Saved my Shin from a head on crash
Update to my previous review.

I have had these boots for years and recently had the opportunity to test out how they would do in a crash. I hit a culvert head on...direct impact on my right shin. Although i broke my shin all my docs said I need to thank AP because if I weren't wearing these boots my shin/leg would have shattered. I hit my leg right on the shin protector...hard enough to break my tibia but that boot as I said kept my leg from falling apart.

Overall this boot like I have said before is 100% H20 proof, comfortable, technical and great looking too. I am a lover of AP for price and durability but Now? Safety gets huge points and I am living proof. My leg will heal and I will no doubt continue to wear AP ADV boots. REVZILLA gear geeks please feel free to share my story with AP, my blog post http://advgrrl.com/2015/10/23/2015-bmw-1200gs-foliage-ride-crash/ tells my real life story and my leg thanks them for protecting me.

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.

READ THIS REVIEW
I bought these as a replacement boot for riding on the street on my BMW GSA. A bit overkill in rhetrospect, they're beefy, stiff and non-sensitive. They're designed for a specific purpose: to save your foot/leg in an accident/crash from direct or indirect impact. They are more of an off-road friendly boot than a road friendly boot; they don't allow much movement in the joint (ankle) so shifting is easier when standing (a more dirt oriented position) than sitting (more street oriented). They also, like I mentioned earlier, are not very sensitive so it's hard to "feel" the brake and shift pedals and the pressure applied to them until you feel the bike react to your input (good luck finding neutral). This might sound normal and how it works anyway but you litterally can't feel the brake pedal under your foot and the pressure you apply is based on muscle memory and blind faith, so it's not really "normal." These boots are designed for the hard core adventurer who's about to ride to Patagonia or Dead Horse, or the guy who wants the utmost protection for his feet short of wearing a motocross boot. Which leads me to the dirt part of this review. I also ride a Husqvarna FE350 enduro/trail dirt bike. I am in need of a new oair of boots and recently my group was planning a ride in the high desert in northern Nevada in late January. Cold conditions, stream crossings, rocky desert terrain, etc. I decided screw it, I'll wear the Toucans. They're not being utilized to their potential on my GS, they're Gore-Tex, lots of plastic and leather; they're really just a shorter motocross boot that happens to be Gore-Tex (waterproof motocross/dirt bike boots are like unicorns). Besides, I wear over-the-boot off road pants so I knew the shorter height wouldn't be an issue. And it wasn't nothing was. These boots were made for off road. Kicked them on bolders, drug them around corners, fell down with them once or twice (I never said I could ride) and they were AWSOME. I have zero complaints about these boots and they've become my new full-time trail riding boot, as well as street boot. The only thing I wish was different is they're LOUD to walk in. They squeek and you're not going to sneek up on anyone. People look because they're so loud but then I think "yeah...check out my boots. I know you wish you had a pair..."

Great Boot for your off road Adventures
This boot is only half a step down from a full motocross boot. It offers great protection, but that comes at a cost in weight and stiffness. It's 100% waterproof, but doesn't breath very well and gets hot. You can walk in them, but I pack my hiking boot if walking any distances more than a few 100 yards. You'll never be able to sneak up on anyone either, they squeak pretty bad.

If your riding a large bike off road, this is the boot to get. If your going to take your GS to Starbucks, save some money and go ahead and get something a little more comfortable.

I'm happy!
Had the Toucans about three months now and they've been great. Took my time researching and wondering if the expense was justified - it was. Commute with them regularly. Feet fine on a 12 hour day of rocks, trails and paved. Just finished 5 days on the Olympic Peninsula; lots of rain, epic at times, deep puddles, boots were great, feet stayed dry. Comfy. Noisy as has been already been said. No regrets, I'd buy them again. I'm a 10.5, gear geeks said size up, I should have stayed with the posted wisdom, 11's were huge, even 10's are roomy.

Higher price gets you top-end features. Do you like plastic?
I have a pair of Scout WPs that are roomy in the toe and are my standard for comfort. The Toucans' fit was spot-on for Alpinestars,

With the abundance of plastic on it I was expecting a rigid boot and lengthy break-in. I put them on to walk around as break-in but took them off shortly afterward as they were "smooth" from the start.

