Giova women's road shoes (11)
The top strap on the Mavic Giova is an extension of the main upper and fits the contours on the top of the foot securely and comfortably. The two-density insole offers plenty of cushioning for the whole foot.
The sole doesn’t get the men’s carbon reinforcement but this matters less in smaller shoes – they’re plenty stiff. Reflective detailing on the front and back is a nice extra touch. Some of our testers didn’t get on with the raised profile on the outer side of the last – as with any shoes, try before you buy.
