  • Thank you for much pleasure at fair prices


    Dear Daytona team, I have just received back my 10-year-old Daytona Touring Star GTX from the repair. Thanks for the top quality of your products. And should it be something, you can rely on the lifelong repair service at very fair prices. Thanks to you I will have a lot of fun on my next tours and especially no wet feet. 10 years and they look like new. Keep it up. Best regards, Thomas Oswald, Germany

    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 :-)
    Greetings Benno van Walsem, Germany
  • Highly recommended


    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.

    The most comfortable Boots I've ever had


    I've worn my Evo Sports for the past 8 or 9 years for classic racing & they're the most comfortable boots I've ever had. Great feel & great protection. Five crashes & my feet are still good. They're a bit scruffy now but I love them!

  • Great service


    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 Alex Wentz, Germany

    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! Dietmar Breininger, Germany
  • 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!
    Manuela Wiethof, Germany

    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.
    Harry Starnberg, Germany
  • 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.
    Klaus Meyer, Germany

    Super reliable motorcycle boots


    After 15 years, unfortunately, the reinforcement on the right shoe dissolves. Perhaps a repair is worthwhile.
    Frank Wissing, Germany
  • I want the extra 6 cm


    I am about to buy Daytona Lady Star GTX boots, to be just a liiiiiiitle 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)

    Best friends


    For years the daytonas are my best friends in terms of motorcycle comfort. No sweaty feet and comfortable shifting.

  • 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

    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! Jean Peachey, United Kingdom
  • 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.
    Michael Burger, Germany

    Unrivaled


    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 ;)!
    Christoph Sieger, Germany
  • 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! Ralf Schlösser, 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)
    Judith Höf, Germany

    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

Winner of the hearts - daytona Carver.

Some boots seem to be a question of the heart as well. In the issue of the MOTORRAD from the 19.12.2014 wrote a test editor: „In the test, the boots out of plastic from the competition were better in sound absorption. But looking at the comfort in wearing is good leather, as by the daytona Carver, unbeatable. Those sport boots fit after a short time of wearing as good as a pair of socks! I just like this natural material more and leather gives the best abrasion resistance.“ This private and individual judgement of course touches our hearts…

An oft used expressions is that if racers weren't paid to wear boots, they'd all weare Daytona. And this isn't so far from the truth, going by what we've been told here at FB by countless racers over the years. Any 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 twin-shoe philosophy.
