Distributors Hotlines (Lapierre, Hayes, Manitou, Goodridge, Foes) have added Gaerne shoes to their catalogue.

Gaerne shoes, founded in 1962, are handmade in Italy in their Treviso factory. The company first started out producing Alpine footwear, later branching out to produce on- and off-road cycling footwear.

Gaerneā€™s mission is to produce quality shoes without compromise using the best available materials and concentrating on fit, comfort, durability and protection. Australian ex-MTBer and current top roadie Cadel Evans rides Gaerne shoes.
