In between installing shocks, calipers and an exhaust I stopped at Motto International with Chantal to get her a pair of summer mesh Rev-It riding pants. While I was the I tried on the new Gore-Tex Street Runner shoes by Dainese. If DSC00726 you remember from last year I had purchased a pair of Dainese Torque boots. I had wanted something a little less restrictive and far more comfortable for walking around stores and for riding around town. However, I also wanted a shoe that offers some technical safety features.

DSC00727 I had tried on many shoes and lower boots but none were more comfortable than the Torque boots until today!

I walked out of Motto International with a pair of Dainese Street Runner Gore-Tex Shoes. They are smart looking to wear with my riding jeans, comfortable to walk around stores and offer some nice safety features. The rubber sole offers excellent grip and support on the road. Better than my boots. The best part is they fit perfectly. I find myself wearing them around the house after a ride because they are so comfortable.
