Everything I wanted I purchased these boots for long rides and weekends on the road. I was a little hesitant at first as they are a little bulkier than I expected (yes I should have expected it), but after they broke in and I got used to shifting with them, I am super happy with the purchase. They broke in after roughly 700 km and I look forward to years of riding with them. Good job A-stars July 21, 2015
Good This boot is comfortable with a good amount of protection. I get decent flex at the ankle and found it a little more comfortable to walk in compared to the Sidi Adventure Gortex. The better comfort of the Toucan was primarily due to the way the leather over the mid-foot would fold on the Sidi and create a pressure point. The Toucans are smooth, with no pressure points. They are stiff enough that I decided not to use them for now while still learning to ride. I think they will loosen up, but they require some getting used to for shifting and breaking if you haven't used a boot like this before. I have a couple gripes. First, the use of an ankle hinge on just one side is strange to me. It results in a weird bulging of material on the inner ankle of the boot (where there isn't a hinge) when you flex your foot. It's not uncomfortable, but it looks weird. I think a double hinge would increase ankle flex without hurting the protection level. Second, I'm disappointed with the buckles. They sit high off the boot when latched and I think they would be prone to breaking in a slide. Compared to the Sidi, which has flush buckles with raised protection, the Toucan buckles are pretty exposed. July 7, 2015
Excellent Boot Great boots. Very good fit for me. I have size 13 left and 13.5 right foot. Size 13's are very comfortable. They go on and come off very easily. The buckles look like those of ski boots, but these do not fit like ski boots. They fit more like a very comfortable shoe or boot. Great protection. Despite my expectations, mine do not squeak! These are comfortable riding and walking around. Glad I made the investment. June 29, 2015
I couldn't be happier with the fit, even with my large calves. I purchased the Toucans after trying and returning a pair of Sidi boots. The Sidis were fine but I simply couldn't fit them around my oversize calves. The AlpineStars Toucans were slightly larger, and would close, but there was so little hook-n-loop holding that they would come loose when I took a step. The huge advantage that the Toucans had was that they include a flap to which it was a simple matter to apply the appropriate hook-n-loop material to provide additional holding surface. June 9, 2015
Great boots! Initial Impressions (LONG) I just received these boots today and put my first 100 miles on them. I’ve worn them continuously for the last 9+ hrs. My initial impressions of these boots are: BACKGROUND: I’ve owned a pair of Aerostich Combat Touring Boots (CTB) for the last 15+ years and put hundreds of thousands of miles on them and resoled them 3 times. They finally are at the end of their road. My Aerostich size is a men’s 11. FIT: The Toucans definitely run a little large. I’d estimate about a ½ size large compared to my street/athletic shoes. I’m normally a men’s 10.5 US. I have med/wide feet with high arches, narrow heel & ankles, and large calves. Using the size chart, I’m between sizes for these boots and wasn’t sure which way I should go between a size 10 or 11. I read tons of reviews here (all 56+ reviews), watched video reviews, and read up on forums, and I was still confused as to sizing, especially if you are between sizes. Some said they fit small, others a size large and some even said they fit to size. After shooting my info to Revzilla the recommendation was to go with the 10. I can say that Revzilla’s suggestion was spot on. In fact I still have a little extra room if I wore a heavier sock during colder weather. Hopefully this helps others in the fit department. BUILD: Unlike some reviews, mine came perfect. This is my first boot since the CTBs so I don’t have a whole lot to compare it to, but I’ve read that Alpinestar’s can be inconsistent in their build quality. The typical comments seem to be related to sole issues (i.e. uneven sole stitching and warped sole bottoms). Of course knowing that, the first thing I did was to check out the soles and they are perfect. The rest of the boot is also very well put together. All the panel stitching, buckles, and insides are perfectly put together. Mine do squeak. I don’t really care. So did my other boots. IMO when you mix leather and plastic it’s gonna do that. RIDING: Granted I don’t have a lot of time in these boots yet, but like any new boot it’s gonna feel different compared to what you already have. I’ve found that foot positioning, especially the left boot, is going to take some getting used to. The more rounded top foot area compared to my CTBs requires a different foot action to get a positive shift, specifically during an upshift. I missed my fair share of shifts today. It’s too early to say if I should just raise my shifter slightly, but I’m going to put a few thousand miles on them first on/off road before I decide. The ankle flex is great. It’s something I really had to work on as I broke in my CTBs but is near perfect right out of the box with the Toucan. COMPARISON: Again I don’t have a lot to compare it to but compared to the CTBs it’s night/day. Dimensionally they’re pretty close. They’re pretty much the same height but the top of the CTBs are a touch flatter compared to the Toucans. The Toucans are more rounded on the top of the foot. The Toucans have a larger shin guard area which is pretty obvious considering the extra protection it provides over the CTBs, but the part that was a pleasant surprise is that they still fit under jeans, 5-11 style cargo pants, and all of my riding gear (Roadcrafter, BMW Rallye, and Aerostich Transit). Under jeans it does take a little work to get them over the shin guard. I wear loose fit jeans though vs. the latest skinny jeans. Not baggy but a little looser than 501s. Of course YMMV on the jeans. Comfort was a big improvement. CTBs are notoriously tough to break-in. However after 15 yrs they were perfect. I can walk in them, set up camp after a long days ride, search for firewood, as well as, wear them all day at work which requires being on my feet for most of the day. From the moment I put the Toucans on, they felt great. I might be exaggerating a little in saying they are as comfortable as my running shoes, but not by much. They are that comfortable from day one. After my first 100 miles in them, and going on 10 hrs of continuous wear, not one hot spot or area of discomfort. In fact I’m writing this review with them still on. They are a little warm but not uncomfortably so, but that’s a very subjective thing. CONCLUSION: Needing a new pair of boots, I was drawn to these because of the extra protection while riding, but also the walking comfort off the bike. High on the list was also the ability to resole and replace bits that wear out. I obviously keep my gear for a long time, so my intent was to find a boot that would last me another 15+ yrs. Waterproofness wasn’t as high on the list. I’m used to waterproofing my CTBs which are not ‘waterproof’, but with a little work and maintenance they’ve never leaked on me in driving rain or while walking through streams/rivers to scout out the best line. One thing I do like about the CTBs that very few boots in this category offer is a full leather lining….obviously it wouldn’t be gore-tex. IMO they breath the best, and the durability of a leather lining compared to other synthetic options is superior. The Sidi Adventure Gore-Tex (because of the full grain leather), was high on the list, but I quickly remembered I don’t have SIDI feet. In the times I’ve tried on different SIDI boots in the past they’ve always been too narrow for my feet. I realize that the CTB is made by SIDI, but they must use a completely different kind of last, because they are very generous in width. The Gaerne Midland was also a consideration, but the extra protection of the Toucans w/o the downsides of off-bike use, made the difference for me. I wanted to get all the protection I could get while still keeping walking comfort. If I had SIDI feet I may have gone that route. I personally think they look better than the Toucans and all the other features I was looking for are there also. I prefer the plainer toe box and more subdued look of the SIDI. But because the SIDIs were not an option, the Gaerne was going to be my second choice if the build quality of the Toucans was lacking. From what I hear Gaerne build quality is the bench mark in the high quality/consistency of their boots. I am not sure if Alpinestar QC has improved or if I just got lucky, but I’m very impressed and happy with the Toucans. With all the positive reviews on this boot, my guess is Alpinestar’s quality issues aren’t nearly as bad as what is purported on the internet, but maybe still not as perfect as the other brands. I hope to wear these a very long time. Thanks for reading and I hope this helps. Ride: BMW GSAW May 21, 2015
If the boot fits, wear it! If the boot fits, wear it! Want to stay planted on your pegs? Want to stay dry? Like to get off the beaten path or take the road less traveled? Well, these are the boots for you! It was between the Sidi Adventure Gore-Tex and the Toucan's and the Toucans won out for a variety of reasons: FITMENT/COMFORT: Sidi boots fit a narrow foot shape. If you're like me, and want something that you can wear for hours or days on end without regretting it, the Toucans fit a wider foot shape MUCH more comfortably. Go with whatever boot/shoe size you usually wear, because A-Stars boots fit like you expect without guessing on the sizes, and man are they comfortable. FEATURES: Great material and build quality, Gore-Tex, hinged heel and armor that you don't really notice is even there, self-cleaning buckles, sole that grabs the pegs and more. These boots have everything you're looking for. PRICE: At more than $150 less than the Sidi Adventure Gore-Tex boots, it's a no-brainer as far as I'm concerned. May 19, 2015
comfortable and well made Walked around in them for three hours today. Quite comfortable and my feet stayed dry. I normally wear a 10.5 wide and the 11 fit fine with no issues. The boots fit my massive calves too. May 18, 2015
Near perfect Picked these for all-weather, paved and un-paved riding. I don't go seriously off-road with my 1190, but wanted good protection nonetheless. When I first put them on, I was impressed with the cushioning, feeling like my feet were wrapped in protection and comfort. The toe box is a little narrow and I ordered size 11 when I would normally wear a 10.5 The velcro closure at the top of the boot does not fit my (apparently) under size calves - when the velcro surfaces are mated, The inside of the top edge of the boot has some rough stitching or something that was pretty uncomfortable - suggest tall socks. The two buckles are simply brilliant - would definitely consider getting new motocross boots just to have those buckles. The first two rides I took wearing these were 250 miles the first day and 350 the next in moderate temps with no moisture. My feet felt great at the end of the day and was happy to put them back on for the second day. Only sore spot was my calf - my socks dropped down and the boot rubbed on bare skin. Overall, feel well-protected, very comfortable and love the easy-on easy-off. Makes me much more inclined to put on on proper boots - if only I could get my street pants (Carhartt for example) over the shin protection. April 11, 2015

