For women riders who are looking for the most fashionable cycling shoes, the best item can be the new road shoe called Factress, which is released by Giro for 2012. As the female version of Giro’s Factor shoe, the Factress also features Easton EC90 carbon fiber soles.
Moreover, the Factress comes with a safe and strong integrated ratchet buckle closure and Super Natural X-Static adjustable footbed kit for the insole, which is available in three different arch supports. What makes the Factress different from the Factor is its fit designed for women’s narrower heels.
Very stylish, the 2012 Giro Factress Road Shoe for Women can be as successful as its male counterpart, Factor, and another female cycling shoe from Giro, Espada. It also features agile and sturdy Teijin Samo microfiber in the upper construction and offset middle D-ring to avoid pressure points.
