Style! Comfortable & Stylish w/ Great Ankle Support and Traction! May 17, 2015
Just like what everyone else stated These boots a good street riding boots, the last pair I had were the supertec R's and they are race boots so I looked a little funny walking into the bar with those on. I purchased these to wear with my riding jeans so I could go out and not look like a rider. The jeans and shoes help with this, now I just need a jacket. Otherwise no real issues. They are comfortable riding and at a stop. The only odd thing for me is I need taller socks but not a big deal. April 27, 2015
Great Boot Great boot for riding. I ride a cruiser and enjoy this style. They do breath amazingly. Can't say as to how they let water through yet and hope that I don't have the chance to see. Would recommend and buy again! April 14, 2015
So glad I went smaller than usual. Perfect fit! I am happy with shipping, size, and comfort. I read a review that said " go smaller, they run big". Examples of foot wear I use. I wear a size 11 Nike air max, I run a 10.5 wide dress shoe. I was worried to go a full size smaller, but took a chance. I got a 9.5 or on this a 44. So glad I did! It's perfect! I even have room to wear thick socks! Now if you race a lot, I might get boots with a little more stiffness. But I dive into corners with a hyabusa and they work well for me. And they are pre-broken in for walking in. I am not the guy to mess with reviews, but it's hard for me to buy footwear on line. And after I ordered these, I totally thought I might be returning for a larger size! Brian, ripping up the mountains of maine. May 21, 2015
Great fit and comfort I have been looking for a boot which provides adequate protection for city commuter rider, provides enough airflow during summer heat, ability to wear all day at work with a pair of jeans. Alpinestars S-MX 1 Boots seem to be a good match. Boots are soft and comfortable on the inside, but cautious with sizing as they run larger then normal size. I wear size 10.5 in daily footwear, and had to pickup 9.5 in Alpinestars S-MX 1 Boot. Once you put a boot on, there is a Velcro strap over the top which holds boot in place. I wish Alpinestar put more secure mechanism in place to allow user adjust tightness and fitting of a boot. Color selection for the S-MX1 is relatively weak, its offered in all black, hideous white-black-red and white-black colors. I wish Alpinestar designers provided more color options such as grey, brown etc. In my opinion S-MX1 boot is a good daily rider boot, but has room for improvement. May 18, 2015
AWESOME riding shoe! Bought these for riding the canyon! my feet size is 8 1/2. i normally wear size 9 or 9 1/2 in dress shoes depend on the brand and size 9 in all running shoes. i bought this boot in size 8 and fit perfectly! LOVE THEM SO MUCH! Very comfortable!! i can walk in them all day long! feels like i am walking on air. these boot is a bit on the larger size so make sure you get one size down! They also are a little wider in the front for people with wide feet, like myself. So if you have wide feet, these shoes will make you smile all day! the straps are easy to work with. i hate those shoes string ties. always come loose, with these strap from the s-mx 1 you do not have to worry about a single thing! protection is high! it hold my ankle really well, the structure is great in all area. all these little protective items on the boot adds up. i would recommend this to anyone in a heart beat! ~apologized for my grammar, English my second language.

Not sure what happened... I bought these and they were perfect for a while... then I'm not sure what exactly happened My guess is I got my feet wet from a pool and then put these one to walk around the house. Then later that day i put them on again and there was some crazy pressure on the big toes. I haven't tried fixing them yet because I have non-summer gear. Other than that, they are super lightweight and generally pretty comfortable. The airflow is great and if you like the tech style, they're great looking. I recommend them, but don't get them wet! May 8, 2015
great multi-purpose shoe! I bought these boots for commuting and casual riding. They look great with a pair of jeans! I find them comfortable enough to put on and wear all day whether running around town on the bike, or if there's a chance I might ride at all. Decent toe box reinforcement doesn't collapse when shifting like sneakers eventually do. I really like the way air moves through the boot when travelling at highway speed or greater. The toe sliders on this model are a bit cheap and snap on and off, kinda wish they were a bit more secure to the toe. I also find that the traction on wet surfaces like sealed concrete or mossy/leaf covered surfaces can be a bit sketchy, watch out for the oil spots around gas pumps. All in all, I'm very happy with these boots! May 7, 2015

Donald R: Lance C.

The boot in the picture and the boot in the video are in fact the same. The video makes the boot look slightly gray / black, but it is actually black.
Hope that is of some help.

Aaron U asked: I'm interested into getting this boot or even the S MX-2, I was curious how the fit is with wide feet, would it be comfortable or would it be a tight fit? Feb 22, 2015

Erik B: I'm not sure about the fitment for wider feet than my own, but I can say I love these boots. I've gone through about 5 pair in the last year and a half and these boots (S-MX 1) has the best fit and comfort for me. At first the height of the boot would dig into the side of my leg but that went away after about a week of riding. Other than that, the feel is fabtastic! This is my opinion and solely based on my own experience! To each its own... Feb 22, 2015

Jason K: I have pretty standard width feet and I've got some room on both sides. Boots are comfortable all day. Order from RevZilla though. They'll take the return and won't charge you anything extra!!! Just make sure you walk around on some carpet and leave the tags on them! Mar 19, 2015

Joe N: Aaron, I usually get shoes in size 13 with a regular width and sometimes a wide depending on the shoe. I ordered the S-MX1 in size 13.5 . The fit is very good, not tight at all. I always wear a boot sock or a thick sock with them. Can wear them all day on the bike. Feb 22, 2015
Reply to Joe Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Dennis H: I usually wear a 9 Wide shoe, size 43 in European sizing. The boots are very slightly snug when I first put them on. After walking a bit they warm up and stretch. The fit is fine after that. YMMV. Feb 23, 2015

Dennis H: I wear regular width, not wide, shoes. I have these boots in size 44, and they fit well. I think they would be tight on a wide foot. Feb 22, 2015

Benjamin L: I have wide feet, typically wear a 10.5 US, and the 44s fit very well, no issues with the width for me. Feb 23, 2015
