Giro came late to the shoe game, but that just means that they had time to make sure they really did it right. And boy did they ever. In just a few years, Giro has become one of the most sought after cycling shoe brands anywhere. The Giro Solara women's road shoe is probably one of the best values in their lineup. With a stiff, durable Zytel nylon outsole, and an outstanding, women's specific last, these are some of the most comfortable, best performing cycling shoes in any price range.
DuPont Zytel nylon outsole is optimized for strength, stiffness and power transfer
Precision Fit last hugs the foot closely without binding, crowding or discomfort
Women's-specific, sizing and patterning supports the lower volume and narrower heel of the female foot
High quality, microfiber upper is breathable, supple and water-resistant
Molded EVA footbed with medium arch support for comfort
Aegis footbed treatment uses an antimicrobial barrier to eliminate odors, discoloration and fading
Wide offset straps, including "D-ring" mid-foot strap, eliminate pressure points
Strong and secure ratcheting buckle closure (replaceable)
Had to return as size chart did not match actual. Size chart stated these shoes would fit a women size 7.5, my wife is a size 7 and her toes were digging into the toe of the shoe. Shoes looked very nice but we had to exchange for another brand as stock was limited on closeout item. Have not seen the exchange yet and it will be 2 weeks today since returning. Maybe holiday has slowed down the exchange process.
