Alpinestars Supertech-R Vented Boots Alpinestars Supertech R boot is the newest high performance/racing boot, constructed with hi-tech micro-fiber and designed to meet light weight and performance requirements in top level racing. The front flex area is constructed with a soft TPU mesh with shaped reliefs for abrasion resistance and natural forward and back movements. Flexible accordion synthetic leather at Achilles allows natural movement. Top gaiter follows leg contour and is made of flexible high-grade synthetic leather reinforced with rubber for maintaining shape. Full length micro-fiber panel on inner side of the boot provides a smooth surface for excellent grip and feel against the bike and protects from abrasion and heat. A lightweight rubber compound sole offers excellent grip and feel and allows for natural flex as the rider changes position and pressure on the foot-peg. Strategically positioned ventilation in heel and shin TPU, and soft TPU mesh on forefoot guides air through the boot. The separate inner boot works with outer boot to form a protective system and external TPU shin protection wraps around to outer calf and is engineered to spread and dissipate impact energy across the entire surface while remaining compact. Clip-on toe-slider provides excellent feedback and protects the outer toe box structure from abrasion. (Upgradeable to a magnesium slider). Replaceable TPU heel plate slider protects from impact and reduces friction in the event of an off. Outside entry/exit has stretch accordion panel for a close fit and ease of entrance and removal. Bio-mechanical ankle bracing boot has double hinged inner and outer torsion bars to progressively absorb flex and rotation stress on the ankle and reduce pressure and hyper extension injury to lower leg joints. Inner ankle brace constructed with fiberglass charged polyamide and ergonomically designed closed cell padding for protection and comfort. Features Extremely protective, flexible and comfortable with excellent aerodynamics Vented sections promote airflow into the boot Flexible, lightweight toe shifter allows feel for changing gears Zip mounted on accordion stretch panel gives easy closure with excellent fit Velcro tab lock the zip pull closed, keeping it flat and secure Micro adjustable ratchet top closure stows tab end inside calf TPU Polyamide compound moldings around foot bed provide impact protection Removable anatomic footbed is sculpted for precision fit SUPERTECH R is CE certified

I started out riding with Hiking boots for daily use during the summer and decided to get a set of these for daily/track use. I needed some extra protection for the street and wanted something that would last to track/street abuse. I have had them for around month and I am really glad I decided to buy them.
Fit/Sizing: I normally wear anywhere between a 11 (Adidas sambas) and 10.5 US shoe size. The fit on mine were a tiny bit big in length (about 1/4 of an inch) but the width were spot on. I can feel a tiny bit of space in the booties but once you put the outer boot on they fit pretty well, a larger pair of socks solved the issue for me.
Airflow: They keep my feet pretty dry for a half an hour commute in 107 degree heat, and are really comfy.
Comfort: The inner booties feels like you are wearing a pair of slippers, and once you put the outer shell on it gives it some nice support. The outershell is nicely flexible and doesn't feel overbearing at all.
Build Quality: Stitching is really superb, zippers are nice and easy to pull up and down and the Velcro is a nice touch. The inner booties bottoms are slightly thin, but looks like they are not really made to be walked around in a bunch but would stand up to carpet no problem. Leather is really nice, and the inner booties is super light and really solid. I haven't had a chance to test the sliders but will report back once I do.
Function:Going in and out of the outer shell with the booties is super easy, they fit really firm inside, no sliding around at all and the boot feels as if its 1 whole boot. It makes for really easy cleaning and allows you to air out the boot if your feet are super sweaty. I initially thought that having two separate parts to the boot would be a pain, but I really enjoy the positives and having to put both on is really worth the minor inconvenience.
Overall a great set of boots for the price and really like the added feature of having a serrate inner booties.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have been using these for my daily ride for about a month now, they are pretty awesome in the AZ summer so far. They have been really durable for the sweat that has been put into them, also they do a great job at keeping my hands from getting really sweaty. Overall I am really glad I purchased them over the lower model, the extra protection and features are great for the small price bump.
Fit: The fit is pretty tight initially and broke in really well, I usually wear a Large (mechanics and nitrile gloves) and the larges i bought were spot on.
Airflow: Even in the AZ summer the airflow through these is really nice, I can tell because they keep my hands mostly dry instead of trapping in the moisture in it lets the moisture flow out.
Leather: The leather is super soft, smells really nice too and ls nice and malleable
Finish: The finish is really superb, stitching is done really well and looks like its going to last a long time.
I am expecting these to preform just as well at the track when I go later this month and glad I upgraded from textile gloves for the extra protection.
Yes, I recommend this product.
