The shoe should come pre-assembled. You will have to mount cleats on the bottom; these will typically come with the pedals that you purchase for your bike. You will need an allen wrench (hex key) to tighten the cleats to the base of the shoe. Ask your bike shop if the cleats you have will fit the shoe that you have. If not, you will need to get an adapter from the shop or manufacturer or switch to a different pedal/cleat that is compatible with your shoes.
Hope this helps!Source(s): Personal experience.

Previous answer was pretty damn good, only thing I can think to add that might help is that if you have purchased a new shoe it will often have a rubber cap on the sole covering the bolt holes, this will need to be cut slightly or simply pulled out (Plyers).
Also to access the bolt holes on the inside so you can place washers inside (Or whatever is provided), you will need to remove the insole of the shoe.
Hope this helps and good luck.
