I did the hunt for the lightest shoe last year and didn't choose the very lightest, but the lightest, most comfortable shoe, the Specialized Carbon Comp. Definitely worth a look. They've held up remarkably well over the year and have a better tread than many of the ultra light shoes. The tread is actually deep enough to protect your cleats and soft enough rubber to give you good traction on wet rock.

Don't cheat :) 299g on their site ;)

Not the lightest, but may be more good-looking shoes - Specialized s-works mtb.
In 43.5 size weights 344grams..

What is the lightest that looks like a normal shoe, or at least one of the lightest. One that has the color of a street shoe.

Bont or SWorks all the way. Shoes have to do a much bigger job than just be light and it is important to get them right- I went through pretty much all of the other options listed here before buying the Bont's (but a touch too small, doh!) then finally the SWorks... If I stumble across them in my bits box I can give a real weight for the 42 Bont if this helps?

Giro Empire VR90's should be pretty high up on the lightweight shoe list. Claimed at 315g for a 42.5.
