Shimano Goes Flex

Introducing the next step in rowing.
Start using your own shoes on any seat in any boat today.



Our goal has been to develop a foot stretcher system, which features Shimano’s individual shoe concept, while maintaining consistency on feeling and performance. Shimano is proud to introduce the newest addition to our individual shoe concept, the R500F-flex series.


This innovative foot stretcher system features our new flexible soled KSR500F rowing shoes combined with our KPR500F binding system, made to fit any foot stretcher in any boat. Simply mount the binding system to your existing foot plates and clip in your own shoes.

For added performance and better power transfer, we offer an extremely rigid and lightweight carbon foot stretcher option. Increase your comfort, hygiene and rowing safety by stepping into the biggest innovation in rowing footwear yet.

Shimano’s individual shoe concept is now available for everyone. Ask your retailer or boat builder for more details and availability or contact us directly and GET YOUR OWN SHOES
