We’re often told that the best shoes for road cycling are the stiffest, lightest most technologically advanced R&D experiments we can lay our hands on. You only have to look at the most expensive shoes of recent years to see carbon fibre exoskeletons, and custom woven uppers on shop shelves. While these features might provide a helping hand if you’re racing a grand tour, for most of us there are shoes that exist that are too stiff and unnecessarily light for our needs. Enter the Giro Savix II, and evolution of the tried and tested mid-range Savix and an answer to the needs of the everyman or woman.
