Shimano SH-R078 Road Shoe

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.

Very good shoe at a great price
I had to buy new road shoes to replace another pair of Shimano shoes I had used for 14 years (the velcro finally lost adhesion). These are very good basic cycling shoes. I like the Shimano shoes because their toe box seems a little wider than other cycling shoes. I have done about 10 rides in my new shoes and they have been great , almost no break-in required. The price was almost half of what others are charging.

PROS: Well Ventilated, Good insole, Durable upper

does the bottom of the shoe have a plastic sole or rubber?

I just bought (from Jensen) a Diamondback Century road bike. Looking for pedals and shoe combination - would the Shimano RO78 shoes and the Shimano PDA250 pedals be a good option?
