The Shimano ME5 and ME7 series’ are multi-condition, Trail/Enduro shoes that combine pedaling performance and off-the-bike grip.

Whether you’re looking for a race shoe or an all-rounder, SHIMANO’s ME7 and ME5 have you covered. The ME7 is Shimano’s elite racing shoe so, as you can expect, it comes with a healthy dose of feedback and studies gathered from athletes in 2019’s Enduro World Series rounds. The ME5 translates that racing technology into a shoe that’s at home under the foot of competitive and demanding riders looking for a different mix of pedaling stiffness, grip and comfort.

Shimano ME7 features:

  • A NEW MICHELIN® high-performance, dual-density rubber outsole to offer superior traction with unmatched durability, stability, and slip resistance
