Alpinestars S-MX Plus Vented Boots - 2013

The latest version of the Alpinestars SMX Plus Boots 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.

Premium protection

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.

Features:

  • High-tech microfiber upper construction is lightweight and extremely durable
  • Forefoot laminated with shock absorbing open cell foam while the ankle area has a highly breathable lining for improved comfort

Great Boot Read sizing Advice
Great boot, Super comfortable but squeaks.
In regards to sizing use euro sizing for sure. In general i would size this using your current euro size -1

Normally I am a 10(44)

I ended up buying the 9(43) It fit a bit more snug than my soccer cleats at first. the 9.5(44) was too big.

My shoes are as follows:
Converse All stars 10(44)
Adidas Samba 10(44)
Nike Pegasus running shoe 10(44)
Asics Nimbus Running Shoe 10 (44)
Adidas Soccer cleats 10(44)
Snowboard Boots 11(44)

impressively comfortable protection
Every time I put these on I'm happy to have bought them.

Granted I don't have much experience with boots (this is my 2nd pair and the first was lightly worn) as for ~25 years I've always worn sneakers for street riding. But after hitting a deer (thankfully it died -- not me, totaled new bike, tumbled on asphalt, broke/fractured several bones) and dealing with some relatively minor foot injuries (six months later my big toenail is only about 20% grown back), boots are something I was going to invest in and *wanted* to wear religiously, so I was willing to pay what was needed. And I haven't been on a bike without these since. :-)

These are really terrific. They are surprisingly comfortable to walk around in (after loosening the upper cinch). The lower boot with "shoestrings" attached to a quick-cinch string lock and feels like comfortable shoes...not quite your favorite sneakers, but not that far either -- you just don't think about it after a few minutes.

Putting them on is surprisingly quick and efficient once you do it 10 times. Help the zipper get that last half inch by compressing the halves together and making sure the leathers lay properly.

The velcro landings for the zipper and the laces are nice touches and well-placed. No issues with either.

Honestly, the ventilation is not why I bought these. The amount of heat coming off a BMW S1000RR in hot weather onto your feet/lower legs/shins is *amazing*. Sneakers with vented mesh tops didn't keep enough of the heat away (and too cold when <45F). These are a nice combination of heat protection and yet some ventilation while moving at speed. All in all, I'm hoping for year-round riding with these.

No doubt ankle flexibility is significantly reduced over sneakers. No problems shifting, other than the obvious reduced sensation on the foot, but I need to re-adjust my rear brake back to "normal" as I lowered it to avoid panic lockups (been there, did that once).

I think they look awesome in real life and have gotten numerous complements on my "gear", specifically these boots (all black/white).

It would be nice if the lace lock mechanism held a little tighter. I like a snug fit, but sometimes it loosens up. And the upper strap can either go "into" the boot (and be tucked away) or be pulled out so it can be cinched tighter...but that requires a little more (two-handed) effort to grab the lead of the strap and keep it from going into the slot. My HB kevlar jeans rolled up one layer (about 3 inches) pack in nicely above the ankle padding.

As far as fitment goes, 90% of the time I wear 10.5 shoes; I bought these in 10.5's. At first I thought they may be too tight, but after several months, they have definitely gone from "snug" to a little on the loose side, which may be why the lacing issue is important to me. As we head into fall, thicker socks should be perfect.

But these are really nits. I am really happy to have bought these boots and would very likely buy them again if needed for some reason.

Great boots! Great fit!
I just bought these boots as my set of techRs are looking tired.

I have to be honest...I like these more than my TechRs and I saved 100 bucks. The feel is just as good, and the colors available for the SMX plus boots are IMHO better. These feel slimmer than my TechRs, but feel just as protective.

No break in period with this boot, feels great right out of the box!
This is my first Astar boot. Must say I am really impressed. Super comfortable right out of the box and wore them around for a few hours after I received the package.

The draw string for the internal booty is great, keeps your feet and ankle snug within the boot. The side zipper is constructed very well and the can be hidden once zipped up.

Once you have the boot full on, does not feel restrictive at all. Great range of motion while still keeping great support. Worn them 3 times already, 2 of which were long rides and was able to move around on my bike no problem while cornering. Other boots have been cumbersome while shifting or not being able to have much feel during shifting. Exact opposite with these boots. The ventilation is superb with these boots. Even though I've only rode in high 60s weather my feet are completely dry and feel great after a long ride. Interested how the keep up this summer when temps get to 100+.

