Dainese Torque RS Out Boots
Saved me in a crash, bought them again
Got biffed off my larger bike by a cager on a freeway onramp while wearing my first pair of these, which were 11 months old at the time (about 5900 miles), and still looked like new.
Hit the pavement HARD and slid 30M face-down. The ankle protection frame saved my right ankle from possible serious injury (did I mention I hit the ground HARD).
Sliders and protection did their job perfectly and this pair, while well scuffed and thrashed, is still functional.
Bought an identical replacement pair from ZLA because of this experience. (Did the same with my Dainese Full Metal RS gloves as well.)
Nothing but praise for ZLA service (24 hours to order delivery!) and Dainese quality.
I normally wear a 13 shoe but for whatever reason, the 46 fits me perfectly (by way of comparison I need 47 in other Italian brand boots). Much less bulk than many of the other boots I own, which promotes movement and correct position on the rear sets on my supersport.

As advertised, this boot is nice and cool in hot weather. They seems to run true to size, although others found them small. I wear a 44 to a 44.5 in most other shoes and the 44 fit perfectly. They WERE, however, VERY difficult to get on or off the first few times because of the tight heel pocket....I almost sent them back for a 45. I'm glad I didn't, because after just three wearings with a thin sock they broke in and I can now wear a normal sock. Once I got them on they were immediately comfortable, heel and all. You do have to have something to sit on to get them on or off because of the tight heel pocket. I was surprised to find them warm enough down to about 50 degrees but still comfortable at 90.
I have Sidi Adventure Rains too, and these boots will now take over at any temps above 50. I bought the Spidi X-covers to go with them for rain, but we don't get much of that here so those will rarely get used. Once again, Revzilla's product knowledge and quick service shined!

Fantastic boot. Exactly what I was looking for after a lengthy search.
Looks and fits great. Excellent protection overall. Very comfortable.

The ONLY boots you'll ever need.
I was afraid at first on purchasing these Dainese Torque RS Out Boots. The youtube videos sure helped and did the trick on convincing me. Having this to be my first boots ever as a beginner rider, it was FANTASTIC! They don't even feel like boots half the time! I can run and walk around in these with no problem. They are very durable and stylish. When I first worn it, I was afraid of it not fitting right or that I won't get comfortable or that boots wasn't for me. I was wrong, Dainese sure did show quality and best bang for the buck. If I were to get another set of boots, I'd probably get these in WHITE! Looking forward to purchasing more Dainese!

Excellent protection that oozes style
Dumped a BMW F800GS with hard cases packed to the gills on this boot during a left low side skid out while doing some aggressive riding on dirt roads filled with silt. The boot took the impact so well, I was not hurt even slightly. Got right back on and was on my way. The single zip allows you to get in and out of these boots about as fast as a fireman suiting up. And of course, like all Dainese apparel the boots stop traffic. People who don't eve ride want to know who makes them. Love these boots.

Dainese Torque RS Out Boots
I wear a size 12 and got these in Euro 47. They fit great. They are easy to put on and take off unlike my last pair of Puma's. Very comfortable and have the protection I was looking for. And, they look good. What more could you ask for?

I originally ordered the Sidi Vertigos but after receiving them and finding out they has no ankle. lateral motion protection I didn't want to risk a broken ankle. I have to admit that the Style of the Sidis were a little better but there seemed to much going on the outside.
I was looking at getting the SIDI ST's.
These boots were recommended by Revzillia staff when I was setting up my return. At first I didn't like the look but I was willing to get over that for extra the ankle protection. I was ordering to Canada and already had to pay the shipping cost to return the Sidis so I went on the safe side and ordered the 45's which is actually 45.5 so 11.5 (US). I am a 10.5 and the boots feel a little larger but with the inside booties will tighten enough that you still have control to use shiftier/break. Look at the Dainese site for better sizing. If you are a 10.5-11 you can get away with a 44.
I also can really appreciate the simplicity of the boot vs something like the SIDISbut not compensating on safety. I was concerned that there was no Achilles calf protection on these vs the SIDI ST which has a TMP plate on the outside.
What the review video doesn't show well is the inside bootie has a plate that is covered once the back is zipped up.
Also the rear entry is really nice. Very quick in and out. The top of the boot is a bit big and unlike the SIDI has the ability to expand you can't shrink. Even with my leathers tucked there is some space about a fingers worth. Once you tighten the inside bootie the boot is solid and I would not worry about it coming off in a crash situation.
There is one vent at the top of the shin. I have ridden them in about 35C or 95F and they provide enough airflow to keep them cool. Since in Canada we get 2 months of heat but then 3 months of cool I think if I got the Air it would of been to cold in those shoulder months.
I would recommend this boot and highly recommend you send the extra $ and get something with lateral ankle protection. Is a broken ankle & torn ligaments worth not spending an extra $100-200. Not for me.
I prefer the simplicity of these boot vs all the bells and whistles of the SIDI ST boots. No need to break in these boots and it took a few rides to get use to shifting with full boots but now no problems. They are super comfortable if you are doing some walking around and no squeaking.
Also shipping even to Canada was supper fast and would order from Revzilla again in a heartbeat.
If you are looking for solid boots either for the track, street or sport touring you could not go wrong with these boots.

I have had these boots about a month now and have put about 800 miles on them.
Appearance: These are beautiful boots, well made and just scream quality. Every detail is perfect and fit and finish is flawless.
Sizing: As others have noted Dainese boots are very narrow. I have a very narrow foot and they are a little tight for me. But they quickly broke in and now they are perfect.
Comfort: Absolutely the most comfortable boots I have every owned. I could wear them without socks if I wanted to, that is how good they are. No bumps, seams or pressure points anywhere.
Break-In: With all of the hard protection this boot offers I was sure it would take a while to break in but to my surprise that wasn’t the case. They broke in very fast and I even found it very easy to walk in them. Granted I don’t walk a lot just off the bike and maybe into the coffee or sandwich shop.
Protection: These boots have you covered. It’s hard to find any area of your foot that is not protected. I especially like the hardened area of the boot behind the rear zipper that protects the back of your ankle and lower leg. When I first saw that I thought it might be annoying and bug me but I was wrong. You don’t feel it and don’t even know it’s there.
This is my first piece of Dainese kit and boy am I impressed. I have owned 4 pair of Sidi boots in the past and have always been very happy with them but I think I have been won over. Come the fall I will getting a new leather jacket and I know it will be a Dainese jacket. Dainese kit is expensive but it is well worth it.
I have the luxury of working very close to Revzilla’s showroom so I can go there anytime I buy gear and try it on so fit is never a question. Hands down the best place to buy. Great staff with expert knowledge. I have a bad habit of buying things too big and the great folks there broke me of that. Revzilla is the only place I will buy .
