Which size shoe do I need?

When choosing your new Shimano shoes we recommend ordering a size up from your normal shoe size as Shimano shoes come up small against normal shoes.

The below size chart is already sized one up for you e.g. if you are normally a UK 8 then order the size 43 Shimano shoe and you'll get the ideal fit.
