Giro making shoes? Where do you mount the cleat?

Have you seen the new shoes from Giro?

http://www.giroshoesonline.com

Where do I mount the cleats? Looks like just active shoes so far.

looks like a decent touring type shoe (at least the Gavia) no cleats, clips etc.
good for clips and straps without the cleat I would imagine.
BTW not the same Giro as the helmet manufacturer.

As awagner said, they are not intended to be cycling shoes. They are, however, licensed from the Giro that we all know and love.

Really nice designs. I wonder if Zappos will be carrying them.
I didn't see any mention about SPD compatibility. That seems odd coming from a cycling company.
Really nice looking shoes, however.

Giro Shoes rock! When are they coming out with SPD compatible shoes? I just got my Ollie G.'s in. Makes me want to dust off my skateboard. These are some cool kicks:
