Opinions and contest
Others I would not even try on
Bought Daytona Road GTX in 1995, still dry feet today in 2022 in the worst weather (heavy thunderstorm at Wörthersee with ping pong ball-sized hail and blocked roads). The shoes still look like they came from the shop, except for the gearshift reinforcement that has crumbled over the years. Apart from Daytona, I wouldn't even try on any other shoe. I bought Daytona shoes for my son in the photo next to me. He too had dry feet. Thank you for this outstanding quality.
Always dry, ventilated and safe
My motorcycle tour with tent and sleeping bag through the Baltic countries was interesting and eventful. Unfortunately, there was a lot of rain! When camping in the evening I often saw and heard only how other motorcyclists complained about wet and cold feet. This problem I had absolutely not, because my Daytona Road Star GTX boots have never let me down, as on all other tours. I always had dry and well ventilated shoes on and that for many biker years! Thank you Daytona for the quality and safety!
The boots kept me warm and dry
This is Chris Key from New York City. Thank you again for the amazing tour of the factory when I was visiting Germany. I am so happy with both pairs of boots that I bought and I am grateful for the “advanced model” of the summer lightweight boot.
I am currently using the new Road Star boots on a journey through Alaska and I have been tagging your IG all along the trip.
The Road Star boots were flawless in the Arctic Circle. I was in harsh conditions, rain and wind and snow on my travels north and the boots kept me warm and dry!! Thank you again.
Simply better than the others
Our tour to the Bavarian Forest in August 2023. After 5 hours of riding the motorcycle in the pouring rain, the Daytona Journey proved itself, among other things, with its absolute tightness through the incorporated Goretex membrane. Also during subsequent smaller excursions, the Daytona Journey could again clearly set itself apart from my previously worn motorcycle boots by its pleasant wearing comfort.
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.

Travel enduro boots with cross genes and 7 highlights.
All those who like it sporty will find a partner for their adventures in TransTourMan GTX. The travel enduro with the cross genes comes off-road. Nevertheless, you don‘t have to forego comfort: waterproof and breathable, with well padded, solid protectors and clever details such as exchangeable wear parts or the super comfortable entrance, for which zipper and Velcro have been combined.

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.
