Shimano Cycling Sandals
« on: March 14, 2019, 09:36:04 pm »
I know that this topic has been beat to death, but...

I have used Shimano Cycling Sandals for years and my SH-SD65 models are getting a bit worn out.

I have tried the newer SH-SD5, but no amount of adjustment allows them to be comfortably worn.

Does ANYONE know where I might find some NOS (New Old Stock) SH-SD65 sandals in 41/42 size?

The SD5 has two straps and the ones I want, the SD65 has three straps.

I have tried many regular bike websites and Ebay, all with no luck.

I should have bought a few pair when they were available, because eventually a great product gets changed and it doesn't work for you anymore.

The image shows what I am looking for.

Thanks,
Keith

I think the new model is better. It’s a great product too. Don’t be stuck in time. Adapt!

Hey, Keith!

The Exustar E-SS503 bike sandals (SPD compatible) have three velcro-ed straps across the top of the foot.  Good reviews, less expensive than Shimano's offerings, closed toe.  My pair seems well built, but I haven't had them long enough to give a meaningful personal review.

@TCS

Many thanks for the info.

A few days ago, I sent my Shimano's back and have ordered the Exustar's.

They appear to be the only other viable option at this point.

If they fit then I'm going to order an extra pair as a backup.

The newer Shimano SH-SD5's just didn't fit my foot like the older SD65's did.

Thanks,
Keith
