Dainese TRQ-Tour Gore-Tex Boots
Dianese makes really nice riding gear, so long as you don't mind paying for it. The boots are made well and do all that they were made to do. Your feet are very well protected, high and low. They aren't flashy like other street gear, and the gore-tex really helps. Better worn with pants tucked in for me, so everything is nice and tight, but you can go with pants out if you really want. Right in there for sport touring to full sport. Walking around in them is alright, although I haven't done much of that because they're for riding. Also, people say they run small, I didn't think so, I bought my true size and they fit nice and cozy tight, and have since broken in a little to fit like a glove. If you're serious about protection and have a few extra bucks this is a good choice

Awesome, comfortable riding boot
The Dainese TRQ-Tour Gore-Tex Boot turned out to be everything I hoped for... the on-line reviews and Revzilla's great video descriptions sold me on this boot, which provides a great balance of features at a reasonable cost. I was looking for a boot with good safety, excellent construction and quality, leather, Gortex in case it rains (even in Southern California!), and comfort. I achieved all of these and more. The fit was great, and the flexibility is just right....good stability while riding but easy enough to walk in and wear all day if necessary. The Gortex gives it more warmth, since there is less air flow into the boot, but this is not a problem as I rode for 3 hours in 80-90 degree weather recently and was very comfortable. I would definitely recommend this boot, and Revzilla as the best place to get this quickly and with low risk in case you have to make an exchange for a better size.

Very Happy with these.
These feel great for riding. I haven't had to use the safety features, but they're comfortable enough to walk around in.

Love this boot!
I went to the Philly showroom and the awesome staff helped me out right away. This boot was highly recommended. I'm glad I took their advice. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a durable, protective, and comfortable boot.

Bought the TRQ Tour Gore-Tex boots and have used them for a year. They're been perfect for every occasion (e.g. street and track).
They were comfortable right out of the box and have stayed comfortable over the last year.
They show very little wear and tear, they function as described, they're nice looking on and off the bike, and were a good value.

Good boot with minor issues
I picked up these boots because I was looking for a nice tour styled boot that offered decent protection that prevented the ankle from rolling in/out in a crash. The ankle protection on these is very nice and something you don't usually see excluding track/race boots. Styling is fairly subtle and not overtly flashy. Donning and doffing is made simple with the zipper up the back and adjustable velcro for the "cuff" size. Haven't been able to quantify how waterproof they are as I haven't rode through any major storms yet. They do break in quite a bit and become less stiff over time.
The issues I've discovered with them is they seem to run quite small. I normally wear a size 10 regular width. In these I had to get a 45 (US 11.5) which was still quite narrow, online shoppers take note. Also the shin guard WILL rub and leave marks on your leg if you're not wearing (tall) socks. Lastly, and a very minor issue, the toebox is quite flat/not very tall. It hasn't been an issue comfort wise, but I've found myself having to shift closer to the middle of the foot instead of the toes because they run so much flatter than other boots I'm used to and I've had issues with missed shifts.

Comfortable Waterproof Boots
Since purchasing these boots it seems it has rained every day possible. So i have over 500 miles on them in actual rain in a very short amount of time. I will say they are 100% waterproof.
These boots have great protection for a waterproof boot. Most are more touring oriented and offer no real ankle protection. This boot is more along the lines of the $300 range race boots such as the smx plus.
Now when it comes to sizing the size chart is off by a size and a half. According to the chart a 43 is a 10, I am a 10 and ordered a 44 knowing they run small. The 44 fit, but was as tight as it can be without it being uncomfortable. I am a 44 in alpinestars smx plus, and gaerne grw boots. I also wear 10.5 in nikes.

Have had this boot for a couple of weeks and it's a great boot.
When I first got it I was afraid that it was to snug and was going to send it back. I have had other Dainese boots in 43 and they fit great so I was hesitant to send them back and get a 44. I called and talked to one of the guys and they suggested that I could take out the insert in the boot and it would give me a little extra room. That did the trick and they fit great and were still comfortable even without the insert. I'm thinking once I break them in a bit more I may be able to put the insert back in.
Either way I am very pleased with them. They look great and aren't over the top.
