Eric Bluewrote a review of Shimano SH-ME7 Cycling Shoe - Men's on April 21, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have tried 7-8 different pair of mountain bike shoes over the past 5 years of various styles(from the more traditional MTB shoe to the 5-10 style). These are by far my favorite. Reason - perfect combination of traction for walking, adjustability and fit. The cinch laces are great and can get the shoe nice and tight, the lace cover is great, and I really like the "cuff" that provides a some protection around the ankle. Cleat adjust-ability is also nice. I have about 1500 miles on my first pair with no issues and I bought a second just in case they go out of stock or get discontinued. Primarily used for what I would call "aggressive" trail riding - all single track with lots of technical features - but not too much "hike a biking".
