Good fit & comfortable. Look smart
Lightweight, semi-carbon, good-looking road shoe. It fits so nice when you buy a bigger number than your regular shoes.
These are awesome. Super comfortable, which was my main concern, and great material. They are not too narrow for my wide feet too! I love these already.
Used to ride MTB shoes on my road bike and decided to make the transition. The RP5 are very good value for a start, especially with Merlin's discount. After a couple of rides, I'm pretty pleased with them. They look quite the part, they're light, stiffness is there, so a good all-round shoe I'd say. A few things to note: - the upper is perforated and quite thin, the sole is ventilated, so the shoes are generally suited to warmer weather. - the shoe construction has no tongue and that may require some getting used-to - the top strap may slightly try to cut inside your skin if tightened all the way - toe room is not too much, so if you have wider feet, consider it - sizing is typical Shimano, one size lager than many, If in doubt, use the leg length guides All in all, I would recommend this product.
I love these shoes! They fit very well - the size guide was helpful. I had a great experience ordering through Merlin. Lots of updates on the status of the order. I will be ordering again!
The product was neatly packed and I was extremely happy to receive it. The product is as per my expectations. It fits well on me and on my bike. I could see a significant difference in speed & effort on the first day itself compared to the normal shoes. Initially I was bit skeptical about this purchase. But I had a fantastic experience on the over all purchase. The item was delivery faster than I thought. Fantastic Merlin cycles, keep it up. Hope to see more packages from MC.
44th pair of shimano shoes and really happy with them. Don't need anything more unless racing
Couldn't put it off any longer as my 8 year old Shimano cycling shoes were deteriorating fast. After some research decided on the RP5. As usual Merlin had the best price on them. I liked the minimalist design simple and white.
Great shoes. However I suggest buying the size up. The fit does come up small
Great shoes for a great price, bought a size 43 which is one size up from my normal size and the fit is just right. Thanks Merlin.
Just getting into cycling and got these bad boys based on online reviews. Definitely wanted a ratcheting/cable system somewhere on the shoe, so these fit the bill. Good deal, didn't want to spend too much on a first shoe. They feel great! Nice and stiff to get power straight to the pedals. They're pretty light and the white colorway is super clean!
I'm happy with these shoes. They are comfortable, light, airy. And they have sufficient rigidity. As for the first road shoes are quite ok. I would recommend.
Very comfortable, lots of vent holes. Notice, that sizes are smaller than stated (usually I wear US 10.5 but 11.5 these shoes suites me perfectly well).
Wanted to ride for a little bit just to get a feel of them. These are my first road shoes and they are fantastic! This pair is a good start and as I didn't want to cheap out too much, these are a great price. I specifically like that they have the SPD and SPD-SL options for cleats. Right now I'm using them with SPD, but I will probably upgrade soon to SPD-SL
Very happy with this purchase. Pretty stiff and relatively lightweight shoe ideal for club racers. Definitely recommended.
