Hi all, bought my Daytona Trans Open GTX boots in 1996 and still ride them today. The boot has accompanied me over 100,000 km on the bike. Absolutely top the shoe :-) Has always accompanied me safely, dry and warm on all my tours. Who has not yet been to Sardinia, should take a look. Countless curves await you there and the grip on the roads is unique. All time good trip, always enough air in the tires and always sit on top.
Stories with daytona®
Satisfied for many years!
Well on the road
I made it as far as Montenegro last year with the perforated Shorty summer boot.
80,000 km, 12 years, 1 boot
After more than 12 years and more than 80,000 km on my BMW (first R1200R, then R1200GS, now R1200GS Adventure) a zipper is hooked and the soles are down. But the boots as such are still in top condition and leak-proof. Nevertheless, I'm going to buy new ones, as I want to take advantage of the improved safety technology of the Daytona motorcycle boots.
Minus 15 to plus 40 degrees
My Daytona Touring Star GTX has been with me for 8 years now for almost 150,000 km all year round in temperatures between minus 15 and almost 40 degrees, snow, pouring rain, and is a real pleasure in the high Alps as well as when training on curves.
20 years - worth every cent
After I'd pretty much refurbished the protective pad for the gearshift on the left Trans Open GTX, I bought new ones today. Same type and fit like a glove right away. Then I quickly checked when I had bought the old ones and it really was almost exactly 20 years ago. I couldn't believe it at first, but the boots are otherwise still great and waterproof. Now my heart is bleeding a little. Maybe I'll keep riding them after all? Until they fall apart for good? But who knows how long that will take :-) Best regards and I'm just glad that there are still top brands like yours that are simply worth every cent!!! Rainer
Dear Daytona Team, I still have my 1st Daytona shoes (Roadrunner) since 1990, so they are almost 34 years old. Had a motorcycle break of 15 years in the meantime. I've been riding my motorcycle again since 2019 and love wearing these Roadrunners. They are comfortable, light and you have the right feeling for shifting gears in these shoes. Yes, I also bought Daytona Road Star GTX in 2019 and wear them most of the time, because I also want to protect the Roadrunners and always want to keep them. Best regards Andreas
My Daytona experience? Quite simple: I bought my first Daytona boots 42 years ago in Eggenfelden in the Daytona store and only found them again in the house 2 weeks ago. Funnily enough, they no longer fit ;-) But they were still in great shape. DLzG, Mane
30 years of Daytona
Daytona boots have been with me for 30 motorcycle years and have never let me down. After trying out other manufacturers I have always returned to Daytona.
Wind, water and snow, my feet never hurt
On the way to Nordkapp on my scooter, 15,000 km in three weeks on the road. Three weeks non-stop in the best shoes I've ever had, in all weathers. "Wind, water and snow, my feet never hurt."
Already used and another 15 years
When I started riding motorcycles in 1989, I bought a used pair of Daytona motorcycle boots. They lasted another 15 years or so. In December 2022, I bought myself a pair of Travel Star GTX boots and bought them one size bigger so that I could wear two pairs of socks in winter. As a motorcycle test rider, I attach great importance to quality and the boots proved this again this year with over 45,000 km - including many kilometers in the rain. The photo was taken this year at the Elefantentreffen ... admittedly after a bit of beer consumption...
Daytona - also for Santas
Since I got the Daytona, I've been riding them almost every day, the other boots are on the shelf... Also recommended for Santa Claus in winter!
Great repair service
I recently sent my Daytona GTX in for repair because the gearshift cover was broken. The boots are already about 15 years old and at first I thought that the repair was no longer possible. As I had grown fond of the boots, I sent a repair request to DAYTONA and promptly received a reply with an offer. The boots came back repaired after just one week and I was amazed - they look like new. Many thanks to the DAYTONA-TEAM!!!!
Well protected in Brno.
Everything fits together wonderfully
A ride with the youngtimer CB500 in the youngtimer outfit including the still well-preserved daytona boots.
Respect for the quality
My specialist's boots are now over 10 years old. And according to him, they are still dry! There is no better advertisement. Respect.
I've been wearing my first pair of Roadstar GTXs for almost 20 years now - and then this super service
Always tight and the best feeling on my feet! Now a pair of new soles was needed and they were sent in. And then the nice surprise: after less than 14 days they came back with new soles and cleanly refurbished. Great service, thank you very much and good luck with your great boots! Best wishes and happy holidays! Joachim Glasow
Dear team! I've been riding a Daytona Evo Voltex GTX for 6 years now. With over 20,000km per season, that's quite a lot of kilometers. Since last year, my wife has also been riding Daytona boots because she has seen how satisfied I am with them. The quality of the boots is really outstanding. My conclusion: Never again without my Daytona! Many thanks for the great work! Best regards from Vienna, Peter PS: As I also like to ride my bike to work from time to time, I would be happy to have a pair of shorts!!!
Good grip and dry feet
Rode the RDGA in September. It was a great experience and thanks to the Daytona GTX boots I always had a firm grip and dry feet.
Lasts almost forever!
In the meantime, however, the switch protection plate on my much-used Shortys has come off and gone. That's why it's a perfect opportunity for me to get my hands on this fine piece as part of the competition. That would ensure another 10 years, so here we go!
Passi Fadaja with friends and Daytonas ...
We in our indestructible Daytonas in Georgia.
Not without Daytona
I've been riding with these boots for 4 years and am still very satisfied, especially in the rain. Daytona is simply indispensable!!!!!!
First ride of the year.