Lastly I'd like to point out one con on this boot. Which is the only reason I did not rate 5 stars. Reviews stated the 2012 boot made clicking noises after break in period. These boots were not supposed to have that flaw. After one week with them I started feeling a click in the multi-link system. It doesnt make any noise I just feel it when i'm walking around. A little annoying but not enough for me to return them... especially since I've already worn them a few times.

Nice boots
I haven't owned a pair of riding boots since my 2000 Gaerne Stradas. I've been out of riding for a while now. I wanted some boots that would protect me on the street but that I could use for track days (one of my bucket list items).

I wear a size 8 1/2 in most shoes and bought the size 42. They fit perfectly right out of the box. I've only had them for a few weeks and riding weather is sporadic in Atlanta right now. As they break in, they might be a tad loose, but right now they're perfect. I have fairly wide feet and was worried because most sport-specific shoes do not fit me as they're too narrow. These are great.

I love the features (laces, zipper, ratchet straps) and the look. I will eventually buy the pants to a 2-piece leather track suit and then the top so I can have a full race set-up that will get me on the track.

I ride an SV1000S, which is on the sporty side and it has taken a little getting used to riding in these boots as far as shifting, because the boot is still a little stiff in the ankles, but they will loosen up with some miles on them. And the incredible confidence I have in the protection I feel when wearing them is worth it.

I would recommend these boots to any sport rider who wants the look, the protection and the comfort. And the quality is awesome, as well. They just look really well put together. Nice boots!

Finally, Revzilla's shipping was very fast and the orders I've placed so far have been 100% accurate. I really love buying from them and they are my go-to for all things motorcycle-related. Thanks!

I love these
I had a pair of SMX-5s that felt like they fit well, but one of them slipped a few inches down my foot in a crash, torquing my foot so I spent a few weeks in one of those bootie/walking-cast things.
So I wanted a boot that would *stay put*. I tried these and a pair of Sidi Vertigos that have an adjustable tension cord thing that's meant to pull the whole carcass of the boot tighter around the ankle. No comparison, this is a much better system. These have a pair of inner flaps that lace together over the tongue and around your ankle. Perfect fit, no pressure points. I love it. And the ventilation works great.

I like the cam/tooth closure strap too, much more than velcro. It just took a little practice to get it to slide in just right, especially when I'm in leathers with longjohns.

Haven't crashed in them yet. Can't wait!

Great boot with lots of features!
The SMX Plus is very comfortable pair of boots; I have no problems with walking around in them and unlike my older pair of 2010 SMX Plus boots, they do not squeak when walking. The lacing system makes it extremely easy to get a snug fit. Elasticated panels in the front and back lets the boot flex with your feet. The Multi-Link system is very unobtrusive while providing good ankle protection. The feel at the controls is excellent. Perforation in a boot is always welcome in hot climates. This boot feels like a wearing a pair of sneakers, while providing excellent protection.

Great boots
These boots are very comfortable and in my opinion require no break in. I typically wear a US size 11-11.5 and the size 46 was perfect. I originally had ordered a size 44, and I couldn't even get my foot in the boot, but the exchange was hassle-free. I have never had such a comfortable pair of boots that allow so much air flow. Awesome product.

Excellent boots
These boots look great, feel great and have plenty of protection. Easily adjustable and getting in and out is effortless. The boots do run big; I wear a size 11-11.5 shoe and ended up buying a size 44. They fit snug but comfortable. My feet are wide but these boots fit just fine. I didn't sense any hot spots or rubbing; very well made. They are on high side of boots pricing but in this case you certainly get what you pay for.

I recommend these boots! The Revzilla staff was very helpful with selecting the correct size, thank you.

Alpinestars is the best in my opinion. I wanted ankle protection as well comfort. I purchased the vented boot bcuz I live in Texas and it's hot. I do a lot of track days around the state. Last reason is that I have some alpinestars gp tech gloves and I wanted to match both boots and gloves.

I was thinking about getting the Dainese boots to match my jacket, but I liked the perforation more on these and since it's almost always close to 90 degrees in California, I figured I'd be more comfortable in these, even though it's not "Dainese".

The most comfortable boot around...

Finally updating my old Alpinestars SVX, great brand and product and perforated to reduce sweaty feet on those hot track days, yes please.

