I think some of the BozBros suits are the same way. I saw Ben wearing his suit on the outside of his boots earlier this season. I can seen it be much more comfortable, know with now the leathers can bunch inside of the boots.

I like the look, looks like drag leathers.

I noticed the pic the Witchdoctor put up of his wife (dementia) riding his busa. She has the Dainese suit over her boots.

I think it makes wearing full leathers on the street look way less Ricky Racer

yup.... dainese suits have the velcro all on the inside to attach to their brand boots plus the extra shin padding in the suit makes it hard to put inside the boot. they have a extra zipper to expand the lower leg area to facilitate over the boot wearing.

Its only going to be effective if you get the Dainese boots, and suit together.

Without each other they are like a helmet without a strap. Protection - yes, but not enough.

Can you explain your reasoning? I don't see how wearing normal boots under a Dainese suit is any less safe.

Okay... the Dainese suit has padding from the knee area all the way down to shin (normal suits will have it only to the knee).

The boots will have it to the shin.

Dainese boots will have it heavier on the lower part and less on the top part (as the suit goes over there to make up for it).

Yes its style, but its a very productive and effective way - the boot being held tightly by the suit and high speeds crashes where your leg hits the floor many times like this > the chances of twisting your ankle and or maybe even hurting your feet are less.

Further more the suit has velcro inside for the boots - its a pair. I think it should be advertised in a better way.

Its like saying I want to get the Icon Jacket with AlpineStars Lower - then zip it. Sure it might and zip and work, but I bet it'll be better to go with an all Icon "made for together" zip upper and lower....

Ye catch my drift?

The that posted his picture above - if you look at his legs, you'll see how the suit is loose and sorta looks open from the rear - I'm thinking when he experiences a lowside @ 100 mph + going into T1 @ TWS (Texas World Speedway), he'll have a nice story to tell how he got road rash in a certain place....

yes and no....I see your points but having a dainese suit I can tell you there is no way the suit will ride up high enough to get rashed above the boot line. The armor will keep the legs down. Yes they might ride up a little but no way will it travel above a standard boot. I would only worry if I had ankle boots.
