Daytona Strive GTX boots £369.99

Tester: Simon Relph

Time tested: 4800 miles/13 months

What’s good? If you get cold feet and hate getting them wet when riding in the rain, then these are the boots for you. I have worn them for the whole of last winter, and then on and off through the summer, to be honest, I struggled not to wear them as they became my boots of habit, and had to hide them from myself so I tried others. They’re beautifully made and well designed, padded in all the right places when it comes to safety, but also come with titanium toesliders that gives them a bit of a sporty look and practical protection. Very easy to put on and take off thanks to the zips being on the inside of the boots, one of the things I actually look for when buying a pair of motorcycle boots. My favourite two words in waterproof clothing are written down the side - Gore and Tex. The sole is durable and shows very little sign of wear, even though I walk around in them a fair amount. Basically, they’re comfy, warm and dry, what more could you want!

What’s not? I struggle to find anything not to like about these boots apart from the fact they are not self-polishing and they are rather expensive.
