Gaerne might not be the first name that comes to mind when seeking out some high-end cycling shoes, but it should. Founded in Italy in 1962 by Ernesto Gazzola, Gaerne still builds shoes in the old world way using the skills and traditions of expert craftsmen and are constructed using modern materials.
