Fizik Vento Overcurve X3

This product was recommended by Bryan Ray from The Biking Apex

I have a wide foot and I tried a lot of other shoes that hurt my feet. I gave this shoe a try and loved it. It’s comfortable and works great for long-distance mountain biking.

Mallet BOA®

This product was recommended by Mike Joseph from The Cyclist Review

The BOA lace up system is made up of wires, not traditional laces. This wire system has a rotating button which allows you to tighten the laces all in one go, instead of messing around with laces trying to get a uniform tension. They are also super light too. I own a pair of these and they are my favorite clip in MTB shoes.

Five Ten Men’s Freerider DLX Mountain Bike Shoe

This product was recommended by Mike Joseph from The Cyclist Review

For Flat XC MTB Shoes, I recommend 5 Ten Freeriders, these have the best grip as they are made out of Stealth Rubber, which is the stickiest and grippiest. I own these as well and highly recommend them.
