Comfortable even while walking

I wear Daytona boots AC4 for a few years and am very satisfied. With them you can still make hiking tours, very comfortable. Since I now drive a Piaggio scooter after 55 years of motorcycling, these short boots are ideal for a city stroll.

Stories with daytona®

Simply better than the others

Our tour to the Bavarian Forest in August 2023. After 5 hours of riding the motorcycle in the pouring rain, the Daytona Journey proved itself, among other things, with its absolute tightness through the incorporated Goretex membrane. Also during subsequent smaller excursions, the Daytona Journey could again clearly set itself apart from my previously worn motorcycle boots by its pleasant wearing comfort.

Always warm, dry and safe

Purchased the custom (because of the too high instep and the too gaudy calves) Travel Star GTX in 2019 for the tour to the North Cape: The feet on the whole tour always warm and always stayed dry, no matter how heavy the rain was. With the trick garbage bag over the dry stockings pull and then in the wet boots I could help others, I was unnecessarily well prepared. On all subsequent tours: the boots always good to wear, with all the safety and strength always comfortable on the foot, pleasant in all situations. In 2022 then on a beautiful tour in the southern Palatinate I wake up and lie in the ditch in the creek. The FJR to my right, the fork and a suitcase to my left. Six ribs and collarbone through, the shoulder dislocated. Feet warm, whole and dry in boots. Found with good luck; cut out of clothes in ambulance. The cut things came with me to the hospital, the wonderful boots were unfortunately lost....

Thank you for this super quality

I had a motorbike accident in Sardinia and, thanks to my Daytona boots, only fractured my lower leg and fibula. Without these good boots my foot would have been gone. Thanks to Daytona for this super good quality

Around 30 years

The daytona boot from the 90s is actually still without damage. But it's "only" made of leather and therefore simply no longer suitable for riding in the rain. I will probably have to buy a new one :-)

daytona

Like on the first day

What can I say, once a Daytona, always a Daytona, I've been riding the Roadstar GTX and a shorty for 5 years, still as nice and comfortable as on the first day.

daytona

Daytona, nothing else

I have been a touring rider for 11 years now and have only had Daytona boots. So also my wife. This shot was taken on 24.07.2023 shortly before Kals am Großglockner (district of Lienz in East Tyrol).

Faithful, reliable companions over hill and dale, on land and "in the water".

I bought second-hand JOURNEY GTX 13 years ago -- which means they already had a few years under their belt. In the meantime, we have ridden many thousands of kilometres a year through a wide variety of countries near and far. The comfortable fit makes it possible to get off the bike and go sightseeing without changing shoes, or to go up a mountain quickly. It doesn't matter if the sun is beating down or if it has been raining for hours, if you have to go through gravel, sand or a few snowfields, or if you want to explore a cave - this wonderful shoe has even withstood spontaneous visits to dance clubs and all-nighters! Ideal for me as a woman, you always look good in them too. I think I could even fall asleep in it without it disturbing my sleep - because you hardly feel this shoe on your foot due to the good fit ; )) ABSOLUTELY GREAT !!! Now they are a bit tired from the heavy use and I will buy new ones for trips in extreme weather, but I will not part with them.

daytona

Only recommended

Dear Daytona team, in over 20 years and many thousands of kilometres in wind and weather, the Road Star GTX has always been a reliable, comfortable and faithful companion for me. Now I have treated myself to a new motorbike boot for my next tours and have decided on a Road Star GTX again. It has served me very well all these years and even saved me from worse injuries in two accidents. Thanks to you, I can recommend your boots with a clear conscience.

Stylish and safe on the road with daytona

Only to recommend

After many miles on the track and a few falls, my feet still enjoy the best health despite everything, thanks to optimal protection by my Daytona's. Even in my work as an instructor I wear nothing else. So whenever the subject of new boots comes up, I recommend going back to Daytona's.

daytona

Nothing compares to the fit and feel of the Daytona’s

For many years I've happily been using my trusty Daytona Roadstar GTX boots for commuting to my work as an Aircraft Engineer and the occasionally road trip. No matter if its freezing cold, piping hot, dry or wet, my boots are always comfortable and a pleasure to wear! I’ve tried on many boots but nothing compares to the fit and feel of the Daytona’s. The only downside for me personally is the hot-dip galvanized steel inlay due to the airport security…but I can live with that. Beside that it's a perfect boot that lasts for years! Kind regards, Ollie from the Netherlands

daytona

Nothing more than daytona

I have been riding Daytona for 15 years. My first boot was a Trans Open GTX, but after 8 years it was worn out and less comfortable than its successor, the Big Travel GTX. As written, I have been loyal to the brand for 15 years and the boot is still watertight even after several (sometimes torrential) downpours. I am happy and don't ride anything else.

