Product Description

The code is key. Get the code and you can unlock the secret of performance, a pursuit of many a cyclist. Is it a cipher or a shoe? In this case, the Code is the Giro shoe that Levi Leipheimer, sometimes known as a pro roadie who has finished on the podium of a few Grand Tours, literally took out of the box and on his first ride in them won the Leadville 100 mountain bike race, setting the course record and beating the reigning national mountain bike champ in the process. Pretty impressive performance. And the Code is an impressive shoe, whether or not a Giro-sponsored rider fresh off the Tour de France can destroy a field of pro mountain bikers on his virgin ride with their mountain bike shoes. The first big thing about Giro shoes is that they fit great regardless of who wears them. Like their road shoes, Giro went through 16 iterations before they found the last, aka foot form, they wanted to use to design the shoe around. This last has to accommodate for a wide range of feet, accounting for variations in volume, heel width, arch height, toe length, and so on. Shoe makers pretty much have one shot at designing a good last, the first one is what they'll be stuck with pretty much forever, so it needs to be good. Nailing the last is a great first, but any shoe also has to allow for the upper to be adjusted; the material and the straps have to account for differences small and large from foot to foot to foot. Here, too, Giro has done a stellar job. You can see it from the deep, but not too constructed, heel cup. You can see it in the shape of the top strap and two-position buckle. You can see it in the middle strap that goes across the mid-foot to keep it from moving, eliminating pressure on the metatarsal bones by pulling equally from a large swath of fabric on the inside of the foot; when you pull on the Velcro, the entire panel becomes the strap. The bottom strap takes up any loose space in the forefoot and the toe box design means that there is a wide range o...

The Code's EC90 carbon sole ensures a nice stiff platform when pedaling.

I have a wide forefoot with a narrow heel, and the Code fits perfectly.

I've been searching for a shoe that meets in the middle of: stiff, pedaling performance, but allows you to walk off the bike without looking like Frankenstein.

I wanted to mix the walk-ability of the (heavy!) Shimano M162 with the extraordinary pro-level performance of the full carbon soled (feather-weight) Sidi Drako, while also keeping weight down to a competitive race-worthy weight-class.

This shoe is perfect. The lugs on the bottom are hard, but soft enough that your not clanging against the ground if you walk on pavement or stairs. Weight is about 20 grams heavier than my top of the line Drako (Size 48, 420g/shoe for Drako vs. 440g/shoe for Code according to my kitchen scale).

The Code's EC90 carbon sole ensures a nice stiff platform when pedaling. The custom sole system is excellent as well, I went with the highest arch, it has a Velcro strip to keep it in place. I was disappointed that they didn't come with a pair of SPD clips (my other shoes have). But that's my only gripe so far.

Shoes are perfect in every way. The size I ordered EU8 fits perfectly, it is soft enough to walk when pushing the bike but also sturdy when riding, with good closure and grip due to the three straps.
Highly recommended

Very stiff, yet comfortable. I wear an 11 size shoe normally and the 45.5 fit me perfectly. The custom footbeds that come with it are a nice bonus as well. I highly recommend this shoe!

Bought these to do the barn burner in Flagstaff. Great fit, light and good power. Even managed well in the run.

The shoes fit like a glove; they have a wide toe box and the arch support system I need. Easy fastening system.

These shoes really fit me well. Too early to speak to durability but they look like they will hold up. Prefer to Sidi.

These are my sons and he really liked them, said they were much stiffer and comfortable than the prior pair of Shimano's he had. Word of caution though try out the varying arch supports, the initial pair he used were too large, and very uncomfortable. A change to the proper size was the cure.

I have worn these 5-6 times now. I like them better than the Sidis I have. I have narrow flat feet and I need to use my Superfeet in them. There are no hot spots and I can cinch them up nice and tight.
