Gaerne Cycling Shoes History

Gaerne is a shoe and boot manufacturer from Italy. It makes specialist products including boots for motorcycle riding, boots and shoes for walking, and cycling shoes. It is a respected brand in the industry, with Gaerne shoes worn by many of the world's top cyclists.

The company is based in Maser which is in the Veneto region of Italy. This region is the home of the world famous Italian sports shoe manufacturing industry as a number of other brands are also located there including Diadora and Sidi. About 70 percent of sports shoes produced in Italy come from this region.

Gaerne was founded in 1962 by shoe designer Ernesto Gazzola. The name Gaerne come from his name - the first two letters of his second name and the first four letters of his first name.

The shoes Gaerne produces have an obvious Italian style, but the main focus is on quality. That means Gaerne shoes are technically innovative, reliable, and comfortable to wear. They are also made from high quality materials.

All research and development work as well as design and quality control is carried out in-house by Gaerne to ensure cutting edge design and consistent levels of quality across the range. A wide selection of cycling shoes from that range is available on Bike Exchange, the marketplace for everything bike.

In addition to producing cycling shoes, Gaerne is also involved in the sport of cycling through a number of sponsorships.
