For that price you get two Boa dials, a micro-fibre upper and a carbon sole providing plenty of stiffness when you want get hard on the pedals.
Giro Factor Techlace road shoes were £299, now £199
Review: Giro Techlace shoes
Read more: Giro Factor Techlace review
With the Factor Techlace, Giro set out to create a shoe that found the perfect medium between comfort, performance and weight. It comes with one Boa Dial and a Velcro-lace setup so it’s easy to get foot hugging retention on the heel without hotspots across the top. We’ve reviewed these shoes and our favourite thing about these shoes was the comfort – it’s impressive with a race dedicated pair of shoes.
Shimano RP3 SPD-SL Road Shoe was £94.99, now £55.90
A pair of shoes which favours comfort over all out performance – these offer a Glass Fiber reinforced nylon sole, which will soak up a bit more road buzz than carbon but won’t be quite as stiff. There’s a padded tongue and a ratchet style closure with two Velcro straps. A size 40 tips the scales at 527g, and right now you can save 41 per cent across a range of sizes.
Giro Empire shoes were £259, now £199
Review: Giro Empire ACC shoes
Another pair of superb Giro shoes that have now got a tidy discount on them. They’re amazingly good looking, keeping all of the chic that we’ve come to expect from Giro shoes. Those good looks are matched by the performance ethic that these shoes embody, and the Easton carbon sole keeps things stiff underfoot whilst the laces offer comfort.
