Dainese Women's Svelta Gore-Tex Boots
Love these boots
So comfortable and sturdy. Not super attractive but I wear them under my pants so nobody knows but me!
I haven't worn them in the rain yet but they do seem pretty dang waterproof.
I normally wear a US size 7 or 7.5 and ordered these in a 38. They fit perfectly. Note that the tag inside the boot says that a 38 corresponds to US size 6. It does not! Do not listen to this Italian company's strange notions about American sizing.
The heel and calf all fit perfectly and there's adequate protection.
They're warm but I live in Southern California and my feet haven't overheated or anything.

Fit my foot but not my calf.
Fit my foot but not my calf.
I first ordered these Dainese Women's Svelta, size 38, but it would not fit my calf.
Then I ordered TCX Aura size 38, they fit my calf great, but the foot bed was to narrow.
Comparing the two
TCX Aura - had a stiffer sole, insole was micro thin, Calf area is very flexible.
Dainese had what I thought was nicer leather, and a way more comfortable foot bed. Calf area is pretty small.
If you could combine the bottom of Dainese with the Top of the TCX it would be the perfect boot.

Doesn't look like a man's riding boot!
Love this boot. I have a wide foot and this fits like a glove. Very comfortable and much more lady like in the style compared to my BMW riding boots.

Great looking boot
I love the look of this boot it's sleek and sexy! However, the lower half of the Rear elastic gusset doesn't allow any stretch in the boot because of the inner lining which is more rigid. I wear a size 6 and ordered the 36 which is narrow at the footbed and tight around my 14" calf. I'll probably go up a size and see if the fit is any better. I hope it works out because I really love the look of this boot and you can't beat Dainese quality!!

Dorky but awesome
So I really wanted something more stylish. Let's face it, this is a dorky looking boot for someone not riding a sports bike. But these boots are comfortable and warm, easy to take on and off, and keep me dry. I'm glad I didn't worry about finding a more street, cruiser looking boot and went with these.
I probably won't wear them once it is warmer, but for fall/winter and for wet weather, they will be my go to boots.

Another Great Dainese Product
I haven't had a chance to go on a long ride with my new Dainese boots, but I can tell from plenty of walking around the house that they are very comfortable. The front part of the boot is narrow, but I have a little extra wiggle room in the boot for toe movement or thick socks. Can't wait to get on the bike and really test them out!

I wear a size 6 in US women's size and the size 36 fit me perfectly.
I was looking for a boot with a little extra height (i'm 4'11 feet tall) and these give me at least an extra two inches in height. Plus they look badass. ;)
These were also recommended to me when I e-mailed revzilla asking about boots with a height boost and the lady said she rode these, since I had my eye on these anyways I snatched them up!
Putting them on the first time was a little snug and I had to work them in just a bit. The calves fit me perfectly but I have slim calves, would not recommend to those with calves on the bigger size. The Dainese Siren boot calf size were too big for mine so i would recommend those to women with bigger calves.
They are so comfortable. Takes a little work but after wearing them around the house for two days I can now tuck my jeans into them and zip them up.
I feel like my feet are super protected and it is not awkward at all to walk around in them. Like I said I wore them around the house for two days straight and I did not get any blisters or discomfort.
My dad recently had an accident where his bike slid out from under him and fell on his foot and he was wearing normal leather boots. The top part of his foot was basically crushed, he had to have so much hardware put in to reposition the bones, when they took it all out, it seriously looked like he had been smuggling an aisle full of screws from a hardware store in his foot. He is fine now and is getting back on his bike soon but not without better foot protection from now on.
Protect your feet!

Wife's boot and she loves them!
First Motorcycle boot other than Harley 3/4 boot. Feet stay warm in 55 degree weather and boot is not too hot in 90 degree weather .
Great style and comfortable enough to do some shopping in while touring on the bike.
Like the protection features without the "over the top" looks of other boots.
Would buy these again.
