Giro Empire Knit Road Shoe
You've seen knit technology in athletic footwear, but you haven't seen it in cyclingÄuntil now. The Empire E70 Knit features our new engineered Xnetic Knit upper, which offers unparalleled comfort and breathability. Xnetic Knit technology was developed for the specific needs of performance cycling. An internal TPU skeletal system provides support where you need it, while the knit offers suppleness for superior sock-like comfort. The upper is DWR-treated for water repellency and easy cleaning, and a TPU- reinforced toe and heel add durability and abrasion resistance. Plus, the style of the Empire E70 Knit is simply undeniable.
