Why We like The GR5 Mountain Bike Shoe
The Shimano GR5 Mountain Bike Shoe takes your flat-pedal game to any terrain. With zero cleat attachment real estate on the bottom of the proprietary rubber sole, you’ll have an optimum grip on flat pedals and easy walkability for hanging out with the crew post-ride. The sticky rubber outsole provides a tread pattern that works well with pins on the flat pedals for confident stability, as well as keeping you and your bike upright when you’ve got to put a foot down in the loose turns. Inside, the optimized shank plate provides plenty of rigidity for efficient power transfer between you and the pedal. An EVA midsole offers cushion to keep your foot comfortable on and off the bike, while the upper part of the shoe allows plenty of airflow to keep your foot from overheating. The easy lace-up style means you’ll also have uniform pressure, and can wear tight or loose.

My go to flat pedal shoes
- I've put it through the wringer
I have a wide foot and these are the only flat pedal MTB shoe that is actually shaped like a ?real?human foot. The toe box on these is wider than basically any other MTB flat pedal shoe on the market, believe me I tried them all on. Even Specialized highly praised 2FO roost. I wear a size 10 US in Chuck Taylors and got these in a size 45EU which is around a size 11 US. If you have a normal foot the sizing is probably dead on for you. These aren?t the stiffest shoe, but they aren?t soft by any means. The soles on mine are finally falling apart after two years of riding. The grip is great though no problems there. The shoes work great with my Kona Wah pedals and my Shimano XT wide pedals. They are definitely worth the coin I just wish there was more shoe options for wide footed riders.
