Maybe of use to some, I had the chance to weigh a few shoes while searching for some new shoes.
All are a pair size 41, weighed without cleats.

Current shoes are Shimano M310 - 837g

Giro Code - 696g
Shimano M240 - 763g
Shimano M315 - 737g

Not sure how other models compare, maybe some people can add to this?

I will fully admit that I am a weight weenie but I have never considered the weight on my shoes, shirt, shorts, nor gloves. I like a light helmet however.....

Light shoes makes sense, rotating weight and all... but comfort is no.1 priority and stiffness is also important.

If Specialized's S-Works shoe is as light as claimed, a pair will weigh around 670 grams.

I have a pair of their Comp shoes from 2009 and I have been very pleased with them. They are super comfortable (I haven't tried any other shoes though). The spring in the right buckle is broken, but I'm considering buying a new pair of buckles since the shoes are still fine. When they die I will most likely get the S-Works version.

Kudos to you for taking the gram counting to new heights... or lows depending how you look at it. Ive never considered the weight of a shoe.

I've never considered my shoes as rotating weight. Perhaps I should weigh my ankles and always trim my toe nails tight too? Anybody able to verify sock weights?

It makes sense to me. People are willing to spend loads of cash on saving a few grams from a chainset of new wheels, when you can save quite a bit from a lightweight set of shoes and probably for much less money.

I had an old pair of specialized MTB shoes that were over 1100g. New shoes dropped almost a pound and it was very noticeable!

I race in Nike Poggio II shoes that have SPD cleats. at 541g for the pair they save over 300g over my standard shoes!!! I glued on some side blocks so i can still run a bit but if the race has a lot of hike a bike I leave these at home. weight is weight, every gram counts!
