The Giro Empire VR90 is the type of cycling shoe that i think has a great balance of performance of being usable for any type of cycling any time of the year. A Vibram rubber tread means no slipping on wet ground and the carbon outsole gives it stiffness for good pedalling performance. SPD compatibility is great and I love the look too, orange lacing and a black synthetic upper look great. Visit their site for the full details on the Giro Empire VR90.
The next shoe from Giro is the Republic LX. A leather version of the classic looking Republic. I think i’d need to wear a suit to wear these. More photos should be arriving on the Giro site soon.
