Giro Apeckx II HV Shoe - Men's $149.95
Room to move.
The Giro Men's Apeckx II HV Shoes bring all the streamlined, race-worthy style and affordability of the Apeckx to those of us with wide or high-volume feet. The Apeckx II HV is packed with top-end technology, superb stiffness, and comfort while leaving a few extra dollars in the bank for post-ride coffee stops.
The main difference between the Apeckx II and Giro's more expensive shoes lies in the sole. Giro utilizes DuPont Zytel nylon in the place of the Easton carbon fiber in shoes like the Empire and Factor. Compared to carbon, Zytel provides similar stiffness, power transfer, and durability without the sky-high price tag. An EVA footbed with medium arch support will fit the majority of riders, but Giro's SuperNatural Fit Kit is available separately if you want to dial the fit a little further.
The Apeckx II HV's closure system consists of a middle hook-and-loop strap that snakes through a mid-foot D-ring for excellent adjustability in tandem with a ratcheting buckle on the top strap. The middle strap essentially turns the entire panel of inner fabric into an extension of itself, eliminating pressure on the metatarsal bones by pulling equally from a large swath of material on the inside of the foot. The bottom strap adjusts the fit around the toes independently of the other straps for a comfortable ride every time you clip in.

Reviews & Community
Nice shoe, but careful with sizing.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: 43.5
At the time I ordered these, the 'size guide' said US 10 shoe = 43.5. But that was definitely not true. I would say if you are a size US 10 then you should order a 44.5 instead. Other than that the shoe is quite nice. Another review said the shoe is not very wide, and I would agree with that. Also, something I like is that the toe-box area of the shoe is snug as well (i.e. there is not a bunch of open space in the shoe above your toes, for your foot to move around within the shoe).
Shoe is not wide
This shoe is not even as wide as the Shimano mediums that they were to replace.
