Daytona Lady Star GTX Ladies 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.
Sold under various brand names (Gore-Tex, Reissa, Tepor, Sympatex, Hipora, Porell, Helsapor, Enprotex, Nibo, Humax, Drygate etc.). Gore-Tex and Sympatex have patent protection. One thing all these membranes have in common is their basic function: exploiting a temperature gradient, perspiration is transported from the inside to the outside, yet wind and rain cannot get in. This effect makes both fabric and leather clothing highly weatherproof, and also very comfortable to wear. The membranes are manufactured from different base materials, depending on the brand, and are made either as a loose "liner", as a laminate (bonded to the outer material), or as a coating on a carrier material. The first product of this kind, the "Gore-Tex" membrane made of Teflon, fulfils its function due to its very fine pores, which allow moisture from the skin to move outwards, but prevent the larger raindrops from moving inwards. Gore-Tex is indeed highly effective, but the patented material comes at a price. All the other membranes consist of polyurethane or polyester, and transport water vapour molecules outwards by means of chemical reactions. Different materials have been adapted to the various applications in the field of motorcycle clothing. All of these climate membranes are sensitive to mechanical damage: if a membrane is pierced, clearly it can no longer provide protection. Damage can also result from the use of inappropriate washing agents. Softeners, including those contained in detergents, damage the membrane irreparably!
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.
