Alpinestars J-6 Waterproof Shoe - Black / White
Customer Product Reviews
These shoes are good, I returned them as they dug in my ankle but I think that could be more my anatomy. There is a fold where the waterproof liner engages with the tongue, this has a lot more material than on a normal shoe. I've had similar troubles in the past with shoes that have this style. The overall quality is nice and had it not been for that I would have kept them. Great service from sportsbikeshop. Super quick delivery.
Comfortable and stylish with jeans
Well made and looks really good with jeans. Comfortable and easy to shift gears. Sturdy enough to not feel points on adventure bike foot pegs. Only criticism is that the laces are very long and there is no Velcro to keep them safe.
These are extremely comfortable and a great fit. Look great and can even be worn while not on my bike! I prefer the casual look so these go great with my Kevlar Jeans and Hoodie.. extremely happy and a better price here than anywhere else. super fast delivery.. 10/10
Versatile and low profile
They're suprisingly comfortable and sleek. I've actually worn these when I went out with some friends and didnt stand out at all. The leather feels really sturdy so I'm more than sure that these will keep the skin on my feet intact if worse comes to worst. 10/10 would recommend.
Would buy these purely on looks!
If I spotted these great looking shoes in any high street shop, I'd still buy them because they look that good! That fact that they are specifically designed for biking is a bonus. Look and feel great on or off the bike, with the familiar quality from Alpinestars.
Delivered quick next day, quality of the shoes where much better then I expected, snug fit had to wear a few times to loosen them up a bit. Got half a size larger than my normal shoes. Really comfortable I choose to wear these more then my regular boots.
Get you a shoe that can do both.
Nice quality shoe that feels comfortable straight out of the box. The feel more protective than a standard ankle boot, but I still have my doubts how much more so than that of my old caterpillars.. Still a lovely boot, comfortable both on and off the bike and they look great too. Easy purchase.
So far so good, I brought these as one season summer shoes that will provide some level of protection should the worst happen. They feel very well made and of excellent quality. They are really comfortable, I've not tested nor am I interested in if they are waterproof, if it's likely to rain I'd wear different boots. I went for a size 44 whereas I'm a 45 in my other 2 pairs of Alpinestar star boots, they come up big (I sent the 45's back) excellent service as always from SBS.
2nd time i have purchased these boots, 1st pair lasted me over 3 years and have only just started wearing away so perfect time to replace them! They work perfect if you're using them all year and looks the part! Highly recommended them to anyone who prefers these sorta boots to proper road or track boots!
Feel and look great
I brought these Alpinestars because they looked great and now I've got them I'm really happy with them. They are very good looking but more importantly they are so comfy. There is a generous padding at the back and feel sturdy enough for gear changes. So far so good.
Comfortable and protected
I bought these shoes to go with my armoured Kevlar jeans and hoodie for the urban look. The shoes look fantastic on and are very comfortable, they feel like a normal pair of trainers when worn in (about a week) But you can tell your feet and ankles will be protected in the event of a accident, obviously you not going to be as protected if you were wearing proper motorcycle boots but they feel sturdy enough. I am unaware of the waterproof capabilities due to not having ridden in the rain as yet. The only draw back with them is the length of the laces which are far to long, could easily get caught in chain and sprockets if came undone, just remember to either double bow them and tuck them in or invest in some shorter laces, other than that I recommend this product.
