Rated 2 out of 5 by from High Quality Shoe but not without its flaws The shoes I received were one size too big for me, but since I REALLY wanted to try out my new clip less pedals and shrugged and laced them up. 15 minutes into the ride I realized that the laced were coming loose. I ended up tightening them repeatedly throughout, until the fastening clips popped off and tore the laces with it. Without velcro straps the lace simply don't stay. I'm tying them like regular shoes now but they aren't comfortable where the laces are tied due to the thin string. Overall this is a great looking, high quality bike shoes ultimately undone by its poorly thought out laces.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor lace design I like how the shoe feels, a great commuter shoe except for one major flaw. Lace design will break on you. Trying on a pair the lace system broke on me. I thought maybe it was just a bad pair, tried another and the lace system broke. If it wasn't for the laces I would give this shoe a 5 star. I have had the old MT42s for years and need to replace them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shimano MT44 Bike Shoes I had high hopes for these shoes even-though they looked kind of funky. Unfortunately, the Speed-lacing mechanism quality is very poor and the lace end cap came off as soon as I tried to lace up the first shoe and these were the 2nd pair I tried on. The first pair I had tried at the store had the same issue. I have a pair of Salomon hiking shoes with the similar lacing system and they work great. I would avoid these solely based on the zero durability of the lacing end caps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe! This is my first dedicated riding shoe, and to go with it I purchased the Shimano M530 SPD pedals. I am very pleased with these, the fit is excellent (I got the 47, which translates to a mens 13), very snug - just what you want when you're riding. My foot is somewhat wide and the toe box has plenty of room. I would recommend getting the SH-56 mulit-release cleats, the single-release (SH-51) makes me feel locked-in just a bit too much. You'll want to practice getting in and out of the pedals if this is going to be your first pair of cleated shoes+pedals, I fell over a few times just doing that. Out on the trail I've had a few emergency exits and fallen off a couple times, with the SH-56 it isn't a problem what-so-ever. Make sure you use a torque wrench when you tighten down the cleats, you risk breaking the shoe soles if you over-tighten them. If I had one complaint, it's that the retaining clips for the ends of the lace is not very secure, I pulled one off the very first day - it took a little while to reattach it. I don't believe it's meant to be pulled on when your snugging the lace up, just pull on the actual lace and you'll be just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for on road and Trails, no Problems. I bought the yellow and black pair about three months ago, i am 61 but still like a little color in my life. I ride two days a week app. 10 mile+, one day i use off road trails and one on paved trails, Plus me and my wife like to ride Rail- to trails. I have had no problems with the Laces,i always pull the laces to to take slack out of the them and let the plastic clips hold them in place. They seem to fit true to size. Feel good on and off the bike, and i can walk with my wife when we go on our trips.I bought Size 45, .5 larger than i wear to use, thicker socks in the Winter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Laces are for the birds The Shimano MT44 bike shoe are very versatile and easy to walk in, but for biking they failed. The Speed lacing system is difficult to tighten and will not stay tight causing multiple stops just to tighten down the shoes. I liked them otherwise but this flaw is too overwhelming to keep them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Laces are okay I have used these on and off for a year or so, and they work fine for an urban shoe. They are comfortable. The sole is flexible, which is good for walking about without the notable clip clopping or strange posture that accompanies a proper cycling shoe--the trade off is less than efficient cycling. And this is appropriate for its use: urban/commuter. I certainly would not use this shoe as either a proper mtb shoe or a road shoe. The lace issues people have may be due to user error (I'm picturing the classic infomercial decoy who can't use a chef's knife to mince a clove of garlic). Although I have had no trouble with the laces, I can still imagine, perhaps, a better system, and I would agree that it's not awesome. But, again, I don't expect them to fit as tight, be as stiff, or ride as well as my SiDis.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice shoes, but I expect a lot more Why only two stars? Pros: stylish--good looking comfortable Cons: Lace durability Here is the biggest issue--this is SHIMANO. They have been making bike parts for over a half century. Their SPD pedals have been around for 25 + years. So how come they can't figure out how to make their own cleats in their own shoe not scrape across concrete? Totally unacceptable.
