Found: Electric Blue Limited Edition Backcountry.com x Giro Empire MTB Shoes
…and they’re back. Apparently Backcountry teased these a bit to early, but now they’re ready to roll. Er, pedal.
In conjunction with the Whiskey Off Road even in Prescott AZ, Backcountry.com has unveiled their take on the Giro Empire MTB. Thanks to a partnership between the brands, Giro has produced a limited edition high performance XC shoe in Backcountry blue, of course. Utilizing the Empire’s lace up design, the shoe is fitted with an Easton EC90 carbon outsole with aggressive lugs to take the Empire from Taylor Phinney’s race winning road shoe to a high performance off roader.
Backcountry edition Empires will be a limited release that are sold only through backcountry.com and competitivecyclist.com starting on June 1st. Pre-orders can be made now, retail’s $299.95 and sizes are 39-48 with half sizes also available. More pics of the kicks below…
