    Anyone got an feedback on the Scott Team Boa shoes ?
    Do they fit true to size – performance, durability etc.

    I am looking for some new light XC shoes, that I can also use on road and CX. Any other suggestions up to about £140 max.

    Thanx

    I have the ‘Scott MTB Team Boa’ and I really like them. They’re a size 48 which is the same as I take with Spesh and Shimano. The fit is fairly wide which suits me well.

    I’ve had no issues with the boa though I keep meaning to order a spare (as they’re less than a tenner) just in case.

    I’ve not had mine too long (just under a year) but they seem well made and certainly are holding up so far though I have winter shoes for the colder months.

    Only thing to note is that they are quite shiny when new – that does fade a bit with use though.

    Thanks – although I prefer the less bling silver colourway

    It’s more that I have one to hand if it ever happens. They’re only £6 IIRC

    Be aware that Scott shoes have 3 different lasts,depends on intended use.
    They have the tightest last in their race shoes and a loosest last for their sport shoes.
    I have a Comp shoe (performance last) and a team boa shoe (racing fit)
    I cant wear anything but thin socks in the team shoe, I can wear thick ish socks in the comp. I also have a pair of Elite Boas (sport last) that I can wear mid+ weight sealskins
    Anyway, that team boa is nice and stiff. I now use them only as my road shoe, but I needed to grind out some sole to clear the axle on my CB quattros

    What about some specialized rimes at cyclestore for £59.99,got some myself they come up a size smaller so go up a size if you fancy a pair.

    The soles on the Spesh rimes look a bit chunky and heavy -are they ?

    As above, I have the Team Boa and wide feet. I find they fit me really well without causing me cramp which most other (narrower) shoes do so while the fit may be racy (I agree on this), that doesn’t mean they’re narrow, just that they don’t have lots of space for your foot to move up/down.

    The soles on the rimes are actually quite light i’d say the whole shoe weighs roughly the same as my shimano mo85’s if thats of any use