It's always an experience to ride between snow-covered mountains and alongside cross-country skiers. The start of a long season. Greetings DucTom
Once Daytona only Daytona, there is no better
Ride like a pro - with a genuine Daytona prototype
No, this is not a cheap copy from China. As I live near the Daytona factory in Eggenfelden, I popped into the factory outlet to buy my boots. An extremely friendly young lady advised me with the patience of a saint, I think there must have been more than 8 pairs that I was allowed to try on. Unfortunately, none of them were perfect for me. In the end, she went back to the warehouse and conjured up a prototype without the big logo - and they turned out to be perfect! Whether it's the summer heat, rain or now the first cold weather in the fall, I'm absolutely satisfied. Although the boots have a hard shell, they are more than just comfortable. They have now done 20,000 KM and look like new. I'm looking forward to the next 80,000 with my special footwear, from now on I'm an absolute Daytona fanboy. Best regards for touring, Stefan
Top after 2nd repair!!!
200,000 km with Daytona
With my wife in Patagonia. With our Daytonas, of course. My first Daytonas have over 200,000 km on the clock and are still ready for use after 10 years. Ok, I bought new Daytonas in 2023; but my Marathon boots are still in use. Maybe I'll have them refurbished by you again!
Over 30 years of Daytona
Both riders with Daytona boots. And have been doing so for over 30 years. You can't say more about good quality. Keep up the good work. Greetings Rud
Good protection for thousands of kilometers
My Daytona GTX boots have accompanied me on thousands of kilometers. They have protected my feet from injury on three sensitive groundings. The soles will be replaced in the next few days so that I can continue my fun and happy ride in the spring.
A good companion since the late 1980s
I bought this beautiful daytona boot from Bartik in Amstetten at the end of the 1980s. It will continue to accompany me on my occasional rides on the pillion seat for years to come.
Beautiful alpine tour with Daytonas
Worth every cent
20 years of motorcycling, tested countless boots, but since I found Daytona on the market my feet are finally warm and dry. Worth every penny
Photo tour with Kurvenreich
The tour of my life together with my father and Daytona
The tour went from Troisdorf (near Cologne) to and around the Verdon Gorge. Only country roads, 3000 kilometers. I rode: Daytona Boots Road Star GTX.
Never again without Daytona boots.
I always feel safe and secure thanks to the quality and the level of safety offered! Great! Best experience: The small crest at the Sachsenring once completely on my knees. Well anchored in the footrests thanks to the excellent feel of the Daytona boot!
The same boots for 23 years - can they ever break?
I bought these boots over 20 years ago because they were comfortable to wear straight away and gave me a good feeling. In the meantime, I've changed my bike - I only ride maxi scooters - 4 times, but the boots are still the same. I've been on the Grossglockner at 5 degrees, on Lake Garda at 30 degrees and in the Ore Mountains in pouring rain and never had wet or cold feet. I only had to have the soles replaced, but that was no problem thanks to the first-class repair service. I'm beginning to wonder whether these boots can break at all ;-)
Simply satisfied for over 35 years
After 5 years of continuous use, shoes sent in and received repaired again - BOMB SERVICE !!! Thank you
Hi, I've been wearing Daytona boots for several years now. Four years ago, I was really struggling on a tour of Croatia because I had an outgrowth on one foot, similar to a hallux. I passed by the company on the way back - but unfortunately at the weekend. The subsequent contact with the boss personally by phone was very friendly and helpful. In the end, I sent in the right boot with a photo of my foot and got it back molded after a short time. And at a very moderate cost! Since then, I've been even more satisfied and am happy to advertise it - especially the customer service. Kind regards from the North German Plain, Uwe Grote
Thank you for the protection
Dear team, during a group ride, one of our group left the road and slid down a slope. Thank goodness he didn't suffer any major injuries because he was wearing a leather suit and Daytona motorcycle boots. We were happy and I said to myself: "The next boots will be Daytonna! Well then, best wishes and thank you!
Daytona motorcycle boots are simply the best!
Clear recommendation to buy
Hello Daytona, I relied on recommendations from friends when I first started out on my motorcycle, and when it came to boots it was "only Daytona". That was almost 20 years ago now, and the brand has remained the same :-) A clear purchase recommendation on my part! Best regards, Barbara Horn
A dream with and because of Daytona
Summer 2023 Route de Grands Alps France, with the off-road detours Parpaillon, Assietta ridge road, Ligurian border ridge road, Sommelier: a dream with the super boots from Daytona, whether in the freshness at 3000 meters or in the heat at almost sea level, the TransTourMan GTX is my boot that accompanies me :-)
When cult boots meet cult two-wheelers, this is what it looks like!
Even on a Vespa, your feet deserve the best possible protection from Daytona!
All weather on all tours: Daytona
My Daytona boots accompany me on all my motorcycle tours on vacation, about 10,000 km every year, whether in cool England, the Isle of Man or in warm Sardinia, Corsica, Abruzzo, Trentino or South Tyrol. My feet are well protected.
Forever my favorite shoe
Size 39, never worn such a comfortable boot, also the height is ideal to gain a little in size, my favorite shoe forever ...
Always happy with Daytona for 46 years.
The boots for continuous use
I started riding motorcycles again late in life and bought Daytona boots as my initial equipment. The fit and quality convinced me at the time. They have now been a faithful companion on all my tours for 7 years and 70,000 km. Whether in the Alps or at work, during safety training or just for an after-work ride, the same shoes have seen four motorcycles, three helmets, two pairs of pants, three jackets, two leather suits and are as good as new. With Daytona's leather care and leather blacking, the shoe is still chic, even if the ravages of time are now prompting me to use Daytona's repair service or buy new shoes. And guess what, it will certainly be a Daytona shoe again!
23 years young, 100,000 km old
Overhauled once in Eggenfelden. Just under 100,000 kilometers and good for the next 100... In any case, I've never had any problems with my feet.
