Giro Factor Road Shoes - Closeout
Giro is kind of a Johnny-come-lately to the shoe category... but all that means is that it gave them a chance to do right what everyone else seems to be doing wrong. Things like understanding that not everyone has the same foot shape, or that a shoe can be both stiff as all get out and comfortable at the same time. That's why we love the Giro Factor road shoes. Not only do they have an incredible Easton EC90 carbon fiber sole with unmatched stiffness and power transfer, and the Teijin microfiber upper breathes well and is uber-comfy. But what we really love is the SuperNatural fit kit, that lets you customize the shoes to fit your feet. It comes with three different arch supports to help fight foot fatigue and arch cramps, so you always have proper alignment and a good pedal stroke motion. We admit, at first we were skeptical, but after trying it out, we started using the SuperNatural fit kit in all of our shoes. So if you need a pair of shoes that truly fits you, with a lightweight, superstiff sole and a soft, comfortable upper, you can't go wrong with the Giro Factor.
  • Easton EC90 unidirectional carbon outsole is optimized for weight-savings, vibration-damping, stiffness and power transfer
  • Teijin microfiber upper is lightweight, tough and conforms to your foot for a snug fit
  • SuperNatural Fit Kit is a cycling-specific footbed which allows you to customize the level of arch support for enhanced power, efficiency and comfort
  • X-Static antimicrobial fiber footbed construction blends comfortable cushioning with effective moisture management
  • Wide offset straps, including a "D-ring" mid-foot strap, eliminate pressure points for a comfortable fit
  • Strong and secure ratcheting buckle

    Stiff, good fit, light, easy to adjust on the go. Highlighter yellow color faded quickly and the shoes look pathetic now. Thank goodness I'm not a fashionista!

      Good shoe

        Comments about Giro Factor Road Shoes - Closeout:

        I have extremely wide feet. I normally wear an 11-11.5 street shoe, as wide as I can get. I was surprised at how well this felt in a 48. Doesn't feel too long, and the 48 is wide enough for my EEE-EEEE feet. Doesn't work as well in winter, when I double up on thick socks, at least not with a thick Superfeet insole. Insole system is OK, but I'm now using a thinner Superfeet model. Sole seems nice and stiff after a year. Solid, light shoe, especislly if you get it at a good price.

        These shoes look great and fit perfectly. I am usually nervous about buying anything online that has Euro sizing, but these shoes in size 46.5 fit my size 11.5 feet perfectly. Very comfortable right out of the box. My speedplay cleats attached easily and I am very, very satisfied with my purchase.

              Love these shoes. The 3 different arch support inserts are nice. The tongue of the shoe rides a little high on my ankle and I have to make sure the notch in the tongue adjusted correctly. It may still be a pressure point later on. Easton carbon in the sole and the shoes appear quite durable (unlike some italian-brand road shoes that wouldn't last if you walked more than a few steps in them after getting off the bike.) I was a little worried about the hi-lighter yellow color at first but now that I have them I think it's a really nice accent.

                For my feet this brand works well, narrow foot,
                somewhat of a lower arch.

                  The first pair I ordered had to be returned. I read the comments of previous customers and thought I'd better order a size up. Mistake! Way too big! I ordered my regular size (43) and it was even a little loose. A fleece and foam insole fixed that nicely. The shoes are very stiff (definitely not for walking) and seem to prevent any numbness in the foot. A very good shoe but too bad they're discontinued.

                      I got these shoes as a gift for Christmas. I have several hundred miles on the trainer. They are the best cycling shoes I've ever owned. Hands down. Light and comfortable. I love having them on my feet. My last pair of Sidis would hurt my feet. I tried several inserts. They would still hurt. I tried these Giros with the custom insert (included with the shoes) and they are awesome. I researched these shoes before telling my wife that I wanted them as a Christmas present. One thing I found was a claim that since Giro has just entered the new shoe market, and they have taken it by storm. They have claimed 25% market share. No surprise. My only dislike is that I think they look kinda plain. You can see that in the pictures. But hey, they are so light and comfy, I can live with the mediocre styling. These are legit..... oh, and the buckle is intuitive, too. Easy to use on and off. Can be done with one hand. Nice simple design.

                      I use the shoes for "spinning" so the fact that I had to order them in a size that might be a bit too big seems fine. The 44.5's were just a bit too snug in the center of my foot and my toes just touched the end. I read somewhere that the latter is OK but I wasn't willing to chance having problems with my toes so I went for the 45s, which still feel a bit big in the toe but otherwise fit OK. PLus I got them in yellow so they look really cool!
