Get a grip.

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.

best buy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 46cm

this shoe is such a good shoe for the price. a great soul, plenty stiff, walkable when needed on the trail, or for after ride pizza runs. the ratchet system on it is a little finicky especially with gloves on. but that would be the only down fall of these shoes.

Disappointing to say the least.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

It's hard for me to write a detailed review on these shoes, as the right one wouldn't come unbuckled straight from the box- most likely resulting from someone in the assembly process closing them too tightly. The buckle was jammed up firmly against the rubberized upper portion of the ankle strap, preventing it from coming free while trying to undo the buckle's release mechanism. I had to return the shoes, which sucked because they looked really promising for trail riding here in Utah with their rugged Vibram sole.

This jammed buckle is a major design flaw with Giro mountain bike shoes, as my previous pair of Privateers experienced this same thing, albeit due to my own error of overtightening of the shoes, causing the buckle to jam up against the rubber tab atop the strap. Bottom line is Giro needs to shave down the width of the rubber atop the strap, so the buckle doesn't jam up against it, thereby preventing it from releasing properly.

Awesome design, but why so narrow?

These shoes are stiff, comfortable, grip great when you need to walk ... they've lasted me 1800 mtb miles so far... My only complaint is that 1. They don't make a women's version and 2. Even if they did, no point because these shoes are so dang narrow, I'm not sure how a typical guy's foot fit in them. They are narrow on me as a woman - really, this should be the woman's version and the HV version should be the guy's version.

Does not apply discount??

Fit and Feel Great

  • Size Bought: 46

Little bit narrower. I have a pretty normal sized foot and I'm liking them though.

Protective and light. Easy system that keeps them buckled down and easy to get in and out of. Wear a size 12 shoe

Narrow Toe Box

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Size Bought: 45

Nice shoes I don't have much time in them but the toe box is way too narrow!!!

Good All Around Clipless Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

These are certainly not the lightest shoes that are available, however, they are not really intended to be. The vibram soles add a good bit of heft but this is what makes them so comfortable to ride in all day. The sole has some flex built in as well as good traction; this makes any hike a bike sections much more tolerable than wearing ultra stiff carbon soled ultra light shoes.

Sizing off for me

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 47/48

Giro sizing is all over the map across their shoe line. I was warned about these fitting small so purchased both 47 and 48. Turns out I need a 47.5, but of course giro doesn't make that size. For comparison purposes I wear 47 in Shimano xc61 and m163, so back to Shimano for me.

Awesome besides two small flaws

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These my not be flaws for you but here is why they werent 5 starts for me.

First thing is the tongue does not stay put. The rim of the tongue is rough and really dug into my ankle for a while when i first got them. I now run them not-so-tight and the rubbing isnt bad.

The next is the width, they are not a very wide shoe to begin with and have since stretched a bit. But i dont really have a too-wide foot and these are narrow. So they took some time to break in.

Besides that they are burly and i definitely like them now. Wasn't so sure the first two weeks or so. I bought a 45.5 and i usually wear an 11 street shoe. I think i could have sizes up just a bit but overall im happy.

Great All-Rounder

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I've really enjoyed using these shoes. Sizing is a bit small compared to what I'm used to, but only slightly so.

Materials are very good. The last seems like it will hold up very well, and the sole is awesome with the addition of Vibram. This is definitely a shoe I don't mind riding in all day, as it's not so light that it scrimps on comfort, but offers a nice balance for trail use.

So far so good

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So far I really like these shoes. I've been looking for an all mountain shoe that has good tread for hike-a-bike stuff but also has a stiff sole for good power transfer to the pedals. On top of this I wanted the shoe to be reasonably lightweight and ventilated, and a lower profile that is not bulky.

The Terraduro tics all those boxes for sure. I typically wear a 10.5 in street shoes and the 45 fit me best. So far no major complaints, the tread in the toe area is starting to wear a bit but that's after a good amount of hiking thrown into the mix.

I highly recommend these shoes if you get the size right!

Surprise! They are great!

Full disclosure, I am a proponent of lessening the weight on the rotational forces around the crank/shoe/BB area to increase pedaling efficiency. Coming off of Giro Code shoes to these I thought that I was getting into some cement shoes that would bog me down. Couldn't have been so wrong.

