Shimano SH-CT40 ClickR Shoe Moss Green
The Shimano CT40 bike shoe is SPD compatible for cycling but it is also comfortable to walk in. They are great for touring, bike commuting and people who have never used clipless pedals before.
I absolutely love wearing these shoes. They keep me clipped in, are comfortable, light, and walk well. Only two complaints is that I feel the metal piece could be a little more recessed and that the shoe noticeably stretches on the upstroke. Other than that a great pair of shoes. I wear for errands on my road bike and they work very well.
Great shoes, I wore them for about 65 miles of riding so far. They are comfortable, have good ventilation, and are true to size.
I like and recommend these for most cyclists - road, mountain, commuter and touring riders. (Competitive riders may opt for a more aggressive pedal system.) I was needlessly concerned about getting these for my road bike. These shoes are comfortable, functional, and don't sound like I'm wearing tap shoes when I get off the bike. I've just graduated from 40+ years of riding with toe cages to clipless pedals, and I refer to these shoes and the pedals that go with them (I'm using the Shimano PD-T700 Click'R Pedal) as "Fisher-Price My First Clipless". I've not yet tweaked the SPD clip position or pedal spring tension and find that locking or unlocking myself to the pedal is almost effortless. I put my feet on the pedals and within a revolution or so, I and the bike are joined. Unclipping is similarly easy; there are supposedly several ways to release this particular system, but I've only tried rotating my heel outward, and have been 100% successful: So successful I have yet to fall (a milestone that my cycling companions cite as their graduation to clipless riding.) I can't verify this but am told this is the clip system used by our bicycle-mounted police...providing power for the pedals without compromising their ability to move freely (chase down perps?) when off the bike.
I bought these shoes for dual purpose duty. I like bike on and off road. The shoes have a flat tread and bottom that works well with platforms when not clipped in. Lightweight enough for less serious road riders. Stiffness is good, while providing some feel. Material is breathable and the shoe just works and is a excellent value!
I like these shoes a lot. I haven't found a pair of road shoes that make my hobbit feet happy, so I decided to try these out for my old-school 90s Lotus commuter/road bike. They're super comfy. The clips are recessed enough that walking feels pretty natural instead of clacking around, yet it's still easy to clip in/out. They fit great on my wide feet. They look good too.
