What the trade press says:

82nd award for daytona®: Motorcycle boots in endurance test: Travel Star GTX®
The editors write: When you get your hands on a couple more than six years ago, you have no idea how many kilometers and hours they will accompany you from now on. The boots always kept the feet dry and warm, without tending to overheat in midsummer. The Gore-Tex membrane worked right to the end, the lining shows hardly any signs of wear. From fit and handling to safety features, there's nothing to complain about in no time at all.
58th award for daytona®: Travel Star GTX® – the only with full points
The testers of the journal TOURENFAHRER wanted to find out what characterizes a good boot. Because uncomfortable boots or wet or cold feet ruin any trip. From the safety aspects quite apart. 10 boots were tested. Five received a recommendation. One of them with full points ("managed an outstanding example of an all-round protection with very good comfort") of the daytona® Travel Star GTX.
The conclusion of the tester: Certainly, the Travel Star GTX is no bargain, but worth every penny. Few other boots in this segment provides comprehensive protection, yet so much comfort on and off the bike. It wears as inconspicuous as a sneaker... "

"Price question "with a clear answer:
For the 08/2006 issue, MOTORRAD magazine subjected eleven pairs of motorcycle boots to extensive moisture tests. Only motorcycle boots in the price range up to 160 euros were examined. The "price question" of the testers was: Do reasonable touring boots have to cost around 160 euros, or will some for 60 euros do? And what can a model for just under 300 euros do better? . The model for just under 300 euros was the Travel Star GTX by daytona & reg; (it costs 279.95 euros).
Conclusion of the testers: In contrast, the investment in the expensive daytona Travel Star GTX boots pays off. Compared to mid-range boots, the Travel Star goes one better: absolutely waterproof, perfect fit and workmanship, maximum safety, best handling, pleasant to ride and comfortable to walk. A top touring boot that has its price at 280 euros. Conclusion: The 160 euro class offers a very good price-performance ratio. With significantly cheaper boots, massive losses in processing and comfort must be expected. Those who want to spend more money actually receive a higher value.
