Great boots! Bought these to use on longer rides and I do not regret it. They are very comfortable, fit will on my foot, and are very breathable. However, on hot days (85F+), your foot will sweat as with any boot. I highly recommend these! Word of caution, you might have to lift your gear shifter to increase clearance. 2013 Tiger 800 XC September 20, 2014
Gortex rocks! Gortex Rocks! I can stand in puddles, and I have hosed them off after my first dirt ride in them today. Dry feet! I will update as I progress in these boots. I am planning on taking them out to La Panza Tuesday. August 31, 2014
Great, light weight, Protective. This boot is very light for how big it is. I have never owned or worn a dual sport boot and the size was a shock to me. 100% waterproof. Just did a 1600 mile trip and encountered a ton of rain. Kept the feet dry no matter what. They are a little squeaky walking around. Made my co-riders laugh at me a little. Pretty comfortable walking around. August 18, 2014
A major step up from a touring boot I picked these up primarily for the better protection they should offer over my AS WebTex touring boots. They're much stiffer but not so much that walking is difficult. Do they offer ultimate protection? No, you would need to go to a full on MX boot for that. Pros: Goretex, plenty of armor, surprisingly comfortable Cons: They squeak somewhat, the shin protector sticks out far enough to interfere with the pant legs, may need to adjust your shifter to account for the reduced range of motion. You'll notice the cons aren't really that bad. Overall I'm very happy so far and would recommend them to anyone considering this style of boot. August 18, 2014
Great boot! These boots are 100% waterproof with the Gore-tex linning! Ive tested it! They are super comfortable on the bike and off! Ankle support is great with the right amount of give for an adventure/touring boot and not too stiff. These boots are kinda pricey, but well worth the quality you get! I know im not supposed to talk about customer service, but the staff at Revzilla have a world of knowledge about all the products they sell. If you have questions about a product, call them up like i did. They helped me with this boot decision. July 21, 2014
Built (and looks) like a tank! These boots are solid. I wear them daily for commuting and for fun on the weekends. They have taken some significant abuse and show no damage. Surprisingly comfortable to walk around in as well, as in more comfortable to than my Alpinestars S-MX 5s (but much heavier). September 1, 2014
Excellent boot 7547 miles in 21 days from FL to WY to AZ to FL, these boots handled it all in great comfort. From 11,000 ft up in the Rockies at 45*F @ 70 mph to blazing across the AZ desert in 100*F temps to rock climbing in the Grand Canyon, to multiple 600 mile days, to walking around and exploring towns and National Parks these boots handled it all. I only ever wore the Alpinestar tech coolmax socks, even in the cold mountain passes and my feet were never hot, sweaty or cold. Also completely waterproof as one would expect from Goretex. I have an old but permanent ankle injury and need good support to be able to walk more than a hundred feet without pain, these boots give the best support of any boot I've ever worn. June 27, 2014
Why settle for less? I pulled the boots out of the box, put them on, and they fit perfect! Very comfortable and easy to walk in. I did a 1,000 mile California loop in them, touring both off-road and highways and they held up beautifully. Only one complaint, after 3 days of riding, they started to squeak when I walk – build integrity is solid, but a slight hi-pitched whine on every step made me feel like a retired nurse in her white rubber shoes. No big, love these boots! August 4, 2014

