Daytona Arrow Sport GTX Boots - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Best money can buy
These were bought for my wife after her older boots gave up their waterproof ability. Went to shop to look at boots on offer she must have tried on 7 pairs of boots and the staff were very helpful. these were the best quality for the money - expensive but the specs are very high. She wanted a short boot for European touring. We ordered the right size for home delivery and they fit fine - the difference in sizing between manufacturers is massive so dont trust the size guides always try them on. Sportsbikeshop were superb as normal!
Oozes Quality (but check sizing)
1. top service from sportsbikeshop 2. sizing: when looking at internet reviews ignore the american video review regarding sizing. just get the size you are. if you have wide feet/high instep go 1/2 a size bigger. i'm a 9 so i got a 43 and the fit is a little tight with thick socks but over time may loosen up but still feel ok. i noticed sizing on care manual is different to daytona online chart and size on outer box by 1/2 a size? 3. best quality boots i've had. stitching, zips and leather are high quality. still warm at 0 degrees and as dry as the sahara.
Great shorter style boots
I do a lot of European touring with the tent so these type of boots are great for general wear and walking. But on the bike they are superb. I have a fairly wide foot and they fitted well without need the break them in. I wore them for 3 hours in the house before taking them out on the bike and they were like slippers! Yes expensive but I expect these are going to last me the rest of my biking days.
I've used the shorter style boots for years, generally Hein Gericke. My first purchase of Daytona and definitely not my last. Without doubt the best boots I've had in over 20 years of biking. Covered about 500 (wet) miles in the last 2 weeks and are proving to be comfortable and dry - excellent!!
Top notch ankle length boots
With Daytona boots you get what you pay for. These boots are not cheap but they are well designed and beautifully made. I have yet to do a big ride in them (or to use them in the wet), but I went out for a couple of hours for the first time yesterday in cool (7 deg C) temperatures. The best thing that I can say is that I did not notice them. They were comfortable and pretty warm, not too big or clumsy either. The twin zip and velcro fastening means they are easy to get on and off. I looked at plenty of other boots (mostly cheaper) before making the decision to go with these Daytonas. Recommended.
