Gaerne Carbon G.Kobra

Kobra: for race snakes?

Kobra: for race snakes?

Gaerne Carbon G.Kobra shoes:  they’re racy, they’re shiny, they’re Eye-talian.  The dual Boa system is remarkably comfortable, the carbon sole appropriately stiff, and there’s some surprise flex in the forefoot for those scary sections.  Almost too pretty to get dirty.  Almost.

Price: £299.99 in the UK/$499.99  in the US
