SH-MW701 Cycling Shoe
While most of your riding group starts complaining about the encroaching winter sometime around the end of October, you don't let cold temps and challenging precipitation get in the way of your riding, regardless of whether your vehicle of choice is a fat bike or an enduro rig. Late fall is mild by your standards, and when the snow, ice, and freezing rain arrive for good, you reach for something like the Shimano men's SH-MW7 Mountain Bike Shoes to protect your feet while you ride.
Shimano starts by shaping the uppers with synthetic leather then adding an inner Gore-Tex Insulated Comfort Liner to block out snow and rain. A high-cut cover and fleece-lined insole work with the liner to keep your feet warm, and you're able to achieve a slim, contoured fit with the SH-MW7's speed-lacing closure.
The Torbal mid-sole and a multi-density rubber outsole combine to earn a five on Shimano's stiffness index, equipping the shoes for high-speed, flowy descents by allowing the soles to flex sideways in the back while remaining stiff in the front, anticipating lateral movement and body english while barreling around slick corners.

Do you know how well these will shed snow and ice? Can be an issue when trying to clip in when snow build up on the cleat area Thanks!

These shoes will shed ice and snow decently although they're not a true winter shoe - they're designed more for the shoulder seasons. The GoreTex liner will keep most snow out though and the insulation adds some warmth. I'd recommend using a Crank Bros or Time ATAC cleat which clear snow and ice better than Shimano SPDs.
