    good shoe and great price., April 30, 2013

    My last good pair of cycling shoes were SIDI dominator shoes with velcro and ratchet straps. I don’t have a wide or narrow foot and typically fit into 44 size. I grabbed the 44.5 GIRO Privateer to accommodate a heavy sock for winter, but the shoe fits very snug. (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 but I received standard foot beds and they are nice. the ratchet and straps function well and can be clasped or undone with one hand and are replaceable. The one complaint about the SEDI’s is that the lugs of the sole were very hard and slip on granite which is very prevalent on New England trails… I have not been slipping in these GIRO Privateer shoes! The fit, construction, and the enclosure system is excellent. I also use crank brothers pedals and there are shims to space the cleat, they should be used with these shoes because the lugs are deep and may bottom on the platforms of the Candy or Mallet models.

    I use the shoes for both my road and mountain bikes. They provide a great platform for the transferrence of power to the pedals.

    If you’re the kind of person who can have nice things, get the Code or Terraduro; if not, these are pretty good., December 9, 2014

    If you’re the kind of person who can have nice things, I would recommend spending a little extra money on the Code or Terraduro. if you’re not (like me) get the Privateer.

    The privateer fit pretty well, but i have a couple of gripes:
    * the ratchet sticks to the shoe preventing you from fully securing the cleat initially – i have to tighten it after i move around a little.
    * the Velcro straps allow for a snug fit, but not a great one.

    They are a little more clunky than the Code (which ive owned as well), and also a little on the ugly side, but the price is right.
