If you’re heading to the Whiskey Off-Road Race in Prescott this weekend, be sure to stop by the Giro and/or Backcountry.com booth and take a peek at the all-new Backcountry.com/Giro Empire MTB Shoe. The two brands have joined forces to launch the Giro Empire shoe in Backcountry blue. We first spotted the Empire shoe in bright, brilliant orange at Interbike last year sporing its retro-styled lace up design. The shoe is fitted with an Easter EC90 carbon outsole with aggressive lugs taking queues from Taylor Phinney’s winning road shoe.
If you want to snag a set of these babies you best act fast as we’re sure they’ll sell out quick. They will be available exclusively through Backcountry.com and CompetitiveCyclist.com starting June 1st. You can pre-order them online today for $299.95 in sizes 39-48 with half sizes also available. If you spot these in person send us over a photo and we’ll make you famous on Twitter and Instagram.
