As a sizing guide, Bontrager suit wider feet, Shimano narrower.
There are two different styles of shoes for use with mountain/hybrid cleated pedals. The models styled on a road shoe – Bontrager Evoke and Shimano XC30 – will have a reasonably stiff sole, so a good option for road riding if you need a treaded shoe, or for faster off-road riding. The walking shoe style Bontrager SSR Multisport has a more flexible sole, and is a more relaxed, comfortable shoe.
If you prefer to use flat pedals, then the Shimano AM41 has a flat textured sole, designed to grip the pedal and prevent your foot slipping off the pedal.
Unconditional Bontrager Guarantee - all Bontrager shoes come with a 30-day trial period, if you don’t like them, return them for a no-quibble refund.
