Strengths:    Extremely comfortable for narrow feet, good 3 velcro fastening system, stiff sole, great looks.

Weaknesses:    To be found in the field...

Bottom Line:   
I use a pair of Time Sierra and matching pedals on my touring bike. I never found them to be too comfy, but the clever reversible pedal and the flexible feel of the clip does the job nicely. I also use a pair of Time Carbon fitted with Look racing clips and pedals. These are a nightmare to walk with but the power they transfer is amazing. The sole is more than stiff. They show their virtues in strong accelerations where they could rip your knee joint appart if you wanted to. I just picked-up these M110, brand spanking new for 15$. They look nice, they are very comfortable and well ventilated. All I did so far tonight, was walk around with them and I already love them. My first impression: The soles are way stiffer than my Sierra's and I can't wait to test how powerful they are. Indeed, they wrap my feet around the ankle and heel just perfectly. These will give me lots of power and control. The outer sole is a tad softer than the Sierras and I can understand those complaining about the wear-out. But these shoes are made for biking, I beleive they are gonna last for years. In all it's a clever compromise between a true road racing pedal and a mountain bike pedal. The ideal stuff for touring, road training and dirt shoving with just one pair of shoes. All I need now is a set of SPD's... At 60US$ or less if you can find them its a steal. And of course, at any price, if the fit is PERFECT, buy the shoes, no matter what brand or model...

Strengths:    All-around good shoe for non-racer

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I just retired these shoes after five years of regular use. They have been comfortable and durable, which is more than I can say for most of the other bike shoes I own. Toward the end of their useful life the tread fell off in big chunks, but they held together.

I give Shimano credit for making a product that turned out to be this durable.

Bottom Line:   
I like them I've used them for along time now. They are still looking pretty good, I guess the sole isnt all that great, but if I wanted walking shoes I'd go buy some Nike tennis shoes. So to all you wankers nagging about the soles I guess you didnt buy the right "Walking" shoe now did you? this is a good "BIKE" shoe. I think i'll go out now and buy a new "bike" shoe after 4 great years!

Submitted by Jonathan Bishop a Cross Country Rider from Toronto, ON, Canada

Date Reviewed: May 20, 2000

Strengths:    a solid all-round shoe for any kind of intermediate rider.

Weaknesses:    tread pattern is not very aggressive, no traction in mud.

Bottom Line:   
Just retired my M110 after 5 years. Yes, the lasts
are starting to peel away from the upper, and one of
the rubber soles partially busted off on a gruesome
5.7 climb, but what really finished the shoes was
simply accumulated physical damage to the upper due
to my habit of bailing off the back.
I don't even know if you can still get these, but if
you see some remaindered at a good price, grab 'em because they're a solid shoe. Just got a pair of the Lake
MX200 which has the identical M110 last and tread,
plus an almost identical fit.

Date Reviewed: October 22, 1999

Strengths:    
Stiff sole, good closure system, price


Weaknesses:    
Sole could be more durable


Bottom Line:   
These shoes have served me well for just over three years use in the muddy old UK. Sure the soles have lost some of their knobbles but they still do the job. The lorica fabric can shrink a bit when its drying after a soaking but that can be cured by using shoe stretchers. The leather is still in good condition. I think people with wide feet would have trouble fitting into them.

Date Reviewed: March 24, 1999

Strengths:    
A good fit, durable leather, maintained their shape well


Weaknesses:    
The stinky sorrow of sole separation. Silly slavery to the insipid shimano brand.


Bottom Line:   
Uppers were as comfy and durable as I could have asked for. Unfortunately, the soles were gummy and weak. The knobs on the front of the sole wore off fairly quickly, and the tread started peeling off the sole. I have shoe-gooed them on one too many times. Looks like I will have to try some Sidis. I wish they could be re-soled.

Bottom Line:   


Great comfortanle fit, but rubber shreds off almost at once and sole only stays laminated to the shoe for a year if you are lucky. Just bought a pair of the M150's with industrial metal cleats - we'll see how those last. Buy them on sale or forget it...

Two pairs in 1 year - need I say more ... The shoes are really comfy, but what good does that do if the soles crap out after a few months, even without much hike-a-bike! Unacceptable. Got them replaced for free, but opted for exchange second time around. Quality - 0 stars, comfort 4 - overall 1

Like these shoes sharply. They're stiff; the pedals don't stick through the sole, and they also look good. DOn't quite understand why ppl are putting them down. My previous shoes were so soft they could be used for hiking any time, my Birkenstocks were stiffer than those...

Bottom Line:   


These shoes suck! I bought them because I couldn't buy another pair of Sidi. Money was tight and I thought Shimano would have made quality products. How ever, There isn't any sole left after two months of riding. Now, I have hard time walking in some areas. Man, I thought these shoes would last me for a while. But thanks for a contract, I am buying a pair of North Wave or Sidi.

Bottom Line:   


My first pair of shoes were Shimanos. The fit was terrible and they had no soles. My next pair of shoes weren't Shimanos but came with the 110 soles. The shoes (not shimano) were fine, but the soles suck. They broke down so fast it was unbelievable. I sent them to the company (Duegi, BTW they rock) and they agreed that the soles were crap and replaced them. The fit on the newer shoes is ok, but the durability is low.

These things work great on all my bikes. Road, downhill and cross country. I picked them up for 40 bucks with one ride on them, great deal. They have bee a solid, shoe so far and have held up fine, plus, I don't get that damned clicking when I walk in them. They sure kick the ass off my old Performance Quakes.

Bottom Line:   


These shoes are crap. The soles do not stand up to rocky terrain. Mine lasted
about three months before the tread was delaminating from the base of the shoe.
Also the knobs on the tread wear off too fast. I now have a pair of SIDI Dominators, they rock. A much better shoe by far.

Bottom Line:   


I recently bought a pair of Carnac Flights to replace my Shimano 110s (which still are in decent shape if anyone wants to buy them). The 110's don't have a stiff enough sole for those who ride more than they walk, nor a stiff enough upper body (despite 3 straps) for those who like to pull on the upstroke when climbing. Also, when the 110s get wet, they stretch (although they dry out fairly quickly). They served me well, but I wouldn't pay full price for them again.

Bottom Line:   


Well I bought a pair of the green and black Shimanos and after one ride in Moab with a couple of hike a bikes the heels came off and the toe rubber ripped off--I still had four days to go and they barely made it. These are shit! The soles are too thick and they just don't make it.Never buy these shoes!Looking for some Sidi'slater

Anybody riding with or have ridden Specialized BG Trail 110 shoes???

Like 'em or not? I like the idea of the ankle support and the ankle protection but wonder if riding a high topped cycling shoe would be comfortable or not? Too much rubbing? [url]http://www.specialized.com/bc/SBCEqProduct.jsp?spid=40480&eid=342[/url]Read More »

Trail 110 & Trail 120 Shoes (merged thread)

Anyone wearing the Trail 120 mountain bike shoe? Looks like a sweet shoe - stiff sole with protection - but it's pricey! Wish they made one like it based on the less expensive sole rather than using the carbon sole. [url]http://www.specialized.com/bc/SBCEqProduct.jsp?spid=12813[/url] What d ... Read More »
