Frey daytona® stories
Thanks to you for producing something like this
Hello Daytona Team, I own their great shoes since 2006, Road Star GTX. I got the shoes 2 days before my first alpine tour. I thought, hopefully that works fine. After 20 days back home I realized that I did not notice anything about my new shoe. Even walking with this shoe on walks and sightseeing was just great. Now the shoe is about 13 years old and still top and above all waterproof. Unfortunately, he takes advantage of the sole at the back something. Since I usually can not afford such a high-quality shoe, I hope he still holds something. A great shoe, super properties. Thanks to you for producing something like this. Sincerely, Fridolin Berkeley, Germany
For the next 33 years
Dear Daytona Team, I bought my first Daytona boots in 1985, blue-white-red, to match a combo by Dainese (Anton Mang). Apart from wear on the outer edges and then after years of inner sole, these boots have accompanied me tight on many kilometers. Eventually, you were then transferred to the Museum of station wagons have become too narrow and bought a new pair. These accompany me today (along with other Daytonas) regularly on the rides. It's a good feeling to be on the road with good shoes. For the next 33 years with boots from Daytona. Jerry Esters, Germany
Only a few scratches remain as a reminder
Super Highster on the track - the thought in any case the observers. I remained unhurt myself, not least thanks to Daytona EVO G3! Only a few scratches in the leather that remain as a reminder and warning. Günter Domig, Germany
From 0 to 39, for 17 years
Love Daytona team, my first Daytona Boots (Trans Open GTX) I acquired in 2000 at the INTERMOT in Munich. In less than 17 years I drove all over Europe with these unique boots nearly 75,000 kilometers. The boots go easily from just above 0 degrees to 39 degrees and two of falls - respectively on the ankle - would be guaranteed have been different with simpler boots. Today I hold my new pair Trans Open GTX in my hands and I am as excited about the boots as 17 years ago. The exact processing and the high quality are directly tangible and justify the high price in my opinion. I very much hope that my new Trans Open GTX will take me safely over the roads and roads of Europe for at least another 17 years. Greetings from the Erzgebirge of Thomas Fischer P.S.: The picture was taken in 2013 on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road
I do not want to think about how my leg would have looked without daytona.
In July 2014 I suffered a heavy departure with my Honda VTR 1000. Thanks to my Daytona Trans Open GTX I had no further injuries on the left leg except very strong bruises. I do not want to think about how my leg would have looked without the boot. I bought the same boots again, because in my opinion there is no better one!!
I wear Daytonas ... they put it away easily
I bought an old travel enduro in 2010. Various modifications have also included the footpegs. Everyone has prophesied to me: That shaves your soles through.
2 years ago I became a proud owner of an old KLV, again various alterations and again rough Enduro footpegs. Same tenor as before: The soles !! ... Pfft. I wear Daytonas ... they put it away easily. So far no visible wear and good grip on the notches ..best.
Greetings Marcus Berndt from Vöhringen
Here is the expression of German workmanship still justified!
On 2.8.2000 I allowed my feet the Daytona Modul GTX (original document and box are still available ;-). At that time, I overpowered 379 DM, a proud price, but I never regretted it.
They accompanied me on many tours, also in the humid north and in the hot and sunny south. They never let my feet down. In the early years, the GTX came regularly to the fresh air, during the offspring they have been little bit neglected, but slowly they are used more often again. Two years ago, the shift gains broke and I recently asked Daytona if they could fix that. Within a short time I got a reply mail from Ms. Frey (Daytona) that the switching reinforcements can be replaced for about 53 €. Last Saturday on 4.11.2017 I packed the boots and took them to the post office. And hold on now! Yesterday on Friday the 10.11.2017 came a package from Daytona and my GTX look almost like the first day !!!
Madness! Here is the expression of German workmanship still justified! Here can some "model companies" learn a lot. Many thanks to the Daytona team for the great work! Please keep doing your job just like this - as a customer and big drum I remain loyal to you.
Greeting from Jörg Bechtold
The boot is a force!
