The Articolo 80 concept combines functionality with sleek, contemporary styling. There is a hint of the boot worn by western frontiersmen that epitomizes the spirit of those looking to blaze a trail with a bike and a trend.
Premium materials and state-of-the-art craftsmanship
Supple full-grain Italian leather
The toe protection includes a molded TPU slider to resist abrasion, and is positioned in a way that maximizes flexibility
Anatomic, dual-density TPU ankle protection
Elastic cuff adjusts the boot to fit a range of calf sizes
Velcro flap weatherproofs the elastic cuff and secures the fit
Minimal sole reduces weight and maximizes flexibility, and the even tread pattern gives a more predictable grip
Waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex® lining with gusseted zipper
Wear to the office in cold weather...
I've had many compliments wearing these boots, usually asking how much they cost (b/c they look expensive, they are!) This boot fits a specific niche. For me it's the fact that I can wear a reasonably warm boot with decent protection into the office and be pretty comfy in them all day. The leather on these is quite substantial, yet very supple. The leather is also padded throughout for comfort and warmth. In my experience the leather doesn't scuff, the shiny toe protector does...but can be shined back to normal.
-Warm and tall (just couple inches under knee cap)
-Good protection at heel, toes (w/ slider), ankle (outside).
-Waterproof - Gore-Tex
-No ankle armor on the inside of ankle (only outside). (I think I would have rated 5 stars with the extra protection, but perhaps they would be less comfy that way...)
-Sometimes too warm (indoors)
-The whole sole is tapered for styling, this can make it feel a little less stable on rough roads or if you can't fully touch both feet in the saddle. (not a huge deal tough)
-May not be comfortable for all foot types (think of a coyboy boot made by Cadillac.)
I have the black version of these, and the brown version of the (short) Sportivo.
I wear a 42 in Dainese and SIDI. I have these in a 41 which fit perfect with a dress sock (medium to thin socks), and I have the (short) Sportivo in a 42 and fits just a hair on the larger side when I wear thicker socks. For some reason the shorter version feels better on the larger side(?...)
Note: these look best casual with dark jeans and best office dress with a darker cuffed pant. I can upload some pics if you need.

Nice but pricey
The sizing is a bit odd compared to other boots.
If you measure ay 10.5 and usually get a 11 I would say stick with your tru size. They will strech out.
I have all three versions of the Articolo.
