The current winner of the month:

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.

The right boot for 17 years

Always on the move in Daytona boots, even when sightseeing here in Pula in Istria, at 34°C. Daytona Burdit GTX, the right boot for me since 2007

If you buy Daytona, you don't have to buy twice

Dear Daytona team, after more than 100,000 km, I treated my thirty-year-old TOURSTAR GTX to new soles for its anniversary. As always with Daytona (the shift reinforcements had already been replaced once before), the process was quick and smooth in less than two weeks, despite a long national holiday weekend! The boots came back like new. In general, I can say that I have never got my feet wet, the boots are comfortable, robust, stable and durable with sporadic care. If you buy cheap, you buy at least (!) twice. I can recommend Daytona with a clear conscience, 5 out of 5 stars and another 5 for the service! Marc S.

Once Daytona, always Daytona

Hello dear Daytona team, a good boot is almost more important than a good bike, because even a bad bike will get me to my destination, but a good boot will get me there dry. That's why our Daytona is always with us on every tour, whether near or far. Me and my girlfriend wouldn't want to be without them, so once a Daytona, always a Daytona. Greetings Martin

I love them

I am relatively short and now have the second model of Daytona boots with heel elevation. What can I say ... I love them! They give me a lot of security when stopping, as I can reach the ground better. This means I don't have to lower the bike. I also really like the look of them. Thank you!

Best grip, long-lasting

In mid-March, we set off on a 10-country Balkan tour, 6,500km through wild landscapes and regularly found that the grip of our Daytona boots was at least as important as the grip of the tires. Incidentally, my previous Daytona has already been in use for 21 years, has been resoled twice and still serves me as a fair-weather summer boot :-)

25 years - they were already sustainable when the word didn't even exist yet

After more than 25 years, it's time for new boots! I bought my Daytona boots over 25 years ago and have enjoyed many, many accident-free kilometers in all weathers. Whether in snowstorms in the Alps, 38°C in the Spanish shade or on dusty gravel roads in Montenegro, the Daytona has always brought my feet home dry and blister-free. But now it's time for new Daytona boots. The leather is still as good as new thanks to proper care, but the textile materials are now starting to disintegrate. I will probably put my old boots in the display case. Many thanks to the Daytona team for the quality product and a product that was already “sustainable” when the word didn't even exist! Best regards Michael

Comfortable and dry

Hello, I got into motorcycle touring in my 50s and bought the Daytona Road Star GTX in the fall of 2023. On 13,000 km through France, the Pyrenees, northern Spain, Portugal, Andalusia and Extremadura, they were super comfortable and dry. The photo was taken at a campsite in the Sierra Nevada. Best regards Melanie

Dry feet thanks to Daytona

My Touring Star GTX have been with me on all my trips and excursions for a few years now. Here we were suddenly caught in the rain just before the Tauern Tunnel. Thanks to my Daytonas and the umbrella, I got through my vacation dry.

Daytona: top

Hey, I ride a GTX, super satisfied, light and comfortable.

Thank you for the good German craftsmanship

I did my class A 17 years ago and bought a pair of Daytona boots. After 60,000 km the soles were worn through. I sent the boots to FREY and within a week I got them back with a new sole. At a super fair price. Thanks for that and my recommendation. Biker buys Daytona boots. There is still good German craftsmanship. Thank you for that.

daytona

Thanks Daytona

Crash on gravel with Africa Twin on the right side, was jammed under the main stand, leather pants were perforated, Daytonas only suffered slight visual damage.

Update: The repair service is also great.

I dropped the boots off at my local Louis store last Tuesday. Yesterday (Monday!) I received a text message: the boots can be picked up. That took less than a week with return shipping, and that in the middle of the season. Let someone copy that... The boots are like new again, thank you very much for the super service!

They are superbly made and last forever

I got my first Daytonas (Voyager Goretex) in 1992, which I rode until 2008, when the switch guard came loose. At the time, I didn't know that this could be repaired. As a replacement, I got a pair of Touring Star GTXs, which made it all the way to India with me. They got new soles a few years ago, and now the shift guard has also come loose. Since yesterday, they have been on their way to Eggenfelden for repair. I've now bought another pair of VXR 16 Goretex, as I need something on my feet until the repair is finished... All the boots are superbly made and will last forever (I use the ones from 1992 for gardening, they haven't seen any maintenance since 2008 and are still waterproof today). The boots are also great for walking around in. So - unreserved recommendation, they really are worth every cent!

