Shimano Men’s SH-XC61 Performance Racing Mountain Bike Shoe

Shimano’s new SH-XC61 shoes are more than just a pile of numbers and letters. They’re an extremely versatile cross country shoe that can easily pull race duty or all-day, beer pace duty. At the core is Shimano’s Dynalast outsole, which is carbon fiber-reinforced for stiffness, which translates into both more power transferred to the pedals, as well as more comfort on long rides. Moving up from there, the synthetic leather upper conforms to your foot, but won’t stretch out over time, so you get the same dialed fit for the life of the shoes. The shoes close with a ratchet/hook-and-loop strap combo, which provides a combination of comfort and security, and the shoes are finished with a series of polyurethane traction lugs, which you’ll appreciate in those tricky hike-a-bike sections.

The sole has some missing rubber pieces and one of the red plastic…

I chose fit as expected, since a “hoped for” option wasn’t available. I am tough when it comes to finding shoes that fit, so I went to the “go to” bike shop in my region and tried on a bunch of shoes and zoomed in on the size, but the right size / model was not available and the prices were out to Pluto. Returning to the shop was not an option. Originally I thought that laces were the way to go and the hook/loop ratchet option was a recipe for premature failure. However, after a lot of looking…
