Look quickly and you’d never know it’s a mountain biking shoe at all.
Northwave’s Spiders combine running shoe aesthetics and breathability with a stiff sole for plenty of power transfer.
If you have to walk, the grippy Michelin sole with enlarged edges have you covered.
Northwave’s proprietary SLW2 dial tightens down and holds solidly, then releases incrementally with the push of the button, or completely by pulling the button.
A Velcro strap across the ankle provides stability around the top and back of the foot too. This is your shoe if breathability is a priority.
