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.

Great boots! Initial Impressions (LONG)
I just received these boots today and put my first 100 miles on them. I’ve worn them continuously for the last 9+ hrs.

My initial impressions of these boots are:

BACKGROUND: I’ve owned a pair of Aerostich Combat Touring Boots (CTB) for the last 15+ years and put hundreds of thousands of miles on them and resoled them 3 times. They finally are at the end of their road. My Aerostich size is a men’s 11.

FIT: The Toucans definitely run a little large. I’d estimate about a ½ size large compared to my street/athletic shoes. I’m normally a men’s 10.5 US. I have med/wide feet with high arches, narrow heel & ankles, and large calves. Using the size chart, I’m between sizes for these boots and wasn’t sure which way I should go between a size 10 or 11.

I read tons of reviews here (all 56+ reviews), watched video reviews, and read up on forums, and I was still confused as to sizing, especially if you are between sizes. Some said they fit small, others a size large and some even said they fit to size. After shooting my info to Revzilla the recommendation was to go with the 10. I can say that Revzilla’s suggestion was spot on. In fact I still have a little extra room if I wore a heavier sock during colder weather.

Hopefully this helps others in the fit department.

BUILD: Unlike some reviews, mine came perfect. This is my first boot since the CTBs so I don’t have a whole lot to compare it to, but I’ve read that Alpinestar’s can be inconsistent in their build quality. The typical comments seem to be related to sole issues (i.e. uneven sole stitching and warped sole bottoms). Of course knowing that, the first thing I did was to check out the soles and they are perfect.

The rest of the boot is also very well put together. All the panel stitching, buckles, and insides are perfectly put together.

Mine do squeak. I don’t really care. So did my other boots. IMO when you mix leather and plastic it’s gonna do that.

RIDING: Granted I don’t have a lot of time in these boots yet, but like any new boot it’s gonna feel different compared to what you already have. I’ve found that foot positioning, especially the left boot, is going to take some getting used to. The more rounded top foot area compared to my CTBs requires a different foot action to get a positive shift, specifically during an upshift. I missed my fair share of shifts today. It’s too early to say if I should just raise my shifter slightly, but I’m going to put a few thousand miles on them first on/off road before I decide.

The ankle flex is great. It’s something I really had to work on as I broke in my CTBs but is near perfect right out of the box with the Toucan.

COMPARISON: Again I don’t have a lot to compare it to but compared to the CTBs it’s night/day. Dimensionally they’re pretty close. They’re pretty much the same height but the top of the CTBs are a touch flatter compared to the Toucans. The Toucans are more rounded on the top of the foot.

The Toucans have a larger shin guard area which is pretty obvious considering the extra protection it provides over the CTBs, but the part that was a pleasant surprise is that they still fit under jeans, 5-11 style cargo pants, and all of my riding gear (Roadcrafter, BMW Rallye, and Aerostich Transit). Under jeans it does take a little work to get them over the shin guard. I wear loose fit jeans though vs. the latest skinny jeans. Not baggy but a little looser than 501s. Of course YMMV on the jeans.

Comfort was a big improvement. CTBs are notoriously tough to break-in. However after 15 yrs they were perfect. I can walk in them, set up camp after a long days ride, search for firewood, as well as, wear them all day at work which requires being on my feet for most of the day.

From the moment I put the Toucans on, they felt great. I might be exaggerating a little in saying they are as comfortable as my running shoes, but not by much. They are that comfortable from day one. After my first 100 miles in them, and going on 10 hrs of continuous wear, not one hot spot or area of discomfort. In fact I’m writing this review with them still on.

They are a little warm but not uncomfortably so, but that’s a very subjective thing.

CONCLUSION: Needing a new pair of boots, I was drawn to these because of the extra protection while riding, but also the walking comfort off the bike. High on the list was also the ability to resole and replace bits that wear out. I obviously keep my gear for a long time, so my intent was to find a boot that would last me another 15+ yrs. Waterproofness wasn’t as high on the list. I’m used to waterproofing my CTBs which are not ‘waterproof’, but with a little work and maintenance they’ve never leaked on me in driving rain or while walking through streams/rivers to scout out the best line. One thing I do like about the CTBs that very few boots in this category offer is a full leather lining….obviously it wouldn’t be gore-tex. IMO they breath the best, and the durability of a leather lining compared to other synthetic options is superior.

