Dainese Axial Pro In boots (£379.99)

What’s good about the Dainese Axial Pro In?

These race boots walk a fine line between feel and substance, and do it perfectly. They are stiff in the right places (laterally and in a twisting motion) yet comfortable and flexible at the toes and ankle too. When the bike's trying to feed you information through the pegs, they help you receive it loud and clear. An internal Velcro strap looks like a palaver, but isn't, and helps hold the boot tight to your leg. I especially like the leather panel on the inside of the boot that protects the bike from scuffing.

And what’s not?

There's little to fault here. Fit is fairly narrow so if you have wide slabs of meat go up a size.
