Win a numbered pair of Giro Empire shoes and a Giro XAR

Posted by Caleb Smith on Thursday October 10 2013

Giro_EMPIREMTB_SELLSHEETOh my! Now I know not everyone likes camo, especially camo with fluorescent orange accents but I don’t need to tell you that orange and camo are the new cyan right now (which was the new black) and the folks at Giro are backing it hard. Giro’s NZ distributor has managed to grab a few pairs of the super limited edition Giro Empire MTB shoe, each pair is individually numbered from 1 to 400.  Now the Empire is one of the best selling Giro road shoes ever and this limited edition model is the only MTB incarnation of it. Its upper is made of the same Teijin material as the road shoe but they have mated that to the EC90 carbon sole from their top of the line XC Code shoe, to create something pretty unique and special. And we have a pair to give away! Actually we thought we’d make it even better and give away Giro’s new XAR colourway in the same camo so you get all colour co-coordinated (if you choose to wear them!) But because this prize is worth over NZ$500 we aren’t going to make it easy for you. Read on below for the how…

Inspired by the camo you are going to have really work for this very rad prize. To win we want you to head out (or in) with a buddy (or by yourself) and try to hide in plain sight. Then all you need to do is get a photograph of you camouflaged and hiding, and email it to us here with your shoe and helmet size. We’ll pick what we think is the best shot and send out some very cool prizes! I’ve even trawled the internet for you for you and found some inspiration! Deadline for entries is the 25th October.
