Dainese ST TRQ-Race boots

I've had them for a couple of months now, very happy with them. The Velcro adjustments are nice when going from leathers to jeans. They flow decent air and have been comfortable. Only thing I changed was putting in different sole inserts, the originals transferred a lot of vibration from the pegs.

Thanks, are the inserts comfortable though, other than the vibration? For example when you are on the pegs or walking around? My current race boots offer lots of protection but have no inserts at all and no room to fit any, just bare hard leather. After a few sessions on the track my feet are sore and forget walking around in them. May have to visit the Dianese store in a few weeks to try them on.

black boots are not fly. Go white irregardless of what color your leathers are. The stormtrooper look is very fly.

i'm expecting TRQ pro in the mail. i got a set, but wrong size

i like them better because of the inner boot. they seem to be super comfy!




and they look fly even in black, because the flyest guy on the bike, rossi, wears them too...

Dainese ST TRQ-Race boots

I suppose the original inserts were ok. I've had feet issues with my alpinestars and I was able to remedy that with new inserts so after riding with the Dainese boots I felt I could improve them the same way. I think they are relatively comfortable walking around on so I would guess that they would offer an improvement from that stand point. I bought mine at the D-Store in Schaumburg.