Already Asked: 12 Questions, 92 Answers
Sort by:
RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
A W: I'm pretty sure the Sidi Adventure boots are the way to go, but this boot has been getting raves all over the Web. It does everything the Sidi Adventures claim to do, but cheaper. I definitely need to give them a try. Sep 10, 2014
Dave G: On closeout sale and the price was too good to pass up on what I hope will be the last pair of adventure boots I buy for a very long time. Aug 18, 2014
Jordan D: The level of protection it offers combined with its light weight and flexibility. Just hope it fits....bit worried. Revzilla said it would fit large and my foot is between sizes, so I got it smaller than what I wear in athletic shoes. Jul 24, 2014
Bart N: First purchased a much cheaper product and wasn't satisfied with quality, fit and function. Spent HOURS reading reviews here and on the forums and decided to bite the bullet on something that should be exceptional quality with good protection and comfort. Jul 23, 2014
Steve F: My old Oxter Infinity's are 6 years old and pretty floppy. I wanted a more robust boot that is waterproof and provides greater protection. I am also a Ninja, so the squeaky boot will level the playing field. Jun 4, 2014
Martin P: I ride a Multistrada, 80%-90% road, the balance offroad. I like the construction, weight, and the all-weather usefulness of the Gore-Tex lining. The online video was helpful. I had it down to the Sidi Adventure Gore-Tex and the Toucan GTX. The Sidi seemed to be a little more off-road biased so I went with the Alpinestars. I'm an 11 1/2 shoe, and a 46-46.5 EU size, so I ordered the 12. We'll see how it fits. Apr 28, 2014
Malte S: Great boots, excellent quality. Surprisingly comfortable off the bike. Running a little big. I usually wear size 11, but for this boot 10 was a perfect fit. Apr 26, 2014
Brian F: Gore-Tex, light weight, protection & comfort. Apr 5, 2014
Doug E: Goretex and reviews. Apr 3, 2014
Leslie S: Wanted Gore Tex boots and ADV boots with better protection than my Scouts Apr 1, 2014
Lukas v: Best fit for my needs, great review, great price. Mar 31, 2014
Anthony M: Has all of the features I was looking for; CE certified, gore-tex waterproof, stitched and replaceable outsole and doesn't look like spaceman spiff's boots. There are not that many boots that have all of these features. Mar 26, 2014
karl r: Aggressive ADV/dual sport MX styled boot. Light-weight. Water-proof. Seems to offer a little more protection than others that offer similar qualities, such as the scout. Hoping to be able to use one boot for both adv/dual-sport pavement/dirt, and slow technical single-track in the woods. Mar 20, 2014
Jason W: This boot has the right mix of street and dirt qualities that I'm looking for, and the reviews were fantastic. The wider footbed fit is a plus also. Mar 18, 2014
John C: I wanted a boot that offered gore tex lining, a high level of protection for the ankle and shin and offered a wide foot bed. Other than several mentions of defective soles and/or stitching the Toucan GTX's have great reviews. Mar 18, 2014
Dennis R: Increased foot and ankle protection. Safety and reviews of the product. Price was competitive. Mar 4, 2014
Leon H: High quality water resistant/proof boot. Feb 15, 2014
Richard M: I ride in many varied terrains, from street to dirt, gravel, sand, unimproved farm roads, desert. Toucan appears to meet my requirements for rainproof, goretex, good protection in case of "get off", secure toe & heel box, good shin protection. I'm a fairly aggressive rider on a BMW R1200GS. Feb 12, 2014
Jerry B: Second pair. Good adventure boot but not for hard core off road. I used my first pair for hardcore instead of my tech-8 boots because they are far more comfortable. Adding a metal toe protector will keep these lasting longer. Now my tech-8's will sit in the garage unless I'm racing. Jan 8, 2014
Marc F: Boot has great reviews, tried the Sidi Adventure but the instep is a little to high, hoping the Alpinestar will give a more contoured fit. Nov 29, 2013
Catherine M: Positive reviews, reasonable price point, waterproof, what's not to like?
OK, ...I also like the way they look, so sue me.
Nov 6, 2013
matthew l: i need a waterprrof adventure boot for my multistrada that's not as heavy or bulky as my gs boots Oct 28, 2013
Jeff F: Greta reviews both on this site and You Tube Oct 21, 2013
Chris L: The video, reviews and Q&A's within the revzilla website answered all my questions. I was able to try and walk around in these boots at a competitors store and I loved them, very comfortable from the start. Oct 19, 2013
Paul D: Reviews that I read on the different adventure boots Sep 28, 2013
Thomas G: Cheaper than Sidi Gore-tex for a similar quality. Aug 19, 2013
david a: Revzilla TV review. Liked the stitched sole, light weight and the other features. Aug 12, 2013
A shopper asked: I'm wondering if these boots have good tactile feel for the shift/brake controls? I had the AStar Scouts, but had to give them up because the the toe box was so thick and boxy that I couldn't tell where my foot was without looking down every time I wanted to shift or rear wheel brake.

