The Good:

Big fan of these. They're comfortable so day to day usage is awesome in them. If you need a shoe to wear to work and just go on a lunch ride with, not have to worry about swapping shoes... these are rad. Or a shoe you can just go straight to the brewery with after... again... great shoe. They're plenty stiff for riding but not to stiff for walking. Reasonably Durable Grip is good Breathe well so they don't get too funky They look great.

The Bad:

I prefer the sole on the original jacket. Bit grippier. Sole wears out before the shoe does Toe Cap could be reinforced a bit.

Overall Review:

I have 4 pairs of these right now and 2 pairs of Chambers. I love Giro's shoes.

I generally buy a pair and where them to work. As they get a bit dirty I transition them to riding shoes. So I always have 2-3 pairs in rotation in various stages of wear. One stays in the car, one in the office. Etc. 

I run on 3 different flats. Diety T-Macs. Raceface Chester. Raceface Atlas. These stay planted pretty well on all of them. Usually if I slip a pedal it's my fault. In the TMAC I sometimes get stuck in an off position and have to lift my foot straight up to reposition. 

I'm running a different shoe right now for riding but I still wear Jackets on a casual basis a couple days a week. 

If it was up to me the only things I'd change would be to reinforce the toe a bit and go back to the old sole.
