SHIMANO footwear is developed using our unique understanding of how the foot interfaces with the shoe and pedal to optimize comfort and maximize power transfer for smooth and efficient pedaling.
All SHIMANO footwear closures are anatomically designed to reduce pressure and tension on the highest points of the foot. By wrapping the foot securely and in a uniform method, comfort is improved and added power transmission created.
Unlike conventional closures, SHIMANO's anatomically precise Offset Straps relieve tension at the highest point of the foot, where pressure tends to be greatest.
Our Cross-X Strap system is built for the on-foot challenges of off-road riding with the real-world need of alleviating pressure when off the bike.
Super low-profile reverse buckle holds foot securely.
The Boa® System offers infinite adjustment for glove-like fit. On-the-fly, one-handed adjustments, secure locking and fast release.
Breathable mesh for superb ventilation
Layer closest to the foot is soft and comfortable
SHIMANO has developed a new frontier in moisture control with our 3D mesh. Three layers that 1 / control temperature, 2 / wick away moisture, and 3 / ensure an ideal fit. 3D Dry Mesh keeps feet comfortable during quick transitions and extended rides.

SHIMANO MW7 winter shoes are engineered with GORE-TEX® Insulated Comfort technology for protection and comfort in cold weather conditions. Designed for riding in rain, snow, and cold, they combine durable waterproof construction and optimized breathability with the added warmth of insulation. This makes them an ideal solution for trail riders without an off-season.

Every SHIMANO cycling shoe uses supple yet durable upper materials engineered together with our unique closure options to secure the foot firmly and comfortably without hot spots or pressure points.
Efficient power transfer demands a stiff and rigid sole that can result in heel slip. SHIMANO cycling footwear is engineered with lightweight internal or external 3D Anatomic heel cups, which secure the heel to eliminate slip and chaffing while maximizing power transfer.
On select models we utilize an external heel cup for enhanced heel hold and optimal durability.
Whether it is our ultra-stiff carbon fiber DYNALAST road performance soles, rider-tuned off-road TORBAL® soles, or on and off the bike optimized city touring soles; every SHIMANO sole is designed with the specific user in mind.
