Scott MTB Premium Shoes - Men's
ScottMTB Premium Shoes - Men's

Dirt nasty.

Know when you’re hammering down a tight trenched-out section of singletrack or midway up a super-techy climb and you think “Hey, my feet hurt”? Yeah, that’s when you crash. Luckily, Scott’s MTB Premium Men’s Shoes will give you comfy feet and a clear head, so you can ride hard without distraction.

The uppers are made from a mix of lightweight microfiber and and breathable 3D nylon, but it’s the Wrap Fit technology that really makes the difference. It’s basically a panel of synthetic leather inside the shoe that wraps around your foot to relieve pressure points and eliminate slipping and hotspots. It’s all closed down with a BOA IP1 instep dial that pulls the upper snugly around your foot, not down onto it, and two hook-and-loop straps that make for easy on-the-fly adjustment.

Underneath your foot, the Adjustable ErgoLogic removable insole has an arch that you can customize to dial in an even more perfect and supportive fit. The insole works with the light and stiff HMX carbon fiber sole to keep you cranking on gnarly terrain, and the X Traction outsole makes short work of hairy hike-a-bikes.

Great Shoe So Far

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 42

If these were a bit lighter, they'd get 5 Stars. I love fit and the adjustability. I got them to replace a beloved pair of Mavics and after trying 5 different brands, the Scotts have the best fit for my feet. I've struggled in the past with numbness issues but 4 rides in the Scotts have been very comfortable while providing amazing control and stiffness.

Good shoes with a Bad Mechanism

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

I am relegating these shoes to the spares box! I've owned them for less than 6 months and ride the trail pretty hard. I've taken two spills and both times the knob on the BOA IP1 mech has broken off. the knobs cost $6 a piece so perhaps BOA is looking at this as an annuity. The first time I hit some rocks and figured I must have caught it just right. Today I just wen't down in some Pine Straw, And that was the last straw. Oh well lesson learned. BOA closures are for the road>

Super comfortable shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Comfortable right out of the box! I can't believe I put up with my old shoes for a year. Fit is ever so slightly large, leaves room for swelling, ha! Scott's 43 is Shimano's and Sidi's 44. Initial impression makes me want another pair for spare.

Life after SIDI

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 47

It used to be that I could put on a pair if SIDI shoes and feel like my foot was instantly at home. For whatever reason this is not the case anymore... I purchased some Drakos and my foot felt cramped. My last pair of Dominators were the same (I wear 47). I put the Scott shoes on and found home again with my feet. 2 rides on them so far and it really makes a difference. My foot feels firmly planted at the contact point of the pedal... I feel far more relaxed on the bike.

How are they holding up Eddie? I'm thinking about a pair.

Ride On - Sweet Shoe!

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.

HaHa! I saw your review and this led me to purchase the Scott Shoes... your review is spot on.

Most comfortable & inviting shoes I own.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

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!
Mark

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
