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.

I've purchased a number of different brands of shoe to use with cyclo-cross over 20 + years and they didn't fit quite right, were heavy/bulky. I've been searching for a shoe that would mold comfortably with my foot, be stiff and yet light. That's what I found with the VR90. I was hesitant about the laces thinking they would not be secure enough but there's no worries about it. By far the best shoe I've ever purchased for off-road/cx. Might just get a Giro shoe for road.
