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.

Stories with daytona®
The boot is dense :-)
On a tour (about 450 km in the rain) my pants failed. The water has flowed slowly over the legs into the boots. Water level at the end about 4-5 cm - in the boot! He left nothing out, absolutely dense in both directions :-)

Daytona and many tours. They are worth it.
After I went on a three-day tour with "wet" feet, I bought my first couple of Daytona boots and use them now more than 15 years! I can not spare a smile when I hear my boys complaining ... Daytona is worth it. Currently they are repairing ... they deserve to be refreshed!

For years, I'm looking for "the" boots to my feet. After trying a lot of boots and not being able to find any suitable ones (my instep seems very high), I went to my Daytona dealer and had my foot measured there to have a pair of boots made to measure. A call to Daytona made it possible, great service. Only the dealer did not want to measure my foot again and so I still have no suitable Daytona. My great desire for 38 years of motorcycling and repeatedly aching feet. A few Daytona that fit well on my feet and allow me the rest of the remaining years, painless motorcycling. Best regards

We have made our tour from Mönchegladbach to Lake Garda. The trip we had to survive in the rain. My boots were "socks wet". Since the brand of biker colleagues is highly recommended to me, I would also like to purchase a pair of Daytona.

Please, please, now a Daytona
When picking up my Ducati Scrambler from Cologne, I got into a storm. It poured in buckets. My clothes holding tight since I have invested enough. However, I saved with my shoes and I got to feel after two minutes, so I had to empty my lake in the shoe under the next highway bridge first. At that moment, I looked nothing more than having a desired Daytona shoe !!! It would definitely have been worth every penny!

Optimally in all situations
On my first Daytona boots I've saved a long time. But now that I have work, I was able to fulfill my dream: Daytona Touring Star GTX boots bought. And was not disappointed. I used to run work shoes with steel sole. That saved me a foot when he got into the spokes at the back. Footpeg bent, foot healed, lesson learned! When I then put on my Daytona for the first time at a major hamburger chain, it soon became clear: They fit like a glove. Almost as perfect as forest Vierteler shoes for walking on the road, so optimal fit Daytona on the moped. In all situations. So not about or expresses little or in the vastness difficult, no, just good. Suitable for Central Europeans. And this has been confirmed fully over the years: you can put them well and feels comfortable in it, even in the heat and on the race track. Mittle r while I traversed the corners, actually I could to try the fabled repair service. So far I have but rather glued flat iron with Pattex Extreme, because you can scuffing your boots in the curve on the tarmac right. That after hours of wearing such a boot is still comfortable, that is rather the exception. These boots are the exception: much better than anything I knew before, they make a sure impression.

Unpacked, dressed, fits.
After 12 years of Daytona boots, it was time to buy new boots (zipper torn, but otherwise still perfect). Motorcycle Accessories (Mike's Biker Shop) came to me again only Daytona in question. Because of my high instep, only the Road Star GTX came into question. Unpacked, dressed, fits. The high price is a measure of the quality.

Super reliable motorcycle boots
After 15 years, unfortunately, the reinforcement on the right shoe dissolves. Perhaps a repair is worthwhile.

I want the extra 6 cm
I am about to buy Daytona Lady Star GTX boots, to be just a liiiiiiittle bit more comfy on my R1200R. I have cidis and they are solid. And I want the extra 6 cm. Now, back to shopping... (Photo is from my first long trip)

For years the daytonas are my best friends in terms of motorcycle comfort. No sweaty feet and comfortable shifting.
Andreas Härtelt, Germany
Over 20 years
I do not know how long I've been driving my Daytona Ladystar, but certainly over 20 years and well over 100 Tkm. Waco has specially adapted my leather suit to the Ladystar. Now the rubber pads break for switching. I finally want new Daytona Ladystar!!!!!!!
Susanne Neue Kienzler, Germany
Without much previous knowledge, I went to a motorcycle shop in search of a motorcycle boot. My search started with the competition - but daytona does not have any, but I realized that later. When I held the first daytona in my hands, I was already thrilled by the soft grip on the leather. When I had the shoe on my foot, I was completely convinced. The fit, the workmanship, the comfortable walking, the safety, for me was now clear: it must be a daytona! I only had one problem. All shoes were black. On the internet, I learned then that the world is also colorful with you. Thanks for that! I ordered my shoe online and in color. Of course, black also fits for my daily journey to work ;)!

Still from D-Mark times!
My RoadStar GTX are already old. Nevertheless, they are still comfortable and still waterproof. I am not a pronounced frequent traveler, but I'm still positively surprised by the longevity. The leather would certainly be good for another 15 years. The soles are now a bit hard and therefore not so handy. That's why I'll probably buy new ones soon. Meanwhile, I always wear the boots under my Dainese station wagon. The RoadStar GTX fit under it. Surely I also find other models with a sufficiently narrow shaft. Too bad that Daytona offers no special boots for "under the station wagon". Also I would wish that more models would be available in colored variants. That would be for me once again a real pluses.

