    Shoe Decision - Giro Privateer or Specialized Comp MTB?

    Giro Privateer
    Specialized Comp MTB

    Both shoes seem to fit well, and both are roughly $150 at various LBS locations in town. Looks are roughly a wash as well, IMHO.

    I can't decipher the specs between the two, not sure if one breathes better (Houston is where I live/ride), or if one will last longer than the other.

    So I come to the fine folks here in search of knowledge and opinion... Let me know which you would choose and why!

    Thanks in advance.

    If you can't try them on in advance, which is always the key for me, then flip a coin. Have owned both brands, multipul pairs, and they have all been nice.

    Just to echo rockymtbiker, they're both good brands (IMO). If there are no good reviews on this site, it will probably end up being a crap-shoot anyway, unless you can test them.

    Go with your gut!
