You can spend lots of money on fancy bike shoes and get plenty of carbon fiber, NASA level tech, and voice activated features, but at the end of the day, a shoe is no better than its fit, which is why Diadora's X Phantom Women's Mountain Bike Shoes are so awesome. They don't have the doodads, dangles, and jibjabs that lots of other shoes have, but the Women's Last footbed and narrow last give them a fit that more expensive shoes can't exceed. The upper is made from Suprell Tech, a strong but flexible synthetic that'll conform to your foot without stretching or deforming. Even better, it employs a soft TPU frame called Morpho AM, which wraps around your foot for a great fit without hotspots or slipping. To seal it up, Diadora included two hook and loop straps with dual ring closures, so you can choose the correct ring to nail the volume that best suits your foot. Finally, a Sport Road reinforced composite sole provides the stiffness you need for powerful pedaling while remaining flexible enough to keep feet comfortable and walking easy.