20 years, 20 motorbikes, 1 boot

Dear Daytona employees, after 20 years and plus 20 motorcycles later, I had to say goodbye to my boots. After thousands of hours and kilometers plus some heavy groundwork and gardening I had to throw them away. These boots are made for... everything? Wanted to share this with you. Greets, Juan van Vessem, The Netherlands

Faithful and dry

My Daytona Big Travel GTX have been with me for 9 years. That's 100,000 km of dry feet!

Everything is fine

Since the first day with Daytona boots! Well ridden and in every respect!

Hello

In the picture you can see my 21-year-old daughter, yesterday at the curve training in Minden. She was wearing the Daytona boots and was totally thrilled with the shoes because she can support herself better and get her feet on the ground. She has had her driving licence since September. 2022 the driving licence. As she is a biology student, she has to look at how and when to spend money on motorbike stuff. We supported her to buy the motorbike ... she loves riding motorbikes ... would be great if she ended up in the lottery pot. Thank you

daytona

Great product

I treated myself to the Security Evo G3 because the sole of three other boots before it had given up (rubber + sole itself). Feels really sturdy and can be adjusted all around as you need it. Great product ... from Bavaria ;-)

daytona

No alternative to Daytona

I proudly explained to my boss that I had now also bought a Harley Davidson. When he asked, I had to admit that I had not thought about motorbike shoes. He then explained to me that I would obviously attach importance to quality in the helmet, the communication system, the jacket and the trousers and then he would recommend Daytona motorbike shoes to me because there would be no alternative. He told me about his good experiences and I decided to buy their product.

Simply great

Very satisfied

I do not even know how long my Daytona motorcycle boots accompany me and clothe. It must be almost 20 years. Nevertheless, I still remember that I felt so comfortable directly at the fitting in the boots that others were out of the question. To this day, I am very happy with my decision.

daytona

What a hammer - my first thought when I put on the shoe.

Actually, I was just looking for a new jacket and landed at some point at POLO in Wuppertal. Actually, several times, because I could not decide on a particular jacket. And as luck would have it, I was surprised between the visits times so right by the rain. Clothes tight, shoes wet, really wet. Is perhaps because they have been worn for 4 years and the price level was in the mid-range. The two zippers I had learned to love and so I asked when I bought my jacket, whether POLO can also offer shoes with two zippers. I was immediately shown the Daytona Boots Road Star. Initially put off by the price, I nevertheless tried them on. It was "love" from the first moment. Fits, is comfortable, does not press and should be durable. So still read up a bit in the store, bought and left on. From the first ride away just a great feeling. I'm glad I decided to buy.

daytona

Not to be topped, unbeatable, recommended

I have been a driving instructor for 20 years and bought cheap at the beginning, for 15 years I have been a Daytona addict. Quality, workmanship, service, there is no shoe manufacturer that can top this. I recommend every two-wheeler rider to buy Daytonas, preferably waterproof ones. That's not just a word with Daytona, it's a promise. Where other manufacturers call it that and then, when asked, rather meekly admit that they are just water-repellent or splash-proof, here the name is a promise. I have been holding training sessions for motorcycles for 20 years, and when I talk to them, it always turns out that Daytona is unbeatable. My recommendation: Daytona again and again. Thanks

daytona

I thought I didn't need a Daytona. Wrong thought.

