Giro Empire VR70 Knit Mountain Bike Shoes


The Giro Empire VR70 Knit mtb shoes are a new approach to off-road footwear. The Empire™VR70 Knit is unlike any mountain bike shoe you’ve ever seen. It features our new engineered Xnetic™Knit upper, which offers unparalleled comfort and breathability, with a bonded TPU exoskeletal system to provide support where you need it. The upper is DWR-treated for water repellence and easy cleaning, while a rubber toe guard and bonded TPU heel increase durability and abrasion resistance. A closed stretch-knit ankle cuff provides superior comfort, additional support and protection from skree out on the trail. All of this is built on top of a stout Easton® EC70 carbon fibre sole that offers pro-level stiffness, and a tough, moulded Vibram® rubber outsole that provides protection and grip when you’re off the bike.

Not light but soft material is comfortable. Hard toe area needs some breaking in.
Very nice shoes good price ! With very comfortable feeling
Comfortable. I usually wear a 42-43 (depending on the brand) and went with a 44 based on sizing recommendation. A 43 might have fit but would have been close.
Light and comfy. A bit more snug than my strapped and buckled giro but only done 120km in them. Hopefully they'll be more and more comfortable. They looks nice when not riding as well.
Excellent shoe, very comfortable fit.
I am a somewhat broad foot of a typical Japanese.Usually, Shimano shoes are just 43 sizes, North Wave shoes are 43 sizes and slightly smaller sizes. Sneakers are wearing 28 cm of New Balance. I purchased 45 sizes this time. The toes are too much, but the width was just right. Although knitted material, the part of the ankle is stretchy, the shoes themselves are solid and there is no feeling that the legs move in the shoes. As this series is solidly made, it may be 1 to 2 larger size than usual.
