The Giro Terradura Women’s Mountain Shoes strike the very best balance between super stiff-soled shoes that transfer all of the power but don’t seem to be great for walking and soft-soled shoes that walk well but feel squishy at the pedals. Giro uses a strong and durable nylon shank that is stiff enough to get down the trail fast and just flexible enough to keep your heels to your shoes when mountaineering your bike up a steep incline. A Vibram lugged outsole also grips rocks and other obstacles that you come across at the trails better than shoes that come outfitted with plastic lugs. Even with all that attention to the outsole, Giro did not ignore fit. The Terradura’s upper is designed to fit a narrower foot, with a ratcheting buckle and two hook-and-look closures for a comfy and safe fit. Perforations in the microfiber upper let feet breathe, and toe box reinforcement provides durable have an effect on protection.
