Alpinestars Tech 7 Boots 4 5 13 13
Poor buckle design - unsafe I put about 60 hours of offroad use on these boots this last season. Some bushwacking, and 3 races. The boot is very comfortable and looks great. Two problems: first and most serious is the buckle design. The open loop gets hung up on trail brush and limbs. I lost 1 buckle (Alpinestar replaced for free) and have had others almost ripped off. In the worst case I've had my boot ripped of my peg when getting hung up on trail debris. I can imagine this being a major safety issue and I would expect a recall. Alpinestar should at least offer a replacement buckle option. The buckle is easy to clasp and unclasp, but this convenience is outweighed by the unsafe snagging hazard. The other item is minor compared to this. The surface of the boot that grips the bike is rugged and rough and will abrade the frame guards or tank on the first ride. October 11, 2014
bucklels do not stay latched... useing duck tape to keep them latched.. not a big fan of them.. neither is my daughter.. size 4???? the buckles do not stay latched.. useing duck tape is getting old.. boots were brand new and buckels would not stay latched... still useing them but not liking them do do to loose buckels!! August 18, 2014
These boots fit and look great ! These boots are comfortable and have a great fit. The 2nd time I wore them they were perfectly broken in.Very pleased with this purchase. July 2, 2014
light - solid Have used these for about a month now, coming from SG10's Lightweight, correct sizing and easy to use buckles. Shifter is a bit vague but perhaps its just being used to my other boots. I was a bit surprised they let in water pretty easy, I will use some leather protection and waterproofing. Very comfortable, foot bed is nice and good feedback from foot pegs, brake is easy to feel. Good grip on the ground as well, slippery rocks and roots have predictable grip. April 16, 2014
the tech 7 2014 boot are amazing The 2014 tech 7 boot fits amazing i wear a size 9 shoe i ordered a size 8 fits perfect just like a glove very clean bright and they just catch a persons eyes with the colors overall amazing quality very lightweight as well i highly recommend the boots to anyone who is looking for that lightweight feel and snug fit December 26, 2013
Buy Something Else Purchased these boots about two years ago. I hated them from day 1. The buckles are the worse buckles ever to try to get out of, especially after a long hard day of riding. The last time I wore them, I resorted to using a screw driver to pry them off. One of the soles fell off and I had to use some gorilla tape so that I would be able to ride and actually kick start my bike. For the $200 price range, I would definitely recommend looking at something else, maybe Gaerne. Or fork over more money like I'm about to do to get away from the "entry-level" boots. November 21, 2012
Great features and buy for the $'s These boots run a little on the larger than actual sizing. The fastening system is great! Once you have them adjusted just unclasp and they re-clasp where you had them. They provide great protection. June 4, 2012
Pretty good boots for reasonable price. Safe and comfortable motorboats - real benefit for the rider! May 28, 2012

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Michael D: I had chosen this item because I was unsatisfied with my other boots and I wanted to bring my performance to a whole other level so I had chosen these awesome boots from alpine star. Mar 23, 2015
mirko c: Most comfortable pair of boots I've ever tried on! Apr 24, 2014
Philip N: after visiting the Philly store, and trying on boots, helmets, jackets - etc.... this boot was the best fit, the lightest, and offered great performance and function. I am replacing my ICON 1000 elsinore boots with this purchase, after nearly fracturing my shin bones during the Pine Barrens 300 last fall.

I also feel that the added ankle support (laterally) on the tech 7 will reduce fatigue that I was having from my soft ICONs.

Neil R: It looks cool even though I wanted the black yellow and red but you have been out of stock for so long Feb 26, 2014

Andrew K: Recommendation from a friend Nov 27, 2013
A shopper asked: The previous version of this boot was known to have problems with latching and closing the buckles. Some users reported having to use screwdrivers to pry the buckle open after riding. Does the new buckle design fix this issue? Nov 8, 2013

bo l: The buckles are a little hard to open but after several times of riding and getting them worn it they will start to open easier. Depending on how you try to open them sometimes they open easy sometimes they don't but they are very nice boots with strong ankle support and sturdy buckles. Dec 5, 2013

Justin B: Hello,
I purchased a set of size 11's, my perfect size shoe would be a 10-1/2. I definitely like the way the 11's fit. I can tighten the straps down as much as needed to keep everything good and tight without my feet being too cramped and cut off blood flow. There's a good amount of padding in the boot, I wear just regular work boot socks and love the way the 1/2 size up fits. One of the major concerns when I was looking for a boot was construction and materials, and I haven't found anything about this boot I don't like. I am very pleased with my decision to purchase the Alpinstars Tech 7, including the price.

