Giro’s New Footwear Comfort Guarantee
GiroFootwear

Buying shoes isn’t easy, especially when you’re staring down the barrel of a $200 – $300 investment. In order to make your decision easy, Giro is now offering a Comfort Guarantee on all their footwear, in addition to their full-warranty against manufacturing defects. This Comfort Guarantee is good for 60 days, that’s more than enough time to ensure your investment will work for you.

XSH01-Product-AW14-06

Rapha’s always had a way of making something so simple look so good. I’ll admit that I was surprised to see their new Cross Shoes bring in such subtle detailing. Made by Giro, with blue and pink accents throughout, these shoes are now in stock at Rapha for $350 and free shipping.

See more photos below.

Rapha: New Climber’s Shoes
Rapha_Climbers_Shoes

They’re not quite in stock yet, but I like the looks of the new Rapha Climber’s Shoes. Based off the new Prolight SLX EC90 SLXII sole and footbeds, these perforated cycling shoes shed weight and maintain stiffness where it’s needed. Coming soon (like in a few weeks) from Rapha.

Giro’s Empire VR90 MTB Shoe Blends Comfort and Style
Giro's Empire VR90 MTB Shoe

I really love my limited edition Giro Empire MTB shoes, but like all of my current shoes, when compared to the Vibram Terraduros, I wish they had more grip for walking over slippery rocks and loose roots.

Giro’s really going for it with the Vibram soles on their forthcoming shoe line and included in the bunch are the new Empire VR90 shoes. Shown here in a limited edition blaze orange.

I’ve been putting in some trail time with these and all I can really say is so far, so good. See a few more photos and more words below.

The 2014 Interbike Super Duper Ginormous Gallery Day 01
at Blackburn!

Interbike. The necessary evil of the industry and the culmination of the year’s energy for me. 48 hours ago and we were in the Sequoias, now, we’re in the towering landscapes of Las Vegas, navigating the halls of the convention, seeing new and interesting products and longtime friends.

In an attempt to make my Interbike coverage as easy to digest as possible, I’ll be doing things a little different. Each day, I’ll upload around 80 photos, with the company’s name in the captions. If you have any questions, ask below and I’ll answer.

Keep in mind, these are products I like and do not necessarily represent everything to see at the show. If you’ve seen something elsewhere that’s worth sharing, holler at me on Twitter, Instagram (@JohnProlly) or in the comments!
