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. November 1, 2015
Good overall adventure boot I have only wore these boots two times now but I am really happy with them. I have had boots that I can hardly stand to walk around in but these seem quite comfortable. Riding in these boots is also comfortable but of course, you need to be aware of re-adjusting your foot placement for brake and shift lever. Yes, they squeak. I don't know why everyone makes a big deal out of this but if you want a quiet boot for walking...good luck. I like the new buckles they put on these boots. They are easy to adjust and stay put. I where a 101/2 or 11 shoe, I ordered 11 for these boots and they fit well. I like that they accommodate a large calf. These boots are very expensive, but you get what you pay for. I think there worth it. October 28, 2015
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. October 27, 2015
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. October 5, 2015
Good Boot I have not been able to test this boot yet in cold or wet conditions, but am happy so far. They are surprisingly comfortable for such a big beefy boot and fit my wide feet. I wear size 10-10.5 shoes in EE width and these boots in size 10 fit. The protection looks pretty good especially for the shin and the buckles feel stout. Obviously they don't have much ventilation so your feel will get sweaty at warmer temps. You get what you pay for so if you want a nice boot, I guess you gotta pay up. October 5, 2015
Completely worth it Worth it in every way. Got in a really bad wreck and the only reason I was able to walk after was because of these and theyre still going strong. Ill back alpinestars forever. Take a while to break in and they squeak but so worth it. October 3, 2015
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. September 14, 2015
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.

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Gary S: 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. Aug 30, 2015
Thomas C: Looked wicked and needed 4 season boots Aug 4, 2015
Doug S: gore tex and my other alpinestar gear is sweet Jun 18, 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.
Jun 16, 2015
Jeff J: Great reviews Jun 11, 2015
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

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?

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. Feb 10, 2015
Reply to Mike Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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
Reply to Cemil Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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.

A shopper asked: Would it be overkill to buy these for a commuter? Feb 9, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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. Feb 9, 2015
Reply to Robert Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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
Reply to lloyd Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Marc H: I think so. They are big, bulky and hot in the summer. They don't fit under jeans and mine squeak like crazy when walking around off the bike. For everything but off road riding I prefer my Alpinstar SMX5 vented. 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?

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!

David Z: The boot height is 15 inches and with the top closed it's 5 inches wide and just about 7 and a half inches from front to back. Great boot! Very light (weight wise). Jul 18, 2014

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.

Curtis V: I do not know that, but I know this is one of the best purchases I've made buying gear. The only question you have to ask yourself is do you need a boot this technical. If so, don't hesitate. Although in respect the Sidi's a great buy too. Sep 17, 2015

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
