Shimano IC3 Women's Indoor Cycling Shoes with Cleats
Something you might wear all the way from home to the gym...
Shimano is ready for SoulCycle, Equinox, FlyWheel, or whatever spinning class you sign up for thanks to a pair of new performance indoor cycling shoes. Pick the modern classic sneaker appeal of the IC3, each offers Boa dial closures, clipless pedal compatibility, and maximum ventilation for riding in a hiit gym…
Developed specifically for the hot & poorly ventilated environs of indoor training, the shoes ditch any attempt to protect your feet from the outdoor elements, instead maximizing ventilation with mesh upper construction. Whether you are at the gym for spin class or at home training rollers in your basement, the new IC3 shoes try to keep your feet comfortable taking advantage of unrestricted airflow while pedaling.
shimano IC3 shoes use an inset mountain bike style SPD cleat interface since that is what you are most likely to find in spin class. MTB cleats also makes for a shoe you can actually walk in – an important concern when navigating slick or bare floors in gyms, bathrooms & locker rooms.
The IC3 model has an upper that looks more like a traditional training shoe with sections of breathable leather and mesh. A Boa dial on the side of the shoe quickly and precisely ratchets up the tension from the guide wires. The sole, rated 2/12 for stiffness, is designed for comfort on and off the bike. The IC3 is also aimed towards women (sizes 36-44) and weighs 326g.
Lorena Isasi, Shimano ambassador and spinning instructor at Las Canas fitness center, Madrid offered this take on the indoor cycling footwear: “Most of the riders attending our classes know that they can get a more efficient work out by clipping into the pedal. The connection keeps your feet fixed in one place so your knees and hips always move in the same motion, which can reduce the chance of injury. Personally, I also like a comfortable and fashionable shoe that I can also use to walk around the gym. Finally, most of our riders end up in a sweaty mess after a work-out so anything that can help cool them down is a clear winner!”
