When you find a shoe that really works with your riding style you tend to stick with it. After three rides I think the Women's Skyline will be such a shoe. I finally opened the last box of my favorite riding shoe that I had stockpiled when I learned the shoe was discontinued in 2013. I've looked at so many other shoes but they all seem to be designed by people who think that women don't attack the hills like the boys or only ride on nice groomed paths. Frustrating. I ran across a review of the Skyline and Ride Concepts as a company and I am so very glad I did! The asymmetric medial collar is something I never fully appreciated until I rode with a shoe that didn't have this feature and ended up with a severely sprained ankle. Ride Concepts is the only company that I have found that is making a women's shoe with this feature. Overall the shoe construction is not clunky, not hot (even at 110 degrees), has great support, provides protection for toe and heel for inevitable hike-a-bike. So far I have found this shoe to be comfortable on 3 hour rides and will certainly be testing it's all day comfort as I complete the entire Arizona Trail. The only suggestion I have is for ladies to order the next size up. I exchanged my first pair for a half size up but Ride Concepts made that exchange easy and toes are really glad I did.
