A well-made boot with good protection that doesn't make you look like a power ranger. The styling is restrained enough that you can wear them with your street clothes and not attract any attention--the only indication they're moto boots is the shifter pad and reflective dots on the heel.
I'm not a fan of the lug sole. It's thick and grips the pegs too well. I ride with the ball of my foot on the peg and the lug sole makes it difficult to slide my foot forward for braking or gear changes. Additionally, the sole is quite stiff.
Also note the uppers are Lorica, which is to say they're made from pleather. It's not bad looking, but it definitely doesn't look like natural leather. It does seem quite durable and holds up well to scuffing.
Ventilation on these boots is great. Above 50 mph (at least on my naked bike) you can really feel the airflow.
Regarding fit, I wear a US 10.5D and the Euro 45 is probably half a size too large. I didn't try a 44 but if I were to do it over again, I would.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I did a lot of research before buying this helmet, and after living with it for a few weeks, I'm extremely satisfied.
The materials and build quality are a step up from most Japanese helmets. Although hard to pinpoint, there's a strong feeling of "German quality" with this helmet.
My head measures 61 cm and is an "intermediate oval." Arai and Shoei both fit me relatively well. My Arai RX-Q size XL fit well when new, but is a little too loose after break-in. The Schuberth S2 is slightly snugger, and fits just right now that it's broken in.
As others have said, it's light and quiet. There's relatively little noise coming from the faceshield. On my Monster (upright riding position), most of the noise comes from airflow under the chin. Using the supplied chin deflector helps.
I added the SRC-S system which works really well for those times when you have to be reachable when riding. Paired with my iPhone, callers say sound quality is great and they can't tell I'm on the bike.

REV'IT! Airwave Pants The perfect match for the REV'IT! Airwave jacket, these trousers are also great over-pants to wear on top of your jeans during summer commutes. The large air mesh panels allow for maximum cooling, but that's not all they're on and off in seconds, thanks to the long side zippers, which go all the way up to the hip. Reflective panels at the lower legs ensure great visibility at all times. Even more, the Knox Flexiform CE-approved armor is located in height adjustable pockets, allowing you to position the armour just the way you like it. Available in classic black or fresh silver. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester 600D , PWRshell 500D stretch , PWRshell mesh , polyester rib Visibility laminated reflection at calf Protection fully perforated EVA foam at hips , Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit , regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist , adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features easy entrance zipper at calf , adjustable protector pockets , short connection zipper , elastic at waistband Pockets slit pockets

Like most of the Rev-It products I've used, these seem to be well made. I ordered a size up to wear as overpants. I wear 36/32 jeans and the 2XL is a bit large at the waist, but comfortable everywhere else.
Zippers on the leg go above the knee, making it easy to remove the pants while still wearing your boots.
The knee armor feels very low when my leg is straightened (down on my shin), but in riding position it feels right.
Airflow is good. I've worn them over shorts and jeans. So far in SoCal on cooler evenings (~50 degrees) I haven't been too cold while wearing over jeans.

These knee protectors are light and relatively comfortable (while riding) and fit fine under regular jeans. They are less bulky than I expected. Walking is a little awkward but not too uncomfortable, though you'll definitely want to remove them if you're going to be off the bike for more than a few minutes.
They stay in place well--better than the built-in armor in my riding pants--and are easy to take off with the velcro straps.

With styling like Converse high-tops, this is a nice looking casual boot. The fit for me (Euro 44/10.5M USA) was right on. They don't breathe too well, but otherwise it's a comfortable boot and the added ankle protection is nice to have.

Dainese Air-Frame Textile Jacket Focus Continued comfort under changing weather conditions with excellent ventilation is hard to achieve in a ventilated jacket because whenever the temperature drops, the wearer immediately feels cold. In this case, the Air-Frame jacket offers the best solution by combining the ventilation achieved by ample inserts in mesh with protection against cold air offered by a remarkably lightweight windcheating insert. Provided with ample adjustment possibilities, jacket-pants fastening zip, homologated protectors and a pocket for a G-type back protector, this versatile jacket also comes in a ladies version. Features Removable composite protectors certified to EN 1621.1/97 Standard Boomerang fabric Quick Dry fabric Mesh fabric. Neck adjustment Waist adjustment Wrist adjustment Sleeve volume adjustment Jacket-trousers fastening system Removable wind-breaker liner Sanitized lining Pocket for backspace G1 and G2 Reflective inserts 2 outside pockets Internal pocket

I tried on a number of textile/vented jackets, and this one is the lightest--after a few minutes I forget I'm wearing it. I'm 6'0", 210 lbs, and wear a size 46R suit. This jacket in size 58 fits me perfectly.
With the liner removed, riding in 90F weather is no problem. Great airflow.
I appreciate the full armor along the forearm. I added an Air Shield back protector for even more protection.
