Product Review: Alpinestars SMX 6 boots

Alpinestars SMX 6 boots, £189.99

Time tested: Four months, 1200 miles

What’s good? These boots from the Italian giants of the motorcycle clothing industry are everything you would expect from one of the world's most respected brands. Supremely comfortable with plenty of protection hidden within their inner-shell, the fit is generous when compared to race boots, but they’re still great for the track as well as being perfect for longer road trips.

What’s not? These aren't the waterproof Gore-Tex  version - for that privilege you'll need to spend an extra £40. This meant that after riding for three hours in the rain during December I had collected several centimetres of west country precipitation around my ankles.
