Polish Rider wrote a review of Shimano SH-MP66W Mountain Bike Shoe - Men's on September 1, 2010
Ive been wearing these shoes for a couple of weeks now. I got them for trials riding because my weak and flexible Pumas werent cutting it.
When I first opened up the box and tried the shoes on, I thought to myself, shit, these look like clown shoes. They looked kind of bulky and very white with a sprinkling of ugliness. My first impressions of the performance of the shoes were mixed since I usually felt a sharp point against the top of each foot where the tongue of the shoes ended. I realized the only way to fix this was to either get used to the mild pain or simply not tighten the laces as much. Im now used to riding with a looser fitting shoe, but I do wish I could tighten these up more without having to deal with the mild pain. The shoes do provide a stable platform and offer good grip when paired with my Echo pedals. Also, now that the shoes have gotten scuffed up and a bit dirty, they look less like clown shoes. :-)
Shimano, if youre listening, stop making all white bike shoes and put more effort into style and looks.