We, two couples are on the first day of vacation determined, we have decided to use the same boots. In August-September we went to Portugal for three weeks. Arrival and return via Switzerland, France and Spain, around 6,000km. The boot is a force! A lightweight shoe, pleasant in the warmth and ideal for sightseeing. In warm and hot weather, we don´t need to do the wet test. One more recomemendation for a greet boot.
Paul Boillat from Switzerland.
Still in use.
Another season with dry feet. Model Daytona Frey. Should be one of the first ever. Was adopted by the uncle and are driven :-)
(Editor's note: The model is called "Hit", it was made in this version from 1985 to 1992. So the boot could be on the way for over 30 years ...) Jörg Loucky, Germany
In any case, a good choice.
My Daytona boots are not only a good companion on wonderful tours, whether in the rain or the sun. They are also an excellent companion for such actions. In any case, definitely recommended.
Norbert Rudolph, Germany
My faithful companion ...
... on many European racetracks and now and then in the cafe around the corner.

At daytona service and quality is a top priority
Germany, a service desert? At Frey daytona by no means! I am a diabetic and must wear orthopedic shoes. In my old motorcycle boots it was not possible to continue driving. I heard there is the possibility at daytona to make motorcycle boots custom-made. Despite the company holidays at daytona, Mr. Frey has allowed me to come to him on my holiday trip to the south and measure my feet and hand over the inserts made by my orthopedic technician. In the last week it was so far. The boots were sent home. I immediately went to my doctor and asked him for his opinion. He immediately gave me the green light and the first tour with safe shoes could be driven. Thanks again to Mr. Frey and the whole team of daytona. I can recommend to everyone, in case of problems with the feet turn to daytona, there is service and quality capital. MfG André Hanneken, Germany
For me this is always the first choice!
Wow, what great boots! I drive since 1979 motorcycle and was always satisfied with the Daytona boots. This year, I drove the Grand Tour de Alpes from Lake Geneva to Monaco. Subsequently to the Grand Canyon de Verdon. My feet were always well protected thanks to Daytona. These are by far the best boots - comfortable and safe! Ralf Philipp, Germany
Indestructible. A purchase I have never regretted.
I have since 1985 the motorcycle driving license. At that time it was not so far away with proper motorcycle clothing. A solid jacket, jeans and possibly springer boots from the BW stock of Papa. But when I made my dream of owning my own machine after 25 years, I was looking for a better shoe selection than a sprinkling boot after a bad experience with air passengers. Get a lot of recommendations, but ultimately always out running on a brand: DAYTONA. So I looked around and got my first pair of DAYTONAS. And still hold, are comfortable, still up to date and simply indestructible. Even with low maintenance they keep their promises, and after a short cleaning orgy they look out again as new. A purchase that I, unlike many other purchases for safe motorcycling, did not regret. Greeting Marcus Berndt, Germany
Thanks for the (in my opinion) the world's best motorcycle shoe product!
Hello Daytona Team, 05/2013 my wife and I have been with very well-known motorcyclists of history in the Pyrenees. We had a very eventful trip and the Pyrenees were we to "feet". On Saturday, 06/08/2013, the day after our trip home to 18: 30h, I have suffered an engine failure a polytrauma with several heavy injuries. Through the good protective clothing (gloves, leather suit, helmet and boots daytona XCR) the worst was prevented. Apart from a broken toe I fortunately had my feet protected and the Daytona Spirit XCR boots were the only thing left to me, because the other protective clothing was cut up or so damaged that they had to be disposed of. Today I love my boots and can again take part in road traffic. Thanks for the (in my opinion) world's best motorcycle shoe product! Keep it up!
Reiner Vopel, Germany
Waterproof, super-processed and protection from serious injuries
I've been riding motorcycles for over 28 years, and always with protective gear and boots. Your boots are a weight that is waterproof, super-processed and protect you from serious injuries.
hat I can personally judge since I had a self-inflicted motorcycle accident on 18.09.2017 in Sardinia and my boots by the high safety standards such as ankle protection, steel footbed, high stock, good leather etc. I have my foot, otherwise I would probably have turned off Service. Since my motorcycle got stuck in the broken road and turned 180 degrees and my foot was under the bike. Thanks to your shoes, I've only gotten a couple of fractures on the lower leg and ankle, which is the worst evil I've lost my foot.
