I wanted a street racing shoe not house slipper level protection
I bought these shoes in hopes for a riding shoe that adds protection verse running shoes/cowboy boots, but at the same time still looked casual enough to wear to work on Fridays with jeans. I ended up returning the shoes the next day and upgraded to the Alpinestars SMX 6 Vented Boots.

Pros:
- Style looks decently cool. Probably the main reason I bought them. My friend said they looked like basketball shoes mixed with wrestling shoes. But when riding, I should be more concerned with protection than style. It is, after all, the whole reason to get riding shoes.
- Ankle protection is better than standard running shoes with the high ankle support and slider on the side of the ankle.

Cons:
- The Faster shoe runs very small. I wear a size 11 in Nikes, 10.5 in Ariat boots, and 10 in Cole Haan Wingtips. I got this shoe in 10.5. The overall length of the shoe was about an inch shorter than my size 10 Cole Haans! The shoe makes your foot look very small and girly and doesn't look good in blue jeans as I was hoping (Maybe the white shoes would look better). Kind of cramped. Depending on the shoes you normally wear I would suggest getting 1/2 size to a full size bigger than normal or go with the largest size out of all the shoes you have. In my case I should have gone with the 11...minimum.

- Horrible Protection. Everywhere, except the ankle and heel, feels like there is no protection. Although they look nice, I felt like I slipped my foot into a cheap leather sock. The shoe felt way too flexible, and the leather/padding didn't feel thick or stiff enough around the foot to provide any impact protection. I thought there would be at least decent padding and thicker leather on the toe box where you would shift...not at all. Honestly, my Nike Shox felt like they had thicker leather and more protection than these in the entire foot area. It felt as if I would be shifting pretty much barefoot, and that my left big toe would get bruised from shifting on an hour+ ride. The toe slider is a joke, just a little thin piece of plastic. If you lowsided (which is the lesser violent crash) and your foot got caught under the bike, you'd probably break several toes and bones in your foot.
- Price is a little high for what you get. If I ever decide to get a pair of riding shoes again, these will not be it. I would rather buy the TCX riding "boot" with waterproofing and supposedly better protection for the same price and casual-basketball shoe style.

I returned these A* Faster Shoes the next day to Revzilla. Great customer service for product returns. VERY SIMPLE - just watch the returning process video by Anthony.

Kind of glad the Faster shoes were less than adequate for riding or else I wouldn't have decided to go with boots with more protection.
I ended up buying the new Vented Alpinestars SMX 6 boot which have full CE rated protection, look just as cool as the Faster shoes (only part that sticks out of jeans is below ankle anyways), and I can wear the SMX6s on the track or with leather plants if I decide to do so.

I see no point in buying shoes that can barely replace my Nike Shox and can't take to the track.

If you're thinking about getting these shoes, don't. Spend the extra cash and get some real racing boots with extra protection, that look just as good with jeans over them, and that you can take later to the track so you don't end up wasting $130 on shoes you could have put towards awesome boots you'll eventually want.

Awesome shoes. Took a week to break them in. Amazingly comfortable to the point that I wear them more than my regular shoes and look amazing with almost any attire. Highly recommend!

Great Shoe
I love these shoes. They protected my foot and ankle in a 40 MPH lowside on I-580 once. However I wouldn't trust these for anything heavy duty, the armor in them is very light, you really do need beefier boots but for light riding around town or short commutes these are awesome. The vented version is great in hot weather. Mine have been holding up over a year with not too much wear. The sole could be thicker but it hasn't worn through yet.

Great pair of casual riding shoes.
You need to be aware that these shoes are not really meant for track days. These are more of a casual riding shoe that is meant to be worn all day (and I have). If you understand these two issues, and this is the type of shoe you are looking for then you will not be disappointed.

This shoe is amazing. The fit is great and near dead on. For reference, I found it's approximately a 0.5 smaller size than New Balance and 0.5 larger than Reebok. The foot is fairly narrow though, so watch out if you have wide feet.

The look is also very good. When on, and with pants to cover the top portion with the Velcro straps, they look just like a pair of stylish men's boots and I've gotten many compliments on my 'boots' before people found out what they actually are. Additionally, they are very comfortable and they do come with a heel so they can be worn like any other shoe. I have worn these all day with no ill effect, and I sometimes wear them to work. They (the almost all black pair) are also good enough to pass as dress shoe substitutes as I've worn them to the office on numerous occasions.

The shoe secures nicely and stays that way as long as you wrap the laces into the Velcro.

The only real downside to these shoes (and I'm not sure if it's a downside to riding shoes in general) is the lack of any grip on the sole. Though, I've found that it's not really necessary.

