Hi all,

I have used the search and google to try and find the lightest mtb shoes. Every post seems to be two to three years old that comes up when I search. I wear a 46 in Shimano M315's and they weigh about 460 grams per shoe. My bontragers are at 455 grams per shoe. I purchased the PI octane 2 sl's and they came in at about 475 grams.

Is there anything out there with a substantial weight savings? Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks!

How do you like those shoes? They are expensive, but they look like they are cheap quality...

Have you seen a pair of custom shoes? Do you actually have any idea what you're talking about? :?

No need to quote the post before you.

I asked because most people have barely seen a pair close up.

The R7 logo stitching looks really dated, but other than that they look like about half a dozen other custom shoes. So not sure why you think they're cheap. :noidea:

Using this pic as an example - If those were my shoes, I may be a little sad to see some of the glue from bonding the MTB tread to the carbon sole but this is hardly any different than many stock shoes.
