Giro Empire ACC Road Shoes
The Empire ACC is a lightweight and responsive performance shoe. The one piece upper, Easton unidirectional carbon sole and timeless styling result in a shoe that performs as well as it looks. Whether you’re a professional, keen amateur racer or avid climber, the Empire ACC won’t disappoint.
Using the latest in fabric technology, Giro has given us Evofiber™. Seams are eliminated to give you a shoe that’s exceptionally comfortable, extremely durable and remarkably light. Evofiber™ repels water and offers increased breathability to keep your feet in top condition.
Put aside your preconceived notions about laces on cycling shoes, if you will. There is no other closure method that’s as precise and customisable as laces. Seven points of contact allow the shoe to be fitted precisely to your instep. The Empire’s sport laces are designed to stay closed and can be neatly tidied away once tied.
The Easton EC90 ACC outsole is constructed from strong and light carbon fibre. This, combined with an ultra-low stack height, allows every last watt of power to be transferred straight to the pedals. Heel pads can be replaced when worn.
The insole is equally as impressive. Giro’s SuperNatural Fit System allows you to fully adjust the arch for the right amount of support for you. No moulding in ovens, simply tear off the arch and replace with the one that suits you.
A low heel gives your foot an optimal lock, to eliminate any inefficiencies and a tapered front gives your toes some ‘wiggle room’. X-Static fibers use natural silver to conduct heat and prevent any odour causing bacteria.
