The Gaerne G-Midland is a waterproof motorcycle boot model aimed at motorcycle adventure touring and touring use. The BOMBERS are literally responsible for these being sold into the US, we began importing them ourselves back in 2011 and they are a popular model for us.

Midlands are a perfect split between support and comfort, hitting a balance for a mix of street and dirt use. Midlands have considerably more support at the ankle and forefoot areas than the Gaerne G-Adventure and Gaerne Balance Oiled models, but are similar in weight, so they are easy to walk in. They also have that typical outstanding Gaerne fit and comfort, which we feel is best in the industry.

Midlands fit slightly smaller than other Gaerne boots. We call it a half size or less. Toebox is wide, they are great boots for people with wide feet.

Key protection include a plastic protector at the heel, hard supports at the ankle and shin, a more reinforced and rigid toe, shift lever pads, and several other supports. Comfort features include a trick stretch panel at the calf, that lets them fit big calves well, and a Gaerne Aquatech waterproof membrane. A lugged sole lets you walk on loose terrain. Materials are all premium. And once again, they have that excellent Gaerne wide fit. BOMBER Recommended.

FIT: Gaerne G-Midlands run small, order .5 - 1 size larger than normal.

We suggest looking at 3-4 pairs of your NON-motorcycle footwear to get an average of the EU SIZE, then crossing against the EU size for these. If you have questions on proper sizing, please email us.

FEATURES:
  • Great for riding AND walking. 
  • Supportive at the ankle and forefoot
  • Waterproof Aquatech Liner
  • Lugged sole for walking on loose terrain.
  • Plastic Reinforcements at ankle area - much more supportive.
  • Plastic Heel Counter.
  • Velcro plus two buckle design.
  • Toe Area Reinforcements.
  • Wide heel area for more stability.
  • Light weight.
  • Outstanding comfort and fit

starrating Tough to size for wide feet
 
As stated in the description, they do fit fit differently than the typical Garene. Was definitely excited for this boot due to the having old school looking boot with ankle protection. Orderd a size 8/42 but were a tad to narrow for my wide, neutral arch feet. Also do not like the upper part of the boot as the top is not finished and the seams dig irritate your skin. You either need super long socks or tuck your pants in to not have the abrasion. The buckles could be have a slimmer profile like what is used on the G-adventure as well. Put this sole and the ankle protection on the G-adventure or add ankle protection to the oil balance, and I'd be wearing a gaerne today.

starrating G-Gaerne Midland disappointing
 
I have been riding with the Gearne G-Midland for less then 15 days and they tore up at the junction between the top of the foot and the beginning of the shin. Very disappointed. Light, waterproof before they tore, easy to attach, nice looking but pricey if they only last for 15 days if riding and I should specify: roads, almost no dirt, never felt down with them.

starrating Gaerne Midland - comfort and functionality
 
This is my second pair of Gaerne boots and they rock! Great feel right out of the box, comfortable and I love the aggressive soles. I hope I never have to find out if there is enough shin protection there, but it seems so now that I have them. Easy buckles and very stylish...glad I bought them. Good call Bombers!

starrating Gaerne G-Midland - a great boot
 
This is the second pair of adventure boots I've owned. The first one was a lower-end AlpineStars which I bought when I was just starting my adventure riding. They were good, but very stiff and clunky - difficult to walk around in. So - I read an on-line review of the G-Midlland which rated them as a "highly recommend." I, too, would rate them the same way. Size-wise: many reviews said they run on the smaller side. However, I take a 12-13 in most shoes or boots, depending on the product. I bought the 13s and they fit perfect - couldn't be better. I walked around in them for a week in my house just to test the comfort level, and that, too, was very good. I can see that they will likely break in nicely. I like the 2 buckles - less is more as I hate to futs with lots of moving parts. If there is any down side, I have skinny calves so there is more room than needed there. But, that's a relatively small issue. Tucking my pants in the boots remedies that good enough. The hard rubber sole is stiff enough so as not to hurt my feet when standing on the foot pegs while off-roading. Lastly, they look pretty cool and you don't look like you are wearing spaceman boots when walking around with your pants pulled over them.