The sole is JUST stiff enough for the right amount of power transfer while the middling weight helps to either push power through the end of the stroke or to reef on the outside pedals in the loose fast turns. Fit is a smidge small but I prefer that so if you are in-between sizes it would be smart to size up. Overall a really good options for trail/enduro/all-mountain riding.

  • Size Bought: 44.5

Been a loyal Sidi guy for 17+ yrs. Tough to stray from Sidi when they fit like a glove and their durability is second to none. It was finally time to pull the trigger on a new set of Dominators, but decided I wanted something a little more flexible and "off the bike" friendly. The Terraduro seemed to check all the boxes for me, so went with the suggested one size up (normally a 43.5-44 and went with a 44.5). I'm about 15 rides in on this set and they have been awesome so far. Not quite the "fit like a glove" of the Sidis but super comfy. The one minor downside is they don't seem to play as nice with my Mallet Enduro pedals as the Sidis. Once in all good but at times I'm f**king around with these much more than I ever did with my Sidis.

Sweet Shoes

    I've been rocking these shoes for a few summers now and can't find much to complain about. They are super comfy and the soles allow me to walk around without much hesitation. They also provide decent protection from potential toe strikes, which has come in handy a few times. The construction also seems bomber - these haven't fallen apart at all.

    Definitely on the heavier side but these are beasts. I purchased the 45.5 and wear an 11 in most mens casual shoes and 11.5 in active shoes. These fit snug but will break in nicely. If you are worried about toe room i would 1/2 size up. Definitely happy with my purchase.

    Bitchin shoe - if they fit you

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    Overall this is a great shoe for trail / all mountain riding. The Vibram sole is stiff but not as stiff as most XC specific shoes. The Vibram sole also provides great traction for hike-a-bikes and all other walking related activities. Now on to the fit: I normally wear a size 9 street shoe but have a low volume foot. I ordered these in a size 42 which fit me well out of the box. After a few months of riding, I started ratcheting the straps way down to compensate for some heel-slip. Eventually I ran out of adjustment and had to get a different shoe as the next size down is too small. Like I said - it's a bitchin shoe but it might not be for you if you have a low volume foot or low instep.

    Purrfect MTB Shoe/Bad customer support

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Giro again confirms its solid and integral performance with the Terraduro. All kinds of experienced feet, from beginner trainer wheelers to advanced bikepackin' trail-rippers, each can seek challenges with this durable, comfortable, and straight up killer Vibram soled mtb shoe. Always the goto in my bike shed!

    One unfortunate issue that killed my experience, was the support of competitive cyclist peeps. They had me order a 46.5 from the normal 45-45.5 I usually wear. Finally, after a long 3 month trip, I got back home and tried on the Terraduros. They had a little room but it was comfy. After a week of road riding and getting a secure fit, they started to feel extremely large, 1 whole finger on the heel large. So these had to go back immediately! I spoke with a rep at CC and they pretty much told me they couldn't do anything for me, let alone exchange these great shoes for my previous size that I usually wear, due to the policy of CC or the mess up on their part. I spent $180 on a great made shoe, but ran into a fence with the people who sell them at Competitive Cyclist. I dont like how they handled this small situation, especially when it was totally a bad call on CC's part. It's Important to stand by your customer and get them the best shopping options and experience possible. Stick to your normal 1 size up with Giro, don't listen to rhetoric from newbie sale associates.

    Thanks for the review Lee!

    Our published return policy for used items is 30 days. Our Gearheads often make accommodations when a return request is made outside of that window. In this case, the order was placed in January 2016 and the Gearhead you spoke with was not comfortable taking them back.

    I'll reach out to you directly and we'll see what we can do to get you the right size.

    Solid Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 43

    I recently purchased these shoes and have been able to take them out a few times. So far so good!

    I did go up about a full size after reading some of the other reviews and I'm glad I did! I typically wear a size 9 in US mens shoes. I ended up buying a 43 and they fit great. I think the 42.5 would have been too small.

    They fit great and seem pretty durable so far! First ride in these I got pretty muddy. However, they cleaned up really easily. The Vibram sole really helped on the wet slick rocks.

    I would recommend these to anyone!

    Awesome fit for wider feet.

    • Size Bought: 40

    I have wider feet and always struggle to find shoes that fit me comfortably, these do the trick. They do run a little short, so I sized up a half size, and it's a perfect fit.

    They are stiff and so far have been a great riding shoe, but I'll have to see how they hold up in the next few months.
