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.
