Description

Description

With Shimano XC701 MTB shoes you have a comfortable shoe that you can use to get the best out of yourself! It guarantees optimal comfort and maximum performance.

Flexible, sturdy artificial leather with perforated ventilation holes for a perfect fit
This XC701 shoe is made of a very flexible synthetic leather, which guarantees an excellent fit. This provides high quality wearing comfort. The artificial leather also has perforated ventilation holes through which a cooling air flow can enter this cycling shoe. The chance of overheated feet is therefore minimal.

Two independent BOA L6 Dial fasteners for correct alignment
The two BOA L6 Dial rotary systems ensure quick and accurate adjustment. A simple twist on one of the two buttons is enough to make this MTB shoe a little tighter. In addition, BOA closures are easy and reliable to use, even when cycling.

The midsole is reinforced with carbon fiber and the outsole offers excellent grip
The midsole reinforced with carbon fiber is very stiff, which ensures good power transmission to the pedals. As a result, all your mountain bike efforts are converted to maximum speed and performance. The Michelin rubber pattern in the sole gives you the right balance between grip, durability and flexibility. This outsole also has a rough pattern, so you don't slip when you have to walk. If the conditions are very slippery you can put 18 mm studs under Shimano's XC701 mountain bike shoes.

In short, Shimano's XC701 MTB shoes work perfectly both on and off the bike.

Detailed description size in cm
To help you as best we can in choosing the right shoe size, we measured all shoes ourselves. All you have to do now is measure your own foot length and we will indicate which shoe size fits you best per brand. You can easily measure your foot by placing an A4 sheet on the floor against the wall. Stand with your foot on the paper with your heel against the wall. Draw a line next to your big toe (or the toe next to it if it's longer). Mark your other foot on the paper as well and then continue with the largest foot. Now measure this distance and you have your foot length in cm's! Please note: some suppliers have their own measurement system, which means that what is on the shoe box may differ from what we have measured.

The shoe size you need may vary per brand. This is because certain brands have a smaller or larger last. In addition, we have divided the shoes into narrow / medium / wide. Read all about this on our blog!

Amazingly comfy but super stiff shoes

This review is for the XC7 Shimano shoes but we also have the XC9's as a comparison. The XC7's pound for pound are on par with the XC9's same super stiff carbon sole and Michelin rubber sole - but the benefit is the rubber sole extends the full length of the sole unlike on the XC9's so lots more grip. The uppers make slipping them on like slippers with great boa placement and easy on and off system. Only difference we can see is the tongue setup on the 7's seem a little lower on the bridge of the foot but no issues on the first ride. These are not a narrow fit like some brands - Giro or Sidi so are a super fit out the box with no need for a wearing in period. Would we buy another pair? Without a doubt. 10/10

Best pair of Shimano’s I’ve ever had.

They look great and feel great on. The BOA fastening system is really good.

A great shoe

Great fit. Smooth tightening with the “loop” system. Rigid sole and remarkably light for a MTB shoe. Near perfect.

Cons

  • Only red and black
