Dainese Anfibio Cafe Boots

Nylon ankle discs and polyurethane inserts in the heels and toes reinforce the boot's structure to a level you just won't get out of those Redwings.

  • Nylon ankle guard
  • Polyurethane inserts on heel and toebox

Ergonomics and Comfort:

  • Cowhide upper
  • Split leather inserts with rubber finishing
  • Closing with laces

Great "looking" boot
This is a very good looking boot in a very vintage style, I get compliments on them often. They are very comfortable and fit runs pretty true to size. The leather is very soft and supple, with a minimum amount of protection. More than none in a standard combat boot. They have reinforced shift protection on both boots, which is great for vintage right side shift bikes. These are the pros...

The cons are rapidly starting to outweigh the pros. Upon first opening the box I noticed the soles are made to look pre worn, traction is compromised for vintage style. The tongue is not gusseted which explains why they are definitely not waterproof, although I have mink oiled them, which has made them slightly more water resistant. The insole in the boot is junk I recommend a set of aftermarket insoles for all day comfort. The worst part has just happened recently, as the eyelets have started to pull through the edge of the boot, it is possible that liking my boots somewhat tight may play into that.
I have had them for 58 days, being on a bike for around 10 of them. Any boot or shoe at this price should last longer than this, I will now trod off to the leather repair place to see if they can be repaired.

super soft soles
after a few months wearing this boot in normal day to day activities i figured it was time to post a review.

these boots are lightweight, and extremely comfortable. they look amazing as well! they are a great shoe, and i love them! but they are a motorcycle boot, not a shoe. these boots began to fray at the seems after only a few days, after a while they stopped and i cut the loose strings off and it seemed to stop there. but the big kicker is that theses boots offer NO lateral protection across the sole. i can literally squeeze the boot to touch the sides together with a single hand. the soles are so soft and flimsy that i can feel stones on the pavement as i walk over it. having dropped a big bike on my foot in the past i would not want this boot between my 550Lb bike and the pavement. there is a nice ankle pad built in, but without the sole to back up the ankle protection, i feel that the boots aren't suitable for street riding.

After 3 years- I am very surprised how durable these boots are
I own the black version of these boots, which, as it appears, are sold out. But I expect the brown ones to be the same in most profiles.

I bought these on March 21, 2012, from Revzilla- I checked my order receipt for the date. I wore these boots very often- roughly 1/3 of the year, most of the riding season- to work, around the city. I wore them on cross country trips, to Canada, to Mexico and back. I've traveled almost 20,000 miles on these boots.

I only came back to this page today because I wanted to get another pair again, more than 3 years later (Aug 2015 now). Then I saw some of what the other folks are saying, thought I write something.

Don't listen to them. These boots are durable. They're very water resistant (not completely waterproof under long periods of thunderstorms), they look good, are comfortable to walk around, and you can travel cross country with them.

I've worn many boots before. When it comes to Dainese products, you really get what you are paying for. Don't complain about the price!

After 3 years of heavy usage, the soles are now worn out and need to be replaced. Some holes start to show and it's going through to the insoles. I wore these boots to the very very bitter end.

Seeing I cannot get another, exact same pair, I'm going to take my current pair to the cobbler and have the soles replaced. The top of the boots are still in fine condition, and I expect it to last for a lifetime. They're just very well made.

expensive for what it is
I usually love Dainese gear, but this pair of boots leaves me wanting a bit more.

First, they look much chunkier than in the photos (video wasn't yet available at the time of purchase)... they have a big boxy toe box, and a thick rubber sole. i was expecting a Vietnam era combat style boot, but they are more like goth rocker boots... not necessarily bad, but make sure you watch the video and not just the photos for a better representation of the 'look.'

The boots are comfortable with ample room in the toebox. I wouldn't necessarily call the fit big as the length seems right on for the size, but they are very roomy and they look boxy on your feet. This does make handling the foot controls a bit awkward at first if you're used to a slimmer fitting boot or shoe, but nothing that you can't get used to.

Secondly, an issue with these boots just comes from the amount of protection for the price point. I expected a bit more from a Dainese developed boot... wasn't expecting a raceboot, but the protection feels soft for this level of pricing. There are plenty of 'military/ cafe' style boots with at least equal reinforcement and protection for less money.

Quality and workmanship are always top notch with Dainese, this one just lacks styling finese and protection. I find them much chunckier than expected, and a bit light on the protection. Overall, they are a decent boot, just expensive for what you're getting.

Disappointed
Ordered them in brown. These boots looked great in the video and pictures. Underwhelmed when I received them. As another reviewer commented, the color was much lighter than depicted. But not only was the color much lighter, it was uneven and had a "washed out" or "bleached" look to it, almost like there was a wax residue over it that can't be rubbed off. The sole of the boot is a VERY soft and spongy rubber and I expect it would wear extremely quickly if walked in (these boots are not able to resoled). The leather was no better (thicker/sturdier) than a traditional full leather jungle boot from standard retailers like Altima. I don't think the minor safety upgrades (ankle caps and toe box) justify the price over a normal jungle boot. I can't comment on fit or comfort, as I was so disappointed when I opened the box, I just boxed them back up and shipped them back. I have bought several products from RevZilla with no issues, and they remain great company to do business with. Dainese failed on these. What would have made this better? 1. A color that was more in tune with what was depicted. 2. A more durable sole (or at least a replaceable sole). 3. Better leather. 4. Better price point.

These don't look like riding boots - :D :D :D
I really, REALLY don't like those astronaut-looking riding boots,also, those that make me look like I wanna be part of a gang... no, these boots would look good even if I wasn't riding a motorcycle.

