Being popular is a mixed bag. From pre-school, to high-school, music to movies, technology to haircuts, a lot of things have buzz. While it is often perplexing why some things are popular and others are not, one thing that can be counted on is that things that suck will, in time, show their true colors. It’s a fleeting thing for many, as their popularity is based on flash, with no substance to back it up. Sustained popularity, however, as can be referenced by the Dainese Torque series of motorcycle boots, is only earned through continually providing value that can be counted on.
With the new Dainese Torque D1 Gore-Tex Boots, the lineup of hugely successful motorcycle boots takes a new step forward into all-weather functionality. In adding the world-class waterproofing of the Gore-Tex membrane, the Torque D1 Out GTX Boots have upped their inclimate weather game to industry-leading standards. As with all boots in the D1 Torque Out lineup, the new Gore-Tex option has been designed to stand firmly at the intersection of comfort, protection, and that signature Italian moto-sexy design. From the flexible joint construction that offers substantial support without making riders’ ankles feel like The Tin Man pre-oilcan, to the high-grip TPU inserts, D-stone outer shell construction, magnesium inserts on the outer side of the heel, and an air canalization system for increased comfort, the Dainese Torque D-1 Out Gore-Tex Boots propel the industry-leading lineup forward into 2016.
Dainese Torque D1 Gore-Tex Boots Review:
Quick popularity is built on shaky ground. It rarely lasts. However, that which has been earned through years of effort, focus, and continual improvement, such as has been shown by the Dainese Torque D1 assortment of boots, can be counted on to deliver time and time again.
Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…
Enjoy the ride,
