Giro Empire Mens Cycling Shoe
THE EMPIRE CONTINUES TO REDEFINE THE BOUNDARIES OF HIGH-PERFORMANCE CYCLING SHOES WITH CLASSIC, LACED COMFORT AND STYLE.
The iconic laced closure offers seven points of fit adjustment for unrivaled adjustment and comfort, and complements the perforated Teijin® premium microfiber upper that wraps to the contours of your foot like no other cycling shoe. The Easton® EC90 SLX carbon sole offers the light weight and stiffness needed for everything from Grand Tours to gran fondos, with ultra-low 6.5mm stack height for a direct connection to the pedals. And our adjustable SuperNatural Fit footbed lets you fine-tune the fit and arch support for an unmatched blend of performance and style.
EASTON EC90 SLX2 CARBON COMPOSITE OUTSOLE. We worked closely with the engineering staff at Easton to develop proprietary outsoles that provide the most direct, powerful connection to the pedals without compromising comfort. Using advanced modeling and proprietary fixturing in our extensive test lab, every outsole is engineered to provide ideal stiffness in 3 zones: Toe, Arch, and Heel, while maintaining the lowest possible weight and stack-height (as low as 6.5mm).
PREMIUM TEIJIN SAMO BREATHABLE MICROFIBER UPPER. Teijin microfiber is widely considered to be the world’s finest. Made in Japan and engineered to provide the same supple feel of the finest natural leathers, it is durable and breathable yet resists moisture, stretching and discoloration.
SUPERNATURAL FIT KIT E¡WITH ADJUSTABLE ARCH SUPPORT. The Giro SuperNatural Fit System combines a cycling-specific footbed with an adjustable arch support kit. By simply choosing from any of the Low, Medium and High arch supports included in the kit, riders and fitters can independently adjust arch support to enhance fit and pedaling efficiency while reducing or eliminating common foot discomforts like hotspots, numbness and cramping. The system is available in Men’s and Women’s sizes and incorporates X-Static(R) fibers in the footbed to fight odors and bacteria.
X-STATIC. X-Static is a fiber made with a layer of pure silver, which is permanently bonded to the surface of a textile fiber. It is an antimicrobial fiber that is 100% natural that helps reduce odor and regulate heat.
