Alpinestars SMX Plus Vented Boots For superior safety and freedom of movement, the 2011 Alpinestars SMX Plus Boot features an innovative Multi Link Control system and high modulus TPU protection integrated into the sleek profile of the boot. The inner Kevlar speed lacing closure and micro-adjustable ratchet fastener combine to ensure a comfortable, conforming fit on both the road and track. Features Forefoot laminated with shock absorbing open cell foam while the ankle area has a highly breathable lining for improved comfort. Alpinestars unique Multi Link Control System provides advanced support for the ankle, limiting hypertorsion, hyper-extension and hyper- flexion as well as providing additional impact protection to the ankle and Achilles. Wide, ventilated, heel counter extends to the ankle and is combined with a shock absorbing padded insert and self-molding foam ankle protectors. Replaceable heel slider and external side heel slider are positioned to dissipate shock and promote sliding during an accident. Newly designed, replaceable TPU toe slider with snap-in assembly provides more coverage around the toe area Perforated leather construction makes this boot ideal for warm weather conditions Note The image of white/black/yellow boot shows a non-perforated boot, the actual boot being sold will be perforated for airflow like the other colorways.

Nice looking boot, comfortable and decent protection. I bought a size 42 boot and usually wear size 8.5 in USA (I can squeeze in size 8) and they are a bit big. The result of which is a slight loss in 'feel' at the pegs. I would have probably been happy with a smaller size.
I got vented and notice a gentle flow of air into the front of the boot. As I don't plan to ride in the rain (who does?), I am happy with the vented version.
I've been riding with these for about a month, and only once did I not bring them with me. This is a testament to how easy they are to put on and their comfort. The soles of the boots are fairly thin, so they (soles) will wear out prematurely if you plan on walking a lot with them.
Yes, I recommend this product.
