    The Alpinestars Tech 8 RS Boots are a premium option in Astars’ off-road selection and a boot that’s different because it offers modern features in a classically styled MX boot. Of course the most defining feature of the Tech 8 is the old-school stitched sole, but Astars makes it just as capable as an overmolded sole by using dual-density rubber for superior grip and durable polymer for durability that easily holds up to sharp pegs.

    The upper uses a combination of flexible, abrasion-resistant material and TPU impact panels that wrap around the toe box, medial side of the foot, and the shin plate. There’s more protection on the rear of the boot from a large heel counter and a TPU glide plate that limits ankle hyperextension. On the inside, protection and comfort come from an inner bootie that supports your ankle by providing a precision fit and promotes ventilation with breathable mesh and synthetic materials.

    The ankle has additional padding via replaceable gel inserts that pad the bones of the ankle. A synthetic gaiter makes a tight seal at the top of the boot to keep dirt, mud, and debris out, and everything is locked down by a set of Astars’ "arrowhead" style buckles that are self-cleaning and self-aligning. With Alpinestars putting all these features into one boot, they’ve created one of the best traditionally styled MX boots currently available. And that make the Tech 8 RS one of the best boots for MX racers, enduro riders, or anyone that simply prefers the look and feel of a stitched-sole boot.

    Protection
  • Inner ankle sleeve constructed from leather with 3D mesh panels, incorporating adjustable shock absorbing gel inserts on the ankles and a removable anatomic footbed for enhanced comfort, fit, and protection on the ankle and lower leg.
  • Reinforced lateral flex zone above outward-facing ankle helps prevent torsion.
  • Contoured shin plate injected with high modulus polymer for superior impact and abrasion resistance is perforated for ventilation.
  • Contoured calf protector plate is injected with high modulus polymer for impact resistance.

  • Top and bottom reverse closure design provides superior impact protection and improved fit.
  • Low profile toe for improved control and sensitivity in the shift area.

  • Instep and Achilles flex zones for superior comfort, control, and support.
  • Soft, polymer gaiter provides effective seal around the top of the boot, preventing excessive water and dirt entry.
  • Breathable 3D tech mesh lining reduces heat buildup and improves comfort.

Garbage
Last pair i will ever buy. Last two pair of alpinestar boots have been trash. Always ran tech 8 boots and got a decent deal on tech 7s and i hated them. They only lasted 3 seasons so i went back to tech 8s and they lasted 2 years and are absolutely trashed. I do not race, just dual sport and trail ride. Used to get 5 to 6 years out of them. $500 waste of money

Love these boot!
Thank you RMATV for these wonderful boots. They are one of the best pairs of boots I have bought. Fit great, walking ability is awesome and the best part is when the sole breaks down you can send them into Apline and they will re-sole them.
Thank you RMATV for reaching out to me as well to make sure I purchased this item before they mailed my boots out to me.
I will continue to buy from these guys.
Great customer service, great prices and great parts.
Cheers!
Ben

bad experience
I have used alpinestar for 5 years. I had the tech 3 and tech 3 enduro models, and it went very well for me. But this tech 8 sr model has been destroyed in 4 months of use. I do not recommend.

Tech 8
Really nice boots, look good, and built well. The fit is a little tight, but they just need to be broken in. Working on that.

Best footware I own
So far after over a year of riding and a few races, these have held up excellent. After a good washing they almost look and feel brand new with a few marks here and there. The foot booties that come with them provide great comfort for a long day of riding and even a hike in the woods. Easy to strap on and adjust, and good ventilation. The only con is they aren't as water resistant as expected.

Not as good as old Tech 8's
It took 5 pairs to get ones without manufacturing holes. And then, within 4 months of owning them they began falling apart at the seams. If that was not enough, a few months later the inner leg rubber grip pieces are falling apart. At 1.4 years of having them (only ride in New England season) I need a new pair - switching brands unfortunately as I did really like my 2010 yr model.

Will the Tech 8 RS boot fit a wide foot and big calves?
Jennifer G on Dec 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don’t think so. I bought these for my dad and he has skinnier legs and narrow feet and they were a snug fit. I even bought him a size bigger than usual. I would say someone with bigger calves like me would have a hard time getting these boots to work
Can the insule ( inside the boot)be replaced on a pair of tech8?
bill M on Jul 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is a slipper / bootie that your foot rides in and this is replaceable I know because I have had to replace them before, there about $70,when the soles are replaced the bottom under the slipper/bootie is also new.
Vented? Only white ones are vented? Are they water proof?
Don C on Jul 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, only the white ones are vented. They have a soft, polymer gaiter provides effective seal around the top of the boot, preventing excessive water and dirt entry. So it is not fully waterproof.
