Alpinestars SMX Plus Black Shadow Boots

The latest version of the Alpinestars SMX Plus Boot features a completely updated protection system for the heel and ankle areas. For superior safety and freedom of movement, the newest version of the Alpinestars SMX Plus features an innovative Multi Link Control system and high modulus TPU protection integrated into the sleek profile of the boot. An inner Kevlar speed lacing closure and micro-adjustable ratchet fastener combine to ensure a comfortable, conforming fit on both the road and track.

Unique Multi Link Control System

Alpinestars unique Multi Link Control System provides advanced support for the ankle, limiting hyper-torsion, hyper-extension and hyper-flexion as well as providing additional impact protection to the ankle and Achilles.

Contoured shin plate protector is injected with high modulus TPU for superior impact and abrasion resistance. Wide, ventilated, heel counter extends to the ankle and is combined with a shock absorbing padded insert and self-molding foam ankle protectors. Replaceable heel slider and external side heel slider are positioned to dissipate shock and promote sliding during an accident.

Race inspired details

Newly designed, replaceable TPU toe slider with snap-in assembly provides more coverage around the toe area. Inner Kevlar speed lacing closure and a unique lateral zipper offer precise and secure fitting. Micro adjustable ratchet buckle closure on the calf lets you finely tune the fit of the boot for maximum security and comfort. Alpinestars anatomical and replaceable countered footbed provides arch support and greater feel through the forefoot.

Awesome! Really good product! Really great boots! If you're looking for comfort and beauty, that's for you! February 16, 2015
Just do it I purchased this boot locally. I can't say enough good things about it. I've done about 300 miles on this boot in the last 3 days, and today wore them for about 12 hours without discomfort. I was not expecting that. I have a pair of HD-ish boots that I love and have had re-soled a couple times, so they're broken in and exceedingly comfortable; but they lack real ankle support and can't touch this boot in terms of features. I wear wool motorcycle socks with this boot and even with weather in the 80's and extended wear time, they're very comfortable. I'm sure they're not even broken in yet. I'm more of a commuter and sport enthusiast than anything else, and I'm very happy with this purchase. When you hold this boot and the SMX 5 in your hands, there's just no comparison.

Feel broken in right out of the box! I was looking for a boot with plenty of protection for track days, but yet would be comfortable enough to wear on the street for long spirited rides where walking throughout the day may be involved. These fit the bill perfectly! Aside from a test ride on my work commute, about 30 mi each way, my maiden voyage with these was on WI's infamous slimey crude run. For us this involves about 400 miles of riding with lots of walking at each of the stops looking at all the wonderful toys people brought out to play. I had the boots on for over 12 hours straight, on and off the bike, and my feet never complained once. I haven't crashed in them, but the protection seems very sufficient with minimal bulk. The internal booty provides a great fit. I originally bought a pair of Sidi and, though they looked beautifully crafted, they just didn't feel right. Returned for these a* and couldn't be happier; thanks revzilla. (The Sidi's were sexy though...lol) October 19, 2014
Fit well right out of the box. A little narrow, but that is my foot. Took them to a track day with only about an hour of walking around the house in them and they were very comfortable. I have a wider than normal forefoot and so they were a little tight on one foot - god works in mysterious ways and my feet are about a half size different, so not everything fits in the way of foot coverings, but I like these and would say they are very satisfactory. Hope I never get to be an expert on how they hold up in a crash. No time on them to judge durability, but they seem well made. I am 66, have ten bikes now, more on the way, and owned over 40 since 1965. Revzilla makes is so much easier to buy and understand than in the old days. September 8, 2014
excellent, comfortable boots I bought these boots to have more protection and possibly do some track days. I lost a little bit of tactile feel of the shifter and rear brake vs the fast lane shoes but I feel these will save my feet and ankles in case of a get down far better than the shoes will. Extremely comfortable, just can be a little noisy walking around in them. First pair of purpose built boots and am very pleased with the lacing system and ski boot style ratchet July 21, 2014
Well worth the price These are my first pair of boots and they are fantastic. I wanted more ankle protection than the SMX-5, but didn't want to break the bank with the Supertech-R's so these were perfect for me. Fit is snug but true to size and requires little to no break in time. Great feel on the bike and great protection should I have an off. Airflow is pretty low in the non-perf version so they can get warm on hotter days, but not to the point of being uncomfortable thanks to all the moisture wicking materials in it. These are definitely worth the investment if you care about your feet. August 18, 2014
Great Boot These just came in today so I don't have much time with them yet. Have had them on for almost 6 hours now at the office and man are these comfy! Lunch ride was amazing even in the Texas heat these are not to bad. Protection features are top notch! Extremely comfortable and ankle support is great. Boot is comfortable. Protection is great. Easy to get in and out of. Another great A* Product! September 27, 2013
Great Fit, Great Materials I bought these to get some added ankle support/protection. I had SMX-5s before. I bought the exact same size (44). I take a 10.5 normally in a shoe, so it's technically 1 size smaller than the size chart said for me. The fit is nice and snug. The inner bootie really helps you get the boot fitting right. The zippers up the side can sometimes be a bit tough to get up especially with pants tucked in. That makes me wonder if a size larger was in order, but I really think if I went bigger it would get too loose. Love the fit/finish of them too. I was looking between these and some Sidi STs and in the end I liked these better. They fit better and I like the materials better as well. August 20, 2013

Matthew T: got the smx 6 in and it was too big and wanted more support Feb 23, 2014
A shopper asked: What is the difference other than color of this 2014 smx plus boot and the 2013 smx plus vented boot that comes in other colors? May 2, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Joshua L: The venting and color options are the only difference between the two. I prefer unvented for the colder riding seasons. Whether you go vented or not boot feels and performs the same. If you live somewhere hot like Texas maybe you should consider the vented. May 3, 2014
