Dainese Anfibio Cafe Boots

The challenges on the North Circular, trips down to the beach in Brighton, nights in the clubs where rockers hang out in their leather jackets, badges, and grease. This heavy-duty boot with the unmistakable style of the boots of the time is dedicated to the magic of the ‘60s and the Cafe Racer world and has been revised with modern technical solutions. Made in cowhide with split leather inserts, the Cafe Boot features nylon inserts over the ankle and a breathable double jersey mesh liner under a vintage look to satisfy even the most technical and demanding rockers.

Beautiful Quality. As always with Dianese the quality is excellent, I found them true to sizing. I think they look great, and they are really comfortable to walk in easily as comfortable as any non motorcycle specific boot. Good protection in the toe and heal and the ankle protection is a bonus and laced up feel like they will give a good amount of protection. So for a motorcycle boot that does'nt look like a motorcycle boot they are perfect. April 14, 2014
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.

Not perfect, but still a solid on-bike/off-bike boot This is my first motorcycle-specific boot, purchased last summer. The main reason I chose this boot was its casual cafe style. The boot fits very true to size. It gives a good amount of room at the toebox and still gives a sleek profile that can be worn over or under jeans. Initial break-in was somewhat uncomfortable, but broke in perfectly after a day of commuter use. The breathable liner does its job, and makes this boot a good choice for summer riding. Three shortcomings compromise this boot- its sole, ease of entry/removal, and shift pad. The insole can leave the feet mildly sore after a full day of use- if you plan to wear these during a full work day, be aware that your comfort level may or may not tolerate it. I work 40 hours/week with a lot of standing & walking, but for its 6+ months of use, I'm still fine with wearing them. The outsole isn't all that great either- after a month of riding, the sole started melting and the lugs have significantly lost its shape- and unfortunately, the outsole isn't traditionally stitched on, so it's possible that they may not be resole-able. Also, taking the boots on & off can be a real chore, even after initial break-in;also, the laces are starting to wear out along the top eyelets. Lastly, the textile shift pad started wearing out within a few months. Shifting is still fine, but Dainese would've been wise to give it a leather shift pad instead. Despite its cons, I'm still glad I bought the boots when I did. However, potential buyers may want to consider other choices. Rev'it is coming out with a similar boot called the Rodeo, and based on its video reviews, it appears to address the points the Cafe boots could've used improvement on. If time isn't an issue and you're willing to wait till early Spring, wait for the Rodeo in order to get a chance to compare the two. January 29, 2014
Tons of style I bought these boots for commuting around town and to go out without looking like a superhero. These are great looking boots. They're not quite all day comfortable yet, but should break in. Soles are made for protection, not walking comfort. The laces are inconvenient for switching shoes when I get to work so I'll probably still buy some standard boots for commuting and weekend rides. The only other moto boots I've used were MX boots and these are not that protective, but far more protective than any low boot or non-moto specific boot. Pros: well made, very stylish, enough protection for around town. Cons: laces take forever, stock insole is pretty crummy March 14, 2013
Fantastic boot I love these boots; they were exactly what I was looking for. I have owned them for almost a year so I have logged a lot of time in them. They have great style and reasonable protection. I bought these to wear to work and they have become my go to boot for around town riding. I needed something I could wear that looked somewhat professional. They are extremely comfortable and I can wear them all day. That being said, I wouldn’t wear them on a track day, off road or in the rain. I have been down in them and other than a scuff on the toe they did well. I have the brown ones and if you want them darker just use some Dr. Martens Wonder Shoe Balsam. I treat mine about once a month. It gives them a much darker almost coffee color. March 1, 2013
Nice! These boots are great. I wear a EU41 in normal shoe/boots and it fits the same. Very stylish. Good protection. Not yet sure about leather finish durability. Only worn them for about 1500km and after a clean and a shine they were ok but leather finish changes more than expected were the ankle area rubs. February 18, 2013
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. December 31, 2012
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. December 5, 2012

A shopper asked: When is this getting in stock? And if I'm a size US size 11 should I go with a 44 or 45? Jan 23, 2012

OldManRick: Boots will not ship until Spring 2012, which officially starts March 20th. If you try to place an order the Revzilla system will give you the option of being emailed when they are actually in stock.

The Dainese conversion chart says US size 11 = their size 44, but an authoritative generic conversion chart says Euro size 44 = US size 10.5, Euro size 45 = US size 11.5, you can find the chart here:

http://www.i18nguy.com/l10n/shoes.html

It might be best to simply measure your feet in centimeters, back of heel to tip of longest toe (best done with heels against a wall, standing up, with someone else reading the ruler). One Euro shoe size equals 2/3 cm, so size 44 = 29.33 cm (11.55 inches), size 45 = 30 cm (11.81 inches).

Remember - it is always easier to wear thicker socks than to cut off the ends of your toes.

SVDave: 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. Aug 14, 2012

RevZilla: 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. Nov 6, 2012

Motts: I doubt it, though I know some cobblers are pretty creative. You wouldn't want to walk a lot in these anyway. Mar 14, 2013

A shopper asked: 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.

PDXgearhoarder: 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. Oct 11, 2012

RevZilla: The length from the sole to the top of the boot is approximately 8.5 inches. Leather riding pants will most likely not fit on the inside of the Dainese Cafe Boots as they are fairly narrow when fully laced up. Aug 30, 2012
