Mixed Views

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

I’ll keep it short and sweet: - I love the grip and walking ability in these shoes (feel safe and grippy) - the laces are terrifying and I have to tuck them in my shoe (which gets uncomfortable) because if I don’t they catch in the chain

Great so far.

I've used it several times

I've had these shoes for about a month now. Several long rides, no issues. I've never been a fan of clipless pedals because the shoes are never wide enough for my feet. They feel like I'm footbound in narrow, uncomfortably stiff shoes. These aren't the widest but they fit. I bought them for a gravel race I'm doing. I don't usually clip in. I like riding flats but these are really nice. I would not pay $150 for them but I got these on sale for $90 and I would highly recommend them. I like the laces better than the boa.

Worked great straight out of the box

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I broke my rule and used these straight out of the box for mtn biking event, a 35 mile ride sponsored by my local mtn bike club. I hurt in many places 4 hours later but my feet was not one of them. I love the wide toe box and they clipped in and out no problem. I’m 58 and have been riding and racing xc and cross, mostly riding, since 1992. These are my new favorites.

A 2-hole-cleat shoe for the road

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

I was looking for a 2-hole-cleat (SPD) shoe for use with shimano ES600 road touring pedals for my road bike. Why? I wanted the feel of a road pedal and shoe that I could also wear and walk in comfortably off the bike when stopping for a cool one. My rides are mostly less than 2 hours and totally for pleasure, so I didn’t need a top performing ultra stiff SPD-SL shoe. The Giro Privateer Lace is that shoe. While it is positioned as a “mountain bike shoe”, it is similar in fit to my Giro Empire E70 SPD-SL road shoes, but with a sole that allows me to walk on pavement and floors without slipping or duck-walking. I’m a 9.5D with a higher arch and the 43 is snug but comfortable. I’m a fan of laces as Velcro can wear out and BOAs are convenient but add cost. Laces can be adjusted for my foot shape, the lace garages on these shoes keep the ends out of the way, and lace shoes are not only less expensive but also don’t look out of place at the pub. The olive/gum color looks pretty good too. With the discounted price I’m happy and recommend these as a “mountain bike shoe” you can walk in that works as a decent recreational road shoe with SPD cleats/pedals.

Great shoes for the money

I've used it several times

I have 4 x 20 miles gravel rides w/ these shoes so far. Laces have yet to loosen during a ride. No numb feet. Comfortable. True to size. Zero complaints. Five stars for the money. Paid $110 for the purps color

Comfortable and look good...

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:

Got these as my first pair of mountain bike shoes after many pairs of road shoes. They are comfortable with a snug fit and spacious toe box. The laces look good and seem to conform to the foot better than BOA systems. Compared to carbon sole shoes, at least the road version, these have a fair amount of flex when out of the saddle. Sizing matched the chart, same as my Lake shoes. Good value on sale.
