SH-XM9 Cycling Shoe
If you're lucky enough to be stocking up on gear for your next bikepacking trip or tour, Shimano's SH-MX9 Cycling Shoes make a strong case as the shoes you should take along with you on your adventures. Shimano constructs the SH-MX9 with a durable nubuck leather upper, backed by a reinforced rubber toe box and padded ankle cuff reminiscent of your most rugged pair of hiking shoes to withstand all of the rocks and trail debris you're likely to encounter.
Inside, Gore-Tex's breathable Performance Comfort lining means your feet stay completely dry while you're wearing the shoes in rainy or muddy trail conditions. Shimano adds EVA foam to the midsole to provide some shock-absorption as you're hiking or breaking down camp, while a half-length plate with a stiffness of three out of 12 on Shimano's stiffness scale accommodates two-bolt mountain cleats, lending the shoes their distinction as part hiking boot, part mountain bike shoe. Finally, the lugged Vibram outsole works to give you ample traction and stability as you walk with your bike along on aggressive trails.
