This product is featured in: Shimano launches range topping SH-R321 road shoe.

A stiff sole, soft plyable upper and supportive innersoles combine to make an incredibly comfortable shoe. These three factors 
ensure comfort surrounds 
the foot while preserving performance, with a stiff shoe-pedal interface.

The soft upper tightens all round the foot — with two offset Velcro straps and one larger strap with a ratchet — without 
suffocating your foot. The soft top strap is especially good as it doesn’t dig 
into your ankle.

The beauty of the 
custom-fit innersoles is the arch supports (high and middle supports came with this test pair), which corrected my 
pronation and helped keep my knees in the vertical plane while pedalling.

 

Verdict

The R260s are heat mouldable (including the innersole) but their comfort is such that I haven’t needed to use this. My only complaint is the colour. Black makes them look big and clunky, so it’s oversocks when 
I wear them.
