Really great all weather boots
I've been wearing these boots for several months, in moderate to cold weather, and in rainy conditions. The feet stay warm and dry. And like other reviewers have noted, these boots look great and no one would really know they are riding boots unless they saw you on the bike with them.
I usually size 10.5 to 11 and have a large footprint. I bought size 44 and they fit perfectly.
Oh, and you don't have to strain or sweat putting them on.

Great boot at an affordable price
It is a very nice looking and feeling boot. I feel it was worth the price for what you get, better protection than many lesser boots, but not as protective as a full race boot. It does look more stylish than a fully armored boot.

I constantly have to remind myself that it isn't a work boot, and I should not use it for around the house work and wear it out that way.

On the fit, it is a snug fitting boot, not really tight, but your foot has little room to stretch out while inside. Something some people might mind, but doesn't bother me at all.

I really like these boots for a lightweight boot
These fit me well (I always add my own insoles) and I am pleased overall.

I wish I could find something with a little more support and protection for touring without going to beefier boots (I have some of those already). For example my rt is shifter is not forgiving of a big toe box like some of the big sidi adventure boots.

The daytona gtx is a bit better built with a little more shin protection but it doesn't fit me as well (at a higher cost). The ankle area of the Daytona is too loose on me to give me good ankle support. This boot is not tight, but somehow feels like it give me more ankle support.

With boots, good fit is the foundation.

I haven't had these in a good rain yet so I can't comment on how water proof they are. I bought them to be waterproof so I am assuming they are.

My only con is that the sole is thinner and more flexible than I expected or than on any other boot I own. When standing on the narrow metal pegs of my fj-09 it is not very comfortable on the bottom of my feet.

Great boot!
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.

Great Quality
I bought this boot specifically because other reviewers mentioned that they are narrow. That is what I was looking for. I wear a 13 so most boots are very wide as most people who wear a 13 also have wide feet,. Not me. They are not cheap but the quality of the boot is first class in every aspect. Comfort, Style, Protection and wear ability. A thirteen was a size 47 (euro). The zipper is good quality and the Velcro is the full length of the zipper not just a tab at the top like some boots. I checked with a boot repair service to see if they can be re-soled when the time comes and was told he could re-sole them. I highly recommend these boots. Oh ya, I have ridden in heavy rain & my feet stayed dry.

Nice boot!
I just received my Fulcrum boots today and went for a short ride on my new BMW R1200RS. This won't be the most in depth review, but here are my impressions:
One: very comfortable right out of the box.
Two: The size is good, a little roomy (I'm a euro size 45, US: 11 1/2).
They'll be great when the weather is cooler. I'm in So Cal and its hot now, on Oct 31!
Three: Hard to fit Levis' 501 jeans over them, as in...not possible.
Four: Vanson leather pants tuck into them perfectly and comfortably, and ...look the part!
Now the funny part: I put the boots on and sat on my bike in the garage and thought that the sole of the boot was too sticky to slide off the peg to shift and that the toe was too tall to get under the shifter and that there wasn't enough "feel" to be confident on the bike changing gears and braking. However, once under way and riding, I forgot about what the dry run in the garage felt like and the boot didn't get in the way at all! I think that this will be a very long lasting and useful touring boot for me.

Great purchase, very satisfied
I took delivery about 2 days before I left on a 8,625 miles in 21 day Harley tour from south Florida to Toronto to Sturgis to Montana and return. So, absolutely no break-in time or special care before hand.

My feet, on a foot sizing tool are exactly 11C. These boots fit perfect with the heavy socks I like to wear. Without socks they are a bit loose as you would expect.

