Initial Out of the Box Thoughts

I’m a fan of Giro shoes, I wear the higher end “guys” shoes in the Gauge and Factor. When given the chance to review a more reasonable price Giro shoe I was happy to oblige so that I could see if the comfort I find in a $200+ shoe could be found for around $150.

Right off the bat, the shoe fits. This isn’t a super narrow fitting shoe, but with solid arch support and “neutral” toe box it should fit more women off the shelf than say a Sidi or Shimano (Sidi is narrow, Shimano is wide.) The sole isn’t as stiff as their carbon versions, but this may be a good thing for women that want a bit of give in their sole.

Look for a full review in a few weeks on how the shoes and insoles hold up. Until then, check out Giro.com for more info.
