SH-ME4 Mountain Bike Shoe

Built for high performance at a high value, the SH-ME4 Mountain Bike Shoe packs technical features and durability into a shoe that's ready to dominate the trail. Whether it's long miles in the backcountry, quick laps on your local trails, or dabbling in enduro racing, the ME4 is tough enough for any off-road undertakings while remaining friendly on the wallet.

The shoe is constructed from a high-density synthetic leather upper that is comfortable against your foot and withstands repeated scrapes from rocks and other trail obstacles. The upper is also perforated to ensure your foot doesn't get too warm when you're spinning up a tough climb. The closure uses a Boa dial for quick and precise micro-adjustments, paired with offset hook-and-loop straps that relieve tension at the highest part of the foot, avoiding pressure points and numbness. Frankly, we're impressed to see a Boa closure at this price point.

Moving to the bottom of the shoe, a glass fiber reinforced midsole rates at a five on Shimano's stiffness scale. It gives you efficient power transfer to the pedals, but also allows some torsional flex between the heel and toe box for comfort when you're throwing your bike into corners and navigating tricky descents. The lightweight rubber outsole offers traction on all surfaces, and features a wide cleat adjustment range of +10mm fore and -13mm aft so you can dial in the perfect position for your 2-bolt cleats.

Stylish MTB Shoe

Fit guide said EU 47 for US 12. The EU 47s are just a slightly bit large for my narrow US 12 foot. I think with a sole insert from a drug store will do the trick; therefore I did not return. Shoes are easy to get into and walk about in.

Good entry level shoe

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I’m a flats rider. From my singlespeed, full suspension, and fat bike. I feel I’ve plateaued a little on my riding ability, and I figured I’d give the clipless setup a try. These shoes fit perfect for a wild guess on sizing based on a street shoe size. I typically wear a size 9, sometimes size 8.5. I went with the size 43 in this shoe based on my normal footwear sizing. I can’t speak to longevity, or high mileage comfort, but overall I’m happy with the purchase.

High Quality Intro Shoe Into Clipless

I've put it through the wringer

This shoe does it all really well, and is a great option for someone looking for a legitimate shoe to compliment their first clipless mtb setup. Although this shoe rocks for beginners through really aggressive riders, the quality to price scale is really high with the ME4, making it a great option for a serious rider who's not looking to break the bank. The synthetic upper drys more quickly than natural materials, and the upper boa closure system keeps the shoe light while ensuring a solid fit. I wasn't super keen on the boa closure system initially, but after a handful of wet slushy rides, I can say that minimizing laces and velcro is a major plus. Overall, a solid shoe at a pretty reasonable price.

How did it fit? True to size or small or large? Thanks!