I just love these boots

I've been riding motorcycles for over 20 years now, starting with a 125cc bike and then switching to a Kawasaki GPZ 500s when I was 19. I soon realized that I needed better clothing and especially shoes. I tried on the Daytona Bandit xcr-gtx by chance at my trusted dealer and they felt fantastic. They were comfortable, looked great and were just right for me. I rode them very happily for a long time and smiled at everyone who told me that their feet hurt when they were on the road without a bike and stretched their legs. A few years passed and when I became a mother for the first time, I hung up my motorcycle clothing and put my boots to one side. I gave away and sold some of my motorcycle clothing after that, but I never wanted to give up my boots. After almost 10 years off the bike, the moment came and I had a bike again and my fingers were burning to ride again. My clothes were a bit tighter but I was fine to start with. I looked for my boots but unfortunately I couldn't find them. I thought I might have given them away after all. I bought a pair of half boots, but after just 2 weeks I realized how spoiled I was from before. I looked for new boots but nothing fitted or was comfortable or I didn't like the look. I had already made friends with the idea that I probably wouldn't be able to find boots that were within my budget. But then came the moment when my son came out of the cellar with a pair of strange boots, they were tarnished and he wanted to put them away. But I was really happy because they were my old Daytonas. I cleaned them, put some care on them and got them ready to go. And what can I say, it's the same feeling as before. They are absolutely comfortable, still waterproof and look timeless. I just love these boots.

Nothing else gets on my feet

My experiences range from extended vacations to Sardinia, Croatia, Italy, etc. ... in the heat as well as in the heaviest rain showers etc. ... always dry feet and no injuries to the feet in a rather violent accident. All with Daytona boots, of course!

Year-round driver, happy all round since 2007

2007, tour to South Tyrol, didn't want to spend so much money on boots, so I bought cheap ones. They were supposed to be waterproof. Unfortunately, that was a mistake. After the tour I immediately went to the dealer and bought the Daytonas (picture attached). I've been riding them since 2007 and am completely happy. They are also recommended in winter with 2 pairs of socks. I ride all year round. Today, after 3 hours of riding in the rain, I was shocked to find that my right sock was wet. As I can't order just one new boot, I immediately ordered a new pair. (no complaints, laugh, they have lasted well). I also cleaned them from time to time. Super quality, I can recommend them without reservation. I ride an Africa Twin. Greetings Robert

Best boots

In my opinion, Daytona is the best boot for this hobby. Comfort, durability and protection are the top priorities and they also look great. Mine have now been in use for 21 years and have seen a lot of countries and are still wearable. They have had no maintenance. :) I would always buy a Daytona.

To list all Daytona experiences there is not enough space here.

I have only driven Daytona shoes for years (AC4WD and Urban Master 2) and I had the best Daytona experiences in my almost 6 years as a Polo employee. In the beginning I sold the AC 4 WD very often until it was no longer offered in the program. The very positive and happy customer feedback always filled me with pride. I still advise my former regular customers on Daytona shoes today. I would be delighted if I could win this boot in size 41 to round off my Daytona portfolio. Happy Easter to you all. With kind regards Michael.

Customer service couldn't be better

One shoe repair "free of charge", shoes handed in to Louis Lübeck on vacation, quickly repaired at Daytona. Unfortunately, I was already back home in Sauerland, so Louis sent the shoes home to me free of charge. Customer service and customer loyalty couldn't be better. My new AC Classics GTX have just been delivered.

A quick run around the corner with Daytona

After a few Daytona Trans Open races, I was looking for a more relaxed shoe to go with my jeans and found the AC Classics GTX. A top boot that can also be used for a quick run around the corner!

Daytona only, and I have never regretted it

I have 2 pairs of Daytona boots. 1 pair of short-shaft boots that have accompanied me for many years, and 1 pair I had made for me by Daytona. I have never regretted wearing these boots. I'm now 73 years old and my Honda CBR 1000 RR SC29 doesn't want to retire yet. But I could make good use of the shorty, because they are the same ones I've had for years.

Changing bikes – Daytona stays

I've already covered almost 200,000 kilometres on my Daytona XCR. Switched from a BMW 1150 RT to a 1200GS ATV: My XCR is here to stay! I'm also standing safely over the "abyss"! Look for the Daytona XCR in the picture!

I've only worn Daytona boots for more than 40 years

... and have always been very satisfied. Great fit, still waterproof even after 10 years of use and 60,000 km and you can even hike longer distances comfortably with them. Absolutely recommended.

Satisfied for many years!

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

34 years

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

42 years

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!!!!

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

Outstanding quality

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!
