Like your favorite easy going, life loving sister and her equally laid back hubby, the dirt loving designers over at Five Ten decided their original Kestrel shoe was so much fun that they couldn't stop at just one. As a result, you now have nine nieces and nephews, and plenty of options to choose from when you're upgrading your biking shoes for the season. Just like your sister said she'd do better the second or third time around, Kestrel made a few changes and tweaks along the way that led to the creation of the Kestrel Lace Up Women's Shoe. Designed for hard charging all mountainenduro gals, the Kestrel Lace Up aims to provide a more supportive, contoured fit around your foot than its older sibling with its lace up closure, hook and loop strap, and non slip heel cup. Kestrel also chose a nylon reinforced EVA midsole to achieve more flex along the bottom of the shoe, and it designed the Stealth C4 rubber outsole with a wide cleat interface to make it easy to snap in and out of the pedals quickly on technical terrain. The Kestrel Lace Up's uppers are PU coated synthetic, so they won't crack or rip at the first spill you take on a loose, scree filled section of trail.
