Looking to pick up a pair of Gaerne GX1s. Never work G's before so kind of weary on sizes. I wear a 13 in tech 5's and a 12 in regular tennis shoes. Thanks fellas!

Unleaded tastes a little tangy. Supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

Can't comment specifically to the GX1 sizing, but I just bought a brand new pair of SG12's. I wear a 9.5 in tennis shoes, and I got a size 9 in the boot. Fits perfect. I've read elsewhere that Gaerne's tend to run a bit big, so buy on the smaller size. My brother has about the same size foot as me and bought size 10's in the SG10's, and they were a bit loose on him, He added a thicker insole and that fixed it, but he'll definitely get size 9's next time.

I'm an 11.5-12 sneaker and bought a pair of size 12 SG12's and they were big. Still usable but wish I bought an size 11

I am 11.5 and usually 12 in other shoes and bought SG12’s in 12. They are a little bit big. Added a padded insole and they are pretty good.

Had some GX1’s and now have SG12’s. They run a 1/2 to 1 full size big. I wear a size 12 shoe and I bought 11.5’s in both boots. They were just a little big still but very wearable. They work well when I wear really thick socks. When I don’t, they are a little loose but still not a problem.

Just plan on a 0.5-1 size decrease from what your normal shoe size is.

I was not aware the sg12’s come in half sizes, is this new?

I wear 13 shoes and ordered a 13 in sg-12. Fits well. Not sure about the specific boots youre looking at tho. Id assume there about the same.

I wear size 12 Gaernes (sg10 & 12) and I wear a sz 12 shoe. I tried on tech 10s and 12 was too small.

I just went and checked the size on my boots. Brain fart, I have a size 12. I thought I went down because the size 12 in my GX's were big on me. But like you said there are no half sizes, I likely went and looked to only find a size 11 or size 12 with no size 11.5 and just stuck with size 12. It definitely is "roomy" unless I wear thick socks. Sorry for the confusion. Great boots, but they do fit a little big/roomy - but still doable.

I have gone through 3 pairs of Gaerne GX-1. They will fit wider in the toe box than other boots and generally one half size larger than normal street shoe size. I wear a 13 street shoe and the 13's fit great.

I have a pair of size 13 black and white GX-1 that I've worn 4 times that I'll make you a great deal on if interested. Switched to Sidi recently and won't be wearing these anymore.

I wear a 12 in Alpinestars Tech 7/8/10, a 12 in my casual shoes New Balance, 12 in my Red Wing work boots, and 12.5 in running shoes Saucony or Brooks.

When I tried on a set of SG12 in size 12 they were too big for me. I haven’t bought a set yet, but I’m gonna go with an 11 when I do.

Edit: it’s the same for my friend who wears a 13 in everything but wears 12 in SG12.
