Manufacturing motorcycle gear for nearly 50 years, Alpinestars has established itself as a leader in the industry in terms of protection and style for serious sportbike riders and racers. They settle for nothing less than the finest in Italian workmanship, utilizing the finest in materials and innovative technologies. The same holds true for the Alpinestars Ridge Waterproof Boot. This 3/4 length boot is built for ADV Touring and city riding, and looks great under a pair of jeans. That's a great deal of versatility for a boot that you simply don't find at this price point.
Let me go over some of the specs on this boot. The outer construction is fully-coated Italian leather atop a 100% waterproof breathable membrane that will keep your foot dry in rainy conditions but allow perspiration to escape through, keeping your foot cool and comfortable. There is an injection-molded PU heel counter which supports and protects the heel with plasticized disks that protect the ankle. The newly designed midsole contours to the shape of the foot and utilizes a structured steel shank reinforcement and internal toe counters for protection. All of the protective elements have achieved CE certification.
For creature comforts, AStars added achilles flex zones for ankle comfort and a removable anatomic footbed with multi-density EVA foam padding. Basically, the thickness and rigidity of the foam is variable depending on the area of the foot. This ensures a snug yet super-comfortable fit. There is also a velcro adjuster at the instep for that added level of comfort.
