Gaerne G.King Boots
Gaerne G King boots is a very waterproof boot. I purchased these boots to supplement my summer boots which are perforated and are not waterproof. My first ride with these boots was twenty miles in heavy rain. And my feet were dry and comfortable, and they have been comfortable down to about the mid forties.
The fit for these boots is about a half size large, but this might be corrected by wearing heavier socks. They are not heavy, bulky or cumbersome and the first time on felt like the shoes I've worn for six months.
I didn't buy these for air flow, so I'll see what they're like in the summer. I expect they might be a little warm.
Overall, very satisfied with the money spent

Good boots, gonna be warm in the summer
These boots are comfortable. I was worried that "Italian" would mean narrow, but they fit just fine. Construction is solid, and they have passed my (so far minimal) waterproofiness tests.
The airflow is minimal below the ankle, but even so I haven't had any problems with heat yet... they might get toasty on long rides once the temperature gets over 80, but that's par for the course.

Nice touring boot fit is a little large for my foot but still pretty good. Rode in a down pour and foot stayed dry if not a little warm. However during the colder month will be just what I'm after. Like the simple style which doesn't have to much going on. Just a real nice looking boot.

excellant sport touring boot
these boots are replacing an old very reliable pair of alpinestars, bought these on a recommendation by a friend, these boots are high quality, well built, great Italian leather, tested this winter in rain some heavy and some snow completely waterproof and with a good pair of thermal socks my feet were toasty down in the low 30sF, thin sole good for sport oriented rides, also very comfortable off the bike for extended periods of time. virtually no break in time required and on first ride in boots had no mis-shifts, solid protection, room for sole inserts, size was accurate to my normal size and boots do run a little narrow.

Fits true to size, feels like a solid built boot.
If there was one thing I would have liked to have seen on this boot - it'd have been a thicker sole. Granted this will be used as a cold weather boot and may not see extensive use, a little thicker sole would give this boot 5 stars.

These boots filled all my expectations. I only wish they were a bit cooler.
It's a good product. About airflow, I have my reservations. It all boils down to, you want more, pay more.
