    soft clipless shoe recommendation

    I run Shimano SPD pedals. I previously used a set of super-cheap Shimano shoes that I bought on clearance like eight years ago. This past summer I bought a pair of Lake hard-sole shoes. Pretty unimpressed. Two lugs have already torn off and the stitching is starting to come loose in several spots. And the toe bed is too narrow.

    Looking for a recommendation for a softer-soled trail shoe that's more comfortable and usable in hike-a-bike situations. Thanks.

    check out the specialized tahoe, i have been using it as an all around town/ touring/ light duty mtb shoe for about 8 months now and they have been great and really held up well

    I have been using the same pair of Cannondales since 2001, starting to wear out now but still very comfortable.

    Really? Interesting. I wear Oakley tactical boots at work and absolutely love them.