Thank you so much again for making such shoes. And my new boots will also bear the name Daytona.
With kind regards
Thomas Würth, Germany
Happy feet happy rider!
I wore my daytona road stars from boston to north adams to montreal through labrador and newfoundland and back down again. Happy feet happy rider!
Super service, super boots
After 20 years, I have again started to ride a motorcycle. From a friend I got the tip to buy Daytona boots. With the enhancement in the Ladystar GTX, I was able to realize the dream and now drive a BMW. On 12.09. the switch amplified and I wrote to Daytona. Hardly to believe, but the answer came right the next day. I sent the boots and got today (not even a week later) to match the great weather my super comfortable boots row again. They shine like new !!! Andrea Schütz, Germany
120,000 km without problems
After 16 years and about 120,000 km in wind and weather, it will be time to visit the company Frey and buy a new nonstop GTX. Never had a problem with the boots during this period. I can only recommend the best recommendations for this product.
Andreas Petter, Germany
In April 1978
I bought my first pair of Daytona boots model Thruxton at Harro in Rohrdorf. There were 2 more pairs of Daytona boots "Traveler" and "TransOpen". 350,000 km with 3 pairs of boots, that makes no other boot mark so fast. If there is a new purchase, there is only one choice for me - Daytona!
Karl Steinmetz, Germany
There must be only one
Some people have many boots in their wardrobes. For example, for optical reasons. For motorcycling but only one boot is needed. The one from Daytona. Since then I drive her boots need, I do not want another more. Oliver Passelat, Germany
There's just nothing I can complain about.
For years, I swear on my Daytona, Why should I buy something else? Why should I be so stupid as to take something worse? My wife, who is now riding a motorbike, also gets it. There's just nothing I can complain about. I hope that you will continue to remain on the market and beibehaltet your products. I won't stand in the way. Richard Hammann, Germany
My big thanks to all the staff and the boss of Daytona.
For my feet, I have never really got shoes in the trade. When I visited Eggenfelden I could not find a shoe. Then the company owner was brought, who measured my feet and told me that the appropriate shoes were made for a small surcharge. Said and done. What then completely surprised, was only a week delivery time. And what a miracle, the "Arrow Sport GTX" have immediately fitted, no pressure and no more pain. You can even go on the road with it. The boot is worth every euro.
Peter Kopecki, Germany
Because I have relatively short legs ...
Help me the BURDIT XCR® over the missing centimeters away. Now fits my XSR. Thank you, Manfred Götz Germany
Never again without Daytona on a motorbike
When I started to ride a motorcycle, my boots did not matter. The principal thing he looked good and cost little money. Then I went on a tripuro and drove in every weather. I was angry at wet feet. Then came my first Dayton boots. No more wet feet. The change to a nude. Transopen GTX sold, new Daytona, first accident, broken boots, foot heals, Daytona helped quickly, cheaply and promptly. Racing moped built up on the track. 3 years without accident, then the fall. Pannoniaring, curve 5, motorcycle slips away, foot under the crate to the gravel bed. Boots broken, foot healed, not even a blue spot. Never again without Daytona on the bike.
Ralf Lindner, Germany
Circuit Mettet, first turn, Departures: boots destroyed. Feet healed.
The sun is shining, the birds chirping, a wonderful day at Circuit Mettet has begun. About 20 minutes Later, it was in the middle of the first turn, this idyllic atmosphere came to a tire squeal and a subsequent scratching and swearing on my part. A trip to the gravel bed was the reason for this. So I've never imagined my first racetrack visit. But the great and ancient Daytona Security EVO did not let me down. The boots were the whole slide in the gravel bed over clamped under my CBR and were distorted under extreme mechanical stress, but my feet are excellent. Now worn outside boots I take in exchange best health gladly accept. A new Security EVO G3 is already on the way to me, because another manufacturer I would not trust more! Ben Wader, Germany
Daytona is worth every penny
A story like mine has been repeatedly told here, but I think that something should simply tell again and again. I bought as returners after about one year, a pair of Road Star GTX on the advice of a saleswoman three weeks ago.
