Frey. The Frey family originally opened its Bavarian shoe factory in 1957 and started to make footwear specifically for motorcycling in 1962. Since then, the company has exploded in popularity amongst riders and has asserted their status as one of the highest quality boot makers in the world. Daytona also works exclusively with Gore-Tex, this is because they believe that Gore's membrane is the most effective at stopping rain from coming in, and at allowing moisture to get out. With decades of hand-crafted boot making experience to their name, Daytona has taken a lane of its own and continues working solely to supply their customers with the finest quality riding equipment.
