Borne from the serene Italian landscape, built for the roaring sport of motorcycle racing – Alpinestars’ riding gear has set the industry standard for protection, quality, and durability.
In the beginning, leather craftsman and Alpinestars founder Sante Mazzarolo was producing boots for only hiking and skiing. The boots’ impeccable quality and unmatched durability made them the perfect fit for a different sport, though - motorcycle racing. Alpinestars quickly found its niche in the two-wheeled market, and relationships with pro riders like Roger De Coster helped launch the small Italian company onto the world-wide market.
Today, over 50 years since its founding, Alpinestars has mastered the balance between its past and its future – tradition and innovation. Their legacy of motorcycle racing and their roots in Italian artistry are stitched into every garment, along with the most progressive technology available in the industry.
With gear available for every riding discipline, as well as a versatile casual line, Alpinestars continues to build its legacy as an industry-leading apparel manufacturer and a champion of rider safety.

I have had many different boots over my 25 + years of motocross and none have been even close to as good as any of the Alpinestars I have had. The latest one's(tech 5's) are the most comfortable of all the boots I have worn. They are almost shoe like comfortable. I have had the one's with the booties and prefer these over them. They fit my feet well, which are on the narrower side. If you have wider feet these are probably not the best choice, but if you have narrower feet these should be near the top of your list for boot choices.Read All Reviews

I’ve mainly worn alpine stars since I started riding 14 years ago. Everything from Tech 3,7, and 8’s. Never was a fan of the buckles though, as after a long day all I want to do is remove them from my feet. Everybody knows I’m sure the old buckle design is incredibly annoying, and had to be removed with riding gloves still on to avoid ripping a nail off by applying the correct amount of pressure to release the buckles. I had always looked past this annoying feature because of the amazing build quality of the boots, and the comfort level of wearing something that is designed to restrict movement of the ankle and toe box. However the new buckle design, plus the immediate comfort I experienced sliding into these tech 5’s is unprecedented. The tech 5 is now on the level of Gaerne quality and comfort fit. I highly recommend giving these a consideration, especially as a viable option over the more expensive brands like Sidi, Gaerne, and Fox premier line of boots.Read All Reviews

Back, shoulder and arm protection is really good, chest protection was non existent. It would have been a really nice protective jacket of the front protection was the same as the back. I ended up returning the item.Read All Reviews
