The Contemporary Classic Empire Cycling Shoe. Made For Those Who Prefer Traditional Laces, A Lightweight And Stiff Carbon Sole, And A Direct Connection To The Pedals
The empire continues to redefine the boundaries of high-performance cycling shoes with classic, laced comfort, and style.
The iconic laced closure offers seven points of fit adjustment for unrivaled adjustment and comfort, and complements the perforated Teijin premium microfiber upper that wraps to the contours of your foot like no other cycling shoe. The Easton EC90 SLX carbon sole offers the light weight and stiffness needed for everything from Grand Tours to gran fondos, with ultra-low 6.5mm stack height for a direct connection to the pedals. And their adjustable SuperNatural Fit footbed lets you fine-tune the fit and arch support for an unmatched blend of performance and style.
Easton Engineered Outsole Plates – worked closely with the engineering staff at Easton to develop proprietary outsoles that provide the most direct, powerful connection to the pedals without compromising comfort. Using advanced modeling and proprietary fixturing in their extensive test lab, every outsole is engineered to provide ideal stiffness in 3 zones: Toe, Arch, and Heel, while maintaining the lowest possible weight and stack-height (as low as 6.5mm).
Supernatural Fit Sytem – A superb fit, with adjustable arch support to help optimize comfort and enhance pedaling efficiency.
Premium Teijin Samo Breathable Microfiber Upper – Teijin microfiber is widely considered to be the world’s finest. Made in Japan and engineered to provide the same supple feel of the finest natural leathers, it is durable and breathable yet resists moisture, stretching and discoloration.
X-Static – X-Static is a fiber made with a layer of pure silver, which is permanently bonded to the surface of a textile fiber. It is an antimicrobial fiber that is 100% natural that helps reduce odor and regulate heat.
