Mavic Tri Helium
$350, Mavic.com
The draw: Most precise fit, strong connection with the foot

Most triathlon shoes fit less precisely than road shoes. The Tri Helium is the exception. Its intricate shape locks the foot into place without pinching or creating hot spots, even without the benefit of socks. Its padded heel cup anchors the foot and unlike most shoes, the forefoot strap effectively tailors the shoe’s volume. The tongue comes high up the ankle and subtly impinges foot flexion. Add the Tri Helium’s stiff sole and the miniscule weight, and this shoe is the perfect choice for speed and comfort.
