Joe,

I currently have a Tech 1-R, MX-1, T-RC-1 Air-Flo Jacket and a couple of older leather A-Stars jackets. All the leather ones are a size big and still snug.

A decent collection to round out the year. Thanks. I'm always curious about this kind of thing.

Alpinestars does not offer a specially made wide boot and the reason is that their boots tend to work very well for folks with wider footprints. A key factor of any boot maker is the foot molds they use to form the basis for their sizes and will often make or break the footwear company based on their ability to get sizing right for the fee they fit.

Alpinestars, typically will suit riders with wider feet better than, say SIDI and a few other brands.

Is there a particular type of boot you were looking for?

I'd be glad to offer any professional assistance i can, whether you buy from us or not.

I sell Alpinestars boots SIDI, Puma and Gaerne, as well as a few others, but those are out main brands

Good to know Joe. We occasionally get a client who sizes a bit wider (EE or more) than we can accommodate. Will now refer them to Alpinestars and you in particular. Appreciate your helping even those foolish enough not to buy from you. Better to deal with a professional committed to selected brands than the MotoWallmarts claiming "expertise" in anything and everything.

We have a few good sizes in stock.



Sale Price: $150.00

Alpinestars Halo Leather Jacket

At $389.95 plus shipping we probably sold ten of these last year. At $150 and free shipping, I've sold 10 in the past 4 hours.

A solid basic black leather motorcycle jacket, but, by Alpinestars, so it's better than 90% of the other junk out there.
awesome deal, i couldn't refuse. just ordered a 52. i'm a 40 chest, 33 waist, 6', 175-180lbs so debated looking elsewhere for a 50, but all you guys have left are 52s so i figure i'll give it a shot. room for layering i guess if it's a bit loose.

last month i got a alpinestars verona air to replace a joe rocket mesh and was very impressed with alpinestars quality so am excited to get one of their leather jackets for cooler weather. got a bioform back armor in medium, hope it can go back and forth between the verona air and halo.

cheers

Have a question about Alpinestar boots - I have a really old pair that I use daily for commuting. they are only 10 inches tall, but still proper boots. I can't find a name on them, other than a goretex label.

I need to replace them, but all i see are either full height boots (12 -13 inches) - which are awkward with normal clothes and when i have to take them on/off a lot. else I see small street/commuter booties that are just over the ankle, which I don't like - they don't feel safe to me.

Are you currently offering anything that is around 10 inches high?

my spidey sense tells me you may be talking about the Alpinestars Ridge Boots http://www.motostrano.com/ridgeboots.html

Well, not really. Here is what I have currently:



They are 11 inches at the highest point ( not 10 as I mentioned before):



Here is a comparison to a regular boot of about 13 inches:



What I like about my old ones is they are easy to wear with jeans over the top, and so are great for comutting. Full size boots are a lot more trouble when you are comutting. However the ones I have still provide good coverage and good protection.

Does Alpinestar still make anything like this? How tall are the ones you gave me the link for?

ah yes. the closest Astars has to a boot like the one in your photo would be the lastest Alpinestars WEB Gore-tex, shown here:

http://www.motostrano.com/alrotobo.html

another option would be the Tech Touring Gore-Tex Boots
