daytona Gewinnspiel: jeden Monat ein Paar Shorty gewinnen!

We raffle a pair of Shorty from all submissions every month.

The current winner of the month:

Very reliable and extremely durable

My Road Star GTX has been a faithful, very faithful companion for eight years and about 70,000 km. Absolutely reliable, even when it rains for hours on a multi-day tour. Even in very hot weather, the "foot climate" always remains bearable. It is very comfortable to walk in. A perfect all-rounder. Very reliable and extremely durable. Very easy to care for and with Daytona care cream it actually looks like new after eight years. Now after the above-mentioned use, I am having the boots resoled by the repair service. I'm also going to buy the TransTourMan GTX as a second pair of boots. Because they offer more protection for riding on gravel and in light terrain. Martin Brettschneider, Germany

Absolutely top

Hello, for years my absolute favorite boots, even when it gets dirty and wet. Absolutely waterproof, speak from personal experience. Motorcycle dug in when driving through water, so first dismantle the case and bring it ashore, umpteen times back and forth through the water, remained absolutely dry :-) Disadvantage of my off-road footrests is that the soles wear out faster, but just the days again taken the repair service of Daytona and have them resoled. Greetings Ritchy

Still top after 150,000 km

Moin, I bought myself a pair of Daytona boots in 2010. I've driven so far about 150,000 km with it. Meanwhile, the soles are pretty worn, but the boots are still top! Therefore, I have now sent to Daytona for resole. The price I was quoted is fully acceptable. Hartmut Seeger

Daytona has exceeded all expectations

Originally I bought the Daytona Evo Sports only for the race track, but in the meantime they are also permanently established as boots for all tours. My other boots, of Italian origin, are now in the basement. With regard to repairs, all expectations - on the girlfriend's boots - were exceeded by far, we have never experienced such a fast and very good service before - many thanks for that, to the company and their employees!

Feet dry, rest wet

2019 Lake Garda tour, shower every evening because wet from the inside out, my feet were always dry in the 30-year-old Road Star GTX! I think I'll give the boots an overhaul at your place soon. Left to greet Clint

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.

Continuous rain. Feet dry.

The tour was from Salzgitter to Templin to the "Bud Spencer & Terence Hill Festival". On the way there it had only rained, but thanks to the Daytona boots my feet stayed dry. Super boots, thanks to you. Greetings Dirk

By helicopter to the emergency room. But the feet remained intact.

Hello, I would like to tell you about my crash during the practice for this year's Spa 6 Hours. In the middle of the Blanchimont bend, the rider in front of me decided, to my surprise, to close his throttle. As I could not avoid him sufficiently in 5th gear at 270 km/h, my front wheel touched his rear wheel. As a result, I took off, hit the asphalt several times and finally landed in the gravel. I was taken to the emergency room by helicopter with a shattered hip, broken neck vertebrae and a broken shoulder. After the necessary operation, the fractures and the countless bruises are slowly healing. Only my feet have been spared any damage, which makes my rehab much easier! I wonder if that was due to my Daytona Security EVO boots. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Felix

Four strangers meet - all with daytona

Dear Daytona team, what a coincidence. Last week, four motorcyclists met by chance at a viewpoint near Volterra in Tuscany. A closer look reveals that they are all wearing the same boots. That must have something to do with the quality. Keep up the good work! Christian Schnell

What a repair service. I'm glad we still have companies like this in Germany.

