Giro delivers one of the lightest road shoes ever with their women’s Empire ACC. An EC90 carbon sole, made by Easton, makes the Empire ACC stiff and lightweight with an incredible ability to transfer power to the the pedals. The upper is a breathable Evofiber microfiber designed to wrap around the foot and is perforated for further ventilation. Giro dips back in time to equip the Empire with shoe laces, proving that they are still the lightest way to secure shoes to feet. On the inside you’ll find a Giro Supernatural footbed with adjustable arch support and comfortable padding. All of this adds up to just over 215 grams and makes the women’s Empire ACC from Giro a lightweight champion among road shoes.
