How accurate is the size chart?
I'm normally a 10 US, but a 43 in Nothwave (10.5) and the chart for this says that I should be a 44.5 (10 US)!

Read Chris Jones Review

100% agree with Chris Jones.

Additionally: I went with these over the next model down because I have a wide forefoot. With a couple of rides in the bag so far I can say that the additional width was worth the few extra bucks. Stiff, responsive, and the beefier velcro closures (over the SH-M087G) make these ride great.

I love 'em!

Just got done with about 5 miles of mountain biking and a 12 mile ride home. I had no heel slip and I probably could have gone another 17 miles in them, they were so comfy! I love them and would say they are completely worth the 150 if you're going to ride them regularly. They were nice and stiff for climbs but walking around during my lunch break was painless. They work pretty well with my CB Mallet 2s. These are my first clipless shoes and I love them!

Great for big feet

I needed a size 50 shoe so my options were limited. I paired them with Crank Bros Candy 2. SH-M161G shoes are very comfortable and well made. I know I'll get many miles out of them.

nice!

These shoes are very comfortable and light weight. I enjoy xc mt. biking and these shoes work perfect for me! I highly recommend these shoes.

Everything I was looking for

This shoe has been great for the first month I've been riding in them both as my daily commuter shoe and a few x-country treks in the Fells . They do run just a bit big in length as I'm a consistent 10.5 US in almost every sneaker/book make and this 45 is better with thicker socks for me, but good space for my wide foot up front. The hard rubber sneaker-like sole is perfect for when I have to walk around the city sidewalks in them, just wish they came with a cleat tool for when I'm not off road.
Great power transfer and good stiffness make these a very wanted upgrade from my old Specialized shoes.

Excellent Trail Riding Shoe!

I finally found a MTB shoe that offers some grip when you're off the bike. I can't understand why shoe designers make the majority of off road shoes with friggin' plastic cleats! Zero traction on rocks & wet surfaces. The rubber soles on these offer great traction.
These shoes are an excellent fit for medium volume feet. They cinch down very effectively with the ratchet mechanism & have a pretty stiff sole. Since I've got narrow feet, I use a set of relatively thick Superfeet insoles in mine - very comfy on multi-hour rides. They also have rubber "armor" on the sides to ward off damage from high speed impacts w/ roots & rocks.
I tried on a whole bunch of mtb shoes to replace my trusty old Nikes, and these were the right choice for me. A great all-around trail riding shoe - comfy, burly enough to last awhile, pretty breathable & excellent traction! Get some!
I'm a size 13 & a Euro 48 fit just right.

Do the shoes come with the special wrench...

Do the shoes come with the special wrench to remove/replace the toe spikes?

When I got my shoes I looked for it and didn't find it.

Responded on

Those are sold separately, but you may be able to improvise with a pair of pliers or crescent wrench.

Great value, better shoe

This is a killer do it all mtb shoe. You get stiffness with the carbon reinforced sole, optimal foot hold with the buckle, and great styling. You won't be disappointed!

Sweet Shoes

This is one sweet shoe. Sidi's are sweet too and I've owned a pair but I just don't love that plastic lugged sole? I bought these Shimano's because the have the sweet rubber soles like your hiking shoes. You can actually walk up rock gardens with these shoes rather than slip around with the plastic soles on other mountain shoes. These might be too heavy for the weight weenies but I appreciate the extra materials incase my feet slam up against rocks or roots. Just remove those toe spikes and you an all day bike and walk the the burrito joint shoe. Very comfy, highly recommend.

walking, hucking, rolling, and whip-skidding approved

I'm a messenger, and I needed a shoe that would be stiff enough for mashing hard, and hucking the salami through traffic, but comfortable, supportive, and ventilated enough to be worn around the clock, in and out of elevators, and on and off the pedals. With regards to all of these, the M161 completely ass-kills it. Love this shoe.

Enough said.

* usually wear a 10.5, and the 45 offers no surprises. very generous toebox makes the shoe feel deceptively larger than it actually is, despite being exactly as long as it needs to be

I would totally agree that the roomy toebox makes you feel like you have a bigger shoe than you need but the length is just right.

Carbon reinforced, but not so rigid that it inhibits walking. Durable and stiff rubber treads grip like a dream when it's time to dismount.

Mostly thin in the forefoot region, but plenty of arch support, and a beefy heel cup make this a great shoe for longer rides punctuated with periods of walking.

Shimano SH-M161G Mountain Bike Shoe

I bought this shoe for a few reasons 1- I have big feet and this is the nicest shoe Shimano makes in a 50. 2- It is very comfy and is better for those long hike-a-bike trails and 3- it was a lot of shoe for the money. It is very comfy and has been an awesome shoe. I have a very normal foot and it fits me great. It is a little on the heavy side but you don't really notice it once they are on. They are not the stiffest option out there but unless you are a save every watt racer or have legs that could power LA with a single pedal stroke, they will be stiff enough for you.

Responded on

So I have a summer of MTB on these and now a season of cyclocross with them. They were great to run in for cross. I ripped a derailleur off with half a lap to go one race so I threw the bike on my shoulder and ran the remaining 4-500 yards to the finish line. Try running with other shoes for that long and you will be miserable, these shoes were great in that aspect.

Excellent bike shoe in quality and price

Let me begin by saying I have normal feet. Not too wide, not too narrow, regular arches, etc. This Shimano fits my normal feet like a champ. These shoes feature a mid width toebox with ample wiggle room without the slop that can occur with shoes that are too roomy. Lightweight comfort and performance with no pressure points whatsoever, even on my first ride in them.

I very much like the carbon reinforced soleplate for extra response when really cranking. The top ratchet closure works very well and releases easily. I can't speak to the ventilation attributes as it's still springtime and not too hot, but there's plenty of mesh.

Finally I wear a size 10/10.5 street shoe and chose the size 44 which fits extremely well. My big to just brushes the end of the shoe and I'm glad I didn't size up or down.

Stiff shoes that deliver Comfort

These shoes are great on and off the bike those sections that are a little to hairy. They deliver great power to the pedals on your way over those hairy sections when you decide you are going to give it all you have.

seem great so far...

I got these shoes at a local shop because I needed them in a 50, and hucknroll only goes up to a 49. They're pretty nice. I had some Sidi's that I used to ride that were two sizes too small, so these are a dream. They have a last that has a roomier toebox, so your feet don't get cramped, and the buckles and velcro work like you'd expect them to. They're stiff shoes, yet they're comfortable. I got some insoles put into them to take up some of the volume, since I have a lower volume foot, but I find myself forgetting about the shoes while I ride. And that's good. You won't be disappointed- they seem to be well made, and I think I'll get some good use out of them.