Yes, in the first moment I found the price quite neat;) The first days always with sunshine and it was from the beginning a great climate in the shoe. Then we had planned a tour of the resin for the last days. Sunday going on at great weather and then the last two days of rain, rain, rain. Monday about three hours and Tuesday about 4.5 hours in the continuous rain back. What should I say, I was wet everywhere, and only the feet were really dry! Daytona is worth every penny! Greeting Bernd Schmidt, Germany
I drive off relatively quickly :D otherwise really good boots, recommended.
Marco Freund, Germany
Super good service
Thanks a lot for the super good service. The boots were already back on Saturday.
So us is really the language stayed away, and everything was super mega good repair.
Thanks a lot for the good service, and what shows us again? If you buy good quality, at the right dealer,
Then you know what one has and gets super good service.
Furthermore, all the best regards with warm regards from Lake Constance
Birgit Krause-Fischer, Germany
37 years and 3 months held - an incredible quality
13% VAT, gross 159, - DM. So much (little) cost my Daytona racing boots on 12.04.1980. In these 37 years and 3 months they have faithfully accompanied me on countless tours and many 100,000 km, as well as 11 motorcycles "survived". An incredible quality and thanks to good care until the end over many hours of water. Many thanks to the manufacturer for this extraordinary longevity !! Of course, the new boots will be from Daytona.
Walter Lotter, Germany
You attract them, they fit perfectly
On my visit on the 05.07. In factory sales in Eggenfelden, the decision for a new pair of boots with better protective equipment quickly fell. I drive the touring boot, it has always kept close thanks to Goretex and has accompanied me on many trips in recent years. The employee has top advise me and I recommend the EVO GTX Voltex with liner. Has fit like poured. I did not undressed the shoes and I drove home with them. Top feeling in the foot and despite hot 30 degrees and 180 km in a row no rubber boots feeling, but pleasantly tempered. What else can I say: you attract them, they sit perfectly, convey a great feeling and wear themselves simply dreamlike. Ah yes, the old boots were left there equal to resole. For small money, a reserve pair soon comes home. But I think they'll stay on the shelf anyway ... the new ones are just too good. Thanks to the very nice employee of Daytona and a nice greeting to Eggenfelden. I'll come back ... with brother ... friends ... by the way, all the Daytona bearers from conviction. The oldest shoe is about 25 years old and just keeps on. Not broken to get ;-)) Greetings from the Upper Palatinate to the Daytona team and the boss Mrs. Frey. Norbert Maier, Germany
After 25 years of continuous stress, our paths are separated
Now, however, is enough;) after 25 years, our paths separated ... first Honda CB450N, then Yamaha RD500, then Suzuki GSX-R 1100, in between still a motocross team. Starting in the garbage with the Daytona Le Mans and for the next motorcycle really need a few new ones, right?
Bernd Rösel, Germany
"I should have bought them much earlier ..."
For 35 years I've been riding a motorcycle, always with daytona boots on my feet. Of the quality and wear comfort I am 100% convinced. No matter whether it is in the Spanish Pyrenees or a short ceremony, my Roadstar GTX are always there and look for over 150,000 kilometers and little care still good. In recent years, I have been able to do well for at least five friends and have been able to convince them of these handy arguments to buy daytona boots. As a feedback, I always get: "I should have bought that much earlier ..." Continue so daytona Greetings Rudolf Rupp, Germany
I've been riding a motorcycle for a year, and on the recommendation of many bikers I started with the Lady Pilot. Shock, after just 2 years the sole dissolves. But according to Daytona no problem. So I sent the boots and what can I say. Such a lace service I have never experienced !!!!!!! Within 3 days I had my boots back. Simply top. Thank you thank you. Super protection, no wet feet and super customer sevice. Karin Beckert, Germany
Generational change after 25 years
Generational change after 25 years
I replaced my old Daytona boots (left) with a new pair of Daytona Nonstop GTX (right). The old boots were always treated with Daytona leather care, with the result that the leather and the seams are still top! Even the Gore-Tex membrane is still tight! Why did I buy new ones? Especially because of the better ankle / shin protection of the newer models and also, because in my old now the soles and also the switching reinforcements are worn out. The outstanding durability and the incomparable combination of safety and comfort relativize the not quite cheap purchase price, then as now. Because of the offered and now increasingly rare quality "Made in Germany" it was clear to me that my new motorcycle boots again become the brand of Daytona. After I tried different models, it was the model Nonstop GTX, whose shank best suited to my relatively slim calves.
