Giro Empire shoes get a mountainbiking-specific version


After the success of the old-fashioned, but high-tech Empire road cycling lace shoes, Giro decided to humor mountainbike fans by offering the pair in a such specific version.

If the camouflage upper body doesn’t make you fall for the shoes instantly, it’s good to know that the same performane features of the road pair are present on the Empire MTB model as well. Therefore, the Easton unidirectional carbon sole, X-Static® Footbed with adjustable arch, and X-Static fibers that use natural silver to provide heat conductive and anti-microbial properties feature on the new model.

Like the initial Empire road shoes, these will also be offered in a limited edition of 400 units. The first 50 were already offered by Giro, so you’d better hurry up if you plan to add them to your cycling equipment collection.
