Gaerne GRW GP boots, £249.99 in MCN Shop
Miles covered/time: 3000 miles/28 months
What’s good? These are my second pair of Gaerne boots since 2006 – they’re the perfect fit for my feet. The vents on this particular model mean my feet are always comfy and never sticky with sweat. The floating system at the rear supports the ankle and prevents any twisting, but allows plenty of movement, making them comfy off the bike as well. The elasticated Velcro fastener makes getting the fit just right simple. Without a doubt the best boots I’ve ever worn.
What’s not? A screw fell out of the floating system of my first pair, but this pair has been excellent.
