Tie your shoes.
Now that laces are back in a big way, Scott believes roadies shouldn't get to have all the fun. Whether you race on smooth singletrack or run your kicks up stairs and through sand pits, you'll enjoy fast power transfer and a secure, adaptable fit with the Scott MTB RC Lace Shoe. This lightweight shoe adapts equally well to the rigors of XC rides or 'cross races, using laser-cut microfiber uppers cut in an asymmetrical pattern to provide a contoured, wrap-like fit around your foot that stays glued in place during a race.
Racing's a sweaty venture, so Scott also integrates breathable mesh along the shoe's uppers to keep air moving while you grind it out. Inside the shoe, Scott's adjustable ErgoLogic footbed makes an appearance as well, allowing you to fine-tune the arch support the shoe gives you, or remove it entirely if you prefer. Tasked with delivering your hard-won watts to the pedals, the HMX carbon fiber outsole provides uncompromising stiffness and rigidity when you can't afford to waste energy. While it doesn't suit the shoe as well to long trail rides and hike-a-bikes, the carbon fiber sole is exactly what you want on your side when you're two laps from the finish and can feel your energy waning heading into a brutal climb.

I struggle with shoes. I have a wide forefoot but not really a high volume shoe. I have generally gone with GIRO HV shoes but they've never been quite right. These fit me perfect. They accommodate my forefoot and provide a great fit. The lace up looks sharp as well. The rubber soles provide security on hike a bikes or rough terrain if needed. Durability seems good so far.

as a back note, I have owned several pairs of the Giro Empire road and mountain shoe, but got a pair of these and fell in love! The asymmetrical lacing is great and alleviates pressure points on the top of the foot that i would struggle with in other lace up shoes. The rubber sole is great for walking in off the bike, but it is still as stiff as any other XC shoe I have owned. Plus the Lace styling looks rad. absolutely recommend!
