Nothing can hold you down when you lighten up with the Empire SLX. With pro-level performance, ridiculously lightweight construction and unrivaled comfort right out of the box, the Empire SLX lets you fly in first-class style. To make a minimalist shoe that retains the supportive structure of the legendary Empire while advancing the style, Giro started with a one-piece ultralight monofilament Synchwire mesh upper designed around a classic laced closure to fit and feel like a second skin. Thermal-welded Teijin® TPU adds structural support exactly where it's needed, and a high-modulus Easton® EC90 SLX2 carbon fiber outsole provides ultimate stiffness-to-weight for power transfer. Giro's adjustable Super Natural Fit footbed system is the final touch, allowing you to customize arch support right out of the box for luxurious comfort and optimal pedaling efficiency.

Comfy and aero
by Ed
Competitive Racer

I bought these shoes after pouring over reviews for weeks. There were no negative reviews, and this one won't be either.

I'm always looking for an aero advantage and lace up shoes have been shown to be the best. They take a little longer to get into-- so tri-guys might want to keep that in mind.

The biggest and best surprise was how comfortable these shoes are! I usually worry about enough short rides to break in new shoes before an ultra event, but these were so comfy right out of the box that my first ride turned into 150 miles. And I didn't regret it.

The venting in these shoes is also great. Shoe covers will be needed a little earlier this year

Most comfortable cycling shoes I've ever owned
by Anonymous
Cycling Enthusiast

These shoes are comfortable from the moment you slip them on your feet. I was hesitant to buy them because I was unsure about having laces on cycling shoes. The fact is the laces and shoe material allow the shoe to wrap around your foot. The laces then tuck-in under a tab towards the front of the shoes. Having worn these shoes now for several thousand miles this year the laces have never come out from underneath the tab. The only negative about the shoes is that they scuff very easily. I found that out on the first ride and have been very careful since then with minimum issues.
