Daytona boots

I received a rather pleasant surprise today. I found that Revzilla.com is now selling Daytona boots out of Germany. Helimot has had them for some time, but the selection was rather limited. At this time Revzilla only has 3 of their styles, but I am really hoping that most of the line works its way over here. Daytona is legendary for their safety, quality, and comfort. They are certainly expensive, but worth every dime. Now if only SWMBO will allow me to order. Might be tough being that she already knows that I am eyeing up a new 2013 FZ1 to replace old faithful.

Daytona boots are pricy but I was going through a $200 pair of boots in about 12 months and my Daytona are now about 3 yes old so they are actually cheaper than buying cheaper boots.

I've never heard of daytona boots. How much are they though? What's considered cheaper boots... I've had my eyes set on some Alpine stars forever... but it sounds like I might need to save my money and invest even higher?

Its around a $450 commitment the goretex touring boots and over $1000 for the top of the line security evo race boot. ask around though and most people will say that they are well worth the money.