Jesse H: the protection and quality are superb
These have kept me warm in 19 degree F mornings and I still use them when riding off-road in the humid (85%) South Carolina summers at 98 degrees F. The only down side is due to the mega protection offered by these boots: that is feel when shifting and riding is greatly reduced.

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

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

A shopper asked: Hi,

I'm off to Mongolia for a few weeks on Indian-built Royal Enfield road bikes, but 99% of our 2,000km will be in dirt (no roads there!!). When I asked what boots are best, I was told that they try and avoid boots like MX or endure boots, as they really don’t work on their bikes as they have no ankle flexibility. The gear levers on these Royal Enfield's are designed for poor kids who ride the streets of Ulaanbaatar with flip flops!!. The bikes have a lever on the front of the gear lever and also on the back so you actually do not have to hook your foot under the gear lever to change gear. Hiking boots are also used by some riders, but they would prefer biking boots for sure So, as long as you have some ankle movement you will be fine.Please let me know what ankle flexibility these Alpinestars Toucan Gore-Tex Boots have, and whether they will be suitable?

Thanks

Mike G: Purchased the Toucan boots at the end of the 2014 season and only have a few rides with them, but found that they don't have much ankle flex. They are very comfortable boots, but I had to adjust the shifter on my BMW 1200gs up to be able to fit the boot under for up shifting. Fortunately the shifter on my bike is adjustable so I could adjust it up where I didn't have to try and bend at the ankle to up shift. Great boots, but may not be good if you need the flex.

Cemil A: They're not 'super' flexible but after a few days of wearing them walking with them becomes both comfortable and second nature. In my case, having sprained one too many ankles, having support is critical. These are safe, rugged boots, they're not hiking boots for sure. As for shifting gears, again, if you break them in, you should be fine. Feb 9, 2015

Michael Q: I love the boots. I feel the ankle flexibility is good. You can always order a pair from Revzilla and check them out. Just don' t ride in them and don' cut off the tags. Hope this helps.

