    A safe companion for life


    Sounds hackneyed, but safety first! Half a year ago I might not have talked like that. Before I always drove with normal shoes for financial reasons. But then, in an accident, I had a torn ligament on my foot. The fall happened not with the motorcycle, but with the bicycle! And that at moderate speed. Not to think about what can happen with the motorcycle. But from such situations one learns and therefore I have bought myself a new companion for the life. - Thank you Daytona. Alexander Litvinov, Germany

    Far, far ahead of all competitors


    "Made in Germany" ...rare, but it still exists, the term... I have been wearing daytona motorcycle boots for 37 years now and will continue to wear them for at least 20 years until I stop riding motorcycles. At the age of 15 I started riding motocross races. All the money I could earn at that time I put into my passion, motorcycling. As much as my parents would have liked to support me financially, with four children and a salary it was simply not possible at that time. I had bought my first vehicle and all my equipment in used condition, including my first Daytona boots. They were like on the photo, but in black and white :-) Until today I have been riding a few types of motorcycles (motocross, off-road, trial, supermoto and road) and daytona boots have always accompanied me. ...almost always, because I have tried a few competitors... For me, daytona still lies today in terms of design, quality, service and, above all, corporate management... no... today even more so... far, far ahead of all competitors. Greetings to the management, all employees and of course to all daytona friends, Jürgen Beier Germany
  • Never another brand


    5 years ago I took over my father's very old Daytona. They have been serving him faithfully for a long time and I have also descended thousands of kilometres with them. Never again another brand, really great what you are producing in our region! Philipp Radecker, Germany

    Without Daytonas it does not work


    On the way with borrowed Daytonas, because the good weather came back faster than the boots from the repair.
    Bernhard Reckmann, Germany
  • I'm excited


    I have owned Daytona boots for 5 years and I am thrilled! On the photo I stand in Daytonas at Kazakh - Chinese border and I am happy!! Greetings to Daytona - Team
    Vitalij Tchernych, Germany

    Others are not worth a try


    After 5 years and a fall experience they are still comfortable and top. The only drawback The sole is almost smooth. Buy me Daytona again and again, because I attach importance to German complete production. I had recently tried on an Enduro boot with the Asians: Size 48 was max.47. The buckles were not stuck. The screws of the buckle holder were rusted .ALSO: It was not worth a try. Conclusion: Quality and production= DAYTONA
    Walter Fasse, Germany
  • First cream ride comfort


    Every year, Daytona is my faithful companion on my GSR. Whether short-haul or day trip, the ride comfort is always first cream.

    My M-Star


    10 years, 120,000 km, on the way to overhaul.

  • They do everything


    My Trans Open GTX have seen in almost exactly 10,5 years and about 90,000 km in my possession for the third time already the North Cape and also quite a lot of Europe. As you can see in the picture, they still have a lot to do and keep my feet nice and dry even on longer trips in bad weather over gravel in Scandinavia. Christian Kunder, Germany

    8 years, 1 boot


    For the past 18 years I am traveling with the same pair of daytona boots summer and winter. Work-up has been necessary now I send them well but soon into well-deserved retirement. During a fall of 50 kmh and the stupid attempt yet to stabilize the load with the foot, I've broken my ankle unfortunately a few years ago because no help was in sight but kept on the boots. Due to the swelling, the leg was wonderfully splinted in the boot and I was able to drive independently to the hospital the next day. Not recommended for imitation !! Magnus Spangemacher, Germany
  • Absolute top Quality of Protection and Comfort


    I have been riding all types of motorcycles Harley Davidson triumph and Ducati, I grew up three streets away from the Indian motorcycle museum in Springfield Massachusetts, and I have always had a passion for motorcycles. In searching for motorcycle boots I have tried everything, and the absolute top quality of protection and comfort is the Daytona boot. Alex DeAngelis ,Super bike racer, is one of my closest friends, and I have the advice on the best equipment possible, he gives a “thumbs up ;)on these boots. Danke, Grazie and thank you Daytona! Great Job. Christopher Perrotta, USA

    Well equipped for all weather


    I've been riding Daytona Journey in almost any weather for years (and the Road Star GTX on the other days) - as well as in August via Switzerland to Spain. Since it was nice weather, I left the GTX at home ... and it came as it should not come. I drove directly into the rain. They have long defied the rain, but the water eventually went through anyway. Thankfully I was able to dry the shoes in the hotel overnight - the GTX were at home ... Since then I always have the 2nd pair as a replacement ;-))) and sometimes as in the photo ... Regina Hülsmann, Germany
  • Heat, rain, drive, walk ... all the best


    Hello, for about 70,000 km I have with the Daytona Strive GTX the pure driving pleasure, even in pouring rain and at 38 degrees in the summer. Also on foot a first-class boots !!! Greetings, Mike from Saxony-Anhalt. Mike Seydel, Germany

    20 years


    Hello, After several fast unfit low-cost boots and then Springer boots (uncomfortable) it was anno 1998 a few Daytona RoadStar. After two uncomfortable slips (feet but well) and twenty years was finally - sole broken when jacking up. A new pair of the same size fit right away. Nice, that there was the Road Star still. Matthias Borgers, Germany
  • These are by far the best


    I've owned my Daytona's (M Star GTX) for a month now. I've had many boots over the years and these are by far the best, so much so that I really wish I'd bought a pair years ago as they would still be going strong. Even better they provide the right amount of lift to help muscling my rather tall and heavy motorcycle around much easier and safer. However I have a tiny gripe to share. Because the manufacturer recommends application of the Daytona polish BEFORE first use; why isn't a small complementary tube included in the pack? I had to order a tube online and wait nearly a week before I could use the boots.
    Reg Pengelly, United Kingdom

    I've had my Daytonas


    for almost 10 years and they are still in top form. The quality is outstanding, keep it up :)
    Jonathan Häde
  • Inherited from the father and still here :)


    These brilliant boots, like their conspecifics, have already experienced a lot. You have successfully protected my father's feet for many years and have been mine for almost 5 years now. I do not need to mention how incredibly comfortable they are. That's why I can not part with it. Although the years, and one or the other fall, have easily added to the visual, I still wear them. The thought of getting new ones is postponed every time. Great boots !! Mike Dönni, Germany

    Experience? Quite simply ...


    The first motorcycle shoe that really fits! Eric Chorzepa, 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…

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 oft used expressions is that if racers weren't paid to wear boots, they'd all weare Daytona. And this isn't so far from the truth, going by what we've been told here at FB by countless racers over the years. Any 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 twin-shoe philosophy.

Daytona understands it well, anyway to spend an externally trimmed on sneaker motorcycle boots many security Goodies: bilateral knuckle protection, abrasion resistant reinforced gear, reinforced inner sole with hot-galvanized steel.

The AC PRO

Driving racy, arriving safe and ambling comfortable afterwards: You can’t do that with every boot. But the AC Pro comes this idea very close though. He combines the qualities of a sporty daytona boot with the comfort of a only ankle-high shoe. So you can walk without big restriction.

>> more information to AC PRO



The AC4 WD

Of course are boots for riding a motorbike. But they should handle a short ramble through the city or in the café or the route to work as well. Though not everyone likes the solid hold of a high shaft. In this case is the AC4 WD a great choice - a boot, whose shaft only reaches the ankle. WD stands for „walk and drive“, the boot shows its benefits when walking and driving as well.
