Sette Epic Mountain Shoes w/ Buckle
The Sette Epic shoe re-writes the book when it comes to style, performance and comfort. Its aggressive cross-country racing design combined with several outstanding features make it the leader of the pack.
I've been riding these shoes for 4 years and about to hand them off to my son. They've been through Leadville, the Breck 50, Moab, Fruita and many more locations. Buckles and Velcro are holding strong, stitching starting to give a little. Bottomline, these are unbeatable for the price.
This shoe delivers on performance and quality while giving you a big bang for the buck. I will continue to buy Sette mtn shoes. Fantastic shoes. My first pair lasted four years.
I bought the Sette MTB shoes based on the price. They have been a good pair of shoes to own. A little on the heavy side which I expected. They also were a little larger than I expected. Not a full size but sort of in between where I'd fit more snug with a 2nd pair of socks on which isn't a problem in the fall/winter but not so good in the summer. They are well built and have held up well.
I have had the shoes for 3 seasons now and they have been excellent. They have held up pretty well. 1 star removed because they aren't perfect: While being a little better than my last pair of shoes, the traction is lacking for solid rock, slickrock in particular. The shoes lack the grip they really need for this type of surface. The quick release button gets stuck often and requires some working to unlatch. In addition, one of the plastic straps for the ratchet was bent on a recent ride and it is now difficult to unlatch even when the button is working.
$69,99 for 9 years of use. I bought mine 9 years a go and it was totally worth it. after 9 years of heavy use, the soles ripped off. Then came the time to buy a new one. So I gat de Sette Mountain Shoes again. Never saw a Mountain Shoe from the top brands last as much.
Bought these back in 2011. They're great shoes. Certainly have been tested in various conditions. I live in the north east where it can get very muddy and wet. Sure the straps have stretched a bit but that's why they're adjustable. I highly recommend them and for the price you can't go wrong.
I've been using these shoes since 2009 & and there still going strong. They are super light & for the price they can't be beat. If my current pair were to break down I would definitely buy again.
I bought these last year and they have lasted, fit great and still look new (with cleaning). Very easy to put on and remove. Using the front spikes helps in the loose stuff and on icy roads in the winter time.
This shoe was alright, but after 6 months of daily riding, the ratchet ladder has started to disintegrate and separate from the shoe. So now i've got this beast all duct taped up to try and hold the ladder on for as long as it can before it completely disintegrates. The ratchet itself doesn't hold up well to rocks, a few good bashes, and I have to struggle with getting the ratchet to release every time I ride now. Pretty bummed that I didn't even get a season out of these...
Great shoe to get into clippless. I have been wearing them for over 4 years now and they have held up well. Buckle is very adjustable so you always have the right amount of tension.
I've had these shoes for about 4 years now. They are awesome. Still going just as strong as the day I bought them. They are a little more narrow than other shoes but that worked out good for me. The buckle really makes them feel secure and after a few minutes on the bike you don't even know their on anymore.
I've had these shoes for over four years now and they are still going strong, even though they look pretty beat. They are just as good, or better than my Shimano shoes of similar construction. The fit is better than the narrow "Euro" style shoes, more roomy.
Really tough shoe, well built, I wear an 11.5 so I ordered a 46. The 46 was just a bit too big, so I ordered the 45 it was just a bit too small so beware of those in between spots shown on the sizing chart. Kept the 46s because I was just so impressed with the shoe and wanted to make them work. As a result they bite into the top of my ankle a bit. Real shame because they look good and are quality but they just aren't the best for me, hopefully they will break in to be more comfortable.
Ihave used them for more than five years and they still hold. They don't look like new but they hold. Good for summer or winter. I only change the type of socks i wear. A little bit heavy maybe because they are built to last. Had some performance bike shoes that lasted me only one year. Great deal for the money you pay.
Good shoes for the price. A good option fot a first pair For the price they gave me more than expected.
I have three seasons using this shoe and still like them. The shoes are a little on the heavy side, but are comfortable and stiff. I have had no trouble with the buckle or closures. The shoe is well made and takes a beating. I have abused my shoes a lot: water, mud, scraping on rocks & trees, sprinting through sand & gravel, swimming with them, etc. And they still look good and have no problems.
I rode with the same shoe for 10 years till the exploded. my buddy told me to check out the Sette Epic! he has been riding that shoe for 5 years now! I purchased this shoe 2 months ago and it is one of the best fitting and performing shoes I think I have ever worn. I wished Sette made a street shoe similar its that comfortable, I basically for the last 2 months when I am not wearing my Chacos I wear the Sette Epic!! Great price great performance and great comfort!! You need this shoe!!
The Epic Mtn shoes are great fitting and provide all day comfort. They are stiff and offer strong pedal power. The soles are a bit slick on rock and wet surfaces, but grippy in dry and dusty conditions. Great value and perform like upper end shoes. Durable!
These didn't have the wide toe box I was expecting. The Specialized shoes I'm used to fit much better. They are going back. Other than that they seem like a quality shoe.
These have been my favorite shoe so far. Tried specialized and shimano, and these lasted longer and were more comfortable . I used them for commuting to work (66 miles a week) and for all types of mountain biking. After 2years, one of buckles broke when i got hit by a car and was sent flying in the air. Now that im all healed up its time to get a new pair and start riding again.
Great MTB shoes, I’ve being riding in those shoes for a three month and find it very comfortable and breathable. Consider buy one size up, definitely would recommend it to a friend.
Hard to beat this shoe for the money! I had my shoes for six years before the left buckle strap tore. I continued to ride, ignoring the strap because the treads continued to hold up well under a lot of street riding. I like a stiffer sole and tread and these shoes are definitely stiff in that regard, so there is no flex at all. The toe and heel caps have protected the shoes from looking bad and the ratcheting top strap was a bonus for these shoes. Overall, I thought they were comfortable and were a nice step up from my original Nike Yuha Plus shoes. Size-wise, I think they are pretty true to size. My original Sette Epics were 44s, though I probably should have purchased the 45s for a little extra room in the toebox. I am considering another pair of these over a pair of Shimano M087s and have decided to give these shoes a five-star rating because of the features and durability. The old shoes still looked good even after the strap tore, which was disappointing. I didn't see that coming, but still feel the shoes, for the money, are a five-star purchase.
