Shimano's M038W Shoes are designed specifically for women and won't make you look like a Martian. These great commuting/sport shoes feature fiberglass-reinforced nylon midsoles for efficient pedaling, wide toe boxes for comfort and rubber soles with recesses for the cleats (sold separately) for easy walking.
In order to mount your pedal's cleats to your shoes, they must have matching bolt patterns. There are three configurations (diagram) used on cycling shoes, SPD-R, Look and SPD. Road shoes feature one, two or even all three of these. Mountain-bike shoes usually use the SPD pattern. If you're unsure what bolt pattern your shoes use, please contact us. We're here to help!
