What's Cool In Road Cycling

Limited Edition Shimano XC5 Camo Shoes

For 2018, Shimano’s Lifestyle Gear division engineers were excited to release their first gravel-specific product: the XC5 shoe that was announced at Eurobike/Interbike 2017.

A special “camo” edition of this shoe was produced and was just made available as a limited edition release of approximately 1,000 pairs worldwide. The shoe shares the same specs as the in-line XC5 shoe (below) as well as the same pricing at $149.99 (USD). This limited edition shoe Shimano made available EXCLUSIVELY at IBDs.

This camo edition shoe made its North American debut at this weekend’s Almanzo 100 gravel race in Spring Valley, Minnesota where Shimano personnel and influencers were racing en force. Please find a photo below of Jessie Gascon, Shimano Lifestyle Gear product manager who helped develop the XC5 racing in the camo edition shoe at Almanzo.
