Both Red, Force, Rival, S900 and S300 comes in 177.5 mm according to their own website, but only Rival and S300 also comes in 180 mm:

Shimano does gold for Marianne Vos

Shimano is now getting into the custom footwear game for its key athletes with a pair of gold-hued SH-R300 road shoes for Dutch rider Marianne Vos (DSB Bank) who took home the gold medal in the points race at this year's Olympics. Save for the gold finish, Vos' special shoes are standard issue SH-R300s, complete with Shimano's Custom Fit heat-moldable upper and hollow carbon outsole.

Though still extraordinarily young at just 21 years of age, Vos' latest achievement is only the latest in an extraordinary string of successes. Vos is also the current UCI world champion in the points race, was both the UCI road and ‘cross world champion in 2006, and holds more European and Dutch national titles than we care to count.

"These gold road shoes are a reminder of a great race in Beijing," said Vos in a press release. "I hope to get some extra morale!"

I'll surely second that.
Lets leave the the custom footwork to the Italians!
Sidi can do it as Sammy's white and gold Sidis are outrageously sick!

I thought Liquigas was on LOOK Keos but Basso seems to use SPEEDPLAYs?

Well, maybe it helps to be a star... :D