I get a ton of compliments (mostly from other guy riders so don't get your hopes up, bro... :), they are comfortable, and look durable enough, but their forte is their style, if you want black nice looking boots to ride around town, gentlemen, pick a pair of these, you won't regret it.

Style and protection
After having been called out for wearing "moon boots" one too many time, I thought it was time to replace my old motorcycle boots with something that could work well in a variety of places. When I saw these Dianese boots in the 2012 line-up, I thought they fit the bill perfectly. I can wear them to work and I can wear them out, but they still protect like a proper motorcycle boot. They fit like a glove for me (true to size), and were comfortable from the start. Also, they don't look out of place on either of my bikes (a sport tourer and a naked bike). The laces aren't as quick as my old velcro boots, but I feel like it gives you a better fit.

The only negative perhaps is that they do get pretty hot in warm weather, and they aren't necessarily cheap. Having owned other Dianese gear, I expect these to last me a long time, making them worth the money.

Stylish? Yes....Durable? Not really
I wish I had read the reviews more closely before buying these boots. The brown definitely looks way different than in any picture I've seen on the internet, although I did kind of like the washed out look. The sole is very soft and gummy, which I also kind of liked the feel of while on the bike. This would probably wear through very quickly though. Pretty comfy right out of the box, although I'm sure it would be a lot better if you actually broke them in.

As for durability, I had to lay my bike down recently when I was cut off by a pickup truck making an abrupt U-turn at high speed (I'm ok!) and these boots didn't last too well. They did however, protect my feet and ankles, which I am thankful. I don't think I'll be riding in any more boots with laces, as these came pretty close to falling off after the laces got chewed through.

During my slide, it became apparent that these are way over priced for the features they provide. The main seam that connects the leather holding the eyelets to the rest of the boot was ripped out, as it is only single stitched. Eyelets also got trashed on the side that I slid on. The leather is actually pretty thin, as it got a good chunk ripped from the ankle protector.

Overall, I'm glad they protected me, but I was a little disappointed in their durability considering they cost this much. If you're just interested in style, there are many other options (a certain British brand comes to mind) over these for half the price.

Great boots
The leather is thick but supple with plastic armor near the ankles and stiffer leather in other areas.

The vamp is a bit tight for me. I tried to get it stretched by a cobbler with limited results, but I think it was the fault of the cobbler. The leather is stretching slowly as I use the boots and since I do not do much walking, I don't notice the tightness often.

The sole is a very soft vibration dampening rubber foam like material. It would not last long as a walking boot, but for a motorcycle riding they are wonderful. I feel almost no vibration through the foot pegs.

I do not feel any sort of shank in the sole and would not want to use the boots when standing on the pegs for adventure riding.

The toe box is a bit wider than normal and the length is dead on in European sizing. The EU 43 was a perfect EU 43.

My wife also purchased a pair for herself and loves them.

Good quality
Hard to find a boot in this style that has a low heel suited to riding. I wanted a real motorcycle boot that isn't tech looking and provides decent protection. Most boots in this style are uncomfortable too ride in. These boots fit me perfect, a size 9 is really a true 9 1/2, very comfortable, high quality, has a reinforced toe, heel, side ankle, and extra layer for the shifter, even though its on both boots (good for vintage British bikes and early Sportsters) I ride a 2009 Bonniville SE and a 79 Yamaha RD400 Daytona Special, goes great with my Joe Rocket Speedway Jacket and Bonn riding pants and shirt, real protection but you can walk into a Bar or Resturant and not look like a Power Ranger. I've been riding street bikes since I was 16 I'm now 48, I started wearing a full face helmet, leather jacket and gloves with jeans and high tops or boots after a wreck when I was 17, even though I haven't crashed in over 25 years I'm more aware of safety then ever, there are a lot of idiots driving fast, and screwing around with their cellphones.

The image of the brown boot looks different from the one reviewed in the video. "bumpy" leather vs smooth. Same material on shifter panel vs black accented, etc. Is the boot from the image available or the one from the video? Thanks
A shopper on Sep 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Smooth leather. The entire boot is brown except for the sole. It's black
When is this getting in stock? And if I'm a size US size 11 should I go with a 44 or 45?
A shopper on Jan 23, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I ordered a 44, and I think they're perfect. I wear a 10.5 in Converse low-tops and an 11 in almost all my other shoes. You'll have to seriously let out the laces when putting them on at first, but after they wear in they'll get better.
Are these resoleable?
A shopper on Nov 6, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The Dainese Cafe Boots are not designed to be re-solable, however a local cobbler could probably work some magic and make this happen. Keep in mind they will not be able to offer you the same soles that the boots originally came with.
What is the length from the sole to the top of the boot? Also would it be possible to wear leather riding pants inside the boot.
Thank you.
A shopper on Aug 29, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I've put the boots away so this is a guess, but the height is about 8" above the sole. As for fitting leather riding pants into them? Impossible. The "neck" of the boot upper is extremely narrow. So narrow that you pretty much have to unlace them all the way down before you can get your feet though the upper and into the boot. They're laced display style so you'll have to re-lace them for ease of use. Also comes with a spare set of cotton laces. The stock laces feel like waxed cotton. But these boots are definitely for wearing beneath jeans, untucked. You're talking about jump boots, right? You can blouse khakis or cargos with jump boots, but I don't think that would work with these.
I've got small feet, measuring 25cm in length. Which size would u recommend?
Mary-Anne P on Feb 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The size 42 Euro/9 US should fit you spot on.
Is there any chance of getting these in a larger size?
I need a 47 or 48.
