The desert’s stony tracks are far behind you now, the wind from the snowy peaks is already starting to push your bike off track. There’s nothing like adventure, but your need the right equipment to face it. The Kisoro ankle boot ensures elevated levels of comfort, even after hours and hours of riding, thanks to an excellent fit and ergonomics and a sure grip on the terrain thanks to its off-road sole. Equipped with nylon inserts over the ankle, this waterproof ankle boot boasts a leather upper with split leather inserts on the inner side and inserts in amazingly resilient D-Stone™ fabric as well.
Great for commuting and general riding
Here are my impression based on a few weeks of wear (commuting and general riding).
If you're looking for the MOST ankle and shin protection available - look elsewhere (look at a race boot / MX boot#. These boots have a fair ammount of protection for a commuter boot. I know Dainese markets these as a DP boot - but personally, I'd be looking for a much different boot for that style of riding.
Here was my criteria for a commuting / general purpose riding boot:
-Comfortable on and off the motorcycle
-Reasonalbly stylish for office wear
These exactly met my criteria. A bit pricy, but I'm accustomed to paying for quality footwear. These boots ooze quality. They look much better in person. They feel exceptionaly sturdy, even though they do not have hard shin protection. I feel that the foot and ankle is very well protected. The soles are great, and stick to everything, even in the rain - no slipping at stop signs.
The stiff sole is great for riding long distance #feet won't get tired from bending over the pegs). Can you walk around all day in them? That's personal preference - I personally would prefer to walk around all day in a pair of Nike Free's, but I am also accustomed to walking around / working in sturdy / stiff work boots.
The fit is great for my "wide D" / "Narrow E" foot (Dainese has a rep for running narrow, but I found these pretty average width). I typically wear a 12 or 12.5 US, the 46 is a perfect fit for me. They fit snug without being too tight.
These boots are waterproof! I spent 16 hrs riding in the rain this past weekend (storms + steady rain), and the only thing dry at the end of each day were my feet (I have "waterproof" jacket and pants that eventually succumbed to the weather).
I find that my base layer (dress pants when commuting) will stay tucked in even though this is a mid cut boot. I typically wear my riding pants over my boots, and these boots are high enough to keep your shin from being exposed. If you like to wear your pants as "floods" then you might have a different experience however...
Also of note, if you plan on wearing these around the office - please be aware that they do make a little noise from the outer flap rubbing across the inner flap. I'm just mentioning this in case you were to plan on wearing these in a QUITE professional office. It doesn't really bother me, and I often bring my dress shoes to wear during the work day. Just thought it might be worth mentioning.
Overall I think that the kisoro is a great boot - you certainly are paying a little more for the Dainese name. However, I still think that these boots are worth the coin, and I do recommend them if you have similar needs to mine listed above.

Tom S: "Revzilla is a one stop shop for almost everything I need for my bike. Prices are comparable to other sites. Shipping is free even to military FPO/APO addresses. They will make attempts to price match items if you find them cheaper at other sites. Returns are relatively easy. No restocking fees. There are many videos available for product overviews. Friendly customer service. Great advice from knowledgable staff. They give you honest and practical "advice" based on the type of riding you do and don't just try to sell you on the most expensive stuff. They don't work on commission so there's no reason for them to do that anyway."Dec 3, 2013
A shopper asked:What would you recommend for day to day commuting? Nighthawk vs Kisoro? Also does the Kisoro run small, narrow, etc?
dxm113:I ordered both the Nighthawk and Kisoro with the intent to keep both if I liked them. I much prefer the Kisoro to the Nighthawk. The Kisoro has a larger toe box, and can be better secured to your foot / ankle via the 2 velcro straps. The Nighthawk felt much tighter in the toe box, and loose on the ankle. The Kisoro is heavier due to the more robust sole, and is pretty stiff (which will be great for longer rides).
I wear a size 12 US, and have a "Wide D" or "Narrow E" foot width. I ordered the 46 and the Kisoro fits well - snug around the foot and ankle but not prohibitively tight. I envision that the Kisoro will break in nicely.Oct 5, 2012
