expired Giro Apeckx Road Cycling Shoes - $69.99 + $9 Postage (Were $199) @ Torpedo 7

60

I've never worn these shoes and I think Giro has a reputation for fitting thinner feet. This looks like a good price if you are in the market for some road shoes. Maybe you've been inspired by the tour de France and want to get out and train up for Around the Bay etc. These have the Shimano 3 hole pattern on the base for pedal cleats. Nylon sole, no carbon but still looks like a great price for some brand name shoes with a ratchet closure, normally only velcro closure shoes at this pricepoint. Other shops online all seemed to price these way over $100, the RRP is probably a bit steep but other places I found seemed to have them around the $160 ish mark.

    You are cycling, not skiing or skating. I think the buckle is a gimmick and velcro is better, easier to adjust.
    (and the above shoe is 2/3 straps velcro anyway)

    How does this shoe look for only $36 ?

      I love the buckle close on mine, give 'em another click once your feet warm up and you're good to go :)

        I second this! I have currently got one pair of velcro close and one of the buckle close shoes, and the buckle is soooo much better.

          Why is that? I suppose I must be just used to velcro. Have only tried a buckle in the shop.
          The buckle is good for getting extra tight, but I don't want that on a bike.

          I like it cause I can click to the same position every time, its robust, velcro always wears out over time. I dunno i just like it, doesn't seem to be a gimmick but likewise I'd be open to a velcro only shoe….

          @manic: It makes a nice clicking sound…hehe….no really, it just feels more secure I guess. Foot feels a bit more locked in, but that might simply be because the actual shoe fits better. My buckle ones are the dhb carbon ones, nothing fancy, but I like them. As you know, cycling is all in the mind, so maybe its a psychological benefit anyway, nothing more than that! I THINK they give me an advantage!
          Its funny, some of the really cheap velcro shoes are actually some of the lightest too…which is pretty cool.

          lol.. buckles… so 2010! Try the new round twisty lock mthingy! Sidi Tecno? :P

      I find the buckle easier to adjust 'on the fly' (ie whilst cycling). I can normally reach down carefully and either give another click or let a click out without stopping if my feet start to hurt or if they feel too tight. I reckon it would be harder to undo the velcro and re-do to a slightly looser fit, all whilst cycling.

        With velcro I just unzip, flex the foot and fasten. All done by feel very quickly. But I can see now that a buckle works just as well.

    Are these shoes suitable for normal pedals? Or are they for clipless pedals?

    • +1 vote

      These are specifically for clipless pedals. Do not buy them for normal pedals as your mums runners will give you more grip than these.

      Normally used with "clipless", but old-style toe-straps are good too.

      They should be usable with rubber pedals (not steel) , not that anyone would.
