Shimano IC300: Great for cycling and non-cycling activities
The Shimano IC300 is designed specifically for indoor cycling with walkable features in mind. Because of this, a few owners love that the shoe can be used in several cycling and non-cycling activities.
Stiffness is compromised due to its walkability. But, it is still stiff enough to do its job. However, a few commenters who are used to stiff soles wish this pair was more rigid.
This is a 2-hole cleat compatible shoe. Some wearers are happy with its recessed design because it makes walking around effortless.
BOA L6 dial makes on-the-go adjustment possible
This Shimano bike shoe's closure makes on-the-go tightening and loosening easy, a number of users say.
The Boa L6 dial can be opened, tightened, and adjusted easily. The micro-adjustments make fine-tuning for a snug fit effortless.
The IC300 is comfortable for cycling and walking
Dozens of reviewers affirm the Shimano IC300's excellent comfort. With the shock-absorbing EVA midsole, walking comfort is maximized.
Aside from the EVA midsole, the shoe is also roomier, allowing cyclists with wider feet to cycle without hurting their feet due.
Cycle without sweating
The build of the Shimano IC300 provides breathability and keeps feet cool while working out, according to a couple of indoor cyclists.
The sock mesh upper is responsible for handling the heat and maximizing the ventilation of the shoe.
Easy transition from studio to street
Several purchasers adore the pair's sneaker-like aesthetic and add that it eliminated the need for a shoe change after a class.
Compared to the IC500's traditional cycling looks and features, the IC300 displays a casual design and provides a feel reminiscent of the everyday sneaker.
