    Feels true to size

    I love these shoes.  They''re exactly what Giro intended.  They''re true to size, have a great insert (in case you want to use them).  OR, they have space for me to insert my own orthotics by removing the included inserts.

    I''ve ridden darn near everything.  Most recently, I just gave away a $350 pair of top end Shimano road shoes (too small, too not flat, too not right).

    To ensure stiffness, I bought the SLX vs the Factor shoes.  I wanted the buckle, but, am living very very well with the velcro.  ''Apparently'' the SLX have a step up in their carbon sole.

    Also, these shoes are super light .... especially compared to the Shimano bricks (which my nephew now has to haul over mtns.

    I ride, ... a lot.  I ride in Toronto, I ride in NY State, I ride in Pennsylvania, I ride in Colorado (Gotta love Colorado!)  These shoes.... I''ll buy another pair when it''s time.  OH, I just bought a mtn bike... I''m buying a pair of Giro Code shoes too.  OH, I bought my girlfriend a pair of top end Giro road ladies shoes... she loves hers too.

    I remember reading in a magazine when Giro was planning their shoes... I waited enthusiastically based on their plans.... they delivered exactly what they said they would.

    Also, the prices at Swim Outlet keep me coming back.

    Feels true to size

    These are excellent shoes for racing and training.  They are very light, responsive and comfortable. They compare well with S-Works and Sidi 6.6.  The only knock I have against them is the absence of the buckle.  It seems nice and tight and I have about 5 races on them now and never felt like they needed to be tightened.  So, I think it''s just a habit thing of giving the buckle a snap before start time.  They are very comfortable though.  No hot spots what so ever on my tender tootsies.  

    Fit is close to Sidi.  Maybe slightly roomier in the toe box but, only slightly.  This is the fit I both like and expected from Giro and it was spot on.

    Great Shoe!

    Feels true to size

    I ride a lot. Now, I only ride road. I spent many years in Carnac shoes (now though, their shoes have become somewhat ... odd)

    Next, I spent way too much money on the top Shimano shoe (stiff, oddly curved sole, no space in shoe, and seems to always crunch my toes in their oddly shaped toe box).

    For the past few years, I''ve been reading the Giro shoe reviews (from before they were even on the market). I bought my girlfriend a pair of the Factress as she was in the same need as I was - she loves hers. So, I ordered a pair of the Giro Prolight SLX. They are everything they are supposed to be: VERY lightweight, lots of room for my toes and enough ''flat'' room for a pair of orthotics. The inserts that come with the shoes are a very good effort for a ''standard'' pair of feet, however, if you''re used to wearing orthotics or have a high arch, you''ll be using your own inserts (AND these shoes have space for your own inserts!)

    I do find that my feet have signficant arches and insteps which means that I do find that top velcro strap a little ''high'' and binding which subsequently means that I have to run that top strap a little looser. Regardless, the heelcup has sufficient holding form to keep my heels in place. If I was ''building'' the ''next'' version of the SLX shoe, I''d add a little more structure to the heel (and maybe a little higher)

    SwimOutlet.com could not be beat !! For price, availability, customer service (their folks are great, I spoke with two of them), and delivery. I FULLY recommend using these folks as your vendor of choice.

    If I had to do it again, I''d likely bring in the Giro Factor shoes as I love the single buckle vs. the SLX''s velcro. Regardless, this shoe does rock (and I immediately took them on a week of road-climbing in the Finger Lakes region (mid-NY state) Having said that, my mind works so that I may still bring in the Factor shoes...

    From what I could find out regarding the difference in the soles of the SLX vs. the Factor: yes, the SLX is meant to have a stiffer sole (UHM carbon, vs. ''carbon''), but, if I''m running a 3/4 length stiff orthotic anyways, therefore, it doesn''t matter. Further, when I contacted Giro (US), they indicated that the SLX sole was primarily intended to be ''lighter'' than the Factor sole. [perhaps of note: I am an ex-racer. I wear a size 47, I''m 6''1" (185 cm) and weigh anywhere from 186 lbs to 200 lbs (85 - 91 kgs).]

    Worth the money? Yes.

    Other shoes I''d consider? Sidi''s top dogs (although, they never fit me very well, which is why I''ve never bought them... and their latest top dogs are crazzzy expensive - I mean come on, they cost a little more than my most expensive handmade office shoes)

    Not many miles yet but easy break in, very light and low stack height. Seem a little pricey but worth it.  I especially like the adjustable fit kit.
