84. Award for daytona®: Test winner: AC Dry GTX
The magazine MOTORRAD has tested 13 short sheep boots. To find out if comfort and protection can be combined. The Daytona AC Dry GTX has been awarded as test winner: "The Daytona AC Dry is heavier than the competition – that's the only point of criticism. In practice, this is not at all noticeable, it even feels rather light. The most expensive boot in our test is very close to "perfect".

Opinions and contest
Also with the next couple there is no way past Daytona
My first shoes were half height Daytona boots*, which I bought around 2011 after buying my first motorcycle. In the past I was more street oriented and hardly more than 5,000 km a year. In 2015 I rode three weeks through Iceland with a few friends. Here the purchase of such high-quality shoes really paid off for the first time. Simply stop somewhere and make a small saving was no problem. Even in heavy rain I kept dry feet and at 2.5°C my feet were still warm. During deep brook crossings, however, of course water came into the short boots. After the tour travelling by motorbike became more and more important for me. Meanwhile I ride up to 20.000 km a year on asphalt and also in the dirt. You can see the 100.000 km on asphalt, dirt, sand and some snow. Nevertheless they are still dense and dry. Now it's time for new boots. Not because the old boots have become bad, but because next year I will make a dream come true and start a one-year journey through Europe and Asia. But I want higher boots that are more off-road oriented. After testing a few of my friends' shoes, I guess Daytona is the place to be.
*I can't recognize the model anymore and can't find it on the homepage either.

The Road Star GTX have been my constant companion on the bike for over 20 years. From the overturn to the visit of a ditch and the many kilometers run really do not mind the boot. 2 times already been at Daytona, once replace the sole, once renew the shift reinforcement. Fast, clean, effective. Can be recommended without reservation. Since there is the new in M-Star version and above all now also in more than only up to size 42, I will consider but, with my 171 cm the increase times to try.

The first ride in 2021 with the first Daytona boots. Great, why not sooner?
Stefan Gelsdorf, Germany
Still very satisfied after 20 years
My Daytona are over 20 years old and I'm still very happy with the boots (only the shift reinforcement has come loose). Slowly, however, it is time for new Daytona
Often copied, never equaled and worth every cent.
The Road Star GTX is one of the most copied motorcycle boots in the world. But the copies don't come close to the original. And the original is only available from daytona. Extremely high quality and comfortable, awarded 14 times and worth every cent.

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
The FAST BIKES MAGAZINE writes:
"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.
