Sizing!? WTF is up with the sizing?
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: 42.5
I have owned 5 prs of Giro Factors, Empires and Tech Lace over the past 11 yrs. All are the same size (42.5) and all have appeared to use the same last. I cannot explain the narrowness and overall fit of these. My feet hurt just putting them on with the thinnest sock; a Woolie Boolie sock is simply a non-starter, (boo!)! I loosened the laces all the way out such that the velcro won't fasten (too short) and still no relief from the pressure. I don't have a high arch. I'm curious about the HV (high volume) version Giro sometimes offers, but it's not in stock and no one seems to have a 43 or 43.5 to try. These do not appear to stretch and it pains me to mail them back, but alas... maybe they will fit your feet.
