Alpinestars rose from the depths in 1963 thanks to a man named Sante Mazzarolo who started the company in an Italian town called Asolo.
Asolo is a town in the Veneto region of Northern Italy and is known as the Pearl of the province of Treviso, also known as the City of a Hundred Horizons, thanks to its beautiful mountainous backdrops. Alpinestars start is quest to become one of the most demanded manufacturers in on-road and off-road racing.

Alpinestars Tech Series
The new modeled Alpinestars Tech 7 motocross boots from Alpinestars has been redefined to be better for a more comfortable fit, better look, and most importantly an improved protection system. All of these newly defined qualities make this one of the number one choice amongst motocross riders around the world. These boots have been engineered to be lighter and provide riders with better protection thanks to their newly innovated TPU lateral ankle protection; this ankle support system is constructed from a biomechanical link between the middle lateral and the bottom lateral of the boot. This ankle support system helps reduce the chances of your ankles from being sprained as well as reducing the risk of tearing ligaments as the brace protects against torsional forces. The torsional forces are a result of your foot, toe, or heel getting snagged on a rut, branch, or a part of another rider’s bike and causing serious injury to your lower extremities. Along with that, these boots are designed with an instep and Achilles accordion flex zones that increases the boots flexibility while also increasing support and comfort.
Boots can vary heavily in stiffness and flexibility and it depends on the rider’s personal preference, riding style, and type of riding they will be doing that depicts which type of stiffness or flexibility they are looking for in a boot. Depending on what type of riding you are doing such as: motocross, desert, enduro or supercross riding, you should look for the right stiffness of flexibility that will most support your feet and provide you with maximum comfortability. A common misconception of this option is “well if I have more flex I should be more comfortable on my rides as I will be able to move my foot more freely” WRONG! In some cases, yes, more flexibility makes for an easier to wear boot, but it also leaves your ankles susceptible to injury under high impacts like when you case or overshoot a jump. Although this may deter individuals away from these types of boots, flexible boots are not bad boots by any means! In fact top tier companies like Gaerne, Sidi, Fox and many more produce boots that have hinges built into the boot to help riders gain a full range of motion, have an easier break in period, and give them the flexibility they prefer to rider at their best.
I currently have Gaerne SG 10s and these boots have the same hinge feature on the ankles. I have had these boots for over 7 years, and although they are falling apart on me and losing grip, chances of me switching to a different boot are slim to none. The comfort levels, range of motion, durability, structural rigidity, are on point, and I do not ride hard enough to prefer a stiff boot. Stiff boots like the Alpinestars tech 7s, 10s, and Fox Comp 5s, are perfect for all purpose riding as they have a great break in period that will give riders the perfect amount of flex over time without losing too much of their stiffness. Obviously, the newer the boot the more stiff it is going to be. Supercross riders tend to have stiff boots to reduce the amount of impact stress the tracks have on their ankles because let’s face, these guys need every bit of protection when riding gnarly Supercross tracks, especially A 1. Stiff boots help support the rider’s ankles a little more as the impacts are lessened by the boot remaining, well stiff. Regardless of what type of boot you wear, with today’s technological advancements in protection, engineering and design, motocross boots are going to do their job and help you walk away safely from the track.
Take the technology integrated into the new Alpinestars Tech 10s for instance; these boots are some of the most sought after dirt bike boots from Alpinestars as they feature a lightweight full grain leather microfiber impact and abrasion resistance TPU Shell. The tech 10s incorporate an evolutionary TPU shin plate construction that increase the rage of fitment for riders with larger calves and longer legs, and securely wraps around your upper calve with its reinforced Velcro closure system that allows for a comfortable and customized fitment. A major reason behind incorporating the TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) is that this material is hard and unique structure that allows it to have high resilience, great compression qualities, and resistant to impacts, abrasions, wear and tear, and weather. These characteristics of TPU decrease the shin zone to ability to be hyperextended while providing optimal flex control. On top of that, the medial facing panel is also constructed from TPU that has a rubber insert that increases grip to provide riders with the ideal amount of bike grip and control; the rubber insert also improves the boots resistance to heat and abrasions. Redesigned to be better than ever, the Alpinestars Tech10s have an innovative TPU rear blade system to protect the heel, toes, foot, ankle and calf regions, and with an extra hard compound on the toe-box, heel and Achilles tendon your foot will be heavily guarded throughout your entire ride! Check them out for yourself and don’t just take my word as to why these boots are some of the most demanded motocross boots on the market and see what all the hype is about!
