The Shimano RC3 Wide Road Cycling Shoes are specifically designed for wide-footed road cyclists seeking an affordable shoe with solid performance. This mid-level cycling shoe features a fiberglass reinforced nylon sole and a rubber XC racing pattern which results in improved and reliable pedaling efficiency. According to reviews, the RC3 provides just the right amount of flex and stiffness.
The RC30 Wide uses a Boa L6 dial cinch for incremental adjustments and the leather upper is engineered with laser-cut perforations for both front and side ventilation. The stack height on the RC30 is noticeably low and several reviewers found the heel cup shallow. Shimano recommends sizing up as these shoes run small. The RC30 Wide is also compatible with only three-bolt cleats.
