Good value shoe

Comfortable shoe.I have wide feet and these were better fit than many of the other shoes I tried. Not too expensive which was also a bonus.

Value for money

A wee bit disappointed in the shoes as I've been spoilt with the R170's. Saying that the R170's are a full carbon sole and cost double the price. The soles are slightly flexy compared to none at all. The buckle ratchet is lower quality using cheaper plastic and the shoe fabric seems a bit basic. Well put together though and they fit comfortably. Not sure how long the toe box will last. I'll have to tread carefully. Out on the road they perform well and are comfortable to use. The slight flex in the sole is barely noticeable. I'll use these as my winter shoes as they take both the SPD and SPD-SL cleats. I can rotate with my winter SPD boots and get some more summer use out of the R170's. Overall..... Very good value for money and looking at the reviews they should prove to be reliable.

Best shoe I've had yet

As above, these are the best shoe I've had yet. A lot of members of my club use these too. Extremely comfortable. I use the SPD fitment if that helps anyone make their mind up.

Great Shoes for The Price

For £50 you can't grumble, stiff base and comfortable. Would recommend buying a pair of overshoes to keep your toes warm. My only grumble is that cleets don't last very long before being worn out; but thats not he shoes fault!

Solid

The buckle and strap offer a fast and close fit, and removal. Had a few weeks, but I can see the improvement over my last pair of shoes. I bought them an European size up from my normal size too.

Shimano shoes

Bought these shoes along with other stuff, great quality but you need to size up from your normal shoe size.

Shimano R088 SPD SL Shoes

Only had the shoes for a few weeks but I'm very pleased with them so far. Great fit, comfortable and just the right level of stiffness for a novice

Shimano R088 SPD SL Shoes

I'm new to this cycling lark (at 55!) and loving every minute of it. The shoes are perfect for me at this stage and hopefully for some time to come. I chose the wide shoe for my wide feet and the fit is excellent. Following the advice of others I also chose to buy one size bigger than my normal shoe fitting and it too was a wise decision. The shoes are well made and adjustments can easily be made via the ratchet and velcro straps. Fitting cleats to the soles was a doddle. A value for money shoe and one I would recommend.
