Giro Empire ACC cycling shoes | GregoryWest

The next step in updating my cycling kit is a new pair of shoes, and I can’t stop drooling over the Giro Empire ACC – simply put, they are gorgeous. Granted, the lacing system might not be as quick in transition as Velcro or a ratchet, but it does promise an infinitely adjustable fit. This shoe completely rings my Pavlovian bell – a timeless design that would be at home in any black-and-white Le Tour photo, with all the benefits of modern-day technology like a highly-breathable Evofiber upper, and a full carbon sole. I think it would go quite nicely with my Rapha Classic Jersey, non?
