  • I do not want to think about how my leg would have looked without daytona.


    In July 2014 I suffered a heavy departure with my Honda VTR 1000. Thanks to my Daytona Trans Open GTX I had no further injuries on the left leg except very strong bruises. I do not want to think about how my leg would have looked without the boot. I bought the same boots again, because in my opinion there is no better one!!

    I wear Daytonas ... they put it away easily


    I bought an old travel enduro in 2010. Various modifications have also included the footpegs. Everyone has prophesied to me: That shaves your soles through.
    2 years ago I became a proud owner of an old KLV, again various alterations and again rough Enduro footpegs. Same tenor as before: The soles !! ... Pfft. I wear Daytonas ... they put it away easily. So far no visible wear and good grip on the notches ..best.
    Greetings Marcus Berndt from Vöhringen
  • Here is the expression of German workmanship still justified!


    On 2.8.2000 I allowed my feet the Daytona Modul GTX (original document and box are still available ;-). At that time, I overpowered 379 DM, a proud price, but I never regretted it.
    They accompanied me on many tours, also in the humid north and in the hot and sunny south. They never let my feet down. In the early years, the GTX came regularly to the fresh air, during the offspring they have been little bit neglected, but slowly they are used more often again. Two years ago, the shift gains broke and I recently asked Daytona if they could fix that. Within a short time I got a reply mail from Ms. Frey (Daytona) that the switching reinforcements can be replaced for about 53 €. Last Saturday on 4.11.2017 I packed the boots and took them to the post office. And hold on now! Yesterday on Friday the 10.11.2017 came a package from Daytona and my GTX look almost like the first day !!!
    Madness! Here is the expression of German workmanship still justified! Here can some "model companies" learn a lot. Many thanks to the Daytona team for the great work! Please keep doing your job just like this - as a customer and big drum I remain loyal to you.
    Greeting from Jörg Bechtold

    The boot is a force!


    We, two couples are on the first day of vacation determined, we have decided to use the same boots. In August-September we went to Portugal for three weeks. Arrival and return via Switzerland, France and Spain, around 6,000km. The boot is a force! A lightweight shoe, pleasant in the warmth and ideal for sightseeing. In warm and hot weather, we don´t need to do the wet test. One more recomemendation for a greet boot.
    Paul Boillat from Switzerland.
  • Still in use.


    Another season with dry feet. Model Daytona Frey. Should be one of the first ever. Was adopted by the uncle and are driven :-)

    (Editor's note: The model is called "Hit", it was made in this version from 1985 to 1992. So the boot could be on the way for over 30 years ...) Jörg Loucky, Germany

    In any case, a good choice.


    My Daytona boots are not only a good companion on wonderful tours, whether in the rain or the sun. They are also an excellent companion for such actions. In any case, definitely recommended.
    Norbert Rudolph, Germany
  • My faithful companion ...


    ... on many European racetracks and now and then in the cafe around the corner.

    At daytona service and quality is a top priority


    Germany, a service desert? At Frey daytona by no means! I am a diabetic and must wear orthopedic shoes. In my old motorcycle boots it was not possible to continue driving. I heard there is the possibility at daytona to make motorcycle boots custom-made. Despite the company holidays at daytona, Mr. Frey has allowed me to come to him on my holiday trip to the south and measure my feet and hand over the inserts made by my orthopedic technician. In the last week it was so far. The boots were sent home. I immediately went to my doctor and asked him for his opinion. He immediately gave me the green light and the first tour with safe shoes could be driven. Thanks again to Mr. Frey and the whole team of daytona. I can recommend to everyone, in case of problems with the feet turn to daytona, there is service and quality capital. MfG André Hanneken, Germany
  • For me this is always the first choice!


    Wow, what great boots! I drive since 1979 motorcycle and was always satisfied with the Daytona boots. This year, I drove the Grand Tour de Alpes from Lake Geneva to Monaco. Subsequently to the Grand Canyon de Verdon. My feet were always well protected thanks to Daytona. These are by far the best boots - comfortable and safe! Ralf Philipp, Germany

    Indestructible. A purchase I have never regretted.


    I have since 1985 the motorcycle driving license. At that time it was not so far away with proper motorcycle clothing. A solid jacket, jeans and possibly springer boots from the BW stock of Papa. But when I made my dream of owning my own machine after 25 years, I was looking for a better shoe selection than a sprinkling boot after a bad experience with air passengers. Get a lot of recommendations, but ultimately always out running on a brand: DAYTONA. So I looked around and got my first pair of DAYTONAS. And still hold, are comfortable, still up to date and simply indestructible. Even with low maintenance they keep their promises, and after a short cleaning orgy they look out again as new. A purchase that I, unlike many other purchases for safe motorcycling, did not regret. Greeting Marcus Berndt, Germany
  • Thanks for the (in my opinion) the world's best motorcycle shoe product!


