Giro Empire SLX Shoes

Lightest and sexiest road shoes I've ever had
Award WiNNER

With an almost unanimous verdict of 94% of reviewers recommending the Giro Empire SLX Shoes, the considerable efforts and technology Giro has put into creating these super-light shoes was well worth it.

While the standout feature is the feather-light weight (175g), many reviewers were extremely taken by the shoe’s striking looks. Kalun123 spoke for many, describing them as, “the lightest and sexiest shoes I’ve ever had”, while Spotter68 writes: “A very light and beautifully detailed performance shoe.”

The features are many-fold, but the highlights are the water repellent Evofiber mesh, the X-Static Fibre heat-conductive fabric, the super-stiff Easton EC90 SLX2 outsole, replaceable heel pads, sport laces closure system, and that they’re delivered with spare laces and a fibre travel bag.

Available in a range of sublime colours, black-silver, metallic charcoal, white-black, and ultraviolet-white, the only question is why you do you not already have a pair?

“Having ridden for over 30 years and tried many many shoes, these are genuinely the most comfortable “out of the box” shoes I’ve ever owned and are super light.” – Mikeeee
