Pro fit and pro-level performance: That's Shimano's SH-XC90 cross country shoes. Tough Rovenica synthetic leather uppers provide support and long-term comfort, while the heat-moldable insoles ensure that these shoes will fit like nothing else. The Cross X straps relieve pressure on the top of the foot and the micro-adjust buckles allow on-the-fly fit adjustments. The soles are light, stiff, and provide stellar power transfer due to carbon cleat plates and reinforced footbeds. Shimano Dynalast technology places the riders foot in the most efficient ergonomic position, and the aggressive, mud-shedding treads on the outsole provide sure-footed grip should you ever have to get off the bike.
Shimano's Custom Fit technology provides a comfortable, glove-like fit to maximize the three components to the pedal stroke: the Pull, the Lift, and most importantly the Drive. Eliminating gaps between the foot and shoe, reducing friction, and stabilizing the foot all add up to one thing: efficient power transfer to the pedals.
