When you’re out on the trail, you want your gear to do everything you expect without having to think about it. Shimano’s WM53 mountain shoe does just that. It features a women's-specific fit that delivers performance and comfort that's hard to find in a shoe designed for men. Rely on it to efficiently send your pedal power to the drivetrain through a rigid fiberglass-reinforced sole. Its stretch-resistant synthetic upper protects your feet from the natural elements of the trail and calls on three hook-and-loop straps to keep you locked in. One of those straps is the Cross X Strap, thoughtfully designed to reduce pressure points when off the bike. And, for times when you're on foot, you’ll appreciate the mud-shedding lugs for self-cleaning traction in all conditions. The sole also features a durable, carefully shaped arch pad that offers un-clipped stability for when you have to quickly get your foot back on a pedal but can’t clip in yet. With trail-savvy features and lightweight design, the WM53 is a great bet for cross-country riding in all types of conditions.
