Soggy feet ruin a good ride. Simple as that. To combat this, many boots offer waterproofing capabilities. However, if wet feet are the worst, second on the list are non-breathable waterproof liners that don’t let the perspiration escape, thus leaving your feet equally soaked in sweat. That is where Gore-Tex comes in. As the industry standard for waterproof and breathable material quality, Dainese’s choice to use the GTX membrane in their new Nighthawk D1 and Street Darker footwear only further solidifies their commitment to world-class motorcycle boots and shoes.
The Dainese Nighthawk D1 Gore-Tex Boots are built to be comfortable, long-range option for all of the miles ahead. From TPU reinforcements to rigid inserts, the Nighthawk D1 Gore-Tex Boots are constructed with quality that puts allows them to meet the CE-Cat II Standard, while also remaining lightweight and cozy for long rides. The new emphasis on comfort with the Nighthawk D1 can be seen in the more walk-in-able sole, as well as a superior ergonomic design that allows for increased mobility off of the bike.
