Alpinestars Faster Shoes 4.5 5 23 23
Great shoe - bad grip on sand or in wet. So I have had these for roughly 9 months, and I commute with them every few days. I would recommend these, if they had the following improvements. Modify the laser ablated grip to something that doesn't turn into a slick in 6 months. The Altama combat boots I have are much better at sticking in sand or the wet than these things. I have to do a two-step tango in sand or wet pavement so as to not drop the bike. So, they FAIL THEIR PRIMARY FUNCTION, which means they are a DO NOT BUY. In all other areas they excel. Two walking around in these hurts after a few hours, so I corrected this with a gel heel insert. If Alpinestars makes these improvements I'll certainly buy another pair, however if the laser ablated grip stays, I'll be shopping for another product. April 16, 2015
GREAT BOOTS Boots fit perfectly, able to switch gears easily and are comfortable enough for walking around. Sizing was perfect and they arrived in just a couple of days. March 27, 2015
good boot, good price. Only problem I have with these boots is that there is pretty much no tread on the bottom which can be fairly slippery. March 23, 2015
great product excellent product to use in the city and short trips March 2, 2015
I love these shoes I was looking for something for shorter rides that are as comfortable off the bike as on and these are perfect. They have good protection in the right spots and once im off the bike I forget im not wearing normal shoes. They are a bit narrow out of the box but after a few wears they fit like a glove. December 23, 2014
Great Shoe for People with Narrow Feet This shoe is very comfortable and quite flexible for a motorcycle shoe, so it's easy to walk around in. I wouldn't mind some more padding in the heal of the shoe, but since it's a motorcycle shoe that's not likely to happen. The shoe definitely runs narrow, but I have very long, narrow feet, which makes them a perfect fit for me. I bought these because I was looking for a shoe that has a slim toe profile because having big feet means my toes tend to catch on the shift lever which the slim toes minimize. November 10, 2014
Tight fit, shoes runs small Great look, brought for riding my R1 2012, love the design but shoe fits very small in the toe box area. Trying walk around in them and break them in. Other than that show looks good. August 11, 2014
Great Shoes I think these are really good riding shoos for the buck. I have always worn Alpinestar and have never been disappointed. I bought the black version and they look great riding. they are also very comfortable to walk in (haven't walked long distance but till don't think I would if I got my bike with me). The shoes fit a little tight luckily I bough half a size larger when I read the other reviews. I recommend you do the same. August 9, 2014

M S: This is my first riding boot/shoe. Because I have large feet, I need something with reasonably small/low profile toe to keep from catching my foot on the shift lever. For the money, this seems like a good product and they are supposed to be pretty flexible/comfortable for walking in unlike other more robust/stiffer shoes. The review video on Revzilla led me to choose this shoe. Aug 6, 2014

Binh N asked: why does the sole look so flat? how is the grip compared to say...normal sneakers? Jul 12, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
William J: The grip is very good because it is not a smooth flat bottom. It has a certain texture to it from the way the soles are made that give solid traction on any surface that isn't ice or wet metal. They give me a good steady grip on the pavement and great feedback on the pegs and the shifter. I've used them in the rain a few times and they aren't any worse than sneakers in terms of reaction in those conditions. Just be careful putting your foot on road paint if the ground is wet. But that should be common sense for any shoe/boot. Hope that helps! Jul 12, 2014

JOHN W. H: As far as the sole looking flat, yes it is, but in the middle of the arch when your feet are on the pegs you can feel how the sole feels like it's wrapping around the peg. As far as grip, it is better than I expected, much better, but if you want to play basketball or go jogging then buy the appropriate shoe...these are comfortable to wear doing alot of things but when I'm on the bike they are on me.

