Reflected in their price, the Expeditions feature lightweight Gore-Tex XCR fabric, which helps keep the water out while still maintaining some breathability.
They’re not as heavily built as Shimano’s popular Gore-Tex boots, the MT90s (£115), thanks to a lightweight, airier mesh construction. A quick-lace system with a toggle closure replaces conventional laces, with a Velcro strap to stop the end ﬂapping about.
A seriously chunky Vibram sole might weigh them down but it makes the Expeditions great for hiking, with some extra ﬂex in the toe area a bonus for off the bike activities too.
We’d point out that the ﬁt is on the roomy side – in a 44 they needed thick socks to stop our tester’s feet moving around.
