Alpinestars Gran Torino Gore-Tex Boots 4.5 5 11 11
Excellent overall These boots were comfortable right out of the box. They have gotten even more comfortable with the wearing. i wanted a boot that was as comfortable walking in as riding in, while providing excellent protection, and these fit the bill exactly. The all-black color scheme make them blend nicely with regular clothing when off the bike. One could stand or walk around (even dance) for extended periods wihout discomfort. Protection is excellent on ankles and shinbone without creating discomfort in regular wear. Materials inside are soft and comfortable even with short socks. I have yet to test them in wet conditions on the bike, so I cannot comment on how effective the waterproofing is. Temperature inside is excellent on the bike, a bit warmish in regular wear. Overall an excellent product I highly recommend. August 31, 2014
Comfortable, subtle, all-round boot Got these boots as I wanted something full protection, that didn't look too crazy under a pair of riding jeans. First of all, I wear 10.5 in Nikes, and I measure 10.5E on a brannock device (Standard foot measuring device found at all shoe stores), and got the size 45 recommended on the size chart which fits perfectly. The 'E' in that measurement means I have a slightly wider foot than average, but this boot doesn't feel tight for me unlike another certain italian brand. Looks excellent. The silhouette is like a standard boot, rather than a bulky 'tacticool' or power ranger boot. Full height, but the top is low profile enough to fit under my slimmer fitting riding jeans. Aside from a bit of accordion stretch panel, and the shift panel (left side only thankfully), they look like a regular pair of black leather shoes once under jeans. See the attached picture Protection feels solid. Lacks inside malleolus protection, but this area is unlikely to strike the ground in an impact. The exterior malleolus is hard aluminium which is nice. Heel and toe are rigid but not uncomfortable, and the sole is stiff through the mid and rear, with a bit of flex at the toe area (perfect design IMO). Very little flexibility left/right which is great. Reflective logos on heel are a nice touch. Overall the protection COULD be more heavy duty, but it would come as a sacrifice to comfort and aesthetics. Very comfortable on the bike. The sole has enough grip to not slip when you put your foot down, but unlike a heavy duty lug sole, it's easy enough to move your foot around on the pegs. The shift panel on the left boot lines up perfectly with my shifter. The accordion stretch panels are in the perfect positions (you can see them flex when you move your foot). I have no problem wearing these all day off the bike either. The inner liner is soft, which means you DONT need to wear high socks. They're easy to take on and off thanks to the single big velcro and heavy duty zip, but no chance of losing them in an accident. At some point I may put a superfeet inner sole in, but it doesn't need it right now. It's summer here in Australia, and i rode in 35 degree C temps yesterday (100ish F). The boots were warm, but not bad. I'm happy to ride in them year round. Obviously a really well vented boot won't be waterproof, but these are gore-tex so it's the best compromise. Overall the quality and attention to detail is really high. Definitely going to be a long lasting pair of boots. One of the features that was important to me is the fully replaceable sole, which means a much longer service life for a small investment. I'm really happy with these boots even with the high price tag. I wish I'd spent the extra from the start rather than wasting $150 on a crappier pair from another brand which I'm not likely to wear again. Obviously these aren't your track day boots, but I wouldn't hesitate to wear them on a round the world trip (one day.) October 13, 2013
Very comfortable When my ancient Gaerne boots finally died, I tried on several replacements before settling on the A* Gran Tourino Gor Tex. These boots offer a great combination of comfort, style and protection at a competitive price point. Style wise, I think these boots are handsome without being flashy; they look great with either jeans or leathers. I typically wear them outside of Dainese Alien leather pants. More importantly, they offer solid protection with a plastic (?) panels covering your shin and ankles. Sizing is a bit tricky with boots. I typically wear a 10.5 medium width and EU size 44 fit well. The Gran Torino boots run slightly large, so I have room for an insert if I'm wearing light weight socks, or I can pull the insert out and wear heavy winter socks. There's room either way, without being too big. They're also comfortable walking around off the bike. Highly recommended. September 17, 2013
Good protection, comfortable boot I wanted a boot that provided adequate protection for adventure riding but would also be comfortable when getting off the bike and walking. These boots hit the mark on both aspects and I liked the casual styling as well. My only gripe is the one piece closure flap which doesn't allow the top of the boot to be wrapped snug without wrinkling at the bottom. I can see why it was changed to a two piece flap on the newer model Web-Gortex. I believe this boot has been discontinued so I'm glad I got a pair before they sold out. Sizing was accurate.

