    Hit the trail.

    Enjoy a leisurely single track ride one day and bomb down the most technical trail in town the next with the Louis Garneau Montana XT3 Shoe. This shoe is as tough as it looks, with just enough ventilation to keep you cool and a removable Power Blade that lets you customize the stiffness to match the day's ride.

    Garneau made sure the Montana can get through times off the bike too. A rugged outsole with removable toe spikes gives lots of traction to scramble up steep inclines or shuffle down to refreshingly cool mountain streams during a mid-summer ride. A ratchet strap and two hook-and-loop closures work with Garneau's HRS-80 heel retention system to provide a comfy and secure fit, on and off the bike.

    Have questions about this product?

    Size isn't even close to what is claimed

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 48

    My husband is switching to larger shoes (currently wears a pair of size 46 Shimano MTB shoes) so I ordered him this shoe in a 48 as an Xmas gift. When he tried them on, they are SMALLER than his current shoes (by more than a size). Do all LG products run this tiny?

    not that great

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 43

    i found the sizing to run a little small (should have fit a 42 for size 9, but needed 43) so ended up with shoes a little bigger than i needed. toe box is quite wide, and causes you to pull down on strap to make snug. As a result, i have had some numbness and discomfort and had to back off on the fasteners while riding.
    not the most comfortable shoe. I have the specialized pro carbon and they fit like a slipper. I would have bought a better shoe if it was not my second pair.
    i would say it's a "value product" that is serviceable.

    Run wide and stretch some

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large

    I have ridden around 200 miles on these and honestly love them. But, if you are someone who really wants your shoe to be super snug , this might not be the shoe for you.

    Find myself getting close the the max velcro and ratchet strap. Hopefully I will not experience any more stretch on the system, but if I do I will probably order a new pair one size down. Yeah, I like them that much - comfy when riding, those sad hike a bike times and walking around the truck getting ready to roll.

    Good for wide feet

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    My husband has a fairly wide forefoot, and these are adequate for the job. His only complaint is that they either a little too wide, or the lugs are preventing him from adjusting his cleats enough. He gets a bit of rubbing on his XX1 cranks if his feet aren't 100 square to the pedals.

    Comfortable, stiff mt shoe for road bike

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    Wanted as stiff of a mt shoe as possible for road biking while on a budget (under $200 total for shoes and pedals). Went for mt shoes because I wanted walkability. I tried these on at my LBS and I'm happy I did because I would have ordered a size that would have been much too large for me using online calculations alone. First ride I cinched them up way too tight (I'm a skier) and my feet were cramped and unhappy. Second, longer ride I adjusted the ratchet strap first (since that's the one that really matters) then barely fastened the velcro straps and everything was much much better. I hardly noticed I was wearing them.

    Very comfortable, plenty stiff, highly recommended. I do, however, recommend trying shoes on at a shop before you buy these or any other cycling shoes, as feet are funny and getting the right fit matters most.

    Good three-season shoe

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    This is an outstanding, relatively lightweight shoe for spring, summer and fall. When the temperature drops below 50*, you, or at least I, need either a different shoe or a shoe cover. I chose the latter, as it is a cheaper alternative. Also, if your ride takes you through water on a consistent basis this might not be the shoe for you, as the top is just a thin mesh layer that water passes through with ease. To "mitigate" this, there is a plate on the bottom of the shoe you can remove which ostensibly is for water drainage, but the benefits are negligible. They are pretty good in hike-a-bike situations; not overly slick like some of the superlight shoes out there. Bottom line, I like the shoe, the performance is solid, it's good looking, and since I live in an area where winter comes and goes in a flash, it's the perfect shoe for me. Four stars for this one! BTW, $119 is a steal...

    Unanswered Question

    In Pearl Izumi mens MTB I wear 41.5 and have a little room. Women's trail shoes I wear 10. Never wear socks (eewww). What size would you recommend, 41 or 42?
