I've put in quite a few rides on my empires now, with around five or so being 200+ km. This Saturday I decided to do a slightly longer ride here in the height of summer. Temps were around 35-36c in the shade and the humidity was just awful. Plenty of climbing (6500m of ascent). The empires performed really well. My feet got hot but no hotter than in my old shimanos. I didn't need to touch the laces once during the whole ride. The only complaint I have is that my bright pink laces got dirty. I ended up with 357km, no hot spots and a big smile on my face. Definite thumbs up for the empires so far.

I've been caught in the rain a few times, and yes, they do get wet, and they do stay wet. At least for a few hours.
Thankfully I have two pairs of the Empire so not a major issue for me, but others might feel this is not good.
Warning with the white Empires and small frames, they can scuff at the toe if you hit the wheel on a turn and push off.
