Shimano SH-WT60

The draw: Built for broad feet

The Sidis are shaped for narrow feet, and the Shimanos are best suited to broader ones. The robust one-strap closure system mounted to a carbon sole creates space for wider feet—just make sure that you need the extra room, or else the fit will be sloppy. Aside from the generous fit, the SH-WT60 is packed with all the key features, including a stiff composite sole and a broad opening for easy entry.
