Scott MTB Premium Shoes - Men's

Premium dirt.

Whether you're leaving tracks through meadow grass or navigating a rocky ridge line, the Scott Men's MTB Premium Shoes will shepherd you through it all in comfort and style. Featuring a breathable upper, a stiff carbon fiber sole, and a secure closure system, these shoes transfer power with ease and keep your feet feeling sprightly on tough trails or hard-nosed hammer fests.

Scott fashions the MTB Premium's upper from a mix of lightweight microfiber, 3D nylon, and Wrap Fit technology for a snug, customized fit. Wrap Fit is essentially an internal layer of synthetic leather that provides extra support while conforming to your foot shape to reduce pressure points and increase comfort. A BOA IP1 closure system spans the top of the shoe and two hook-and-loop straps across the midfoot make for quick adjustments on the fly. Inside, you'll find Scott's Adjustable ErgoLogic removable insole with a customizable arch for additional tweaks to the fit.

Underfoot, Scott incorporates a light, stiff HMX carbon fiber sole for efficient power transfer regardless of terrain. A lugged, X Traction outsole sits over the carbon to protect it from errant hits and provide excellent grip during hike-a-bike situations, and threading for two toe spikes adds options for extra traction on muddy trails or steep inclines.

Ride On - Sweet Shoe!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 46

Hi Guys, I'm a 10yr Sidi Mega Dominator wearer and decided to give the Scotts a try after my Sidi's started to de-laminate in the toe area. I usually get about 2 yrs on my Sidi's before replacement. I ride an Intense Tracer 275C with XTR platform clipless pedals, am 6'2", 203 lbs and ride fairly aggressively. First thing I noticed was that these shoes are stiffer than my Sidi's but very comfortable. I have a wide foot and they fit perfectly without any hot spots or pinch areas. On my first ride, I definitely noticed that the bike tracked better in chop, rocks, and roots due to the stiffness of the shoe. I felt more balanced and in control when out of the saddle, especially when pointed down hill. On steep and off camber out of saddle climbs, I felt the whole shoe transmitted power evenly, making climbs seem easier with less effort. Much different than the Sidi's in this respect. Although the Sidi's win the weight battle, I didn't notice any difference on the trail. I'm impressed with these shoes and look forward to putting more time on them.

Most comfortable & inviting shoes I own.

I planned these for long off road weekend rides, but use them every day. Very comfortable. Little hike a bike here. The soft lugs were first to go on my Northwave Aereators that were my previous favorite - so I am OK with the hard lugs.

Early on in the relationship

So, I cannot comment on durability yet, but I can comment and fit and function which are both first rate. Thank all the gods that have ever been worshiped that a Swiss company finally puts out a well lasted shoe for Americans with feet wider than a pencil. Have never understood the paradigm of producing endless shoes with crowded toe boxes. Only oddity, which I guess we'll see as the season plays out is the hard plastic lugs. They are deep so should give great traction in loamy type trails, but might be scary as hell in Moab, Fruita, or other place where cowards like me do a lot of hike a bike. Thankfully, fit is so great I also bought a pair of the new Schr-alp RS shoes with sticky rubber and more flexible toe area which I can run in more highly technical areas. Gonna be a two shoe summer....

Hey Wade, good review....totally agree about the toe boxes. Question for you....what size european did you go with and how do you think they are sized (run big, small, etc)?? Scott doesn't run half sizes and I'm right in the middle. Let me know what you think...thanks!

Just a follow up to my review after 5 months of use. Yup....plastic lugs are slippery as hell on most anything except loamy dirt/sand. I actually don't get why they didn't spec a softer rubber...other companies with carbon soles are using soft lugs with good success. Hmmmm. I bought a pair of Scott Shr-alp shoes at the same time for use in more technical environments, and these have worked out really well. Same great fit but MUCH more suited to hike a bike prone places.

Sorry Mark. never saw your comment until now and i am sure it's too late, but in case not, they run very true to size
