Don't nitpick, these knit kicks are sick.
Bringing knit technology to the world of cycling, the Women's Giro Empire E70 Knit Road Shoe brings unparalleled comfort and breathability into the world of performance road cycling. Featuring a breathable, comfortable, and durable upper that's engineered specifically for the needs of cyclists, this shoe takes comfort to the extreme without compromising on performance.
While you're sure to have seen knit shoes around other athletic disciplines before, it's been slow to come to the world of cycling because of the intense needs that performance cycling and cyclists put on their shoes, but with Giro's Xnetic™ Knit upper these shoes are ready to go. Built around an internal TPU skeleton, the shoe's rigid support structure is then finished with Giro's DWR-treated Xnetic Knit for an incredible sock-like fit. The shoe is then capped off with TPU reinforcements at the toe and heel for added durability and resistance to cuts or tears. Of course, like the other Empire shoes, this one utilizes a traditional lace-up closure for a customizable fit.
Down below, the Empire E70 shoes feature the Easton E70 carbon composite sole for outstanding stiffness and power transfer. Constructed from unidirectional carbon fiber, Easton's sole is engineered for a direct connection with the pedal, and by extension the bicycle. This class-leading stiffness makes short work of getting your power to the pavement in no-time.
