As the second in line in Shimano's XC-Racing family of shoes, the XC7 offers high-end performance at a price-point that is in reach for enthusiast trail riders.
Through Shimano's Dynalast technology, the SH-XC7 toe-spring section is optimized to promote a smoother, more energy-efficient upstroke by reducing the loss of power that occurs during the backspin direction of a pedal stroke. Once it's time to push back through the stroke, the lightweight carbon fiber composite sole provides a stiff platform that converts that saved energy in power and acceleration. This means that the whole pedal rotation serves as a cycle to produce snappier output and prolonged endurance.
A supple high-density synthetic leather perforated upper with BOA closure system powers all-day comfort by wrapping the foot securely and uniformly. The dual density rubber compounds found in the outsole provide the right balance of grip, durability and flexibility making hike-a-bike sections more pleasurable.
The Shimano SH-XC7 is a true bang-for-your-buck cycling shoe. With top-level performance and dashing good looks, it doesn't get much better than the Shimano SH-XC7.
Everybody's foot is shaped different, so I'm not sure how helpful fit insights are. But my road Shimano shoes in the same size have a larger toe-box. However, it's not uncomfortable, just noticeably smaller. The BOA cinch works great and feels snug. I took up some extra volume in the show with a 4mm footbed since the closure was at the end of its slack when fully secured. Stiff sole, but totally walkable in loose dirt and gravel. I'd recommend these as a nice alternative to their $400 double BOA, stiffer XC9 model.
I bought this shoe because I was having foot pain on long (6+ hrs) endurance rides, and had good look with Shimano fit in the past. My foot is a little wide and the Shimanos seem to have a slightly wider last, that has worked out well. The Boa fit system sungs up nicely. It's a very plain looking shoe and I don't really care for the shinny vinyl styling, but as long as my fit feel good I don't care. Not many hours yet, so I can't really comment on durability
