Dainese TRQ-Tour Gore-Tex Boots Videos

Dainese TRQ-Tour Gore-Tex Boots

A TeamZilla favorite, the Dainese TRQ-Tour boots are perhaps the best option for commuting, or sport touring. Collectively, we have put thousands of miles as well as a few crashes on the Dainese TRQ line and they never fail to impress. Recommended as a 3-season cold-weather boot that stretches nicely into the warmer months with Gore-Tex breathability, the TRQ-Tour Boots are the kind of protection that you will forget to take off!  The axial hinge provides excellent protection, while allowing for comfortable movement as you walk. In addition, the rear entry zipper allows for easy entry/exit to the boot. 


  • D-Axial jointed anti-ankle twist back system in TPU
  • Nylon toe TPU rear shinguards
  • TPU heelcounter
  • Nylon heel
  • Cowhide leather
  • D-Stone fabric
  • Elasticated bellows
  • Elasticated inserts
  • Internal regulation with VELCRO® brand closures Closing with zipper at the back
  • Waterproof / Breathable Gore-Tex membrane
  • High grip TPU inserts
  • Padded insert for gear shifter guard
  • Reflective inserts
  • Non-slip sole
  • Italian patent pending
  • Microelastic elasticated inserts(PCT Patent Pending)


We highly recommend finding a cloth tape measure and taking the time to take these measurements. Dainese sizes will not necessarily correlate with fitment in other brands.

  • Chest: Measure from under/top of armpit across chest to under/top of other armpit, then across back to first armpit
  • Waist: Measure at the hourglass of your torso, (circumference measured at your belly button)
  • Hips: pelvic bone to pelvic bone, the widest part of your hips below the waist
  • Inseam: from crotch to big ankle bone
  • Outseam: from waist to big ankle bone
  • Gloves: Using a flexible measuring tape, measure around your hand, behind the knuckles, not including the thumb.

