Shimano SH-M088L Mountain Shoe
The SH-M088L mountain bike shoe will appeal to many types of cyclists: competitive riders, off-road enthusiasts, touring cyclists and fitness fanatics. It features: 2-hole mountain bike cleat mount. Tough, stretch-resistant synthetic leather and mesh Micro-adjust buckle and dual off-set straps for precise fit management. A snug, durable, breathable shoe which transfers power to the pedal and comfort to the foot for those long rides.
I bought these to replace a pair of Pearl Izumi shoes I have had for a number of years. I had read a few negative posts concerning the ratchet straps, but this shoe has been nothing but great. It fits and wears really well. The ventilation is excellent and it dries well when wet. The only real downside is I would not recommend it for colder weather use. I found myself with freezing toes during some of the colder rides this winter and for the first time bought a winter boot...should have done this sooner. I would definitely recommend these to anyone considering a new pair of mountain bike shoes.
