Daytona Evo Voltex motorcycle boots 42 (DYA94942)
Tony Hoare: Product Review
What’s good? There are lots of positives about these boots, but the only place I can possible start is with the price. At £680 I know there will need to be a lot of plus points before anyone could consider splashing out such an amount on one pair of boots, so here goes. They’re amazingly comfortable, offer reassuring protection against impacts, awkward flexing and potential crushing thanks to an inner boot that’s made from a tough aramid/plastic mix. The sole is tough as hell but remains comfortable for riding and walking, and the ability to adjust the fit using Velcro straps on the inner boot and an adjuster at the calf means they can be worn with various kit combinations. Comfort is also boosted by the use of a Gore-Tex membrane in the inner boot, which remains the best option for keeping feet dry in the rain and not too sweaty on hot days. And, best of all in my opinion, I smacked them against the track in a recent crash and walked away, despite giving my feet and ankles a big enough whack to leave me convinced I’d broken my big toe (x-rays showed I hadn’t). The importers say Daytona boots can last some riders 15 years and a rebuild service is available at an extra cost, once they’re showing signs of wear. What’s not? It’s hard to get away from the price where there are highly protective and comfortable motorcycle boots available for a third of the cost.
Redzed: Product Review
Very comfortable and well made. It takes a little longer to put on due to the inner and outer boot, but the additional protection this boot offers makes it worthwhile.
