- Anyone recommend me a tough SPD shoe fit for hike a bike?
I’m looking for a tough SPD shoe, something that’s reasonably stiff but has a good sole for the odd bit of hike a bike and generally trail riding. I quite like the look of the Mavic Alpine XL, has anyone got any other recommendations?
My newish pair of Diadora X-trails died in three months, so looking for something a bit tougher.Posted 6 years agomoridinbgMember
Five Ten Maltese Falcon. Much unlike the rest of the 5.10 offerings, it’s not a sneaker, but a tough boot, with stiff sole, which is good for long walking climbing. Plenty of grip to the ground when walking, apart from the area around the cleats, of course.Posted 6 years ago
The only downside is that it’s not vented much. May be it’s so that you won’t get water inside, which rarely happens, but once in it’s hard to get it out…igmSubscriber
I’ve still got the original Shimano mt90 – the boot that will not die. They are certainly tough, but also comfortable and probably the spd footwear of choice 80% of the time. In truly subzero temperatures my Northwave Celsius Arctic are a better bet and on sweaty summer days mt086 shoes get a run out, but the rest of the time they are spot on.Posted 6 years ago
Pair them with a caged spd pedal for preference (Time Z Control for me, though they are fine with Time Atac)
