Whoever said you can’t buy fast and light clearly never tried a pair of Shimano S-PHYRE shoes. This new addition to the Shimano cycling shoe lineup is lighter, stiffer, more comfortable, and designed for the most efficient power transfer in a cycling shoe to date.
Here’s Shimano’s take on the tech:
The one-piece outer on S-PHYRE footwear is made from supple, stretch-resistant and highly breathable Teijin Avail microfiber synthetic leather with perforated dimple vents, that are even more flexible, providing a glove-like fit. The surround wrap upper also better accommodates a wider range of foot shapes, now enabling up to E+ wide widths in a standard size. Accentuating the all-new upper design, two independent Boa IP1 dials with Powerzone wire lacing allow for quick and precise micro-adjustments.
This is Shimano’s first highest-end shoe featuring the BOA lacing system. Paired with the one-piece upper, the fit is undeniably fantastic and infinitely tweakable. Gentle, yet secure hold would sum it up. A perfect combination, we’d say.
As an exclusive Shimano S-PHYRE dealer, Bicycle Sport has this shoe in blue, white, yellow, and limited edition black. Call to check for size and availability, as they don’t stay on the shelf for long. Better yet, pop into the shop and try them on. You’ll feel the difference on your feet and on the bike.
