Day­tona steps in

Old Bike Australasia - - GOOD GEAR -

Now avail­able in Aus­tralia is the range of the fa­mous Day­tona boots, made in Ger­many since 1973 by the Frey fam­ily. Ev­ery year, around 70,000 pairs of hand-as­sem­bled boots leave the fac­tory at Eggen­fel­don, near Munich. The Day­tona range changes lit­tle, as tra­di­tional styles are very pop­u­lar and the hand as­sem­bly process means ut­most at­ten­tion to com­fort, safety and long life. Day­tona even of­fer a ser­vice to re­pair their boots; just send ‘em to the fac­tory and they’ll come back to you as good as new. Aus­tralian im­porters Made in Ger­many Pty Lim­ited, are bring­ing in a lim­ited range of Day­tona boots in both men’s and women’s styles, in­clud­ing the one featured here, the Arrow Sport GTX. This is a short (22cm) boot, which makes a lot of sense in our cli­mate, but still of­fers all the fea­tures you’d want. In soft, wa­ter re­pel­lant cowhide, which is breath­able thanks to the Gore-Tex cli­matic mem­brane, this model fea­tures a two-sided zip for easy fit­ting, with a PU foam sole. There’s an­kle pro­tec­tion both sides with an in­ner sole that has a gal­vanised steel in­sert. I have a pair and they’re ex­tremely com­fort­able and – a real plus – sim­ple to get on and off thanks to the flapped front. In sizes 36-49, the Arrow Sport GTX has a rrp of $499.00.
