What off season?

Designed for those dedicated cyclists among us who don't take a day off due to weather, the Shimano SH-MW5 Winter MTB shoe showcases smart features to keep your feet warm, dry, and comfortable. Starting with the durable synthetic layer construction, Shimano adds in their Dryshield® membrane to keep the water at bay. Inside, a insulating fleece liner keeps feet warm as the wind and rain buffet the shoe, while the fleece-lined insole adds to that insulation and heat retention.

Foregoing the standard buckle, or more modern Boa closure systems, Shimano extended the shoe with a neoprene ankle collar with a hook-and-loop closure, an extended lace flap, and Shimano's speed lacing system. With the simple pull of a lace, the shoes tighten up for the secure fit Shimano's known for. Down below, a fairly stiff sole is perfect for commuting or light riding, earning a Stiffness Indicator of 5 out of 12 from Shimano. A durable rubber tread provides versatile grip that defies wet, muddy, or icy terrain so you don't end up on your backside as you walk away from your safe, uneventful commute.

The Shimano SH-MW5 Winter MTB Shoe is compatible with 2-bolt mountain-style pedals and cleats.


Features:

  • DRYSHIELD® waterproof membrane with fleece liner keeps feet warm and comfortable in rain, wind, cold, and mud.
  • Insole with fleece liner for added insulation and heat retention.
  • Lace flap and neoprene ankle collar keep out water and dirt.
  • Speed lacing system allow fast, easy adjustments and a secure fit.
  • Adaptable cup insole with fleece liner.
  • Durable rubber tread offers excellent grip and traction.
  • Stiffness Indicator: 5 of 12.
  • Claimed weight: 445 grams.

Review for Shimano SH-MW7 Gore-Tex Cold/Wet Weather MTB Shoe

I am only a week in to using these shoes, but they are performing exactly as expected.

Here are the highlights

1. Keeps my feet dry.

2. One step process as I no longer need to put booties on over my cycling shoes.

3. Not very warm, but that works for me. (Aligns with other reviews)

4. On the wider side. Also works for me.

5. Neoprene inner boot that is part of the tongue needs adjusting after putting boot on.

6. Not as high as booties so an exposed gap can occur between pants and boot.

7. No cleats. (Should have expected that, but I had to buy another set of cleats.)

I am in Vancouver so we get lots of rain and these boots are dry. The intended purpose of these boots are for commuting. I use them with Shimano M540 pedals on a Surly Disc Trucker.

The only issue is the inner boot part needs to be straightened out when I put the boot on. You can't just slip them on. Very minor and the pros massively out weigh this minor issue, which may get better as the boots wear.

Review for Shimano SH-MW7 Gore-Tex Cold/Wet Weather MTB Shoe

I bought these shoes a couple years ago and all I have to say about them is I love them. I have worn them in 5F weather, 38F and rain weather and all sorts in between - my feet have not been cold or wet! I only wear one simple pair of merino wool socks and stay toasty warm and dry every time out on my bikes. Trudging through the snow on my Fatty, Fondos in the early spring rains - these boots rock! The only negative comment I have about them is they are not the easiest to slip on and off because of the layered construction but that is worth the little hassle to keep the feet sweet! True to size and very comfortable. BTW, WBW have great pricing and great service!

I'm a Sidi diehard so I ordered the Sidi Diablo as well as these and I'm so happy I did. These shoes are like slippers! Don't get me wrong...they have the requisite stiffness of a good road shoe (I prefer mountain bike shoes for all of my riding), but are so comfortable. I found the Sidi Diablo incredibly stiff and uncomfortable so back they went. The Shimano in a 40 fits my narrow women's 8.5 perfectly with a mid-weight wool sock. You can't go by the chart. These run large. For that matter, I could probably fit a thicker sock in just fine. The upper is very pliable and hugs the foot nicely. I do find that my toes still get a bit chilled when riding in the lower to mid 30s. A shoe cover should take care of that or possibly a toe warmer. That said, my feet do tend to run cold in general. The jury is still out relative to waterproofness. I have had wet feet after a couple rides in light rain, but I think a couple more wet rides with special attention paid to battening down the hatches on the shoes will tell me if it is the shoe or if it is user error. It appeared to be getting in through the upper at the toe area as my tights closed off the ankle, the shoe was wrapped and fastened well at he Velcro closures, and only my toes were wet. I'll provide an update once I know. I still highly recommend them for their superior comfort.

