    I need to replace my Spec BG shoes but I’m not sure I want another pair of standard disco slippers so what do people recommend. I quite like the look of the Mavic Alpine XL but not sure if there’s something “better”.

    Fit is most important so if you’re happy with Specialized then try others in the range rather than finding out your new all singing shoes hurt your feet after a few miles.

    Spesh Rime is well worth a look.

    Have replaced my Rimes with these as found the Rimes too well ventilated / too much mesh for our trails (read muck)

    There were and maybe still are, some good deals on Shimano XC 50’s. They feel sturdier than the Spesh BG’s to me, stiff sole, good protection for an XC shoe and good weight, although not for winter gloop.

    These are they:

    Shimano AM45. Cheap, comfy and last ages.

    love my Mavic Alpine XL’s, kids think they look like storm trooper boots. Seem to work as cycling shoes too

    AM45’s are good if you don’t mind the weight/bulk, got mine for about £45.

    Always found Shimano shoes to be good – pick one you like the look / price of from their range (my spesh ones wore out really quickly by comparison).

    if your going to look at the more skate style shoes consider what pedals you are running. If they flex you will overhang small pedals more. I use 5.10 minaars on my Mallets but it’s back to the BG shoes for the candies.
