My old SiDi Way Rain boots had died so I needed to find some replacements. I had a good look across the market at touring boots and everything looked pretty much of a muchness. I remembered I had a pair of very nicely made Daytona brand (made in Germany) race boots way back when. That's them in my avatar. I had a look to see if Daytona is still in business and they sure are. Daytona make a huge range of touring boots as well as racing and sport boots. Product reviews sounded good. I've got fairly long legs so waterproof overtrousers tend to ride up over the top of standard 30cm height boots which allows the rain to run in. I see that the Daytona Traveller GTX tourimg boot stands 34cm. An online hunt for a deal results in me parting with 235 Euros plus freight and 5 weeks later I have my boots. First impressions are these are a serious piece of kit. Construction is double skinned but these are not separable as in a ski boot. The GoreTex membrane is carried in the inner skin. The inner skin also carries an elasticated cuff around the top. Unusually, closure is by two zips, one on either side of the boot. There are also two velcro panels at the top rear for calf size adjustment. Zip pulls operate through steel wire loops, not the aluminium ones as disintegrated on my SiDis. Clever design features abound, most of which you can't see like the plastic cap in the toe box to protect the GoreTex from chafing by toenails. Trying them on for the first time, two things strike me. These are very comfy for motorcycle boots and the fit is really 'generous' to say the least. They need to be worn with thick hiking or motocross socks. If you are considering buying a pair I would say don't even think of going up from your normal shoe size. These are not hot weather boots so I'll have to wait for some inclement weather to give them a proper workout. In fact they were probably designed with the Elephant rally in mind. I'll keep you updated.
