First Look: Giro Terraduro shoes

Pro Reviews Shoes

Giro’s new Terraduro all-mountain/trail ride shoes just showed up on our doorstep and before we get them all dirty, we thought you’d like a peek. We first showed the Terraduro back in our Interbike coverage, but Giro have since revised the buckle from those pre-production versions resulting in what we have here.

Designed in consultation with Team Giant enduro/cross country/cyclocross/anything-with-two-wheels honch Adam Craig, the Terraduro’s are intended to both be efficient pedalers, as well as have the flex and grip to handle the occasional off-bike rock scramble.

The shoes feature breathable microfiber uppers; Giro’s MR-2 replaceable, ratcheting buckle closure; an offset strap D-ring hook-and-loop closure at mid-foot; and a rubber toe cap.

The outsole is covered in sticky Vibram high-traction rubber, and has a molded SPD-compatible shank that’s been optimized to allow for a more aft cleat placement—a position many riders prefer in more technical situations, according to Giro.

The interior footbed is a molded EVA affair that’s coated with an anti-microbial treatment called Aegis to reduce odors and general foot mank.

Available in black or orange, the 420-gram shoes also come in a women’s configuration under the name Terradura and retail for $180.

Look for a full review down the road as we put these new trail dogs to the test.

About the author: Don Palermini

Chicago-born editorial director Don Palermini became a cycling-based life-form in the sixth grade after completing a family road bike tour of his home state. Three years later he bought his first mountain bike to help mitigate the city's pothole-strewn streets, and began exploring the region's unpaved roads and trails. Those rides sparked a much larger journey which includes all manner of bike racing, commuting, on- and off-road bike advocacy, and a 20-plus-year marketing career in the cycling industry. Now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area and pedaling for Mtbr, his four favorite words in the English language are "breakfast served all day," together in that order.
