If you're just getting into mountain biking, the staggering array of options for just about every accessory you need can be admittedly overwhelming. Even when you gain some experience and know what you want, there are always newer, lighter, shinier options to lead you astray from the practical, budget friendly course you set for yourself. Not so with Shimano's SH WM34 Women's Mountain Bike Shoes. With a decidedly economical price and a rugged, trail ready construction, the SH WM34 will get you out onto singletrack without a fuss. Shimano crafts the durable uppers with a blend of synthetic leather and mesh panels, lending the shoes durability while making sure your feet are able to breathe during warm summer rides. The mesh is stretch resistant too, so the shoes' secure, streamlined fit won't become a thing of the past after you take them on a few hard rides. The lace up closure makes sure you'll get a secure fit and reliable power transfer while you spin the pedals, with an EVA midsole adding some cushion for the times you need to hop off your bike to walk through cliff side rock gardens. Underneath your foot, the SH WM34's fiberglass reinforced nylon sole gives you some rigidity, a four out of 12 on Shimano's stiffness scale, while the rubber lugs work with the EVA midsole to give you plenty of traction while you're hiking or walking.
