My coworker has them. I wore Empires for a couple weeks and though they didn't fit my feet, they're built like fucking tanks. They have a similar fit to Salomon just a smidge wider overall. Like in between Salomon and Burton. They're built super well and will last fucking forever.
Be warned, they're bulky. My 9's had the footprint of a 10. Not the best I know, but they legitimately will last longer than most.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
