Size recommendation: We did the test for you. This motorcycle footwear follows the size chart of regular shoes. Size 44 is size 44. You can assume the sizing chart is pretty traditional.
The M-star GTX is a top of the range boot with all the features you'd expect from a Daytona, and it adds an extra 6 centimetres of sole height. Without the slightly smaller rider having to walk around like in high heels or make unusual movements to change gear properly. The heel is only slightly raised. The essence is on the inside, in the removable sole that gives you a lot of extra centimetres. There is also a ladies’ version of this M-Star which you can find here.
Daytona is more or less synonymous with top quality and it succeeds in making these boots fit perfectly. The sturdy cowhide leather M-star GTX can be opened up to the sole, on both sides. This assures you - despite the high shaft of over 30 centimetres - of a very smooth and quick entry. You close the boot by means of two zippers which are tucked away behind velcro strips. At the back, extra velcro pieces allow you to fit the M-star GTX to perfection.
Inside, the well-constructed boot pretty much regulates the inner climate itself, within the double boot construction. So sweaty feet are not included in the price, although you would expect that from this kind of boot. On the contrary: the M-star GTX is as comfortable as a slipper, so yes, you can do the last few metres on foot. Well-placed accordion pieces on the heel and in front of the ankle emphasise this. The shin gets a big protector, just like the ankles. Heel and toes are extra reinforced and all that doesn't bother you at all inside. Gear shifting panel is of course standard.
Daytona remains true to a number of fixed values: comfort on and off the bike, a long lifespan, pronounced strength and durability in extreme conditions, and the use of top-class materials. Moreover, you can always count on excellent after-sales service from the German manufacturer.
