Shimano ME502 Review – An all round trail riding shoe?

by 0

Updated for 2021, The Shimano ME502 (or ME5 for short) can be found nestled in Shimano’s Enduro/Trail category along with the ME7 Enduro shoe, and their more insulated winter counterparts. They’re a visibly less beefy shoe than the race focussed ME7, designed as they are for all round trail riding rather than competition. They still promise good pedalling performance though and I was keen to try a lighter, less aggressive shoe than I’ve been riding in recent years, so opted for these over the ME7.
