2014 ALPINESTARS TECH 10 BOOTS
COLORS: White, black, green, orange, patriot, red/yellow
The 2014 Alpinestars Tech 10 boots are arguably the best boots available on the market today. Brand new and being proudly worn by professional teams the world over, the Alpinestars 2014 Tech 10 Boots are already a proven winner. Alpinestars originally released the Tech 10 Boot in 2004, and at that point in time the Tech 10 Boots were considered by many ahead of the game. These boots were very technically advanced and eventually paved the way for others to follow. It was the first boot to feature the molded sole, the outside frame utilized TPU rubber making it extremely protective, and the inner booty was taken from the tech 8 for added comfort. A few years later in 2009 the boot received minor updates adding comfort and weight savings. Now the 2014 Alpinestars tech 10 boot has been totally revamped. Reborn with all of the same characteristics as before, Alpinestars has taken protection to the next level. By utilizing TPU material to contour the boot’s frame, protection has been added significantly to the toe, foot, heel, ankle, calf, shin, and Achilles tendon. With the replaceable dual sole, riders can get extensive life out of these boots making it worthwhile to spend the extra money as the safety benefits outweigh cheaper boots. With so many advancements and safety features, it comes as no surprise that the 2014 alpinestars tech 10 boots are choice for Ryan Villopoto, the 2013 AMA Supercross and Motocross Champ.
