Take your first step into clipless pedals with Shimano’s SH-CW40 Shoes. Optimized for Shimano’s beginner-friendly Click’r pedals, these lace-up, women’s-specific kicks provide just the right balance between pedaling efficiency on the bike and walking comfort off it. Plus, you get shock-absorbing EVA cushion insoles for plush support and flexible mesh uppers to keep you cool during warm days.
In order to mount your pedal cleats to your shoes (cleats are included with new pedals and sold separately), the cleats and shoes must have matching bolt patterns.
There are four cleat configurations found on cycling shoes (diagram): SPD-R, Look/SPD-SL, SPD and Speedplay. Road shoes feature one, two or even three of these. Off-road shoes usually use the SPD pattern. If you're unsure which cleats your shoes require, please ask us. We're here to help!
