Description

The Shimano SH-GR701 provides everything you need from a high level, flat pedal shoe. Excellent grip from the Michelin rubber outsole, extra impact protection from its robust toe cap and padded ankle collar, and importantly, comfortable walking.

Who's It For: This shoe is designed for hard-hitting days on the pedals and is perfect for Aggressive Trail, Enduro or DH riding.

Pedal Interface: Flat pedals only.

Closure: Nothing too fancy here, they feature a traditional lace-up style closure.

Upper Materials: The upper is made from a combination of mesh and durable TPU. This stops the shoe from absorbing a lot of water and allows it to dry quickly (no more stinky bags). They also feature an asymmetrically raised padded ankle collar and sidewall sole for added protection.

Sole Materials: The sole is made with a high-grip Michelin rubber bottom, with EVA and a shank plate for extra protection.

Sole Type: The sole is divided into three parts. It features an extremely grippy middle section for your pedals and added tread for walking on the heel and toe sections.

Weight: 382gm for a size 42.

Last/Width type: Features Shimano's Volume Tour last which has extra volume at the ball of the foot for added comfort and support on and off the bike.

Pros: They are grippy and offer a lot of protection against impacts, which is what you need in a shoe for gravity riding.

Cons: Probably a bit bulky for XC or light trail style riding.

Has boosted my bunnyhop height

Better than the gr501s I had and more grippy

Good shoes

Oh also pretty good for wide feet; I wear size 42 running shoes and I upsized to 43 and they fit well

Sizing.

by

I haven’t ridden with them yet so my review is just in sizing. I have found Shimano’s sizing for the shoes seems a bit off. Their “cm” sizing is off compared to “US EU”. For this reason I went for the CM sizing as 29cm is 29cm. I have found doing this the shoe is quiet long and I think that using the EU sizing as I usually do would have been a better fit. The toe cap is quiet tall for how thin the shoe is too. They are a very different style of shoe to the 510’s. looking forward to riding with them and see how they go.

A great alternative at a competitive price point!

These shoes are great, while being very different from the Five Ten I've worn over the last 20 years.
- The sole is much stiffer but the shoes don't bounce from the pedal more than the Five Ten (I ride an Enduro HT on very rocky trails so this is very important for me).
- The Michelin rubber feels quite hard but the "Bibendum" engineers know their stuff (of course ze're Francais!) and it is really sticky even when wet and muddy.
I even found that it was a bit easier for me to reposition my feet while riding in technical sections.
- The build seem to be very strong with the front part of the sole swan.
- Much easier to clean than the Freerider, more waterproof but not hot (I was very surprised).
- For my wide feet, they are super confortable (I always go a size up with Shimano), snug around the mid-foot and a wide toe box.
Recommended for riders with wide feet.

Good shoe for the price

Fits well even for my wide foot. Grip is very good, not like five tens, but almost and at this price point it’s good value. Yet to see if it’s going to last. Got 2 years out of my five tens

Good flat pedal shoes

by

I’ve used these shoes for a number of rides now and they have been great! They’re comfortable to wear riding and also while walking. When used with a good set of pedals they provide plenty of grip even on reasonably rough trails. They’re nice and lightweight and feel good for trail and enduro riding. They’re quality shoes at a reasonable price and I would definitely recommend them.
