The Draw: Shimano Women’s TR-9

This popular tri cycling shoe was the most comfortable in our test of female-specific options. The interior lining felt cushy from toes to heel (especially at the heel), and the overall fit was supportive without pinching. The shoe’s light weight, thanks to a carbon fiber composite sole, also contributes to the barely-there feel. A super-wide Velcro strap on the top of the shoe makes getting in and out lighting-fast, and a large drainage hole beneath the toes lets you shed water post-swim. If you tend to tear up the front tip of your bike shoe, the TR-9 has a reinforced toe cap for extra durability.
