The Shimano SH-XC5's are a versatile pair of lace-up mountain bike shoes, designed to perform, whether that means XC single track, CX, gravel road, or urban commuting. Featuring a durable synthetic leather upper, the XC5's provide a snug fit, while the ventilated micro-perforations provide ample breathability. A lightweight carbon fiber reinforced insole allows these shoes to stay stiff without additional weight, while the Michelin high-traction rubber sheds mud and digs in, whether it's crossing a mossy log crossing or a slick, muddy trail. The lace-up closure provides a reliable, customizable fit that's reinforced with a mini power-strap for a secure fit with additional comfort-enhancing support.

The Shimano SH-XC5 MTB Shoes are compatible with 2-bolt pedal systems.

Good gravel shoe

I've been using these shoes just under two months now. So far, so good. The fit is true to size in both the length and the width. They come with two different pair of laces, one grey pair and another orange pair. The Michelin outsole feels solid and has good traction. You can put a couple of small studs upfront if you want (not included). Two small quibbles...the laces are longer than they need to be, but there is an elastic strap to tuck them into to keep them from getting in your chain rings. They initially were a bit loose in the heel when I laced them, but doing a loop trick in the top two eyelets snugged that up just fine. Not sure yet how they will wear in terms of durability. If they hold up, I would give them 5 stars. The shoe is surprisingly stiff. I am using them on drop bar bikes with Shimano mtn pedals. They do come in two color options black and grey.

Good all-rounder

I've had these shoes about a week now. Wanted to go with laces because I've had buckle shoes fail a couple of times and replacement buckles are expensive. This shoe is stiff, with a carbon plate under the cleat area. It doesn't lace down quite as snug as a buckle or boa system does, but I'm not using them to race. You can add a couple of studs up front if you like the traction (not included). They did come with an extra pair of laces. The elastic lace holder seems to do its job well and I've not had the laces fall out or come loose. I wear a size 12 and the Japanese size 47 that converts to an 11.8 in US sizing fits fine with a little bit of extra room for a cold-weather sock. The Michelin outsole appears to be sturdy and fairly grippy, yet comfortable for walking around too. I will use this shoe for road miles, trail miles, and commuting as well. I got the black for the retro lace-up look, but the grey looks good too. The tongue could have been another 14 to 12 longer if I really look for something I'd like to change about them.

Excellent fit, quality all-around shoe

Fit perfectly using the sizing guide. Excellent traction on various terrain. It will probably become my one shoe style for roadcrossgravel. Only four stars because I cant speak to durability.