Dear ladies and gentlemen, dear Daytona team! Last Saturday I sent my EVO Sports GTX motorbike boots in for repair for the first time after 11 years and approx. 80,000 km, as both soles, grinders and shift reinforcements on the left had become very worn over the years. As the repair time on their homepage was stated to be between 2 and 4 weeks, I was worried that the job might not be completed in time for my holiday in Sardinia at the end of September. I therefore made a note of this on the repair order.
Well, what can I say......I am more than thrilled. The boots came back after less than a week. The repair was carried out to my complete satisfaction. Although I had of course sent a clean boot, they came back almost as new and shiny. The material quality of the replaced parts and the cobbler's workmanship are, in my opinion, absolutely top class. The amount of the enclosed invoice was just under 142 €, which is more than justified and absolutely fair for this very good work and great service to the customer.
Please pass on my thanks to your employee who repaired my boots for this good work.
I am glad that we still have companies like you in Germany. It's still really "Made in Germany".
Please continue to be so successful. Motorcyclists all over the world appreciate this and will thank you for it.
Daytona...the Best. Once Daytona, always Daytona. Many thanks and best regards from Friedberg, Gert Baltrusch.

Only the feet warm and dry

On the way back from Italy, I was surprised by cold, including rain and snow, shortly before the Furkapass. So I put on all the clothes I could find in my luggage, including thick socks. I still froze, but my feet stayed warm and dry thanks to the Daytona Road GTX.

daytona

Very comfortable boot with GORE-TEX material – i like this!

It keeps me warm during spring and fall season, and dry in unexpected raining conditions! Good grip on the sole and extra protected section at the shifter position. Easy entry in case of a long zipper and additional adjustment options at the calf side for optimal fitting or needed extra space for inserting my pants. Also the quality of this boot is really outstanding. My boot is from 2015! Nearly 7 Years old and it’s looking like a brand new one. Fortunately I have no experiences about the behavior in accidents, but the shaft protection looks good. I highly recommend my boot and it fits great to the rest of my leather clothes. 10 of 10 points.

daytona – it doesn't get any better than this

As you may not be able to see, I always wear my Spirit GTX. I've had the boots since 2016, the sole was renewed once and the pad on top (which is basically not possible with many other manufacturers) and what can I write, my second pair (I don't want to name the manufacturer) is already slowly gathering dust in the cupboard because my foot simply and always cries out for the Daytona's. I have a custom insole in the boot and it is simply perfect. I have an individual insole in the boot and it's just perfect. In my opinion, the boot can only replace Daytona, so maybe I'll be lucky :) My overall rating: the perfect boot for me, in my opinion it couldn't be better, and it has been for years and more than 100,000 kilometres. THANKS

daytonas year of construction 1975

This motorbike is Bj, 1977 with H-registration, My wife's motorbike boots are approx. 2 years older and have also been on the road with a Honda CB 500 Four. They visited Austria, Italy, Yugoslavia, Switzerland and France. I became aware of your raffle because I recently bought new motorbike boots locally in Eggenfelden. Unfortunately, I had overlooked the company holiday. Nevertheless, I got my motorbike boots. Thank you very much again for this.

75 per cent share - experience speaks for Daytona

Dear Daytona team, I was in the Grand Canyon Du Verdon (Verdon Gorge) in Provence last week with a guided tour. We were 8 participants from all over Germany of a "more mature" age with correspondingly long practical experience. Of the 8 participants, 6 wore Daytona boots. All of them decided in favour of your brand due to many years of varying positive experiences. This ratio alone is proof of the decades of quality of your motorbike boots. Thank you

Always dry feet even in constant rain in the Arctic Circle

We were in Norway 2019 and had continuous rain. And it was very cold. I had to buy wool socks there. That was at the Arctic Circle. One of the few sunny moments. But only around 10 degrees. We were going to stay for 3 weeks and went home after two. But I always had dry feet. The boots are worth every penny. Still have them.

You can't walk on water with Daytonas, my ass!