Mark D: These have really great grip. I normally wear skate shoes or athletic style shoes and the grip on the Alpinestars far exceeds both. The shoe is very flexible and grips very well on your pegs. I will also point out that the sole is pretty thin which helps it to flex and you will certainly feel your pegs on your feet. It's not uncomfortable but noticeable compared to normal harder sole riding boots. Jul 12, 2014

Daniel R: The material they use has decent grip. The only issue I've found is during wet weather. At stop lights, you'll have to be careful not to slip on the asphalt when you put your feet down. Overall, I like the shoes and I've received a lot of compliments. They have a great look and feel. And I'm rarely caught in the rain, so I don't have many issues. Jul 13, 2014

Blake P: You can really feel the controls with the shoe. Regular sneakers depending on the sole, sometimes your foot may drag on the foot pegs or you can't move as freely. The flat bottom on these allows you to feel the controls better. The shoe also offers good protection. Less than a racing boot but more than a regular shoe. Jul 12, 2014
Reply to Blake Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Daniel V: The soles are kind of textured and slightly rough. They are fine for the most part, but I wouldn't recommend them for regular use in wet conditions. I don't ride in the rain, and these are the only shoes I use. Great for every other situation. Jul 12, 2014

A shopper asked: Hello everyone

I ride a cruiser but prefer the level of protection offered by sport bike gear. My question is would these boots be suitable for highway speeds ( 110km/hr). I know the video states good for around town and city so are they no good beyond 70 km say?

Thanks

Michael G: I've owned 2 pairs of these shoes and to be honest they are only good for 2-3 months max, if you plan on wearing them on a daily basis the rubber soles wear quickly and the amount of ankle support and protection is not what I would ideally want in a unfortunately event or crash. If you want my honest opinion I would say pay the extra couple dollars and get the Dianese, my buddy had a pair last year and they had a stiffer sole and much more ankle support. That's what I'm doing this year, they have a pair that look very similar to the Astar. Hope this help! Feb 26, 2015

Mike B: I have a 600rr and used these shoes to ride them all over the place, highway and street. I never went down in them so I cant say how much protection they will give you at 100mph. It's definitely not going to protect you feet as much as boots would but these are better then just wearing regular shoes.

Honestly its your call. I love these shoes and wear them if I am riding or not. You are giving up some protection for their lightness but I found them to be enough to use them for whatever I was doing.

Daniel V: These shoes are great, even at very high speeds. I would not factor that in to my decision at all. My only complaint is the soles can be slippery when wet, especially when standing on painted road indicators. Other than that, these are great. Feb 26, 2015

Jason A: I like the boots. They do have decent ankle protection, but would classify them as mid-grade to comprensate for comfort/flexibility. The boots are good for wearing all day. Certainly would handle 70-100kmph. Feb 26, 2015

A shopper asked: Hi All,

I wear a size 11 Nike (USA), is this about the same size fitment? I'm not sure whether to go with a 10.5 or 11!

Thanks!

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Patrick P: If you wear an 11 you may want to go up to a 11.5 these shoes fit kinda slim in the toe area of the shoe which makes for a tighter fit, I would recommend going up a half size. I wear a 12 and I purchased 12.5 and the fit a little tight until I began to wear them more and loosen up around the toe area, also it depends on the type of socks you choose to wear, if they were to big you could always wear a thicker sock. I wear both and they fit fine for me. I hope this helps! Jul 15, 2014

John P: Greetings,

I wear size 10.5 USA Nike and I initially purchased the Alpine Stars Faster shoes in 11 because the size guide says it runs about a half size small. I received these shoes in 11 just to find out they were too small. I returned them and ordered the 11.5 and they fit perfectly.

Conclusion - If you wear size 11 USA Nike shoes, you wear size 12 USA Alpine Stars Faster shoes!

