making quick accelerations on the group rides. Additionally, SPD and SPD- SL cleat compatibility enables the R078 road shoes to be used both on the road and even in the gym, if you’re into that.

In its essence, the R078 may not be a first choice for seasoned racers, but for just about everything else, including learning how to clip-in, putting in off-season training, or commuting, the Shimano R078 shoes are an excellent option and a great case for expelling the term “entry-level” from the cycling dictionary.

Editor’s Note: One of our employees had the chance to put a pair of the R078 shoes through some strides. Be sure to click here to read the Employee Tested review in the Jenson USA Journal.

        I wanted to spend little money for indoor cycling shoes. I've used these several times a week for about a month now. They work well so far. The price was great. About half of the retail price in stores.

          Cannot beat this price point for an additional pair of shoes. Purchased these for indoor cycling (ensure you have a matt as these are road shoes). Very pleased with the purchase. Everything Jenson claims about Canadian purchases is true - no hidden fees, no additional duties or taxes - simple transaction. Even with the horrific value of the Canadian dollar saving were had.

            This shoe is comfortable and well ventilated. My feet never get too hot. I normally wear a size 41, but had to get a size 42 to fit me properly. I would recommend this shoe to any price conscious avid road biker.
