Your own glass slippers.
Slide your generously sized toes into the Giro Code VR70 HV Shoe, and breathe a sigh of relief as you feel not a hint of pinching, pressure points, or future blisters. Made for those who stand on wider platforms, the HV in the Code’s name is short for High Volume, which is what you’ll get in this roomier version of Giro’s beloved Code kicks.
On your next XC or trail ride, the Code’s pressure-reducing middle strap will allow you to fine-tune the shoe’s security, ensuring you don’t end up with tingling toes halfway through a series of switchbacks. Plus, the Evofiber fabric that Giro constructs the shoe with is breathable and malleable, so it’ll conform to the lumps and bumps of your feet while allowing for airflow on sunny, exposed singletrack.
Underneath your foot, an Easton carbon sole and grippy Vibram outsole provide the mix of stiffness and traction you’ll want in an all-around shoe. For quick tempo laps on your favorite after work loop, the carbon fiber soles will maintain power transfer and keep you turning the pedals quickly, but come the weekend, you’ll be grateful for lugs when you find yourself on a hike-a-bike to a glittering alpine lake.

- Q & A
My Dad has been wearing these for a couple weeks now and loves them. Coming from an old pair of Sidi's, he was in need of an upgrade. He loves the roomy toe box and how stiff they are. But, do not overtighten the ratchets! It's very tricky to loosen them once fully inserted.
Love the High Volume

From bike shoes to ski boots, I don't have a wide foot per se but my foot tends to be higher volume. These shoes are great and give the room I need.
This is my second pair of Cove HV and I love that Giro has finally come around to a Vibram Rubber sole and has added rubber reinforcement to areas of the shoe (heel, toe, and along the lower edge where the upper meets the sole). The EC70 soles are plenty stiff for my liking.
My previous pair last 3 years and I expect with the upgrades these will last twice as long.
