2017 Recon Mixed Terrain Shoes

When the paved road ends, the Recon Mixed Terrain shoes begin. Designed for riders who take one look at that switch from paved to gravel and say "yes please," they're the perfect blend of durability, comfort, and adventure. And with their stiff FACT carbon soles and Body Geometry footbeds, you’ll feel a tremendous connection to the bike, which translates to power as you tackle fireroad and paved climbs, alike. Should you encounter any obstacles that say hike-a-bike, the grippy SlipNot™ tread delivers superb traction for confidently scrambling over the rough stuff.

Yes.

It's a very good product, a little hard on the heel.

Extremely comfortable

Very comfortable. Most Specialized shoes are too narrow for me and start to hurt on long rides but these are much wider.

So far yes.

My first pair of bg specialized shoes were purchased in '08. I found these beaut's on sale and couldn't pass them up. I'm glad I didn't, the are light and comfortable. I can't wait to see how they really break in.

Great Everything Shoe

Fits great, true to size. You can't really go wrong with these shoes, especially for the current closeout price. Nice and stiff sole, I've done just about 300 miles in them and they're comfortable. Highly vented so your feet stay nice and cool. The only downside is if you ride in the rain, your feet will get soaked. I would suggest to buy water-proof shoe covers.

Seem like good quality but much too narrow, returned.

I have a pair of Comp MTB shoes that work really well for me so I ordered a pair of these a half size larger because half sizes weren't available. When I received them I put one on and it was so tight I didn't bother trying the second. Put them back in the box and returned them. As it turns out Specialized won't let you exchange them towards the purchase of a different item. I am still waiting for my refund 2 weeks after sending it back. I won't be buying from Specialized online again.

Excellent shoes for MTB and gravel riding.

These shoes are really comfortable and fit very well. The lacing allows me to tighten the shoes evenly along the top of the shoe. They are stiff for power transfer, but remain comfortable when hiking with the bike.

Great product for rough conditions

I'm a college student in Idaho and ride my bike everywhere. It's constantly snowy and muddy but the shoes provide great grip and keep my feet dry.

The Recon shoes Rock

These are super comfortable, grippy for the hike a bike section. I'm disappointed these shoes are discontinued. Please bring them back!