Wonderful boots over 21 years
I have now had these lovely boots for over 21 years and they are still in excellent condition apart from some marine blue paint here and there. My eldest, at the age of 25 months decided to paint them along with my new bedding, carpet, hoover and himself. The carpet, bedding and his clothes were ruined and l didn't hold much hope for my boots. Luckily the majority came off but there remains a few blue spots to remind me and him. He's now going on for 22. My husband thinks l should now relegate them but l don't think so. Wonderful boots. What more can l say!

Never shopped better
The first motorcycle boot (AC PRO) I ever bought lasted up to 12 hours a day and was one of the best buys compared to other motorcycle accessories.
Thomas Waldner, Germany
Again and again
Although unfortunately I'm a care griper ;-) my Daytona Arrow Sport GTX have been serving me faithfully for 4 years. Despite my unilateral hallux valgus mega wearing comfort (thanks Daytona). Would I buy again and again!

Dry in the rain and not sweaty, on sunny days
My Daytona Arrow GTX was already in Greece with me this year in March. This Daytona Arrow GTX Short Boots is simply very good for me. In the north it was still a bit cold at 6 ° C and rain, the next days in the southern Peloponnese we had up to 26 ° C and plenty of sun. My feet were always dry in the rain and not sweaty with lots of sun. :-)

32 colorful biker years ... always with Daytonas
32 years ... pretty much to the point ... 1986 so ... I moved to Berlin to start my studies there ... yes, then the wall was still standing. Surely you are asking yourself, why do you manage to get a motorcycle in a city surrounded by a wall? Basically I give you right ... no nice moped trails and you drove quite fast - figuratively speaking - in front of the wall. Here the explanation is: In my first love because I have as soon as possible made a motorcycle driver's license: Class 4, then made the TÜV testing and a 50-Zündapp scooter the distance between his and my home of legendary 11km uncertain. Well, the love for him is broken, the love for the two-wheeler remained, and when the car driver's license was due, it was for me no question: Class 1 had to be synonymous. It worked out wonderfully in 1982 as well - much to the joy of my father (he drove every one of my two-wheelers following Smiley), but to the chagrin of my mother. She was always worried. That was the reason why I did not buy a motorcycle at first, but a car. Well, something like that, a duck has become, a 2CV. Some call it the attitude of life. All reason when I moved to Berlin and was offered by chance a favorable Z250, was thrown overboard: Auto sold, bought moped ... and then, of course, bought the right equipment to do so. And that included my Daytona boots, which I still ride today. Since then, I have done many beautiful motorcycle tours, longer holidays, but also many weekend tours and day trips. Over time, various motorcycles in my possession have given the honor. A Z400 replaced the Z250, which in turn was replaced by a 125cc Sanyang and a 150cc Guangyang. Bigger motorcycles were not available there at the time. Yes, I have a year lived in Taiwan and could not imagine a time without motorcycle. And since I got a visit from friends, I bought a second, so that we could circle around the island twice. Is worth the trip, at least some places are scenically beautiful! A 650cc Guzzi Florida, a Guzzi Cali II, a 650cc BMW, a Triumph Trident followed, but I had discovered my heart for Italians and now drive a Ducati: 750 monster. I will remain loyal to the Italians as well as the Daytona boots, which have accompanied me for more than 100,000 km since then. The longest tour they have done with me was about 6,000 km long: with the tent, out of Berlin, down to Portugal, so across Europe. The Pyrenees were on their way, as well as terrible hot spells through Spain and on the way back over the recently opened Stilfser Joch by pouring rain in icy cold weather. Proud as Bolle arrived at the bottom and dripping wet and stiff frozen to a girlfriend. Kurz vorher angerufen (aus einer Telefonzelle wohlgemerkt, Handys gab es noch nicht Zwinkerndes Smiley). Sie hatte schon die Badewanne eingelassen und mir trockenes Zeug rausgelegt. What was I grateful ... and then back to Berlin. Curves scratched without end - 32 years ... 32 years with always the same boots ... which are slowly getting into deserved retirement. And who asks himself now, how can the ever drive curves, where she should have learned that in Berlin, that said: motorway junctions are not bad for practicing. And of course the many tours to moped rides, to Italy and wherever. Main thing nice route. P.S .: For the sake of honesty, however, I also have to confess: the Daytonas had a baby break for 2 years...

230 kilograms to a square centimeter
Hello, I had on my first major tour (2016 Allgäu) an unfortunate crash on Riedbergpass. I was not fast, not 40 km / h, but the front wheel was me in a moment of shock braking away and I came to case. Unfortunately, the machine (Kawasaki KLV 1000) fell so stupidly on my left leg that the gearshift punctiform (see photo) has destroyed my ankle. The pressure was so strong that the shift lever was broken off. It was certainly not my almost new Daytona Touring Star GTX boots, but I sold them. Meanwhile, I am angry about this hasty action. The shoe is mega-comfortable and super processed. It was just bad luck, 230 kg punctiform on a square centimeter would have made other shoes to create. Maybe I'm lucky and win here. I would be very happy. Greeting
Matthias Otterbein, Germany
You have to have them
As much as my husband likes his Daytona and we have the same shoe size, I would like to have my own Daytona ;o)