The Sidi Adventure Gore-Tex (because of the full grain leather), was high on the list, but I quickly remembered I don’t have SIDI feet. In the times I’ve tried on different SIDI boots in the past they’ve always been too narrow for my feet. I realize that the CTB is made by SIDI, but they must use a completely different kind of last, because they are very generous in width. The Gaerne Midland was also a consideration, but the extra protection of the Toucans w/o the downsides of off-bike use, made the difference for me. I wanted to get all the protection I could get while still keeping walking comfort.

If I had SIDI feet I may have gone that route. I personally think they look better than the Toucans and all the other features I was looking for are there also. I prefer the plainer toe box and more subdued look of the SIDI. But because the SIDIs were not an option, the Gaerne was going to be my second choice if the build quality of the Toucans was lacking. From what I hear Gaerne build quality is the bench mark in the high quality/consistency of their boots.

I am not sure if Alpinestar QC has improved or if I just got lucky, but I’m very impressed and happy with the Toucans. With all the positive reviews on this boot, my guess is Alpinestar’s quality issues aren’t nearly as bad as what is purported on the internet, but maybe still not as perfect as the other brands.

I hope to wear these a very long time. Thanks for reading and I hope this helps.

READ THIS REVIEW
I bought these as a replacement boot for riding on the street on my BMW GSA. A bit overkill in rhetrospect, they're beefy, stiff and non-sensitive. They're designed for a specific purpose: to save your foot/leg in an accident/crash from direct or indirect impact. They are more of an off-road friendly boot than a road friendly boot; they don't allow much movement in the joint (ankle) so shifting is easier when standing (a more dirt oriented position) than sitting (more street oriented). They also, like I mentioned earlier, are not very sensitive so it's hard to "feel" the brake and shift pedals and the pressure applied to them until you feel the bike react to your input (good luck finding neutral). This might sound normal and how it works anyway but you litterally can't feel the brake pedal under your foot and the pressure you apply is based on muscle memory and blind faith, so it's not really "normal." These boots are designed for the hard core adventurer who's about to ride to Patagonia or Dead Horse, or the guy who wants the utmost protection for his feet short of wearing a motocross boot. Which leads me to the dirt part of this review. I also ride a Husqvarna FE350 enduro/trail dirt bike. I am in need of a new oair of boots and recently my group was planning a ride in the high desert in northern Nevada in late January. Cold conditions, stream crossings, rocky desert terrain, etc. I decided screw it, I'll wear the Toucans. They're not being utilized to their potential on my GS, they're Gore-Tex, lots of plastic and leather; they're really just a shorter motocross boot that happens to be Gore-Tex (waterproof motocross/dirt bike boots are like unicorns). Besides, I wear over-the-boot off road pants so I knew the shorter height wouldn't be an issue. And it wasn't nothing was. These boots were made for off road. Kicked them on bolders, drug them around corners, fell down with them once or twice (I never said I could ride) and they were AWSOME. I have zero complaints about these boots and they've become my new full-time trail riding boot, as well as street boot. The only thing I wish was different is they're LOUD to walk in. They squeek and you're not going to sneek up on anyone. People look because they're so loud but then I think "yeah...check out my boots. I know you wish you had a pair..."

Nice, but you're better off wearing MX boots for TRUE ADV riding!
I've had these boots since January of 2015 and have been wearing them almost every day for commuting & weekend dirt rides. They have been comfortable, waterproof, and have protected me from small get-offs.

However, I would not recommend them for "REAL" adventure riding. I recently completed a trip to UT, NV, and back to CA on harsh trails & dirt roads, and they didn't last through the trip. The ankle pivot pulled out of the boot, and now lacks any sort of ankle protection as it doesn't limit range of motion. The assembly is poorly thought out, and should have some sort of stronger bracket internal to the boot to fasten to, instead of soft boot material.

For $500, I thought they would last longer than 2yrs of normal/mixed use, but I was disappointed. Based on this, I'd recommend going for a full MX style boot like the Tech-8 Enduro or similar, or a less expensive option from SIDI/Forma. They'll provide more support/protection when you really need it, vs. this half-calf hybrid boot.

I have contacted A* to see if they are repairable, but I'm not holding my breath. I'll update the review when there's resolution. This does not deter me from purchasing from Revzilla, as their prices and customer service are top notch!

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.

