Taking some ques from their Formula 1 experience, the Alpinestars Faster Vented Shoes are the perfect hybrid between a sport boot and casual shoe. Interlaced mesh paneling and abrasion-resistant microfiber cover double density TPU ankle protectors and a reinforced toe box and heel counter. A 3D mesh lining helps keep air moving throughout, keeping your feet dry and cool.

Welcome to our detailed breakdown of the new Alpinestars Faster Vented Shoe, available at RevZilla.com. The Faster is a riding shoe, make no mistake about it, lightweight with basic protection. The Faster is also the replacement for the Fastlane that we have seen in previous generations do so well from Alpinestars. This is a new vented version. I have three in front of me, vented white, vented black. This is the actual Faster non-vented, I just wanted to give you guys a shot. It has its own detailed breakdown video on it. Watch that. It does come in a non-vented. There is also a waterproof version as well.
Moving back to our vented version. Vented is more opted for summer-weight riding. So, late spring, all summer, early fall, Texas, California, guys that see more heat than they ever do cold or even temperate season, this is going to be the option or you. You are going to notice the big standouts here, perforated leather on the side, and really it's that microfiber. Big area of mesh paneling along the back, more perf up here along the area that's going to be the cuff covering up your ankle, and then if we look at it, you are going to see a mesh tongue as well. It is going to flow air. So remember, very similar boot in the Faster, but the Faster vented is designed to optimize for airflow.
Now, over the Fastlane, which was the previous version, they have made some other basic changes, which I am a fan of. One is this restyled T.P.R. that is one piece, gives you a better patch of coverage. Two, is going to be a beefed up cuff area around your ankle, with an area of much better protection and thickness here along the lateral side, along the medial side. And then, you actually do have a more beefed up heel as well. And that's actually something that I've noticed as a nuance in this change from Fastlane to Faster, but I am a fan that they did it, and they kept the price point very similar. Just over that $100 mark, and from here, you are going really technical into something like the SMX1 riding shoe.
Now, if we dial back into it, and let's talk about fit. Again, not surprise with Alpinestars. I'm about a nine and a half in a pair of Nikes. I wear a 43. Again, no issues with the American market, Alpinestars has been playing here for twenty-some odd years. So, they know how our feet are. But then again, on the flex scale, it is going to be about a six out of a ten. Very comfortable, easy to walk around off the bike. Designed really as a riding shoe to look great under a pair of jeans, not as tech as a lot of the boots we see from Alpinestars. Remember, if you are so concerned about fit, we do ship for free. Love to hear your gut reaction on the new version of the faster, compared to the Fastlane from Alpinestars. Really just a bang for the buck factor in this bad boy from a style standpoint, here at this, around $130 mark. And remember, leave me those comments, those questions, that feedback on RevZilla TV or our YouTube Channel.

Diving back into the main construction of the boot, some of the other nuances. Remember, microfiber and mesh, they are going to be synthetic materials, almost this carbon fiber style on the medial side, along the inside and the instep, embossed here around the shift area. Rounded laces, same as the last version, with eyelets that have reflective to them. Remember, they have moved up that strap for better support here on the top of the cuff, they have eliminated actually some of the laces they used to run up here as well. And if we look at the sole, laser ablated sole from Alpinestars, nonslip, flexible, easy off the bike, but again, you will get great tactile response from your motorcycle. Remember, lightweight riding shoe, great for a lot of uses, but it is going to look good when you pull up on your new Ducati monster and you walk into the bar. That is what this is designed for, and in all honesty, we've seen a lot of guys in that urban street-fighter market absolutely love this shoe or just rock it to work every day if they are a commuter.
