The boot we are going to specifically talk about today is the Alpinestars S-MX 5 Boot. This boot was developed using all of the latest technical footwear designs and material know-hows in the industry today. The S-MX 5 is notable for its superior comfort and safety performance. Alpinestars aimed this boot at the everyday riding individual that wanted to step up their protection from the average sneaker shoe. In order to do that, Alpinestars had to make this boot just as comfortable as those shoes, and with double injected PU shields in the shin, ankle, calf, toe and heel they were able to create a boot that feels like a shoe but has the protection of a boot.
Check out our Alpinestars S-MX 5 Boot Video Review:
Externally the S-MX 5 is a tame boot that doesn’t have the flash of many race inspired boots. This is on purpose once again. This boot needed to be calm and reserved so that walking through a mall was easily done without people gawking at you. But it also needed to double for track duty if someone wanted to enter into a track day.
This boot like many others is using an inner protection system, this is done by a double injected panel connected to the hell counter, hidden beneath the out shell and running up the outer ankle. Incorporated into the boot is a quick drying polyamide lining that is laminated with open cell foam and high density contoured padding to absorb shocks to the foot area. The boot uses an innovative air vents at the ankle, heel and forefoot that are covered with a specially designed mesh to provide unmatched levels of comfort. With a Large throat profile instep and Achilles flex bellows for superior flex and comfort.
Keeping comfort in mind they are using innovative inner side entry opening/closure system that features and elastic mounted zipper with an extra wide Velcro flap, to give precise, comfortable fit and wide opening aperture for ease of access.
This boot comes in a few different color waves; Black Vented, Black, Black/Red, Black/Blue, White, and Black Waterproof.
