X-ALP Canyon Cycling Shoe
Your idea of a fun weekend ride might be a few laps at the local trail network— but sometimes you dive deeper, pack up your bike with a few days worth of supplies, and head beyond the trails most traveled. You know your riding is versatile, and with your feet being your biggest contact point with the bike, it's important that they are, too. That's why Pearl Izumi built the Women's X-ALP Canyon Mountain Bike Shoes with a beefy, reliable tread, and bonded synthetic uppers that let your feet breathe when you're lugging your bike over-shoulder across a river, or up through overgrown sections of trails long forgotten.
The X-ALP Canyon shoes feature a bonded synthetic top with ample mesh panels that keep your feet from baking on hot trails. They are low-cut at the ankle to provide a light and fast fit that allows for natural ankle rotation off of the bike. While flex is good for miles on foot, a stiff sole is a must for power transfer on the bike, so Pearl equips the X-ALP Canyon's with a nylon composite shank to maximize power transfer to the pedals, without compromising torsional flex for hiking. Underneath the shank you'll find a lightweight EVA midsole that cushions your steps comfortably, and a beefy carbon-rubber lugged outsole that provides directional traction on foot. The center of the shoe is ready for clipping in with 2-bolt SPD compatibility that sits recessed and out of the way of your lugs, so your cleats don't get hung up on rocks when you're making your way up steep faces.

Great bike shoe under $150
- I've put it through the wringer
These shoes are stylish, comfy, stiff for great power transfer, and don't get hot thanks to plenty of vents. I think that the Backcountry size chart might be a bit off for women's Pearl Izumi bike shoes- I am a true size 8 and a 39 fit perfectly. The only thing I wish these had was some kind of strap to cover up the tied laces. I have been shoving them into the small elastic strap on the top- but it just doesn't work that well and feels kind of janky. Regardless, I don't care too much and once I am biking I am stoked to have them on! I am a big fan of actual laces because they can be adjusted easily and are replaceable.
