Offering a great entry into the world of clipless SPD riding, the Shimano SH WR35 Women's Shoes blend value driven performance with ample comfort. Its fiberglass reinforced nylon sole is less stiff and uncompromising than race driven offerings with carbon. However, the sole still provides efficient power transfer, thanks to its fiberglass reinforcement. Ultimately, this makes the SH WR35 an ideal choice for beginner cyclists looking to enhance performance over riding flats with regular sneakers.Looking to the shoe's upper, you'll find a multi layer synthetic that's stretch resistant for a well bolstered fit without deformation over time. Strategically placed mesh inserts disperse heat away from your foot, enhancing temperature regulation on long rides. Other key features include a women's specific fit that's narrower than what you'd find on a men's shoe, as well as three hook and loop straps for a customizable closure.
