Why We Like The Riddance Cycling Shoe

Many slopestyle, DH, Enduro, and trail riders prefer rocking flat pedals for those occasions when going flat out requires foot out and the ability to separate yourself quickly from the bike for a trick or an unfortunate crash is necessary. Giro's new flat pedal offering, the Men's Riddance Cycling Shoe is designed for such disciplines where pedaling efficiency is still valued and slipping a foot off the pedal isn't fast, it's scary, and cushioning and protection are important criteria as well.

To mitigate the chance of your foot blowing off the pedal, Giro worked with its long-time rubber supplier, Vibram, to create the stickiest shoe compound it has ever launched. Dubbed Megagrip ISR, the outsole's rubber helps dampen vibrations and sticks to the pedals like flypaper. Underneath the rubber is a full-length EVA midsole that soaks up the hits from hucks-to-flat or bone-jarring bottom outs. The microfiber upper is both hardwearing and supple while being water-resistant and its traditional lace closure, with a keeper, offers an optimized fit and casual looks. The front and rear of the shoes receive rubber reinforcements to improve durability in these high-wear areas. Finally, the molded DH EVA footbed with arch support further adds comfort and support so the last thing on your mind when it comes to clearing that gap jump is your feet.

  • Flat pedal shoes offering grip, comfort, and protection
  • Breathable microfiber upper is sturdy and supple
  • Lace closure offers a great fit
  • Vibram sole is the stickest yet and dampens vibrations
  • EVA midsole is stiff enough for efficient pedaling while still able to soak up the hits

Quality is good, they fit me well. I can't rate durability as I used them only few times but so far I like them a lot.

My way overdue purchase of Riddance, after a lot of research , are a welcome relief. I finally retired a pair of Cannondale clipless, converted my pedals, and these shoes give me the firmness as well comfort I wanted.

I purchased a pair of 5.10's when I switched to platform pedals and found them to be too tight (I have somewhat wide feet). They took forever to break in and were never totally comfortable. Then I tried the Giro Riddance and it was a breath of fresh air. Super comfortable and very supportive. I can wear them on a 3 hour ride without a problem. I ride xc trails and enduro and I find that the Vibram rubber is a good compromise of sticky and durable. I never pop off the pedals even on chunky downhill.

I have a hard time buying shoes, any shoes not just bike riding shoes, I use giro shoes on my road bike as well and when I saw these I gave them a try. while I haven't ridden to many times yet they are comfortable and grippy. very stiff so far with good drip on my flat pedals. I'm sure once they break in it will beeves better. I have wide feet with a high arch which makes shoe fit difficult these felt great right out the box. looking forward to more riding. seems well made with a tough build quality

Sick trail shoe

This shoe offers great grip, but the stiffness of the shoe is definitely my favorite feature. The shoe has a narrow fit and feels aggressive with a performance focus. 46 fits well for me, and I wear and 11 or 11.5 sneaker.

Awesome shoe!

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

After just getting my first bike, I decided it was time to retire the old skate shoes I had been wearing with rental bikes. I have not used them much, but so far, so good. The Vibram sole is super sticky and I have not had any issues yet, I have slipped off a few times, but I blame that on my novice technique, not the shoes. I got size 40, which lines up with my usual size 7.5, they are a bit snug but I am sure they will loosen up as I wear them more! Will update review after more usuage.

Close, but no cigar

I've put it through the wringer

I previously had the Chamber's and loved them, but since I ride flats, wanted more shoe surface on the pedal. I bought these thinking that the "megagrip" would be just what I needed... boy was I wrong. These shoes slip off on even the mellowest of rides, including on the ups. I really wanted to like these shoes since my Chamber's were so bomber, but honestly I can't recommend these to anyone who is serious about riding. Unfortunately will be going to 5-10 for my next bike shoe.

Great fit, durability, stiffness

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Great fit, durability, and stiffness. These flat pedal shoes offer tons of grip and comfort. After several days of riding, there is little to no damage to the soles. The soles are made from high quality vibram rubber which is very sticky on flat pedals. The shoe laces and shoe tongue make it easy to get a tight and secure fit. No cons, as they fit to size and are high quality. I’d easily recommend this product for anyone looking for a great pair of flat pedal shoes.

Great cycling shoe, this is my second shoe. I have another in red which I bought 2 years ago,
