High function.

Striking a balance between XC lightness and enduro durability is no easy task, but Shimano is up to the challenge with its SH-ME7 Men's Cycling Shoes. They give all-mountain/enduro riders a lightweight option with ample protection and traction, without sacrificing responsiveness on the pedals.

The SH-M2E7 achieves its streamlined fit and consistent power transfer courtesy of its synthetic upper and stiff sole, which earns a rating of 8/12 on Shimano's stiffness index. Shimano also adds a protective panel over the shoe's speed lacing, with a ratchet buckle up top to put the final touch on its customized fit.

When you do start pedaling, a reinforced heel stabilizer holds your foot in place, ensuring you don't lose any power on challenging ascents, while the shoe's elevated, stretch-neoprene collar protects vulnerable ankle bones from errant debris. And for the times technical terrain necessitates a dismounting, the lugged rubber outsole provides reliable grip over rocks, roots, and pitchy traverses.

  • Blending XC lightness and enduro durability
  • Stiff sole efficiently transfers power
  • Grippy rubber outsole for hike-a-bike sections
  • Perforated synthetic upper comfortably ventilates
  • Speed lace and top buckle strap for highly adjustable fit
  • Compatible with two-bolt mountain bike cleats

Excellent shoes for mountain biking

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have taken these shoes on 75 miles of mountain biking over the last month and they are my favorite shoes for that and road biking too.

The simple cinch design on the top of the foot is slick and you can achieve a tight fit. The Velcro flap is great and the plastic shell over it shields the foot from water to some degree as well as debris like rocks, weeds, twigs etc on the trail.
I believe the size was true for Shimano. I have size 44 and consistently wear size 9.5.

The strap over the foot is one critical item which I believe makes this shoe perform. It keeps my foot right where I want it without squeezing it and the shoe is very easy and fast to remove. The gaiter on the back of the Achilles area is smart for keeping out debris on the trail.

When I realized how stiff the sole was I started wearing them on the road bike for workouts over 45 miles so far and during daily work commutes.

I really enjoy the Michelin soles as they feel comfortable and the sole is also good for walking in.

The long term abuse test is next and that takes at least a year.

Great shoe almost best all mountain shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great shoe glad I bought it. Only think to make it better would be to have two BOAs on it.

Awesome shoes!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Really comfortable and true to size. I have used fiveten shoes before and I also like them a lot but I think I prefer these on the comfortable side. So far I have not had any problems with them.

Initial impressions...will update

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Edit: I've now ridden them and love them.
I'm coming from Giro Terraduros and have some quick observations.
1. I got them because I'm tired of going on "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" in Moab on the features with slickrock if I put a foot down. I have yet to test it, but these seem to have a softer material on the sole which should grip well.
2. The sides pushed against my ankle bones. I wore them for a couple of hours around the house and that seemed to solve that issue as they quickly broke in. You could get slightly thicker insoles (I may get better ones anyway) and that would also take care of that issue to some extent. (After a ride, they're fine.)
3. I came from Terraduros, which require a spacer (such as what comes with Eggbeaters) to drop the cleat enough so that there is no rubbing on Shimano pedals. I have Shimano XT Trails, and with these, no spacer is needed.
4. Edit: They fit slightly larger than Terraduros. I wear a 43 Terraduro (tight) and these are about 1/4 inch longer in a 43, which is perfect.
5. The cleats can be slid further back on these, also. They come with red spacers. I put those in place from inside the shoe on the rear and then placed the inner plate as far back as it would go, with the spacer in place. That placed the cleat in a good spot to be close to the positioning you'd get with flats and made it easier to get the same spacing on each shoe.

Great shoe!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 13

Was looking for a little stiffer and higher ankle support mountain bike shoe.
Fits true to size, Works great for me.

So far so good

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

I have a pretty low volume foot, and these fit me pretty well. That being said, they do run large. I wear a size 9 street shoe, and ended up settling on a size 41 after the 42's were too big. The ME7's are definitely lighter / more breathable than the Giro Terraduro (low and mid). The sole is fairly stiff but they are still comfortable for walking / hike-a-bikes. Only one gripe: The neoprene cuff is great for keeping dirt out but it rubs my ankles and causes very mild discomfort. That should go away as the shoes break in. I'll update as I get some more time in them.

