This boot is made in soft cowhide and designed for long-range touring use. The elasticated inserts on the back of the foot, the non-slip outsole, and the gear change guard all increase comfort and practicality remarkably both on and off the bike. This boot also features a waterproof Gore-Tex membrane that suits it for use in even unfavorable weather conditions. Riders are guaranteed extra safety also by the thermoformed and composite inserts provided on the ankle and shin respectively.

Note: The C2 designation indicates that the boots have gone through the CE Approval process for Europe. The boots are otherwise identical to the previous version they replaced.
Zippers have changed
The video review states YKK zips. My boots (manufacture date July 2013) have Opti zippers. Not sure these are better or worse. Just thought I would note the change.
Boots fit small, order a size larger. Comfortable to wear off the bike. Look good. Good quality of construction.

In the reviews for the previous version of this boot, lots of people compared them to Sidi and said they ran larger, and to order one size down from what you wear in Sidis. And the Dainese size chart says that a USA men's size 9 should wear a 42. I wear a USA men's 9, and I wear size 43 Sidis, so I ordered the 42. It is the right length but it is super narrow across the ball of the foot; I think I would have been better off getting a 43 and filling the excess heel volume with orthotics, the way I do with my Sidis.
Note, I usually order men's boots because they are wider. But these are more like the width I would expect in women's boots. I thought they might stretch and break in, but so far they haven't.
The leather on these boots feels like the finest quality shoes. Buttery soft, yet thick. And they are beautiful in a expensive-looking way. It's a pity they are so tight on me. If they fit you, you'll be wearing a fabulous pair of boots.
I haven't been able to bear wearing these, long enough to test them in rain, so I cannot comment on the waterproofing.

Best Boot I've ever bought
My first real motorcycle boots were Hi-Points in 1976. Before that I wore lineman boots. I'm hard to fit, needing a size 15, plus having 8 screws and pins in my feet. These were a bit tight at first but formed to my foot quick. Surprisingly comfortable. Good support too. I wear them riding, working around the house and casual dress wear. I may get another pair keep them polished for taking the wife out to dinner. I ride dual sport, 50/50 dirt street. They haven't been crash tested. Yet.

I have a size 13 foot and had a hard time finding a riding boot that will fit. After trying and returning a few different pairs (thanks Revzilla!) I finally received Dainese Fulcrum and can't be happier. It's slightly narrow but, otherwise, fits me very well. It's also a light and comfortable boot. For the same reason, in my opinion, it offers only a moderate protection. I wouldn't recommend this boot for an aggressive street or MX riding. For normal riding and touring it's a good fit. Also, keep in mind the boot just barely fits under boot-cut jeans. On the other hand, it accommodates tucking jeans in with ease. Lastly, the boot vents well but I haven't tried riding in the rain yet and won't speak of the boot's water-resisting qualities.

Denis M: After having both knees replaced, 6 screws in the right foot, 2 screws in the other, a size 15EE riding boot is hard to find. I was looking for a serious MX boot but couldn't find one that fit. These from Dainese surprised me. The Italian leather at first were tight. But within a couple of days formed to my feet so well that now I wear them all day, for dress, casual, and riding. I rinse the mud off, polish them with black shoe polish then take the wife out to dinner with suit and tie. NiceJan 7, 2014
Thomas R: Reviews state boot is very comfortable. Soft cowhide vs. hard, stiff leather. boots reported to have a narrower footbed. guaranteed for life re; waterproof. uses gortex for waterproofing.Nov 30, 2013
Bryan H: Style, supposed comfort, and decent protective features for a touring commuting boot. Also because of the Gore-Tex lining. I've had Gore-Tex gear before and it works amazingly. I really like Dainese's design and subdued looks. Being able to wear these under pants and not look like a space man is a nice notion. Hoping these fit better than the TRQ Tour boots from Dainese.Sep 16, 2013
Daniel W asked:How thick is the toe protector? I ride a Ducati Monster and the gear shifter often gives me toe pain, so I would like something that is thicker than the toe protector on the Alpinestars SMX-1 boots that I currently wear.Sep 19, 2013
Bryan H:If you mean the shifter pad, it's not very hard/thick. its made of some kind of rubber/plastic material that has some give. Now if you mean the actual toe well, then it feels pretty solid. Kind of like a steel toe boot for example, with maybe a slight give to it, because it is not made of metal. Hopefully that's helpful.Sep 21, 2013
