This is my first time riding with clipless. I picked up the M770 XT clips this weekend at a really good price. Now I need a shoe. Was looking at either the Shimano MT42NV or the MT32L. I don't need a hard core mountain bike shoe since most of my riding is rails to trails and light off road but I want a quality shoe. Any recommendations or thoughts on these shoes?

I am using a pair of Shimano shoes since 8 or 9 years now. Yes, the same pair. It took me several times over the Alps in Europe and has seen quite a bit of service over the years. So my impression of Shimano shoes is: High quality, long lasting.

Not sure which of the two I'd pick. Mine do have the velco strap - and it did hold up over all those years. But the lower price model has a little flex band you can use to tuck the laces under. That works well, too. And if everything failes you can still tuck the laces under the criss-crossing portion. That is what I do with BMX shoes on platform pedals.
