    A bit late to the party but depending on your budget, you cannot beat Daytona. I got a pair of Road Star GTX at a sale price and absolutely love them. I also have a pair Goretex Alpinestars SMX plus which are also a superb boot and very comfy but I always seem to gravitate to the Daytona's. I'm a size 10 1/2 and a euro 45 in both boots fits perfect.

    I have to say the Daytona boots look and feel brilliant, only the price was out of my budget.
    The only boot i have tried on from new to date, that feels like it is already broken in and yet has all the safety features that are expected of a modern boot.
    My next boot, for sure.. :028:

    I just looked at them and the price is quite a bit higher than I can afford atm.

    If I rode loads all year round or rode for a living I'd consider them.

    Ironically my best boots I ever had which kept my feet warm and 100% dry and saved my ankles in a RTA which left me with multiple femur fractures were by Prexport and were cheapies!

    Take a trip to a big dealers (Sportsbikeshop or J&S) and try on lots of different makes - Richa, RST, AStars, Frank Thomas. We all have different shape feet as well as size, and some makes fit differently. I found Dainese Goretex waterproofs most comfortable for me, but you need to try them all.
