I bought these for hot weather riding. I have been riding in a over the calf gore-tex leather boots that were roasting me out in temps over 85 degrees. They seem to fit true to size. However, the tongue is very uncomfortable at the top. It digs into my leg above the ankle. I am riding a dual sport so I find this surprising since I sit more upright with my legs more vertical than most bikes. The boots are great besides this issue. Unfortunately they are so uncomfortable I could not recommend them to anybody. <span>Additional Comments On Jul 11, 2011:</span>After riding in these and wearing them around to break them in I have raised my rating to 4 stars. The tongues have broken in nicely. I wore them for the ride into the office today and never changed shoes. They were comfortable enough to wear all day. I gave it 4 stars but I would recommend these shoes as a good compromise of comfort vs price.Read All Reviews

Think "Italian, Hand-made" and you get an idea of this boot. The boot itself is extremely comfortable yet, stiff. This is not a boot to wear to the grocery store or mall. Every part on the boot is completely replaceable, and replacements can be found almost anywhere. The techno adjusters allow for a various range of sizes. The only down-side to this boot is putting it on and off. If you can spare a few minutes to correctly fit everything and adjust accordingly then this is the boot for you. Apart from the lengthy on and off process (5 months in, and takes me about 45 sec per boot), this boot is perfect and intended for maximum movement while still providing maximum protection. Great boot, you won't be disappointed. Fits true to size.Read All Reviews

the price is very high. I have had aplinestars my entire life, over 20 years of riding, and the quality has substantially decreased in both design and quality of components. To say I am disappointed with the tech 8 light would be an understatement. After the second ride, the right boot piece of plastic protector or whatever it is started to come apart, getting caught on shrouds, footpegs, engine case, whatever it got too close too. It then completely ripped off and has left stripped off allen bolts in the boot which I cannot remove. Terrible design alpinestars. Second, the material that the boot inner flap that folds under is made of is subpar and disintegrates very shortly after initial breakdown leaving a piece of leather with multiple holes and loose flaps of material hanging. Terrible design alpinestars. Thrid, the inner boot is beyond incomprehensible to anyone with the slightest bit of engineering knowledge. It is not a boot but instead two pieces of material glued together that is not even a complete bootie, but instead is a heel portion and a flat foot piece that has no top, no end piece, and once removed for cleaning, is literally impossible to reinstall correctly without becoming entangled and folding over on its self when attempting to reinsert down into the deeper parts of the boot. For shame alpinestars, I will never buy your over priced boots again.Read All Reviews

I have a few lower end riding boots and usually can't wait to take them off. My son (3 years old) typically rides about 3 times a day for 20 to 30 minutes at a time. He never takes these things off and says they feel good. These boots are great for a beginner because they are not so cumbersome and seem to break in very quickly yet offer good protection from tip overs, burns, and wrecks which are frequent around here. I highly recommend them for kids learning to ride because if you can prevent them from getting burnt and cut up they are much more likely to continue to ride and enjoy it.Read All Reviews
