Giro Alpinedur...The perfect solution for cyclists who will not let bad weather...
Good but sizing is a challenge
Posted by Frank on Jan 17th 2017
I purchased these from as winter cycling shoes for riding in Chicago. This will be my first winter attempting to ride in January and February. Obviously looking for something warm and waterproof. These shoes look great but I feel that they are too low in the back and too narrow. The laces also are not as convenient as shoes with the BOA fasteners that other shoes feature. I went up a size from 46 to 47 (usually a US Size 12) and they were still a bit tight with thicker socks. I ultimately returned them and went with the Specialize Defrosters instead. These would be great in a wider width.
Wisconsin Winter Update
Posted by Kyle on Dec 14th 2016
I wrote my first review last winter before the temps really started to plunge. Over the last year, I've only worn these boots when the temps are above 20. Anything below that, I've found them inadequate. I would not classify them as a true Midwest Winter cycling boot. If your feet run cold, definitely size up to wear thicker socks. Also, if you do any fat biking on groomed singletrack, the cleat will become useless. The recessed pocket for the cleat packs with snow and freezes to the metal cleat. I also went through both the red and black laces provided in the first month of ownership. They are cheap and will tear. They are not meant for the eyelets used on this boot. I switched to Danner brand boot laces and they still look new after a year. Overall, it's still a great looking boot and handles most things you can throw at it. They will keep your feet toasty indoors after your ride, and during if the temps are above 20F (with proper socks). They are fairly comfortable to walk in, but you still will hear the cleat hit the floor/ground with every step.
Super warm for winter riding

These boots have worked out great so far! They keep my feet both warm and dry -- and it doesn't even matter what socks I'm wearing! The boots come with the option of bright orange super visible laces or the more boring black laces. As far as sizing -- I ended up being a 41 and am usually a 40 in regular bike shoes. I'm very happy with my purchase and they are definitely worth the price tag!
Giro Alpineduro 4 week review
Posted by Kyle on Nov 6th 2015
I purchased these cycling boots in early October for my Wisconsin weather commutes through the fall/winter. Overall, I'm pretty satisfied with the boots for the price. I was able to get them from bikeshoes.com for ~$150 and 2-day free shipping which is a steal. Aesthetically, I love these boots. The retro-hiker design looks great on the way in to work, on the rails, around the office, and at the bar. I was wearing shoe covers at this time last year for added warmth as the morning temps are between 30-40F, but the Alpineduro's have kept my feet nice and toasty. I usually wear a 44 (10.5), but bumped up to a 45 (11) because I heard they run a little small, which is true. The toebox is a little tight, but ends up loosening up a bit over time. I can wear a wool hiking sock comfortably, but anything thicker gets tight. If you want to wear thick socks, I'd recommend a whole size increase. Over the past 4 weeks, I've been in temps in the 20's, the 70's, and in the pouring rain. So far, the boots keep my feet warm in the 20's, but anything over 60F they start running pretty hot. I wouldn't buy these as a dedicated mtb boot for all season use. I also wouldn't wear these alone in the pouring rain. They are very water resistant, but not water proof. The lace up design let's water in over time. The lacing system is one of the reasons why this boot looks so good, but has it's downfalls compared to other cycling boots. It's harder to get the boot tight to your foot, and it definitely takes longer having to lace your boot instead of buckling/racheting/cinching. However, I purchased these because they are the best looking boots on the market, and the laces are a large part of the aesthetic. If you don't like lacing, do not buy them. I will be interested to see how long I can wear these into the winter. I would imagine they would be OK down to 15-20F on rides less than an hour. Only time will tell! I'll post a longer term review once I get into the depths of winter.
