The Giro Jacket II Shoes are skate inspired mountain bike shoes designed for a life on the trails. They feature the Vibram Megagrip rubber outsole, which provides you with exceptional grip for trail riding, dirt jumping and down-hilling. The EVA cushioning in the midsole helps reduce shock and the Poron XRD heel pad helps reduce impact on hard landings and bail outs.

Vibram rubber outsole with excellent pedal zone grip, EVA midsole with Poron® XRD™ heel cushioning
These shoes are great, not the best, but pretty darn close. The sole of the shoe is pretty firm and comfortable while pedaling. I have noticed though that the rubber on the sole does not seem to be as tacky as the 5.10, but you still get great grip while pedaling up hill and in rocky downhill sections. I do enjoy having such a firm toe on the shoe. I feel it gives better protection while riding and hiking your bike up rocky terrain. I'm currently using these shoes as my All Mountain/Enduro riding shoe. All in all I would highly recommend this shoe to a friend! And for the price you really can't go wrong.
Super comfy! Super Stylish! you can wear them with jeans or Dickies and a flannel and go have dinner with your lady or some cut-offs, cycling short liners, tube socks, and your favorite punk rock t-shirt and go shred your local trail. You can even take them to church, if that's what you're into. The vibram sole clings to everything. I've worn these while riding bmx plastic pedals and they STICK BRO! Like if I was riding metal pins. The fit is pretty much the same as DVS or Globes with out the excess padding. I bought mine half a size bigger because that's what I do. And if you ever find yourself in the mountains on side of a icy road putting on chains while wearing these shoes, just know that your feet will stay warm and dry and sure footed thanks to that Vibram sole. enjoy.
This is a one year review. Purchased in July 2018, ridden about 100 miles probably, I'm not a super hardcore rider. The design and comfort of the uppers is great, nice and stylish, fits well, but they've only lasted about half a season. The lugs on the Vibram sole that are designed for the pins of flat pedals to sit within have just been totally chewed up and ripped off. Most of the grip comes from this design, so with out them the grip has suffered tremendously. Definitley won't be re-purchasing. Going to go with a 5.10 Stealth rubber, or something for more long-term durability next time.
Tried these on and was instantly not impressed. The toe box is quite narrow for a size 47 and the straps that are at the toe at the end of the laces binds my toes. Have difficulty finding comfortable shoes because of the shape of my particular feet. Might work well for others. Fit was so bad haven’t ridden in them so can’t comment on performance.
