A great pair of shoes

I agree they come up slightly larger than expected. I have had mine for almost a year and they are fantastic value for money shoe.

Very nice shoe let down by poor heel fit

This shoe comes up large. I bought EU size 44 (UK 9.5), and although I normally take a UK size 10 (EU 44.5) the shoe is a good fit with the exception of the heel hold. It is very loose at the heel so that walking in them leads to constant rubbing. I haven't tried pedalling in them, but suspect that this would also cause my heels to slip. For this reason I have returned the shoes. Apart from the heel fit issue., the shoe is really nice: soft quality leather upper, stiff sole for pedalling and enough flex at the toe to walk in. The laces and strap enabled me to achieve a snug fit, although I couldn't lock the heel down. My size 44 weighed in at 415g, which is somewhat heavier than many road shoes, but probably attributable to the shoe's robust construction. A shame I had to return them.

Quite a nice pair of shoes

Very nice pair of shoes, good quality leather (but time will tell) and quite comfortable 2 comment though if you are considering those * This is a road SPD shoes. As such the sole is quite hard (better transfer of power) but they are not as easy to walk in as a pair of shimano MTB shoes * Given the sole is quite hard, you need to be quite precise when engaging the cleats. If you are not, given the absense of rubber sole, you foot will slip. Overall the 2 points above will make them less forgiving than the typical shimano SPD shoes that decathlon has in inventory.

Excellent shoes, but sizing is large

These shoes are amazingly comfortable to wear. I have actually worn them for 10 hours off the bike. On the bike they are stiff enough to transfer the power through the pedals, but comfortable on long rides. The leather is breathable but sheds light rain. It is a little fiddly to do up the laces while holding the buckle strap out of the way, and the sizing is large. I am a 44 UK 9.5 and the size 43 fits Ms. The 44 was way too large for me. So overall great value shoes but don't buy them until you have tried them on to check sizing.

Buen producto y muy barato

Buenas zapatillas

Las compré para uso de viaje en, gravel. La verdad es q me sorprende lo cómoda, q sin desde el primer día, cierran bien, aunque al ser de piel, se ensancha un poco, pero el pie no se mueve. Estéticamente tienen ese aire retro, que a los, que montamos en gravel nos va. Cálidas precio bastante buena. El único pero es, q se ve bastante el pegamento por las uniones.

buenisimas zapatillas

he tenido zapatillas muy caras mas de 200e y estas son las que mejor se adaptan a mis pies os animo a que saquéis el mismo diseño sin cordones, aunque salgan un poco mas caras las compraré seguro


Hola muy buenas, soy buen cliente. Para cuando los números 48 en calzado de ciclismo, en carretera y montaña. Gracias


Creo que he tomado la decisión correcta en esta compra. Cubre al 100 % mis necesidades.

muy comodas y buenos acabados

la verdad es que la calidad de los acabados son muy buenos. Tampoco estamos hablando de una zapatilla supereconomica, pero solo con probartela ya te das cuenta que el interior es mullido y de buena calidad. Vengo de zapatillas tope gama (Spesh S-Works) y que quieres que te diga, con ésta hago prácticamente lo mismo y puedo caminar con más normalidad y no acabar con los pies doloridos. Seguramente pierdo unos watios al no tener la suela de carbono, pero a ésta alturas tampoco estamos para batir a Peter Sagan, no? Estéticamente es un notable alto, podría pasar por una Giro Privateer o por ese ultimo modelo Mavic allroad que vale 200 cucas. Como inconvenientes no me convence la lazada interna de los cordones en el strap del ratchet... quizá acabara agrandando el adujero y rompiéndose. Ya le he metido varios cientos de Kms y ninguna llaga ni nada similar

Très bon maintien, taille parfaite, (j'ai fait l'erreur de prendre une au dessus par précaution, j'aurais la marge qu'il faut pour de plus grosses chaussettes). On entend pas le clac-clac des chaussures classiques, on a pas non plus l'impression d'être un croisement hybride canard-cowboy, on sent que le dessous est plat mais si on déroule bien le pied en marchant ça va. Ne glisse pas et ne crisse pas sur les surfaces. Le rembourrage est très confortable et tiens bien le pied sans le comprimer, le cuir isole un peu du froid et on ne le sent pas trop même avec les trous de ventilation. Parfaites pour trajets domicile-travail ou faire ses courses. Utilisées entre 0°c et 20°c, à voir en été. Je reprendrai les mêmes sans hésiter.

Product testing

We made no concessions when testing these RC500 shoes. We approved each component in the lab and chose them for their quality of use. But that wasn't all. We also got numerous testers to put the shoes through their paces on the road. This included some legendary road races (Paris-Roubaix, Tour des Flandres, the Ardéchoise, etc.) as well as lunchtime and weekend rides and gravel rides (RocOrigin83, Gravelxinoise, etc.).
