Sneak Peek: Gaerne’s New $300 Boot


We ran into Gaerne’s Bob Rathkamp at Los Angeles County Raceway today, and he let us take a look at the new React boot, a $300 single-pivot boot that replaces the well-liked Fastback boot.


The React has a cool, sleek look. The buckles were beefy and easy to open and close, but had very positive action at the same time. Internal padding is abundant.


Our favorite feature about the React was the single pivot, located on the inside of the ankle. The rubber on the insides of the boot seemed very durable and will certainly grab plenty of traction.
