Go ahead, take a second look. The Empire VR70 Knit is unlike any mountain bike shoe you've ever seen. It features Giro's newly engineered Xnetic Knit upper, which offers unparalleled comfort and breathability, with a bonded TPU exoskeletal system to provide support where you need it. The upper is DWR-treated for water repellency and easy cleaning, while a rubber toe guard and bonded TPU heel increase durability and abrasion resistance. A closed stretch-knit ankle cuff provides superior comfort, additional support, and protection from skree out on the trail. All of this is built on top of a stout Easton EC70 carbon fiber sole that offers pro-level stiffness, and a tough, molded Vibram rubber outsole that provides protection and grip when you're off the bike.
