Dainese TRQ-Tour Gore-Tex Boots
Exactly what I was looking for
Again, you´re buying high quality products from Dainese, which for me doesn´t get any better. Absolutely comfortable boots, not only for riding but also for walking once you´re off the bike. Great protection and safety features. Everything you see on the video you get.

Worth the Money
I bought these boots this summer. At first I had a bit of buyers remorse because of the price of them. However, they are worth every single penny. I have never had any problem with comfort and the sizing is pretty self explanatory. I think it might have taken me one return to get the sizing right but no biggie with the awesome return policy here. I have used them for all my riding (summer, fall, winter, and will be used for spring as well) with no problem. Stay cool enough in warm weather and definitely warm enough for the winter.
The reason I'm writing this review is because the other day I had to lay down my V-Strom DL1000 for the first time. Sad day but I was going pretty slowly. I lost a turn signal and that is all. Anyways, during the sequence the bike came down pretty much on my boot on the side of it. Probably would have busted my ankle with out good boots. I didn't feel anything besides a bit of soreness for a few hours.
BUY THESE! YOU WON'T BE SORRY!!!!!

No wonder it's a ZLA winner!
I bought these boots as I really wanted a pair with Goretex to extend my winter and spring riding here in the PNW. I have Sidi's and was looking into their options. I stumbled upon these on the Gear Guide (great work REVZILLA) and had them in the ol' wish list for a bit. Noticed they were on sale and pulled the trigger during Black Friday.
The boots arrived promptly as all things do when working with REVZILLA. My feet are narrow and i believe that these boots are traditional Italian fit. They feel snug and secure just like a firm handshake. The foot is almost cradled inside the boot.
Toe box is pointed and the gear shifter bends right where my toes start. While walking this puts a small amount of pressure on the top of my feet but is not even noticeable on the bike.
The sole is well made and moves freely on my rubberized foot pegs. Even better than my Sidi's. I also like that the heel has a ramped section to it keeping it from getting stuck during certain shifts when riding.
My only 2 gripes would be the same as others that have posted about the slightly abrasive fabric on the back portion of the top of the boot. It's only slightly annoying but with the right height socks or pants tucked into the boots it becomes a non issue. A toe slider would be a nice addition as well or some reinforcement.
The quality of this boot will not disappoint anyone spending this amount of money. I would go as far to say that this should be closer to a $375.00 priced model if you compare it with others.
Overall this is a great boot for street and commuter use. I could even see it being used for light duty ADV (think hipster Scrambler here) or a track day or 2 for a newbie.

Very pleased with this purchase
I've been riding since I was a kid and these Dianese boots are by far the most advanced, protective, and expensive boots I've ever purchased. And they're worth it. The craftsmanship, design and attention to detail is top notch, and after wearing them for a few weeks I couldn't be happier. Definitely a significant upgrade from other boots I've been wearing.
I wear a US size 10 dress shoe and the Dianese 44's fit me just right. Snugger than other boots, but not too tight even with my thickest socks. Very comfortable on a 3 hour ride yesterday.

High protection, light weight, and breathable. Very small and tight and I like narrow shoes but these were one size to small. They really are one of the best boots on the market if you are looking for premium foot protection with all the other perks.

I bought this boot based on the ZLA tag and they were right! The boot is stylish and very comfortable considering the high level of protection it offers. Highly recommended.

I like where you can adjust the calf width.
It is comfortable and I do not feel any airflow coming in.
I rode it in a low 30F temp with just ankle high socks and did not get cold.. I commute to work 20 to 30 mins on a highway.
this is my first boot and its hard to shift in the beginning but it gets better once the material stretches a lil bit.
I always check the sole of any shoes if they are slippery and this one really stick to the ground.
