Ironically, these turned up at the exact moment I got home from a ride where I managed to split my old Shimano shoes in half. Arrived exactly when Merlin said they would! Few rides in and they are performing well. Comfortable and good power to pedal exchange. Sizing wise, I had to go for one size higher than normal as I was warned that they are a little on the narrow side. 48s fit my normally UK size 11.5 feet perfectly, but I do have wide G fitting feet. No Cleats in the box but luckily, I have loads of spares. Price was excellent. Have used Merlin a lot over the years and have always had good service and products.
Fit and finish is ideal. The shoes fit as sized, a bit snug, but not enough to jump down a size. Cleat installation was a breeze. I am running these on a single speed/fixed gear set up to MASH. the soles are stiff enough for hill climbing and the engagement with my Crank Brothers Candy 2's is perfection. I will update after a couple hundred miles with longer term riding data.
Great shoes, the insoles could be better, but really great after I installed the good Giro insoles. Thanks Merlin!
These MTB shoes fit just as great as another pair of road Giros I have. Super comfortable, efficient because of stiff sole. BOA works great. The only concern I have is about how BOA survives minor crashes given its position on the side of the shoes - time will tell.
Typical Giro quality and fit. If you've never worn Giro shoes before it might pay to check some out in person or have a look at the high volume options if you often have to size up shoes. These have been perfect so far, can't beat these features and quality at this price
