Developed for Taylor Phinney to race at Giro d'Italia and Olympic Games, the Giro Women's Empire W ACC Road Shoes bring retro style to the 21st century with a classic lace-up design and a minimalist look. Modern features include the revamped Easton EC90 ACC full carbon outsole that's nearly weightless, plus an ultra-low 6.5mm stack height for maximum power transfer. New one-piece Evofiber Microfiber upper is water-repellent, highly breathable and conforms to your foot like a second skin for effective energy output. SuperNatural Fit footbed, adjustable arch support, and injection-molded heel cup keeps the foot secure and stable during sprints and TT's. Lace retention system fits snugly and keeps laces out of harm's way. The Empire W ACC shoes redefine performance and style.
