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 .

I like this boot much more than I thought I would
I have had the Torque RS Out boots for a month and have ridden a couple hundred miles with them. I was accustomed to riding in standard leather boots and did not know what to expect from more technical boots.
When you first put the boots on, they have a slight ski-boot feel to them, but after a few rides, I really started to enjoy them. The construction of the boots is obviously of high quality, in look, feel and functionality.
The sole of the boots grips the road exceptionally well. When I place my foot down I have a high degree of confidence that my bike, a K1600GT, which is heavy, is not going to cause my foot to slip.
The first few times the boots were slightly difficult to put on, but after a few rides, that slight problem largely went away. The boots are rear-entry, which helps, but they are technical boots and you need to use pressure to get them off and on. The zipper up the back of the boots works well and makes getting them off and on easier.
My calves are average sized and I have plenty of room. I did not need to use the adjustment.
There is a string-pull adjustment over the arch of the foot that allows you to adjust the uppers of the boots and make the fit snug. This is a very useful feature. I have not needed to loosen this adjustment each time I put the boots on or take them off, either.
The thing that surprised me most about the boots is how comfortable they are when ridding. The fit is wonderful. I can feel the gear shifter nicely as well. The ankle is rigid laterally but quite flexible otherwise.
I bike in Northern California near the coast so the weather is always a little on the chilly side. I suspect the boots might be a little warm in the summertime in some place.

Very Sturdy and Protective Boots
I've just started riding a motorcycle but due to the high risk I wanted to make sure I bought the best protection I could afford. These boots are one notch below the top of the line Dainese boots but are excellent and I was able to soon test our their protection.
Overall Review -
The quality of the boots is very high and everything looks and feels strong. The single zip system for entering and exiting the boot is a big time saver. The boot also lets you expand the calf portion if your calfs are too large or you need more space to stuff your pants into the boot. I wear a size 9 US shoe size and the 43 cm size fit perfectly snug. Also note that these boots out of the box new are a little stiff at first but within an hour of riding and walking in them they've broken in nicely and are very comfortable to walk and wear. The shoes also look nice and stylish ( I got the white ones ) .
My Personal Story -
After receiving all my gear and getting my license I wanted to start practicing my motorcycle safety foundation techniques to get comfortable with my bike. But I was eager, and I wanted to just sit on the bike and practice moving it with the clutch. A simple and safe task, that shouldn't be risky or need to put on all the gear I just bought right? Well gear only works if you have it on, and I'm glad I decided to make the correct call and fully suit up. As I backed out of the garage I let the bike lean too far to the right and the bike and I fell to the side. The bike's metal frame landed on top of my right foot. The bike was being held up off the ground by my foot alone and was keeping the tank/exhaust from touching the ground. Yet, my foot was fine. I didn't even notice the weight of the bike on my foot at all. This is where buying good gear and making sure to wear it comes into play. The Dainese boots have a very strong sole/rim on the bottom of the boot with softer supports toward the ankle and calf. I thought that this may not be very protective at all, but when I saw how the boot could support a 420lb bike on it's sole I was impressed. Not only that, but Dainese uses a single zipper design which came in handy. I could have sat there on the ground all day with no effect to my foot but I simply had to unzip ONE zipper from the back and my foot slipped right out. My friend came by and we examined the damage to both the bike and boot. No damage to either of them! Boot looked brand new. I am almost positive had I not been wearing these boots I'd have a broken foot right now. My foot would have been damaged enough for at least a cast or serve medical bills. Instead I just walked away.
I highly recommend these boots, or similar boots of equal quality and protection. Gear that doesn't protect you isn't worth what you paid for it.
