Yes it is expensive but what you get is one of the highest quality boots on the market. It runs about a half size smaller. I wear a 9 1/2 so a 43 worked perfect for me. I did go through several other boots that were lower priced but shelled out the cash for these. No regrets.

These boots are comfortable out-of-the-box and get even more comfortable after a short break-in. The side zippers make them very easy to put on and take off. These are very stylish boots and surprisingly lightweight. Comfortable to walk in when not on the bike as well. Expensive but a good example of "you get what you pay for" - highly recommended.

Very early review about sizing...just received yesterday and only 50 miles on them today...my shoe size is 11 and old Revit boots and A'star boots both euro 45...ordered Daytonas in Euro 45 and they are spot on...in short Revzilla size chart appears to be accurate..hope this helps anyone looking at Daytonas...also the quality of these is outstanding!!

Although relatively expensive, the Daytona Road Star boots were the best I could find for what I wanted and are well worth the price.
Before these I used regular boots to ride. I actually feel I am a better rider with these on because they grip better, support my feet and ankles better and they make me feel safer and more confident.
After only 3 months and about 40 rides in rain and shine I can't comment much on durability but they still look almost new with no deep creases.
They feel relatively light for what it is, in fact much lighter than I expected. They broke in very easily and are very comfortable. I ordered a size larger and replaced the foot pad insert with a high quality impact-absorbing one, and I think that made for an even more comfortable fit... although that's a personal thing and most people may not feel the need. I ride in Hawaii and some days are warm, but in spite of all the padding and protection, I have never felt hot in these so its breathability and use of Gortex must work.
Only one little nit-pick I can think of, and that is with the left boot outside zipper that was difficult to zip up where it bends. That said, it's getting easier as it breaks in, and these babies fit me like a glove... plus the problem may be my left foot, not the boot, because the right side is just fine.

Awesome comfortable and dry boot
The Daytona Roadstar GTX boots are an exceptional product as you would expect from Germany. The Size chart on the Revzilla website is totally incorrect. It says a 46 converts to a 12.5. No way! I found a 47 converts to a 12 so don't use the conversion chart.

Comfortable / quality
I just got back into riding and needed a pair of boots. I wear a 13 Wide and have foot "issues", and these were the only motorcycle boots I could find in a wide size. Wasn't thrilled that I had no choice but to shell out $500, but when these arrived and I put them on, I had no regrets. These boots are extremely comfortable, and the quality and design are as good as it gets. I plan to enjoy these for many years.

Attention to detail in every way
I just received my Daytona Roadstar GTX's - WOW! what a boot. These are clearly a handmade German made product - the attention to detail is present in every aspect. I wear a size 13m and ordered the size 47 - the length is perfect, but I had to add a bit thicker insole to take up the excess space at the top of the foot (this is typical for me as I have long narrow feet). Once the thicker insole was inserted my foot fit perfectly. Having owned many high-end boots in my life (Kennetrek, Scarpa, Vasque, Sidi, etc) I can tell you that the fit and finish of these boots is exemplary.
