Wow. Just wow. It’s pretty tempting to spring on these, especially since my new cross bike is going to be this color! See more at Backcountry.

    Do you like them enough to wear them more than Terraduros?

      My qualm: no Vibram on these. My new Vibram empire MTB shoes are amazing…

      I wish they had size 47 in stock. I like bright shoes! Makes it easier for your friends to see you up ahead in the woods. ;-)

    I know people have said it, but man the Empires look just like a soccer shoe, especially this one with the studs that off-set white

    …Hmmmm nice shoe – but a little color rip-off of Shimanos XC90 – allready introduced last year….
