I love these shoes
These shoes look fantastic! That's my favorite part about them, they're exactly my style and I love that I can wear them around town and feel out of place. Speaking of walking around town, I've done that in these, they're super comfortable! I'm not saying they're going to be as comfortable as your nikes but for protective motorcycle shoes they're awesome. Size is good too, I wear a 11.5 in Nike athletic shoes and same for these. Now I am pretty skinny and have probably pretty narrow feet so keep that in mind. The toes are a little tight too by the way. My only complaint is the laces. A couple times I've gotten them cought on the pegs, I wish there was a more elegant solution than tucking them into the front laces but it's not a big deal. I would totally buy these again, I actually wish dianese made normal shoes that looked like these, I would wear them all the time.

Best riding shoes I've ever bought
Absolutely amazing. I wear these all the time. I wear them to work with dress pants. I wear them on the weekend with jeans. They are flexible enough to wear all day (my last boot had an extremely rigid sole which was difficult to walk in). The soles stay grippy when wet (my last boots where like ice skates when they were wet). They look great. They fit as expected per the fit guide. I got stuck in a storm. After 20 minutes in a downpour, my socks are dry and the shoes still look new. When these wear out, I hope they still sell these because I want these shoes again. Can't recommend them enough.

One of the best feeling shoes I've ever owned
Wanted a lightweight and breathable shoe for hot day riding and found one of the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned! These are like slippers with protection. I can't get over how comfy they are both on the bike and off walking around. Great style with the suede. I visited the Philly store just to check things out and ended up with these shoes, no regrets! Thanks for the outstanding customer service at the Philly store! You guys are top of the game!

Great riding shoes!
The shoes really seem to fit the bill between the All-Star type riding shoes that really offer very little protection and the hard boot like shoes. They are comfortable both on and off the bike. I have a very narrow foot and even these were tight on me. I typically wear a size 11 to 11.5 and I ordered a size 11. They are snug but comfortable. I'd go up one size.

Comfortable with some subtlety
Fit may be slightly narrow but overall very comfortable when riding and quick errands. Would not recommend for all day wear off-bike. Design is obviously different than a normal shoe but not as bad as many other riding shoes. Able to pass as a normal shoe with some riding jeans for at least a moment.

Awesome casual riding shoes
Leaving aside the italian quality, craftmanship and sheer beautiful suede design, these shoes are great moto shoes for casual, around the city driving.

Ended up with both colors (the side logo is a bit different on the D1 than the picture here, which is the previous model.. the new ones are a bit more streamlined) as my go-to-and-use-at-the-office shoes.

Grippy sole, narrow but not that much, all day comfort, true to euro size.

Great alternative to a full-on riding boot
I love how these look and very high quality. The logo on the side differs a little from the image shown but I think I like what I received more. Like many looking at these, I wanted riding shoe that I'd feel comfortable wearing on and off the bike, at work or wherever. I normally wear size 11 shoes and these fit similarly (I chose Euro size 44 as per the size chart). I've been wearing these to work nearly every day since purchase whether I rode that day or not. Feels like a normal shoe which is absolutely great. I hope I never have to review the protection factor, but these will be immensely better than the Puma's I normally wear. Definitely would recommend to other riders.

VERY COMFORTABLE
Very comfortable, while giving good stability and safety. Feet stay fresh, even during high summer in Brazil. Good overall adjustment to the feet. Very good sole. I am happy to use it in general riding situations.

Quality and style
Scuro65 on Nov 22, 2016
The style appealed to me and they were very comfortable for riding shoes. Ankle protection was minimal so I returned them in favor of the TCX X-Move.

Hoping they're a good compromise between my full race boot and sneakers. I need something that offers a little protection while still being able to wear all-day at work.

what's the difference between the vera cruz d1 and the vera cruz?
David P on Feb 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My D1's just showed up today and they look different than the picture. I'm thinking since the D1 is new for 2016 (according to this site's description) they haven't updated the pic yet. It looks the same for the most part, but the demon is definitely different than the picture. The demon looks like it is on the 'Merida D1'. The ones I got look like a high top version of the Merida D1.
How do these hold up to heat? I ride a BMW S1000RR which has literally melted regular shoes/boots I've worn on hot days.
Kasey T on Sep 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Don't know.
Bought them according to size chart,but we're to small,and never wore them
I know the original Vera Cruzes also came in a grey color. Any idea Revzilla if these new ones will eventually be available in anthracite?
Daniel E on Apr 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Do not know. I bought mine in black.
