It's hard to beat hanging out at your local trail network and hammering out rolling miles of single track, but there's no doubt a challenge when you're doing it in unsupportive shoes that flex under your pedal stroke. Fortunately Sidi has that covered, with a huge array of ultra-stiff soled shoes designated for the dirt, and the Sidi Trace Cycling Shoe for Women is a pair that fits the bill.

Politex fabric is designed to resist laceration, ripping, stretching, and fading, and even hits the marks for European Green Standards, ensuring that the product is totally green, and less harmful to the environment where we spin our legs. Topping it all off, your feet will stay secure thanks to the two hook-and-loop straps that secure your toe and ar...
