Also with the next couple there is no way past Daytona

My first shoes were half height Daytona boots*, which I bought around 2011 after buying my first motorcycle. In the past I was more street oriented and hardly more than 5,000 km a year. In 2015 I rode three weeks through Iceland with a few friends. Here the purchase of such high-quality shoes really paid off for the first time. Simply stop somewhere and make a small saving was no problem. Even in heavy rain I kept dry feet and at 2.5°C my feet were still warm. During deep brook crossings, however, of course water came into the short boots. After the tour travelling by motorbike became more and more important for me. Meanwhile I ride up to 20.000 km a year on asphalt and also in the dirt. You can see the 100.000 km on asphalt, dirt, sand and some snow. Nevertheless they are still dense and dry. Now it's time for new boots. Not because the old boots have become bad, but because next year I will make a dream come true and start a one-year journey through Europe and Asia. But I want higher boots that are more off-road oriented. After testing a few of my friends' shoes, I guess Daytona is the place to be.
*I can't recognize the model anymore and can't find it on the homepage either.

Unreservedly recommendable

The Road Star GTX have been my constant companion on the bike for over 20 years. From the overturn to the visit of a ditch and the many kilometers run really do not mind the boot. 2 times already been at Daytona, once replace the sole, once renew the shift reinforcement. Fast, clean, effective. Can be recommended without reservation. Since there is the new in M-Star version and above all now also in more than only up to size 42, I will consider but, with my 171 cm the increase times to try.

Still very satisfied after 20 years

My Daytona are over 20 years old and I'm still very happy with the boots (only the shift reinforcement has come loose). Slowly, however, it is time for new Daytona

Nice people, great service, ideal boots.

A dear hello to Eggenfelden. After my boots got a second life in February 2020 (soles new) and also won, I and my partner on our trip south in Eggenfelden a stop because I wanted to give the shoes to my partner. Our thanks to the nice people from Daytona, who take a lot of time to find the right shoe, and that's not always so easy, you have them for days on your feet. It was after extensive trying a couple of Arrow Sport GTX, which you now already has 9000 km on the feet and is totally happy. Who has the opportunity, take a look in Eggenfelden, the service is right, the people are nice and the shoes fit or are made to fit, with us there is only Daytona on the feet, thank you.

The success proves you right

Dear Frey family, I fahe Daytona since 1982 and bought my 1st boots to fit my Honda CX 500 Euro directly from Harro in Nagold together with the leather suit. Meanwhile I had many motorcycle changes and am just looking for the legendary Road Star GTX. I am very convinced of Daytona and appreciate the quality that has remained the same over decades, the robustness and long life. The success proves you right. Attached is a photo from a rest stop on the way to Italy shortly after burning.
Many greetings Christian Straub, Germany

These boots were made for biking.

Hello Daytona Staff, having purchased these Daytona Highway Boots over 25 years ago I am still wearing them although I purchased a pair of Daytona Non Stop GTX boots in November 2011.The Highway boots have seen rain of biblical amounts here in the UK where it rains everyday HA HA and having toured around Europe for 25 years plus. These Highway boots have kept my feet dry and warm (no leaks what so ever) but are now in their last days of use which is a full testament to the Daytona brand. Mmmmm I wonder if they could be restored / repaired ? Thank You Daytona Stuart Kerr United Kingdom

Not cheap, but worth every euro!!!

