Alpinestars Supertech R Boots - Closeout
The Supertech R boots are extremely light and comfortable, even with the internal brace- it's very surprising that a boot with so many safety features can feel so good off the bike as well as on it.
Note that they seem to run a half-size large (which many reviews around the net have stated)- I've always worn a US size 12 (Euro 47)- I bought a pair of these in US size 11.5 (Euro 46) and they fit perfectly.

Oh so comfortable
These boots are very comfortable. These boots are stupid expensive. Repeat both sentences as needed. The longer I have them, the more the price fades from memory, but I do recall they aren't cheap. The boots have great feel, I can sense the bike, and can feel the controls easily. The boots I purchased have no venting, so air flow isn't ratable. I'm also assuming the protection is top of the line, I haven't tested that out and would rather not. They go on easily, and are as comfortable as any shoe I own. I wear a size 11 shoe and the 10.5 fits me perfectly. The boot seems to have a lot of safety features, and I hope in an impact they actually perform. The comfort was out of the box, no break-in time needed, for me.

Like wearing bedroom slippers... with all the protection. Extremely comfortable. As most say and so will I, wish they weren't so expensive. ALL boots are over priced. As for the Supertech R's, you get what you pay for comparing apples and apples. Fit true to size... 9.5/10 = 44

I was very thankful when I read many reviews to find out the true size of the boot. Also talking to the guys over the phone at Revzilla helped out tremendously with my purchase of the Supertech R's. The sizes are different from you standard boot. I normally wear a 44, but the 45's fit perfect. I wear 10 1/2's US if that gives you an idea. At first look: The boots are extremely light, and are very stylish. The inner boot offers very functional protection, allowing for natural movement and providing excellent protection for impact areas. The boots are extremely comfortable. I could wear them all day. After talking with the guys at Revzilla, they recommended that I stick with the non-vented boot since most of my riding is up in the NorthWest where the temps aren't above the 95s for very long. When it comes down to it the non-vented boots are more versatile. Your feet may get warm in the higher degree temps, but realistically what's the difference of a few degree in your boots. The non-vented boot can be worn in all temps of riding. Thanks for the help revzilla, and the Supertech R's are bad***!!!
