Created for riders who value comfort first and foremost, the SSC Alpha ankle boot has been designed to ensure an excellent fit and movement thanks to construction with the second-skin concept: this ankle boot with laces fits like a glove, capitalizing on the use of elasticated construction. A waterproof insert gives the wearer matchless comfort even in the rain. Provided with an external TPU casing and a nylon insert on the heel, the SSC Alpha ankle boot also features technical details like elasticated inserts on the inner side, shifter guard reinforcement, and reflective inserts.
Ergonomics and Comfort:
Upper in Lorica® (brand fiber)
Elasticated fabric inserts
Speed lacing system
Waterproof D-Wp interior
High grip TPU inserts
Gear shifter guard
Note: The C2 designation indicates that the boots have gone through the CE Approval process for Europe. The boots are otherwise identical to the previous version they replaced.
Nice protective boot
I like these boots.
They are sturdy with a solid (but not painful) sole. I have a gravel driveway and these catch the gravel just fine when I put my foot down. It's been good on more solid terrain as well.
The ankle bone protectors are nicely reinforced.
I like the quick lace system.
The reflective strip along the Achille's is actually quite visible.
I've noticed that after only a couple weeks the shifter pad is wearing. I'm not so concerned about the look of it, I just hope it isn't the first thing to wear out on the boot.
Don't over-tighten the laces unless you are wearing high socks. Otherwise the top of the boot will agitate your calves. Maybe this is obvious for most folks, but I tend to wear low shoes :)
I wear between an 8.5 and 9 in women's, and I bought the 41s. The 40s were much too tight.

I'm really happy with this purchase. I'm usually wearing a 9.5 and got a 43 which fits perfectly. Shoe is comfortable, no your regular sneakers though so try not to walk miles with it as they are a bit noisy and a bit stiff. Perfect use from my home to the bike and then from parking to office where I just change to office shoes.
Style is nice, they fit under office pants also the style definitely don't match. They look nice under jeans though but I wouldn't wear them to go shopping or wandering though. You get my point.
Highly recommended for commuters.

I've used these shoes for about 5 rides now, no significant complaints. In fact I love them now that I've adapted. The fit and finish is excellent as expected. They were a little more expensive than I wanted to pay, but I am glad I sprung for them. I have a feeling they will last me a long time. Protection seems to be excellent, no real world tests but my feet feel wrapped in glove like armor.
Since they do hug your feet like a glove, I had to go a half size up to fit my big American feet comfortably. Also, they don't breathe really well in summer temps.
Despite that I wouldn't hesitate to pick these up if you're looking for a quality, stylish, durable boot that's still reasonable to walk around in unlike a racing boot.

Jason R: great mix of style and protectionJul 23, 2014
Leo B: I never buy shoes online - I have to try them on to make sure they fit, etc. I live in San Francisco and there actually is a Dainese store here. I really like the look and fit of these boots - pretty good protection yet still comfortable for walking. Unfortunately they were out of my size, so I am buying them from Revzilla instead. With the store's blessing I might add.Apr 2, 2014
teodoro C: Chose this dainese boot because it looks classy, protective and comfortable.Sep 9, 2013
A shopper asked:How does this stack up against the Dyno in protection, comfort? I'm a weekend warrior 1199 PanigaleSep 8, 2013
David R:I can tell you I'm the same,going on all through the week even weekends on the bike so It's the best you can buy! They're very comfortable,they don't look like you're going off road compare to others and still you feel the protection on your feet,they are not so soft so you don't have to worry about the protection system! And look very casual! Hope this works for you.Sep 16, 2013
jerry s:No knowledge of the Dyno. Comfort is great while riding or walking, enjoy the quick style laces. Walked around 110th Harley fest for two days and nights no discomfort. My rides are a 2013 street glide and 2006 big dog mastiff.Oct 2, 2013
