Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous These are only my second pair of cycling shoes, previously used a pair of spd diadora mtb shoes which were a touch on the small side....School boy error!
When spending this sort of money I wanted a good fit, I'm a uk size 9 so ordered a 44 a uk 10. There is plenty of space in these and the adjustment straps are superb and fit like slippers.
I ordered them in reflex color and after placing the order looked at more images on the web, I was slightly worried as they look more grey on other images. I was not disappointed when they arrived. They are the mutts nuts! They stand out from any other shoes you've ever seen.
(I'm using them with a pair of shimano spd sl pedals)
I wouldn't hesitate to buy another pair of Gaerne shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great shoe
I've recently taken delivery of these in the Reflex colourway and am very impressed. My other shoes are Specialized BG Sports and, whilst entry level, are incredibly comfortable. I would have been quite happy sticking with them for eternity.
A recent review in Cycling Plus turned my head to these shoes from Gaerne though and I was keen to investigate. Although they look a dull grey colour in the pics here and in low light, get them in brighter light and the entire exterior (straps aside) lights up, as it's coated in reflective material. They look stunning and have already drawn interest from non-cyclists and cyclists alike.
Most importantly, they are very comfortable too. A nicely raised arch on the inner sole hugs my foot and adjustable and security from the ratchet-strap is good. The outsole feels much stiffer than on my Specializeds, although the overall show last is slightly narrower, which I belive may be a common feature of Italian road shoes.
All in all, I am delighted with my purchase and highly recommend them. They'll come into their own during these dark, winter months as well as summer time dusk rides.
