Ride off into the sunset.
Hit the trails for a day of rolling singletrack or push it even further to full-blown backcountry adventure in the Giro Riela RII Shoes for women. Built with tough uppers, rugged outsoles, and footbeds that keep you comfortable from first to last mile, the Riela RII's are hungry for the trail, and with Giro's sleek styling, you don't have to stress hitting the brewery for a post ride pale ale with the ladies.
The Riela RII uses the same over all construction as her predecessor, the Riela R, with three hook-and-loop straps securing your foot in, and microfiber uppers, but those of us who get a wicked case of hot-foot on most rides get a big win with the addition of large mesh panels along the toe box and lateral portions of the shoes. The microfiber still uses perforations, just as it used to, to help with venting, but the added mesh aids in moisture transfer, helping your feet stay cool and comfortable all day long. A comfortable EVA footbed gives you the support you need inside of the shoe to stay comfortable, and underneath, a nylon injected outsole stiffens things up, so you don't waste your energy on a shoe flexing under your pedal stroke, and instead transfer that power directly to the bike.
The outsole is also topped off with hearty portions of rubber lugs that add traction to the shoe, so when you have to make your way through river beds or up steep, rocky faces, you'll have the grip you need to do it safely. To cap it off, there is a large recessed cleat pad underneath your foot, so you have plenty of room to lock in any 2-bolt mountain cleat, so you can clip into your favorite pedals and ride off into the sunset.

Shoe’s tongue rubs front of ankle
- I've used it several times
- True to size
I bought these for my girlfriend. She’s been riding for 25 years and needed new shoes. She says the tongue rubs the front of her ankle to the point of creating a blister on a 25 mile ride. She says she would not buy them again but it’s not bad enough to return them. She’ll toughen up.

"Changed my mind about bike shoes"
- I've used it several times
I bought these for my wife after she had refused to try bike shoes for years. After one ride with them, her quote was: "Changed my mind about bike shoes".

Is this true to size or would you recommend going up a size? I am usually a 39 in cycling shoes

Hi Charlle, every shoe brand fits a bit different but I find the size chart is fairly accurate for these shoes. Giro does fit slightly narrower than some brands.
