The style of this shoe is relaxed with a pearlescent white finish and a light blue script that reads, “women’s specific fit.”
With 3 Velcro straps and a stiff rubber sole this simple, classic design from Shimano has been created with the nuances of a woman’s foot in mind offering a low, narrow heel coupled with low volume at the toe.
The first thing my girlfriend said when she got her pair to test was, “They don’t look so much like a space boot,” referring to how she feels about most cycling shoe styles. I think this comes from the impression that most athletic shoes are styled for men.
These are comfortable and lightweight, the breathable mesh does its job keeping your foot cool while also remaining quite adjustable with the Velcro straps.
A nice detail that sets Shimano’s design a part is the stretchy neoprene tops on the tongues that prohibit any irritation on top of your feet.
While these are designed for mountain biking, they are also versatile enough to be a cuter choice for spinning at the gym. All you need are some SPD clips and you are ready to workout.
Sizes: 5 to 10 ½ (Euro 36 to 43)
