i just bought the Alpinestars SMX-5 boot and for the few days that ive had them i think they are a very nice riding boot.


i got them for $225.99 at a local bike shop.

Kinda pricy if you ask me. Vendors here would give you 15% or more off MSRP, not 5 buck more MSRP. They are good riding boots, not really protective, but kinda ok for 200 buck.

hooray for gear!!! regardless what you paid for them, like suu said, it's good to see people gearing up. i myself bit the bullet and picked up the sidi vortice airs. no matter what though, gear up, ride safe.

those smx5s are a good choice! slid out a month ago, glad i had those boots!! foot was under the bike for a second and if not for that protection would have grated my ankle like cheese! hardly notice the scars on the boot tho :)
and i dont think i can keep from saying the deal i got on them this season! local moto shop was geting rid of their floor stuff, ended up buying them for $78 after tax :DDD
no deal on boots will ever feel the same :p again awesome choice!
