Very weak shoe
I've used these shoes 5 times and already ripped a hole in the toe box, right through the "tough" black plastic toe area. These are severely lacking in durability, especially in the toe area. I'm generally quite gentle on equipment so I was surprised these shoes did not last. Otherwise, they were stiff, light and comfortable. I wish I could recommend them, but even at the clearance price they aren't worth it. At least they got destroyed quick enough that I can send them back to Jenson with their great return policy.

PROS: Light, Comfortable

CONS: Wear Out Quickly, Poor Quality

BEST USES: Mtb, Cyclocross

Awesome shoes
I was looking to upgrade my Shimano M162 but did not found what I wanted from Shimano. Giro is making 2 excellent models the Gauge and the Code
I took the code since jenson did not have my size for the Gauge. I am really glad I bought these shoes, they are way stiffer than my previous ones and also lighter and more confortable. be careful to order .5 Euro size bigger. I wear a size 44 for the M162 and took a 44.5 for the Giro and they fit perfect at that size.. At the moment they seem harder to clip in than the M162 but i'm adjusting to them at the moment once clipped in though their amazing ..

PROS: Comfortable

CONS: Harder To Clip In

This MnT bike shoes are more comfortable when walking compared to Road bike shoes. Clip-less of course. Clip's into pedal's with ease.
The straps and adjustable clip make my feet feel secure with no play inside "I LikA LotA"

Oh yes the inside sole can be taken out, there is two Black Felcro strips on the other side like I have shown in the photo.

PROS: Clip's With Ease, More Control When Walking, Stylish, Durable, Worth The Cash, Comfortable, Fit's Secure

BEST USES: Casual Wear, Travel

Great XC racing shoe, super stiff
These are great shoes for XC riding. Super stiff and comfortable for extended time in the saddle. My longest ride in them was 50 miles and I didnt have any issues, unlike my old shoes that would flex enough around the pedals to give me serious pain issues after hours in the saddle. I wear 45.5 sidis and 45 Giro fit like a glove. That great stiff sole though makes these a pain to walk in. Your heel will slip and even with relatively grippy lugs the shoe is just going to be clacking over anything you try to climb on. For SoCal its not an issue, anywhere wet and muddy, I might look into something a little less stiff...

PROS: Comfortable

Nice XC Shoes!
These shoes are a replacement for a pair of Specialized Comp MTB shoes I've had for years. I normally wouldn't buy shoes quite this expensive but Jenson had a great price on them so I figured I'd give them a try. I'm glad I did! I wear 43 in the Specialized (and anywhere from 9 to 10 in regular shoes) so that's what I first ordered in the Giros. They were a little small so I went up to a 43.5 and they fit like a glove.

The Fit Kit is great and really lets you adjust the fit of the shoe. I have almost non-existent arches so I used the small inserts. This made a noticeable difference in the feel of the shoe. The carbon fiber reinforced outsole is very stiff and lightweight as advertised. This makes a huge difference on longer rides - reducing fatigue and foot/leg pain.

The straps are comfortable and the ratchet strap is easy to operate and seems solid. Walking in the shoes isn't a problem but they're obviously not running shoes. They have good grip off-road, even in pretty muddy conditions. The only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars is because I haven't had them long enough to evaluate durability. They do seem to be well made though so I do have high hopes.

PROS: Durable, Comfortable, Stylish

CONS: None so far

BEST USES: Xc Racing, Cross Country Mtb, Racing

Super Stiff AND Super Comfy
I'm on my second pair of Giro Codes. Before the Codes I had a set of the Gauges which is an almost identical looking shoe but with a lower grade carbon on the sole. These shoes wear out fast; a couple of cross races on the latest pair and the two front lugs are already almost gone (the other two pairs did the same thing). I get about a year out of them before I wear holes in the toebox, which for me, is probably about 1200 miles in the dirt. If your local trails are buff singletrack and you never have any rocky hike-a-bike, you might be able to get some more life out of these shoes.

If I was forced to buy this shoe at retail, I'd look for something else instead, simply because I can't afford to drop almost $300 a year on shoes. That being said, these are the most comfortable cycling shoes I've ever worn. I generally do endurance races on my SS and even after 100 miles or 10 hours on the bike I have no hot spots, no soreness, or any type of discomfort from my bike shoes. These shoes fit my low volume feet and my narrow heel amazingly well. If Giro could find a way to bring their durability level up to match other top of the line shoes, they would be perfect.

PROS: Fit, Well Ventilated, Stiff, Customizable Insoles

CONS: Sole Wears Easily, Weak Construction

BEST USES: Long-distance riding, Climbing, Xc

Just what I was looking for
This shoe is excellent, albeit a bit small in sizing. I normally wear a 9.5 ( normally a 42.5), but I had to size up to a 43. I definitely suggest going by the sizing chart from Giro on this shoe. It is stiff, comfortable, not overly gawdy in the Magnesium/black, very functional and appears to be well made and highly durable. It certainly exceeded my expectations of a first run shoe from a manufacturer getting into the business. Critical features like stiffness, strap and buckle function, and insole quality are on par with a high end shoe.

PROS: Durable, Comfortable, Stylish

Nice Fit, Durability?
I bought the size 43.5, and they fit great. I'm generally a size 10 street shoe. To compare to other brands, these would fit like a 43.5 Sidi or Shimano. These come in half sizes, which I really appreciate, 43's are a little too small, and 44's are a little big.

The carbon soles are nice and stiff, which makes walking a little difficult, but they ride really well. The shoes seem reasonably light. They come with an insole that has different sized inserts for arch support, which gives you some flexibility with fitting.

The only con I have after two rides is with durability. On ride two, there was some walking for a couple hundred yards, with some rock, to an overlook. The thin plastic covering on the toe wore through from just this short walk. So, there's now some shoe goo on the toes.

PROS: Fit, Performance, Comfortable

CONS: Durability

BEST USES: Trail, Cross country

Great fit for high arches
I have very high arches and this is the first pair of biking shoes I've owned that had execellent arch support. The shoes come with three different size arch supports from low to high. I used the high and have never had such a comfortable pair of shoes that transfered so much power to the pedal. Instead of all the energy going through the ball of my foot my whole foot does the job. After trying them on a couple rides I ordered two more pairs. At the sale price they are a bargain. The only downside is the protective black rubber on the toe box is not that tough, and if you ride through or climb over lots or rocks they get worn out fast. This happened on my last pair of shoes also, they were Shimano and it did not affect them long term, just looked ratty.

PROS: Excellent Arch Support, Comfortable

CONS: Wear At Toes

Narrow Soles
Wanted to like these shoes because I had a pair of privateers that fit perfect. The carbon soles would have been awesome IF they were the same width as the privateer. They are a full .25" narrower at the widest part of the sole and a tad narrower still as they approach the arch. This was a deal breaker for me as they caused significant pain on the outside edge of my feet. This was even more severe because carbon does not give and the out side edges of the sole would dig into my feet after about an hour.

Awesome deal if you have narrow feet, but if they're a little wide, look elsewhere.

CONS: Wear Out Quickly
