Dainese TRQ Race Out Boots (42 Only)
I've had these boots for about 9 months and after a bit of a long break-in process they are pretty comfortable. I have wider feet so they hurt after longer rides but it's my fault for sticking with a boot designed for a narrower foot. I'm a size US 8.5 (or 9 depending on manufacturer) and the 42 was a bit too big and the size 41 fit a bit snug but it stretched a bit and fits great now.
I purchased these because I like the brand and the bang-for-the-buck ratio was pretty good. It was the cheapest boot to offer any sort of protection for lateral ankle movement.
Since I got these on closeout I was limited in color options; I was aiming for the black perforated model but it was too big so I my only other option was the white, non-perforated model. It's grown on me a bit.
I wouldn't want to walk in these boots all day long but for short walks here and there they're comfortable enough. My feet definitely bake in warmer weather since there's no airflow to speak of in these boots. No fault of the boot since they're non-perforated.
The only issue I have with the boots, and this may be common with other manufacturers, but the dried glue on the boot was fairly obvious from the moment I un-boxed them. The boots have got quite a bit of wear on them now so it's not as noticeable but I had higher expectations for a Dainese product.

Race boots tend to be more restricting and technical and this boot is no different. I followed the sizing chart and chose a 42 sized pair. The fitment right out of the box was absolutely perfect, if not a little tight (will eventually break in a bit). The size chart is pretty accurate. Can't say about protection, really, but the boot is sturdy thick enough to really seem like it would take much abuse.

Comfortable & stylish
Glad I was able to come to the store in Philly to try these on; I would not have bought them otherwise. They are fine; I have only been to the track with them a few times but they are definitely more comfortable than my old Sidi track boots, whose stitching is coming undone & cannot be repaired.

great product great style
These boots are wonderful! I was looking for a boot with a hinge system which didn't break the bank. This fit the bill and the style is great. Everyone says these boots are too narrow but I think the are just fine. I wear a size 13 and ordered the 47. The fit is just right and not too narrow. I would rate the width as normal. The single zipper makes it a snap to put on. I ordered all black as I wanted something which didn't scream race boot. Looks great with jeans! These boot don't breathe at all. Kind of like wearing dress shoes. If you ride in high heat areas, you may want to consider a perforated boot instead. Otherwise, I highly recommend these boots!

Excellent Sport/track Boot!
I bought these boots as they are first of all really useful, protective and they look incredible! I did not know what to choose in terms of boot equipment level, but I have to say for the buck, you can't get more bang. They are super protective, the ankles is fixed, the toe-slider is great, the reinforcement on the toe section,, the material, the ankle protection, the adjustability is a great feature, and I consider it overall a great purchase. My girlfriend hates spoortbike and motorcycle gear look, yet she couldn't help but praise these boots for their looks! For reference, they do come a bit narrow, I am about a US size 10.5 and found the Dainese size 44 juist perfect, as I do have wide feet. I really recommend them.

Very comfortable, technical and provides a ton of safety
The trq out has to be one of the most comfortable boots with the greatest degree of protection you van get for the money. The heal is rock solid and the boot design is the best for preventing helical fractures without being difficulty to walk in. I have had them on with wool hiking socks in 80 degree weather and had no issues with my feet getting hot despite the relatively closed design. Great boot! One of my favourite pcs of gear!

The perfect boot for any cool weather riding
I bought these boots after I put on my dianese Torque out Air boots. I got these for any days that are cooler. They have been fantastic so far. They're comfortable and the rear entry is fast and easy for a quick gear up. the feel on the pegs is very responsive and not clumsy as all.
