The Dainese Lince GTX Boots are the perfect in-between. Call it Goldilocks Syndrome; not too short, not too tall, but still offering a superb degree of protection and comfort. Featuring the breathable and waterproof Gore-Tex membrane and nylon ankle protection, the Lince Boots are the perfect touring companion.
Nylon inserts on ankles
Boot certified to CE - Cat. II - EN 13634/2010 Standard
I was looking for a more casual boot than my Sidi Discoveries, something I could wear off the bike without looking like Frankenstein's monster. And they had to be comfortable, protective, and waterproof, because they were going to be my main touring boot when not intending to go off-pavement. They are extremely comfortable. Not too hot or clammy, and the sizing is spot on. The heel and ankle protection seems very robust. And though I have yet to ride in the rain with them, yesterday I stopped at a nearby lake and stood in the water up to my ankles for a couple of minutes, with not a hint of dampness. I'm extremely happy with them so far. But they are just short enough that I won't be riding with them in cold weather, as air does get up my pant leg. Should be very nice on hot days though.

Excellent quality materials
The materials and construction are excellent! Sizing is very true considering the European conversion. I have not tested the waterproof capability as of yet, but expect fine results with the liner design. Will update. The only downside is the price, as with most Gore-Tex products.

Exactly as Expected
I bought these boots to replace my Tour Master Solution 2.0 WP boots, which I bought on the spur of the moment to replace my TCX boots which had the zipper blow out. The Tour Masters are one size too big but the Dainese Lince fits perfectly. I'm a Euro size 43, been buying bicycling shoes in that size for decades, and the Lince is spot on. I like the double hook-and-loop fastening because there are no zippers to fail. My commute is only about 7 miles and with thick socks my feet have been fine down to the 20's and 30's. They might be a little warm in the summer but that's a worthwhile trade off. I like the shape and stiffness of the sole, and haven't found that they are uncomfortable to walk in. I think this is a great product and look forward to years of wear.

Nathan B: I was looking for a mid-length height boot that was waterproof with a strong sole and velcro closure that can be stylish enough for wearing at the office on a casual day to short and long distance sport touring.Mar 28, 2014
Thomas L S: I wanted a top of the line Gore-Tex riding boot that I can wear under my uniform pants. Very impressed with the Dainese quality.Jan 20, 2014
Adriano J asked:I have the Dainese Kisoro which looks almost identical. Can you point out the difference?
David M:It appears to me that this is the evolution of the Kisoro, which I own. The Lince seems a bit taller, and has an extra leather panel wrapper around the perimeter of the toe. The sole pattern appears to be slightly different as well. Also, the Lince is certified to the EN 13634/2010 standard, whereas the Kisoro is not.
I am speculating here, but the name change is likely due to the fact that this boot is certified, and the Kisoro isn't. I know from personal experience that it was likely easier / simpler for Dainese to change the name of the product for registration purposes.Feb 1, 2014
Thomas L S:This boot does have some reinforced areas built in for safety and protection. This is not a race boot. A race boot has far more protection built into them. I would say this is a premium touring boot. Break in period for me was one day. I love the quality workmanship that is in any Dainese boot. You may want to look at the Dainese Carroamato boot for more protection.Feb 3, 2014
Andy C:Yes, these shoes deffenetly will provide you with plenty of protection. I would say it's compareable to steal toes, minuse the steal toe part. How ever, with the great protection these shoes provide, it's very stiff. Kinda remind me of wear snowboarding shoes (no flex). Feb 3, 2014
