Dainese TRQ-Tour Gore-Tex Boots

A TeamZilla favorite, the Dainese TRQ-Tour boots are perhaps the best option for commuting, or sport touring. Collectively, we have put thousands of miles as well as a few crashes on the Dainese TRQ line and they never fail to impress. Recommended as a 3-season cold-weather boot that stretches nicely into the warmer months with Gore-Tex breathability, the TRQ-Tour Boots are the kind of protection that you will forget to take off!  The axial hinge provides excellent protection, while allowing for comfortable movement as you walk. In addition, the rear entry zipper allows for easy entry/exit to the boot. 

Features:

  • D-Axial jointed anti-ankle twist back system in TPU
  • Nylon toe TPU rear shinguards
  • TPU heelcounter
  • Nylon heel
  • Cowhide leather
  • D-Stone fabric
  • Elasticated bellows
  • Elasticated inserts
  • Internal regulation with VELCRO® brand closures Closing with zipper at the back
  • Waterproof / Breathable Gore-Tex membrane
  • High grip TPU inserts
  • Padded insert for gear shifter guard
  • Reflective inserts
  • Non-slip sole
  • Italian patent pending
  • Microelastic elasticated inserts(PCT Patent Pending)

Top of the line waterproof touring boots
Pardon the pun, but I am head over heels!

I had previously been using motorcycle boots that looked like sneakers and went just over the ankle. I wanted something with more ankle protection and with Gore-Tex and a toe box that wasn't too bulky. These boots definitely fit the bill!

Fit
I have quite narrow feet and felt these fit true to size. Usually wear a 10.5 or more frequently an 11, the 44 fit perfectly.

Comfort on bike
5/5. My feet stay bone dry even riding two hours through steady rain. Reasonably warm in 55 degree weather with full length motorcycle socks. Might look for socks that are just a bit thicker for colder weather. I have not had a chance to try out these boots in warmer weather yet, but they didn't feel too hot walking about my house. No difficulty with feeling the rear brake or with upshifting. Fits under the FJ 09 shifter without any adjustment.

Comfort off bike
4/5. Minimal heel slip, no significant squeaking. I do hear a bit of a jingle as the zipper pull strikes the zipper, makes me feel like I am walking with spurs. No pain or areas that rub.

Fit and Finish
5/5. High quality construction. Nifty built in reflectors on the sides. No sure how noticeable they are, but they do look cool.

Protection
5/5. The shin guard connects to two hinges, one on each side. This provides plenty of ankle flex for walking and using the motorcycle controls. However, it resists any lateral movement or twisting. Very clever design. Giving it 5/5 in this category not because it is as protective as a full MX boot (it obviously isn't), but rather the level of ankle protection offered compared with other boots in it's class. The fact it is comfortable while providing this protection fully merits 5 stars.

If you are looking for waterproof touring boots that are comfortable and have solid ankle protection, you should give these serious consideration.

Good snug fit on foot, but NO skin can come in contact with the lining.
IMPORTANT: This boot must be worn either with very long socks, a liner, or have your pants tucked into it.

The lining of the boot around the shin area is highly abrasive and has lead to rashes, and deep red marks around my shins and other parts of my leg above the ankle, and it can be quite painful and doesn't take a long time wearing the boot for this to occur.

Because of the obvious solutions stated above, I have to say though, that everything else about this boot is fantastic. The fit around my foot is fine. Temperature control is superb. It is a great price for a Gore-Tex labeled product. They look good. And I can walk in them for extended periods (provided I have tucked in my pants, am wearing a liner, or have long thick socks on).

Worth the money
Bottom line up front = worth. every. penny. I followed other reviews and went one size up (typically wear size 10-10.5 depending on the shoe/boot; purchased size 11 and it worked fine). I bought these right before a short duration but long distance (2000+ mile) road trip, which included riding in unexpected wet weather and temps below 40 degrees and up into the 80s at times. Result = feet remained warm, dry, and comfortable throughout the trip. Could not be happier with my purchase; highly recommend.

Note: The toe bed is slightly more narrow than your typical shoe, but even for my wide feet it was not something I noticed while riding or felt uncomfortable with after wearing the boot for more than 5 min. Don't let that dissuade you if you're interested in purchasing a great boot that will last for years.