I have yet to Daytona experience, because until now I thought that most motorcycle boots are equally good. Unfortunately, I had to be taught otherwise ... I had a fall and broke the metatarsal of the little toe. Am now convinced that I would not have suffered this fracture with a better (eg a Daytona) boots. Therefore, I have now bought a Tourer (Road Star) - but a picture does not yet exist - and would be extremely happy about a Shorty.

daytona

Nothing presses, nothing pinches, driving is fun

I had these Daytona boots custom made myself at Daytona in late 2022. What a difference from the products off the shelf. Nothing presses, nothing pinches and the zipper closes without effort. This makes driving on the race track fun again. Many thanks to Daytona.

daytona

Always with Daytona

That was in 2006 at the "slurry pump meeting". Father and son, logically with Daytonas.

daytona

Well protected with Daytona

I have the racing boot with the carbon inner shoe. This has already saved me once from a serious injury. I came during a fall on the race track with the foot in the rim behind. I think with almost any other shoe I would have suffered serious injuries. With that of the Daytona nothing. In addition, I had the Daytona Arrow Sport GTX now 10 years, an absolutely awesome half boot. Unfortunately also broken after a fall, so that a repair is no longer worthwhile. Since I have very thick calves, I always have difficulty fitting motorcycle boots to get.

daytona

Satisfied at all times

The picture was taken on the tour "Grandes Alpes" with lighter Daytona boots. On the return trip through Switzerland, it rained and the boots have proven excellent that they are waterproof! Since my wife (She rides the red GS) and I want to be in the future even more often on longer tours, I have treated me a few days ago additionally a pair of "Travel Star GTX" and assume that I will also be satisfied with these boots at any time!

daytona

I thank my guardian angel and the people of Daytona

On vacation in Greece, I was on the road with a borrowed, not very familiar and also a little too heavy machine. In the process, I slipped off the path and grazed along a wall. Without those perfect boots, I would quite likely have suffered injuries and pain to my legs. Maybe bruises as well. I thank my guardian angel and the folks at Daytona who design good protective gear. This left me with the courage to get back on the bike because I experienced that things can end smoothly. Even more, I could laugh heartily when the shock subsided and I saw that neither I nor the machine had suffered any damage.

Here's to another 10 years of Daytona

For 10 years I now drive the Daytona Road Star GTX. Since I am off-road touring now increasingly on the road I have since short changed to the Trans Open GTX boots. On another 10 years with Daytona. The picture was taken on the Romania tour 2020. 60% offroad and here I realized that I needed an offroad boot.

The best I've ever had.

My Daytona Burdits I have since 2017 and the have 90,000 km on the shoe and have come around in all of Europe. In Tuscany flooded in torrential rain, the boots full of water. Poured out and dried overnight in the hotel with the hair dryer. Perfectly dry the next day. These boots are the best I've ever had. They have never let me down. And you can ride horses with them too . :):):)

After 20 years still waterproof and perfect

Dear Daytona team, After over 20 years of riding the Evo Sports GTX - always the same pair - I recently treated myself to an upgrade to the Security Evo. I'm thrilled with how well the Evo Sports, despite not receiving any maintenance - has held up over the years. It is still waterproof, fits perfectly, and has only visual flaws. Velcro and zippers are all intact, sliders in place, basically it wouldn't have needed new boots at all. I wrote a short text about it on my blog www.motorprosa.com. See https://www.motorprosa.com/neue-stiefel-daytona-security-evo-g3/ Excited to see what I will experience with the new boots over the next 20 (or more?) years. Congratulations on your first-class products, and many greetings from South Tyrol! Jürgen

With the different widths I have found the perfect size for me

In 1991 I bought a SR 500. It was my first new motorcycle that I afforded. Along with it came a pair of new boots from Daytona. In the three decades I have ridden a wide variety of machines and covered a lot of miles in Europe and the USA. Only the boots have remained the same. But now I'm going into the new season with brand new "Road Star GTX". Super that you offer them in different widths. So I have found the perfect size for me quickly. The photo should have been taken in 2017 on the way to the Susten Pass.

Nothing but Daytona, since 1988

I have been riding motorcycles since 1988 and have not had boots from any other manufacturer on my feet. Daytona is one of the few manufacturers that make motorcycle boots in size 50.

