Grip the trail.
If you're looking for race-worthy mountain hooves that won't send your bank account crying into a corner, look no further than the Scott Men's Elite BOA Shoes. Though they feature top-end touches like BOA closures and breathable uppers, these shoes trade out the carbon soles found in Scott's most expensive shoes for nylon with fiberglass reinforcement that sacrifices a tiny bit of stiffness to save a heap of cash.
Scott fashions the Elite BOA's upper from a mix of microfiber and 3D nylon for a supportive yet breathable fit to keep feet comfortable and dry. A BOA closure system spans the top and midfoot of the shoe, with a hook-and-loop strap across the forefoot for quick adjustments on the fly. Inside you'll find Scott's Adjustable ErgoLogic removable insole with a customizable arch for additional tweaks to the fit.
Underfoot, Scott incorporates a lugged, Sticki rubber outsole for excellent grip during hike-a-bike situations, and threading for two toe spikes provides options for additional traction for easier navigation of muddy trails or steep inclines.

- Q & A
Excellent, but fit off for me
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
I wanted to like this shoe. The construction is top notch and the boa system is cool, but ultimately had to return because of fit. The ankle area was too high and too far back for me due to the boa spool and cut into my ankle bones. Excellent shoe if it fits.