Good luck!

glen r: I also have a wide foot and these seem to only come in one width. With that said, they are a little bit tight at first, but not because they are too narrow. they feel a bit slim in terms of height up front. Once they break in though, they feel amazing. Apr 7, 2014

Welcome to our detailed breakdown of the new Alpinestars Faster Riding Shoes, available at RevZilla.com. So, in front of me you see three versions of the Faster, and keep in mind the Faster is the next generation of riding shoe from Alpinestars, taking the place of the Fastlane, which has done so well for the last few years.  Now, if you look at it, three versions in front, black, white, red.  I have my all black version, and this is actually the vented version, which is a different product page, watch a different video. Again, there's going to be that vent version, which is going to flow more air for summer-time riding.  I'm going to take that boy and move it right over there.

Diving into the boot itself though, remember, two to three season riding, casual riding shoe, meant to really have a great style touch to it, with lightweight protection. This is not a hardcore riding boot. This is really a riding shoe, which it can allow you to walk on the bike, off the bike, it's going to look great under a pair of jeans, in and around town, very flexible, a six on the stiff scale, so we've got to keep that in mind guys. Now, if we look at the changes versus the Fastlane, here with the new Faster, one is very easy to notice, and the others are actually subtle, but I'm a big fan of what they've done while remaining at that just over $100 price point.  Now, the first one is this big T.P.R. lateral slider. It's now one unit, its connected, its dual stitch, it's going to give you a little bit of better, low side protection on the lateral side of the toe box.

Now from there, the other changes are hard to notice, but they are actually great. The strap at the top is going to be in a new place.  It's going to be higher up, giving you a little more support, and it is going to tuck away more nicely under a pair of riding pants or jeans. The other thing that I love a lot is that they have done these lateral and medial hard parts now that are baked in.  The previous version just had a T.P.R. rubber area. It did not have anything hard in any of this area around the ankle, which is just so important. Now again, the toe box on this bad boy is still really low profile, and it is really soft, not a lot of reinforcement there, but they've also managed to reinforce the heel cuff here, and again this is the same boot.  I just have my black version here, a little bit beefier around the heel, definitely beefier around the ankle, but again, the biggest thing you are going to notice from a style standpoint is it is slightly changed and this T.P.R. is going to be slightly different.

Now, taking a step back Alpinestars typically, no problems with the American foot.  Again, I wear about a nine and a half, I'm in a 43. I don't have any issues there. If you are concerned about fit, remember we ship for free, no issues. As always though, click here, subscribe with us at RevZilla TV.  I would love to hear your comments, your questions, and your feedback on the new Faster from AlpineStars. Now, diving back into the boot, kind of breaking it down top to bottom.  I am going to bring my black version over there. Remember, there is a waterproof version of this bad boy as well, but that one is a bit more of an investment, that is going to be another product video at RevZilla.com, keep that in mind guys.

Looking at it, microfiber, which is this synthetic leather on the outside, almost this suede in its appearance, with this different style seam for this here, which is dual stitched up the side. Moving to the inside, it almost has this carbon fiber design to it, but it's not carbon fiber.  It's not hard or anything.  It again is just this synthetic microfiber.  You can see your laces are going to have eyelets that have reflective baked in, which is a nice touch, and on that vented version it is going to be a mesh tongue. But again, rounded laces, hopefully a better chance to stay away from your controls, but they are exposed. Again, remember it is going to be a pretty basic shoe. We've talked about the Velcro straps across the top, which is now beefier, and it's a little bit higher up on the shoe.  Mesh on the inside, and moving one more time to the back, they've redesigned the reflective panel. It is no longer two bars, it is a single bar with an Alpinestars logo.  Then moving into the sole, you are going to see a laser ablated sole here.  Very, very flexible, has a little bit of traction.

This is really an F1-style riding shoe, built for basic street riding in and around town, on and off the bike. Casual collection, you almost need to name it part of the Rideout Collection, but again, from here, there's a ton of boots in the Alpinestars boot and shoe collection.  There's the Joey. There are different boots that are more riding shoe centric, but then if you want something more technical, you are going to move into that SMX1. Remember, vintage version, non-vented based version, which is the video you are watching, and then there is the waterproof version.
