Is there any spd shoes with lots and lots of mesh?

As airy and breath-able as possible, to be worn in summer-like climates.

Will be wearing it for XC riding with the occasional race and rain/mud, preferably not too heavy on the wallet too!

Considered sandals, but would like something with more protection for the toes.



I saw the Adidas Razor and kinda like it: airy, perfect for summer and all..

BUT!

My understanding is adidas no longer carry their own line of mtb shoes, but manufactures them for mavic instead, and mavic shoes doesnt come cheap from where i come from.

Am i wrong on this?

Are they any other shoe manufacturers or models similar to the adidas razor above to recommend?

Sandals

The Shimano sandals are great! I've been riding them for three years and have never hurt my toes. They have a big protrusion for protection. I've done three 25 mile races in them (seriously). When Fall comes I wear wool socks with them, and when it gets colder I put the booties over them with the wool socks. I hate shoes.

Shimano SH-FN51 Indoor Cycling Shoe

These are nice, even though they aren't specifically ATB shoes. I liked them so much I got two pairs. Definitely airy & very nifty closure system. Comfy as well. Only catch is they're only available in smaller sizes now. At least from Performance, where I bought mine originally at a discount.
