Dainese Carroarmato Gore-Tex Boots 3.7 5 9 9
After a year the seams split and they leak like a sieve. I bought the Dainese Carroarmato Gore-Tex Boots in August 2013, and after about 10 months, the right (the non shift lever side of my bike) developed a split in the seam between the part above my arch and the inside (see picture). Soon after the left boot (picture of that is attached too) had a split in the same spot. They kept the water out, so no big deal. About 2 months ago (November 2014) the right started to leak, but as winter was coming I din't give it much thought. This past weekend, I successfully rode in the longest running motorcycle rally, the Crotona Midnight Run, from midnight to 6 Am (ish.) Awesome ride, and the Ramapo club is a great bunch of folks for not only keeping this rally going in Winter, but just good guys in general. At any rate, yesterday (1/18/15) after the rally, freezing rain closed the Thruway and I wasn't able to get heading north from Congers NY to Albany NY until 2 PM and enjoyed a 3 hour torrential downpour, with a couple spots north of Kingston and around Catskill where the water firmed up to say, slush. My Dainese Carroarmato Gore-Tex Boots leaked like a screen door on a submarine, and needless to say my feet became soaked. My Tourmaster heated insoles warmed the 36 degree salt water (thank you Zilla for the insoles!) so no harm done. However, I ride coast to coast, am riding to Glacier NP from NY this year, and will be riding to Alaska in 2017. When I buy Goretex lined equipment I pay for waterproof. When Dianese says waterproof, they need to make boots that hold up more than a year for $389. The first pair of Dianese boots I bought were Visokes, and they too leaked, but as they weren't goretex, I gave them a pass because they had full metal shanks and I've ridden 1310 miles in a day once and when I took them off my feet felt fantastic, so they are my day boot when rain isn't expected. However I cannot rely on them for multi day rides. As I've bought over $700 worth of boots from Dianese *(through Zilla) and they've both leaked, even though they are marketed as waterproof, I am no longer interested in the Dianese (anything!) D-Explorer Goretex jacket I was about to buy from Zilla, as my First Gear Katmandu jacket (bought from Zilla) has served me well for 50,000 miles but has uglied out due to road grime. So I'm interested in waterproof boots, for a bike with pegs, something with a stiff sole for riding, that is tall to keep the water out, armored to provide protection for my ankles and feet, that I can reliably wear on multi day, multi thousand mile rides, that will keep my feet dry for a few years. If anyone here has put 20,000 to 30,000 miles or more on a pair of boots, including riding thru torrential extended rain for multiple days, please share your experience if they keep you dry. And I am not interested in overboots. I post this review in hopes that Revzilla can share with Dianese these photos and the fact that in a years time, these boots have failed to keep water out, and that the soft material on the top where it is sewn to the stiff side panel flex at different rates causing that seam to rip apart. Soft squishy material has no business as a part of adventure touring boots - I have LL bean slipper for that. Go back to the stiff materials used in the Visokes, keep in the full steel shank, line them with real, appropriately gauged goretex and I think then you'll have a fantastic pair of boots! If manufacturers are installing soft, squishy material on top so people can walk around in these boots, that is ridiculous! When you get off your bike, put on a pair of walking shoes. Stiff boots for safety and longevity for riding please. And only say it is waterproof if it is. For Sale: One pair of 1 1/2 year old Dainese Carroarmato Gore-Tex Boots, for riding in Dry weather, 30,000 miles, slight odor - $50. If nobody buys them, you can join me with a 12 gauge and we can put them to rest. I ride with Low Expectations Motorcycle Club, but I expect something sold as waterproof, or marketed by the manufacturer as Adventure Touring to be just that. And not rip apart at the seams. Again, my Visokes still are in great shape, just line them with Goretex for a great boot and I'll buy them. Or at least test ride them for a year. January 19, 2015
Tough boot I thought at first these were a bit overkill. Then I took my Tiger on some dirt... The tough grippy soles were much appreciated. The tougher, stiff construction kept my foot from getting smashed when the bike took a nap. Full on rain storm, and my feet remain warm and dry. The only drawback is the heavy weight and the tough break in. However compared to other brand adventure boots, these are actually lighter. After a week of commute riding, they feel much more comfortable. I really like the wide toe box. Very similar to the tcx version. I suspect they may even come from the same factory. I like the look of the Dainese boot much better overall. November 29, 2014
Bad, bad, bad. Will break on the ankle! The Carroarmato is a overpriced piece of s....! I had them for my tour in the ´stans´ and the result: they broke after few thousend of km of PAVED road!!! Of course Dainese rejected my complain because I did not treat my boots properly in extreme conditions!!! WTF??? If a paved road with one (1) day of rain is extreme... let´s stop driving bikes! Anyway...don´t buy those boots... will broke on the ankle due to bad production! Don´t believe me... will send you pics! November 10, 2014
