After scoring the supertrac version of scott Kinabalu shoe a perfect 10 I was expecting big things from these shoes. They are billed as the first shoe ever developed with that “All mountain” approach in mind and are named after the mountain bike discipline.
The first thing you notice with the Scott Kinabalu Enduros, apart from the bright yellow and blue colour scheme is the build quality. These are incredibly well-made shoes and just ooze quality. There wasn’t smears of glue or poor sticking like you get with other shoe manufacturers.
The next thing you notice is the weight, boy are these a heavy shoes. Weighing in at
What I like
- The build quality is second to none
- Excellent foot protection
- Scotts eRide system continues to impress
- Vibram Megagrip compound in the sole means the Enduros grip well in most conditions
What I don’t like
- The Scott Kinabalu Enduro is a very heavy shoe
- They are very warm because of all the plastic foot protection
- Not the fastest draining shoe on the market
Are these the shoes you are looking for?
Arch support and pronation control
Fit and sizing
Heel to toe drop
When I first read about these shoes I thought they were going to be the perfect trail and ultra marathon shoe so I do get a slight feeling of disappointment from them. That’s not to say I don’t like them, because I do but they don’t quite live up to high expectations i Had for them.
The Scott Kinalbalu Enduro makes for a great training shoe when your not going to encounter mud or wet trails. The build quality and attention to detail is up to the usual high standard I have come to expect from Scott and the tank like feel means your feet are kept safe from trail nasties.
They excel on rocky terrain where the Vibram sole comes into it’s own and grips like nothing else, even better than the other Vibram soled shoes I’ve used recently like The North Face Ultra Endurance MT and New Balance Leadvilles.
