Road bike shoes on MTB

I notice some Pro's and a few others riding MTB with road bike shoes, just wondering what the thinking behind it is?

 

I guess since the chance of them getting off and having to walk/run are quite slim they don't really worry about 'grip' on the sole of the shoe ....

 

I'm getting new road shoes and thought I could use the old road if even just for training rides :unsure:

On some courses you never unclip so why can you not use road shoes. It's lighter and stiffer then MTB shoes.

In our case Scotty the course may not be the problem :rolleyes:

 

AndreZA that was my thinking, most of out training routes I know I don't have to put my feet down so they would be fine for those ...

When I joined the mtb world I rode with road shoes on mtb. But that was because

I had old road shoes and no money for new mtb shoes (after the purchase of a mtb). The road shoes helps a lot with tech skill because you don't dare putting your feet out.
