An instance... a living legend... indestructible... the best...
The readers of MOTORRAD have voted the Daytona brand "Best Brand" for the 15th year in a row.
The editorial staff of MOTORRAD states: "Once Daytona, always Daytona. When Helmut Frey walks through the paddock with a shoebox, it's not just anybody, but an instance. Together with his brother Reinhard, he is a living legend among boot manufacturers. Their creations are indestructible on the race track as well as in everyday use. They have always focused on boots for motorcyclists, nothing else. That's why they have the best. In this respect, the vote could not be any different for 15 years now ..."

84. Award for daytona®: Test winner: AC Dry GTX
The magazine MOTORRAD has tested 13 short sheep boots. To find out if comfort and protection can be combined. The Daytona AC Dry GTX has been awarded as test winner: "The Daytona AC Dry is heavier than the competition – that's the only point of criticism. In practice, this is not at all noticeable, it even feels rather light. The most expensive boot in our test is very close to "perfect".

Opinions and contest
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.
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
When good things happen to you...
Frank Wintzen from Schwalmtal was so enthusiastic about the fact that his old boots, used on countless trips, came back from the "inspection" "almost as new" that he published a little story about it:
Tried and tested ... and graded with a smooth 1
An editor of the magazine "ps sport motorrad magazin" tried out the Daytona Strive GTX: "This boot has grown close to our hearts. Of course, he is not the safety giant like the racing athlete Evo from Daytona. But the great, because sporty everyday boot is also suitable for the fast tour on the country road and has a waterproof Gortetex membrane that really works. After almost two years in continuous use, the Strive shows no signs of fatigue - neither on the zipper, nor on the leather or sole. "And he can still shine in any rain." The editorial staff evaluates according to the school grading system and has awarded a 1.

Daytona Are The Daddies At Making Motorcycle Boots
The FAST BIKES MAGAZINE writes:
"Simply put, Daytona are the daddies at making motorcycle boots. They're not distracted by manufacturing other kit, so are devotet to bringing you the ultimate in safety. Many racers sacrifice paid contracts just to have Daytona's top-quality product. Usually top end on price but clearly top-end in results, too. Warming your tootsies from the kings of safety are the new Road Stars - not the sexiest jiving boots, but packed full of protection and assurance with their patented inner/outer booties."

Daytona Is The Ferrari Of The Boot World
And another report of the FAST BIKES MAGAZINE:
"You need top-to-toe coverage when you're out and about on a bike, and nothing protects the toes better than this lot. An often heard quote is that if racers weren't paid to wear boots, they'd all wear Daytona. And that isn't so far from the truth, going by what we've been told about on facebook by countless racers over the years.
All the racers that do wear them, ususally have to pay for the privilege. Daytona is the Ferrari of the boot world in this case, and it's a mantle well deserved. The Security Evo III is the ultimate expression of this safety-shell-boot-philosophy."

Higher Stand. Better support.
daytona® has developed special motorcycle boots for smaller female and male bikers. A combination of an internal heel elevation and a higher sole makes these boots 6 cm "bigger". With the higher stand you reach the ground easier when stopping, you stand more secure and you can support the motorcycle better.
Manual work. Worth each cent.
How a daytona® boot evolves from around 120 individual parts.
If you have all the components of one of our motorcycle boots in front of you, it almost looks like an insoluble puzzle. But our 130 specialists in the production know exactly what belongs together and how. After 80 working steps they have processed everything into a new genuine daytona® motorcycle boot. One of about 70,000 pairs of motorcycle boots, that we deliver every year.
The new video from the production shows many of the steps that are necessary to make motorcycle boots with maximum safety, perfect fit and long durability.
