Alpinestars SMX-6 V2 Drystar Boots - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Beautiful fit and comfortable
Wear size 8 shoes so went for the euro equivalent and was a great fit. Nice and snug - comfortable and wasnt as daunting riding whilst collecting my first motorcycle. Very firm but comfortable to walk around in. Only negative i can think of is that the zipper just gets stuck to the Velcro along the seam when fastening. Is that much of a problem - not really. Definitely recommend
Exceptional Alpinestars quality. I have size 9 (43) wide feet and always by size 44 (9.5) Fit is perfect. Not been able to test the Drystar quality but as a pair of boots go these are top notch. The alpinestars shin protection design gets some getting used to though. After years of wearing Side vertebrae the SMX-6 was a shock to my jeans ( wearing them over the top ) Highly recommended though.
Waterproof close fitting all year round road and b
This is my 2nd set of smx-6 drystars. They are close fitting. Slightly narrow. Which suits me. I have also had smx-5 and 4 boots. I ride all year round in all weathers. They're 100% waterproof. They provide good support with a comfortable inner.
Super Quality and Comfort from Alpinestars
I've always found Alpinestars boots to be really comfortable and these SMX 6 Drystars are no exception , a sporty looking boot that looks great on my MT10 but would also work so we'll on a GS been waterproof with all day comfort, haven't tried them in wet weather yet but previous reviews suggest they work a treat. Would suggest potential buyers try a pair on before purchasing as getting foot round neck of boot is a bit tight until they supple up at bit with use. Try them on , then order from SPORTSBIKESHOP as the service is excellent ????????
Good boot very comfy, normally a size 43 in everything but after carefully looking at reviews went a size up. Felt a bit big and wellington boot like, however, bought some insoles and now they feel fine so its a tough call on sizing up or not. Only other niggle is that right of the top of the boot they are very wide back to front and I struggle to get textile clothing to fit on the outside of the boot.
Comfortable from the off...
Replacements for my 4 year old SMX-6 Gore-Tex boots. Easier to get on due to the expansion panel & super comfortable once on, sizing is good. No need to break-them in, wore them for 6 hours straight off no problems. Not as hot for your feet as the Gore-Tex version even in the recent bank holiday heatwave. Luckily not tried them in the rain as yet so can't comment on how waterproof they are. As usual excellent service from Sportsbike shop, next day delivery & best price around.
All too easy
Bought as a replacement for my worn out SMX-S set. The SMX-6's are really tight to get on as the opening isn't as big as in the SMX-S''s but once they're on, OMG are they comfortable. Not worn them in the rain yet so can't comment on the "waterproofness". SBS were out of stock when I ordered them but this was made very clear before I paid. I got an email when they were expected back in stock, when they were then in stock, when they were sent and then another with a 1 hour delivery slot on my delivery day. Faultless service.
I only bought these because my mate has them...
It's true. I'm not even ashamed. I have an Alpinestars problem. That aside, these are the most comfortable boots I've ever owned. The lining is thick. The leather is supple and allows a pretty unbelievable amount of movement for a bike boot and it only gets better with use. They do squeak a little so you can't be creeping up on the biker chick you've had your eye on for months but at least when you pluck up the plums to talk to her you'll have an ice breaker I guess...
Lovely boots fitted perfect no need to break in.. Quality looks good. Cannot comment on how waterproof they are as have not been out in the rain yet with the boots on. So more than happy with these boots, great styling, decent make and very comfy.
Good but not great
Comfortable, waterproof, but then they should be, you're paying for it. Good protection though a bit over bulky shin protector. There's a little too much flexy panel at the front and not enough in the way of design. Reinforced heel is good and strong. The side protector sits different on one of the boots and the toe sliders fit poorly at one end. The boots will do what they are meant to, but I wouldn't recommend them. I think my old SMX5's are a better boot.
Couldn't ask for anything better. Kept me totally dry in a massive downpour recently. Super comfy straight away. A little stiff to start but a few rides in and I'm used to them no problems. Finish is fantastic. Proper quality boot for A stars, would highly recommend!
Perfect straight out the box
Super comfy straight out the box. No breaking in or squeaking just good quality. I haven't worn these in heavy rain yet but have worn them in nearly freezing temperatures and my feet stayed nice and warm. They also feel nice and solid.
Very waterproof boots
These were bought to replace an ageing set of SMX5's which had to issue of not being waterproof, that is certainly not a problem these boots have. Having ridden from Calais to Assen in heavy rain my waterproofs had pretty much given out and the only part of me that remained dry was my feet. These boots are brilliantly waterproof as well as being comfortable and practical.
