The Review

The first thing you notice when using them for the first time is the amount of air they let in, a real plus point given the unusually hot and extended summer we have experienced this year in the UK!

They look and feel slimmer than other boots we have tested making them easily fit under a pair of jeans, comfortable and snug fit from the first time we wore them, on and off the bike!

A great short summer boot and very stylish too, as you’d come to expect from Alpinestars, we LOVE them, five stars from classic-motorbikes.net!
