Shimano RC3 Cycling Shoe – Women’s. If hook-and-loop straps don’t really catch your eye when it comes to cycling aesthetic, the Shimano RC3 Cycling Shoe offers a taste of high-performance race engineering at a budget-friendly cost. The RC3 Cycling Shoe sits at Shimano’s mid-level cycling range as an upgrade to the entry-level RC1. Now equipped with a Boa L6 dial, which offers incremental adjustments to fine-tune the fitting, the RC3 pedals into a race-ready territory. Underneath, you’ll find reliable power transfer to the pedals with the fiberglass reinforced nylon sole, and the Rubber XC racing pattern gives you extra grip for clicking into pedals and walking around. For comfort mile after mile, Shimano integrates the midsole to the upper for a seamless fit and unified form that stabilizes your foot during high power efforts. The RC3 is compatible with 3-bolt cleats for the traditional road pedal platform.
