When it comes to Fi'zi:k's top-end mountain shoes, you'll notice a few differences between its M1 and M3 Uomo shoes. First, the closure on the M3 utilizes a lightweight aluminum buckle in place of the M1's SL Micrometric composite version.

For a complete control over volume, or simply to efficiently clean the inside of the shoe, Fi'zi:k designed the tongue pad to be fully-removable. To further control slippag...
