Alpinestars Toucan Gore-Tex Boots 4.8 5 53 53
Comfy I wanted to get the Sidi but they were simply too narrow for my foot. The Alpinestars are wider and have now broken in to the point of being comfortable to ride and walk in. So far so good. January 12, 2015
Excellent fitting and comfortable waterproof boot Day one with this boot started out with rainfall that was flooding the streets, it was a deluge. The temps were in the 50's, and while the boots kept my feet dry from the rainfall, they also kept them warm but not muggy. Getting to the office provided dry socks and warm toes. I've since been riding daily with these boots for three weeks now and from 31F to sideways rain these boots have kept my feet warm, dry and i look forward to more days with these boots. January 5, 2015
Great Boot! I was really surprised to find a sturdy-ish boot that fit my feet. I'm used to 44 or 45 Vivo Barefoot shoes, which are definitely not normal shoes, with the soles removed and very thin socks. I wore Chaco sandals for a decade or so, mainly because finding shoes that fit my wide feet such a pain. I purchased the Toucans sized 44.5. One size up was painful, as was one size down. I wear them with SmartWool Ski Ultra Light socks. This size is tolerable for long rides and even pretty long walks, which is fantastic! I'm surprised at how far I can walk in them. The only thing I could complain about (and to be honest, I actually like it a little) is how loud they squeak when walking. I purchased them September 24, 2014. I have put 7000 miles on them so far. I love them! December 27, 2014
Comfy, protective, but expensive all weather boots from A-Stars! Been riding in these for a few weeks in rainy California "winter" weather, and I can confidently say that my feet are dry and warm. I normally ride with light hiking wool socks to keep my feet dry, but these have been exceptional during the downpours these past few weeks. I chose the Toucans because I was looking for boots that were waterproof, off road capable, high level of protection, and quality made. This narrowed the search to Sidi Adventure Rain, Sidi Discovery Rain, A-Stars Toucan, and a few others from TCX/Gaerne. My A-Stars SMX-Plus (regular) have been an outstanding boot for track/daily commuting use, but are far from waterproof. Also was looking for something rugged, that I could wear for trail riding & could easily hose off at the end of the day. It was unfortunate that they didn't come in size 45 like my SMX (those fit perfectly), but the size 11 fits adequately. I needed to tighten the boot more than "normal" to keep my heel from lifting during normal use. I'd say they run true if not a tad small, as I normally wear a 10.5 in most everything else including Red Wings. Many ask if they squeak. YES they squeak out of the box, they're 90% plastic, what did you expect?! Haven't worn an Alpinestars boot that didn't squeak. Don't hear it when I'm riding, don't really care. I wouldn't say these were as "walkable" as other boots, but it's probably due to the one-sided ankle pivot. Would like to try other boots in the future as I like the feel of SIDI Discovery and Garne trials boots, just lack the ankle protection I was looking for. Super easy to get on/off, not the fondest of the velcro at the top but it isn't a problem yet. If they made them in 45, I'd probably give them a 5 star. Great boots, look forward to using them thoroughly! December 23, 2014
Great boots Great protection and very robust. I use the boot on long trips (about 500km in a day) and I have nothing to complain about. The only thing is that it makes a little noise when walking (NHEC NHEC) December 15, 2014
These are great boots! I'm a street rider of 20 years who recently added an ADV bike and the gear to go along with it. These boots are MUCH more robust than my street/roadracing boots are and the biggest thing for me to get used to was how much thicker the sole and toe box was when I went to shift gears on the bike. The boots are very sturdy and have excellent comfort, fit and closure hardware. They grip very well on the sharp, wide footpegs I have but show no signs of wear on the sole so they appear as if they'll last a good long time and MANY miles of riding. In a way, the best thing I can say is that I don't think about them when I'm riding. I'd highly recommend these boots. December 1, 2014
Typical Alpinestar quality Super nice boots. Just not what I needed. But then again, my dad always told me to dress for the crash not the ride. Great fit and very comfortable. October 20, 2014
Outstanding Build & Fit I've been a fan of Sidi adventure-style boots for years, but I really wanted a lighter boot with a better (lower) toe height while still having decent protection.The Alpinestar Toucan Gore-Tex is terrific alternative. A fine fit and finish right out of the box with virtually no break-in. The weight savings is significant over the competitor. I've used them on days-long highway treks and knarly off-pavement riding as well. The boots have a very confidence-inspiring feel. Walking around off the bike is a whole lot easier, too. No more tired feet. And no squeaks. September 29, 2014

