Alpinestars Motorcycle Boots
Alpinestars are one of the biggest manufacturers of high-performance protective gear for motorcycle and auto racing in the world. Alpinestars motorcycle boots are known for their comfort, grip and most importantly, safety features. Made from leather and other anti-abrasive materials, each boot is designed to keep the foot, ankle and leg safe from breaks and road rash upon impact.
Whether you are after boots for touring, racing, commuting or for casual wear there are a variety of different styles to choose from to suit your riding requirements. Each boot is specifically designed to perform in a unique way. Many of the racing boots are created with performance in mind. The Supertech series, for example, is made from a microfibre shell, these boots offer durability, water-resistance and weight savings. They also retain flexibility through the microfiber upper construction.
More casual motorcycle boots such as the J-6 offer protection to the ankles and feet whilst focusing on style and comfort. Despite not protecting the shins, these boots are highly durable and will keep your feet dry thanks to their waterproof membrane.
Some of the most popular Alpinestars motorcycle boots are their touring range. The Supertouring Gore-Tex ® boot, for example, focuses less on performance and speed and more on comfortability, protection and water-resistance.
One of the most important things to consider when buying Alpinestars motorcycle boots is the safety features you can benefit from. It is important to check that the boots have layered ankle protectors and internal toe and heel boxes to keep the bones in your foot safe upon impact.
If you are buying boots that go over the shin, ensure the shin plate offers enough protection and durability. Another key safety feature that is often overlooked is reflective strips on the back of the boot. These will keep you visible in darkness and lowlight.
