Daytona roadstar gtx boots ?

Hello everyone,

I am interested in buying good boots, i expect

- Ankle and overall protection
- All day riding comfort
- Walking or better yet hiking
- Waterproof
- No more than $500

I have
  • Dainese Dyno D1 Shoes : Great Ankle protection, All day comfort but not waterproof and cant walk except restroom trips
  • Bates Riding Shoes : Very comfortable, I hiked few National Parks on my last trip to utah
    They are not waterproof and almost no Protection

I did my research and looks like the best boots can be Dayatona Roadstart GTX but they are expensive
I cant seem to find any place where I can try it out

Any one has these shoes ?
I use 10.5 for most of the US brands, do you guys recommend anything else

My most comfortable boots are resoled 25 year old Daytona’s. I have an old well used Roadstar GTX and a newer pair that are maybe Trans Open GTX and slightly taller. I’m a fan.

Hope you have better luck getting any info from Helimot than I did. I’ve been wanting to replace outer boots and have emailed multiple times As well as phone calls with no luck.

Fantastic all around boot. I've got a pair in size 43 never been worn outside. The right is just a bit short, I'd love it if someone wanted to trade their size 44's
