Looking to get a new pair of shoes and have narrowed it down to these 2 pairs.
I usually run Shimano shoes because I have narrow feet.
Anyone with experience with either of these shoes please chime in
Not a direct comparison. I've owned multiple pairs of Terraduros and recently bought the new Shimano ME7.
I owned multiple Giros due to ongoing construction issues with the shoes. To be fair, this was some time back so those issues may have been corrected. I did really like the Terraduros when they were in one piece, but if memory serves I destroyed five or six pair in less than a year.
I have maybe 100 tough Phoenix miles on the new Shimano shoes. So far, they've been incredible. So much so that the only shoe even close is the Specialized 2FO Cliplite.
I never had Terraduros (mainly because of their weight vs other manufacturers) but got a pair of Shimano M-163, which are the "predecessor" of the ME-5 (and now use a pair of M-200, which are almost the same as the ME-7). Aside from the looks, which was pretty plain verging on ugly IMO, I absolutely loved these shoes. In fact, they have been one of the most comfortable pair of shoes I've owned in 25 years of MTBing. Easy to walk in, protective, pretty light for "trail/enduro" shoes and durable, as far as I'm concerned. I must warn you, though, that I had issues with the "clip" (small metal part where the ratcheted part of the strap goes in) of one of my M-200 shoe, which bend repeatedly. Still, for the price, the ME-5 are a very good buy IMO.
