Giro Empire SLX Cycling Shoes 2015 Review

The Giro Empire SLX combines an old-school lace-up look with 21st Century technology in what is a thoroughly up-to-date design. The first edition Empire was designed in conjunction with BMC Racing rider Taylor Phinney, with Sir Bradley Wiggins among the riders to also wear the shoe, but it was always a little on the portly side.

This latest SLX version has seen the original Empire go on a diet, dropping the weight to just 175g per shoe for a size 42.5. The Giro Empire SLX combines an ‘Evofiber SL’ one-piece upper made from a breathable microfibre with an ‘Easton EC90 SLX2’ high-modulus carbon fibre sole, said to be Giro’s stiffest yet, to ensure fit and function are equal to form.
