MTB Shoes - SixSixOne Filter or B'Twin RR 5

Postby McNab_79 » Fri Sep 27, 2013 09:27 am

Does anyone have any views on these, or has anyone actually worn or tested either? Any advice on sizing of the SixSixOne - do they come up small or big? I'm usually a 7, but I know in the RR 5 I need an 8, but I've not seen the SixSixOne shoes in any stores locally.

I hear that SixSixOne are supposed to be pretty decent, but so are the B'Twin. They're both available for £49.99.

The 661 are nice but shimano AM45 are better biking shoes really.

And those RR look turd IMO

Cheers. I was never really going to for the RR shoes, but it was an option in the same price range for a comparison.

Not overly keen on the Shimano, as they didn't seem to be comfortable when I tried.

Opted for these in the end:
