Product review: Alpinestars SMX- 1R boots

1 of 1

I test these Alpinestars SMX- 1R boots (worth around £149.99) over five years, covering 5000 miles.

With a man-made upper, these short sports-style boots have toe sliders, ankle protection and a gear-change pad.

They’ve got a zip closure and Velcro adjusters which means they fit well while being comfortable, too.

I have worn them in a variety of weather conditions although I wouldn’t recommend them for use in colder weather.

They don’t offer the same level of warmth as a full-length boot, but have proven to be showerproof when I’ve been caught out in the odd bit of damp.

Value: ★★★

Quality: ★★★★
