Pearl Izumi X-ALP Summit Shoes (Black/Grey) (40)
It's still the first month for me riding with these shoes, but so far they are excellent. The top buckling strap keeps the shoes snug on my feet. No complaints about the lower 2 velcro ties either. The outsole of these shoes are much larger than my previous Pearl Izumi MTB shoes I had. This is not a bad thing per se as the larger outsole makes for great traction if and when you need to hike-a-bike your MTB. However, I did have to order an extra size larger winter booties that go over these shoes. It was impossible to stretch the appropriately sized winter booties. I have ridden a few times with the one size larger booties over these shoes without issue. Another thing is to make sure to not use the screws holding the cover over the clipless pedal cleat attachment to attach your cleats. They are not made to be torqued like the screws that come with your pedal cleats! Overall, nice MTB shoe value for the price!

Pearl Izumi X-ALP Summit Shoes (Black/Grey) (43)
Shoes are great! I am a US size nine and have bought EU size 43 road shoes in the past. These run a tiny bit large... so if you’re a US 9 IMO I suggest ordering a EU size 42. Depends on how thick your socks are too...
Otherwise these work well. A bit “technical-looking” as they are very black and chunky. I honestly don’t prefer that but the shoes otherwise are really very comfortable and click in well to my SPD pedals.
I like the ratchet strap at the ankle. Again kinda technical but they work really well and fast.
These should stand up to a lot of trail use and abuse!