Dainese TRQ-Tour Gore-Tex Boots 4.5 5 144 144
Worth the money Bottom line up front = worth. every. penny. I followed other reviews and went one size up (typically wear size 10-10.5 depending on the shoe/boot; purchased size 11 and it worked fine). I bought these right before a short duration but long distance (2000+ mile) road trip, which included riding in unexpected wet weather and temps below 40 degrees and up into the 80s at times. Result = feet remained warm, dry, and comfortable throughout the trip. Could not be happier with my purchase; highly recommend. Note: The toe bed is slightly more narrow than your typical shoe, but even for my wide feet it was not something I noticed while riding or felt uncomfortable with after wearing the boot for more than 5 min. Don't let that dissuade you if you're interested in purchasing a great boot that will last for years. November 23, 2015
It's OK I went to the Revzilla store (I live about an hour away) and salesman sold me on these. I dislike the look, and they don't fit me very well (feels tight in toe and loose in heel). But they were a relatively good value and seemed to offer good protection / features. So overall, I'd say it's a 3 out of 5. For the money wish they fit a little better and I liked the looks more. As it is now, I wear them, but always bring a pair of sneakers if I'm going to get off and do any walking about. November 16, 2015
ANKLE PROTECTION ANKLE PROTECTION ANKLE PROTECTION So how does anyone choose a boot? $100 $200 $300 $400 ??? I was in the RevZilla store and CJ says there's one boot to consider if you want ankle protection. Who doesn't? He showed me these. Sold. I have worn them for 1000 miles about. They do the job. They look good. They don't get in the way. The rear zipper is smart and quick. The boots just work. And they protect your ankle like no other. They call it Axial something. Check it out. Makes sense and for anyone who doesn't want a broken ankle in a simple crash they will pay for themselves easily. Easily. Get these boots. November 2, 2015
Excellent boot - very happy with purchase As I normally do, I waited a few months after buying this product before submitting a review... I like to make sure my opinion is based on at least a little experience and not just on how good something looks right out of the box. But in this case I needn't have bothered. These things DID look great right out of the box, the level of build quality was pretty obvious, and then they met or exceeded my expectations for comfort and function (i.e., waterproofness) ever since. I've worn them for 2500 miles or so, which obviously isn't a ton, but some of those have been long ride days (8-9 hours, back-to-back), a few were in wet conditions, and one of the longer rides was (unfortunately) in a pretty bad downpour for most of the trip. I haven't tested their protective features (and hopefully never will), but they certainly appear to be robust in that regard. Fit ran a little small for me. I am a U.S. 10 so based on the size chart I had expected to need a 43. But luckily I was in Philly on business and zipped by the Revzilla store to try them before buying, and the 44 was definitely a better fit. They felt great right out of the box and the fit has enough flexibility for me to go with a thinner or a thicker sock. Either way I've enjoyed long ride comfort. Overall, can't say enough good about them - great purchase. October 19, 2015
Not sure if they're worth the money Definitely feel like my foot and ankle are protected in these but are they worth that price tag..? I guess you wouldn't know until you got in an accident and actually tested them in a crash. They're goretex meaning they breathe pretty well and are waterproof. Still think that there are good cheaper alternatives. Overall, nice boot but pricey - kind of like most dianese stuff.. September 25, 2015
Seriously? I agree with the other reviews that a lack of protection for the vinyl on the end of the toe and the fact that the sole doesnt even extend to the end of the toe is going to kill this boot. One walk across a gravel parking lot and the underside of the toe is nicked up in several spot. One even goes all the way through the vinyl. (see pic of how much of the underside of the toe is exposed) If a boot cant handle a walk across a gravel parking lot then there is no way it will handle the daily abuse I will put it through. Granted, the nicks are small and the boot isnt shredded... but I only walked to and from a bathroom once. If I get 3 nicks each time... it wont take long. On top of that.. why is the vinyl on the toe so thin? A thicker material would absorb the cuts. Poor design imo. They are cool looking boots, very comfortable, extremely light. They fit like ecco hiking boots imo. I wear a 44.5 in ecco and the 44 dainese fit me fine. A little tight in the heel but they broke in after a bit of walking around. I tried the Torque RS out at the same time in a 45 and found them to be too big. I wish the TRQ boot had a similar internal configuration as the Torque RS out. It has easier rear entry, and internal lace to snug it up, and hard plastic on the achilles. The torque RS out was not comfortable to walk around in compared to the TRQ. I want to like these boots but that toe issue is ridiculous for a high end boot. The torque RS had protection for the toe! Id say spend the money on something else unless you dont plan to do anything but ride in these... like walk or kneel. Since I cant return them, I plan to take them to a shoe company and see if they can fit in some protection for the underside of the toe. Maybe a piece of black duct tape. I expected more from these boots. September 14, 2015
Really wanted to like them, but returning. Bought these with the intention to keep them, but the narrow toe box and the inflexible shifter pad just didn't make these really nice boots work for me. I'm normally a US size 10 shoe, and these were a tad narrow, and a tad long. The upper material is REALLY flexible and nice, and breathes well, but because of that, the shifter pad doesn't want to flex when I bend my toes, and the pad just keeps rubbing my foot in the wrong places. And as others have said, the toe box is also pretty narrow (though not as "crazy" narrow as some Italian shoes I've tried before), and just enough to make my toes feel a little cramped. However, other than that, the boot feels GREAT. I really loved how good the boots felt from the arches back and up the boot leg. Fits like a custom made garment - snug and comfortable. Too bad about the toe box - at the end of the day, the front half of the shoe is making me return these in favor for something else. It's a great boot if you have narrow feet and will fit the shape! August 29, 2015
Great features......except one. What on earth are these two VERY irritating sponge pads inside the boots right below the ankle bone? I can't believe no one has mentioned these VERY irritating pads. I'm trying to figure out a way to remove them but I don't want to cut through the Gortex membrane. Any suggestions? Thanks.. Mike in Bethesda, Md. August 24, 2015

