Adventure cycling presents its own host of requirements for a shoe that leave traditional road and mountain options sorely lacking in functionality. Giro's Women's Petra VR Shoes let you get the walkability and stiff power transfer you need in a package that'll blend in easily at the pre-ride brunch gathering. Classic lace-up styling offers massive adjustability, and a grippy sole with two-bolt cleat compatibility means these shoes are up for everything from around-town noodles to epic gravel adventuring in the desert wilderness.Giro fashions the Petra VR's uppers from a mix of synthetic fabrics and mesh, blended to provide a balance of protection and breathability that'll have your feet turning in comfort through dusty side roads, rocky access points, and cloud-clearing sunbursts. The lace-up closure system isn't just there for style, but also offers precise adjustability for an impeccably customized fit that minimizes pressure points.Underfoot, a molded shank gives the sole needed stiffness to efficiently transfer power into speed while leaving enough flex for comfortable walkability during hike-a-bike and coffee shop situations. To cap things off, a Vibram Rubber Outsole provides sure-footed grip while an EVA midsole offers comfortable support.

I love these shoes! They're very well built and support my feet perfectly. I do a lot of indoor spinning, so they work well. DON'T go by the size chart on this page. That's the Amazon size chart. Use the size chart in the link below, it's Giro's sizing. I normally wear from a 7 to a 7 1/2 and I ordered a 39, they fit great. [...]
Great quality shoe, compatible with SPD clips that I bought and fashionable. I followed the sizing guide on Giro's website and it fit perfectly. 41 for a size 9 in women's. Clips in photo purchased separately.
Unfortunately once the clip is installed it isn't recessed enough to use as a normal shoe, but the cleated outsole does make it a versatile non-slip shoe.
I wanted a well made and casual cycling shoe for riding around Brooklyn. I work sometimes as a bike courier. These are easily comfortable for walking around town. They just feel like they have a stiff base which is ideal for cycling. The materiel on top breathes well which I greatly appreciate. However, these shoes are not intended to replace your running shoes. I have not yet installed clips but the attachments are easily accessible and they send clear instructions on how to install. I like that Vibram had a hand in making these shoes because I have owned many shoes by them and they tend to have longevity. A tiny tiny bit more narrow than I maybe desired when i first got them but they seem to be a little roomier after a month of use.
