I'm planning to get clipless MTB shoes.
Any advice of what i should get?

Currently thinking about these Scott Team BOA MTB Shoe : http://www.scott-sports.com/us/en/produ ... -Boa-Shoe/

or I should consider Shimano's?

Find them comfortable and efficient enough.

I use these - plenty of grip when pushing.

Thanks mate,

These look nice different from the standard design.

Why are you getting them?
Only reason i ask is i used to use them for everything and the only time i would say there was an advantage was when racing uphill, that said i did like the feeling of being attached sometimes.

What size are you? I have loads of pairs if its a case you just want to try it out? I'm a 9.5 if thats the case?

I've got those too. Don't like them because they are too flexible in the sole and absorb mud and water.

I had shimano AM45 but then gave up on clipless in favor of flat pedals and pair of AM41's.
But now with the new bike and planning to do some more racing next year I thought clipless might be better so I just want to have a pair of shoes and switch between as required. Personally I'm not big fan of clipless. Size 9 here.

I kept my clipless xpedo's so i got pedals :)
But I put the post mostly to get advise on good quality clipless shoes so i don't have to buy 3 pair until i get something decent :) What shoes you got i can try eventually?

Ordered some Mavic rush shoes last night as they get some good reviews. Found them pretty cheap £68 incl delivery if someone is interested.