Best Motorcycle Shoes
For something that is not an actual boot, these shoes compete very well with boots. They provide a lot of protection with all the built in safety features, while giving you some of the most comfortable shoes you have put your feet in. I would not recommend getting the vented shoes as these get enough air flow in hot temperatures, while being perfect for winter/rain if you don't live in an area that gets too cold. My shoe size normally ranges from 10-10.5 and so I decided to get the 10.5 because it seemed like they run small. At 10.5, the shoe is actually a little big on me, so I would recommend sticking to your actual size. These shoes just make everything feel easier and more natural on the bike, while giving me the confidence you would get by having safe gear on. I actually saved my bike from going down once by kicking out a foot as hard as I can, and managed to barely leave a scratch on these shoes. If you are debating between these and another shoe, the alpinestars are certainly the right choice.

Sleek
Very low key shoes, I used sharpie to black out the logo and white heel. so they wouldn't stand out as motorcycle shoes.. Gets a bit hot in them now that its summer, You can wear and walk in them, but wouldn't recommend having them on all day. Protection is fair, i don't think they would protect you much if a car was to run over your foot. However if you were to fall off your ankles would be protected. Lases and Velcro straps are a bit too long.

Nice looking but ...
I am trying to replace my TCX X-Cubed boots and just got these in. It's a really good looking shoe and very comfortable but lacks serious protection especially in the toe box area (really nothing there to protect the toes). The heel cup is also marginal. I realize these are riding shoes but I need more protection for better peace of mind.

I sent them back and now waiting on a pair of TCX X-Square Sport Boots. I called into the customer service line and the customer service rep (Alessandra?) was a tremendous help with the return along with the recommendation of a TCX replacement I was eyeballing

Hands down best e-commerce site on the web for motorcycle gear. Kudos to Anthony and your team. This is the kind of customer experience people want. I will continue to buy all my gear at Revzilla.

Fits like a pair of converse
Ordered this product in a 9.5 but had to get a size 10 because they do run a little narrow. All in all they look great and are comfortable, when you get the right size. Great for an everyday commuter who will be wearing these just as much off the bike as you will be on the bike.

Beautiful and durable shoes
I bought them last year, mostly for the look which got me a lot a compliments. But what a great pair of shoes! I used it year round in Georgia, rode all year but for 3-4 weeks in dec-jan. totally waterproof. I got caught in some nasty storms and my feet stayed totally dry. If you use big enough socks, your feet won't get cold too fast either. It was a little warm in the 100 degree summer heat, but very bearable. I rode 1000 miles last week, and the thin soles weren't killing me either.
But they are slippery! Be careful where you put your feets in the wet, they have a tendency to slip away from the bike. And although comfortable enough to walk around campus all week, these are no sneakers, and after a while your feet can hurt. Lastly, they are running very small, I ordered two sizes bigger and they were still to small, these are very narrow shoes.

Great style and comfort
I love the style, their nice looking with whatever Im wearing and their not too big and bulky to where I want to take them off when I get off my bike. Their comfortable to ride in and I can feel my gear shifts but not to much to be uncomfortable or annoying.

A tidy design. Clean looking. And reportedly a slightly narrower fit...I hope.

I am a new rider and am educating myself on the gear. The Revzilla "Decide and Ride" has been invaluable. These guys (Anthony) nailed it when they decided to post all the product reviews. This has been an awesome way to shop and decide.
I chose the AS Faster based on the cross functions of riding boot with protection along with the street wear-ability. The Faster appear to provide the protection needed for riding and the comfort for short walking distances. Plus the design color matches my gear.

I picked this item because its a very good looking shoes and I'm not a fan of too crazy stuff going on shoes i like them plain and clean. Also the logo on the ankle looks good with all the black around it. :)

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.
M S on Aug 6, 2014
Alpinestar Faster Shoes are very comfortable, and cool looking, I've gotten many comments about the style of these shoes at work.
quentin k on Jul 29, 2014
Wanted something other than tennis shoes to ride in...a bit more protection.

When is this great looking riding shoe going to be released?
nathan t on Mar 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They are currently only available for pre-order. According to our supplier, they will have these in stock by the end of March, so we at Revzilla should have them by mid April.
why does the sole look so flat? how is the grip compared to say...normal sneakers?
fridaynight on Jul 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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!
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
A shopper on Feb 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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!
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!
A shopper on Jul 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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!
So i'm thinking about getting these shoes for my first bike a Yamaha r3 to go to school and around town. Are the shoes worth it?
Brenden E on Oct 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I wear these daily to, from, and at work. ~ 20 min ride to an office job behind a desk. They are great summer shoes to have. The only time I don't wear them is on days below 45*. I have had them for over a year and have absolutely no complaints.
I'm curious as to width. I have a wide foot (EE) and I am wondering if those widths are available or they are just standard width? Thanks.
A shopper on Mar 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Are the insoles changeable?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, but I'm sure you can easily add inserts. Probably would make them a little tight.

Are these shoes vegan? i.e. are any animal parts used in their construction?
Pete M on Feb 15, 2016
How does the faster shoes compare in level of protection with astars Joey? Seems about the same.
A shopper on Apr 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They come up over the ankle and feel like regular tennis shoes but higher. I only wear them around town, usually riding a cafe racer.

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.
