Description

Grip the ground.

Mountain bike shoes seem to come in two categories: those with ultra-stiff soles that provide excellent power transfer but terrible grip when you're forced to hike-a-bike, or soft-soled gravity shoes that feel like you're pedaling with slippers on your feet. Not to mention, women's cycling shoes are often treated with inferior construction and materials. Giro took a look at the available options and effectively combined the best of everything into its Terradura Women's Mountain Shoes.

To begin with, Giro didn't use ultra-stiff carbon for the sole. Instead, it used a robust nylon shank. This allows for some flexibility while walking. If you've ever tried to scale boulders in carbon-soled cycling shoes, you've undoubtedly pulled your heels out a few times — a softer sole prevents this from happening. But, Giro didn't stop there. They added a Vibram rubber outsole with flex engineering in the forefoot. Heavy Vibram lugs securely grip mud, logs, and rocks — or whatever else the trail throws at you. The uppers were constructed from a soft, flexible microfiber that has been tailored to fit a narrower woman's foot. The microfiber features perforations so that your feet are able to breathe. The footbed is molded EVA with a medium arch support. It was treated with an antimicrobial coating to keep bacteria at bay. Padding around the achilles keeps your heel from slipping, and a reinforced toe box provides impact protection where it's needed most.

The Terraduras are secured with replaceable ratcheting buckles, as well as two hook-and-loop closures. An offset D-ring at the midfoot strap holds the uppers against the foot for added support. They are compatible with 2-hole mountain bike cleats.

The Giro Terradura Mountain Shoes - Women's are available in the whole size 36.0, and in whole and half sizes from 37.0 to 43.0. They come in the color Dynasty Green/black.

Terradura

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I agree with the ladies below in that these shoes seem to run narrow. I suggest sizing up on these.
I find they are a bit tight in the toebox and have experienced some numbness on bigger rides with long descents (20+ miles). I'm hoping these pack out a little bit, since I've only used them for about 10 rides. The shoes feel comfy on nearly all rides but I have experienced discomfort on those real crushing rides.

I agree with Re below in that the tongue on this shoe is kinda odd. It's a little pokey and scratchy, so I only pair these shoes with socks that come above the ankle. If you prefer minimalist socks, I wouldn't recommend this shoe. With tall socks, the tongue has not bothered me.

These shoes are fairly stiff and I've appreciated the support they've given me while learning to use clip in pedals for the first time. The soles are very grippy and tacky, as I discovered when down-climbing some slickrock in Moab.

I was pretty nervous about learning how to clip in, but I would absolutely recommend these for those looking to switch over.
They are easy to clip in and out, and I've been quickly gaining confidence with these kicks.

I would not want to use these for any hike-a-bike type adventures, since they would be uncomfortable for extended walking.

I really like the Velcro and clasp closure - they have been far easier to use than my last lace up pair of mtb shoes. They are easier to put on and take off.

Pretty happy with these. Wish the toebox was a bit wider, but they work for me!

too long or too narrow for me, bummer

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Oh my, I had a bit of the opposite problem. I bought my usual size and a half size down to try on. My usual size was too long, and thus loose in the heel, but the half size down was then perfect for the heel and too narrow in the toes. I was afraid I would find nothing but pain if my feet swelled up in the slightest.

I also found the tongue to be uncomfortable against my angle. I don't understand the short hard leather-edged tongue on a bike shoe when you are constantly flexing at that very spot. Sure they put a slit in it to help it flex a little, but I'm not sold. A bit of neoprene, or molding/seewing it away from the ankle, or something would have been great.

I am bummed on those things, because otherwise I really liked the soles and the stiffness (as much as I could tell without using them) and I prefer the velcro straps to laces any day.

The tongue may not bother everyone (and if I give them the benefit of the doubt, I would hope that is something that breaks in and softens up and becomes a non-issue?), so if this happens to be the right shape for your foot, you may be stoked on these!

I guess overall I'd say they seem to be made for more narrow feet, or narrower toe-box.

Hope that helps!?

sizing is small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

Bought these for the sleek appearance and mountain bike functionality but ended up returning them because they were too small. I think the issue was with having the euro sizing and US sizes being a little askew. Order these at least a half size bigger than you think you'll need.
