Alpinestars Tech 10 Boots, £399.99
Miles covered/time: 1500 off-road/six months
What’s good? Almost everything! Despite the hefty price tag, these boots are worth every penny – the moulded soles offer great grip on the bike and are excellent to walk about in – unlike a lot of other motocross boots I have owned.
They also feature an incredible inner boot ‘brace’ system for increased protection, which means the boots are very comfortable and fit brilliantly.
The moulded plastic ‘gripper’ panels on the inside calf area make it easy to grip the bike’s frame when riding.
What’s not? They could do with slightly better ventilation, and I sometime struggle when undoing the top clips – and they occasionally pop open when riding.
Also bloody heavy to pack in your luggage on a flight! And yes, they are pricy.