Marcel Schwickerath, Germany
For 45 years a team
I drive Daytona boots since 1973. My first were inside with fur and zip back and 3 straps for reinforcement.
Ludwig Schmalzgruber, Germany
Thanks for The Best Speedway boots Always
Hi, have been a fan of Daytona boots since my Speedway hero of the 1970's Ole Olsen, maybe the First to be sponsored by Daytona, wore them for racing. I have maybe a rare set (prototype) with both heels intact, if I win the price draw, Moto Fun uk 9, would be great, Best regards. Neil Roughton, UK
The Daytonas have kept my feet from injuries for over 20 years
When I started racing, some highsiders ended with torn inside and outside bands and even a heel bone fracture. As a mechanic at HB-Honda in the World Cup I got to know the Daytonaschuhe. For my own racing, these shoes were the logical decision. Today, many races and many crashes later, I still drive Daytona and they have kept my feet for over 20 years from injuries. Simply the best choice. Christian Muth, Germany
The processing and equipment of the shoe speak for themselves.
When I started riding motorcycles again after 26 years, my friends gave me parts of their old equipment. Among other things, a few summer short boots. These have kept at least 3 years, and then recommended by self-dissolution replacement. After a short search and by many hints, I've looked at the Daytonas AC4 and am linging in the Louis shop times. A feeling like at home. Everything was fine, and the feeling of walking was good. But what will be the endurance feeling? Simply best, I can now say. For the summer simply the best choice. The processing and equipment of the shoe speak for themselves. Certainly somewhat more expensive than the competition, but just for it with possibility to repair and quality promises. I am still satisfied today. Greetings from South Swabia. Marcus Berndt, Germany
250,000 common km
After 14 years and almost 250,000 common kilometers, I now got my second pair of Roadstar GTX. As you can see in the photo, my old couple got a lot of sun, lots of rain, from time to time snow and also very much mud. Long were the weeks when I had them sent to repair the resole and seams. But it was worth it, we spent 6 years together again. But now their time has come, the leather is not getting any younger and they have now had to place their place at a new pair. To the next 250,000km, with everything that belongs to the motorcycle! The Left in greeting Ilka Seydewitz
Could not be better
The best motorcycle boots I've ever worn since I made the lobe in 1983. 42°C in Morocco: the feet breathe thanks to Gore Tex. Shoes cooling in the river of Todra Gorge: the feet are dry. 800 km Dolomite rain tour on a weekend: the feet remained dry. I wear the shoes with the Daytona leather Polish, after which they look like new, but are 6 years old. Manfred Kölle Germany
In these boots I feel safe!
In 1994, I had the experience of wearing a Daytona Evo boot for the first time. At that time I thought to myself, wow, with this you can go jogging, so light and comfortable is the boot. After 22 years I still use the same inner shoe, only the outer boot was renewed in 2015. With my hobby I would not like to do without the proven daytona quality. In these boots I feel safe! Martin Brenner, Germany
What if he could talk?
Telling of 7 years. From about 90,000 km. From the daily road to work. From tours to 11 countries. From salt showers in winter and salt water at the beach in summer. From cautiously estimated 3,500 times on and off. From the zippers and the velcro, which one does not look at it. From nasty teeth to the foot pegs. From the rough tar in large sloping positions. Of that he is still tight. Of the fact that he suffered a little visually. I think he would say: again! And so there is the same as a new pair. Or just new soles?
