The women's-specific Giro Empire E70 W Knit Road Shoe brings knit upper technology to the world of cycling. Providing unmatched breathability and comfort, this shoe features a durable water repellent (DWR) treatment that adds water resistance for further protection. With a traditional lace-up closure and a modern fit and finish, these shoes walk the line between the past and the present, while providing future-proof performance.
Starting with the Xnetic™ Knit, the upper of this shoe brings knit fabric to the world of high-performance cycling shoes. An internal TPU skeletal system provides the rigid structure on which the highly breathable knit fabric wraps around. This knit offers the perfect balance between suppleness, breathability, ventilation, and protection. Outside, TPU reinforcements are added to the toe and heel to provide enhanced resistance and durability.
Down below, Giro went with the industry-leading Easton E70 carbon fiber sole. Featuring a unidirectional carbon fiber construction, the E70 was engineered for high-output cycling, providing instantaneous power transfer that enhances the rider-bike connection. Inside, the molded EVA footbed supports the foot, providing natural arch support.
