The Shimano SH AM45 Mountain Bike Shoe may look a little like a throwback to the moonboot era, but it'll give you the support and protection you need when you're railing the trails. The mid top uppers are constructed from synthetic leather, and there is no mesh to let sand and grit in. The last is Shimano's Volume, which provides more room in the toebox to eliminate pinching. On the outside, the outsole wraps up and around the toebox and uppers to provide additional protection from rough debris. The sole itself features a fiberglass reinforced polyamide soleplate with a rubber that grips your platform pedals. The SH AM45s are also compatible with SPD cleats for a more traditional trail feel.
