Giro 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 unrivalled 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 Fondo’s, 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.
A Contemporary Classic Giro Empire Cycling Shoe
The benefits of Giro Empire Road Shoes are numerous. The traditional laced design was fine for some, but stiff carbon sole drivers created problems with excessive pedal shock during long rides. The new high-tech rubber outsole uses a perforated design to provide superior traction and a direct connection to the pedals for a light touch of control while you’re pedalling without being rigid. The rigid carbon sole also provides strong lateral stability for supreme walking and climbing performance, and a direct connection to the pedals means that even when you’re peddling fast, you won’t encounter that shock while your feet remain stable on the pedals.
The benefits of this new Giro Empire Road Shoes include a classic contemporary feel with a modern design. These road shoes are built upon a traditional design that’s been built upon for decades by bicycle companies like Giro. The company’s design team worked closely with professional cyclists to create a stiff shoe to provide support and stability while still having a soft, flexible, and lightweight feel that works well with any level of physical activity. If you’re ready to do whatever it takes to get where you’re going, the Giro Empire Road Shoes will give you the foundation that you need to get there.
