Year after year, Shimano provides a great bang-for-your-buck with its shoe lineup, and this year's SH-XC30 Shoes are no exception. For under $100, you might even say that it's one of the best examples of that trademark Shimano value. And given the XC30's durability, refined fit, and surprising power transfer. Pair it with reliable SPD pedals, and you have a budget-saving package for taming singletrack and tarmac alike.

Shimano offers one of the widest ranges of shoe lasts (or shapes) in the industry. So to clarify, the SH-XC30 uses the Volume Performance last, making it wider in the toe-box and across the ball of the foot. This gives it a fit that emphasizes comfort and stability, while still allowing room for custom orthotics. The three Velcro straps provide ample security for your foot, and their offset positioning prevents unnatural pinching and pressure. Another advantage of an all-Velcro system, as opposed to a system incorporating a ratcheting buckle, is the modest weight savings. As admitted gram counters, we'd feel remiss not to point that out.

The XC30 Shoes have a fiberglass-reinforced, polyamide sole that's stiff, but still flexes enough for comfortable walking when you need to hike over hellish terrain or to stop into the local coffee shop. The upper is constructed of tough, stretch-resistant synthetic leather, and mesh inserts throughout provide plenty of breathability for hot summer rides.

The Shimano SH-XC30 Shoes are available in the color Black and in 17 whole sizes from 36.0 to 52.0.

Size is not fit, add one size up!

    I'm 36 years old and I live in Jordan. I ordered it to be delivered to me overseas, first look is OK, quality is fine, the red color is nice, but unfortunately size is not good, i usually buy 41.5, so as my friends told me to get it a little bit bigger, so i ordered the 42.

    When i first tried it, my toes hit the end of it and it was not comfortable to use.

    I think a bit bigger is OK, when you order one, pick the size you use and add 1 to it.

    cost of shipping might be close to the cost of the shoes itself, so i sadly will keep it and give it to anyone can use it.

    Shimano SH-XC30 Shoes

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

    I am 65 years old and never have had "cleated" shoes before. A friend of mine told me that riding would be much easier with these. I shopped the local bike shops for what would be a good match for my needs. The SH-XC30 shoes and SPD cleats are what I ordered and seem to be the perfect match for my needs. My order came much quicker that expected. Excellent !

    Good for the price!

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:Runs small

    I got these, ordered the 45 and had to return for the 46. I think they run a little small. Not much though, just a little too small. I really liked the shoe. However, after only four rides the fabric in the heal started to wear through and had a whole. I returned them and got a little better pair. If you have the money spend a little more, it will be worth it.

    Great all around mountain biking shoes

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

    I ride with these for about 2 hours 3 times a week and they have lasted near six months and are in pretty good shape. Some of the sole is starting to wear out from hiking and skidding but that is to be expected. Overall, you really can't go wrong with these shoes. They will last forever and have a nice rigid fiberglass sole for good power transfer.

    Excellent shoe

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I am using this shoe this winter and it is performing flawlessly. Mind you, this is my first pr of bike shoes. Since my purchase I've bought other shoes and still feel that these are less expensive but just as good. You can't go wrong with these.......
