On or off the bike, SMX-1 R vented boots are the bomb diggity when it comes to versatility and protection, without the shin-high motorcycle boot style. These boots, which are really high-top shoes, provide plenty of protection without making it feel like your feet are in some sort of solitary confinement. You just step into comfort, hit the road or wear ‘em around town as they’re well-suited for all-day use.


A perforated, abrasion-resistant material is used on the sides and toebox of these boots while a flexible microfiber mesh material is fitted over the upper portions. The goal here is the delivery of copious quantities of cooling air as these are purpose-built hot weather riding boots. To protect these materials from excessive wear, thermoplastic polyurethane panels are fitted on the shifter area and all around the heel counter. For those of you that corner low, replaceable toe sliders are fitted as standard.


At the bottom, your feet will float on Alpinestars’ specification road-going rubber. This hard-wearing material keeps your feet firmly placed on the bike while permitting plenty of flexibility when you’re afoot around town. Further conspiring to provide a comfortable fit are the EVA foam and Lyrca-made footbeds above which a soft, anatomically-shaped liner pulls sweat and moisture off your feet.

Most convenient of all, there are no shoelaces to get caught in the chain here, just zip in and lock the simple Velcro closure that pushes your entire foot inside the boots in a secure, reliable manner.

Available in black as well as colored varieties, these boots will become a versatile part of your riding loadout!

I can say from a crash test of these boots that they are much more protective than they look, they do lack a bit in the ankle support area and although they are designed to let air flow, they still tend to lead to sweaty feet if worn all day. Regardless, these are my daily shoes. On my second pair. put just over 10k miles on this pair and still have plenty of tread life. The outters look almost as good as the day I first bought them too. well worth the purchase.
