Shimano shoes have for a long time been a favorite here at Glory and now the new S-Phyre seems like it's going to have to continue for us. Shimano shoes just seem to fit so well and the new shoes are an improvement on the shoes of the past. The older SH-R321 was the same size as the new S-Phyre but the new shoe somehow is not as hard, it hugs the foot without pressure but allows the rider the same amazing power transfer. 

Shimano S-Phyre RC9 is the result of extensive development and testing with elite road, cyclocross and mountain bike athletes, Shimano announces its new S-PHYRE line of elite performance cycling footwear. An ambitious concept aligned with Shimano’s aim to create the most technologically advanced cycling solutions available, S-PHYRE has one goal: to maximize power transmission by delivering more performance per gram, minimizing aerodynamic drag and refining efficiencies between the bike, footwear and rider. 

New construction techniques and improved comfort

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.

New S-PHYRE footwear features a new outsole construction technique that eliminates the lasting board, reducing weight and the stack height, resulting in improved stability and increased power transfer. Additionally, an external heel cup suppresses foot twist and roll, allowing for maximized power output through the ultra-rigid carbon sole.


The pinnacle of road race performance, every aspect of the RC9 was designed to maximize power transmission from rider to bicycle using a systematic approach. Taking into account physics and rider physiology alike, Shimano engineers aimed to deliver the ultimate in power transmission and rider comfort.
