Why would get get anything different?


Comments On Oct 27, 2013:Alpine Stars boots have always been worn by the pro's. They have always been top rated. If all of us amateurs are trying to be like the pro's, why wouldn't we get the same stuff that they do?! These boots look great, and feel great! These were the first pair of brand new boots I have ever owned. They feel super comfortable, and already have protected me several times. I wouldn't get anything BUT tech 8's again! Love them!

Tech 8 is just OKAY

Aaron in California

Comments On Jun 05, 2013:They are quite expensive, as all Alpinestars boots. Well now, all boots are but these are especially expensive for what you get. I ride weekly, I put a lot of use in my boots. The Tech 8's don't take very long to break in, and that's the only good thing I have to say. The bootie doesn't fit everyone's foot, and personally, it's uncomfortable. I crashed about half a year ago, and when I went down, 2 of my buckles were torn off. It wasn't that bad of a crash, I wasn't injured, the bike was untouched. I was pretty mad about that. They are DECENT boots for a beginner.

For this kind of money......Pass

Jason in TN

Comments On Jun 27, 2012:Nice boot but for this kind of dough....I would have passed. I have only had one other kind of boot which was the cheapest boot I could find however, it was a quater of the cost. I splurged buying the tech 8s hoping for the best, but I really don't think the quality is where it should be.
My biggest gripe with the boot is after two rides the "removeable" right boot starter protecter ripped off. Removeable is right. The front metal toe protection is lifted on one side. On the upside, the boot fits me pretty well (size 12). The very front of the boot over buckle 2 I believe doesn't have quite enough material to adequately cover the boot inner when fully buckled. I have a pretty skinny legs too. In summary:
Pros: Light, fit pretty well, looks great, I feel fancy Cons: Right inner kickstart protector ripped off boot after 2nd ride, not quite the quality I was expecting.
I would probably try a different boot upon next purchase....sadly.

Boot is light

Daniel in AZ

Comments On Feb 18, 2012:This boot is very light compared to my old tech 8 boots. I like the buckle system on the new boots also. I am having a hard time breaking them in but after 4 motos and a few practice days and a power wash they are starting to come around.