Charlie P: very good Oct 20, 2015
" ": Great set of boots. I used them for over 3+ months on a trip and they were comfortable and protected my feet on a couple off-roading layovers. They were comfortable for moderate walks and short (non-technical) hikes. Oct 17, 2015
Kenneth L: Revzilla Video Oct 3, 2015
Matty F: Gore Tex is waterproof. ONLY GORE TEX IS WATERPROOF! Sep 27, 2015
vaughn r: Protection Protection and of course Dainese styling! Sep 15, 2015
anthony m: love them! Sep 10, 2015
William M: I have long narrow feet, this provided best fit with waterproofing for long trips! Aug 12, 2015
Kevin M: I was looking for a little more protection from a long distance tourer and it hasn't disappointed. Great winter boot but, I'd leave them at home for temps above 85 degrees. Aug 6, 2015
David M: Fit Jul 17, 2015
Rob S: 4 season commuting, protection, gore-tex. Jul 11, 2015
Mark P: Just did 2500 mile tour. Smooth soles are a problem if any sand or dirt is on pavement. Foot slips when trying to push bike backwards! boot construction has excellent ankle protection, e-z on/off with zipper on the back. Waterproof / Gore Tex. Excellent fit and good to walk in too. Jul 3, 2015
Dean S: closest boot to a race boot but still offering some touring comfort Jul 1, 2015
Xi C: Awesome ankle protection and style Jun 5, 2015
Jeff S: the ones I got first were too large Jun 1, 2015
George B: chose this over my first choice Fulcrum after seeing ZLA award and better protection; still not sure.... May 1, 2015
Rob S: Was looking for a solid 4 season boot for commuting duties, and didn't want to skimp on protection. Plus all the reviews make it hard not to take a chance on something like this. Apr 27, 2015
J A: I wanted something that was going to give me great protection for the street, looked good and from a quality brand. Apr 23, 2015
Bill H: Wanted higher protection on shin as well as ankle protection. Apr 22, 2015
Kevin S: A good all year boot Apr 14, 2015
Joseph O: I feel safer riding high miles in these Apr 8, 2015
Matthew G: I commute in these, so I was looking for waterproof, protective, and reasonably comfortable. What really caught my eye was the sole, advertised as being particularly sticky on the pavement. My feet have stayed dry and reasonably comfortable. Thankfully I can't speak to protection. Two complaints: the hard parts sqeak (I've lubed them with short-term effects), and my feet seem to slip as much on wet pavement as they ever did in other boots. I'd give them 3/5. Apr 4, 2015
Mark S: Better protection than my current tour boots and narrow fit Feb 9, 2015
John Z: the review was great and fit my needs Feb 9, 2015

Brett B: Revzilla recommendation and great reviews Nov 8, 2014
Steven S: I was looking for Gore-Tex (check), something with a more streamlined and simple design (check), and something with good safety and protection features (check). I am very much looking forward to this winter with these boots. I rode all last winter with Sidi Fusion Air boots (I LOVE those boots, but they are not really good for winter temperatures sometimes in the 30's here in Texas). Upgrade successful...at least for the 3 months it's "cold" here. Oct 3, 2014
John N: Good reviews. Sep 24, 2014
Daniel C: Wear these boots around town, nearly every day. Hard to beat for all around motorcycle boots and they're Gore-Tex! Sep 23, 2014

