From XC to DH the new ME500 shoe from Shimano can handle it all with ease.
Lighter than DH shoes and providing better ventilation, these shoes will be more comfortable on longer rides. They feature a durable rubber outsole that provides traction when you are off the bike, while the reinforced shank still allows excellent power transfer to the pedals. If you enjoy rowdy trail rides or just want one shoe for all disciplines, the ME500 will be an excellent choice.

How do I decide what type of shoe is best for me?
