Dainese Women's Svelta Gore-Tex Boots
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.

I'm in love.
I was in serious need of some waterproof boots. I ride year round in all weather conditions, and have had some bad luck with past purchases. Should have just started with the Gore-Tex.
I LOVE these boots. They fit comfortably when I first tried them on. Spent the day breaking them in inside. My shoe size in US is between an 8 and 8.5 reg, and I went with the size 39 EU size. When I wear wool socks or winter socks, the boots are snug, but not unbearable. I have also worn these boots with regular weight athletic socks, and have not felt much slippage.
My last trip I rode my 2008 DL650 from Seattle, WA to San Diego, CA, and then across the Rockies to Indianapolis. Since I did this in summertime, my calves were a little sweaty at the end of the day, but I was never uncomfortable while riding. They boots are also comfortable to wear when walking around town. I often wear them to work and don't bother changing shoes if it's a cool day. (But don't wear them all day indoors if there's no A/C). They now have a few scuffs and scrapes after 3,000 miles, but integrity hasn't been compromised.
In wet and rainy conditions, I was so thrilled I was giggling on my bike. I've been caught in a few thunderstorms, and there was not a drop of moisture in my boots afterwards.
Style-wise, I am perfectly happy. I wouldn't wear these boots with skinny jeans, but they're cute when I wear boot-cut jeans over them. They don't look bulky when they're under my pant leg.

These boots are wonderful. They do run a tad small though so, order 1 European size up from your usual. The toe box is really narrow, so some extra room would be nice to wiggle toes. If I hadn't been so close to needing them for a trip, I probably would have exchanged them for one size larger.
Other than that, the boots are great! I walked miles and miles in them on Isle of Man and then continued riding/walking in pouring rain in Ireland for over a week. The boots are truly waterproof and comfortable!

I love this boot!
After trying numerous brands of boots, these are by far the most comfortable. There was no break-in period. The leather is so soft. They also provide great protection. My feet are always cold and get that way easily, and these boots kept my feet warm in cool weather, but not sweaty in the heat. I love my boots!

Great woman's boot!
I bought these a few weeks ago and just got back from a 700 mile, 3 day ride. These boots are very well made and comfortable on the bike and off. I have narrow feet and they fit me perfectly. Love the style and pebbled-textured leather panels and the leather broke in quickly. I can't comment on the long term durability but, so far, I love these boots.
