Good boot for the price, too narrow I ordered these boots because they were stylish, waterproof, and were a decent price. I read all the reviews that said these fit very narrow, but I had to give them a try anyways. The size I ordered fit everywhere else, but were too narrow. I wore them around the house for a few hours, and realized I just couldn't do it, so I returned them. Maybe if you wear them around for a week or two on the bike they will loosen up, but I didn't want to take that chance for 200 plus dollars. If they fit, I would have kept them. June 2, 2014
Great Boot - I hope So - I only received these boots this morning, so it might be too early for a full review - but I'm off on a four day ride this week, so I'm sure to know more after that. They look great, feel good (well, perhaps a little stiff, but I've only had them on for 2 hrs). After looking, thinking, researching, I ended up coming back to these boots - I think I've been contemplating this purchase for a year or so! My aim is that these will become my day to day commuter boots, with the hope they work well enough in an office environment to wear most days. Anyhow, first impressions. Very nicely made, comfortable and easy to put on. They definitely look low key enough to wear under my jeans/pants at work. The sole is quite stiff, as is the leather, but I'm sure that will soften up a touch. The big thing for me is the fit - after reading all the reviews I went to a size 43, although I'm typically a size 42. I think I probably should have stayed with the size 42. It may be that the American v's European size chat is a little off, I'm not sure, but I often purchase shoes in Euro sizes, and 42 is my go to size. From looking at all the reviews, I can only guess that Dainese may have loosened up the fit a little, as I feel like I have slightly too much space around the main areas of my feet - although the toe box feels a little tight. With the velcro synched up nice and tight, the ankle fit is good. I'm not quite sure if the 42 would be better (my guess is that it would be fine), but to get the boots back and forth from Australia is a bit expensive/time consuming... so I'm going to wear some thick socks and see how they go. If it was more simple, I'd probably go for the 42, and try to loosen them up a bit. Anyhow - they do look great, I'll post back after breaking them in. Oh - and thanks Revzilla - this order came swiftly, with no hassles - love it! June 9, 2014
Great boot. Returned it immediately. I don't think I've ever written a glorious review about an item I immediately returned. The boot is a work of art. Belongs in a museum. But, it's for the very few whose foot size is just below the average and not wide. My foot is not wide but long. I wear 12 in Frye boots and their sizing happens to be perfect for me. But Dainese is an Italian brand and for those who have been in Italy, they like small. Small is quite big in Italy. Size 13 was still not large enough for my foot. The workmanship and craftsmanship are spectacular. I highly recommend it for those among you who are lucky enough to have... Italian feet. June 3, 2014
Perfect boot Well I have just one thing to mention to everyone who is willing to buy this boot, stick to the EU size chart as the US size chart is not accurate it's a size down. May 20, 2014
Very good looking boots, robust construction but very tight fit. These boots are very well made, beautiful leather and workmanship. I've got two issues with them: 1st, they fit a bit on the tight side so get one size up, they will take a while to break in due to their robust construction; 2nd, the padding is very minimal, I would not be able to wear them for longer than my usual commute. These boots were not made for walking... April 29, 2014
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. March 1, 2014
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. December 30, 2013
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. December 17, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Richard B: A great boot. Comfortable and waterproof. Durable and a great value for the price. May 27, 2014
pierre b: sleek design, price and comfort. May 7, 2014
Carlos A: Goretex, style, protection Apr 27, 2014
Adam M: It stands out minimally in it's design, so it looks good either for a cruiser or sport tourer. GoreTex is 99% of my purchase decision. I purchased TourMaster products (Air 2.0 Boots) which were supposedly waterproof, but even covered 90% by a rainsuit soaked my feet in puddles of water. After several tourmaster purchases and having nearly all of them fail in their design, I will never purchase tourmaster products again. I love that your site has video reviews! Mar 13, 2014
David B: These boots were too narrow. Very uncomfortable. I have tried wearing them many times and they always hurt. I took them to a repair shop to have them stretched but they are still not very comfortable. Mar 10, 2014
Braden S: For daily all weather commute and errands about town. Dec 10, 2013
Louis K: Recommendation from friend Dec 7, 2013
Carlo S: I needed a good boot for long rides while not looking like some sort of astronaut. These are low key but provide very nice protection. Oct 5, 2013
Patrick R: Wish I hadn't. They run way too small Sep 30, 2013
C M: A Gore-Tex boot that's comfortable for walking & riding and doesn't scream motorcycle boot. Sep 29, 2013
I G: i liked the review Sep 11, 2013
A shopper asked: Is the Nighthawk suitable for summer, 80 degree wear? May 24, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: No, the Dainese Nighthawk will not be a good summer boot as they are not vented. The Gore-Tex membrane will provide waterproofing, and breathability to evacuate the sweat; but will not provide any type of airflow. May 25, 2012

Slooping60605: Yes, very comfortable and dry even though I ride a very hot bike - air cooled HD 110 with catalytic converter through North Carolina in June. Jun 26, 2012

A shopper asked: How high does the boot come up from the floor? Also how wide is the shoe, average? Nov 17, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris34: For the size 44 I have on, the height numbers from the floor are: 9 inches in the rear; 10 inches in the front.

Width is average all around (tighest in the toes), but as compared to a U.S. size one smaller than what is in the sizing chart (ie. the 44 feels like a U.S. size 10 ... not an 11).

Joel P: The Dainese Nighthawk is known for having a narrow fit. The height of the boot depends on the size; for reference, however, a the top of a median size 41 measures about 8.75" from the floor. Dec 20, 2011
Reply to Joel Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Padron: I'd say mid-calf height. The boot runs narrow. I have slightly narrow feet and the boots are a perfect fit. Apr 30, 2012

A shopper asked: so if I wear 10.5 on regular street shoes and other motorcycle boots I had, I should go 44? Nov 4, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
ADVJason: The Dainese Nighthawk's are true to traditional European sizing, however they can be narrow for some people. Given your 10.5 U.S. shoe size we would recommend a size 44. Nov 15, 2011
Reply to ADVJason Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris34: I wear a U.S. 10 in boots and street shoes and the 44 is just right ... you might be driven to try either a 44 or a 45? May 19, 2013

foobar: Yes, the 44 would be a good fit if you typically wear 10.5 US. Nov 6, 2011

EDWARD L asked: What is the interior leg height on this boot? ie: How many inches/cm from heel to shin ? Sep 1, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Richard B: It's approximately 8.5 inches from heel to the top of the boot. I guess this boot could be considered a "low" or "mid" shin boot. In short, these boots have been very comfortable for both riding and walking a lot of miles. There is a trade-off between some shin protection and comfort regarding this style of boot, but in all, the quality has been outstanding. There are fewer boots that are comfortable for both riding and walking an entire day, but the Nighthawk does both quite well. While not protecting the entire shin area, what is covered is protected quite well with reinforcements and armor plating in all the correct places. Just a side note... I removed the stock boot liner and installed a set of Dr. Sholl's gel liners and the results were fantastic. Certainly a quality investment that I would definitely purchase again. I hope that this helps.

Safe riding :o)

pedalmike: Zeez, I think the length is pretty true to size. My foot is a size 45 and the length was perfect. If you have a wide foot, this is not the boot for you. Sep 5, 2011

Chris K: I recommend going a size up for this particular boot. The flex panels work much better in a size up and the toe box runs a little slim. Jun 8, 2011
