Adventure seekers rejoice! Shimano’s XM9 cross-mountain cycling shoe has everything your foot needs for anything the mountain throws at you, both on and off the bike. It's built with a rugged, natural leather upper with a reinforced rubber toe box to keep your foot protected from rocks, and a breathable Gore-Tex liner delivers legendary protection from the elements. The XM9's extended collar eliminates the need for gaiters, sealing around the top of your ankle to keep out mud, snow, and trail debris. A lace/trail-strap combination lets you dial in a great, highly walkable fit while ensuring you don’t waste precious pedaling power. You also get outstanding off-bike traction and stability thanks to an aggressive Vibram hiking outsole that excels on a variety of natural surfaces. And, the XM9’s half-length shank plate transfers your pedaling force efficiently, but still allows comfortable, controlled walkability, making these shoes incredibly versatile with no compromise to function. Start off your next adventure right with a pair of XM9s on your feet.