Pricey but Great Boots These are overall great boots. The sole is very stiff, ankle and heel protection is great, toe protection is great, and the shin padding is a plus. They're also very quick to get in and out of. Comfort is pretty good too but I wouldn't want to spend a lot of time walking around in these. If you can afford them you should be happy with the purchase. September 8, 2014
tough boots I got them for ADV touring and after lots of research, I was drawn to this model because there aren't any hard plastic parts on the outside but they still provide plenty of protection. The style is tasteful and refined which sets it apart from some other ADV boots. The price is great for Gore-Tex and nice leather. The gaiter comes up mid-calf. I fold it to the outside of my leg and it lies flat without any discomfort. Another thing I like is the toe box. There's plenty of room in there to wiggle around and it's not too tall so it's easy to shift. Soles are nice and stiff for standing on the pegs. I wish the tread were a little luggier but it'll do. A little tight in the instep but I can see walking around town in them. They lack hard ankle-roll protection but the boots aren't flimsy in any way. I got them at the RevZilla store in Philly. Cool place, nice people. February 23, 2014
90/10 Road/Off-Road I got both the Black and the Grey/Blue. They are both good looking. They seem to provide only marginally better protection than the TRQ (which I also have). The sole is beefier to be sure. The toe is also more ridgid. However, if I am not stocking my whole home in motogear, I want a boot that radically different for those times that I plan to go off road. In a one-boot quiver where you may someday go off-road, this is a good choice. Since I already have the TRQ, I am going to go more serious for my adventure boot. Maybe the AlpineStars Toucan. I am returning both of these. On fit, I have wide feet and found these to be good. Much better than Sidi boots for me. Flexing, I do feel some of the folds of the boot come through. Maybe this would lighten up with heavier socks or more time in the boot. February 18, 2014
Pricey yet good Love the boots, yet to start riding though. Sizes are perfect, need to break in,can wear over a jeans. Good choice! May 29, 2013
Pricey but definitely worth it! I totally love these boots. I bought them almost a more than month ago and decided to wait until I went through two rains to finally give them a proper review. First off, the negative, if it is a warm day (>80 degrees), don't expect these boots to breathe very well. If you're flat footed, don't expect much comfort after walking around in them for more than 30 minutes. If you wear jeans with anything narrower than boot cut, don't expect to pull them over these massive boots. Now the positives! My Yamaha FZ8 is my daily driver, I have nothing else to drive. With that in mind, these boots are awesome day in and day out. The leather is still in prestine condition with only minor scuffs from the foot pegs that easily rub out. The TPU shifter pads show no sign of wear. The velcro is still strong, the buckles still click like new, and the soles are still intact despite dragging them on the concrete. As far as the heat issues, I just wear breathable socker socks to wick the sweat away and I am comfortable all day. As far the flat foot issue, I purchased a set of SureFeet Black-DMP insoles to replace the factory ones and now it is the finest, most comfortable setup that I can wear all day despite living in hot Houston weather. As far as the jeans issues, my Levi's regular straight cut jeans fit over the top of the boots with easy. I can even add the Tour Master Sentinel rain pants over them without difficulty. If I want to get that CHIPS, motorcycle cop look, I wear my Wrangler jeans and tuck them in the boots. You can't go wrong with these boots. Yes, they are quite pricey, but they are worth every penny. Combined with my Dianese Scapel gloves (also purchased from Revzilla.com), I have an awesome commute to work and school, from sunrise to sunset. The pictures were taken today after wearing them since the day I bought them and after the rain we had today. April 10, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Peter C: I chose these because although I really liked my Dianese Visoke boots, they weren't gore-tex and let water in during torrential downpours. These keep my feet bone dry, and they breath well so not too hot either. Nov 9, 2014
Kirk Y: They looked comfy, Hoped the would work good for adventure riding, but the stitching came apart in the first 2 weeks , we sent them back on got the Alpinestars Tucan Oct 27, 2014
Jeorme C: Refined styling compared to others in class. Aug 6, 2014
Patrick C: Great price for GoreTex and Dainese. Good protection. Awesome style. Mar 21, 2014
Joshua N: Quality and aesthetics. Feb 21, 2014
Arkadiy B: Dainese - great quality, awesome style. Have put over 2000 miles in all kinds of weather...awesome boot! Jan 2, 2014
Bob C asked: Tried on a pair. Pretty amazing except as I walked the top of my foot was " bitten" or pinched, mid way on the top of my foot behind my toes. Anyone else experience this? I loved them just sitting! Aug 19, 2014

