Shimano's SH-ME701 Mountain Bike Shoes combine a lightweight XC frame with durable all-mountain protection. They feature a low profile, but still offer ample ankle protection. An elastic cuff allows full motion but prevents mud from getting in. The new ultra-low-profile reverse mounted buckles are tucked even further from obstacles and offer a secure fit. The insole has extra cushioning to keep them comfortable even on long rides, and the Michelin dual-density soul provides ample traction.

Kudos to Jenson USA's apparel/shoe return policy which allowed me to try on a few sizes. The GOOD: It seems like it can fit a range of foot shapes and works with a wide forefoot like mine (I do not have large ankles but heel-lift was minimal), the reverse buckle and cinch laces work well, the toe rand is beefy. The BAD: I tried on three different sizes and on each one, the tongue would cause discomfort by digging into the front of my ankle no matter how I had the ratchet adjusted (tight to loose). It's most noticeable when the foot is near the 9 o'clock pedaling position or if you're walking. I have never worn shoes that did that to me! A part of the tongue's edge has padding sewn in but didn't help. The tongue's material seems like it's too thick/stiff and/or the tongue is a bit too long. Wearing thicker socks didn't help. Photos of last year's version shows it's different. I really wanted this shoe to fit but will unfortunately need to return. Hope it works for others.
Excellent design, comfortable, good looks. Coming from a lifetime of Italian cycling shoes and Moto boots, I was a bit nervous about purchasing this Shimano shoe. Initial impression are positive, the fit was spot on at 48/13 size with a DeFeet wool cycling sock. Running Time ATAC MX pedals and the cleat engagement is perfect. Very pleased with this shoe.
Have been using the AM9 for the last few years. These are a noticeable upgrade from them. The boot and latch mechanism is awesome. If you have narrow feet, you may get some bunching of material in the toes, but it is not uncomfortable.
