Clipping in while you're riding has numerous benefits like being able to climb and pedal more efficiently. When you're clipped in, your pedaling power increases and your foot is always in the optimum pedaling position. The Giro Empire VR70 Knit Shoes are unlike any mountain bike shoe. They feature Giro's Xnetic Knit upper and a bonded TPU exoskeletal system that provides support where you need it. The upper is treated to be water repellent and easy to clean. The toe of the shoe has a rubber toe guard and the heel has bonded TPU to increase durability and abrasion resistance. An Easton EC70 carbon fiber sole provides the shoe with incredible stiffness and has a Vibram rubber outsole that provides grip and protection when you're off the bike. If you're looking for a stiff shoe with unparalleled comfort, then this will be your go-to shoe.

So I have been using Mavic shoes for a while now, but every once in a while I'll get debris inside the shoe, so when I saw these Giro I thought "problem solved". Having that "sock" is a great idea, but I'm sure Giro were more focused on designing a cool shoe rather than a working shoe. 1-. I never had any other bike shoe that had any "hot spots" these pair does. 2-. The rubber that surrounds the cleat sits lower than the actual cleat, so when you clip-in the cleat "floats" on the pedal because the rubber does not make contact with the pedal. 3-. I forgot how much laces suck, stick to velcro, buckles, boas, etc. 4-. While the shoe fits well, when you walk it feels like your heel will come off. Tie the laces, you might think, if you do then you get those hot spots... I will have to use a metal file to thin out the cleats and see if that makes the trick. Once you install cleats Jenson won't take the shoes back, so be aware.
The rubber on both sides of the cleat sits lower than the cleat itself, bad design.
