I have a set of Diadoras, but mine are the waterproof model. Not sure if they are the Express or not. I can't remember. They are very nice boots. Mine have built in shin guards and ankle protectors. They seem to be very well made and are standing up to daily use quite well. Not as much protection as a pair of Oxtar TCS boots, but much more rideable on the street in my opinion. Being an Italian import, they are not a common brand name here in the USA.
