    With Shimano backpedaling in the high-end MTXX shoe line, what's a guy to do?

    Pardon the pun.

    I really liked the MT70 shoes from Shimano. Snug fit, great heel cup, tight enough around the top to keep the dirt out, stiff, and Gore-Tex. So, I of course wore them out, and was dismayed to find out that the lesser MT60s had replaced them. Now, I'm wearing these, and except for the Gore-Tex and the stiffness, I really hate them. They're lower and the top is wide and dirt falls in, and the heel cup isn't worth a *****.

    Any suggestions? I'm a pretty aggressive trail rider and I need shoes that are at least water resistant and will suffice for a session of ad-hoc trail maintenance.
    Like half of everything I ride comes out of Jenson. Figure that out.

    What's wrong with Shimano MT71 ? Are they available in the US ?

    Looks like they are NOT available in the US. Explains my ignorance.
