The Giro Privateer Shoes sheath your feet in a combination of performance and comfort not easily matched in shoes of a similar price point. Their uppers are constructed from a synthetic leather that is not only supple, it holds its shape for miles and miles of riding. It is also breathable so that your feet stay dry no matter how high the temperatures rise, and mesh inserts have been sewn into the uppers to speed up the evaporation process. The Privateer’s uppers are secured with a ratcheting buckle at the ankle and two hook and loop closures. The DuPont Zytel composite sole isn’t quite as stiff as a carbon sole, but it also isn’t as pricey. But, when it comes down to it, having a slightly more forgiving sole means more comfort for long hours in the saddle. The deep lugs provide traction when you need it. The EVA molded footbeds provide medium arch support that works with the sole to enhance comfort for the long haul. The Giro Privateer shoes are compatible with 2-hole mountain style cleats.

(I should get winter specific shoes anyway since booties only last a season if that!) the fit is excellent and the insole has good arch support and it seems there are optional foot beds for the shoe that have adjustable arch supports…

Attention Large-footed Cyclists! Finding larger sizes in cycling shoes has always been a chore for me especially with European sizing, cut of shoe, how it’s built, etc. I finally found a supplier who carries size 50 (US 15). I received these Monday evening, set-up my cleats, and clipped in the next morning for a FANTASTIC ride. They are comfortable, easy to walk in, good support and from its look, you would easily think it’s a road shoe. I can best describe it as a “hybrid road/mtb shoe.”If you are in the…
