The Shimano SH-M088 Shoes provides the streamlined shape and power transfer of traditional cross-country shoes, only with some added walk'ability and traction for traversing unruly terrain. After all, most aspiring mountain bikers have to cut their teeth on trail systems that're really just tenuously linked networks of boulder-strewn fall lines and deer trails. Shimano offers one of the widest ranges of shoe lasts (or shapes) in the industry. So, to clarify, the SH-M088 uses the Volume Plus last for a wider and more accommodating fit in the toe box, with a normal fit over the rest of the shoe. To secure the foot, the M088 uses the tried-and-true system of one micro-adjust buckle and two Velcro straps. The buckle can be mounted in two different positions, ensuring comfort whether you have a high or low instep. The Velcro straps over the forefoot are offset to prevent pinching and pressure. The M088 shoes have a fiberglass-reinforced, polyamide sole that's stiff, yet it flexes enough for comfortable walking. The durable rubber tread also provides plenty of traction for hikes over hellish terrain or to escort your beyond-trail-repair rig out of the woods. The upper is constructed of tough, stretch-resistant synthetic leather, and mesh inserts throughout provide plenty of breathability for hot summer rides.
