Have owned nothing but Daytona boots for several years for a variety of riding styles. My feet are a bit on the wide side and these boots just fit the bill! Comfortable, protection in the right spot! Love wearing them day in, day out, will not go a different route!
Excellent long term touring boots(22.05.2020)
My feet are standard EU size 46 EE (or G if UK) and I have "stout" calves. I bought these for long distance touring far from home, mostly street with some light off road, all weather. Part of the criteria was a boot that would cover as much of my lower leg as possible without interfering with the knee protector of my touring suit. Size: correct sizing, 46 is 46 although a slightly roomy 46. I would not order down, I have maybe a little more than 1 cm from the end of the toe box which, with thick socks and a full day out riding/walking, will allow for toe wiggle room so the boots will never feel tight. Quality: super high quality construction, and it's immediately evident in the quality of the leather and the stitching. Nice big symmetrical gear shift pads. Safety: apart from the immediately evident thick leather, you can feel all the protective padding around the boot. Comfort: right out of the box. Good support all around, I'm getting that Birkenstock foot support vibe in the arch. Interior material not scratchy. Height: I'm not particularly long legged, so with a total shaft height of 34 cm, when I'm sitting the top of the boots come to about 10 cm below the knee tendon and do not press the back of the knee. Important note: These are taller and slightly "fuller" boots and will not fit under tight riding jeans or leathers. Just keep in mind that unless you know your pants are wider in the lower leg (I'd say similar to a boot cut in jeans) then it's likely you'll be tucking them in. However, they are not bulky. Conclusion: if you're looking for max protection without going full MX, these are for you. 10/10 happy with purchase.
I have had these boots for 3 seasons already and I am very satisfied to them. Comfortable to wear and feet stay dry when driving in the rain. :)
