Why We Like The Mallet Speedlace Mountain Bike Shoe

Blending rugged off-road performance with sleek, casual style, the Crank Brothers Mallet Speedlace Mountain Bike Shoe is ready to play in the mud before hitting the pavement for a post-ride brew with friends. These unassuming clip-in shoes pack all the necessary qualities for confidently hitting the turns and berms, yet remain comfortable at the trailhead when your ride ends and libations are in order. Features like the synthetic upper cushioned EVA midsole keep these kicks working hard for rides throughout the year, but the real winner is the match box design that's built to pair perfectly with Crank Brothers clipless pedal collections. Such a match made in heaven allows the Mallet Speedlace to shed mud and simplify entry and exit as you transition from pedaling to pushing your bike uphill. We're also stoked to find Crank Brothers' mid-friction rubber compound along the sole of the shoe, providing additional traction for optimal pedaling efficiency and grip when you're traversing roots and rocks.

Sold me on going clipless

I've put it through the wringer

I still may go with flats depending on the ride, but I've gone full-time (mostly) clipless because of these shoes. I could never get the right foot position and feel with other clipless shoes but the ability to slam the cleats back a little farther on these is all I needed. These put me the most confident descending position, and climbing too. I've paired these with long spindle Mallet-E pedals (with the pins run a little higher than how they ship) and the easy release, 6deg float cleats. I disagree on the size recommendation. I wear 11.5 shoes across the board (vans, nike) and the 11.5 in these is pretty spot on if not a touch on the small side. Not enough to size up. I swapped out the quick lace for traditional laces. I like to keep the forefoot area as loose and roomy as possible and that's harder to dial in with the quicklace or boa system since those are all about even tension/pressure. Flats are for sure more comfortable, but these are a close second when it comes to walking around.

Great Fit

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 8"

These shoes fit great, the heel hold is stellar and comfort is great. I have only been riding these on the trainer thus far, but the break in was pretty easy and painless. Cleat pocket mates up perfectly with all CB pedals. I am a true 8, and the size 8 was a hair big on me. I would say size down a .5 size if you are looking for a performance fit.
