The Giro Trans E70 shoes perform very well for their mid-range price. They are incredibly comfortable, well ventilated and look good – making these an excellent set of shoes if you’ve got £160 to spend.
Giro have become well known for their shoes, not least thanks to the lace-up Empire (£229.99) and Empire SLX (£249.99) shoes. Those flagship models may steal the limelight but the Trans E70 shoes show Giro can certainly deliver on quality at lower price points.
The upper is made from a microfibre material called Evofibre, which has a slight shine to it (at least in the neon yellow version tested) and that makes it easy to wipe clean when required. The upper is perforated throughout, which creates a good level of ventilation and airflow through the shoe.
