No brand has endeavored to reprise the Golden Era of cycling quite like Giro has with its series of lace-up road shoes – albeit with a twist on technology and new materials.
Indeed, Giro’s previous lace-up shoes have not only served to delight the retro cycling masses, but they’ve garnered the interest of top pro riders along the way as well.
However, the company’s latest Prolight Techlace pushes the boundaries of lightweight and ventilation even further.
This time around, the ultra-light 300g Prolight Techlace shoes are made entirely in the USA, and they feature Giro’s Teijin synthetic material for the upper, which uses a unique mix of laces and velcro, along with their rigid TeXtreme carbon fiber sole. Giro even resorted to using titanium hardware to lighten things up a bit more too.
At $400, the Prolight Techlace road shoe is far from cheap. But, when you compare it to the cost of the competition, the price seems more than reasonable for a shoe that brings such a style and performance quotient along with it.
The Giro Prolight Techlace is available in half sizes from 39-48 and in three color options – white, red and black.
