To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These shoes were bought for me as an early Christmas gift. I have not been able to use them as TWICE the clips have gotten jammed/stuck in the cycle pedal. The first time I had to take off my shoe and had to basically use all my strength to get it out of the cycle pedal. I then needed the gym's maintenance person to remove the clip.
I then attempted a second time to use them; I clicked into the bicycle and when I went to click out - the right shoe came out correctly; the left shoe came out correctly this time - but the clip was once again jammed in the pedal. I now have to wait again for someone in maintenance to remove the clip; and in the meantime, I have no spinning shoes to use. It is extremely different/difficult to do spinning with regular sneakers when you've used the proper shoes for 10+ years. The window to return these (purchased in August) is closed - so now I'm stuck with a defective shoe - that I am unable to use.
So I’ve ordered a THIRD pair of these shoes, and SURPRISE, these holes are defective as well. Such a waste. Just don’t buy these unless you want to end up almost a month later with three pair of non working shoes.
I’ve now ordered a second pair since the first pair were HUGE. However, the second pair, the left shoe has warped holes for attaching the cleats and I cannot get the any of the screws all the way in! I’m beyond frustrated and will now have to return a second pair, and buy a third pair! The right side attached fine, the left side obviously has a defect. Having to send back another pair because of a factory defect and wait on another refund when I still haven’t even received the first, and still needing to buy a THIRD PAIR is beyond frustrating.
I have no idea why these reviews from people are saying to size up and that they run small. I normally wear a 9 (40), ordered a 10 (41) because of the reviews and they’re WAY too big. Order the size you normally wear. I haven’t been able to try them out on a bike because I have to now wait for a return which is super annoying. Really wish I would have just ordered according to the site and not people who don’t know their shoe size!
These shoes from Giantnerd are a mess. When I originally ordered them, I was sent a defective pair. The holes for the cleats were not evenly aligned (one was significantly higher than the other), so if you attached the cleats and rode with them, you'd have a weirdly uneven ride. I exchanged them for the last available pair in my size, and had to pay to ship the defective ones back.
When I was finally able to wear the new pair, it took only 4 rides for these cheap, awful shoes to degrade to the point where they got stuck to the pedal of my bike so badly that the cycling studio had to remove the pedal and give it to me to take home. WTF. We got the cleat off the pedal, and the bottom of the shoe is basically melting away. Flakes of plastic are falling off.
I've contacted Giantnerd multiple times to request a refund and they have ignored me.
Buy different shoes!!!! These seem like a good deal but the quality is truly horrible.
I ordered the all in one shoe to ensure I would have every piece I needed without hassle. These shoe's showed up looking great until I finally tried to install the SPD cleats only to find not only was one missing, the one installed was not as advertised. Too boot I exceeded the return window, so in order to properly use these Ill have to order more parts and install myself. Order with caution and immediately double check all hardware against the advertised pictures.
These shoes are in no way true to size and are very cheaply made. I ordered my normal shoe size 7 (European 37). When they arrived and I tried them on I couldn’t even extend my big toe fully bc they were so small. I then ordered a 7.5 (European 38) and it was as if they sent me the exact same tiny shoe just with a 38 stamped inside. I then placed a 3rd order for a size 8 (European 39 - I’ve never been a size 8 in my entire life, even at 10 mos pregnant). While they 8’s somewhat fit (slightly too large) the top velcro eyelet was broken off. Very frustrating. What a hassle.
The fit of these shoes were great, they are a little on the wider side with is perfect for me since I have a wide foot. Everything was going great with the shoes until after about 2 months of use (3-4x/week) I started to notice in spin class that my feet were loose on the pedals. When I went to tighten them I noticed that the entire inside of the cleat (the part inside the shoe) was bent and could not be fixed. It did come with a 1 year warranty, so hopefully that won't give me any issues, but still a pain to go though! My only other complaint is that you can not walk around in these at all (from the lobby to spin room). The cleat sticks out about 3 inches off of the sole of the shoe where as others I have seen have a rim around the shoe to make it easier to walk in.
Whoever packed this didn’t include all the pieces. Plus it was supposed to be already assembled from what the description stated! I can’t even put them together because there’s nothing here to put them together with. Waited for these and missing parts and didn’t come as it was supposed to.
We had to order a second pair as the first had a defective screw they won’t go in. Same problem with the second pair...so we’ll be returning them both. Disappointed as the actually shoe portion fits well. I know it’s not me, I’m an experienced spinner/bike rider and have never had an issue with the screw like this. We will not be purchasing another.
I gave this a one star because although they fit well, after only using them 3 times, the two screws came out of the shoes because the Cason inside the shoe broke. Now, the screws won’t even work. There is nothing to put new screws into in order to hold the clips.
I returned it because it was so slippery to even take one step I almost slipped and fell. Also I didn’t like the hard bottom. This is not an indoor spin class shoe cuz the clips did not fit. Very disappointed ☹️
