When you’re out on the trail, you want your gear to do everything you expect without having to think about it. Shimano’s XC31 mountain shoe does just that. Rely on it to efficiently send your pedal power to the drivetrain through a rigid fiberglass-reinforced sole, while its stretch-resistant synthetic upper protects your feet from the natural elements of the trail and calls on three hook-and-loop straps to keep you locked in. One of those straps is the Cross X Strap, thoughtfully designed to reduce pressure points when off the bike. And, for the times when you're on foot, you’ll appreciate the mud-shedding lugs for self-cleaning traction in all conditions. The sole also features a durable, carefully shaped arch pad that offers un-clipped stability for when you have to quickly get your foot back on a pedal but can’t clip in yet. With trail-savvy features and lightweight design, the XC31 is a great bet for cross-country riding in all types of conditions.
