Giro footwear is famous for fit and comfort, and the Code Techlace Shoes are no exception. Giro crafts a race-bred shoe for riders who want efficient power transfer without sacrificing durability on rugged trails and harsh conditions.
First launched on its road shoes, the revolutionary Techlace system comes to dirt, combining the comfort of laces with the convenience of a strap for dialing in a near-custom fit with easy adjustments on-the-fly. By replacing D-rings and other hardware with laces, the Techlace system provides a better fit across the forefoot and as a bonus, the laces can be easily replaced if damaged. Improving upon the adjustability of the two-strap system, Giro partnered with Boa to offer precise adjustments and a secure feeling at the top of the instep using its L6 dial, providing adjustment in 1mm increments when tightening.
The upper features Giro's proprietary one-piece Evofiber microfiber for a superb fit that conforms to your foot and doesn't stretch over time. Perforations provide adequate ventilation when the mercury rises, and an adjustable SuperNatural Fit Kit reaffirms that focus on internal comfort by letting you custom-tune the insole with three different arch support inserts.
The Easton EC70 carbon composite sole offers pro-level stiffness that remains comfortable on hike-a-bike sections and while running between the barriers. A low, 6.5mm stack height reduces the amount of material between foot and pedal for efficient power transfer and quick clip-ins. The sole is finished with a tough and grippy Vibram rubber outsole that provides protection and traction anytime you're not clipped in. Each shoe also includes fittings for two toe spikes for extra traction when you really need to dig in.

Great MTB shoes
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I now have about 200 miles in these shoes, so I wanted to leave a review on their performance so far. After wearing-through my older Shimano spd shoes, I wanted to switch things up and try these Giros since I had heard good things. They have been great so far - I like that they come with 3 different levels of Arch support, which can be quickly and easily swapped via Velcro on the insole. The BOA system has been solid so far and I do thing that combined with the two Velcro straps, you can get a great customized fit out of these shoes. They take a little time to break in to make them "yours", but are certainly comfortable out of the box. The only thing I would change immediately would be to ensure that the cleats are recessed enough in the sole that they don't touch the ground when you walk around. Unfortunately the cleats do touch the ground, even when the shoes are brand new - this isn't a huge issue, unless you plan to walk around on hardwood floors, but it is something that I feel makes them a 4 star vs 5 star.
Great lightweight shoes
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Great shoe. Reasonably light weight and comfortable to walk in, but also very stiff so your transfer of power is not compromised. I like the BOA closure combined with the techlace system. I am able to dial in a great fit with this combination. Comes with 3 different size changeable arch supports for the insole. I sized-up one size with this model. I went with the size 48.
