If they last just as long, they'll probably be the last ones I buy

Suddenly broken! 25 years, 8 motorcycles, over 180000 km and suddenly broken! Unbelievable, a shock, after a motorcycle week in the Harz Mountains in July 24, I suddenly discovered large holes in the soles of my Trans Open GTX, which are over 25 years old. You've ridden all over Europe from the Mediterranean to the North Cape on 8 of your own motorcycles and several work bikes that I've looked after, and now this. As they always did their job perfectly and I never got my feet wet even with these holes in the soles, the sadness of having to part with them is all the greater. But luckily you can order new ones and if they last just as long, they'll probably be the last ones I buy. DAYTONA, you have the coolest motorcycle boots, safe, sustainable, comfortable and always there when you need them. Greetings from the Ammerland Ralf K.


I am totally thrilled!

I was somewhat skeptical about the experience reports published here. Especially the statements that the Daytona should also be suitable for longer walks. I simply didn't know that from previous motorcycle boots. But it's true: my Daytona Lady Pilot GTX are so comfortable and finally nothing pinches when riding. I love these shoes and wouldn't want to be without them! Thanks to the whole team for this great quality and performance. Hats off!


But if I ride the next pair for just as long, they will outlive me

Dear Frey, after about 30 years with my motorcycle boots from you, I am now ready to buy a new pair. A few years ago, I considered having them re-soled, which I think is basically a very good thing. But if I ride the next pair for just as long, they will outlive me. These boots have seen me through all weather conditions and there is no question of whether I should change to another product, unlike the rest of my motorcycle equipment, such as helmet, jacket, trousers, etc. I would therefore like to take this opportunity to congratulate them on such a great product! Keep up the good work.

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."

Higher Stand. Better support.

daytona® has developed special motorcycle boots for smaller female and male bikers. A combination of an internal heel elevation and a higher sole makes these boots 6 cm "bigger". With the higher stand you reach the ground easier when stopping, you stand more secure and you can support the motorcycle better.

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.
