Step up your cycling game and minimize transition time with the Shimano women's SH-TR9 Shoes. Boasting a lightweight carbon composite sole with a rating of 10 out of a possible 12 on Shimano's stiffness scale, these shoes are built to transfer power in a snap with a few features to make transitions a breeze. Shimano's triathlon-specific T1-Quick strap gives a wide target to grab while in the saddle and easily tightens down for a secure fit while asymmetrical heel loops let you quickly secure your shoes after exiting T1.
The SH-TR9's upper is made from a mix of synthetic leather and breathable, fast-drying mesh that provides exceptional ventilation to dry off after the swim and keep your feet cool and comfortable throughout the bike leg. At the front, a toe cap with air intake perforations helps maintain the upper's shape and provides extra breathability and water shedding properties.

I purchased these cycling shoes for my first 140.6 distance race. I needed a shoe that was a bit wider in the toe box since I have a painful Morton's Neuroma. As far as cycling shoes goes, they are very comfortable. I sized up a bit just to give my toes some wiggle room, but if I hadn't sized up, I'd say they probably run true to size. I also purchased a separate cycling shoe insole which helps. After about 80-90 miles, the balls of my feet did hurt, but I honestly don't think any cycling shoe can avoid that reality. The only negative is that the shoes are white and not easy to keep clean. My friend tried my shoes on and bought a pair for herself.
