Best Brand

90th Award for daytona®:

MOTORRAD readers have voted the Daytona brand "Best Brand" for the 17th year in a row. Daytona's advantages are obvious. At brothers Reinhard and Helmut Frey, the entire business is focused solely on boots and nothing else. Customers praise the products' waterproofness, safety, wearing comfort and, above all, durability. Production takes place in Eggenfelden in Lower Bavaria. Each boot consists of over 120 high-quality individual parts and is meticulously assembled by hand.

to the result


93rd award for daytona®: endurance test over 9,000 kilometers of continuous use: five stars for the daytona Spirit GTX.

„Quite honestly, a boot like this from the shoemaker‘s shop of the Frey brothers, which is still firmly rooted in Eggenfelden, Bavaria, despite all globalization, laughs at four-digit mileage. The wearer knows this, too, having brought the previous model to over 100,000 kilometers, despite poor care, before wearing comfort and waterproofness began to wane. From therefore remains the top mark for the very light motorcycle boot compared to other touring models. A tip for the trip on hot summer days.“

92nd award for daytona®: Test waterproof sneakers, verdict „very good“ for the AC Dry GTX G2 from MOTORRAD.

„Very high build quality and features, very robust construction, well thought-out fit, no pressure points, very high protection, very high stability, lots of grip, laces stowable ... the AC Dry GTX G2 scores as usual from the German manufacturer with the highest protection and 1-a workmanship. If you‘re looking for safety instead of street style, you‘ll find it with Daytona.“

Opinions and contest

The current winner of the month:

You can't walk on water with Daytonas. You bet.

There you go! My first real motorbike boots (1983) were already Daytonas (at that time with the rear zip and leather gearshift reinforcement) and since then again and again - because registering motorbike boots is not something you want to do that often. Because it takes time. So I prefer quality that is also repaired! With many thanks for 40 years of happy feet while biking, Andreas Woest

The best I've ever had.

My Daytona Burdits I have since 2017 and the have 90,000 km on the shoe and have come around in all of Europe. In Tuscany flooded in torrential rain, the boots full of water. Poured out and dried overnight in the hotel with the hair dryer. Perfectly dry the next day. These boots are the best I've ever had. They have never let me down. And you can ride horses with them too . :):):)


After 20 years still waterproof and perfect

Dear Daytona team, After over 20 years of riding the Evo Sports GTX - always the same pair - I recently treated myself to an upgrade to the Security Evo. I'm thrilled with how well the Evo Sports, despite not receiving any maintenance - has held up over the years. It is still waterproof, fits perfectly, and has only visual flaws. Velcro and zippers are all intact, sliders in place, basically it wouldn't have needed new boots at all. I wrote a short text about it on my blog See Excited to see what I will experience with the new boots over the next 20 (or more?) years. Congratulations on your first-class products, and many greetings from South Tyrol! Jürgen


With the different widths I have found the perfect size for me

In 1991 I bought a SR 500. It was my first new motorcycle that I afforded. Along with it came a pair of new boots from Daytona. In the three decades I have ridden a wide variety of machines and covered a lot of miles in Europe and the USA. Only the boots have remained the same. But now I'm going into the new season with brand new "Road Star GTX". Super that you offer them in different widths. So I have found the perfect size for me quickly. The photo should have been taken in 2017 on the way to the Susten Pass.

When good things happen to you...

Frank Wintzen from Schwalmtal was so enthusiastic about the fact that his old boots, used on countless trips, came back from the "inspection" "almost as new" that he published a little story about it:

Tried and tested ... and graded with a smooth 1

An editor of the magazine "ps sport motorrad magazin" tried out the Daytona Strive GTX: "This boot has grown close to our hearts. Of course, he is not the safety giant like the racing athlete Evo from Daytona. But the great, because sporty everyday boot is also suitable for the fast tour on the country road and has a waterproof Gortetex membrane that really works. After almost two years in continuous use, the Strive shows no signs of fatigue - neither on the zipper, nor on the leather or sole. "And he can still shine in any rain." The editorial staff evaluates according to the school grading system and has awarded a 1.

Daytona Are The Daddies At Making Motorcycle Boots

"Simply put, Daytona are the daddies at making motorcycle boots. They're not distracted by manufacturing other kit, so are devotet to bringing you the ultimate in safety. Many racers sacrifice paid contracts just to have Daytona's top-quality product. Usually top end on price but clearly top-end in results, too. Warming your tootsies from the kings of safety are the new Road Stars - not the sexiest jiving boots, but packed full of protection and assurance with their patented inner/outer booties."

Daytona Is The Ferrari Of The Boot World

And another report of the FAST BIKES MAGAZINE:
"You need top-to-toe coverage when you're out and about on a bike, and nothing protects the toes better than this lot. An often heard quote is that if racers weren't paid to wear boots, they'd all wear Daytona. And that isn't so far from the truth, going by what we've been told about on facebook by countless racers over the years.
All the racers that do wear them, ususally have to pay for the privilege. Daytona is the Ferrari of the boot world in this case, and it's a mantle well deserved. The Security Evo III is the ultimate expression of this safety-shell-boot-philosophy."

Manual work. Worth every cent.

How a daytona® boot evolves from around 120 individual parts.

If you have all the components of one of our motorcycle boots in front of you, it almost looks like an insoluble puzzle. But our 130 specialists in the production know exactly what belongs together and how. After 80 working steps they have processed everything into a new genuine daytona® motorcycle boot. One of about 70,000 pairs of motorcycle boots, that we deliver every year.

The new video from the production shows many of the steps that are necessary to make motorcycle boots with maximum safety, perfect fit and long durability.
