SH-TR5W Bicycle Shoes | Women

$189.99 USD

Triathlon-specific cycling shoes do make a performance difference in the three-legged sport. The biggest difference is that the shoes are designed with uppers which are friendly to fast installation on the go. And this one manages to hit an excellent price point so that the beginner triathlete can whole-heartedly embrace the discipline.

The keys to this are the oversized reverse strap and the heel pull. The first means you can leave the shoe in the open position and clipped in to your pedals and not have the strap hit the crankarm, chainstays or chain rings. The second is the oversized heel pull, which helps you get your feet in while you’re riding down the road.

The rest of the upper is soft and airy. You can wear it with or without socks. The mesh panels keep your feet cool, while the perforated synthetic leather is tough and doesn’t stretch.
