Alpinestars Tech 7 Blackjack LE Boot

Are you tired of gambling on low-quality foot protection? Then double down on the brand new Alpinestars Tech 7 Blackjack  LE Boot! The Tech 7 line of Alpinestars boots has become the gold standard for their seamless blend of protection & comfort. Riders affectionately refer to the Tech 7 as the “Tech 10 Lite” in regards to the way the Alpinestars Tech 10 boots wear. The Limited Edition Blackjack model is a step above the competition!

Tech 7 Protection

The most important quality to consider in a moto boot is the protection that it affords your foot. The Blackjack has many built-in protective features, which gives riders the confidence to go all-out! It all starts with the protective boot chassis, made from Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) which provides an excellent shield against impacts & abrasions. TPU is a lightweight material which helps reduce the total weight of the boot. A nifty protective feature on the Alpinestars Tech 7 Blackjack LE Boots is the steel shank. It helps absorb some impact stress, and also maintains the shape of your boot. It extends all the way down to the toe box, providing all-encompassing foot protection.

Tech 7 Comfort

Alpinestars pulled out all the stops to make one of the most comfortable boots on the market. Often times, riders must choose between a boot that provides ample protection and one that is comfortable to wear. The Blackjacks are the best of both worlds at only $349.95.  The first comfort feature that you’ll notice when you slip your foot in, is the semi-hinge.  Similarly priced competitors, like the Fox Racing Comp 8 boots, don’t have the hinge and take some time to work in. Having the hinge allows the Tech 7s to be worn right out of the box. It also provides you with the flex to ride comfortably without feeling stiff, while also being flexible enough to walk around the track in.

The interior of the Alpinestars Tech 7 Blackjacks features an insole that contours to the shape of your foot. The interior has tons of padding, making it feel like you’re wearing an inner bootie. However, a bootie might be a good idea if you have narrow feet. Tech 7s tend to run a bit wide inside. The upper is equipped with an elastic gaiter that prevents dirt & rocks from getting stuck inside.

I'm Corey, ever since I was little I loved bicycles. My first first bike was a mongoose and I took that thing everywhere. I would race the neighbor kids and always won, good times. Being older now my love of riding hasn't changed. I have shifted more into mountain biking though. Nothing too intense. I am in it for a nice ride and the scenery these days,