The best boots I have ever come across

I do not even know how long I have the already, in any case so long that these are no longer manufactured. But there is now the successor! Yes, my story began on 27.Dec '21: Oops, now I fell down and my ankle was broken. The full program was announced, surgery, pain and of course much, much swelling ☹ But my only thought was my moped and my associated Daytonas. Hopefully they will fit, hopefully my foot will go back in. And indeed 8 weeks after the surgery.... schwubdich... Bärbel in the basement and tried. I took several photos during this time but : "Hochlagern, you said". found the funniest! : ) Long story short, the fact is: the Daytona are the best boots that I have ever run across for motorcycling!!! For driving Ideal and when drinking coffee like Dappn (slippers). Please keep up the good work!!! With kind regards Bärbel

daytona

I love them

Something always soaks through: Suit, gloves, cell phone - but the Daytona shoes always keep tight! I love them. Daytona was recommended to me at the time as the best brand for motorcyclists in the store. Now I'm looking at shoes for the supersport: it turns out, Daytona is again the recommendation of all. Only thing I do not understand: why are there no GTX inner shoes for the best 2 shoes? Wanted to buy me the Security G3, now it will probably "only" a Voltex GTX.

daytona

Thank you for the M-Star GTX

In May 2022 I let my son persuade me to buy a R 1200 GS, it was already lowered, but in Slovenia I laid under it in a parking lot. It was missing 2 cm on the gravel parking lot to avoid this. Due to this unpleasant event I had two options, sell vehicle or Daytona! I decided to test M-Star GTX. The test resulted, keep motorcycle and drive this vehicle only with these boots. Have since then a super sense of security on a super motorcycle. Thanks to Daytona for this opportunity.

daytona

We are super satisfied with the motorcycle boots

They offer the perfect combination of protection, comfort and style. The material is very high quality and durable. The boots are also waterproof, which means that we stay dry even when riding in the rain. Another big plus is the sole of the boots. It is slip resistant and provides good traction on wet or slippery surfaces. This is very important since we often ride on different road conditions. Motorcycle boots are one of the most important pieces of equipment for every enthusiastic biker, for every biker, so they must be perfect! And that is the case with daytona.

100,000 km, and still waterproof

Once Daytona, just more Daytona.

No matter how many motorcycle boots I still need in the life, it will be guaranteed DAYTONAs

After I had bought new Travel Star GTX boots, I have it but not brought over the heart to dispose of the old. These were me after 21 years and almost 90,000 km (including 11,500 very coarse km in Central America) but grown very close to my heart and actually still quite good - only some seams had opened. Did they then but sent to Eggenfelden for repair and got them back after a few days repaired at a very fair price and on the finest gewienert again. Do not look like new, but still after all these years very respectable and technically fully intact. I am thrilled!

daytona

Very satisfied

Hello Daytona Team, I have been riding motorcycles for about 35 years. My first boots were from Daytona. They lasted about 12 years. At that time, however, I did not know that they can be restored with you. After a very short detour to another manufacturer with, which I had no joy, I bought some again. These were provided after about 10 years by you with a new sole. With those I am still very satisfied on the road. Thank you

daytona

Best Service Ever

Dear Daytona team, so about quality, workmanship and safety has already been written so much, better I thought, it no longer goes. But now you have surpassed everything that has gone before. I had sent last week because of the new soling of my Spirit GTX 2 e-mails and got an immediate response with 3 possible solings. On Monday evening I sent the boots packed via DHL, on Thursday, same week, I get the info, the boots are on the way to me ... and today, Friday, same week the package arrived, can you do magic?, YES . Best Service Ever, that toppt not even the local cobbler and the result conjures a big smile on my face. Great praise and many thanks for it, I think must also necessarily times be said and written, because you can no longer find so.

daytona

The boots leave a good impression even on the Baltic Sea beach

What a super service

After 20 years of Roadstar GTX my boots were a bit affected. Have you sent last week for repair. After a week you came back and look like new. Is this a super service. Have had the shift reinforcements redone. Best service here. THANKS

Fits like a second skin

Am now 42 years on the road with the two-wheeler, bought me 3 years ago my third pair of Daytona. Do not want anything else. And yes, I'm coming soon in Eggenfelden by. Since I bring my second pair to resole. Because Daytona fits like a second skin.

daytona

35 years old

My Daytonas are now about 35 years old. In addition in red. I think they don't exist like that anymore. Unfortunately, the leather is no longer so good. That's why I don't wear them anymore. But I do not give them away.

Many beautiful tours with Daytona

With Daytona motorcycle boots we have already experienced many beautiful tours with our bikes. They are a durable companion in any motorcycle situation.
