These shoes were made on Vittoria's Women's-Specific lasts. Typically, a woman's foot is narrower at the heel and is lower in volume. You want your cycling shoe to hug the back of your foot so that your foot doesn't slip and move around during the pedal stroke. If you have had trouble with cycling shoe made on a standard last, consider a shoe made on a women's last.

Vittoria Shoes were started in 1978 by former professional racer Celestino Vercelli. Vercelli had ridden for some of the greatest teams of his era, including SCIC and Brooklyn. For generations Vercelli's family had made shoes, so his starting a cycling shoe company after retiring from racing was a natural. If you are interested in learning more about Signor Vercelli, our friends at BikeRaceInfo.com posted an extended interview with this interesting icon of the cycling industry.

Making Vittoria cycling shoes in Biella, Italy, by hand.

All of our Vittoria shoes were hand-made in the Vittoria shop in Biella, Italy.

Vittoria Zoom shoes don't use adapters for the various cycling cleats. The cleats bolt directly on to the sole, minimizing the distance between the foot and the pedal axle. The closer the foot is to the pedal axle, the smaller the dead spot at the top of the pedal stroke. Hence, the rider is faster. This small detail helps show Vittoria's dedication to making the most efficient and comfortable shoe.
