Sizing Information

We tried a selection of these boots in our showroom and found the size chart conversion to be accurate for length. The width of the boots is “medium” or C/D width. We suggest using the size chart to choose a size based upon your US shoe size, or of course choose the European size you wear if you know it. We think the fit of these boots is very similar to Sidi boots. Click the image below to make it bigger:

Our Two Cents

Dianese offers the Raptors Shoes in two versions at present (a WP version will come out later). There is the standard shoe and also the “Air Shoe”. This product page shows the “Air” version so take the link at the bottom of this page to see the standard version. This is a sleek sport shoe which looks fast just sitting here on the desk!.

The styling of the Raptors shoe is made to look very much like a race boot. The sole and toe box areas are low profile to fit under sport bike shifters. The top of the foot has the shifter pad and on the outside of the toe area is an extra bit of material to improve the abrasion resistance in that area. It is made to mimic the look of a race boot toe slider.

I like how the laces are built… the eyelets work with the laces so you only have to tug on the lace ends to tighten up the whole foot… kind of like speed laces on a work boot. And across the tongue of the shoe is an elastic strap with a little pull tab. You can easily tuck the loose ends of the laces underneath to keep them out of the machinery. What a simple solution!

There are built in protectors on each side of the ankles to add some impact protection. The heel cup is also reinforced. The plastic material around the back of the foot and heel is some sort of etched finish which is sharp.

The “Air” version of the boot has panels of micro perforated material which will allow good air flow for hot summer riding. If you look at our closeup pictures of both boots you can see the difference the standard boot and the “Air” boot. Both version have the same MSRP so pick the one to suit your climate. Otherwise the versions are the same.

Sharp boots I must say for the street/sport rider who wants looks and function! :: Paul, 07-25-18

Dainese says: New lightweight ankle-hugging shoes with ventilation and a multigrip sole for summer comfort with total control. Feature generous ventilated panels, ankle protection, asymmetrical lacing and a lace bag for clean lines and safety. Complementing this, the stand-out colorways are enhanced by reflective inserts. The innovative new sole design features multiple differential grip zones for superior grip. Perfect around town and on the open road.