I hoping that this is the boot I've been looking for!

Thanks for the help!

Kbutler6il: I think they do. I have a Honda Nighthawk 750 and have ridden in street (office shoes), cowboy boots, and hiking boots. Hiking boots by far the most difficult for feel. These boots feel close in feel to street shoes, but with so much more protection.

Thanks.

Daniel M asked: How would you evaluate the Toucan in terms of off the bike / walking comfort? (Stiffness / mobility etc.)? I want a boot to provide me maximum protection while riding - but as I daily commute I don't want to have to change foot gear. Would/do you wear this as your primary footwear? Mar 13, 2014

Donald K: They might be tough for all day wear.

It's not that they are NOT comfortable, its just that they are very tall (hot) for sitting or standing all day without some airflow (like on a bike).

For commuting (and wearing most of the time in the office) I use the Dainese Torque gortex boots... for me, they are a great ballance of comfort and protection... plus, being zip on, they are very fast one-handed on-off boots. They are too short for serious off road work, but great for commuting.

Happy riding!

Mike H: This boot is VERY comfortable for walking around right out of the box. However, they are pretty bulky for a shoe you would want to walk around in in place of an every day shoe. I would also think that you will get some pretty strange looks at the water cooler if you stride on up in these... I would suggest keeping a pair of regular shoes at your place of work so you can change.... Mar 14, 2014

Robert S: The boot provides really good protection and is very comfortable, I have worn th on long rides and walk around while on the bike and they work good. I don't wear them all day at work after I commute. I have shoes that I leave at work and put my boots on for the ride home because they are comfortable but they are a big boot, they go up to just under your knee. Mar 14, 2014

DON D C: Tuncan boots are very comforable, very little break in. You cannot wear these boots under street pants, levis etc. I can ride and walk in this boot all day without any discomfort. Boots are pretty flexable and donot squeek, like others do. They offer good protection, but not as much as a motocross boot does. Good luck! Mar 14, 2014

Christopher D: Toucan is a comfortable boot, as for everyday footware I personally would say no, but I don't know what line of work your in so it is a little hard to answer directly. I do ware these boots as my primary footware on all my motorcycle adventure trips in clouding a month long trip last year they did great! Mar 14, 2014

Alexander T: they are very comfy off the bike, but a bit stiff but expected becuase it has to protect your feet and ankles but as a daily boot its overkill by far and also a bulkier boot. you need a touring style boot for commuting, id recommend possibly the sidi canyon gore tex or something of that nature.

A shopper asked: Since I am down here in São Paulo, Brazil, it's a little bit hard to take advantage from the fantastic service Revzilla offers you guys in US on exchanging goods. The issue I have concerns size. Alpinestars cross-reference table seems to be a little bit off. My FOX F3 boots are 12 and fit perfectly. Do you believe I should trust Toucan 12?
Thanks!

George B: I just spent about two hours trying on boots at the Revzilla Philly Navy Yard store. Here is some info that might be helpful to other boot buyers.
I tried size 12 and 13 (46 & 47?) in the following boots...
Item# 566240
SIDI Adventure Rain Boots
Item# 475666
SIDI On Road Gore-Tex Boots
Item# 881027
Alpinestars Toucan GTX Boots

1.) All the above boots seemed true to size.
2.) All the above boots seemed to be a bit narrow. (I have wide feet so this is understandable in my case)
3.) The SIDI Adventure was simply beautiful to look at. Best appearance by far.
4.) The SIDI On Road boots seemed as if they were the most narrow but also the most likely to break-in to your natural foot shape since they were made of softer leather than the other styles.
5.) I didn't like the typical gaudy Alpinestars styling but after wearing each of the above boots around the store for a while, the Alpinestars Toucan GTX Boots felt the best so I bought them.
6.) The Alpinestars Toucan GTX Boots also seemed to be the widest fit. I bought a size 12. Going up to a size 13 was not necessary, even with my wide feet.

