Alpinestars Supertech R Boots - Black / Fluo Yellow / White
Customer Product Reviews
The best boots
I have tried many boots in my time, but for me nothing else compares to Alpinestars. Recently upgraded to the Supertech R and yet again the bar has been raised. Very comfy to walk about in, in between track day sessions. High level of protection, and they look the dogs danglies!
Feel like slippers, protects like knights armour
Fit out of the box is incredible, I've never known another bootbrand to be so easy on the foot when new. Inner boot is like a slipper and holds well inside the outer with no slippage. Outer boot is fast to do up, very well protected and feels just the right size on the bike. They fit perfectly, didn't cost the earth and are the best boots I've ever ridden. They also look great (I went for Ninja black but you can get all sorts and even Moto GP limited edition ones) so they pretty much are perfect. Nice job AS and awesome service and delivery from SBS.
I've bought these boots after reading a lot of good reviews and I wasn't disappointed, they are so comfy right out of the box and the quality is excellent. They are a very big size though, i'm a 48/49 in normal footwear and a 46 fit me perfect. I would definitely recommend.
The Boots to have. Thank you SBS
I so wanted the Sidi ST so much as I thought they looked awesome and a great mid range Track boot. I am size 9 and so I bought a 9.5 following the advice of a size up. No matter how many times I walked the living room carpet, they niggled at the toe and lifted in the heal. I read the reviews on the SuperTech R - Best decision I made. Bought a 9 and fitted like they were meant for me. Its only when you get these boots on you realise what you are getting for that extra money and the R&D that has gone into them. I wore them around the house and forgot I had Race boots on. Wore on the bike and felt great on the bike, and walking around like I had them for years. Protection is awesome and best investment in years.
Super Comfy Supertech R's
I have had two pairs of SIDI boots before these and although they were good and pretty comfortable these are so so comfortable you do feel like your riding in your favorite trainers, And from the first time I put them on and they just seem to be getting better. They are easy to get on and off once you get used to them. Highly recommended .
Supertech R Boots
After sticking with race oriented boots in the past I decided to try these based mainly on reviews, and thanks to Sportsbikeshop's heavy discounting. I have to say they are excellent the inner sock makes them feel comfortable straight away and you can actually walk in them! If you have to that is very happy.
Simply amazing value for money. This the best fitting boot I've tried to date, the inner boots are on par with slippers they're that comfy. The amount of protection on the inner boot alone is staggering! The boots themselves come with all the bells and whistles you'd expect from Alpinestars and they look and feel great! Recommend these to a friend who bought some and was equally as impressed as me! Great all-round service for the sportsbikeshop
Supertech R Boots
These boots are unbelievably comfortable and are by far the best boots I've ever had in 30 years of bike riding. They are well made, and should be for the price. They offer good protection and the new metal toe sliders and heel plate are a great improvement in the old plastic ones. What does let the boots down is that the side zip is really awkward to do up and if you have leather that go down to your ankle this is made even more problematic, which isn't great as the alpinestars racing leathers I have do just that. This means you have to pull the leathers up slightly to get the boots over them. Not a major issue but is rather annoying. I'd highly recommend these boots as they can be worn all day, and walked in, with comfort. If you have the money, and don't have leathers that go down to your ankle, buy them! You won't regret it
Great pair of boots
After a hit and run I needed to replace my SMX plus boots and decided to go for the Supertech-R as they have good reviews and don't have the external brace that tends to catch on heel plates. Unfortunately I haven't been able to ride in these boots yet due to injury but I was able to walk with a 4 week old break in my ankle due to the internal brace and support, they are also really comfortable. Putting the inner boot on and then the outer is a bit of an arse but once this has been done a couple of times you find the knack for doing it and it gets easier. The boot feels solid and although they feel heavier than the SMX when holding them its not noticeable when wearing them. Just hope they are as impressive on track/road as they are in my living room.
Super protective slippers
I used to wear Sidi/RST boots in the past...but I'm now fully converted to these. The colour combo looks far better in reality than the pics. It feels like you are wearing a pair of slippers. Top quality boots, with a good level of protection, all day comfort...a price match to boot!
Absolutely brilliant boots
I was somewhat apprehensive spending nearly £400 on boots, but after purchasing some cheaper (£250) boots initially and not being happy with the fit I decided to bite the bullet. I'm glad I did - the key difference is the main armour is on the inside of the boot, therefore there is no real breaking in process, they just fit and are very comfortable. I've even used them in the rain and although not advertised as waterproof they do make a good effort to keep the rain out. Fantastic quality and hope these will last me a few years. They do have a wider box section, so suit those with wider feet, but are true to size unlike SIDI, etc.
