World Cup slippers.
World Cup racers and weekend warriors prepare yourselves -- the Mavic Fury Shoe brings the proverbial gun to the knife fight. If your aim is to push on the pedals with furious vengeance, then the Fury is the shoe to wear. There is no substitute for efficient power transfer.
The Fury delivers unparalleled stiffness with its full carbon Energy Grip sole. Everyone knows that full power is best applied in circles. For that reason, the heel counter has been redesigned with carbon fiber to replace the previous nylon and has a new shape to more effectively hold the heel on extreme pedaling efforts. There is an injected TPU Energy Frame that helps maintain the upper's shape and safeguard it from unwanted stretch. The heavily lugged Contagrip outsole provides excellent traction during cyclocross events or heaven forbid, a hike-a-bike section on the trail. Removable toe spikes make it stick like glue to grassy run-ups. Ever had a toe stubbed on a flying cobble ejected from the front wheel? A lightweight nylon toe cap adds scuff protection for the shoe and acts as a shield for delicate toes.
The uppers on the Mavic Fury shoe lack stitched seams to avoid pressure points. The bonded joints are strong and secure, yet lay imperceptibly flat and smooth for all day comfort. There is a ratcheting buckle strap at the top of the tongue to ensure stability. The forefoot also features two Ergo straps that have a Velcro closure and are secured via Kevlar cables. The cables thread through alloy eyelets and are adjustable to account for differences in foot volume. The tongue of the shoe is made of Mavic's 3d mesh. It is an open-cell mesh foam for comfort and breathability. The 3D insole features gel inserts at the heel and toes to make it extra comfy and absorb vibration. To keep things fresh, the insole also has an anti-microbial treatment.
If stiffness, secure fit, and lightweight are of top priority, the Mavic Fury shoe fits the bill. They come with a mesh shoe bag. They are available in Black in sizes 7 - 12.5. The Fury weighs 350 grams.

Several thousand miles later....
This is how they look after a season of use and abuse. They surprisingly kept their fit and sole stiffness.
Carbon for the sole
Lightweight and incredibly ventilated. Sticky lugs grab the rock. Not great for walking due to the very stiff sole
Picked these up for a killer deal on chainlove and couldn't be happier. Sizing chart seems to be pretty accurate for my size. Excellent quality shoe and super comfy. Only ridden with them once and I'm sure they'll just get better and better as they form to my foot. My only complaint is the ratchet strap slips when tightening it down. Haven't had it slip after it is locked in place, just while I am ratcheting it. We'll see if it gets worse or better with time. I guess it is better to have it slip instead of stripping the teeth off the strap (like my old Diadora road shoes did).
quick review on sizing and quality
I just got these on a killer deal at bonktown- not sure if I am going to keep them because of the sizing but I hope they do fit. Thought I'd write a quick review for those considering them:
sizing: length feels true- I'm a dead one 11 1/2 and the fit is fine. The toebox is pointy and a bit narrow- I've always worn and liked Shimano shoes and these are definitely tighter around the toes. I'll have to wear them around the house a bit more before I decided whether to keep them. I've tried them both with the original insole (meh) and my Sole insoles. If you have wide feet forget about it.
quality: these shoes are SWEET- super light, non flexy (carbon sole)- doubt they would work well if you spend time hike a biking, great attention to details.
I'll update if I decide to keep them. I have to give them 5 stars at this point as I can't see deducting a star just because my feet don't work with them.
Fury provides Pedal Power to the People
I was in need of replacing my MTB shoes, one of the most important and critical connections to your bike. I was conflicted between the Mavic (Addidas) and the Sidi Dragon. Four weeks ago I received the Mavic Fury and began riding/racing in them. Hesitant to head out the door and train for extended periods on new gear I spent a week riding the shoe on local fire and power line roads, experiencing pleasure with each ride. The shoe is incredibly stiff thus transferring your pedal stroke to accelerating the bike. It is also amazingly light as it is designed without any gimmicks, designed to just pedal. I have since raced the shoe at the Mohican NUE 100 race, an 8 hour race, and a short under 2 hour XC race. The only adjustment I have made is getting rid of the come with insoles and putting my orthotics into the shoe (this really helped my high arch). The insoles that came with the shoe were too flat for my insole and took up too much volume in my heel. The shoe has performed flawlessy, and cleans up easily from some muddy racing conditions. The inside of the shoe is no nonsense minimal and is made of one piece of material leaving no seams to rub my crank arms are get caught up with debris. The toe box fits my wide toe girth well. Although the shoe has a pointed tip with space that I don't use, I am hoping this will just help with air circulation as the summer temps go up. The counter heel cup really holds my narrow heel into the shoe well while the ratcheting strap lends itself to good micro adjustment. The sole is carbon fiber with a really nice tacky rubber lug glued on top. Even though tacky, the rubber seems to be very durable so far. This shoe is super stiff, if you hike your bike alot, this is not the shoe for you (imagine blisters on your heels from prolonged hiking)
Overall this shoe is going to turn out to be one of the best shoes I have worn, Stiff, light, excellent fit, durable. These things make my feet happy.
One Comfortable Shoe
Bought this Mavic Fury (US size 12) even though it was a more expensive shoe than I planned to purchase. The other brands I tried and returned were not nearly as comfortable as this shoe. The fit is perfect with a ample toe box, something I need. Easy to get in an out of as well. I use it with Speedplay Frog pedals, and all worked well together. I recommend this shoe.
My Fav MTB Shoe
Freaking Awesome. Super comfortable MTB shoe. I wore them in the Leadville 100 race last year and couldn't have been happier! Its only shoe I'll be putting on again this year.