Steven C: I was torn between the fulcrum and this boot. I chose this boot because of the added safety features. Apr 18, 2014
Kenneth B: Good looking durable boots Mar 22, 2014
Michael L: These boots are remarkable. Sizing runs small. If you're on the bubble between sizes, order the bigger boot. It will save you the exchange. Boots are so comfortable that sometimes I forget I'm wearing highly technical, protective footwear. Absolutley worth the higher expenditure! Mar 3, 2014
A s: I needed an easy-in-easy-out protective boot for my commute.
Waterproof is nice!
Mar 1, 2014
A s: Chilly toes Feb 23, 2014
William K: old Tourmaster boots worn out Feb 21, 2014
Timothy C: High quality and features as shown in your video demo on the item page, good reviews from prior purchasers Feb 21, 2014
John S: Revzilla's recommendation for waterproof touring boot and liked the looks and features. Feb 11, 2014
Jordan K: The safety features, gore-tex, and Revzilla recommendation at this price make this boot worth a try. Comparably priced boots seemed to be lacking either the level of safety features or the waterproof capability, whereas this boot has both. I am also looking for a quality product that I won't have to replace in a year. I ride a lot for transportation and wear my boots off the bike when I get to my destination. If these boots fit my wide foot, I should be good. Feb 5, 2014
Jeffrey D: I wanted a weather proof boot that would increase my comfort and safety. Jan 17, 2014
Mathieu F: waterproof gore-tex, including throughout the zipper. Perforated leather provide cool flow in summer. Very comfy. Jan 3, 2014
Brian S: Based mainly on Anthony's reviews of similar boots this seemed most suited for my type of riding. Also like some of the design features. Jan 3, 2014
Harold B: Extremely comfortable Dec 24, 2013
Nelson Ariel L: I was looking for some commuting boots with waterproof capacity and, given the good advice I received from CS, I chose these ones. Look great and are perfect for me since I have a sport bike. Dec 20, 2013
GREGORY D: super dope, comfort, safety Nov 16, 2013
Jennifer R: I chose these boots for style and features and user comments. I have used them all summer and partially into the fall, but I will not review these until after winter is over. Then I can tell you how they performed throughout the year. So far, I am very happy with these boots! Oct 12, 2013
Morris B: Waterproof with tons of protection and stylish. Oct 1, 2013
Paul W: The review from Anthony at first. Once received I love the look and they feel great! Sep 29, 2013
John H: I've always had good luck with Dainese brand gear, need waterproof commuting boots for the Seattle winter. Sep 23, 2013
Steven L: Narrow footbed in a quality boot is hard to find, and this works! Sep 18, 2013
Bryan H: Chose these based on looks, protective features, and the gore-tex liner. Sadly I could not wear these. The heel cup was cutting deeply into me and it was a bit narrow and constrictive on my toes. After an hour sit on the couch and taking them off my heels were in pain and they actually left an indention in the sides of my heels for the next day. Sep 16, 2013
Anthony R: Need a protective water-proof touring boot. This fit the bill. Sep 14, 2013
Formations Design Group, L: VIdeos of all the boots I looked at and these seemed the best for me because of the narrow fit and the protection and quality Aug 31, 2013
Nicholas S: I tried a dozen boots and the overall was this one; or another Dainese product. Gore Tex and armor on these are great comfortable enough (I removed the sole pad and put in a Dr. Scholl half sole; which works just fine Aug 30, 2013
Denise V: I was going crazy after viewing tons of video's of various boots and decided to ask for help. This boot was recommended to me by Revzilla assistant Tony Costanzo via email after learning what type of riding I do, kind of bike I own, and my narrow foot problem. I had even sent him a link of me sitting on my bike. This boot looks to be a perfect bridge between comfort and protection and its looks are a fine balance between technical and touring. I can hardly wait to try them. Aug 28, 2013
A shopper asked: I usually wear a shoe size of 9.5 US. I noticed in the sizing chart skips from 9 to 10 what size would be recommended for these boots? Feb 18, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
ChrisVA: I would err on the larger side and go with the 10. These boots have very stiff toe boxes and they will probably never break-in/expand. Plus they seem to run a tad small. I have US 11.5 TRQ-Tour, and most shoes that size would probably be a little too big for me, but the boots are a snug fit. Aug 4, 2012
Reply to ChrisVA Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
rhardcore: I often wear a 9.5/10 as well. This is an Italian brand, so the sizes are in European. That is why there is the jump. I find that the EU43 (which they label as a US10) fits me well, but I can sometimes wear a 10 anyway.

I used mine all winter and my feet never got cold or wet and I typically only wear black dress socks. So, I didn't need to get this boot a half size larger for thicker socks. Of course, I am from VA so my winters don't get as cold as yours. Toss on the socks you will use in the season you will use the boot and see how it is. You generally want it tight enough that your heel stays in the heel cup.

I would suggest trying a EU42 first. Walk around in your carpeted home for a several hours and see if they are too snug for you. They should definitely not cause you any discomfort. The back has the calf adjusters to fit different size calves. You will probably need to adjust those either way.

I wear mine every day, on the bike, at the store, at work...

A S asked: I've now settled between this boot and the Alpinestar grand tarino gortex for my sport touring / street corner carving. Multiuse needs. I'm really liking the light armor on these. But I'm curious how bad they squeek? I've never owned a multi plastic hinge skate that didn't squeek. So wondering about these... When new and after they have some use? Because I will wear out whatever I buy? Jul 13, 2014

Brian T: Mine have about 6k miles on them, and they've always squeaked a bit. Nothing at all like a motocross hinged boot, though, so it doesn't bother me. I mix on-road and light off-road with these, and they still look almost new. These are great boots. Jul 16, 2014

Wiley M: Mine squeek a little after I've ridden in the rain, but it goes away...I think I remember shooting a little silicon spray into the joints also...my boots haven't squeeked in a long time, can't remember the last time...they are great boots! Jul 18, 2014

Brian S: Yes, there is a bit of squeaking from the hinge. Because it does not bother me, I have not tried a graphite or similar product to perhaps solve the issue but suspect that it would do the job. Great boot. Jul 15, 2014

