    Micro-adjustment MTB shoe with Vibram sole

    I am looking for a new shoe, as I am tired of slipping on rocks with my LGs. The LGs fit great, have a micro adjustment, are very stiff, but the sole of the shoe is hard plastic that makes rocks like ice.

    I like a firm sole and want a boa micro adjustment to get the just right fit on my foot. I wouldn't mind if there was some articulation in the toe for the hike-a-bike moments where I can't clear a technical steep, rocky climb, but I would prefer from the footpad back to be firm. Light weight is good too, but I would expect this anyways with the type of shoe I'm coming out of and looking to go into.

    Any recommendations?

    Sidi Spider. Soft lugs, replaceable lugs, Sidi's microadjust system.

    Hands down. No contest.

    Specialized Rime checks all your boxes I think. I liked the supple upper of the older model better but the new one isn't bad. Also check out the Sidi SD15. LAKE might have a model or two that would work for you, too. Boa is a great system-I'm a fan!

    I ordered up the SD15, since the LBS didn't stock it. Thanks for the help, all.