On this trip, I saw heat, cold, sun, rain and even hail. While my body was exposed to about 50 to 95 degrees on this trip, my feet always stayed very comfortable. Never cold, wet or sweaty. The soles are flexible enough that I walked a lot in them sometimes not even remembering I was still in them instead of my daily hiking boots that I love so much. As It turned out, I happened to test their strength at the border toll booth. As I was rolling slowly up to the agent with my feel hanging down hovering above the ground next to the side of the bike, my left toe caught the curb that I didn't realize was higher and closer that I determined. It grabbed the boot and twisted it back and dragged it really hard along the curb. The toe and side surface was ground down pretty bad but the structure and the waterproofing were not affected.
As a comfortable touring boot, I couldn't ask for more. The quality of construction is great and the leather is premium too.
However, I can say that for my adventure bike, I want a little more rigid construction and more aggressive armor just because I am more likely to go down than not!!
Thanks, Revzilla

Beautiful Boot with excellent comfort
I got these boots hoping the sizing was correct. I usually wear a size 45 Sidi boot. The 44 Dainese was perfect, they are incredibly comfortable. I did a 2,100 mile tour in these with temperatures ranging from 33 degrees and raining to 80 degrees and sunny and my feet never got cold or hot. I would highly recommend this boot to anyone that wants a great touring boot.

Boots run about 1/2 size small. Fit is great, very comfortable from Day 1. I have been riding with these boots from 39 - 95 degrees F with no issue hot or cold. I highly recommend these boots and would buy them again!

Worth every penny
If you are looking for comfort, style and decent protection in motorcycle boots, you will need to open your wallet. I have done over 5000 miles so far in these boots, and they have passed every test with flying colors: From snow and 26 degrees F, to heavy rain, to 102 degrees F. I have also walked around town in them but not long distances. Without exception they have been incredibly comfortable. They are also durable as they show almost no signs of wear. I hesitated to spend this much on boots, but they are absolutely worth every penny.

TEX1200 on May 17, 2016
After a seemingly endless research period, I chose these boots based on several key criteria. The Italian aesthetic, in combination with a design that stresses protection and wearability in a waterproof skin at a reasonable price, seals the deal for me.

For quality boot that fits a narrow foot.
IdahoRider on May 1, 2015
To serve as both a Roading Touring boot as well as a Dual Sport Boot.
They definitely have served me well in both areas of riding. I no longer even pull my SIDI Adventure Boots out of the closet when I go offroad.
Trust Me, these are without a doubt the most comfortable boots out of the box that I could have ever imagined.
I've even used them twice to feet cows, when we had Mud conditions up to my ankles.
Russell B on Mar 26, 2015
I like the overall style of the Fulcrm, the GoreTex lining, and the good level of protection while still being a good walk about boot.

Outstanding Boot. Very comfortable and very waterproof. Fits nicely under the shift peg. Comfortable during the ride or waling around. Dainese quality.

My girl just got the Dainese Stella GTX and they are great. I wanted a comfortable boot for my Street and ADV riding that were Gore-Tex with thick comfortable cowhide uppers that need no breaking-in time.
Raymond W on Jul 8, 2014
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. Nice
Denis M on Jan 7, 2014
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.
Thomas R on Nov 30, 2013
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.

Catherine L on Sep 5, 2016
Some of the reviews of this boot state that it runs a bit small. I wear a size 43 Sidi On-road boot. Should I order a size 43 or 44 in the Dainese?

Thanks, Ken
Kenneth T on May 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I can't exactly confirm for you but I have two Dainese boots, both 44 and they both fit true to size and I have a pair of Sidi shoes for my road bike , (as in peddle bike;-), that are also 44. Hope that helps some.
I am looking at the Dianese fulcrum boots and wondering about the sizing - I normally wear size 11us sizing - Should I go with the 44 or 45 ?
Rob E on Feb 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: One data point -- Size 48 fit me best on a US size 13 / 13.5
If you have a narrow foot then these take an OTC insole and I would round up a size to accommodate -- but then the fit is super.
Can I use paste shoe polish on these boots? If I did, would it cause any problems with the boots?
A C on Aug 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I used Kiwi shoes polish on them without ant issues.
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.
Lowcountry on Sep 19, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
I wear a 49 in Alpinestars which according to A-stars is a 13.5. In Dainese a 49 is a 14.5. Does anyone have any advice on this?