The reviews were fantastic for this product, but I couldn't justify spending $100 more than the SMX 6. However, with the price reduction, the extra $30 was well worth it. Glad I waited and ended up with the boot I wanted all along.

Because they are light, and super comfortable. I tried the other SMX models, but they don't hold a candle to these. They are worth the money.
D E on Jun 6, 2015
Because my friend has the SMX 6's and I wanted to see if these are better since they cost more.... lol wish me luck.
Jonathan C on May 30, 2015
Because I was replacing a 10-year-old pair of the same model boot. I hope this new pair will prove to be as comfortable and durable as the old pair.

These had great reviews. Want to start doing track days so need a lot more protection that regular street riding boots.
ken s on Apr 13, 2015
I tried so many boots but these just felt right on my feet.
Ondrej H on Mar 25, 2015
Bought these to accommodate the track leather pants I purchased. Wanted the vented boots for warmer weather riding.
Don287 on Mar 23, 2015
I chose these boots because they provide ample protection and comfort and they are breathable in hot conditions. They've survived a low-side incident with minor damage shortly after I purchased them. I'm always happy with the quality of Alpinestars products.

I was upgrading from my current boots for more performance features and protection

I had a pair of the previous generation SMX Plus vented boots and needed to replece after over 6 years of weekend use. These are comfortable, vent very well, easy to get on and off and well thought out and engineered to protect your lower extremities by one of the best names in motorcycle gear.
Daniel G on Oct 12, 2014
Because these boots are legit.
James M on Sep 23, 2014
Because I'm the best wife ever.

Wanted some comfortable, well ventilated summer boots, and these have fit the bill so far.
Steven W on Jul 29, 2014
The Alpine name has a proven reputation ...With that name comes great produts at a great price
Rene' T on Jul 18, 2014
Closeout pricing - excellent brand - want safety, comfort, and air flow. This boot has it all for the right price.
Michael S on Oct 28, 2016
Good boots when at the track or fall/spring riding

When should we expect a new model of this boot to debut? Soon?
Todd B on Jul 9, 2015
Are the differences significant enough to warrant the $100 difference with the current + boot on closeout?
Drew on Jan 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hello William. Yes I can assure you that the differences are significant - certainly worth the higher cost. I have owned a pair of the older model for 2-years, and bought the new model last month...I can tell you that the new version:

- is more comfortable to wear (and walk in)
- has an improved tongue & lacing so is easier to put on & fasten
- has better ankle armour and best of all no longer SQUEAKS

In summary its a big upgrade and is well worth the extra $$$
Hope this helps.

How do these fit in comparison to the Supertech R? As wide? More narrow? Just the same?
Thomas Ryan D on Apr 25, 2016
hello, i wear a size 11 in US shoes..im not sure if alpine stars run big or small, can someone tell me what size i should get for a size 11?
Ryan T on Apr 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 45 should fit. i had to buy a different brand in the end because my feet are eeee wide. which is a shame because the astars are far superior boots for protection. dont expect long walks in any race quality boot they are for riding motorcycles.
Are the toe sliders replaceable?
Kirby L on Aug 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Great question. They are supposed to be replaceable, and indeed they are removable. Reinstalling them, however, is an extraordinarily difficult task. You slip a tab into a slot, and then press the other end of the slider to snap it over a small lip. Easier said than done. I tried many times over many months, finally succeeding only by using a large vise to hold the boot, and a large mallet to smack the slider just right to get it to re-attach to the boot.

I would say that - in practical terms - the sliders are not replaceable, even though they are supposed to be.
Does this boot fit under jeans or riding pants?
A shopper on Feb 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: the tops cinch up pretty nice & tight, so if you don't wear skinny jeans, i think you can get them under. I have Aerostich style pants that they fit under fine.
I wear a size 12 in US shoes, I see on the size chart Revzilla recommends different sizes for 9 through 11 but I don't see it for 12. Will a 12 in Alpinestars fit for me?
Ian L on Feb 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I bought 3 pairs of shoes last week at a store and they were 3 different sizes. Every shoe and especially boots sizes mean different things. I usually wear a 13 but some boots fit me that are 11, 12 , 13 sometimes 15. You are better off going to a moto store, trying different sizes, find the right one for this brand and then order it from Revzilla.
anyone can tell this boot height ?
Laith A on Aug 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I wear a size 12 men's and it goes to just below my calf mid to lower leg
Disregard my previous question regarding the shoe size, just found the smaller chart. (?)