Peter C: I've ridden wearing these boots (size 13, standard width feet regular instep) for two season here in upstate NY in 95 degree sun, torrential downpours for extended rides, offroad (Suzuki V-Strom), in weinter months with Gerbing heated insoles down to 17 degrees F and truly loves the boots. The ONLY issue I have is riding a boot with Pegs, I miss the full metal shank of the Dianese Visoke's I had previous as they were more comfortable for LONG day rides - by long day rides, I refer to 300-500 miles plus, including an Iron Butt Association 50 CC 950 hours coast to coast, rode it in 46 hours.) However, the Visokes were water resistant, not waterproof, so I chose the Goretex of these, after I returned home fomr a ride with 1/2" of water in the Visokes.
After 2 riding seasons (I ride year round), I will say the seam between the toe piece and upper is starting to separate on the right boot, on the inside of the boot - but, it is still keeping the water out.
Again, if Dianese would put the full metal shank in these boots they'd be fantastic.
As far as your pinching, I sometimes take a couple tries to get the two buckles and velcro rap just right, then go ride for 10-12 hours at a clip. When I get off at gas stations or a bite to eat I don't walk that far - If I'm getting off for an hour or more, I take my sandals out of my metal panniers and put them on to give my feet some air anyway.

Patrick C: Yes, the lower straps are too short. I had the same problem until I maxed out the adjustment - but even then the instep is a little tight. They have broken in to become very comfortable but at times like squatting and climbing steps I feel the pinch. I'm happy with the boots. Aug 20, 2014

Peter C: I am 6'4 200#'s, and wear my straight leg Levis over the tops on occasion (like when running to the corner store for bread.) With a bit of work, and cinching the boots tight I can get the Levis over the boots. Typically however, I tuck my pants in and wear my First Gear TPG pants with armor all the time for protection, in case. I'm more of the ATGATT variety - I ride an average of 15,000 - 22,000 miles a year in upstate NY, so wearing protective gear all over seems prudent. As a matter of fact I rode today wearing these boots in 39 degree weather on the way in, and will ride home later tonite at 35 degrees. These boots are great, and most important keep my feet dry. I'd highly recommend them. Nov 8, 2013

Bahram B: I think its highly unlikely you could wear any pants over them and if you do I think it would look bad if not ridiculous. These boots are very wide you could wear them over anything but not viceversa. Nov 10, 2013

Gavin D asked: Hi there:

I just asked a similar question about the Sidi Canyon GTX boot, so apologies if this is somewhat redundant.... I was able to try on a pair of Alpinestars Scout WP boots today in a size 10 - fit was great lengthways, though my heel was a little loose. How does this Dainese Carroarmato compare to both the Alpinestars AND the Sidi? What size, respectively, would I need for the Alpinestars and Sidi boots?

Thanks (again)....!

Peter C: I can't speak to comparing to sidi or alpinesrars but I can tell my experience so far with these. I h a ve acsize 12 foot, and these fit great. When I remove the sole insert and insert my gerbring heated in sole, and warm socks, th ey are still comfortable, and keep my feet warm to 15 to 20 degrees F. Riding in torrential rain for hours my feet are dry. My dianese visoke stay dry for 15 minutes, but these are great. Ive ridden in 90 degree temps and they are okay. I have considered buying a bag of ice and standing in it at 105 gegrees in fresno, bu r an hour later in Yosemite at 82 degrees all was well.
Typically ride 8 to 10 hours at a clip and these have been great. Plenty stable for the occasional off road ride on my 2012 dl650.

Eric D: I just posted a review, but here goes:
i have no idea about those other boots.
I am going heavier: AlpineStars Toucan.
I find Sidi boots to be too narrow for my feet so I didn't even try that brand on this time.
None of these more adventure boots are tight like a sneaker.
I wear a 11 and got a 45 in the carroarmato. I think that was the right size.
good luck.

Patrick C: I like the Dainese out of those 3 because of the buckles which make for a more secure fit. The A-Stars have none and the straps on the SIdis look like they could be cumbersome. Also, of the three, the Daineses have the most rugged looks. Nov 30, 2014
