After 25 years since they first debuted, Shimano has decided to release an updated version of their SPD Sandals giving a whole new generation of riders the chance to feel the breeze between their toes as they hit the trails. If that's really something people want.
The SD-501A SPD sandals haven't seen many changes since Shimano released a modern version of the infamous classic after the brand marked 25 years of SPD in 2016. The main difference with the anniversary offerings is the all-new textured footbed with Shimano claims offers a more secure grip for your toes. Also, the Sandals now have a design that more closely resembles the originals with retro styling and the classic yellow SPD logo. They come with adjustable velcro straps to ensure a close fit and the sole is compatible with 2-bolt SPD cleats.
Starting this week the 25th Anniversary sandals will be available for $130 a pair in 38-48 EU sizing. You can find out more here
