The Alpinestars Supertech Touring Gore-Tex boot was released this fall and it's really not until you see the boot in person and try it on that you come to grasp what a great boot this is. Yes, it's expensive at $459.95 and rightly so, because you just can't buy a better boot for touring and wet weather sport bike riding.
A game changer in the touring waterproof boot arena. Imagine taking characteristics from Alpinestars' top of the line road racing boot, the Supertech R, with characteristics of the best touring boot you can find and feeding them into a super computer cad machine, twist the dial a little, turn up the quality levels a lot, and see what it makes. The Supertech Touring Boot is the best waterproof sport bike boot we've ever seen. Period- and the photos and descriptions you're looking at online right now simply do not due it justice.