    Hello Daytona Team, 05/2013 my wife and I have been with very well-known motorcyclists of history in the Pyrenees. We had a very eventful trip and the Pyrenees were we to "feet". On Saturday, 06/08/2013, the day after our trip home to 18: 30h, I have suffered an engine failure a polytrauma with several heavy injuries. Through the good protective clothing (gloves, leather suit, helmet and boots daytona XCR) the worst was prevented. Apart from a broken toe I fortunately had my feet protected and the Daytona Spirit XCR boots were the only thing left to me, because the other protective clothing was cut up or so damaged that they had to be disposed of. Today I love my boots and can again take part in road traffic. Thanks for the (in my opinion) world's best motorcycle shoe product! Keep it up!
    Reiner Vopel, Germany

    Waterproof, super-processed and protection from serious injuries


    I've been riding motorcycles for over 28 years, and always with protective gear and boots. Your boots are a weight that is waterproof, super-processed and protect you from serious injuries.

    hat I can personally judge since I had a self-inflicted motorcycle accident on 18.09.2017 in Sardinia and my boots by the high safety standards such as ankle protection, steel footbed, high stock, good leather etc. I have my foot, otherwise I would probably have turned off Service. Since my motorcycle got stuck in the broken road and turned 180 degrees and my foot was under the bike. Thanks to your shoes, I've only gotten a couple of fractures on the lower leg and ankle, which is the worst evil I've lost my foot.

    Thank you so much again for making such shoes. And my new boots will also bear the name Daytona.

    With kind regards
    Thomas Würth, Germany
  • Happy feet happy rider!


    I wore my daytona road stars from boston to north adams to montreal through labrador and newfoundland and back down again. Happy feet happy rider!

    Super service, super boots


    After 20 years, I have again started to ride a motorcycle. From a friend I got the tip to buy Daytona boots. With the enhancement in the Ladystar GTX, I was able to realize the dream and now drive a BMW. On 12.09. the switch amplified and I wrote to Daytona. Hardly to believe, but the answer came right the next day. I sent the boots and got today (not even a week later) to match the great weather my super comfortable boots row again. They shine like new !!! Andrea Schütz, Germany
  • 120,000 km without problems


    After 16 years and about 120,000 km in wind and weather, it will be time to visit the company Frey and buy a new nonstop GTX. Never had a problem with the boots during this period. I can only recommend the best recommendations for this product.
    Andreas Petter, Germany

    In April 1978


    I bought my first pair of Daytona boots model Thruxton at Harro in Rohrdorf. There were 2 more pairs of Daytona boots "Traveler" and "TransOpen". 350,000 km with 3 pairs of boots, that makes no other boot mark so fast. If there is a new purchase, there is only one choice for me - Daytona!
    Karl Steinmetz, Germany
  • There must be only one


    Some people have many boots in their wardrobes. For example, for optical reasons. For motorcycling but only one boot is needed. The one from Daytona. Since then I drive her boots need, I do not want another more. Oliver Passelat, Germany

    There's just nothing I can complain about.


    For years, I swear on my Daytona, Why should I buy something else? Why should I be so stupid as to take something worse? My wife, who is now riding a motorbike, also gets it. There's just nothing I can complain about. I hope that you will continue to remain on the market and beibehaltet your products. I won't stand in the way. Richard Hammann, Germany
  • My big thanks to all the staff and the boss of Daytona.


    For my feet, I have never really got shoes in the trade. When I visited Eggenfelden I could not find a shoe. Then the company owner was brought, who measured my feet and told me that the appropriate shoes were made for a small surcharge. Said and done. What then completely surprised, was only a week delivery time. And what a miracle, the "Arrow Sport GTX" have immediately fitted, no pressure and no more pain. You can even go on the road with it. The boot is worth every euro.
    Peter Kopecki, Germany

    Because I have relatively short legs ...


    Help me the BURDIT XCR® over the missing centimeters away. Now fits my XSR. Thank you, Manfred Götz Germany

Winner of the hearts - daytona Carver.

Some boots seem to be a question of the heart as well. In the issue of the MOTORRAD from the 19.12.2014 wrote a test editor: „In the test, the boots out of plastic from the competition were better in sound absorption. But looking at the comfort in wearing is good leather, as by the daytona Carver, unbeatable. Those sport boots fit after a short time of wearing as good as a pair of socks! I just like this natural material more and leather gives the best abrasion resistance.“ This private and individual judgement of course touches our hearts…