Olli Gronz, Germany
A difference like day and night - the boots are worth every euro
After many years of motorcycle abstinence I started again 6 years ago. So they had new clothes, including boots. Polo Shop Rosenheim directly viewed the Road Star. Great boots ... high price. That's something cheaper, I thought. Taken a cheaper off the shelf, tried ... crap :-( tweaks at all corners Then the saleswoman. try to Daytona times. Me: is too expensive. Next brand tried ... the same in green :-( Saleswoman now with "reprint": now just pull the Roadstar on, only for testing. OK, I love to try him ... and did not pull him out afterwards. :-) A difference like day and night. The high price does not come by chance, quality has its price. The boots are worth every euro. At the same place my thanks to the seller in the polo shop Rosenheim for her perseverance. She also said I was not the first one to do it, she just has to make sure that the customers wear the boots once. Then the topic has settled and the customers buy the Daytona. For two and a half years I was also TOP! Satisfied with it, with every wind and weather on the way, often hours in the rain, NULL problems. Then, after about 20,000 km of water, water came into the switching amplification. This seems to be a small weakness, the problem had already others before me. So test the highly praised service of Daytona. Call at the factory, I explained the problem and first an apology. This is not the quality for the Daytona stands and they repair the boots naturally on warranty. Since I am from Bavaria, I did a nice day trip and brought the boots personally at Daytona. What other manufacturer is such a thing ...? 1-2 weeks later they sent me the repaired boots home. New sole on it and looked like new. Now they are 6 years old and look (with good care !!) as out of the shelf. For the summer months, I have, incidentally, 5 years ago the Journey XCR. The quality for many, many years, the service and handwork "Made in Germany" makes the higher price more than compensate. Thanks to everyone at Daytona and keep up.
Servus Robert Großewang, Germany
Just great, what the Daytona workshop has done. Every cent worth 100%!
I had my heavily attacked Daytona Evo 14 days ago with defective zipper (fall sequence) over our Louis store in Hannover (only left). Back, he came over in an absolute top condition. Not only the zipper was renewed as desired, also the switching amplification was new and as a coronation still a hole excellent with a reinforcement provided. Since the end was also super cleaned, he now looks at least 5 years younger than the right boot. Since I am now quite hard to make the right look the same. Just great what the Daytona workshop has done. Every cent 100% worth it! A thousand thanks again for your quality so lives. 110% Recommendation from me.
Maik Hörnicke, Germany
Driving, hiking, climbing ... all no problem
My first motorcycle boots were due to the consultation with Louis a pair of Daytona and I am really excited! I am now in 3 years about 30,000 km with them and drove them imme rwieder gladly. Great alpine tours with up to 500 km a day and small hiking and trekking, no problem!
Daniel Meyland, Germany
Apparently endlessly durable
While I can report no dramatic event with Daytona boots, but own a pair of outdoor GTX and a pair Trans Open GTX. Interestingly, the outdoors are at least ten years older than the TransOpen, but (also thanks to good care) look almost like new. One might think that with increasing age they are getting better (smoother); That daytona boots are qualitatively, production technically and above all from the fit form as well as the convenience unequaled, is for me out of question. The superficial purchase price is actually favorable and justified for the aforementioned reasons as well as the obviously "endless" durability. "Made in Germany" is still today, and in the case of Daytona definitely, a seal of quality. Günter Grones, Germany
Always Daytona - if I need one again
I drive now been at least 8 years with my wonderful Daytona boots. Even climbing from the motorbike and walking a few kilometers with it is no problem and you are still waterproof. I have not had a better boot before, and I would always buy Daytona boots. Many Thanks. Michael Bakker, Germany
For 12 years, wonderful tours with the Outing GTX experienced and experienced, and as good as the look, stay with me for a long time :) Joachim Haag, Germany
After 15 years comfortable as on the first day
My Daytona Roadstar GTX I have been for over 15 years and they always kept tight. Comfortable as on the first day, from North Cape to Southern Europe - they were always there. Stefan Beck, Germany