There you go! My first real motorbike boots (1983) were already Daytonas (at that time with the rear zip and leather gearshift reinforcement) and since then again and again - because registering motorbike boots is not something you want to do that often. Because it takes time. So I prefer quality that is also repaired! With many thanks for 40 years of happy feet while biking, Andreas Woest

The foot surgeon asked which shoe protected me so well

Hello dear Daytona team. I've been riding your Daytona Trans Open GTX (still the first pair) for several years and now well over 100,000 km. They have also been overhauled by you, everything is top notch. I have never had such good boots in my long moped life (well over 350,000 km). Now, on Sunday, I had an accident and it has been shown that the investment in Daytona boots has absolutely paid off. Even the hand and foot surgeon asked what kind of boots I was wearing. The Daytonas have avoided any major mischief, I'm totally thrilled. My foot could be completely lumpy, but I only suffered a fractured ankle, which probably - since it hasn't shifted, also due to the support of the boots - won't need surgery. From here, thank you very much again for producing such good boots. They are worth every penny. Kudos to Daytona, keep up the good work. In my opinion there is no better moped boot.
With friendly biker greetings,
Markus Pirrung

The Roadstar has protected me perfectly

For over 20 years I have been traveling with Daytonastiefeln throughout Europe (preferably in the south;-). Have worn out 2 pairs so far. The next ones will be Daytona Roadstar or Touringstar again. I was 6 years ago with my Versys on the way from Rovereto to Foxi (Touringfahrerhotel) on the road. In a small town I overtook a slow car at the end of the town and accelerated hard. Unfortunately, I realized too late that immediately after the place comes a 90 degree right turn. I jerked again after the car to the right. Unfortunately so violently that I almost touched the railing of the bridge (which came shortly before the bend) on the right. Quick-witted I pulled up my right foot. The foot was squeezed between the tank and the upper railing. Somehow I still took the curve. Later in the hotel room I saw that I had a large bruise on my toes (from the squeeze). If I hadn't had the sturdy Daytonas on, I'm sure it would have hit the foot worse. The Roadstar saved me from a broken foot that way. Armin Seefied, Germany

New motorcycle - and new Daytona boots with it!

At some point it had to be - finally a new sports tourer in my garage! After spending 25 very happy years with my Kawasaki GPZ1100 (built in 1995), I finally wanted to treat myself to a new toy at the end of the 2021 season. The decision was actually quite simple - it had to be a Kawasaki again, of course, and the choice fell on a ZZR1400 (because of the design it had to be model year 2011) with superbike handlebars. What else is there to do with that? After I was more than convinced of the quality and customer service of Frey Daytona and have been a loyal customer for many years, I also treated myself to the matching new Daytona Travel Star GTX boots when I bought the new dream bike. The future of fantastic touring is thus secured again.

I love my Daytona Lady Pilot GTX

This was day 1 in my new Daytona Lady Pilot GTX, that was a little over a month and 2300 miles ago, and I LOVE them, I love and appreciate them more every day!! They are comfortable, protective, and best of all, they allow me to get 2 feet down on my motorcycle which was a lifesaver on many occasions, greatly contributed to my confidence on my new motorcycle, and has been a wonderful experience!! I greatly recommend these boots to all female riders out there, they are a definite necessity if you are shorter and/ or riding a bike with a taller seat height!! Thank you Daytona for making such a fantastic boot!! Sherry Antony, USA

Accident at 70 km / h and thanks to Daytona nothing happened.

Thanks to all Daytona employees, thanks to you and your boots I was able to get up after an accident as if nothing had happened. I had an accident at 70 km / h, where a 250 kg motorcycle landed partially on my feet or boots and slipped a few meters. Even in the hospital, everyone was amazed that nothing more happened.

I had an accident at 70 km / h, where a 250 kg motorcycle landed partially on my feet or boots and slipped a few meters. Even in the hospital, everyone was amazed that nothing more happened. The only injury I had was right there where the boot left off! I keep driving my Spirit XCR, even if it shouldn't be after an accident, but unfortunately there is not enough change for new ones. The feeling of security with Daytona is now phenomenal. Thank you, you are doing a great job. PS: The picture was taken after the accident. Jacek Ruth, Germany

My first boots were from Daytona

When I started riding my motorcycle, back in 1980, my first boots were from Daytona. I didn't know the company and didn't know that it wasn't that far away from me. Back then without Gore-Tex. Today I own a touring boot and a light shorty for the summer, both of course with Gore-Tex.

