HOW DO I ADJUST THE ARCH SUPPORT IN GIRO SHOES?

If your shoes feature a footbed with a non-adjustable arch, you can purchase our SuperNatural Fit Kit as an upgrade, and swap out the footbeds which provide a more customised fit and support for comfort and efficiency.

If your shoes are equipped with our adjustable SuperNatural Fit Kit Insoles, you can choose from the three different arch supports supplied with the kit to customise the fit and feel of the shoes to meet your needs:

  • Large arch support = maximum height and support
  • Medium arch support = medium height and support
  • Small arch support = lowest height and support

 

We recommend that you start by choosing the arch support that most closely matches to the contours of your arches or the insole of your existing cycling shoes, and provides you with the most comfortable fit. You should consult with your local bicycle fit expert to tune your fit for maximum comfort and performance, especially if you experience significant or consistent pain while riding.

To Start

Start by trying the shoe with the installed Medium (orange color) arch support, which works well for a majority of riders. You may want to ride with the stock setting to see how it feels during a normal ride.

To Adjust the Arch Support

To change the level of support, simply remove the insole from the shoe and peel off the arch support attached to the bottom of the insole. Then install a different arch support based on your desire for more or less arch support.

Arch Too High

If the arch support presses uncomfortably into your foot or if you are experiencing any lateral discomfort (on the outside edge of your feet), try a lower arch support.

Arch Too Low

If you are experiencing cramping or hot spots under the feet, or the arch of your foot feels unsupported or flat, try a higher arch support. Once you’ve set the arches to your preferred level of support, we recommend that you take the extra arch supports along on a test ride in case you want to make changes once you’re on the bike.

Compatibility with Custom Orthotics

Giro shoes are designed to accommodate a wide range of fit adjustments; however, we cannot guarantee the fit with custom orthotics. We advise you to work with your orthopedist and/or a professional bike fit technician if you are considering the use of custom orthotics with Giro shoes.