This was my first purchase from WBW and I will definitely be back. They were very responsive to questions and everything was shipped and billed in a timely manner. The shoes have been great. I did not size up for these as I read they designed them around a larger toe box. I dont like to wear big bulky socks so the same size as my summer shoes works great for me and does have a little extra room for thicker wool socks. If you like to wear huge socks maybe a half size up? The quality is fantastic and I personally love the Velcro closure. It's very secure and easy to do imo. They are not the warmest shoe you can buy, the big wolvhammers are probably warmer but for the average cyclist trying to ride during the winter these should be sufficient. I can't wear them above 45 degrees without sweating like crazy. With regular wool socks I've only been the slightest bit cold in 25 degrees and that was only when I stopped riding. Adding a thicker wool sock should do me well down to as cold as I'm going to ride anyway. If you want to ride in negative temps you likely need something better than this. I tested the waterproofing by standing in a puddle up above my toes without issue. Very comfortable to wear and I love the piece of mind that if I put a foot down in a puddle in cold temps I'm not going to be worried about frostbitten toes. They are easy to walk in off the bike, the rubber tread on the bottom seems much better than the last models plastic lugs. They are noticeably heavier than my summer shoes but what do you expect? I dont find them to be too heavy at all. I believe they are only 100 grams heavier than my shimano summer shoes. Highly recommend for 20ish to mid 40's temps, unless your feet are always cold in which case you may like them for 30s-50's. For the subarctic nuts out there look for something more extreme

I've had these shoes for a year now. I was new to bike commuting and thought these were better than shoe covers, but my feet would still get wet. Almost a year in and these shoes hold water like a bucket, but my feet don't get too cold due to the Wet Suit effect. After an hour of riding to get to work, I am pouring about a cup of water out of each shoe.

Although these Shimano shoes fit comfortable, I am not impressed at all and am looking to purchase a replacement option. I am very disappointed in these shoes.

I have had lake boots for years and they are great, though a little warm when it is right around freezing. They are also very heavy when pedaling. I had been eyeing lighter weight winter shoes for awhile and pulled the trigger on these when I was waiting on replacement parts for the buckles on my boots. I have been very glad I did.

They keep my feet dry and I have felt plenty warm down to about 20 degrees. Spinning them around the crank axle takes a lot less out of me over the course of a long ride as well. Would definitely recommend these for commuters and anyone else who likes to ride in the cold who doesn't necessarily need coverage for subzero (fahrenheit) temperatures.

These run pretty true to size, I bought them over the internet without physically trying them on first. The lace system works well, and while it may seem a little on the flimsy side, it's holding up to abuse. The ankle collar seals well and works great with the insole flap, these shoes are very secure and snug on your feet once they're all velcro'd up. There's room in these shoes comfortably for 2 thick pair of socks, even though the shoe looks narrow. They have a lot of reflective graphics on them which is always a nice touch. They are definitely much warmer than a standard mtb shoe, though if you're somewhere really cold (i'm in New England) you'll still want to wear some booties over them. They accept a cleat with no difficulty (i use eggbeaters), though the cleat well seems a little more confined than other brands at first. Price-wise they seem a little on the high side, but I am happy with them so far.

I've used these shoes in sub 20 degree weather and they are super warm (when coupled with toe warmers) - much better than neoprene shoe covers. They also seem well-made. Fit is consistent with other Shimano products.

As I suspect most winter riders do, I ordered the shoe 2 sizes larger than my regular shoe, so I could fit 3 pair of socks on inside the show. The first pair is a wicking layer, the 2nd layer is wool, and the 3rd layer is a neoprene sock. My foot did not get cold on a 3 hour ride at 36 degrees. Below 36 I add a booty over the shoe, and below 30 I add a chemical foot warmer. My coldest ride so far has been 20 degrees for 2 hours. My foot stayed warm.

My old shoes where causing my feet to be very cold and painful. The SH-MW7 shoe fixed that problem and my feet are much more comfortable and warmer. The shoes fit accurately, not too big or too small.

Went to the warehouse in Portland and tried on all the different winter shoe models BikeTireDirect had. These were the best as they are easily to put on and off. Some shoes had too many straps and gadgets. Most reviews I have seen for winter shoes recommend a size or two bigger. I would not recommend going too big in model. Normally, I use a 42 in Shimano and Specialized. I did, however, purchased a 43 in these and these is plenty of extra room. As for warmth, I have 6 mile commute in the cold Central Oregon mornings with temps between 20 to 35 F. The shoes have performed as expected, feet stay warm. Also, feet have not overheated on my ride home when temp have been in the 50s and 60s.
