Xnetic Knit technology was developed for the specific needs of a cyclist. An internal TPU skeletal system provides support where you need it, while the knit offers suppleness for superior sock-like comfort. The upper is DWR-treated for water repellency and easy cleaning, and a TPU-reinforced toe and heel add durability and abrasion resistance. Plus, the style of the Empire E70 Knit is simply undeniable. Feel the difference of knit with the women's Empire E70 W Knit™ cycling shoes. The sock-like comfort, breathability, and support suits your cycling needs in a new way.
