Shimano’s flagship RP9 (Wide) road shoe combines beauty, high performance, and a wide fit without sacrificing comfort. Your robust feet will thank you for choosing a high-performance road shoe that actually fits their unique shape. Boasting an ultra-stiff woven carbon-fiber sole, the RP9 becomes your body's foundation for absolute power and pedaling efficiency. This works in symbiosis with the shoe’s heat-moldable midsole and wrap-around upper, which provide comfort and performance-enhancing fit like you’ve never experienced. The RP9’s minimalist upper design focuses on all-day comfort and functional performance, utilizing an adaptable closure system that accommodates various foot shapes and keeps the shoe uncluttered and aerodynamic. And, you’ll fall in love with the air port on the toe that brings air into the shoe to carry heat and moisture out the exhaust ports on the sole, helping your feet stay cool, dry, and comfortable.

I've been cycling for about 30 years and have owned at least 5 different pairs of cycling shoes. The RP9 are by far the best. There are no hot spots, no places where it rubs or puts pressure. That's because the foot bed and shoe is heat molded to your foot. Nothing compares to the fit and comfort of these shoes. Seth did a great job of fitting them to my foot.