After sale Info:
If you are street commuter and used to a soft leather boot as I am, these monster boots (like all heavy protection) are going to take a while to get used to. Big, clumsy, unruly, and I can't feel my pegs or foot controls on the bike. As Ben mentioned in the letter above, I too may be raising my shift-lever so I can get the toe of these boots under it.
However, I'm happy with Toucan GTX Boots. I'm warm, dry, and protected!
Like most new protective gear, you adapt and grow more comfortable over time.
A great boot! Glad I bought them, and the new Revzilla Philly store was wonderful.

Sam H: Paul,
I wear a size 11 90% of the time. A different way....when I go buy new shoes, size 11 usually fits. It's only rare that I get a 10.5 or 11.5 when a shoe is made small or large.
So YES for me the alpinestars are true to my shoe size. I bought a size 11 for the alpine stars toucan boots. I do however have a medium width foot with a skinny heel, so I almost always have thicker orthotic insole that I add to my shoes. I did the same with the alpinestars.
Overall I am pleased with my toucans and the way they fit my foot. And they run true to size for me.

Ben R: I purchased a pair, for me the fit was "true" to advertised size, i have normal shaped feet. great boots, with only one small issue. they have a very low flex tilt. in other words, to UPshift i really have to force my toe tip under the shift lever. I could adjust the lever, however for other riding boots i would have re-adjust it back again...

George P: I never had FOX boots but compared to the Alpinestars Tech3 that's I also have, the Toucan runs a bit on the smaller side.
It was fine at the beginning but once I drowned it a few times ,they got a little tighter.
If you planning for deep water crossings, etc ,try to get a half size bigger.
Hope this will help.

Kelly V asked: Should these boots fit a bit tight at first? I'm wondering if they stretch out a lot after breaking in or if they stay pretty much the same as they are when they are new. Feb 12, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Helen H: I would say they stay pretty much the same as they are when they are new. I am a US size 9 ladies, and I ordered a size 7 mens (didn't have women's sizes), they fitted perfectly with slightly thick socks. If you can, try a pair on in a shop first with similar socks to the ones you plan to wear while riding (I used Klim ventilating socks - super soft and comfy).

My hubby and I received a pair of these boots each from Revzilla the day before a 3,000 mile adventure trip, so no time to break them in which was worrying. First day we wore them, we did over 100 miles, the first 30 on dirt and rocks in Arizona desert, temperatures of 100F and they were unbelievable - straight from box to bike with no discomfort or blisters.

These are probably the most comfy bike boots I've ever owned, including the comfiest bike boots I've walked around in. Beautiful fit if you get the right size. We can both highly recommend them!

Jason K: For Kelly V: I didn't purchase these but I had them delivered to my home so I had a chance to try them on and feel the materials. The materials seem like they will break in a bit, but probably not like a leather work boot. The inside part of the boot (the side facing your motorcycle when wearing, not the inside of the boot) is made of one big panel of rubberized material, which may not break in much. This panel was my biggest issue. Why put a flex point over the outer ankle and a non-flexing panel on the other side. Not very flexible in my opinion.

In addition, the buckles are a bit tricky, not as easy as I felt they should be and I'm a big guy.

I sent them back and swapped them for the Sidi Adventure Rain boots, which have broken in nicely and have buckles that work smoothly and easily.

Ride Safely!

Scott M: My pair fit well straight out of the box - can double up on socks (liner and wool pairs) with no buckle adjustment. They have gotten more comfortable on and off the bike with time but can't say they have stretched out a lot. They have gotten noisier (squeaks) but that happens mostly on stairs. If the foot bed is too tight with medium socks you might want to go up a size. Feb 12, 2014

Juan T: I would say the fit was nearly perfect for me the first day I got these. I do have a little trouble feeling the gear shifter and I tend to not have a lot of feel for the rear brake. I'm sure thy will break in some, though for comfort I am good, it would be more for feeling of controls. Have not had them long enough to know how this will work out. Feb 13, 2014

Mark L: I have only worn mine for a few thousand kilometers, but they definitely feel a bit more comfortable than when I first put them on. I wouldn't say that they stretch a lot though, and they weren't that tight on me to begin with. I did go up a size when I bought mine, after trying on some other Alpinestars boots. Feb 12, 2014

Robert L: Hi. The boots did not stretch out at all. But I'm thinking they might start to pack out a very tiny amount, like a ski boot. Since both are covered in plastic. They are the same as new, but the squeaks are gone. Feb 12, 2014

George P: Mine shrunk a lot from getting wet/washing/drying..One boot got a size smaller and had to take out the insole to be able to wear it .

