Taking design cues from the golden era of cycling, the Giro Men's Empire ACC HV+ Shoe forgoes messy dials and cluttered straps for the clean aesthetic and seven-point adjustability of a traditional lace-up design. However, just because it's inspired by an era where wool jerseys and lace-up kicks were all the rage doesn't mean it's lacking on new-school tech.

It's available in both full and half sizes, so you can achieve the glove-like fit desired for besting PRs on the road and dethroning the competition at your local crit series. Designed to hug your foot like a glove without deforming over time, the Evofiber upper is comprised of a breathable microfiber material with perforations that exhaust built-up heat in warmer conditions. This supportive upper is bolstered by the seven-point lacing system, complete with metal eyelets up top that prevent excess stretching where additional pressure is exerted by the laces.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
