Alpinestars boots for the city gent!

Published: 18 May 2010

If the Great Gatsby wore motorcycle boots... The Alpinestars Dolomiti Gore-Tex boot is made mainly from mesh with leather inserts.

It also features a Gore-Tex XCR waterproof and breathable membrane. Although they might look fairly brittle, there's a rigid steel shank insert, heel counter, toe reinforcement, foam-padded ankle cups and padded gearshift pad.

They're available in black or brown, in sizes 5-13 (Euro 38-48) and cost £139.95.