John A: They don't squeak at all, very comfortable, and probably the best boot for the money. I will buy another pair when they go on sale, as the one I have is showing no signs of abnormal wear. Very pleased. Jul 16, 2014

TrojanMenace: The inner booty opens as much as any other race boot with an inner booty. With that said, I have smaller calves and they are almost perfect fitting on my leg (less than half an inch of space from my calf to the edge of the booty, see photo). Hope that helps! Jan 20, 2012
Reply to TrojanMenace Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
gsxdashr600: I've had the same challenge with boots in the past. Hard to measure opening because it's tapered and could be larger for bigger sizes, but my calves are 15 1/2" and size 43 works fine for calves, even over suit, because of the velcro flap feature. May 16, 2012

07Guzzi: So do I (5'10" 235lbs). I had knee surgery that left some permanent swelling in one calf. Having the ability to adjust each boot is great. Both legs can be different diameters- adjust accordingly. Jul 9, 2012

sourjya g asked: I am looking for a waterproof breathable boot that protects my foot in case of a low side and at the same time can be worn under a pair of jean.

Should I got with these (Dainese TRQ-Tour Gore-Tex) or Dainese TR-Course Out D-WP Boots ? Or should I look elsewhere?

I plan to use them in my daily commute to and fro work and also for touring distances not more than 300-400 miles at a time.
I ride a Kawasaki Z800 2015 in rain and temperature range of 50 to 100 degs throughout the year. Also, I would want to walk in them in pavement/tarmac/building but not more than a mile a day.

Steven L: You cannot go wrong with the TRQ for what you describe. I use the boot for my commute and for, yes, touring every chance I get. Takes some breaking in so you do not sound like a Star Wars storm trooper, but I occasionally walk any where from 3/4 to a mile in them with no problem. I worry more about wearing the sole out than anything else. Granted, not quite as much protection in event of going down as the TR-Course, but still super protection beyond most other boots, can be worn under street clothes (jeans, etc.) an look similar to one of the newer jazzed up sneakers.

Chad H: These were my first motorcycle specific boots so I have a limited basis of experience. I find the boots comfortable except for the toe box, which is very tight. They have loosened up some, but thicker socks still feel very tight. While riding the discomfort doesn't seem to be an issue, but on days were I have the boots on for most of the day, the toes can get rather uncomfortable. I have ridding in temps ranging from 30-95 degrees F and have been comfortable, although on hot days your feet will sweat.
Since purchasing the boots I have worn them every time I am on the bike and overall I rate them as a great purchase. I am still hoping that as the break in more the toe will get more comfortable, but aside from the somewhat stiff action and squeak they emit when I walk, I have no problem wearing them all day.
Rain protection is still unproven, but I have worn them in light drizzles and have had dry feet.

Michael C: I think the TRQ-Tour Gore-Tex is a better choice for commuting and wet days, fits better inside the jean, and is more breathable and comfortable as the liner is Gore-Tex. The TRQ-Course has the toe slider, but that is only useful if you are leaning to the point of scraping the toe, and I don't think you do that during your commute or in the rain... May 24, 2015

A shopper asked: Just wanting to get a better idea on sizing, especially as wanting to order from Australia, making returns a bit harder. I read several reviewers indicTing these boots run tight. I am a 43 in Dianese Nighthawks, and many of my other non ridin shoes are 43. Will a 43 in these be best or should I go to 44's of they run tight? Jan 28, 2015

Michael C: I am right in between a 41 and 42 for Dainese boots. When I wear 42, I lose some feeling when shifting because the shifter panel is not quite in the right place on my foot, and also when I'm walking it's not snug enough so my toes are getting dragged around and pinched.

When I wear 41, it feels better while riding but while walking a bit too snug, so what I did is remove the inner sole protector, and the fit is perfect both riding and walking. The boot is so comfortable with incredible longevity inside and out that you don't really need the sole protector.

Lionel L: These are fantastic boots, but unfortunately the pair I bought and exchanged for one size larger are still too small.

Normal dress shoes sizes for me: US 9, UK 8-8.5, and Eu 42.5-43.

I ordered the Dainese in 43, in was way too small, and exchanged for 44.

Wearing normal medium thickest sports socks, width was fine, but found the boots a bit short, hitting the toes in the front. Can't wear them anymore after my trip.