starrating Good boot best bought from AM
 
Boots looked like just what I wanted: an easy on/off, 70/30 street/dirt boot that would go either over or under the pant with protection that I could hike in. I use my KLR for touring, errands, and an annual DS trip like the WABDR and wanted and versatile boot for all occasions. Though I've not had them on the bike they appear to be just that in as much as I can tell from wearing in the house. Well made, good materials, good design. Part of what pushed me into this level (ie, price) of a boot were the awesome video reviews Atomic Moto produce. I found them to be very informative and am so far happy to have spent more than I expected as I believe I have the most suitable boot for my purposes. In general, I'm hesitant to order footwear online as fit is very individual and a big fail if done wrong. I could get the boots cheaper elsewhere but wanted to support AM. I am glad I did. Within 10 minutes of placing my order I got a call from Brian. He said they run small and wanted to make sure the size 11 I ordered would be right for me. I usually wear a 10.5 to 11 in shoes so thought I'd be okay with the 11's. In working it through with him I ended up getting the 12's and am glad I did. If anything, they are still a bit on the narrow side but will likely loosen up over time. I have a D foot so if you have especially wide feet you might need to spring for a pair of Sidi's as they width size. Brian knows the boots he sells and the intricacies of how they fit: not just big or small but where, how, and what type of feet they will or won't work on. That call was the next best thing to being fitted in a store and saved me the shipping expense of an exchange. If you find their video reviews or advice useful please keep them in business and buy from them - the time they spend with their products and customers can't be cheap.

starrating Iinitial Review
 
First impressions: I purchased the G-Midlands for flattrack racing. I wanted something that was easy to put on with more protection than my current police style "tactical" boot. The boots are excellent in that regard. Easy on and off, and the sizing was right on. The boots are stiffer than I thought they would be. The shin protection at the front of the boot is great, so it's a good thing. Since I'm short, the lower height makes this a very comfortable boot compared to my MX boot The lighter weight will make a difference when I'm walking around the pits. They are breaking in the break in phase, worn one time to work. I will post more information after I get a steel shoe and race in these boots. BTW, a high quality Italian boot

starrating Nice boots, tougher to size
 
Tried a 9 and that was too tight in the toe box, the 10 and my foot was swimming, so never got it just right. Had the same issue with the Gaerne Adventure, so my foot just doesn't do Italian boots that well. The boots were very nice and well made, just never felt right on my foot. Ordered some Forma Cape Horns in a 9 hoping they fit my foot a little better.

starrating These boots are awesome
 
I took these boots on a 25 mile super muddy, super snowy, icy trail ride today. They were super comfortable, the soles gripped great on the trail and on the pegs, and my feet stayed dry and warm. I like the level of flexiliby they offer - just enough to allow walking and manuverability on the trail, while still providing great protection. These are a great dual sport plus light trail boot. Regarding the fit, I wear 11-12 in shoes. I got size 11 equivalent in these boots and they fit perfectly - so for me, they don't run small as they did with other reviewers. I originally didn't consider these boots because they don't have the 3rd buckle. Now I don't mind - the velcro top closure is super substantial.

starrating Gaerne G-Midland boots are awesome!!!
 
I've had mine for a little over a year now, and liked them so much that I got a pair for my wife. She loves them as well! These boots are very comfortable - I've worn them in the desert in Moab with temps in the 90's, and I've worn them through a 2 hour downpour here in WA where afterwards my feet were the only part of me that was still dry. I've also waded through creeks in them where the water was above my ankles, and no leaks. They are very comfortable for short hikes off the bike, give good feel for the shifter, and still offer a decent level of protection. All around great boots!
