Your everyday trail shoe.
When creating its SH-M200 Shoes, Shimano sought to strike a balance between XC lightness and enduro aggro. The SH-M200 gives trail and all-mountain/enduro riders the traction and protection that they need around their feet on a hard ride without sacrificing responsiveness on the pedals. Shimano also offers the shoe in Wide width, so there's no need to cram your toes into too-narrow cages, spending your ride counting down the minutes until you can take them off.
The SH-M200 achieves a slim fit and consistent power transfer courtesy of its synthetic leather upper and carbon-injected nylon sole, which earns a stiffness rating of eight out of 12 on Shimano's stiffness index. Shimano also adds its Torbal (Torsional Balance) midsole to the SH-M200's to allow the foot to move more naturally during descents rather than keeping it locked in place completely, but the added flexibility doesn't impact the carbon-injected sole's ability to transfer power once you're pedaling again.
When you do start pedaling, a reinforced heel stabilizer helps to hold your foot in place, ensuring you don't lose any power on challenging ascents, while the shoe's asymmetrical collar protects the vulnerable inner ankles from bumps and bruises. For the times technical terrain necessitates a dismounting, the lugged rubber outsoles on the SH-M200's provide reliable grip until you can start pedaling again.

Extra Protection for Your Ankles
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 46
I got these shoes for a little extra protection and so far they have been great. They fit pretty true to size if you are used to Shimano sizing. I have not experienced any durability issues with the hours of use I have put them through. The non carbon sole is great if you have to hike a bike but still gives you that ample stiffness if you are looking to put down the power through the pedals.
Very comfortable durability issues
- Fit: True to size
Shoes are very comfortable however they lasted me a month before the toe started to come apart also inside ankle pad kept hitting my crank never had an issue before with my ankle bones hitting my cranks.
Thinking about getting these, but your size chart is confusing. I wear a 13US, and I thought 47 or 48EU was a 13US but the chart says a 48EU is 12.5US?
