Shimano understands that women's feet are anatomically different than men's in several fundamental ways. In order to enhance comfort and performance for women, the lasts are engineered to fit them properly.
The upper of Shimano's multi-use/touring shoe SH-WM34 consists of stretch-resistant fine and flexible mesh with synthetic leather. The classic lacing closure guarantees perfect fit and walking comfort. The side patterns are designed to ensure a snug and secure fit.
This women-specific shoe was formed on a special women's last for a more natural and comfortable fit.
Furthermore the SH-WM34 features a recessed glass fiber reinforced polyamide shank plate for optimum sole rigidity. The EVA midsole and the rubber sole enhance pedaling efficiency and walking comfort. A cleat positioner cap helps to introduce first time clipless riders to Shimano SPD pedals.
