I am fortunate enough to own several pairs of motorcycle boots, all have their own individual uses and merits, but if I had to choose a pair that would do everything and discard the rest, then for me it would have to be the Daytona Roadstar GTX.
They have been described as the ultimate all-rounder, great for touring, but also brilliant for commuting and weekend blasts. These boots are so comfortable on long riding days coupled with being like slippers on those sight-seeing jaunts during a trip- I’ve even walked the dog in them!!
The Daytona’s are made in Germany, have been around for many years, and are still in high demand.
Construction comes from hydrophobic cowhide with a Gore-Tex climatic membrane which makes them waterproof and breathable, so no sweaty feet from these babies. I use them all year round. Warm enough for the extremely cold riding temperatures of winter, but your feet won’t overheat on a tour in hot climates.
Nothing has been left out with these boots; they come in sizes from 36-51 with standard and wide fitting choices, and are unisex too. They have an anatomically formed climatic insole, which keeps feet cool or warm dependant on the season. There are two zips for quick and easy access as well as two Velcro adjusters for individual calf fitting.
Safety wise, there are composite protectors on both ankles plus wide shinbone protection, padded with latex foam inside. You also get a hot-dip galvanised steel inlay in the foot pad which will help prevent crush injuries, an extra grippy sole and 3M Scotchlite reflectors on the heel. Each boot has a reinforced gear change cushion made from abrasion resistant PU foam.
What isn’t mentioned by many retailers is the fact that you can have the inner sock, membrane and sole replaced by sending them back to Daytona-cheaper than buying a new pair.
Presently these boots are retailing for around £300, which is pretty hefty. Shopping around may net you a pair for less and would be worth the effort if you want top quality.

Superb boots-still going strong after 10 years of use. Very comfortable for all day use. Expensive to buy initially but the quality is superb and over the years they pay for themselves.
Give em a bit of TLC now and again to look after the leather and they will look after you for best part of a decade

Daytona Roadstar GTX

Have to agree with all the positive comments about these boots. I have had mine for 8 yrs, used year round and they have been superb. I rode through heavy rain for 7-8 hours a couple of weeks ago and they slowly let in the damp so time to send them back for a 'refresh'. As they were the only boots I had, I have had to buy a new pair for when they get posted. I have gone for a new pair of Altberg HOGG All Weather of which I will review in the next few months.
Highly recommend these Daytona's
