Product Review: Alpinestars S-MX6 Gore-Tex boots
Alpinestars S-MX6 Gore-Tex boots, £229.99
Time tested: 12,000 miles/one year
What’s good? Like the suit, these boots have been used in temperatures well below zero as well as in the heat of the Sahara and they’ve been faultless. They’re some of the best fitting boots I’ve ever used and the lining is lovely and soft. They’ve endured a year of daily use with no signs of excess wear and so far they’ve kept all the water out when other bits of kit have failed. I think I’ll be holding on to these for a while.
What’s not? Unsurprisingly, since these are fully waterproof boots, they were a little warm in Tunisia, making my feet and lower legs sweat. I’m not a huge fan of the zip and Velcro fastening system, which I sometimes struggle to open far enough, but it does provide a secure fit.
