Yes, you can generally wear hiking boots as mountain biking shoes. However, on longer rides, or more challenging terrain, the benefits of a lightweight mountain biking shoe become more important. A hiking boot’s outsole is built for durability on uneven terrain. Mountain bike outsoles are specifically built for repetitive movements and contact on the flat pedal surface. Even though some versions look just like skate sneakers, they’re designed specifically to grip the pedal and protect your feet through rough terrain, making it more comfortable and safer to bike in a pair that’s meant for the bike.
The best shoe for mountain biking provides excellent cushioning for your feet plus traction so the shoes don’t slip off the pedals easily. To determine which type of shoe is best for your specific mountain bike, first check your pedals. If you’re using a platform (flat) pedal, look for shoes with a flat outsole. If your pedal is designed with an interlocking cleat system, look for clipless shoes. (Clipless shoes have a cleat on the outsole that connects directly to the pedal. They’re called “clipless” because they improve on the older technology involving a clip.)
