The Giro Empire E70 knit road cycling shoes utilise the latest knit technology seen in other athletic footwear. Applied for the first time to performance cycling shoes the Empire™E70 Knit features Giro’s 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.

Mr Massafits a little large; Merlin is always fast in shipping
AndyI am a size 10 and these felt a little tight but now worn in these fit like a glove. Sole is great with good power transfer. Really like the look also - my new go to shoes!
RPVery impressed with these shoes, confortable but still with a hard carbon sole. They breathe very well as advertised and are perfect to train indoors. Can't comment how they are outside yet.. For me, same size as Shimano shoes.
Mr JonesVery Comfortable shoes, very lightweight and breathable, particularly well suited to the heatwave we're having here in Australia at the moment.
Mr MustafaNice shoes, size fit perfectly, very comfortable, carbon sole give the power needed to hit the road. Good price and quality.
AdrianSGreat shoes. Very stiff sole and probably the most comfortable cycling shoes I have ever had. It is important to highlight that these shoes are very well-vented, so they are appropriate for warm/dry conditions. Also they are not very easy to clean, but in those conditions that should not be a problem. Overall opinion: excellent choice.
Mr higuchiIt is a very good product. Because it is knit, it is easy to familiarize your feet and is comfortable. Recommended for those who enjoy long rides.
JohanComfortable, light and stylish! My favorite shoes by far.
Nick ChungNice fit and comfortable. Not as stiff as I would had liked but still good enough.