Robert W: its not been overkill for me as one could break an ankle etc in traffic at slower speeds. it does take a little more effort to put them on and my overpants were tighter as the boot tops are a bit bigger but all said it is worth for me to be a little more protected than standard boots and way more than sneakers that i see some wear.

lloyd s: Absolutely not! Keep in mind you are probably more likely to need this protection from crashing in a commuting scenario. The boots are amazingly comfortable. Last summer I rode to a remote campsite and was setting up the tent and camp and realized I forgot to change into regular shoes - as these boots are so comfortable Feb 9, 2015

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?

Thanks!
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!

Vincent P asked: How large is the calf on these boots? I have very large calves (almost 22" in circumference) and am curious if they will fit. Mar 10, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jesse H: Hey Vincent,
I cannot say for sure they will fit up to 22 inches in circumference.
I require about 18 inches and it looks like there is about a couple of inches more left on the upper strap. Perhaps a RevZilla rep can assist better.
I can say the foot bed is wide.
Otherwise the boots are real nice. they are sturdy and good quality.
I have ridden in rain with no leaks, and have worn them daily for the past 2 months. The lowest temperature I rode in was 18 degrees F and toes were warm(smart-wool socks). Today was almost 80 degrees F and they were a bit warm but not crazy uncomfortable.
Great in off-road environment. good shin protection and great when up on the pegs for the day.
only down side is the lack of feel when it comes to shifting and braking. It takes a while to get used to them.
sorry could not answer your original question...good luckl

Glen G: My answer might be too late, but my calves are a little over 16 inches. I can completely close the flap over all the velcro, and that's with a shin guard on. I thought my calves were large, but I think you'd better find a dealer that you can try it on. I't might not fit, and if it was close you probably wouldn't have a very strong velcro connection. Really you need to try the boot on first. Remember you can always send it back for an exchange.

James D: I'm 5'11" with about 16" calves. The back is lower than the front and the largest part of my calf isn't in the boot. However, if your is, I'd say 19" is about max with the Velcro overlapping at all. Depends on the length of your leg. I recommend trying them on unless you're much shorter than me. They are really comfortable. My feet are on the wide side and there is ample room. Mar 10, 2015

Richard P asked: Hi, do these have an inner booty like the Alpinestars SMX Plus or they do they feature a basic boot interior like the TCX RS2's (the older model not the new RS2 EVO which have a partial inner booty)? Thanks! Dec 8, 2014

Marc H: These have a synthetic fabric "sock" that lines the boot. It is part of boot structure. The lining is similar to that in a hiking boot that uses Gortex. Dec 8, 2014

A shopper asked: How comfortable/flexible are the soles? especially compared to Sidi adv GTX? Oct 20, 2014

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.

Robert D: Hello,

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.

Lee Vivian D: Have not worn the Sidi's but these were comfy right out the box, flexible enough to walk in but still firm enough to stand up on the pegs. Oct 20, 2014

A shopper asked: Does anyone know how small the sizing goes in these boots? I'm a sz 6 in womens shoes (a 4 in mens) They look so great and there doesn't seem to be any in this category for women specifically.
Thanks!

Craig G asked: What is the difference between these boots (Alpinestars Toucan GoreTex) and the AlpineStars Toucan GTX boots, which are also GoreTex? What are we getting for the extra $50 with the non-GTX model? Apr 24, 2014

marc r: Mid season they changed the buckle system on the boot. I beleive it's from the motorcross boot! Also the strap now moves a bit more. Wonderfull boots right outof the box. Apr 25, 2014

John B: The new model change is only upgraded buckles. I saved some money and bought the original.

Glen G: Yes you can. Alpinestar will do it for around a 100 last I talked to them. Great feature for a great boot, and company. I only say that because I own a pair, and had some problems with them, and they responded immediately with a solution. Aug 18, 2015
