When the Alpinestars S-MX 5 motorcycle boots were launched, they immediately became the benchmark street boots for sports bike and naked bike riders. And, it’s not difficult to see why:

The protective features had been enhanced with a small rear fin and exaggerated heel shell to protect from Achilles damage; this feature had been taken from the race circuit straight to the Alpinestars sports boot range.

New Alpinestars clip-on toe sliders easily clipped in for replacements and unclipped in a crash to avoid secondary injury from snagging against the ground.

A new foot bed and redesigned sole meant immediate comfort and the expanded flex zones front and back made these boots not just great on the bike, but also in the paddock.

Throw in that they simply looked great on and were priced highly affordably below the £200 mark, Alpinestars had got itself a winning footwear option with the S-MX 5 boots; Seen as the leading product in the market, the S-MX 5’s position as a benchmark in sportsbike footwear was not really threatened until the arrival of the Alpinestars S-MX 6 boots.
The Alpinestars S-MX 6 boots are the latest addition to the line-up serving the sportsbike and naked bike riders, and are available as a regular street boot, a waterproof street boot or a Gore-Tex street boot.
