Daytona Touring Star GTX Boots
Manufacturer details: Daytona Stiefel
The perfect motorcycle boots
Daytona motorcycle boots are the epitome of the expression "Made in Germany": vast experience and know-how, sophisticated design, carefully selected materials and meticulous workmanship. This in fact applies for the entire Daytona range; from light short shaft boots through to the legendary touring boots and hard shell racing boots.
No wonder therefore that the Daytona products are serial winners of comparative tests in the trade press, irrespective of whether the focus is on safety, comfort, workmanship or handling.
Daytona boots do come at a price - but it's well worth paying. This is not least because Daytonas keep giving their owners a great deal of pleasure after many years of intensive motorcycle riding.
In a nutshell, if you've ever put Daytonas on your feet then you'll know that any other motorcycle boot just isn't good enough.

3M Scotchlite consists of a large number of microscopically small, reflective glass beads. The reflective material is visible from a distance of 160 m, which significantly improves the wearer's safety at night. It can be used in visually interesting ways, for instance in the form of emblems or narrow decorative stripes.
Most traditional, high-quality outer material with cult status for motorcycle clothing and accessories. Unmistakable in its natural, high-quality look, the strong image, ideally suited to both figure-hugging and highly functional designs. The biker's "second skin" still has the edge over any textile material when it comes to safety and resistance to abrasion and tearing. The way the material stretches as the clothing is worn means that leather clothing adapts to the body contours ideally, thus also guaranteeing that protectors fit optimally. Leather clothing should therefore always be bought with a close fit. Impregnation, leather oil and surface coatings guarantee good weather protection and a degree of rainproofing, but unfortunately also limit the breathability. Relatively heavy, but enthusiasts value this as a "quality feature". Looked after properly, it is very durable. Because leather does not itself offer much thermal insulation, the other features of the garment, or the base layers of clothing, must provide some help here.

Availability of extra-small and extra-large sizes
The most popular boot sizes from Daytona are 37 to 47. Louis usually has these in stock and can dispatch them quickly when you place your order. Extra-small (34 to 36) and extra-large (48 to 51) sizes, on the other hand, are only produced in relatively small quantities by Daytona, due to lower demand, and in some cases only to order. For this reason, if you order one of these sizes, delivery may take a little longer. We trust you will understand, and we promise to deliver your order as quickly as possible.
