Alpinestars S-MX 5 Boots - Black
Customer Product Reviews
2nd set of these - still great!
Used a set of SMX5's since I started biking about 6 years ago and they lasted for that whole time through normal road riding, commuting, touring and trackdays. Only had to replace them as I managed to wear through the toe sliders and put a hole in a boot after my last 3 day euro trackday (rider at fault, not boots!) so bought another set. Fit is great, bit tight to begin with but I know they wear in well. I had the Alpinestars waterproof (I.e. not Goretex) before and they were absolutely fine and not sweaty or smelly even after 6 years. I've gone for the non waterproof ones this time as I rarely ride in the rain so hoping they'll be just as good and not any different in terms of quality!
Alpinestars S-MX 5 Boots
Another great product from Alpine. Sizing was perfect had no problems, fitted from the first time. Had the chance to test them in the heavy rain - 100% waterproof and kept my feets dry all the time. Easy to put on and take it off.
Well made quality boots
Well made with a good quality feel. I found my usual size was a tight fit, so it is worth trying or buying a larger size. Luckily this was no problem with Sportsbikeshop with their simple and free returns. The boots don't have any vents, which is good in the wet and cold but might be warm in summer. Good strong panels around the heel and lower shin. Affordable quality boots!
A quality product
Next day delivery was spot on, boots arrived at allocated time slot. First impressions are good, they're a quality product. Slightly stiff when first used, not a criticism, but looking forward to them becoming a bit more supple. They are quite a narrow fit, so if you can try a pair on before you buy, all the better.
Got these to replace my last pair that had suatained damage in a accident but did the job and saved my feet and ankle in a fall. Again another pair of excellent boots, a bit fiddly to get the right size. These are again a lot larger in size to my normal shoe size but once sorted they are a good pair of boots.
The guys at Sportsbikeshop are nothing short of a miracle. Really helped me out with sorting out my order and kept me updated with when it was being sent and when payment had cleared. Had a little issue with PayPal but they really helped over the phone with what to do next. These people are absolutely incredible!!
I have always bought either Frank Thomas, Sidi or Alpinestars in the 16 years I have been riding and I always seem to gravitate back to Alpinestars. They seem to have the best fit, the most versatility and just seem to look the part whilst lasting as long as I need them. From the moment I put them on in the shop to when I used them on the bike they just seem bang on. They are light, comfy and have all the right protection in all the right places. Yes you can spend a lot of money on really expensive boots but I'm just using my Alpinestars for commuting and the odd occasional weekend ride out. I dare say though if I wanted to do a track day I would feel totally confident that they would so the job if the worst were to happen. Can't recommend these super awesome boots at a completely insane and affordable price, no brainer.
