    Favorite shoes? XC to light AM stuff...

    So, what shoes are on the "must consider" list these days? Lots of XC riding, recreational level racing, and "wannabe AM" stuff for the most part. I'm not overly concerned about cost, but I don't need a name brand just for the sake of having it (in other words, I'm looking for the most "bang for the buck").

    Thanks.

    Bought some Lake MX 225 a year ago, not the lightest but very durable, stiff soles and has excellent bottoms of some very sticky rubber that grips great on rocks for climbing those steep sections, hard to beat the price

    Bontager has a new very nice shoe out. I have also heard good things about Sidi. I just get some dominators from chainreactioncycles for 150.

    I have Sidi Giau Mega MTB Bike Shoes, and they are AWESOME! I have a hard time finding dress shoes that will fit me, cycling shoes are a whole 'nother story! I have WW feet and these get a huge thumbs up from me! Longest I have had them on was probably 4 hours and my feet felt fine afterwards!

    LAKE MX 165. Not a super light shoe but it has laces/straps, is wider than the usual ultra narrow cycling shoe and has a Vibram sole. They usually run around a 100 bucks.

    Truly a wealth of useless information.

    I think these'll be my first pair of MTB shoes.
    Slightly more flexible than hardcore MTB shoes for easy
    "pick up bike and run or walk" capability for the type of trail riding I like to do.
    Their discontinued I think, but I'll find a pair somewhere.

    And...I found them.
    Across the pond in England.
    But, they are on their way here.

    I have been eyeing up the Shimano AM50s. Performance has them on sale right now for $75. But my LBS doesn't have them and I'm hesitant on ordering online without trying them on.

    Yes, clipless. All of the bikes have Crank Brothers pedals of one variety or another.

    Time MXS Shoe

    I really like the shoe it is light and really durable not to mention that it is a lot cheaper than most shoes. Check out there is a review of it on www.mtbiking.ca. I like the shoe a lot but we all have different feet so take time and make sure you bring the socks you are going to wear when riding when you go try shoes on at you local shop.
