Featherweight and road-ready, Shimano’s SH-R078 Shoes are full-featured and a great value. Three asymmetrical straps deliver a snug, pressure-free fit while the tough stretch-resistant synthetic leather uppers are breathable to keep you cool even when the pace picks up. Shimano’s Dynalast soles and lasts secure the foot for a more efficient upstroke. And best of all, these shoes are compatible with nearly every cleat system out there.
In order to mount your pedal cleats to your shoes (cleats are included with new pedals and sold separately), the cleats and shoes must have matching bolt patterns.
There are four cleat configurations found on cycling shoes (diagram): SPD-R, Look/SPD-SL, SPD and Speedplay. Road shoes feature one, two or even three of these. Off-road shoes usually use the SPD pattern. If you're unsure which cleats your shoes require, please ask us. We're here to help!