Hey...they didn't squeak!

There seem to be tiny mesh-covered vents below the lowest buckle: they don't seem to work but maybe if I can ever go fast enough they might. I can imagine them filling up with dirt before that but I can't imagine them being missed anyway.

Speaking of dirt, the inboard plastic panels have a diamond-texture pattern for grip. They'll soon feature a cool (for me) wear pattern but don't expect to be wiping your boots clean like Scouts...you'll be brushing more than wiping these boots clean.

They're no different from other Gore-tex boots. I live in the tropics where humidity and temps stay high so boots are warm. Lots of water everywhere so dryness is the main criteria and these boots breathe as well as can be expected. No water crossings yet.

Alpinestars MX DNA is all over. These boots shout protection from the sheer amount of plastic and stitching. The toes are bulkier and I'm relearning how to shift. I may raise the lever but since I've been off the bike for six months it may just be me. The ankle plate is bulky and so are the buckles and...how do I explain this...they seem to spread out the center of mass. Like when I stick a leg out for balance I can really feel the boot's weight around my foot. It might be because I've been off the bike for so long but just looking at the boot will tell you it's bulkier than others, thus my lower mark for style.

I'll tell you now: the clincher for me was the stitching! My last plastic waterproof boots started separating at the soles after paddling through, not a river crossing, but a few water-filled tire ruts. I suspect that a floppy sole was the reason my foot stayed planted as my bike fell in slo-mo, resulting in a badly broken leg.

After that experience I'll pay for the protection and the stitching.

All day comfort for a dual sport/dirt riding boot.
I've been out riding in the dirt with these Alpinestars Toucan boots a few times now and I really like them. They are all day comfortable and still offer a lot of protection for duel sport and general dirt riding. They are more comfortable and have better "control feel" than my old Tech 3's. They are also much easier to get into and out of and the the clasps on the Toucans are awesome. As for the fit: I wear a euro 43 Ecco walking shoe, 9 1/2 running shoe and my BMW touring boots are a 42. For the Toucans the 43 fit perfect. I would recommend these boots to anyone.

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!

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!

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.

I find myself moving more and more towards the protective side of clothing as I get "older". Have been lacking in the boot department for quite a while so I decided to make a major step up and go with the best.
Denno on Feb 12, 2016
I got the sidi gore tex adventure and they seem to be a descendant of a motorcycle sport shoe, evolved into a boot, small, short and not all that protective. Hopefully the Toucan will be better.
M I on Jan 21, 2016
I have read a bunch of reviews and I have decided that the Alpinestars Toucan boots have the best protection of any boot that can also be worn day, day out on a dual sport bike that gores everywhere, including tough single track. I decided to look for more protective boots because I have read of a few riders breaking their leg on a low speed stumble in rough terrain when the bike hits the leg.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Randall H on May 13, 2014
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.
Robert C on Apr 20, 2014
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.

A shopper on Jun 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
I usually run a size 11.5 or 12 in shoes. 12 in Nike. Any recommendations on how these boots run?
A shopper on May 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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....
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
Howard

BEST ANSWER: 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.
Would it be overkill to buy these for a commuter?
A shopper on Feb 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Hi all,

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

Thanks!
Arne B on Jul 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Hello everyone, I wear size 9D (standard) New Balance and 42 in Ecco boots. At the size chart 9 is 43.! What size should I get? How wide is this boot? (2E or 4E)
ARASH E on Jul 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I always round the size up from EU to American sizes.
I'm a 46 in EU size and the comfortable size for me was 12 (which is EU 47) and not the 11.5 that should be the right size.
In boots, slightly bigger is better then a snug fit because every tiny discomfort after 4 hours of riding become a little discomfort, after 8 hours its getting discomfort and after 15 hours its plain and simple discomfort.

Width wise, I'm a 11.5 wide and when I got and ride with the 12 wide it was perfect.
How large is the calf on these boots? I have very large calves (almost 22" in circumference) and am curious if they will fit.
Vincent P on Mar 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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
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!
Richard P on Dec 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
How comfortable/flexible are the soles? especially compared to Sidi adv GTX?
A shopper on Oct 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.

How much does each boot weigh?
A S on Dec 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 8.147 lbs for the pair, so just tad over 4 lbs per boot.
