  • Shimano's SH-R088 challenged our notions of what entry-level cycling shoes could be. The SH-R088 offers expert-level
    performance at a price point that is perfect for club and recreational riders. When it comes to high-performance road
    shoes, we've all been told that stiffer is better. While this may be true for certain application, an overly rigid shoe
    reduces circulation and can leave your foot numb. Here's where the beauty of Shimano's Dynalast technology (driven by
    pro-rider feedback) comes into play, providing stiffness and flexibility where you need it most. The SH-R088 features a
    fiberglass polyamide outsole that is constructed to deliver power to the pedal, while still allowing a calculated level
    of flex due to varying densities across the sole. This promotes a smoother, more energy-efficient upstroke and will keep
    you feeling stronger for longer. The SH-R088 upper uses stretch-resistant, synthetic leather that is more durable and
    lightweight than traditional leather. More importantly, it is constructed in harmony with the Dynalast system,
    accommodating and adding tension to the toe-spring section, which supports a wider and healthier range of motion for the
    legs. The SH-R088 uppers also feature ultralight open mesh that not only keep your feet cool and dry but also work with
    the synthetic leather to improve the shoe's elasticity. Finally, the SH-R088 securing straps aid in power transmission
    by being deftly incorporated into the anatomic last design. To control the internal volume of the shoe, Shimano has
    equipped the SH-R088 with two hook-and-loop straps designed to offer easy access for on-the-go adjustments. Shimano's
    micro-adjust, ratcheting buckle controls the overall tightness of the shoe and allows for an incremental and precise
    fit.
