Scott’s Road Comp Boa Lady Shoe sits at the more entry-level end of its road shoe spectrum, one level above its entry-level Road Comp Lady Shoe. We've had our hands on them for a while in an effort to find out if they're good enough to earn a spot on our best women's cycling shoes list. 

While this mid-to-low level shoe may not have some of the bells and whistles of its more premium RC model, it does offer excellent value for money, especially for anyone looking to start out their road racing journey without breaking the bank. With women’s cycling very much on the up, and more women getting into the sport, having access to entry-level cycling shoes that offer good value for money is very important.
