Pearl Izumi X-Alp Enduro III Mountain Bike Shoes - Men'sis rated4.3684out of5by19.
Rated5out of5byfromGreat Shoe with adjustible stapsI'm a recreational rider who switches between a road and a hybrid bike and wanted to upgrade from toe clips to cycling shoes with cleats. I find these shoes to be very comfortable for riding and walking. The cleats are recessed into the sole and will not scratch the surface of the floor. I especially like the adjustable straps that ensure you get that just right feel. In my opinion there are no negatives with this shoe and I would recommend them to anyone.

Rated5out of5byfromTerrific shoes for road, mountain or CXI use these shoes on my CX bike around town, on roads or in the dirt. They are fantastic to walk in as they are not only lightweight and comfortable but the sole does a good job of preventing the cleat from clicking on most surfaces, plus they look like real shoes/sneakers. The adjustment system couldn't be easier and it's very easy to fine tune the fit. I think these make an excellent choice for someone looking for their first pair of clipless shoes, to someone upgrading from laces, all the way an avid rider looking to get the most bang for his/her buck.

Rated4out of5byfromFairly stiff but with a grippy tread.Wear Sidi most of the time, but they are very slippery in rock. The Enduros are not as stiff, but still stiff with good traction when I have to walk the bike up or down rock.

Rated4out of5byfromFair price for these shoesI shopped around and narrowed my choices. The shoes are light and comfortable and well ventilated for those warm weather riding.

Rated5out of5byfromPerfect Mountain Bike ShoesHighly adjustable for a perfect fit. Extremely comfortable, walkable. I use them with Shimano M530 SPD MTB pedals on my 29er and NO complaints. I haven't had to hike in mud yet, but my backpacking experience senses they'll do fine. Recently, on 15 rough road miles, I never thought of my feet and my socks were practically dry and it was 96 degrees out.

Rated5out of5byfromMade for walkinCompared to other shoes I have owned, these are the best for far. I use them for work purposes, riding about 10 miles a day. My job requires many mounting and dismounting of the bike. No issues clipping in and clipping out. They are a softer sole so standing for a long period of time does not take a toll on my feet. I gave the this shoe a 5 star rating because they are comfortable to walk in. They are too soft if you are a avid/hard rider. Cons, the adjustable ratchets are not tight enough for my liking. I had to double up the insoles for raise my foot in the shoe. Still a comfortable shoe with one or two inserts.

Rated5out of5byfromComfortable, great qualityBought these because the other Pearl Izumi's I had weren't very comfortable and made my toes go numb. These are definitely more suited for the individual with wider feet. Went for a 60 mile trek a couple days ago and had no issues with my feet whatsoever. Love the quick release straps
