I am. Love them. Gaerne, like Sidi started by making motorcycle boots? So they know shoes, leather, tough. I don't know what model I have, but it is feather light, super stiff, and very comfortable.

I have a pair of their MTB shoes that I use for Cross season. They fit well, maybe just a touch on the roomy side IMO. Very comfortable shoes.

I'd never heard of this brand until last November when I was doing El Tour De Tucson, and Gaerne was one of the exhibitors at the pre-ride Expo. I found a pair of shoes that fit better, were more comfortable, and whose ratchets & straps were easier to "operate" than my current S-Works shoes

...for $150 less than I'd paid for the S-Works.

I bought 'em. Still haven't mounted cleats and used 'em, but am looking forward to it.

i used a pair of their mtb shoes for years and years and i still keep em as a backup set. they fit my wide feet quite well, tho their newer models don't feel as generous in the toebox as my older style. if not for the decidedly dated look i may still be rocking these. materials show tons of use, but no signs of appreciable wear. these might actually last longer than i mtb.

I rode em in the past. VERY good shoes for the $$.

I have used Gaerne shoes for the last 4 years. Very good shoe. They are handmade in Italy in the same village where Sidi's are made Very comfortable and available with carbon fiber or reinforced nylon soles. I highly recommend them.

I have a pair of winter boots that are nice but a touch narrow and slightly shorter than my Sidis of the same size. Not sure if that is true of their other shoes.
