Average rating: 5 stars DJ 4/8/17 Salt Lake City , Utah My ABSOLUTE #1 NEW FAVORITE SHOE.... This model is designed to make your feet feel safe and secure, and at the same time you can go to battle wearing them. The Inner sock is super dope.. your not having to tighten your laces super tight ya know, great looking shoe.... the sole of the foot have nice thread patterns so they will last longer than the cheeper shoe models. I wish the website has more 8.5. the EMPIRE G6 is worth paying 85$. mine have already lasted longer than the Herman's & Reynolds low vulc. VERY Impressed with his shoe.
