It seems everyone is talking about the incredible artwork on Bradley Wiggins’ custom designed Giro Empire SLX shoes; and who can blame them?
With a stunning colour combination, graphic novel style illustration all combined with the classy look of laced up leather these shoes are eye catching to say the very least.
These aren’t the first pair of Giro Empires for Wiggins. In fact he was wearing a Empires when he set his hour record. Wiggins revealed his latest Giro funky footwear ahead of the Tour of California. The design is inspired by multiple artists and you can find out all of the details behind the design from Cycling Weekly.
But here at Speeds we’re just going to sit in and appreciate the beautiful view that the shoes have to offer!