Our first ride of the season! And then drove with my wife directly to Louis to buy Daytona Lady Star GTX for you too. It was a great day! I have been driving Daytona for many years and am thrilled. Not cheap, but worth every euro!!! Thanks for that! Best regards from Vienna;

Also suitable for extreme Russian slopes

In 2009 I acquired a pair of "Roadstar" boots, for a trip to Russia, to the North Caucasus. In the Caucasus, I was invited by Russian motorcycle friends for a tour in the mountains. This route was classified by the friends there as EXTREME. I had almost no experience with off-road riding and since my machine was not suitable for it, they provided me with a light, off-road machine. The track that was chosen had a length of about 80 km. It led through deepest jungle and over a so-called tank road, which had also been used by German troops in the Second World War. Well knowing that I was wearing new Daytona boots, I didn't want to miss out on the offer. And off we went into the terrain. If Russians speak of "extreme", then the track is also extreme: water holes up to 1/2 meter deep and mud without end. What a shame for my new boots, but it was worth it. It remained an experience, which I can never forget. My boots have withstood the torture except for 2 cuts on the top layer. I still use the boots today, especially since they were resoled once. After so many years, however, new Daytona "Roadstar" are due this year, but this time without muddy tracks.

Of course Daytona again

I never have to worry about cold or wet feet on my tours, Daytona shoes are for me next to my leather suit the most important and best thing you can wear and buy. I would not want to miss you ... after 12years I have now needed new shoes / boots ... and what can I say: fit, price, function were important to me and so it has become Daytona TouringStar II (VXR-18 GTX) boots again. On a great, accident-free, corona-poor Bikesasion ^^ Axel Schriever, Germany

These Boots are made for Walking…

you might think, that's how super comfortable they are. From now on, the walk through the pedestrian zones / weekly markets will be a completely different. I hope I will not forget my motorcycle yet^^ Tobias Kaminski, Germany

In use since the late 90s

Hello, I bought the boots at the end of the 90s. These have spent with me a lot of time and many kilometers over the Alps, even in the rain with dry feet. Also on the country road the boots have been taken here. Except for the shift reinforcement, which is now somewhat loosened everything is still fine on the boot. But unfortunately I had to part with the boot, as these have unfortunately become too small. They were always good companions. Thank you Daytona. Fred Häring, Germany

I enjoy this great product every time I go on a tour :-)

The best shoe, even in the sand

First excursion of the year to the coast of Schillig / East Friesland. Fantastic weather, beautiful beach and the best part, the Daytonas won't let me down here either. The Daytonas make running on sand a pure experience, because you don't sink into the sand as you normally would with other shoes, but have good stability while running. Daytona again and again.

After eight years of use, they are almost like new

Today, when the snow has melted away and the weather is getting warmer, I took out my mc-gear to see that all was fit for the upcoming first trip for the year. Then I came to think about when I put my Daytona boots away for the winter, I cleaned them and treated them with some Leather Care and after that I realised that still, after eight years of use, they are almost like new with only a bit of care. I remembered the first times I used my Daytona boots and the hughe difference from my earlier boots, they almost felt like rubberboots compared to the Daytonas. This really made me happy and I wrote an e-mail to the dealer who sold the Daytona boots to me, telling him how happy I was with them and that I will never go on a motorcycle with any other boots.
Thank you and best regards,
Henrik Åkesson, Sweden

Thanks Daytona quality no bone broken

I wanted to park my BMW R1150 GS on a parking strip with small paving stones and overlooked a depression (optical illusion). I tipped over and I did not bring my foot away in time. My foot was under the cylinder. Except for bruises, bruises and a thick foot (that's enough) everything remained intact. Two colleagues lifted the machine and freed me. The ankle was not broken and thanks to "Daytona quality" remained intact. Greetings

We are glad to have the Daytonas

After yet another long, hard and beautiful ride on our recent vacation in the Baltics, we found a place to stay for a well-deserved night's rest and are glad to be able to count on the quality of our Daytonas.... Harald Bannasch, Germany

What other manufacturer offers this?

Hello Daytona Team, I own my Daytona Road Star GTX already since 1999 and they are for me still the best motorcycle boots. I also owe to this boot that my left ankle is still in tact, which could be fixed after a fall with a plate and 6 screws. In the photo you can see how the boots are sweating, no a joke, of course how the driver is sweating. I can only recommend this Daytona Road Star GTX (Made in Germany) and what other manufacturer offers a repair service??? Thank you and best regards

A cheer for these moped boots

On a beautiful hot summer day I wanted to drive with my GS just quickly in the village center. Thought to myself, that also works with sneakers!!! Said my wife to me: "The coincidence is e Äächhäsel (squirrel), zieh liewer dei Motorradstiwwel an". I listened to the best of all wives and she was right. At the next house corner, a car came towards me on my side, which I could only avoid by falling. My GS fell on my foot, which remained unharmed thanks to my GTX Roadstar, in my possession since 1991 :-)) cheers to these moped boots.