Matthew Y: I wear a 15 sneaker, and 16's in the tech 7's fit really well.

I went through a lot of boots before settling on these. I use them for commuting, people look at me like I'm nuts...but pavement is hard stuff and these are very comfortable.

They squeak a lot...a little dab of lube on the hinge fixes it nicely.

Roy G: If you ride in cold weather yes otherwise I would get a 9.
I wear a size 10 sneaker and a size 10 is loose enough that I have to wear two pairs of socks even in the summer. The sizing runs on the large side.
The boots provide lots of protection.

Good luck and good riding,
Roy

A S asked: How do these boots fit around the calf. I have very large calves and have trouble buckling my boots with knee guards or braces. I currently have Gaerne SG10 and it is a struggle to get the boots closed. Are the Astar 7s any bigger? Oct 30, 2014

Justin B: These are the first pair of MX boots I've owned, so I can't give much info on how they compair to others, but I have absolutely no complaints about them at all. My calves are medium sized, 16.5 inches in circumference, and I have plenty of adjustment on these boots, and they are very comfortable with a good solid feeling support. Oct 31, 2014
Reply to Justin Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Bruce P: The new Tech 7's have plenty of room and they are expandable. I too, have large calves (17-1/2") and these boots fit great with room to expand in them it I want more flexibility in the calve area. Also, when tightened they do not pinch my calves or feel tight. The Tech 7's just feel perfect to me and I love them!! Oct 30, 2014

So the Tech 7, new for 2013. This is a legacy product in the Alpinestars' line. It's getting a complete overhaul, and we like what they've done. New for this year, we saw a brand new Tech 7, brand new Tech 10. The theme is low profile, lighter weight. The new Tech 7 is going to be 15% lighter, three and a half pounds. They're shaving a lot down, and it's now lower profile.

Before I get into any of the other changes, look at from the buckles to the side profile to the toe, even the profile coming straight on. You're going to see it's just much more streamlined, even the interior here on the medial side. Nothing is getting in the way of itself. Now remember the positioning here on the Tech 7. It's a lighter weight boot than something like the Tech 8 Light or even the Tech 10. There's no inner bootie here. It has that really short and low profile toe.

A lot of guys in the super cross side like it, a lot of guys that don't want any kind of mid inner bootie like you have with a Tech 8 Light or a full inner bootie with the dual hinge like you'd see on a Tech 10, they like that lineup of functionality. Now I will say this is also one of the few pro level boots. I will say it's a pro level boot because a pro would choose this boot based on its mix of features, sub $400.

From here, you go into Tech 3, which in my opinion is a rock solid midrange off-road boot. The Tech 7 has enough of the DNA of the Tech 10 and the Tech 8 Light, to where it really steps up into that next stratosphere. So, let's talk about fitment before I get into all the rest of the changes and walk through it nuts and bolts.

Fitment, sizes, American size. No questions here. The footbed is going to be comfortable. It's going to fit an American foot. It's a shoe. So, you shouldn't have any problems. And remember, guys. We do ship for free over $39. It's going to ship for free, no restock fees, and we're here to help you.

But also, leave me your comments and your questions as I roll through this. So you can get an idea, and I can answer your questions about the different features of the boot. So let's dive in. Let's go from the outside in.

We're going to focus on changes. First thing you're going to notice, completely redesigned buckle system for 2013. It's using cast buckles before. Now you'll see on the Tech 10 and the Tech 7. These are newer style. They're still set it and forget it, but the way that they work does two things really well. I can see here, even on the instep, these buckles on top so it doesn't get in the way in a crash.

