Dainese Forge Shoes
Awesome NON-Riding shoe
Every summer I get myself a nice pair of new casual sneakers for the summer. Instead of getting the usual junky pair of shoes from Aldo (like I usually do every summer) I decided to give these Dainese a try.
Just received them and they are super awesome looking and have the quality you would expect from Dainese.
I would highly recommend these as a non-riding sneaker only. I would never ride with these. Zero protection, even on shift points on left foot there is zero added protection...I'd imagine they would start to rip at some point.
But they look awesome with a pair of jeans on and are very comfortable.

Not a boot, but a reasonable alternative for someone who has to be mobile after riding.
Not a boot, but a reasonable alternative for someone who has to be mobile after riding. Not quite comfortable enough to work on your feet, but, hey, if you really need that, carry shoes, especially when the temperature rises.....

Good riding shoe for those short rides around the city
I bought these shoes because I needed something comfortable to wear on my everyday commute that had some good protection and good style. Dainese shoes were exactly what I was looking for

Excellent riding shoe, but has some issues.
I bought this in the middle of november last year, and rode with them in temps down to 20 degrees with some wool sox on and was comfortable. Im riding with them now in 80+ weather and still feel quite comfortable in them. The soles have a really nice padding on them that reduces the vibration from the peddles and when on the bike they are quite comfortable while providing some ankle support. The shoes also have fairly good traction. The one problem I have with them is within a month seems started to fray. I have little strings constantly unraveling and hanging off the shoes. Also the tongues have a terrible habit of slipping to the side. Also note, except for the surface of the toe for shifting, the shoes offer really no protection, but are extremely comfortable both on and off the bike. If you want a good converse replacement that you can ride with this is a shoe for you.

Very good looking shoe
Just received them. Of course I cannot review yet on durability, but as for appearance, it scores high. Stylish, nice looking shoes that could be worn off the bike for anything, at a reasonable price. I highly recommend them for people who dont want to go the racing boot route. Very happy with the purchase. I wear a size 9 so 42 worked for me. Bought some insoles for a little more comfort

I could wear these everyday!!!
I got these a week ago from the Motorbike shop in town from a buddy of mine who said they'd just came in. Similar to the Dainese Technical Sneakers these aren't much of an easy fit for people who have flat feet, but are easy to get into. I wear a size 10 so a size 10/half was a better fit for me. These shoes are a comfortable/easy fit and the durability and look gives me the courage to abuse them all I want especially for when I'm on the road and traveling. Smooth to get into for whenever I'm in a rush, I could slip right in them and when shifting, they don't bug me at all. I recommend these shoes for people who are built for living.
