The Giro Women's Empire E70 Knit Cycling Shoes features the new engineered Xnetic™Knit upper, which offers unparalleled comfort and breathability. Xnetic Knit technology was developed for the specific needs of a cyclist. An internal TPU skeletal system provides support where you need it, while the knit offers suppleness for superior sock-like comfort. The upper is DWR-treated for water repellency and easy cleaning, and a TPU-reinforced toe and heel add durability and abrasion resistance. Plus, the style of the Empire E70 Knit is simply undeniable.
