Dainese Street Darker Gore-Tex Shoes

Darker is not only the name, but the overall disposition of the Dainese Street Darker Gore-Tex Shoes. A departure from the pre-distressed urban footwear we have seen from Dainese thus far, the Dainese Street Darker Shoes have a deceitfully low-key, classic sneaker appearance that belies their strikingly technical nature. The high tenacity polyamide fabric and microfiber upper cloaks a Gore-Tex breathable waterproof membrane, as the shift pads and thermoplastic polyurethane guards fade naturally into the veil of the overall shadowy styling. External TPU reinforcements bolster the structure of the heels and the ankles, the latter of which also utilize internal rigid inserts. Just like a blacked-out, unmarked police interceptor, the Dainese Street Darker Gore-Tex Shoes have the goods under the hood- they boast a CE certified safety rating despite their discreetly casual appearance.