It would have worked better for me with 1.5 size larger.

Good luck.

A shopper asked: Zipper-related question. Does anyone have a technique for keeping the rear zippers from unzipping? On several rides the zipper slides down 1/3 from the top. If this has happened to you, has anyone found a way to prevent that? I tried using the Velcro to make it a little tighter. Will try looser. But anyone else's prior experience would be welcome.

I ride often and about a 1/3 of the time get that slippage. I will make an effort to make sure I am zipping all the way to the top and being sure the 'pull tab' is in the down position.

Steven L: There boots have the full length, down-to counter rear zipper, with the velcro adjustable calf bellows and Gore-tex gaiter (see the Revzilla video), I have relatively narrow calves, so adjust tight in, There is no lacing system; the boots run Dainese-narrow (which I like). I am a size 12 US, but ended up with a EU 47 to accommodate various levels of sock(s) by season/weather. Good, comfortable boot.

Jeffrey K: Hi Jonathan,

The TRQ-Tour boot doesn't have any laces at all: you slip your foot in and zip up the rear zipper. It works perfectly fine for me, and I've never missed a lacing system.

The only thing I wish the boot had was toe sliders - not that I've ever dragged a toe.

Overall, I love this boot.

James M asked: So im trying to decide which size to get, im a Size 11 but i have kinda wideish feet at the toes not sure which boot to get wether the 44,45 or 46 as all the feedback i read is the boot runs small? Apr 16, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael H: I'm a 10 1/2 and I went with a 44. I don't have wide feet but these are just a tad too small for me and I should have gone with a 45. Unfortunately I thought they might stretch out over time but they haven't. I bought mine in May of 2012 and they haven't given much at all. It's the toe box that's the issue with the fit. It's narrow. The boots fix very well everywhere but start to pinch closer to my toes.

That said, I still wear them when I ride in the summer and know that I'm not going to have to do a lot of walking because they are amazing boots. I like them enough to put up with a little discomfort when walking because they are so comfortable when riding.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Steven L: I use these under either Dainese Drake Air pants (which are tight and narrow) or various overpants (winter). I put on a pair of my 501's and tried the boot on and the pant leg went over fine, with a better fit than the jeans over a western or engineer boot because this boot is not stovepipe designed. I imagine the fit will vary depending on your calf adjustment in the boot. I have the adjustment at full in/smallest since my calves are not large. Likely fine over a boot cut jean. Super satisfied with this boot by the way. May 2, 2015

Robert C: I drove to Revzilla and tried on several different pairs of boots. I tried the TRQ as I wanted a higher protection level. The first pair were a little tight, I had the salesman bring out another pair of TRQ's and I bought the second pair. The first pair were a bit too tight. The second pair fit was better. I like the boots. I have had them for several months now and they still feel good and look good. I wear them on local trips to the store and they have developed a squeak when I walk around.

Lee F: The only time it happens to me is if I do not zip them to the very top.

It has only happened once or twice but to find out why was very important to me. I proved it by leaving the zipper down a bit on one or the other boot and rode for a bit.

I ride a FJR 1300 so fairly up-rite riding position. However when I "haul the mail"that changes. Riding position will make it easier for this to happen if you do not zip the boot fully.

I love these boots over the last 15,000 miles and as long as you zip them fully you should be problem free.

Kenneth G: I have these boots and absolutely love them. I was worried about the zippers coming down during riding/walking myself, but haven't yet had that problem. The solution I thought of (and will use if the zippers do start to fall) is this: attach a piece of material - nylon ribbon or a leather strip - to the zipper pull. When the zipper is at the top, stick the material in between the velcro sizing panels. For extra security, you could probably use a velcro strip attached to the zipper pull. Hope that helps.

Mitchell G: I have not had this problem, but I'm sure it's an easy fix for a shoe maker. The only thing I can think is that the boat is tight around your calfs. Try expanding the boat wider by loosening the Velcro.

Dave C: I typically get about 40000km out of these boots (while wearing them all day at work) until I finally blow out the zipper in the back, but I'm predominantly touring or commuting, not getting a toe down in the twisties. These are really focused on touring, not racing. At the same time though, they offer really good ankle support, unlike most touring boots.

I've never scraped the toes on these, but I'm not particularly aggressive.

If you tend to scrape your toes in the corners, these likely aren't the boots for you.
