Your calves are insane (nohomo)!

I've been riding mine now for a couple hundred miles and I love them. I am coming from a pair of Bontrager XXL or whatever they're called. I always got hot spots with the bontragers due to the latch system. The laces of the Empires works well for me in that regard. I have yet to feel any hot spots. Also, I am noticing that the black leather is very easy to keep clean and looking fresh.

Love the shoes - I highly recommend them.

I have the 2013 version of the Empires. I initially bought them in winter so I did not notice any problem with ventilation. They are comfortable, the laces are amazing and people compliment their awesomeness.

Fast forward now to June, and with 33C degree temperatures and 80-90% humidity, these shoes seriously bake my feet and the amount of moisture they accumulate is a serious problem now, even riding at night. I have switched to my backup pair of Giro Privateer MTB shoes and I can at least feel airflow on my toes.

Any indication that the 2014 version are any better with ventilation? The pictures seem to indicate the same amount of air holes. However, I've purchased a pair of Fizik R3s in the meantime. They seem to have a superb amount of nylon mesh which means good ventilation (hopefully).

As a current owner of prolights, and a fan of the empire style, I am very interested in the 2014 empires. Lucky for me, we are planning on making them our team shoe for next year. 8)
