Dainese Dean D-WP Boots
I'm a new rider and bought these boots because of the style. They are very comfortable right out of the box. The bottoms look like they have been worn before but still seem to have a good amount of grip. They look great and no need to breAk them in.
The only problem I had was during shipping. They used OnTrac and for military people out there, they cannot get on base and they do not tell you that. I was never notified until I checked the tracking. I would have prefered FedEx or UPS. OnTrac is a horrible company for shipping purposes.

It just happened to be pouring rain the first day I had an opportunity to wear these after receiving them. I put my normal shoes in my backpack, laced up my brand new Dainese Dean WP boots, and rode to work. My feet were bone dry upon arrival after 15 minutes riding in the rain. I am very pleased with the waterproofing these offer.
They also look pretty great, on and off the bike. I got them in black, and they're a nice supple black suede, with great contrast stitching that I really like. Leather quality is great, as is overall construction, so I have no doubt they'll hold up to many long rides.
Fit is a bit more snug than expected, but not uncomfortably so. I ordered a 45 (US 11.5), the same size as the Chuck Talyor's I wear daily, and the Dean boots fit just a bit more snug than the Converse. There's a bit of a hot spot on my left big toe, which prevents prolonged walking in them at the moment, but I suspect that once they break in they'll be good. Worst case scenario, is that I wear them for riding and/or inclement weather to take advantage of protection and waterproofing, and switch to something more comfortable for walking around in. No biggie.

Great daily boots.
I bought these for some waterproof boots I could wear while riding to school that didn't look out of place while seeing patients. These mostly deliver. The suede is a bit different look and the brown color looks more like a green, but they're still nice looking boots.
The fit is great, and after swapping the insoles out for some SuperFeet Greys (worth it!) I can wear them all day with excellent comfort. They are waterproof in light rain, but I've yet to ride in a downpour. They stay warm when its cool out and don't get too hot with the right socks.
Protection wise you get what you see. Its minimal but for commuting they're great. I recommend these for anyone wanting some waterproof commuter boots you don't have to change out of at work or school.

Great value boot
Very happy with this boot. Very comfortable, I think I could walk all day in them. Good looking, great price, and water proof to boot. (although THAT feature isn't tested yet)

Stylish, light-duty boot
I switched to these boots after getting soaked a few times in the rain. My other boots would just fill up with water. These seem to resist water, but I haven't been caught in the rain yet since I have been wearing them. It's hard to say how breathable they are, but they haven't been too hot for the 90+ degree weather in Hawaii, so that's good.
They are sturdy boots, with a fairly rigid sole, but they are not heavy on protection. They are leather and offer full ankle coverage, but that's as far as they go. No armor or added padding. I ride casually and commute around the city, so I am ok with this level of protection.
But, they are comfortable on and off the bike, and they look great. No more clomping around like Frankenstein or an astronaut.

Style over Protection
I bought these boots for the styling. I wanted something that was casual not sporty or aggressive. I love the casual look. The fit is perfect and they are lighter than I thought they would be. They have an extra layer of material over the toe where the shifter would be but they definitely don't offer the extra protection (padding) that some other boots do. I wouldn't recommend them for a thousand mile trek but as a casual rider, I got exactly what I was looking for.

Stylish and comfortable boots for everyday use
I bought this with the intent of commuting to work and not having to change into casual shoes for the work day. They look great, you'd never know these are motorcycle-specific footwear. Comfortable on and off the bike, adequate support and protection. They fit true to size, use the spot-on sizing chart provided by Revzilla and spare yourself a return.
