Collaboration is the spice of life, or something, so when Giro teamed up with Easton to make the Trans E70 Shoe, your footwear possibilities got a little more flavorful. Easton’s renowned for its carbon-fiber expertise, which it brought to bear on the EC70 sole, a carbon-composite offering that’s at once lightweight, powerful, and comfortable. It’ll help you put plenty of power into the pedals without killing your feet, and is even decked out with a replaceable walking pad, so your shoes don’t meet an unnecessarily early end. The upper’s killer, too. It’s made with Evofiber, a microfiber polyester that was designed by Japanese wizards Teijin to have a top-shelf durability-to-weight ratio, and has perforations that help your feet stay cool and dry on the road. The toe is reinforced, the design is ergonomic, and the hook-and-loop straps team up with the ratcheting instep closure to lock your foot down snugly and comfortably. To finish things off, Giro included its SuperNatural Fit Kit, which lets you customize the footbed to your exact specs, and treated the lining with Aegis, an antimicrobial agent that prevents funk from taking over your shoes.
