Dainese Dyno Pro Shoes
Dainese Dyno Pro Shoes
The shoe is good overall. I have a wide foot (E) and struggled very hard to get into it. I had to use a shoe horn. Once in the boot the pain was tolerable, then subsided. The footbed is super narrow. I hope that the leather stretches a bit, to accomadate. The heel cup is also painful as it is tight and for a narrow foot. Mild breathability and true to length. For near 300 you would expect more.
If you have a moderate to super wide foot stay away from these.

Allow for break in, Get what you pay for
These are my first pair of riding shoes, so I cannot make comparisons. I'm coming from the engineer-type laced boot crowd, so these are quite a departure. My foot is on the wide side, but not overly. I wear a size 11 and these fit to size no problem. I often wear them without cinching the laces for a bit looser feel. This is nice; it gives me the option of making the boots more snug as opposed to starting with too tight. Some folks have mentioned that these shoes have a tendency to cut into the top of the foot, and I can confirm that. Out of the box, the right shoe fit perfectly and the left shoe cut into the top of my foot. This was only temporary! After walking around the house for about an hour, taking them off and putting them on a few times, walking around some more, I could tell that the discomfort was part of the break in process. I decided to bite the bullet and clip the tags and get on the bike. Glad I did because these shoes are very comfortable now. The soles are quite stiff so walking has a bit of a clunky-ness to it, but this too is starting to break in. I imagine that anyone who is familiar with race boots, or stiff soled shoes like these, knows and expects this. The construction is excellent as is the protection --- the main reason I bought them. Compared to engineer boots, these will make your feet look really small (something my girlfriend like to bust on me for) but that's just an aesthetic thing. Expensive, but well made, so the "Bang for the Buck" is relative to the high cost.

Another awesome Dianese product.
I am size 9-9.5 and some times wear a wide shoe, I got a size 43 and the fit perfectly on think or thick socks.
The quick laces work perfectly and shoes go on and off quickly.
The shoes are very comfortable to walk in, been riding and walking in them for two days, upto 5 hrs a day.
Tons of protection short of race boots
I found the perfect boot

A Great Boot With Style & Protection
I debated long and hard between full boots or the lower cut Dianese Pro's and I am glad I went with this boot. They provide great protection except in the shin area, but are extremely comfortable on and off the bike. I'm a sport bike rider and like the added style they provide along with the protection. Yes, they are expensive, but when you wear them you'll agree they are worth it. I am a size nine and they fit me true to size.
Give these Boots a try. You won't be sorry.

All around sweet boot
I just upgraded to these from a pair of Alpinestars smx-2 boots that I've had for a couple of years, and the difference is pretty amazing.
I was warned that these boots can be rather narrow, but I have a pretty wide foot and I got these in the same size as my Alpines with no issue. The way the speed laces hug the shoe to your whole foot is surprisingly comfortable. I used to have problems after a few hours with my last pair because the strap across the instep got really uncomfortable even if I wasn't walking around.
The pros to this boot are its style, solid protection, and general comfort.
I was going to list air flow as a con but I'm in GA where mid 80's is a cool day and my feet feel just fine in these. They don't breath much but the inner liner does a fine job of keeping your feet comfortable anyway.
All in all, well worth the money. You do get what you pay for.

Really liked these i normally fit a 9 well and they fit perfect. Feel a little snug but i am sure once i wear them a little more they shall wear in a bit. Nice and easy slide ons, with a tighten strap after you get them on. Thinking about getting the full lenght boot version also.. All in all i really like the boots.

best low cut riding boots around
I have purchased 2 other brands of lower cut riding boots over the last 2 years, both significantly cheaper than the dianese. You can't even compare the fit, quality and durabilty of any other less expensive boot. Bottom line is you get what you pay for. I now realized that I actually lost money by trying to go with a less expensive shoe, only to find myself buying the boot that I should have purchased originally. When it comes to safety, fit and style..........Dianese does it right every time. love all their products. A bit more pricy, but worth it. do it right the first time, and save yourself money from the get go........
