Women-specific version of the hugely popular Alpinestars Tech 3 Motocross boot. Benefitting from the technology developed in the high specification Tech 10 and Tech 7, the Tech 3 combines strong protection performance with comfort and high quality components to give unobtrusive riding feel and durability.
Lower overall height to suit women
Calf circumference designed to suit the shape of a woman's lower leg
Ankle padding specifically designed to follow the more aggressive tapering of women's ankles
Durable full-grain leather upper with new poly fabric lining and open cell foam
Inner, medial, side of the boot is specifically designed for control and features a thick and wide stamped suede upper panel and PU protective lower section designed for excellent contact and grip against the bike while guarding against heat
Patented ankle brace protector
PU protectors on the shin, side and toe box area, calf, heel and outer ankle for a high level of impact and abrasion resistance and to absorb shocks
Anatomically designed footbed raised at the heel to move the foot upwards for optimal fit around the ankle and calf
Inside protector specifically designed to provide greater flexibility in the metatarsal area, assisting back and forth flexibility
Three stage, softer, instep/ankle flex zone for maximum comfort, control and support
Exclusive dual compound rubber sole provides improved grip and superior durability in high wear areas
Sole features a contoured stamped steel shank
New closure structure features three, low profile aluminium buckles with memory, self-alignment, micro adjustments and a quick release/locking system. Top and bottom reverse closure design provides superior impact avoidance and optimal fit.
Worried about women's version quality
I was debating for a while whether I wanted to get the woman specific version or get the guy's version. It seems that as a rule the women's versions of riding gear lacks all the same safety features and quality as the men's versions. I also do not have large calves so I figured a smaller men's version would be fine for me.
I chose these because I am new to dirt riding and for the price figured I still have room to upgrade if these don't work out. So far the quality and protection seem great. I feel like a rhino could step on my lower leg and I would be fine.
I haven't been able to ride with these yet but I did sit on my bike and try shifting, these boots are stiff and it's not easy to get the toe box under the shifter. I am trying to break them in a little and increase the flexibility. It is still too cold and snowy to ride where I live so I have some time to get used to the boots.
The fit is perfect for me. I wear a women's 8 and these boots hug my heels perfectly but allow my toes to move around which I like. The height is good too, they come to about the top of my calves and walking around is easy.

I got these a couple of months ago, and I'm impressed so far. Knowing ahead of time that you never really break your motoX boots in, they break you in, I have found that the Tech3s have loosened up a bit and are a bit easier on my legs the more I wear them. The buckles stay put and I don't have any issues with the boots moving around. I do like the large toe box - I had to move my shifter lever to accommodate it - it gives me room to wiggle around a bit inside of the boot when my feet are tired and this is a huge plus for me. I use orthotics inside and there is plenty of adjustment with the buckles to make room for them.
The soles are decent for walking in when I have to walk. More like clomp around. ;-)
I'm a little disappointed that AlpineStars does not make their top-line technology available to us girls, but at the same time, I'm really happy that we get at least this much boot. The price is certainly good for what we get. Overall I am very happy with them and can definitely tell that they are made for ladies' feet, not just small guy boots. This is huge as I have narrow feet and finding boots can be a real chore.

This boot works well for those of us with shorter legs.
Not many good motocross boots out there for women. I wanted something that fit well and would give good protection. The fit is spot on. One thing I noticed compared to the Sidi Crossfire or the BMW Rallye boots is that the toebox appears to be higher/boxier. This may present some issues with shifting. I have yet to try it out on the bikes. Women's gear is often a compromise. The Sidi Crossfire was too high on my calf, just about to my knee joint, making it difficult to walk. I have only worn the Stella Tech 3 boots around the house so far, and comfort is excellent.

C I: Looks like a Women's specific boot, a little shorter but same tough features I like on a motorcycle boot. I also wanted to try a boot without the metal toe plate and see if it made shifting any easier.Jun 18, 2015
C F: they are women specific and I have never had a pair of mx boots before. Hopefully they will work out and stand up to the demands of mx in Alaska.Mar 13, 2015
Marie M: because reviews specified that these boots are a good fit for women (hard to find in dirt riding gear!).Aug 26, 2014
Deane S: I have the Tech 3 mens model and they rock! Comfortable yet supportive without being too stiff! i'm getting these for my wife because she is using touring boots off road and needs real protection. I'll report back later on assessment of the boots.Aug 7, 2014
A shopper asked:I'm gonna surprise my gf with these as she's getting more into dirt riding. She wears an 8.5, normally. These are only available in half sizes. How do they fit? I need to know if I should get an 8 or a 9! Thank you!Oct 11, 2014
katherine h:I would get the 8. I wear an 8 or a 39 EU size, and I only needed a 7 (38 EU) in the Stella Tech 3s. Since she's probably a solid 40, I would go with the 8. They definitely seem to run big. I even have my orthotics in them with no issues.
Hope this helps! She will love them, they are a great boot.Oct 11, 2014
Marie M:I'm usually an 8.5 in shoes, but I chose the size 8s for the Alpinestars. They fit perfect; I even have extra wiggle room for my toes. I think they run a little big. A 9 would have been way too loose on my feet.
Also, what an awesome gift to give! =)Oct 11, 2014
Jeffrey P:My wife is a 7.5 size, and she purchased a size 7 and think fit great. She has narrow feet and these boots are a bit wide which provides a bit more room. I would recommend sizing down versus up.Oct 11, 2014
A shopper asked:How are these boots for women with huge calves!?? I mean HUGE. have always had problems even finding normal everyday boots. i have wide feet and thick ankles (cankles) also. I am findng it so hard to get good boots that will fit my tree trunk legs and size 8.5/ 9 (Australia) foot! thanks in advance ! :)Jan 29, 2015
Julie A:HI I bought these last year and I love them. The straps are adjustable. I wear thicker socks because I feel the ankle is still a little big (I have small ankles), so if you need the room, I think it'll be there for you. Took about 2 good woods rides to get these nicely broken in. --Recommended.Jan 29, 2015
