Monte up and ride.

There are enough hyper-specialized shoes out there that something as versatile as the Louis Garneau Monte MTB Women's Shoe is as welcome as a cool breeze on some hot summer singletrack. Designed for riders who love to get outside but aren't necessarily interested in racing, the Monte uses a high-density nylon sole to provide the perfect combination of flex, comfort, and stiffness. The synthetic leather upper is supple and durable, with mesh panels to increase breathability, and the ratcheting instep strap lets you dial in a precise fit without cutting off circulation or hurting your foot. Two additional hook-and-loop straps at the forefoot prevent side-to-side slop, and the removable footbed lets you customize the fit if you want to use your own insole. Garneau finished the Monte up with grippy rubber tread and reflective details to help you stay safe whether you're walking up a treacherous trail or pedaling home on the road.

comfortable shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

These are my first pair of mountain biking shoes. I bought a pair of Bontrager Evoke shoes at a bike shop but they weren't really comfortable so I returned them, and they had a limited selection of styles and sizes for women(what's new?) so didn't have anything else that would work. I live in a rural area so don't have a large selection of stores to go to without traveling a fair distance. I hesitate to order shoes on-line because I have a hard time finding any shoes that are comfortable but I decided to take a chance on these.
I wear a size 8 in street shoes but sometimes have to go up 1/2 size in tennis shoes and hiking shoes. The Louis Garneau sizing chart (from the Louis Garneau website) showed that an 8 = 39.5 european sizing. Backcountry didn't have a 39.5 available so I decided to try the 40. It's a good fit. It has a rounded toe box, which is good for my somewhat wide feet. The heel slips a little but that's pretty typical for shoes on my feet and I can tighten the ratchet, which takes care of that problem.
I read comments about the ratchet being difficult to undo, and it took me about 1/2 hour to figure it out. Once I did, I discovered that it's very easy. It would have been nice if the shoes had come with instructions on that. It was a little different that other ratchets I've seen.
I've only used the shoes twice but so far they're comfortable and functional.

Great overall shoe

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

Contrary to the other reviews I have read, my wife really enjoys these shoes. They are great for beginners, are comfortable with ample amounts of padding. Not too narrow throughout the whole shoe, they are a great fit for her normal to wider feet. Only downfall is the release can be tricky, making it awkward to get out of your shoes after a ride.

OK shoe, but not very comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these shoes for my wife to start learning to ride clipless pedals. They seem well made, but she complains that they aren't comfortable and dig into her feet.

Disappointed

I do not like these shoes at all. They fell cheaply made. I had the Shimano SH-WM62 Women's Shoes and loved these. The Shimano is really easy to get in and out of unlike the Louis Garneau/Monte MTB. The micro-adjust buckle is always getting caught on something when I take it off and I have to fight with it for a bit. The Shimano is really fluid and easy to take off and comfortable. The Louis Garneau is not comfortable. If you want a good shoe go with a shimano.
