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.

Dainese TRQ-Tour Gore-Tex Boots 4.5 5 90 90
Great commuter boot. Dainese TRQ-Tour Gore-Tex Boots have been the best purchase I've ever made. They fit better than some sneakers and shoes I have bought. I wear them from the height of summer to the end of season in New England and they are comfortable, waterproof and breathe nicely. You need to wear better, warmer socks in colder weather, but definitely worth every penny I spent. I've put 3000+ miles on these boots - both commuting and touring - and they still look and fit as good as new. The Skywalk soles make it easy to walk in when you stop. I've even worn them all day at the office accidentally and had no problems with movement or comfort. As noted, they run a little narrower than many American manufacturers, but once you find the right size they fit like a glove. If you're a commuter or touring rider, these will make the trip comfortable. Rate these a buy. April 14, 2014
Perfect For Specific Uses/Users This boot is not for those with square feet. The toe is very pointy so if your foot isn't a little pointy as well your end toes will constantly be digging into your middle ones. If you have narrow feet then this is the boot for you. . . that is if you're also looking for a more covert race boot. A lot of race boots with this level of protection are flashy, but this is something you could take to work without getting a second glance. This is why I bought this boot and also why I gave it a high rating, if you're looking for a race boot for the track or weekend riding go with something else. The waterproof is also a reason I bought this, but it also means awful ventilation - it could be much much worse w/o the Gore-tex, but it's still bad. I almost want to give it a 3-star in regards for the "bang-for-the-buck" because you would really expect a boot this expensive to have toe sliders or at least an option, but once again, this boot seems to be purposefully designed to be the most covert yet protective race boot you will find. You're also paying because it's Dainese and you know that they're going to have quality leather/protective features and this boot does that. The leather is thick and flexible at the top-ankle of your foot and still/durable at all the crash prone areas. The shin protection is fantastic and the toe, bottom, and heel are very hard. I rated this 4 stars because if you're looking for a boot for someone with narrow feet, who needs quality protection from both asphalt at 100+ mph and rainy weather, but is willing to pay extra for a bit of extra breath-ability and all of this being wrapped up into a covert package than this is the boot for you. Otherwise don't buy this. I still ended up deducting a star because for the price I would expect at least an option to put on some toe sliders, but it's a pretty minor thing from a racing perspective. April 10, 2014
I love these boots I'll start with the only "bad" thing. Took two tries to get the right size. I take a US 9.5 and have normal width. Ordered the size equivalent for a 10 as I had heard Dainese boots run narrow. I got them on but had to get someone to help me pull them off. Returned to exchange for the equivalent of a US 11. By the way, the return process was excellent and quick. The fit is now okay length-wise, still a tad snug on width but not uncomfortable at all. As to the rest, all I can say is these boots are great. Sturdy but not too stiff. I was able to walk around easily right out of the box although as expected the new soles are still stiff and need to break in a bit. Rest of boot was as if I had worn them in for months. Very comfortable. Great looking with perforated leather, cool trim, etc. Nice safety features. Quality construction and materials. Have done a couple several-hour rides, light rain on one. Boot breathes very well. No clammy feeling. Brushed off light rain as if it never happened. One of the rides was in the upper 30s and my feet stayed comfortable wearing just lightweight sport socks. One of the better buys of cycle gear I have made. March 17, 2014
Great 3-season boot. I have worn these for a whole year now in all 4 seasons, wet and dry, cold and hot. They breath well enough that a full-day ride in the 90's won't make you sweat too much. They are great in the rain too. As for cold/damp weather I have ridden in these for trips up to 1 hour in temps down to the upper 20's and that is all I can do. In the mid-30's you can ride in them all day. The only thing stopping me from riding down into the teens is the flat narrow toe box. I just cannot wear thicker socks (I wear hiking socks which are thick enough already) and if I try wearing something thicker the sock gets very compressed in the toe box which makes the thermal performance go down and the comfort level of the boot go down too. So I would say if you ride from early spring to late fall and not in temps lower than mid-30's or over 95 degrees these boots will serve you well in wet or dry weather. Just be aware the foot is narrow and the toe box is flat so if you have chubby feet or high arches then forget about these. But I love my pair after one year and several thousand miles. March 8, 2014
I agree with "way small" comment I ordered size 46, but these are pixie boots. To get into these boots you would have to be able to go on point like a ballerina, and flex your foot then to get into the rigid L shape. I managed to get them on wearing the thinnest socks I have, then wrestled them off & returned them. I agree with other reviewers, these are so small that I checked the label. TRQ are beautify made pixie boots. March 1, 2014
Way small I wear 10 1/2 medium shoes. Always have. Sizing chart says size 44 = US size 11. The boot was a little narrow and the heel snapped onto my foot so tightly I could not remove the boot. Had to get my GF to help and it took her about 5 minutes to painfully pry it off. Perhaps they were mislabeled? March 1, 2014
Best Value This boot was the previous Dainese race boot design, with added Gore Tex, just a HUGE value boot IMO. More comfortable than I expected, and the Achilles zip entry is a real nice plus. When I went to the Revzilla showroom to try on several different pairs, I would not have predicted that I would have chosen this out of the box comfortable boot, and I am very, very picky. I'll buy a backup pair when they get discontinued. February 20, 2014
Tight in the toe box. Im a size 13 and they fit ok. The toe box is a little tight. Nothing too bad but restricts what you can wear in cold weather. Having said that, we are all different and I wouldn't let this put you you off if they fit you. Easy to get on and off and comfortable straight out of the box. No leaks in some heavy rain and easy to clean due to the lack of buckles. Despite other comments the one issue I have had is the sole and lack of grip. Nearly dropped the bike once due to my left foot slipping and consistently inducing a lack of confidence in my foot plant. In Summary: I am dropping them down on my rating due to small toe box that doesn't allow extra socks. And the poor sole that reduces foot plant grip. February 9, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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
P A: 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

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

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...

schoolmaster: I was in the same situation so I looked at the conversion chart for 10 and it recommended size 43. No way-way too small and heel cup too narrow. Exchanged for 44 and it was a perfect fit for me. Dec 17, 2012

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

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

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. Thank you. Jan 19, 2014

brian s: Sorry to say don't have an answer but will support your experience. And thanks. I thought I had been forgetting to zip now and then! 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. Overall I love the boots. I have about 2 years and 20K miles on them. I ride about three in every five days. Jan 19, 2014

Douglas H: I haven't had the happen to me with the TRQs or any other boot. If it's just one zipper, I'd suspect a faulty zipper and would contact Revzilla's CS about it. Perhaps someone else has a suggestion of both zippers are affected. Jan 20, 2014

Daniel N: I've ride for several hours and have not have the issue on this model. However, I do have this issue on my track boots. From what others have said, maybe some boots come with a defective zipper and now I'm stuck with it. Mar 29, 2014

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.

I love the boat. Good luck.

A shopper asked: I'm very interested this boot(TRQ-Tour). The Dianese web site show sizes US13.5 and US-14. I wear a US 13 in all my shoes/boots. I have a pair BMW goretex touring boots in size 47 that are too tight in the toes. Great boot but they become uncomfortable after a while.

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.

  • Chestwidth: Measure from under/top of armpit cross 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.
