In Stock: Shimano Custom Shoes

Shimano has been a respected leader in cycling footwear for over 20 years. Their Custom Fit family of footwear – available in road and mountain versions for men and women – strengthens their leading position by offering customizable fit via heat-reactive panels in key parts of the shoe.

We’re proud to begin to offer these shoes along side our already popular Specialized footwear. I’ve been riding the first-generation shoes (the R-300 road and M-300 mtb) since their inception in 2006 and still can’t believe how comfortable they are! Most supportive yet forgiving shoes I’ve owned.

The Custom Fit family features carbon-fiber soles for stiffness and support with the heat-reactive, moldable panels in 3 or 4 key positions – depending upon the model. The formable panels keep the shoe fitting closely in all the right places for a comfy fit which still provides an efficient; “connected-to-the-pedals” feel. Filling out the list of already impressive features is the “cat’s tongue” material that lines the heel cup. This material is infused with directional metal flecks designed to grab your sock and hold it in the heel cup for a solid shoe-to-foot fit.

The men’s lineup consists of two levels: the 200 series and the 300 series. The top-of-the-line R-310 and M-310 (road and mountain respectively) are the evolution of the first generation and feature a super-stiff, lightweight, full carbon sole for best in class stiffness, moldable panels in 4 positions, multi-adjust buckle, and heat-moldable insoles and comes in 2 widths each with it’s own unique sole width. The younger (and less-expensive) siblings: the R-240 and M-230 also have 2 widths available and use a heavier grade carbon in the sole (and carbon-hybrid sole on the M-230 for better walking articulation), 3 heat-reactive panels, adjustable buckle, and a moldable insole for comfort. Available by special order; the women’s versions mimic the 200-series with a female-specific last for better fit. A triathlon version, TR-70, is also available

Our prices for the shoes include the 40-minute, by appointment custom-molding process – a $50 value.

Team Sunset Cycles is already riding the 200 and 300 series shoes and so far the feedback is phenomenal! Stop in and check them out today!