Long term review of TRQ Tour boot
So I've had these boots for three seasons now, and have put over 25k miles on them. They are terrifically comfortable boots, and have always been on my feet, be it for a 5 minute, five hour, or five day rides. The boot after this many miles of riding in all sorts of adverse weather shows virtually no signs of wear(*). The Zipper for the rear entry is flawless, and the sole looks almost new, and the ankle protection hasn't become sloppy either, still snug. Worth mentioning that the shift pads don't show any signs of wear at all.
Where this boot has fallen short is where the upper leather meets the sole at the toe. I believe Dainese has made the rubber too "Low profile" which causes the leather upper to make contact with the ground during a normal walking gate(remember it's a touring boot) contact is also made when pulling away from a stop. This unfortunately has caused the leather to wear through on both toes, which makes them no longer waterproof. I've included pictures below..

I still think this boot has the best features/comfort/style for the money, and would purchase again, but i'd make certain modifications to them first...Maybe Dainese will beat me to it!

So how does anyone choose a boot? $100 $200 $300 $400 ???

I was in the RevZilla store and CJ says there's one boot to consider if you want ankle protection. Who doesn't?

He showed me these. Sold.

I have worn them for 1000 miles about. They do the job. They look good. They don't get in the way. The rear zipper is smart and quick. The boots just work. And they protect your ankle like no other. They call it Axial something. Check it out. Makes sense and for anyone who doesn't want a broken ankle in a simple crash they will pay for themselves easily. Easily.

Get these boots.

Great SPORT-touring boot
Have only had these about a month, but after about 1,000 miles I feel I know enough to review them preliminarily.

Sizing/fit: I'm a US 7.5 in non-motorcycle footwear; usually a Euro size 40 in m/c boots, like the 2 pairs of Rev'It! Fusions I've worn out. I have a narrow foot and high-arches. I tried a 40 in the TRQ Tour G-T but it was too small; the 41 fit very snug at first but has broken in to fit very well and feel fine, although time will tell if my heaviest winter socks will work with it (I ride all year, usually in hi-tech m/c socks except for sub-freezing temps when thicker wool socks -- you know, the "Smart" brand -- are used.) Be aware that this is a fairly narrow boot; duck-footed riders should look elsewhere.

Waterproofness/Breathability: I've had a few 3-5 hr. rides in moderate rain (no gully-washers yet) and my feet have remained bone-dry. The Gore-Tex membrane breathes well enough, though I'm not sure if it's any better than other similar, proprietary membranes I've had in other boots -- difficult to compare as my feet don't sweat much even in high humidity and I always wear wicking-fabric socks.

Construction/Quality Control: Top-notch with high level of detail, as you should demand at this price-point. I inspected these boots in detail and found only one niggle: an inside seam near top edge sewn slightly off-kilter, causing the liner to form a small raised crease. Though it looks like it could cause an annoying rub, I haven't felt it at all, so "no harm no foul." Note: I always wear tall socks.

Protection: Haven't "auditioned" this feature and no plans to do so. However, if appearances mean anything, these boots at least give me confidence that my feet, ankles and lower legs are well-protected.

General comments: I guess I'm doing it wrong, but as I age (52 now) I'm becoming more of a SPORT-touring rider and less of a sport-TOURING rider. These boots are great for my current needs: a waterproof boot that's quick & easy to don/doff ('cuz I also commute regularly) while being very protective, but not as stiff as a track-level boot. I've walked around some rally/meet/RTE sites without pain or difficulty, but I wouldn't recommend these boots for extended off-bike use (or take along some slip-on hikers). The boot is stiffer than more touring-oriented boots, which took me a while to get used to -- at first a missed a few shifts and generally felt like a klutz, but I've grown accustomed and all is OK now. The outsole is a harder compound and not as grippy (particularly when wet) than all my previous boots, which is improving a bit as miles add up; I expect the harder sole will last longer, though. The shifter-patch still looks brand new, BTW. After the first good exposure to rain, the boots began squeaking when walking around (either doesn't do it on the bike or I can't hear it); I'm guessing a little road crud must've gotten in the plastic ankle joints. I may try flushing the joints out with water or something safe for the plastic and leather.