A shopper asked: Will all weather riding pants tuck into these boots, or do you wear the pants over the top? Feb 11, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Barry C: Complicated answer:

Well, it depends. If the pant leg is full length, then no, I do not think that it will work. I use two different pants with these boots. The first pant is the Joe Rocket Convertible. It is ballistic nylon and full length. It goes over the boot and works nicely as I added velcro to the calf and ankle to keep it tight on the boot. The second pant is a Spidi leather that has a "road race" cut to the lower leg. The cut is tight on the calf and only extends about half way down the calf. This pant works well inside the boot. The velcro flap at the top of the boot is generous enough to allow the pant leg into the top. But if the pant leg were longer, it would cause binding in the area around and just above the ankle. That would not be comfortable and it would also cause the top latch much more difficult to fasten.

You should wear long socks or you can also wear short socks together with long underwear.

IMO, this is a great boot, most importantly regarding comfort, but it also excels with its ease to get it on and off. I've only crashed once but it was on softball size rocks and my bike landed on my right leg, trapping my boot. My knee wasn't very fortunate, but the leg, ankle, and foot were perfectly protected.

Best wishes.

Alejo I: I have two type of pants. One of those i wear them into these boots and others over the top. It depends on the size of the protection of the pants. remember that these boots are really high.
You can put the pants in or out the boots depending on the weather. If it is raining i do not recommend you to wear those pants inside because they will introduce water into your socks.
If is not raining and you want them inside the boots you will not find any problem because they have lots of adjustments.
I strongly recommend these boots.
good luck!

Mark B: Good Question. All weathers need to go over the top. I have torn a pair of First Gears bc I couldnt tuck in but FG replaced pants with new no questions. If you are an agressive off roader then you might be in the same boat. When I am riding around town I wear the boots and tuck my jeans in no problem. For dirt road and paved I have the all weathers over them and they look just fine. Awesome boots and you probably would have the same problem with any of this MX style boot. Never had wet feet even with water crossings. Feb 11, 2014

J. Mark R: Pants will likely fit inside these boots.

That said, if it is raining and your pants are tucked into the boot, I expect your feet will get pretty wet.

I used these in rain and my only problem was with one boot that was exposed to the rain while I was getting my gear on. Water wicked into the boot quickly and stayed wet, the other boot stayed dry with pants draped over the boot.

Not sure if that makes sense. I highly recommend these boots but keep water away from the top. Duh

Leslie S: I think your pants should fit in these boots. The area with the A has a ton of velcro to make the shin area pretty wide or tight. Unless you have bell bottoms lol I think you will be just fine. I LOVE these boots by the way. They squeak but ever so comfy and not over the top sturdy just right for a on/off road ADV rider.

Jeff G: It really depends on whether the pants are made to tuck into a boot or go over the boot. I have tucked a pair of jeans into these and it worked well. My Klim Badlands pants fit over the boot with no problem. I have not tried to tuck them into the boot, as the pants are made to go over them. I hope this helps. Feb 12, 2014

Alexander T: it depends what kind of pants theyre specified as, whether they are over pants or inpants . Also considering these are a cross between touring and off road boot they probly go on outside so wen u get mudd and water on pants it does drip down and in ur boot Feb 11, 2014

DON D C: If your riding pants are designed for over the boot use they should work. My Klim and Rev-it over the boot pants work well with these boots. If your riding pant are like Levis they will not fit over these boots. Feb 13, 2014

Christopher D: My all weather riding paints always go on the out side to keep the water out of my boots, can you tuck them in, well I would say yes but would recommend keeping them over your boot. Feb 11, 2014

Shawn W: The boots can accommodate a LARGE calf muscle, so, if your calf is on the smaller to medium size then there should be room for snug pants. Good luck. Fantastic boots BTW. Feb 11, 2014

russell g: I have never had the Sidi Adventures, but my Toucan's do not squeak at all once they were broken in. When new there was a very slight squeak, but after putting them through about 500 miles of riding the squeaking went away. Jan 12, 2014

Mark B: I wear 8.5 normally and got the 9's. Fit is great. They are awesome boots. The toebox is pretty full so I had to re-position my shift lever on my 1200GS and on my 650GS to make them work. You need to rotate your foot pretty high to shift up but other than that they are completely fantastic. Waterproof, comfortable through the summer and just did a ride yesterday for about 1.5 hours in 29 degree temps. Warm feet the whole time.