Product has great protection features
Need considerable break in. Shin protection & logo bulky can not get riding pant over boot, have to take off boots to get put on rain pants. Excellent overall protection. No problem with shifter, had to drop brake down. Not much flex yet but does seem to be breaking in. Very comfortable on bike not so walking. Fit is one size large. Size 12 fit my size 13 feet perfect.

Great investment in top quality boots
AlpineStars Toucans are awesome adventure boots that excel in multiple respects – protection, durability, comfort, light weight and waterproofness. I put mine to the test with a 9-month, 26,000-mile ride from South Africa to South Korea over many dirt, rock and sand roads and rate them top of the line.

The Toucans barely flinched through much abuse. Nothing broke, or came apart, or wore out. Very impressed with their durability owing to top quality components and materials. In a few offs, the protection I wanted was right there. My feet love the comfort of these boots, enhanced with a Dr. Scholl’s pad.

In the beginning, once they got some dust in them, the Toucans did squeak. Some applications of grease, Vaseline and WD-40 fixed that on Toucans. Compared to a pair of Sidis I had, which squeaked much more loudly and proved resistant to anti-squeak treatments, it was a small issue, readily solved.

I looked at and tried on lots of boots (all the usual suspects) before deciding on the Toucans. They have proven to be a great investment.

Great boot
I do all types of riding. I chose these boots for when I'm riding my Tiger 800xc. I chose them because I was wearing my army boots on adventure rides, but was tired of getting wet feet and having to change into socks 3x's a ride. WOW. Let me tell ya... these boots are nice, I was intimidated by the price tag, however really decided to treat myself and get what I thought (from) research looked to be the best ADV boot on the market. I believe I made the right choice. This boot is pretty lightweight considering the amount of protection it offers. I've worn these now on rides around the Country, and they have to be some of the nicest boots I've ever worn period. They are beyond comfortable. I literally can wear them day in day out non-stop riding, walking, hiking...doesn't matter. Feet may get a little warm but stay dry. I could go on and praise these boots but I think I've got my point across.

Now for the only negative I have...

Squeaky. These boots make so much plastic rubbing noise it was beyond annoying for me. So I fixed it. I used a psumatic lube jelly (for paintball guns) on the lining and underneath all the plastic where I thought the boots noise was being made. After about 10 minutes of lubing and walking it was cured. That was about a year ago. Since that day I haven't heard a squeak. I recommend any type of long term jelly based lubrication to fix the problem. Hope this helps.

Why settle for less?
I pulled the boots out of the box, put them on, and they fit perfect! Very comfortable and easy to walk in. I did a 1,000 mile California loop in them, touring both off-road and highways and they held up beautifully. Only one complaint, after 3 days of riding, they started to squeak when I walk – build integrity is solid, but a slight hi-pitched whine on every step made me feel like a retired nurse in her white rubber shoes. No big, love these boots!

Comfy, protective, but expensive all weather boots from A-Stars!
Been riding in these for a few weeks in rainy California "winter" weather, and I can confidently say that my feet are dry and warm. I normally ride with light hiking wool socks to keep my feet dry, but these have been exceptional during the downpours these past few weeks.

I chose the Toucans because I was looking for boots that were waterproof, off road capable, high level of protection, and quality made. This narrowed the search to Sidi Adventure Rain, Sidi Discovery Rain, A-Stars Toucan, and a few others from TCX/Gaerne. My A-Stars SMX-Plus (regular) have been an outstanding boot for track/daily commuting use, but are far from waterproof. Also was looking for something rugged, that I could wear for trail riding & could easily hose off at the end of the day.

It was unfortunate that they didn't come in size 45 like my SMX (those fit perfectly), but the size 11 fits adequately. I needed to tighten the boot more than "normal" to keep my heel from lifting during normal use. I'd say they run true if not a tad small, as I normally wear a 10.5 in most everything else including Red Wings.

Many ask if they squeak. YES they squeak out of the box, they're 90% plastic, what did you expect?! Haven't worn an Alpinestars boot that didn't squeak. Don't hear it when I'm riding, don't really care.

I wouldn't say these were as "walkable" as other boots, but it's probably due to the one-sided ankle pivot. Would like to try other boots in the future as I like the feel of SIDI Discovery and Garne trials boots, just lack the ankle protection I was looking for. Super easy to get on/off, not the fondest of the velcro at the top but it isn't a problem yet. If they made them in 45, I'd probably give them a 5 star. Great boots, look forward to using them thoroughly!
