Shimano 2017 SPD Shoes – 3 of the best

We’re only just enjoying summer 2016, and the influx of 2017 product has already started! First up of the exciting new kit to hit the Factory Jackson offices is the new Shimano SPD range – in particular the AM5 Camo gravity shoe; ME5 trail shoe and the heavily featured ME7 Enduro race shoe – featuring a Michelin rubber sole!

Here they are – starting with the crazy camo Am5…

  1. £74.99
  2. Available from Madison now!

  5. Super tough – last ages
  6. Same grippy and stiff sole as the previous Am45
  7. Asymmetric mid-top design
  8. Lots of padding for protection
  9. Hook and Loop strap for customising fit

  1. £109.99
