Shimano SH-TR5, Women

The Draw: Covers all the bases

Shimano clearly put a lot of time into making a women’s-specific tri shoe. The soft interior and supportive heel padding do a superb job of preventing blisters while riding sockless. A unique wider foot entry means there’s no wasting precious seconds in transition. While the sole isn’t as stiff as some other tri shoes, the TR5 offers the necessary foot and ankle support for rides of all distances.