I have recommend many riders to these boots

Ive been wearing Daytona GTX Road Star boots for over 14 years covering some 200,000 miles in my 3 pairs. I have recommend many riders to these boots. Waterproof and very comfy. Daytona did make me a better gear shift pad as i find the stock ones peel and lift in usage also the underside of the soles wear bad when standing on spike pegs. But they did not manage to save my leg from a footage being pushed in a is was rear ended by fellow rider.The shaft needed to be higher than 29cm i also need a UK13 Wide fit boot so hoping that Daytona can help me soon...

Brilliant

The 2020 season was a completely new start for me. New moped, new clothes, new boots :) I got the Lady Evoque, partly because of the elevation, which I think is brilliant! And despite a lot of protection, strong material and robustness, I can also run around the mountain with the boots (on holiday in the Vosges) or swing in the garden with my godchild. Daytona always go!

Back to Daytonas after a short detour.

My Daytonas: I bought them in 1994 and drove them until 2018, and only got rid of them in 2020. But by then they were really through. A short detour to Alpinestars and now I've ordered the latest Daytona Trans Open again. It was really cool to glide over the roads at 60km/h on the steel caps. That gave flying sparks at their best!!! :-) I'm sure I won't be as hard on the new ones .... great quality, thanks Daytona!

A boot I can rely on

Dear Daytona Team, on my rides I wear the Daytona Trans Open! A boot I can rely on, it is stable and yet comfortable, it is massive and can still be worn sometimes under the pant leg. And? He is tight, just tight without sweating!!! I am absolutely satisfied. Many greetings

Only daytona

Due to my driving style and the different terrains my daytona Urban suffer a lot. When I asked if it was possible to attach grinders, a solution was quickly developed and attached. I no longer drive any other brand of boots! Oliver Wißner, Germany

Wear parts replaced, boots like new

Dear Daytona team, I have worn Daytona boots for many years and I am convinced of the quality. But as with all things, nothing lasts forever.
That's why I recently sent in my boots to have the soles and gear reinforcements replaced and have just received them back.
After just under two weeks including shipping times! And the work was done perfectly, new soles and shift pads made as if the boots were out of production, not 'just' repaired! Super Service! Thank you very much, the new season can come. Best regards

Get back in slowly

Unfortunately, I haven't riding for the last 10 years, since my first pregnancy. But I would like to do driver safety training in the spring and slowly get back on track.
But since my feet have somehow got bigger since the pregnancy, my boots don't fit anymore.
Thank god they haven't had to endure any accidents :)

The best boots for the cold.

The Travel Star GTX, after trying it, I won't hesitate to buy the Lady Star Gtx for my partner, both for me and for her, I only want the best.

They last all year round

I ride my 7 bikes to work all year round. 100 km every day. I rarely have to use the car. 3 to 10 days in winter maximum.
Noticeable: the boots and socks are the same all year round. But clothing is also used in autumn and winter. Sweater, winter jacket and long johns.
The boots hold out. Rain, salt, cold. Summer and winter always the good touring boots from Daytona. They are really exposed to everything that is nasty. And they keep you warm and tight. They are dirty. They are great too.
Thank you Daytona.
Guido Höhn

...

I am delighted with the quality

I have been using the Burdit in size since 2014. 45, who has already accompanied me to Lithuania, Poland, France, Austria, Italy and Switzerland.
I am enthusiastic about the quality and will now also get the Trans Open.

