Toe Guards and Plastic Protectors

Same as last reviewer; the rubber patch that has small allen heads popped thru and I just took it off... Also the metal toe protector has come loose and needed to be pounded back into shape. A few of the straps are hard to click in and out. I need to call Motorsport and send them back since I am healing a femur break at the moment.... Great boots though!

Great looking boots but not very durable

I've had these boots for 7 months and they're already showing alot of wear. The kick starter plate on the right boot popped out over the top screw and the screw won't come out as the backing plate is spinning freely between the boots liner and outer shell. They're under the 1 year warranty but for warranty work you're out a pair of boots for 1-2 weeks. Another friend has them and one of the straps the buckle hooks into is falling apart. He's had his for a year. Wish I would have gone with the Tech 10's, Sidi, or Fox Instinct from the start.

Great deal

These are my second pair of Tech 8 Lights, and my first pair held up very well. The soles are much improved over previous years, and lasted twice as long as my previous Tech 8 boots. I like the Tech 8 boots over other boots due to fit and feel when I'm riding & racing!

Tech 8 Lites

I have owned ony Alpinestar boots, the reason for this is that I put them on and can wear them all day with confort ride with confidence. I have not ridden in this pair of boots yet but knowing the reputation and my past experience with the boot I know for a fact I will not be dissapointed.

Questioning quality control

rubber on the inside of right boot is already tore at crease where ankle bends. no crashes or footpegs caused this. and they cost 450. not sure if I will buy alpinestars again. they aren't like they used to be 10 years ago.

Great boot!!

This is the best boot I have ever owned. Comfortable from day one and lighter than my last boot.

Been using Tech 8 since 2007. The new "Lightweight is worth the extra $ for the weight loss. Less fatigue,since I race 2 hours.

Good design but not durable

I have about ten rides on these boots and they already have a hole ripped on the inside of the right boot from my foot peg from kick starting my bike. The worst part is that on that same boot the buckle receiver by the ankle ripped off along the stitching, making the whole strap useless. overall they have not held up well. my old style tech 8 boots lasted me 2 years, these are not like the old tech 8s at all. alpinestar is going to look at my damaged boots and they have great customer service but I should not have to deal with these problems with brand new boots so soon.

Great boots

This is my second pair of Tech 8s, the first pair lasted 10 (yes 10) years. I liked the older bootie a little better because it was easier to get back into the boot than the new ankle-and-last style. The old bootie also gave the boots a more plush feel than the new style. Not sure why these are called "light", the weight feels identical to my 2002 pair (I didn't put them on a scale to weigh them though). A nit about the old boots is that the white plastic yellows and disintegrates over time.

I brought my new pair on a 2 week riding trip to the San Rafael swell area in UT. They broke in quickly and were pretty comfortable right away. Even on my last day and after +1200 miles, they were still very comfortable. The new buckles snap down nicely, but I did need to pry a couple of them open at the end of the day a couple times after getting stuck in quicksand earlier in the day. Probably not something many of you will worry about!

I bought the pair on the left in 2002, they lasted 10 years.

Buckle Problem

The boots fit great, and unlike my other boots they are easier to unsnap and snap on my feet.I did have a problem with one of the buckles coming apart from the boot but motosport gave me the info to alpinestar and they fixed them at no charge or problems.I am very happy with this product.

Worth The Money

Fits true to my gym shoe size. I thought they where real snug just out of the box. They do loosen up slightly with use. Within 5 seconds after letting the clutch out I forgot I had them on. Excellent ankle protction, light weight. After having then on for 6 + hours my feet are still comfortable. The top of the boot doesn't seal great (but my knee pads fit down in) I do get some dirt in them once in awhile and my one foot got a little wet on a really wet muddy day. Thats life.

Break em in right on the first day.

Good Purchase

The Tech 10 and Tech 8 boots have been awesome for me, but for enduro's I don't like the weight of the Tech 10's. So I was excited about these boots. They look really sharp, the buckles are smooth. The sizing is strange. I'm 6'3" and about 205lbs and the boots have a large gap at the top of the boot. Way to easy for water or something to go in. Its the cut of the boot, doesn't matter how you tighten the straps. They are light weight.

Also, the instep plastic caught on my foot pegs and ripped through the hex bolt. I had to buy some longer bolts with a washer to try and keep the piece of plastic on. See attached photo.

I contacted motosport and alpinestars about returning the boots and the motosport support was 1st rate. Alpinestars just told me to fix the boots myself by taking the bolts off. Not a good fix as the included bolts would just pull through the plastic again. Good quality boots? I don't know.. I'll find out.

Q: Are these boots water proof?

I would like to buy a size ten but before I do I Need to know if you could stand in a pool of water and if your feet would get wet? Just wondering because I race enduros and are extremely tough on my gear

A: The Tech 8 Boots in white are VENTED. So no, your feet would get wet in a pool of water.

No boot will be completely water proof. Alpinestars does make a Tech 7 Enduro boot which we would suggest for your needs.

A: They are to an extent, I have races with mine over the years and if you stand in water your feet will get wet. I rode in what seemed to be a Monsoon MX race and the river over flowed onto the track so there wasat least 2 feet of water and yes my feet were wet. However for usual racing in MX, Enduros or Hare Scrambles they do fine, just depends on how much water you are in.

Q: I am a size 10 1/2 What would be the correct size for me?

A: This would be very hard to say as even foot width can determine how well the boot will fit. Alpinestars tend to run on the narrow side. If you tend to wear thick MX socks I would go with the size 11. If you wear thin socks or prefer a tighter fit I would look into the size 10. Keep in mind if for any reason you are not happy with the selection you make, we have a great return/exchange policy to help get you taken care of.
