Shimano SH-XC90 Mountain Shoes

The Shimano SH-XC90 Mountain shoe is their latest and greatest Flagship model in the mountain line. Like all of Shimano's upper end models, the upper and insole are fully heat moldable for a truly custom fit. Turn the XC90 over to reveal and all new sole that borders on a work of art. It features a very minimal use of lugs to drastically reduce weight and increase mud-clearing capabilities as there is much less surface area for mud to adhere.

The XC90 comes with low profile toe spikes - Shimano offers more aggressive spikes available separately. The multi-layer carbon sole is beautiful to look and very stiff for efficient power transfer. A separate ultra-rigid carbon layer encompasses the front of the shoe to take stiffness to the next level.

A familiar Rovenica upper provides a softness along with an extreme durability that only this advanced ultra-fine synthetic material can provide. A low-profile ratcheting buckle provides a precise closure tension. An improvement over the M315 are offset straps that wrap around the foot more effectively than two straps oriented in the same direction.


  • Heat moldable Custom-fit Technology
  • Rovenica® ultra-fine fiber synthetic leather
  • Multi-layered moisture control mesh
  • Anti-slip heel lining
  • Low-profile micro-adjust buckles
  • Ultra-stiff carbon fiber midsole shank and outsole plate
  • Mud-shedding polyurethane outsole lugs
  • Low-profile design spike plugs, with optional metal toe spikes for increased traction

These shoes fit great out of the box, but for best results have them heat molded and vacuum-fitted at an Authorized Shimano footwear dealer. We offer a free Custom Fit for shoes purchased in our Boulder, Colorado showroom by appointment (the process takes about 30 minutes). Vacuum-fitting may incur an additional charge at your local Authorized Shimano footwear dealer.

These shoes fit like a glove right out of the box. Much more comfortable than my sidi drakos. Went down 1/2 size from the recommended shimano size guide. Perfect fit and excellent quality. Excel Sports even shipped same day, and had great customer service.

Pros: Fit, Carbon sole is very thought out,

Cons: Way too comfortable, might replace my work shoes:)