After three years still a wonderful piece of gear
I originally ordered a size 42 since I wear a solid 10 (sometimes 10.5) American shoe. I could fit into the boots but I quickly realized I couldn't commit to that size. The 44 has fit perfectly for three years. The Revzilla exchange could not have gone easier and, for me, has set a new bar in customer service.
I do local light sport riding on a Fireblade and I've done two cross country tours in these boots (FJR1300 and R1200RT). They remain remarkably comfortable and absolutely waterproof (unlike my previous 'waterproof' Diadoras). I am a huge believer in Goretex. Even in 105F riding these boots were never a source of heat discomfort.
I saw a mention of perhaps some discomfort at the top of the front shin area and that has made me always pull my socks up to pad that area. It has never been a source of discomfort even on multiple consecutive 800 mile days in high heat.
You will not go wrong with this boot or with Revzilla.

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.

Seriously?
I agree with the other reviews that a lack of protection for the vinyl on the end of the toe and the fact that the sole doesnt even extend to the end of the toe is going to kill this boot. One walk across a gravel parking lot and the underside of the toe is nicked up in several spot. One even goes all the way through the vinyl. (see pic of how much of the underside of the toe is exposed) If a boot cant handle a walk across a gravel parking lot then there is no way it will handle the daily abuse I will put it through. Granted, the nicks are small and the boot isnt shredded... but I only walked to and from a bathroom once. If I get 3 nicks each time... it wont take long. On top of that.. why is the vinyl on the toe so thin? A thicker material would absorb the cuts. Poor design imo.

They are cool looking boots, very comfortable, extremely light. They fit like ecco hiking boots imo. I wear a 44.5 in ecco and the 44 dainese fit me fine. A little tight in the heel but they broke in after a bit of walking around.

I tried the Torque RS out at the same time in a 45 and found them to be too big. I wish the TRQ boot had a similar internal configuration as the Torque RS out. It has easier rear entry, and internal lace to snug it up, and hard plastic on the achilles. The torque RS out was not comfortable to walk around in compared to the TRQ.

I want to like these boots but that toe issue is ridiculous for a high end boot. The torque RS had protection for the toe! Id say spend the money on something else unless you dont plan to do anything but ride in these... like walk or kneel. Since I cant return them, I plan to take them to a shoe company and see if they can fit in some protection for the underside of the toe. Maybe a piece of black duct tape.

I expected more from these boots.

I agree with "way small" comment
I ordered size 46, but these are pixie boots. To get into these boots you would have to be able to go on point like a ballerina, and flex your foot then to get into the rigid L shape. I managed to get them on wearing the thinnest socks I have, then wrestled them off & returned them. I agree with other reviewers, these are so small that I checked the label. TRQ are beautify made pixie boots.

I bought these the replace my Tour Master WP Air boots. Although much more expensive, the increase in quality is quite noticeable. As with anything, they are waterproof to a point before water starts to come in through the seams. Other than that, no complaints aside from being sized a tad small for me. If I need replacements, I will be going 1/2 a size up.

For sport/commuting, I wanted the more agressive protection of the D-Axial jointed anti-ankle twist back system in TPU carried over from the TR-Course track boot, with the added benefit of Gore-Tex, should I get caught in the rain.

I commute in these, so I was looking for waterproof, protective, and reasonably comfortable. What really caught my eye was the sole, advertised as being particularly sticky on the pavement. My feet have stayed dry and reasonably comfortable. Thankfully I can't speak to protection. Two complaints: the hard parts sqeak (I've lubed them with short-term effects), and my feet seem to slip as much on wet pavement as they ever did in other boots. I'd give them 3/5.

I usually wear a shoe size of 9.5 US. I noticed in the sizing chart skips from 9 to 10 what size would be recommended for these boots?
A shopper on Feb 18, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I would err on the larger side and go with the 10. These boots have very stiff toe boxes and they will probably never break-in/expand. Plus they seem to run a tad small. I have US 11.5 TRQ-Tour, and most shoes that size would probably be a little too big for me, but the boots are a snug fit.
I've now settled between this boot and the Alpinestar grand tarino gortex for my sport touring / street corner carving. Multiuse needs. I'm really liking the light armor on these. But I'm curious how bad they squeek? I've never owned a multi plastic hinge skate that didn't squeek. So wondering about these... When new and after they have some use? Because I will wear out whatever I buy?

