Dainese Torque Pro Out Boots
Best boots I have ever had
I have narrow feet 8.5 us and the 41 fit me perfect!
Beware initially the are hard to put on giving you the idea that the are small. I was surprised that when I was wearing them the felt snug but comfortable. After a couple of days they were easy to put on and super comfortable. Excellent boots for city riding. Fit very easy underneath your jeans or my Drake air pants. Highly reccommend them. If you have wide feet maybe not for you.

Order at least 1 size larger
Once you get the right size, the boot feels great. I wear a 43 in Sidi boots and had to get a 44 in these and they are still alittle snug, should be just right after they stretch a bit

This is my second pair of riding boots and it does not dissappoint. My first pair were sidi cobra, they were ok but these are so much better in everyway.

Stylish, Protective, and Comfortable
These boots are terrific! They are stylish, protective, and comfortable. I had broken my left ankle in a motorcycle crash recently, so I wanted more protective street boots, and I particularly like the ankle protection these boots provide. I also like the quick lace inner boot, which provides a snugger fit. They are very comfortable, require little break-in, and are very easy to put on and take off. They are also light, and they fit under most motorcycle pants, but you can also tuck tight-fitting pants inside the boots. I've got skinny calfs, so I would have liked the ability to more tightly close the upper section.

These boots fit great and look spectacular. If you want increased protection and a fantastic boot the Torque Pro Out is what you are looking for. There will be a short break in period but not too long.

Worth the price for the comfort.
I've had them about a week. They came in 2 days before I was take a weekend trip on my duc.
So I had about 2 hours of riding time, and wearing them around the house for 1 day, before taking them for 16+ hours of riding over 3 days. Didn't get a blister, or even much in the way of hot spots. I was very impressed with the fit and comfort.
These are the first dedicated motorcycle boots I've ever bought since I had never found any that weren't horribly uncomfortable. The inner lining and the way it laces are absolutely key. They make the same boot with traditional laces for a hundred bucks less - but those hundred bucks were very very worth it on my last trip.
While they are supposed to be over boots, they tuck under all pairs of jeans I have, and I'm pretty skinny - so if you want good protection for your feet, but still riding casual (or with kevlar jeans) they should fit under your pants.They're not as storm trooperish as some boots, but the stainless toe sliders kind of scream I'm wearing motorcycle boots.

All the dainese products have fantastic style. That's really what you're paying for. To me it was worth. This is my first pair of motorcycle boots... they certainly feel different than riding in my vans -- much safer to say the least.
I'm sure with some break in, they'll be much more comfortable. It's a little tough to fit my foot under the shifter, but with practice and break in I'm sure they'll be great.

This is my first pair of a track boot, so maybe I don't know what I'm talking about, but here is my impression.
The good: Quality is great. Although mine arrived with scuffs on them, I think that is a "previously tried on" issue. Super comfy - my feet are really wide and don't fit well, but it was still comfortable to wear and walk around in for a bit. Looks great, I think they are wearable to the office without screaming "morphin' time!" Zip/lacing system is cool, easy to put on/take off. Heel cup feels very substantial.
The bad: Shin protector is flimsy. I can bend it easily with one hand. Ankle protection system seems good for impact only. Very little crush protection - again, I can squeeze the red circle joints and make them almost meet on the inside of the boot. Extension/abduction protection of the ankle is almost nonexistent. Boot is soft in the back, so even if the guard stops moving, your ankle can keep extending because your calf is pulling out the back. In the front, the guard is soft. With the boot off, I can get the toe to meet the shin by bending it with my hands. I also see alot of extra glue in alot of the seams.
Overall, I think these boots are ok. 3/5 as a track boot brought down to 2/5 by the price. I am RMAing for a pair of Puma 1000s. Hopefully they will meet my expectations.
After RMAing for several other boots, I decided to stick with these as I really didn't like any other product available.
For the amount of stiffness/protection provided, these have broken in great. Although I still have some pressure points (my feet are freakin' weird) they are unexpectedly comfortable. I forget I am wearing a race boot when I am riding.
My initial thoughts on extension/abduction protection still hold true, however I think it's not that big of an issue. It would only be inadequate in the most extreme of circumstances (in which case your feet are probably the last thing the ER is going to worry about).
I still think crush protection leaves something to be desired, but after seeing other products in the same price range or higher, it seems to be the standard.
I want to reiterate how good these look. Some other products I have tried really look ridiculous. I can slip a pant leg easily over these even though they are meant to be an outer boot.
In summary - These are super comfortable and provide decent protection while looking good. One star off for price and protection being good only when compared to what else is out there.
