Shimano MT43G Mountain Shoe
The MT43G bike shoe is designed for recreational on and off road cycling. EVA midsole and rubber sole enhance pedaling efficiency and walking comfort.
Light, well vented, great traction if you have to hike your bike on wet and dry surfaces. True to size, durable, stiff sole for pedaling but enough flex to walk in. I prefer these over my carbon fiber tymes mtb shoe.
I loved this shoe, but it runs 1/2 size larger than labeled. After 3 hike a bikes, I had to sell as used on EBAY. They are slightly too long and my heel pretty much comes out on every step. Otherwise, I found these to be very comfortable, and the tread is nice and sticky not hard plastic, which is a great quality for hiking. Inner sole is plenty stiff for efficiency. 3/23/14
They are a little heavy, but the construction quality is good enough for daily use, and they are really comfortable too. I think they are a great for its intended purpose, I use them for everything, trail or city riding and they have work perfectly. BTW, I use them with Crank Brothers Candy 3, and haven't had any problems with the cleats. also, I normally wear shoes size 9.5 or 10, I bought them size 44 which are supposedly a 9.7 and the fit well, perhaps a tad larger.