BEST ANSWER: No squeaking at all. Probably the best all around boot I've ever had. Will buy again before they get discontinued.
I have tree-trunk calves...
A shopper on Jan 3, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The inner booty opens as much as any other race boot with an inner booty. With that said, I have smaller calves and they are almost perfect fitting on my leg (less than half an inch of space from my calf to the edge of the booty, see photo). Hope that helps!
Are these "mid shin" boots? What is their height in inches?
A shopper on Jul 13, 2011
BEST ANSWER: I am 5'11" . The dianese is 12" tall. It comes to aboutjust above mid-shin on me. Nice boot! Not sure I wanted spend so much $$$. Glad I did!
Doing a long tour of Europe. I'm confident this boot would be great for riding, but what about off bike comfort? For instance, walking the Louvre? or Vatican?
Ken N on Feb 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Ken - They are a great boot on the bike. Good protection, comfortable (for me), and easy on and off.
I've worn them for most of a day with no problems. But, haven't spent all day walking in them. Personally I think you want shoes for walking. I've toured Italy and it can be hilly and the cobbles do get slippery. But hey, they sell shoes in Europe!
Good luck and have a great time!

I am looking for a waterproof breathable boot that protects my foot in case of a low side and at the same time can be worn under a pair of jean.

Should I got with these (Dainese TRQ-Tour Gore-Tex) or Dainese TR-Course Out D-WP Boots ? Or should I look elsewhere?

I plan to use them in my daily commute to and fro work and also for touring distances not more than 300-400 miles at a time.
I ride a Kawasaki Z800 2015 in rain and temperature range of 50 to 100 degs throughout the year. Also, I would want to walk in them in pavement/tarmac/building but not more than a mile a day.

BEST ANSWER: You cannot go wrong with the TRQ for what you describe. I use the boot for my commute and for, yes, touring every chance I get. Takes some breaking in so you do not sound like a Star Wars storm trooper, but I occasionally walk any where from 3/4 to a mile in them with no problem. I worry more about wearing the sole out than anything else. Granted, not quite as much protection in event of going down as the TR-Course, but still super protection beyond most other boots, can be worn under street clothes (jeans, etc.) an look similar to one of the newer jazzed up sneakers.
Just wanting to get a better idea on sizing, especially as wanting to order from Australia, making returns a bit harder. I read several reviewers indicTing these boots run tight. I am a 43 in Dianese Nighthawks, and many of my other non ridin shoes are 43. Will a 43 in these be best or should I go to 44's of they run tight?
A shopper on Jan 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am right in between a 41 and 42 for Dainese boots. When I wear 42, I lose some feeling when shifting because the shifter panel is not quite in the right place on my foot, and also when I'm walking it's not snug enough so my toes are getting dragged around and pinched.

When I wear 41, it feels better while riding but while walking a bit too snug, so what I did is remove the inner sole protector, and the fit is perfect both riding and walking. The boot is so comfortable with incredible longevity inside and out that you don't really need the sole protector.
Zipper-related question. Does anyone have a technique for keeping the rear zippers from unzipping? On several rides the zipper slides down 1/3 from the top. If this has happened to you, has anyone found a way to prevent that? I tried using the Velcro to make it a little tighter. Will try looser. But anyone else's prior experience would be welcome. Thank you.
A shopper on Jan 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Sorry to say don't have an answer but will support your experience. And thanks. I thought I had been forgetting to zip now and then! I ride often and about a 1/3 of the time get that slippage. I will make an effort to make sure I am zipping all the way to the top and being sure the 'pull tab' is in the down position. Overall I love the boots. I have about 2 years and 20K miles on them. I ride about three in every five days.
what about hot weather?
Vidking on May 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have worn these on sunny days above 90 F for extended periods of time and they're all right. They're not the best boots for the heat, but I don't notice them as much as my perforated leather jacket or gloves. I would definitely describe these as four season boots.
Do these boots have the speed lacing system like the torque out boot?
Jonathan H on Feb 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There boots have the full length, down-to counter rear zipper, with the velcro adjustable calf bellows and Gore-tex gaiter (see the Revzilla video), I have relatively narrow calves, so adjust tight in, There is no lacing system; the boots run Dainese-narrow (which I like). I am a size 12 US, but ended up with a EU 47 to accommodate various levels of sock(s) by season/weather. Good, comfortable boot. Wear with Drake Air pants in summer, and with overprints for inclement weather commutes.