great boots I can definitely that these are the best sport touring boots from Alpinestar. They very comfy ,feels like sneakers ,well constructed ,designed and great adjustable velcro flap for secure fit and preventing water getting into a boot. Boots are 100% waterproof thanks to gore-tex membrane. I have not had a chance to test them yet in rain but I am pretty confident that I won't be disappointed. Boots are stylish yet safe.If you looking for boots for long day or night riding this is your choice. April 22, 2013
Very Comfortable These boots are really comfortable, with plenty of width, which is usually my main concern when purchasing footwear. I wear 11.5 in Jordan's and these fit accordingly, with maybe a little wiggle room, plus the leather is soft even though it seems pretty thick. There aren't many hard parts, just front of the toes, heel, and shin. Also, the hard parts aren't connected, but that probably adds to the comfort. I feel comfortable walking around town in them. The huge Velcro patch helps with adjustability, but these are mostly outwear boots. Loose pants will go over them though. I haven't had any issues with the shift pad not lining up like another reviewer mentioned, and use them on both a Honda Shadow and Suzuki GSX-R. There is no perforation, but I haven't had any sweating or overheating issues, but that may change come summer. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase. I really like the subtle styling, and the reflective part on the back of the heel is a nice touch. March 28, 2013
Comfortable and Good Looking. The boots are great. They easily passed my "keep them for an entire office day" and "go walk with them for a couple hours after riding a lot" tests, so the comfort part is totally validated for me. Having Gore Tex is good, but there's a lot of extra room on the top of the boot. Therefore, if it's raining, you need to have large rain pants that can cover the boot, or you are unfortunately at the mercy of cold water getting your feet wet. I did not experience any fall with them, but they seem to provide a decent amount of protection, even though the toe cap isn't steel. I was hesitating between those and the SMX, and I think I made a good choice, as the SMX, even though it probably offers better protection, does not look nearly as comfortable. November 12, 2012
Pretty good. Not perfect I've had this boot for about a month now, and have ridden it around town and on the highway. The leather seems very high quality, and the "hard bits" in the toe and shin strong, if not motocross level. No protection in the heel area. On and off is easy and fast. I have not been in the rain in them yet. They get hot in the height of summer temps, which is what we are in right now in Maine, but that's the tradeoff for this level of protection. Good style if you don't mind looking a bit like George Jetson. Walkable. Two issues. The rubber insert on my left boot is a stylish swoop intended to protect the leather from shift wear, but my shift hits in front and to the right of the swoop, and the boot already shows scratching there. Couldn't them have been less stylish and just covered the entire toe? And the fit, while only a little loose for me, is not very adjustable, so if it didn't work for you, you could't really tighten (or loosen) it much. If you get them, see if the fit works, and then go test the left one against your shift position - by the time I realized mine didn't fit, the boot was scratched, so unreturnable. July 22, 2012

Lawrence P: These are replacing my old Alpinestars Web Gore-Tex boots with 6 years and many thousands of miles on them. I was happy with the old ones and thought these were about the same boots only a little better looking and sturdier. May 29, 2014

Jack S: My Gran Torino's measure 30cm (11.8 inches) from floor to top at the rear.

I tried these and the web gore-tex on, and the height difference wasn't really noticeable.

David M: I had read that as well, but my feet are medium width and they fit me perfectly. They are not on the tight side at all so I would expect that you should be fine. Revzilla's return policy is very good. Try they on and walk around the house. If they don't fit, return them. Don't take them for a ride, though, as they would exclude the ability to return them.

Wade B: My feet are 13 D and the Gran Torino is one of the most comfortable boots I've ever worn. They've got about 18,000 miles of use, much walking and they feel like really well supported sneakers. Check with Revzilla for details on their return policies. Apr 29, 2014

John N: I bought a pair last year and jumped into a 5000 mile trip from WI to the West Coast and back, with four friends. I wear a size 10.5 D and bought 11s. They were fine. Even good for long walks. Also very waterproof. Apr 29, 2014

A shopper asked: I have spent hours and hours looking at touring And sport riding boots. I ride distance (500+ miles a day) and commute. But I also like corners and dragging footpegs on my Hayabusa. Whatever I get will be used on and off bike daily. These grand Torino gor-tex boots and the smx5,6 are the styles I'm curently looking at. The boot looking like a regular shoe is not a big issue to me. But protection and daily comfort is. Without them in front of me I cant decide what will be best though longterm. Hmmmm. Please help with input. What is reccomended from those that have handled both styles? The older smx is all I'm familiar with. Jul 12, 2014

Edmond S: I recently bought a pair of the Gran Torino boots and put about 700 miles on them riding around town and in the local mountains both commuting and in the canyons. Then I left for a tour of Canadian Rockies which I just got back from. 3300 miles with a few long 500+ mile days of pouring rain. Feet stayed dry and comfortable the whole time. Good traction in wet and sandy conditions. Also comfortable to walk around town in. The protection in the shins and ankle areas is more than adequate without being overly stiff or rubbing on my legs/ankles during long days. Easy to get on and off. I am very pleased with them and would buy another pair. Jul 12, 2014

Christopher Y: I have used Alpinstars Gore-Tex boots since the 1990's. Buying the newest model every 5 years or so. The Gran Torino is ok, it's not the most comfortable boot they've ever made. It is narrower than my last version, the Effex Gore-Tex. I always replace the sole with a more comfortable sole, because I also, walk around in the boots when I get to my destination. The narrow boot limits the style of in-sole options. I went with a very thin in-sole this time. I like the look of the Gran Torino, it's not as bulky looking. But if you have a wide foot I would consider other options.

Michael L: I wore my Alpinestars Gran Torino Gore-Tex Boots on a cross country trip last year. I covered 500 miles per day for six days on my Yamaha FJR, and rode through roughly 1000 miles of torrential rain. My boots performed superbly. My feet were comfortable and dry for the entire trip. I wouldn't want to do a lot of walking in these boots, but they are the best boots I've ever owned for long distance performance. Jul 15, 2014
