There are enough hyper specialized shoes out there that something as versatile as the Louis Garneau Monte MTB Women's Shoe is as welcome as a cool breeze on some hot summer singletrack. Designed for riders who love to get outside but aren't necessarily interested in racing, the Monte uses a high density nylon sole to provide the perfect combination of flex, comfort, and stiffness. The synthetic leather upper is supple and durable, with mesh panels to increase breathability, and the ratcheting instep strap lets you dial in a precise fit without cutting off circulation or hurting your foot. Two additional hook and loop straps at the forefoot prevent side to side slop, and the removable footbed lets you customize the fit if you want to use your own insole. Garneau finished the Monte up with grippy rubber tread and reflective details to help you stay safe whether you're walking up a treacherous trail or pedaling home on the road.
