If you happened to be at the Almanzo 100 this past weekend, you might have seen a flashy new shoe from Shimano. Well, new in the sense that it’s a limited edition version of the current XC5. Introduced as Shimano’s first mixed terrain, AKA gravel specific shoe, the XC5 was launched earlier this year.

However, now Shimano has introduced a flashy new version that will be limited to just 1,000 pairs worldwide. It will also be limited to IBDs or Independent Bike Shops as an exclusive item you won’t find online.
