Giro Trans Shoes $0.00
Race-ready in a cash-strapped package.
The Giro Trans Shoes have all the fit and design elements of Giro's more expensive shoes, but they're also designed with your bank account in mind. That is to say that you're still getting a composite 6.5mm sole, you're still getting an upper built around the same Giro last, you're still getting the same Giro strap placement, but you're getting it all with a nod at saving money each step of the way.
The sole is Easton's EC70 version, a carbon composite made of 70% carbon/30% glass, and it comes out of the same mold that Giro uses for their EC90 and EC90 SLX soles. The upper is microfiber, sourced for price, and the insole is a molded EVA footbed with medium arch support and an anti-microbial treatment on the fabric top sheet.
In other words, if you tried on the Giro Factor shoes and then wore these, the fit will be the same and the straps will work just like the straps on the Factor. The upper won't feel as supple and the sole isn't quite as stiff, but it will be supple and stiff and feel very much like the Factor you just took off.
The Giro Trans comes in two colors -- Black and Blue/White. The buckle is replaceable and has two positions for further adjustability. The sole is drilled for three-bolt cleats, and there are pads underneath both the heel and toe for walking on slick surfaces. If you have a yen to try Giro's Supernatural Fit Kit, know that the arch on this insole matches the medium arch of their after-market kit; the shoes are designed to accept after-market insoles without issue. They're available in whole sizes from 39-48 and half sizes from 39.5 to 46.5.
- EC70 carbon fiber sole provides low-profile stiffness for optimum power transfer
- Micro-buckles and hook-and-loop straps let you dial in the fit
- EVA footbed with Aegis anti-microbial treatment keeps you comfortable and stink-free

What community has to say
Amazing fit and ventilation. These shoes are very well made.
Can't find one problem with them.
I first started out with a shimano sh-ro87g as my first road shoe. I was really wanting to upgrade to a better shoe. I have seen lots of good reviews for giro's shoes. I didn't want to spend alot for the trans model or the slx shoe from giro. After i saw them on sale here i went with these. So far i couldn't be happier! I love the all black color with the silver giro highlights. The fit is dead on, I wear size 10.5 and the 44.5 fits great. There is no comparison to the shimano shoes that i have. My foot seemed to slide around when really pushing hard, my foot is dead steady in the giro's. I haven't been in hot weather yet with these, so i have no opinion on that yet. though i'm sure they will be fine, due to my foot freezing in cold temperature rides in early fall without shoe covers.
I have never bought bike shoes and I am...
I have never bought bike shoes and I am now attending 3 spinning classes a week. What shoe would be best for me in a amid price range?
Really Like This Shoe
This is my first and only road shoe at this point, but they seem great. The 44.5 fits my 10.5 foot really well. The fit, comfort and stiffness is well ahead of my mid-grade Shimano MTB shoes in 45. I have had almost no hotspotting. Any discomfort I get can be alleviated by focusing on my pedalstroke temporarily. And sweating like an Amazon jungle has had no effect on the shoe thanks to the Aegis treatment.
