Dainese Nighthawk Gore-Tex Boots
Great quality boots but very narrow
I really liked this boots, unfortunately I had to return them because they are too narrow. I'm very sorry because they look a very high quality product. I definitively recommend them if they fit your feet.

Excellent boots, great fit and waterproof.
The Dianese Nighthawk looks and performs great. I work in an office environment and have worn them all day with no issues or soreness. I have narrow feet, which makes it difficult to find boots that fit. The Nighthawk are on the narrow side so they fit great. I live in the northwest, which means riding in the wet weather - these boots keep my feet dry.

Incredible Boot, A Must Buy
I have now ridden over 10,000 miles with these boots. They are the best piece of equipment I've ever purchased.
I've ridden my FZ6, Fat Boy LO and Nightster while wearing this boot.
So, I was very hesitant about this boot initially because of both the price and the style. I wasn't certain that the boots would give the best bang for the buck, but I will tell you, I was wrong.
My initial impressions were eased by a few multi-hour cruises around Philadelphia and New York City. In pot-hole and road debris laden conditions and in variable speed riding you'll want these boots protecting your feet. The sole has a very solid feel and yet is comfortable to walk in, as I'll explain momentarily. The outer skin is virtually bullet proof and protected my foot when a leading rider threw a large piece of metal debris toward my foot peg. We were all, unfortunately, riding a little too close and there was no room for avoidance maneuvering. So I had no choice but to grin-and-bear-it. Long story short - the boot took the hit and served me well.
Comfort. At first, like any boot, it's stiff as heck. But after a few weeks of frequent use as my primary footwear for rides it started to loosen up. Me and some friends rode from New Jersey to Key West in November. Since we rode and didn't trailer, space was at a premium. I chose to use these boots as primary footwear both on and off the bike until I got into the 80 degree weather. They served me just fine as primary off-bike footwear and caused no blisters or discomfort.
I highly recommend these boots.

does the job
i bought those shoes a few months ago. i had them on while riding in a very cold and rainy weather, they did the job very well. they kept my feet dry and relatively worm.
they are comfortable enough to wear all day and they look ok to me.
i tried to wear them in the last days of summer and it was too hot for me so i stored them untill winter came and now they are awesome.
i had an accident with them and they just saved my feet, they offered the right amount of protection i needed and still survived with minor signs of an accident.
the great thing is that it still have it's waterproof ability and i still use it as if nothing had happend.
great product. i recommend it!

Not what I really wanted
This was a substitution for a different pair of boots that I wanted. They rise up higher on my calf then I wanted. Very uncomfortable right now. I would have returned them except that I had worn them outside and could not. They are very stiff right now. I had a hard time "feeling" the shifter in them.
Right now I don't really like them. But I will do a follow up review once they have broken in.

Nice style, unimpressive quality and durability
A nice, practical boot with excellent styling. Boot runs small and some quality problems, which resulted in 2 returns until I got an acceptable boot. Revzilla customer support was excellent. Boot looks nicer in the pictures as it's a bit shinier in real life. Zipper and velcro make for easy on and easy off. Was caught in a monsoon downpour with 6 inches of water on the roads splashing up on my boots for 30 minutes. Feet remained dry. After a few months of daily commuter wear, the boots have remained pretty stiff and I don't think these will hold up as well as my previous Sidi boots made of lorica. The leather gets scuffed up pretty easily in comparison to lorica.

EXACTLY AS ADVERTISED
I have a narrow foot and it is hard to find a boot that fits. THIS IS IT! True to size.

I wear a 10us I ordered the 44eu 11us slightly long
I wear a 10us,, I ordered the 44eu 11us based on reports of running small,,, slightly long fitting definitly tight fitting when new but breaking in nicely now with plenty of breathing room once broke in an that took some time. I have had these for a few years now they are not my everyday boot though. I posible could have gone down 1/2 size as I feel they are slightly longer than I would for a perfect fit,,,,I would rather have the room for thicker socks an room to breath over being to short though. zippers cake up with mud if you use them in the mud I have used these in some slippery conditions for sure an the have held up only wet if it comes over the top. I used them atv riding in the cold wet fall. touring I find them warmer than I want I don't like being hot
