For security over obstacles when you are forced to hike a bike, you no longer need to choose between ultra stiff road styled shoes or grippy skate shoes that have no support. Giro's Terraduro Shoes take the best of both so that you are as comfortable riding your bike as you are walking it. The Terraduro's uppers are sewn from breathable perforated microfiber. To reduce abrasions, the toebox and sidewalls have been reinforced. Moving down, the shoe features a nylon shank that provides the stiffness necessary to put power to the pedals while still being comfortable to walk in. This comfort is further accentuated by an EVA footbed with a medium height arch support. At the bottom of the Terraduro, but on the top of the list of cool features, is the Vibram lugged outsole. Yes, Vibram, the same compound used on your beloved hiking shoes. This ensures grip whether you are climbing over wet roots or scaling boulders.
