The Empire™VR90 is one of the lightest options available on dirt and sets the standard in high-performance off-road shoes. Highlights include a lightweight laced one-piece upper for unrivalled comfort, an Easton® EC90™full carbon outsole and molded Vibram® rubber tread for relentless grip. The upper is made of our breathable Evofiber™ synthetic upper by Teijin® for superb fit and support that won’t stretch out with wear or weather. Our adjustable SuperNatural Fit footbed lets you fine-tune the fit and arch support, for maximum pedalling efficiency.
Evofiber™ takes the best attributes of mesh and microfiber, and fuses them into a single fabric that repels water and improves breathability throughout the shoe. By eliminating the extra seams and adhesives required to insert mesh panels, the durability, comfort and weight of our shoes can all be dramatically improved. Evofiber™ also holds shape exceptionally well, and is fast drying and easy to clean.
EASTON® CARBON COMPOSITE OUTSOLE
Unidirectional carbon fiber outsole is engineered to provide a direct connection with the pedal, thanks to class-leading stiffness that puts full effort into forward motion

Just wee bit heavier than most road shoes and one of the lightest spd shoe around. The material used on this pair definitely explains the price tag to the the VR90. I particularly like the laces because of the balanced top support once the shoes is laced up. The feet feels really well supported and secured with the feeling of the top layer wrapping around the feet. The sole is stiff and excellent power transmission, no hot spot problem for me. Overall opinion, its put on and forget about it - top grade.
I've used the GIRO EMPIRE VR90's twice now and couldn't be more pleased. Fit is true to size - maybe on the snug side with the option of adapting arch support which is great feature for my high arches. Laces are easy to use and pressure distribution much better than velcro/BOA combo on previous. No issues with laces untieing. Superstiff yet comfortable - used them the day after I received them in a 4h endurance XC race. Easy to clean although I haven't enocuntered mud yet. Supplied with an extra pair of laces (black) in the smart little shoe bag.
