Dainese Pannier D-WP Boots Review

Inspired by features and appearance found in the Dainese sport and race boot world, the Dainese Pannier D-WP Boots bring to the table slick looks and premium functionality for the all-season all-weather sport touring rider. Dainese continues to innovate with industry-changing designs and fresh concepts that build upon what has already been established in each segment of the market. With the Pannier, you get all-weather performance, protection, style and a great deal of comfort. It looks like another grand slam for Dainese.

Check out our Dainese Pannier D-WP Boots Review:



Externally, the Pannier features a premium cowhide leather construction with high-tenacity polyamide fabric inserts that act both for mobility and also to provide a slight degree of airflow into this boot. Elasticated leather bellows at the instep and elasticated textile at the sides of the boot also contribute to the solid range of motion and overall mobility of this boot. There are suede insert toe and shifter reinforcements  that add another level of durability and also grip in a key area. One of the key features of the Pannier is the D-Dry waterproof breathable membrane that is bonded to the shell. This maintains the dryness and coolness of the foot, keeping all precipitation out but allowing perspiration to escape through the membrane.

Hard part protectors can be found in multiple strategic zones of this boot. At the shin, a TPU plate protects from an extremely common injury in sport touring scenarios, which is slipping off the footpeg and ending up with a broken tibia. There is a TPU heel counter, hard nylon heel cup and toe box, and TPU inserts at the medial and lateral malleolus for ankle protection. The sole is a Skywalk sole, a third-party-specialist manufactured sole that is high-grip, non-slip and durable. Below the ankle on the inside of each boot is also a high-grip TPU insert that will allow you to interface with the fairings of your sport touring bike. Internally, the airgap liner will help keep your foot cool and dry all day long by wicking moisture away.

The Pannier also features a race-inspired closure system with a rear zipper that is also backed by the D-Dry membrane to ensure continued waterproofing. These boots are available in black only, from sizes 39 through 47 Euro. We are highly impressed by what we see from the brand new Pannier.
