I am the same as will morgan. I bought a pair of daytonas as they were available locally but would have gone for a pair of altbergs if i was able to visit the factory and had them made to measure. Always good to support uk business to.
Having said that the daytonas are excellent boots.

Thanks for the replies travel stars look good as I like the idea of zip being covered does anybody know if there is more protection in these boots compared to standard gtx which I've seen . Also altbergs look good but no access to see then in the flesh

Yes I think the CE version has more protection than the other boots.

÷1 for Travel star. I'm on my 2nd pair. First pair lasted maybe 100,000 miles or 10 years (I lost count). They say they will rebuild them, but mine were so old they told me not to take the p!$$ and sent them back! Despite being slightly miffed I saw their point and bought another pair. Boots for life, not cheap but £/year or £/ mile is amazing. Plus they're comfortable in a way none of my other boots have been, even walking around for hours in them.

The only V8 I'm likely to own comes in one litre tetrapaks and tastes like celery.

Play nicely!
Bikes I've had:
Vespa 150 Super, GPz500s, FZR600R, ZX6R, FZS1000 (x2), 2009 Matt Graphite STR
…and some pedally ones as well!

I have a pair of Daytona Travel Star GTX boots. Quite frankly they are the best boot I have ever had for the road. They don't leak a bit, are extremely comfortable and if the crash results are to be believed top notch.

Its the boot the police riders use and it was beefed up to meet their standards.

Without a doubt I would say go for a pair you will not be disappointed.
.
Sad to say I had an off at 60+ which wrote off my beloved ZX7R, but walked away from it and the Daytona’s were barely scuffed. You get what you pay for!

On my second pair of Daytona's and didn't even consider any other make when replacing the first pair.

I bought TCX S-Speed Gore-Tex Boots from SportsBikeShop.
They show as £175 at the mo, but a mate and I managed to get a price match on M&P's sale price of £120 - bargain.
These have excellent ankle protection and are made of GoreTex with leather uppers.
The ankle protection system makes them squeak a bit, but it's a small price to pay.

I too ride in TCX boots, the S-Speed GTX and the Street Ace.

I've had the S-Speed for five years riding now, had a crash in them too, and I can't fault them. They do stay waterproof, they are comfortable (for a proper sports riding boot) and won't wear out it seems like. They do squeak, yes.

The Street Ace are ace (sorry) for going to work. They look like an ordinary shoe, but are a CE-approved riding boot. It's a good bad shoe. Waterproof too (not tested extensively, but Ryan at Fortnine swears by them.

And TCX boots often come up with deals, which is great. Look for last years model, colour or overstock, and you can easily shave off hundreds from MSRP.

Daytona are very comfortable, but look a bit like Wellingtons... I've just gone for Altberg Hogg boots and love them, like wearing big slippers without the power ranger sports bike look.

I have AltBergs too and can't fault them.  The waterproof winter ones are a bit heavy, but construction quality is top notch!
