Introducing Reflective Footwear

Giro is bringing reflectivity into their footwear collection in an eye-catching way that helps keep you visible on the streets. Both the Empire ACC and the Republic LX are now offered in a new colorway with an innovative reflective coating built into Giro’s proprietary EvoFiber microfiber upper. The upper glows brightly when hit by light, such as streetlights or car headlights, helping you to be seen as you ride into the night.

The Republic LX Dark Shadow Reflective shoe was announced on August 26th as the recipient of the prestigious Eurobike Award 2015. Just five years after launching their line of footwear, Giro has received a total of 3 Eurobike Awards for their shoes. The Republic LX Reflective was recognized for its unique blend of style, functionality, and heightened visibility.

The Empire ACC continues to redefine high-performance cycling shoes with the new Silver Reflective option. Marc Marino tested the reflective Empire ACC shoes at the 2015 Brooklyn Red Hook Crit, and you definitely can’t miss him in the pack, or on the streets.

The Eurobike Award winning Republic LX Dark Shadow Reflective combines a supple, perforated microfiber upper with a stout nylon outsole for great pedaling efficiency and high-traction walking pads for stable footing on roads, sidewalks and gravel when off the bike.

“It is a great honor to once again receive the Eurobike Award,” said Giro Footwear Product Manager Simon Fisher. “We are proud that the distinguished jury has recognized our efforts to enhance the ride. As more people embrace the mobility and freedom of riding in their daily life, the Republic LX Reflective is another step forward, marrying form and function to provide riders with a stylish option that transitions from the bike to the office, and from the city streets to the gravel roads.”