Fit and quality are right

I am an avowed cheat when it comes to moped boots, have tried something different every now and then and honestly have to admit that other manufacturers are not that bad ... but ... nevertheless I keep coming back to Daytona, my first ones have a new sole get and are simply TOP.
Fit and quality are right. Unfortunately, I have changed my feet in the last few years and my FIRST ones are a little bit pressure ... ergo a few new ones and which manufacturer has a model in different widths? Daytona, and that's exactly why I'll be driving it for as long as my current one.

Waterproof, protective slippers

I bought my first pair of Roadstars four years ago, they have been used and abused for an average of 14 hours a day, 6 days a week. I have crashed in the boots twice (most recently at 60 mph when a car pulled out from a side road without looking). My feet have never been wet, sweaty or injured in these boots, hence ordering this second pair while my originals are being re-soled. The best, most comfortable and protective boots I have owned in 23 years of riding.
Steve Jones, United Kingdom

...

Prevented worse

I've been driving my Daytona Road Star GTX for 12 years and they're still in good shape. As before, they are waterproof and even longer walking distances have never been a problem with them. Almost a hiking boot ;-).
I think they saved my right foot on my motorcycle vacation in Crete last year. During an emergency stop, the borrowed motorcycle without ABS starts to lurch and hit the asphalt with my right foot so hard that it hurt my outer instep for a few days. I am sure that without the built-in steel insert, it would not have gone so lightly for my foot.
I can recommend Daytona with a clear conscience and my next boot will definitely be a Daytona again. Keep up the good work and best regards,
Thomas Pawelczyk

The best boot ever

Daytona XCR Shorty.
I've been riding this boot for almost 10 years.
I still say today that for me this boot is the best boot ever. Comfortable, robust, safe and the processing absolutely TOP!
It was used on various motorcycles and now, after some abstinence, on a Vespa GTS Notte. Thank you Daytona ;-)
Stefan Möhring

...

Outstanding

Just recieved my boots back from repair at Daytona and they are outstanding, although twenty years old they have come back looking and, more importantly, performing as new.
Such a delight to deal with a company who hold such high standards of craftsmanship and customer service in such high regards. Thank you so much from a very happy customer.

15 years old, permanently rainproof

4 weeks ago I drove about 600 km home from South Tyrol in pouring continuous rain.
Thanks to my 15-year-old Daytonas, I had salt-dry and warm Fussala (for Preussen: feet).
I don't need to say more about the quality. :-)

Special ventilation

I've been riding motorcycles again since the 2000s. Daytona boots throughout ...! Wonderful.
On this year's summer tour through the Black Forest at temperatures of up to 37 degrees (!!!) I had to work out a "special ventilation" for my boots to give the bubble created by extreme heat "air"! So I'm definitely ready for a new daytona boot!
With best regards from a satisfied customer ...

Fit and comfort unmatched, always 100% waterproof

I've been riding a motorcycle since 1978. I've been wearing Daytona boots since 1985.
The first pair was the predecessor of the M-Star GTX. Later came the high Trans Open GTX and currently the Touring Star. You can tell that I can't be dissatisfied with Daytona boots. Why? Because the fit and comfort are unmatched for me and the boots have always been 100% waterproof.
Back then, with my first boots, I drove up with a friend from the Austrian Ötztal towards Kühtai. It was really hot that day. In the middle of it halfway in the mountains a torrent came tumbling down. The machines were just as hot as the drivers. I turned right, the machine turned off, my clothes and helmet down and into the stream - just put my boots in the water. GORGEOUS. A wonderful cool down.
My buddy joked that my feet were now nice and wet. Far from it - feet stayed dry (apart from sweat).
My friend was so convinced at the time that he bought Daytona boots at the very next opportunity. He groaned a bit about the price, but he still drives Daytona today. your

A motorcycle life with Daytona

I've been riding Daytona boots all my motorcycle life, since 1979.
These have already saved me from serious injuries.
For me, Daytona boots are the best boots on the market and Made in Germany, what more could you ask for? :-)
