Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Five Ten has been the MTB shoe benchmark for quite some time. Simply put, they make great shoes. That being said, I have never felt like Five Ten shoes have fit me as well as others.
My last pair of Shoes endured a decade of abuse but, the soles had given me all they could. I tried on a few options and read many reviews landing on the Giro Jackets. The Jackets fit me better than others I had tried including Five Ten. The grip is great and stick well to my pedals (Diety Compound). I often have to lift to reset a foot. The sole is supportive and actually fairly stiff which offers a great platform for standing on the down and mashing on the up. The shoe itself is supportive when laced and keeps my foot comfy and in place. The laces are super solid and stay laced always. The lace keeper on the tongue keeps the loose ends put.
The style is cool but my wife hates the color... I like it (Turquoise). All in all a pretty solid product from Giro that I love.
I only have one complaint and it has to do with Giro, not the shoe. These laces are really good and stay knotted. I want another pair in black and Giro cannot get another pair. They don't sell this lace as a replacement on their site and could not direct me where to get another set. ...really? They're your laces. They rock. How can you not get a set other than on the shoe new? ...great laces in case you didn't catch that.
Me: Size 9.5 U.S. ; but, I often size down. Size 43 was perfect for me. Not tight so I believe this shoe runs about true to size or possibly a tiny bit large (less than 1/2 size).