More than you asked for but figured you might want to hear.

Jude T: I usually wear size 9.5, but depending on brand and model, size 9 or 10 fits me well. For this particular boot I bought size 10 because no half-size available. I think that if they have had a size 9.5 the fit would have been perfect. I made the right decision to go up to size 10 because I am sure that size 9 would have too tight. Nov 15, 2013

Mark L: I would get a 10, especially if you think you might want to wear thicker socks in winter. I normally wear a 12 wide, and went with the 12 in these boots, and they feel a little snug in the width, but the length is good. Nov 14, 2013

Kevin S: Go with the larger size. These are very comfortable boots, but I would definitely go up in size just in case you want to put extra insoles in and also to accomadate for thicker socks. Nov 14, 2013

troy s: you should get size 9 they run a little big. I always get size 12 so i ordered these in a 12. the 12 is more like a 12.5. still fit just a little big. Nov 17, 2013

colm m asked: I'm not on the tall side and I'm looking at either Alpinestars Toucan or Sidi Adventure GoreTex. Does anyone know if there is much difference in sole thickness (insole and outsole combined) between these two boots?
Thanks!

Rodolfo V: Hi I have toucan boots they are very comfotable just out of the box, very complete in my opinion in terms of the sole this is made by an externar manufacture and they ony made sole they are sweeded not glued, insole is very comfortable they do are a little beefy but thats the nature of this kinds of boots, they do well riding in seating or standing position in case you have a doble purpose bike, the buckles have a memory system are made of aluminum not plastic
The protection is outstandig and so the gortex membrane, I just got them out of the box and the next day I did a iron butt 1,000 miles in 24 hours without a problem
They do run small I have another alpinestars boots and the size is diferent I have to change it for a size bigger
About the sidi it also was my other option but seeing the diference I decide for the toucan And I dont regret they are awesome highly recommed
I know sidi made one of the finest and comfortable boots as well but they just are not nice looking
By the way all of my friends also like the toucan boots
Hope this my help you in your decide

Timothy H: can't speak to the diffrences in sole thickness per se, but I surmise the difference is immaterial if you are looking to boost height noticeably. I will say the Toucans are very good boots. I've had many diferenct boots of all kinds; racing, touring, MX you name it. These Toucans provide the protection comfort and waterproofing I was looking for in a dual sport application. I took them on 2 trips to CO this year on a Tiger XC and a TE610 and they worked great in all conditions. I would recommend wearing tall wool socks to avoid rubbing your leg at the top, otherwise they run true and I recommend them. Nov 6, 2013

Ray L: Sup dude I got a pair of the toucan size 11 its a great boot. The bottom sole is very light and flexible. You won't be disapointed. The outer shell is very durable. Not only do I wear these boots for street and track. I also wear these boots out in the mud on the quads and offroad bikes. These boots do not run big or small whatever siZe shoe u wear order that size. I did and there are 3 straps for maximum support. I'm a rider from OHIO and these boots have been in all kinds of weather. Easy to clean if you read the cleaning guide it comes with. Hope this helped. ALLWHITEBIKE Nov 6, 2013

Mark L: I cannot compare the two, but I went with the Toucans after trying a few different boots. After more than 5000 Km in a couple of months, riding in different conditions, both on and off road, I'm glad I did. I will probably get a second pair soon. I would definitely recommend them Nov 14, 2013

AITOR Z asked: I am looking at "Alpinestars Toucan GTX Boots - 2013" I am confused by the sizing.
If I order size 9, what European size will I get?

Paul D: Hi Aitor,

an American size 9 is a European size 39.5. Actually the sizing chart lists an 39 as size 8.5 and 40 a size 9.5. Love my Toucans, though they squeak a lot when walking. They are very comfortable though.