Bill P: Just bought size 8, they're a little big, going to check the 7s Dec 26, 2014
Bob R: Looking for a great all around street and trail boot. After much research this one sounds like it has it all. Nov 22, 2014
Kirk Y: I have a pair, the are comfortable and water proof, so I bought a pair for my wife to replace the Garne oil balance that are not water proof Oct 27, 2014
Alexander H: Style, Features, Benefit Oct 22, 2014
John F: Features, namely protection. I have switched to a heavier bike with greater potential for injury when I biff, and these seem like the most protective waterproof boot designed for adventure touring out there. I'm happy with my Tech 3 boots, so I trust the Alpinestars name. Oct 21, 2014
Cemil A: I was going to get the Sidi but they were too narrow. The Alpinestars fit better for a wider foot. Oct 14, 2014
Christopher S: I've been a Sidi fan for years, but I've found them to be overly heavy. Alpinestars has upped their quality, are lighter, and are receiving decent reviews. So I thought to give them a shot. Sep 7, 2014
Joel Q: Very Protective and Comfortable Jul 30, 2014
G A: Good reviews and looks like a quality product with a bit more protection than the adventure boots I have been using. Jul 16, 2014
Robert D: Fit and features. Jul 13, 2014
Joe P: Tried them on in a store. They were comfortable. The review showed them running a little wider the SIDI Adventure boot. I had wanted to get the 2013 and pay $50 less, but my size was out of stock. I realized for a trip riding over 4,000 miles in 9 days, I should have boots with real ankle protection. The video on the boot had lots of details. Jul 11, 2014
lloyd s: Because of the video review. I mainly ride dual sport but want a bit of MX protection if I do that. Jun 15, 2014
Randall H: Great reviews on this site and the BMW moa. May 13, 2014
Robert C: I looked at Tony's review. I also looked at Atomic Moto's review. Tony's reviews are always excellent, and are in part why I am loyal to Revzilla. However, Atomic Moto presented details in the context of comparisons and offered opinions on this boot. Atom Moto 'sold' this boot as the best boot out there. That tipped the scale in favor of the Alpinestar toucans over the SIdi Adventure boots.
That being said, I still like Tony's reviews better as he is concise and seems well rehearsed.
Apr 20, 2014
M C: These boots appear to be a good combination of significant foot / shin protection in a relatively light and flexible boot for dual sport riding. The Gortex is nice to have but isn't the primary reason I bought these boots. Apr 8, 2014
A shopper asked: Can you walk around in these boots comfortably? Jun 16, 2014

Russell M: Not really, nor can you wear them under pants (they're too big around the shin guard).

You could walk around rest stops and such, but you'd not want to walk more than a few minutes.

I returned mine. I like to hike once I arrive at my destination. I don't think I need something so hard core, and I'd like to wear my boots under normal pants.

J. Mark R: Yes you can absolutely walk around in these boots. That said, they don't fit under jeans and I wouldn't plan on riding somewhere with the intention of going on a day hike in the mountains.

You might consider loosening them a bit if you are at a bike show or a rally but they will be fine for any casual strolling.around you want to do

Jeff G: I think so. I wear these under my jeans when I go out. They are comfortable to wear to the movies or out to dinner. They are so much more comfortable than a motocross boot. You can walk around in them. I never thought I would spend this much on a boot, but I can say it has been well worth the $ IMHO. Jun 16, 2014

Dennis R: I wear a size 10.5 in Nike and bought these in a size 10. Everything I read and all the videos I watched (all but one) indicated these wear large. I agree with the majority, the 10 fits just fine. Very comfortable boots by the way. They are a lot of boot, but great protection and warranted given the number of bones in your feet. Now about the sqeek.... May 9, 2014

Craig G: I am an 11.5-12 in a sneaker as well, depending on the shoe width (I have a wider foot). Ordered the 12's and they fit perfect! I must say I have 2 other pair of AlpineStars boots in size 12, so I was pretty confident they were the right size. May 9, 2014

Doug E: I got the 10 (44.5) and I normally wear a 10 1/2. However my foot is quite narrow and I usually have to go down in sizing to get a good fit. These fit very well around the house with good room in the toe and not too wide. May 10, 2014

Ray L: I would buy the exact shoe size you wear. These boots are designed with straps for a perfect mold to your foot. These boots need a lot of. Work to break them in its a very stiff boot for the first month or so. May 14, 2014

Arne B asked: Hi all,

How high is this boot? From floor to the top of the boot. How wide is the boot at the top?

Jul 17, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
lloyd s: Hi, I have a size 10 boot. The maximum height of the boot is 14 inches. The top of the boot isn't perfectly flat it slopes down to 13 inches at the very back part. The highest part of the boot seals with velcro. The maximum diameter of the opening - just barely attaching the velcro is 6 inches. Below that are two buckles. The top most buckle (1/2 up the boot) will not fit a 4 inch diameter cylinder. At the heel of the boot it goes all the way down to 3 inches across.

Hope this helps let me know if you need anymore measurements.

Craig G: Arne,
I am a size 12: they are 15" tall on the front side (shin) and 13.5" tall in the back. Best boots I've ever had. Fit great right out of the box - no break-in required. There is plenty of room in the calf area with these boots - my calves are ~17" in circumference and there is plenty of adjustment with the Velcro above the 2 buckles. When in the boot, the widest portion at the top is just over 6".
Hope this helps. You won't be disappointed with these boots!

A shopper asked: How comfortable/flexible are the soles? especially compared to Sidi adv GTX? Oct 20, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Joseph T: I find the boots and soles to be very comfortable and flexible. After reading all of the reviews, I thought they were going to be much harder to break in and "clunky" but to my surprise the were lightweight and were broken in after about a week of daily use (120 mile commute round trip everyday). Definitely waterproof with a nice wide toe box. The only complaint is that they are squeaky- you definitely won't be able to sneak up on someone. As for comparison to the Sidi Adv GTX I cannot say because I wear a size 12 EEE and the SIDI boots are too narrow for my feet.

I cannot make a comparison but I can say these boots are very comfortable. The soles provide a very stable platform while standing on the pegs yet are flexible enough for getting around.