Almost everything I want in a bike shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Euro 45

The tread rubber is high friction and has grippy cleats for when walking on rough terrain is necessary. It's super easy to get in and out of these shoes and to adjust them to your feet. They ventilate well and do a good job of keeping mud, gravel, dust, &c. out of the shoes. They are fairly stiff, but have some forefoot rocker to make walking tolerable.

They are not especially light, but they're not crazy heavy either. You can't have everything . . . as usual.

I've been using these shoes for a month or so.

Supportive, stiff where you need it

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

I am totally in love with my Shimano SH-ME7's. They are incredibly light weight and breathable, stiff for great power transmission, but allows some lateral movement, paired with a pretty significant tread, so when you need to hike a bike it's not too much of a bummer.
The neoprene cuff on the back of the shoe is awesome for keeping stray rocks from landing inside, and keeps your heel super secure.
Did I already mention how breathable and lightweight these are? No more hot foot, and despite the light weight they are incredibly capable and fit for trail and enduro riding.

Great shoes

I have only had XC shoes in the past, I decided to give these a try with the new season. Im very impressed with the choice so far! They are extremely comfortable and they seem to be getting more comfortable as they break in! Sole is plenty stiff and I don't feel like I gave anything up as far as performance goes, the added protection will be a big plus!

Mountain Bike Shoe ~ used for Touring

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 46 exchanged for 47

I was looking for a shoe that I could use for my cross-country tour. I'm going ultra light and not carrying extra shoes. I needed something I could walk in and provide support / performance on the bike. The shoes are mated with Shimano XT trail pedals. The support is great. No hot spots or heal sag. The toe box is a bit roomier that my race shoes which is perfect for accommodating wool socks. The shoe walks like a hiking shoe with good flexibility and comfortable on and off the bike. I wasn't familiar with the lacing arrangement and was a bit apprehensive. I have to say it works great and lace cover is nice touch.

Great Build Quality, Slightly-Off Sizing

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 46

The build on these shoes is top notch, I have no complaints.

The reverse ratchet buckle solves a problem with past shoes. In the past, if you really ratcheted the straps down tight it would cause the material under the buckle to start "folding." This in turn would make unbuckling very difficult because it would change the angle of the lever. The more the shoes were broken in (and thus, the softer the material), the worse it would get.

I am going to say that this shoe runs slightly larger than my past Shimano 46s. I had a pair of SH-M089s in 46 and had to size down for these shoes.

Great Build Quality, Slightly-Off Sizing

Love these shoes!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 48

I picked these up after a few years in Giro Terraduros. Shimano has taken a very similar design to the terraduro and improved upon it. I love the neoprene bootie around the ankle to keep all the dirt and rocks out. I also love how the buckle has been reversed (which takes some getting used to) to help stop the shoe from getting jammed. The quicklace system also is a huge bonus in my book. I wear a size 13 and the 48 is perfect.

Does this shoe have the longer cleat mount holes like the Torbal shoe? I really love that. Finally can put my cleats where they belong.

These will have longer cleat mount holes as well!

Good Quality. Crank Arm Ankle Protection

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Size 46

I use Shimano MTB shoes in size 46 and these shoes fit just like my other Shimano shoes. Ample toe box, if looking for a tight, XC Race shoe, look elsewhere. I've been getting really sore inner ankles from crank arm knock and these protect them and do the trick. Stiff sole and good for some hike a bike. They have a neoprene gator that will keep the muck out. The buckle on these is on the tongue and the buckle strap is fixed to the lower shoe. Different and took some getting used to. The quick pull lower laces are GREAT and fit much better than my other XC style Shimano shoes with velcro. I like this quick pull laces much better than the velcro now. These shoes seem to fit great. The overall quality look is good. Not great, but good. They do seem like they are holding up well after half a dozen rides. I use them with the Crank Bros Mallet Enduro Pedals and they work great.

Great shoes

  • Fit: True to size

I've been very pleased with these shoes. I regularly ride with flat pedal shoes but switch to clips to race. Although I was suspect about shimano's claims about the "torbal" sole that allows you to shift and angle your feet similar to on flat pedals, the claim is true. These shoes finally give spds the benefits that I've found with crankbrothers pedals (the feel of flat pedal shoes) but with the reliability and greater ease of clipping out of spds. Would recommend these shoes to anyone that likes the foot positioning of flat pedal shoes.
