Gaerne GX-1 Boots Review

by - verified purchaser
These boots were more comfortable then every boot I tried at my local store in the under $300 range. I haven't owned motorcycle boots before but these seem to fill my needs for flexibility and comfort. It did seem like the size was right but maybe a little loose in the heel area. The only gripe I have is on the inside ankle with a forward lean there is a pinch point. It may get better as they break in more. They have been on an 80 mile mix of single track/2 track/dirt roads with good results.

Gaerne manufacturers some of the best motorcycle boots available, and their flagship models in both the street and off road categories rival the best in the world. Gaerne is unique, though, in that they pay as much attention to their entry level models as they do they're flagship models. The features of the GX-1's aren't as fancy versus the SG12's, and they don't have quite the level of all out comfort that the SG10's possess, but the quality of workmanship and attention to detail is uncompromised. These boots are real nice.

FYI for our overseas customers, like the React boot, the GX-1 is available with a Goodyear welt type sole. While there is also a molded sole version and soles with heavier tread available abroad, they are not available here in the US.

The GX-1 is available in a black or a white color way, and in sizes seven to thirteen. As per Gaerne's usual, the fitment is accurate to a professional grade foot measuring device, like one found at a shoe store. I found these narrower, though, than Gaerne's other three models. Not just in the foot, either, but up passed the ankle, as well. So, if you have wider feet, or more pronounced ankle bones, you're going to want to step up to one of gaerne's hinged and pivoted models for sure.

The biggest noticeable difference between these boots and the others in the Gaerne line up is the ankle system. The GX-1's don't have a hinge type mechanism like the other models do. The ankle reinforcement is cleverly designed though, and is only connected on the medial side of the boot at the ankle bone protector. The panels of material in the negative space are arranged in a way that the boot is still really flexible.

Another difference is in the toe area. The toe box is left open on the medial side of the foot, as opposed to being completely covered in TPU. The toe box is still very rigid, though, and offers plenty of protection for recreational riding.

Protection is also found in the way of a TPU shin plate and metal toe cap.

Opening up the GX-1 exposes the muck shunning gaitor and the moisture wicking liner.

i am size 9 1/2 wide. will gaerne gx-1 fit ok?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2015
Best Answer:I purchased these boots at a size 11 and I don't purchase wide sizes but my size 11 would have plenty of room to move comfortably if I did have a wide foot. I think most moto boots are designed to fit any foot comfortably.

Are these boots waterproof?
A shopper on Apr 28, 2015
Best Answer:Sort of, they have never allowed water in in my experience and I have ridden in the rain and through water crossings. I have stepped in water as well but never in deep water. I wouldn't consider them water proof, but they do a great job. I would highly recommend these boots.
