Alpinestars: Casual Riding Shoes

Alpinestars Boots

Motorcyclists need foot protection, but during those weekly bike meets or just a cruise downtown, walking comfortably becomes an issue while donning typical motorcycle boots.

Alpinestars is on a mission to change that with their Casual Riding Shoes – the Miglia, the Mille and the new Blacktop shoes.

These riding shoes are designed to protect the feet, but also provide comfort while walking. All of the Alpinestar casual riding shoes feature shift pad channels that dissipate pressure over the toe while changing gears, but also allow the shoe to flex naturally while riding.

New to the lineup of Alpinestars’ casual riding shoes is the Blacktop Shoe. This new shoe boasts mesh inserts for cool summer riding, and extra protection provided by a padded, colored stripe that wraps around the back of the ankle.

No matter where your bike takes you, all of Alpinestars casual riding shoes are versatile enough to make the transition from the morning commute, into the office, and out to dinner.