A safe grip even on ice and snow

I spent four nights in Tyrol with my buddy in July 2021. One of our tours went on the Kaunertal Glacier Road. From the glacier restaurant Weißsee parking lot, located 2.750 meters above sea level, we walked into the accessible crevasse. My Daytona Journey boots gave me a secure hold even on ice and snow and my feed stayed dry.

A good choice for extreme conditions

With 8 motorbikes, we made a four-week tour through Colombia in November 2021. During this time, we rode almost 5,000km through the whole country. Since we were on the road in the rainy season, I decided to take my Daytona boots with me. An incredibly beautiful, but also exhausting tour that none of us will forget. Through the Sierra Nevada up to 4,000 m at 4 degrees on the peaks but also 38 degrees Celsius in the north of this dreamlike country, in the Caribbean. Heavy rains flooded the roads - sometimes up to 45 cm high. Extreme temperatures and high humidity gave us a hard time. My Daytona always kept my feet dry. 8 hours a day in the boot was ok. No pressure or sweating in the boot. A good choice.

For me there is only one

After almost 20 years on the race track with various gravel bed stays and my third pair of Daytona EVOs, there's only one thing for me: a new pair of Daytona EVO GTXs. At over 50, I want to reach the finish line dry on my tours! Keep it up! Greetings Johann

Between crash barrier and footrest - luckily with Daytona

Shortly after the start of our day's stage, I got caught on the opposite side of a bend and got my foot caught between the crash barrier and the footrest. I don't want to know what my foot would have looked like without my Daytona boots. So herewith a thank you to you. I am well again and am just about to choose the next pair of boots :) Best regards, Claudia, Germany

Now I am glad

Back then, at the age of 16, new to the passion of motorbikes and with no idea of anything at all, I went with my mother to the nearest outfitter for motorbike clothing, the one with the red L. There, the nice salesman managed to get me Daytona touring half-boots for over 300 euros. There's nothing like safety, but for a novice rider and new to the hobby with a 125cc, something cheaper might have done. Now, over a decade later, I'm glad I chose those boots back then. I still wear them, they don't look like new anymore, but the used look suits them well and they work anyway. I can't tell which model it is anymore, I suspect a predecessor of the current GTX range. The acid test was my trip to Norway in the Corona year 2021. Two weeks, my motorbike, a tent and me. And of course the Daytona boots. Whether 30°C in the sun or 6°C in the rain on the mountain pass - my Dayonta always offered me the necessary stability. Whether it was a short hike to the next waterfall or a small fall on the gravel passage, the boots accompanied me. More than 10 years and tens of thousands of kilometres later, I can say that nothing else will ever get on my feet but Daytona.

Pleasantly dry in the rain

The Service-Burner

Dear Daytona people, it's nothing new that you produce the world's best motorbike boots, which are really worth every penny they cost, and that you repair these great boots in beautiful Bavaria within two to three weeks if necessary, is something that everyone is whistling about - and it's also on the homepage. But what I experienced with Daytona is a real bummer when it comes to service. The slide of the zipper on my almost new boot broke off. I sent the boot to you on Monday - and what did I get? On Wednesday I received a dispatch notification, and on Thursday I had the repaired boots back at home with an invoice for 0.0 EUR. That's what I call madness! Insanely good customer service, keep it up!!! LG Olaf

A true companion

I've been riding a GTX since 2013 and ordered new ones right after my fall because the zip broke - thanks to the boot, NOTHING happened to me. I'm thinking of having my "old" companion refurbished.

Two men, one pair of boots

Hello and a good day, my experience with Daytona: I was in Rijeka and met two men there who had an amputation on their left and right foot respectively. One evening we met in a bar and they told me that they met every three years to buy a pair of Daytona Evo. One bought the left shoe, the other the right. Well, there is such a thing ... Best regards
