The least expensive shoe on test, but by no means the poor relation, the G. Futura in its light reflective ‘Reflex' finish was initially something of an eye-catching novelty.

Aside from the option of black, white or the Reflex's unusually stylish nod towards safety, Gaerne's mid-range road shoe keeps things simple, practical and comfortable.

Wider feet may want to go up half a size, but with strong Velcro straps and a quality ratchet that offers a broad range of adjustment, getting a secure fit is easy, further helped by a relatively deep heel cup with generous ankle support.
