Mavic Giova Women's Shoes $129.95
For women only
Women are slowly gaining momentum in the male-dominated world of cycling. From major sponsors funding women's road teams to the team pursuit on the track being lengthened to the same distance as the men's, women are being granted much sought after parity. When it comes to cycling gear, women deserve the same impeccably designed gear as men. Mavic's Giova shoes provide all the same features as its men's road shoes with subtle differences designed to fit a woman's foot.
The Giova is built upon Mavic's Energy Carbon Outsole. This sole is one of the thinnest on the market and features a 7.5mm stack height which places your foot closer to the pedal. It should be noted that thin does not mean weak or soft. This carbon sole is one of the stiffest on the market. Having less material between your foot and the pedal means that energy transfers more efficiently. Additionally the soles allow for a 5mm fore and aft cleat adjustment so you are sure to have optimal cleat placement for maximum power. The uppers were constructed from a breathable mesh and synthetic leather. Inside the shoes are the Ergo Fit 2D Women's insoles. Comprised of two different densities, the rear features a high density heel cradle while the front is a softer, more pliable material to absorb shock to the metatarsal area.
In addition to the Energy Carbon soles maximizing power transfer, the shoe itself must fit the foot like a glove. To aide in this, Mavic used its Ergo 3D Eva tongue insert. This tongue is pre-shaped to follow the contours of the instep and to provide padding for the top of the foot. Securing the Giova are two hook and loop comfort straps and an Ergo Lite Ratchet. The latter is micro-adjustable so that the shoes precisely fit you feet. Finally the back of the shoe features padding around the achilles tendon for added comfort during long races or rides and reflective accents for low-light visibility.
The Mavic Giova Women's Shoes are available in whole and half sizes from 5.5 to 10.5 and in the color Pearl white.

I wear size 7 sandals and 8 running shoes...
I wear size 7 sandals and 8 running shoes because I need a lot of toe room when my feet swell during run. Should I also get size 8 for this cycling shoes?.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Great road shoe

I've worn these shoes now for 3 weeks and have no issues with fit or quality. Definitely allows more power transfer to pedal stroke because the sole is stiff. If you have a low-volume foot and a heel that is narrow in proportion to your forefoot you will like these shoes because your heel will stay secure and will not slip. Micro adjust buckle works well. I am between a 7.5 and an 8 shoe size so I ordered down and got the 7.5. Again, excellent fit for low volume foot (average size arch, average to narrow width foot, narrow heel). Hope this helps!

Hi there, are these compatible with Shimano A530 SPD pedals?
These shoes are compatible with 3 hole cleats. The Shimano A530 pedals require the 2 hole SPD style cleat so they would not be compatible.

Do they run true to size? I'm buying for a women who wears a 7.5 shoe.
I'm usually between 7.5-8, I'm returning the size the 7.5 pair I bought in exchange for a 7. I looked at reviews before I bought them, most other people seem to think Mavics fit true to size (maybe they were mostly male reviewers?).
Hope that helps!

We do ship to Chile, but unfortunately Mavic has trade restrictions that doesn't allow us to ship their products out of the United States :(