But the way that these work is you have these big, these almost arrowheads that slide through a huge loop. What happens is they're self-adjusting. So there's room to wiggle, and they don't have anywhere to go. They almost fit into a wedge, so you can't screw them up. The nice part too is when they're caked with mud, it's easy to get your finger in there and work them. It's less small parts, like you saw with the previous iteration on the buckles on the outside.

Also, underneath these buckles, you have a few other components pulling this boot together. You have a microfiber elasticated upper here in different areas, but the main construction of the boot outside of this sueded area that has the embossed is going to be microfiber. Remember, there's six colors here as well. So that's going to be a synthetic leather. It has limited imperfections, and that's how you save that 15% in weight, going from leather to the microfiber side of things.

Also for the first time in the Tech 7, we're seeing that it's a single T.P.U. piece that wraps around the heel, wraps into the toe. The toe is completely redesigned and re-profiled. Notice this T.P. that wraps around the front of the toe into the shift panel here. So again, one piece pulling everything together, pulling upper of the boot into the dual compound sole. Alpinestars loves to talk about their soles because their soles rock.

This inner area that's high-grip around your pegs is fully replaceable, but then you have your main sole, which is a different durometer and hardest. It gives you support. It's going to offer you protection as well. Also, you can see as you move up the shin, completely redesigned on the front of the boot. Big, beefy, and it's shin protection. Rolling around with some of those external hard parts and T.P. in the back gives you now the blade system, which we only saw on the higher-end boots before, which guards against hyperflexion. So again, you have tongue-in-groove system that allows for comfort and range of motion, not going to get in the way of anything. But again, it's going to guard against impacts and hyperflexion of your ankle joint if you get yourself into trouble.

Now, staying within that same theme, let's move to the medial side of the boot. Now we have a completely redesigned heat shield that also has a grip panel to it throughout its one piece. Notice the reset stool stitching, but now it's also hinged, hinged there. So, it's going to move with you, allowing you to get this massive panel to interface with your ride that also now has a hinge for articulation So, bravo, Alpinestars. It's a continuation on what you know really works at the highest level, and that DNA of the $600 boot is now making its way down to that $360 boot or somewhere right in that $300 to $400 price range.

Other thing you're going to notice right out of the gates, look at the top of this boot, completely redesigned again, on the Tech 10 as well. It's now soft on the top. It used to have a big T.P.U. piece that was really heavy duty. Honestly you're always going to put your pants in there, but depending on how you where it and how you're built, it might get in the way at times. Now we're moving to a much softer interface for your body. It's an ergonomic and comfort feature that the top of this is just going to be set up to be a little bit more friendly.

Now when we think about, and I'm going to pull my sole out here, using a new style sole with different densities of material and shock absorption in the heel. You can see that. Let's open this bad boy up. So, pulling my Tech 10 or my Tech 7 here apart, pulling out all my poison dart frog, whatever we're going to call these, whatever we're going to call these buckles, this new style.

Notice multiple points and free floating design, even in my shin T.P.U. That's done for flexibility. If it was one solid piece, it makes it harder for you to move with the boot, or really for the boot to move with you. So, by doing that, you're adding flexibility. I moved to the inside. It's not a waterproof boot. They never are in the dirt world unless you're going in venture. What it is is a gator to try to keep some moisture and some of that incessant dirt out when you're riding for longer periods of time.

Moving to the inside, again, it's going to be comfortable. The top has been refinished, Cambrelle lining. It's wicking. It's meant to pull the sweat away from your foot out to the outer shell of the boot and evaporate it off. So as I put it back together here, one more thing to call out, you know. I've harped on a lot of the key changes here that allow you to streamline this boot, allow it to become lower profile.

But one of the things that people don't realize too is in the predecessor for this boot, it actually had a multi-piece sole that was a stitched sole. That would be interior of the T.P.U. outer shell. By using a single piece bonded sole, that's really one piece of T.P.U. that's molded with no inner stitch panel connecting this top to the bottom here. What they've been able to do is really completely shave down the profile of this boot.

This is probably the most technical low profile boot in the A-stars off-road line, when you compare it to something like a Tech 8 Light. It has that traditional sole. Even the beefier Tech 10, which is just a little bit bigger, it's a little more MX inspired.
