Review: Alpinestars SMX-S boots

Reviews and tests 22 March, 2017

We analyze...

The Alpinestars SMX-S are one of the novelties highlighted in the 2017 catalog of the Italian brand. These boots are the introduction to the sports range of the brand, so that with the SMX-S we have protection and benefits at a reasonable price.

Construction and materials

The Alpinestars SMX-S have a sports construction like the rest of SMX models: its design is ergonomic and aerodynamic. The main material is the microfiber that combines with TPU and TPR reinforcements, all to provide the protection and flexibility needed in a sports boot. Precisely, for greater flexibility, the instep and Achilles tendon have wide elastic accordion panels.

The level of protection of the SMX-S is remarkable. We find a lot of points with TPU protections, like on the top of the shank to protect the shin, the back of the leg and double-density protections on the sides of the ankle. In the heel we have a wide rigid insertion of TPR, which in addition to protecting us, offers structural rigidity to the boot and has a reflective insert. The toe also has internal protections, so the foot is reinforced.

Alpinestars SMX-SAs good sports boots, the SMX-S have TPU reinforcements all over the boot. In the image we can see the TPU in the upper part of the cane.

But the SMX-S not only offers protection to the foot. These boots have elements that prolong their life, as for example the protectors of the change lever made in TPU. These protectors improve the touch with the lever thanks to its rough surface. And finally, these boots also have a TPU slider. It incorporates the new system of Alpinestars fixation, so it is replaceable by just removing a screw.

Interiors and sole

The interiors of the boot are made of breathable fabric. We would like to mention that in the heel there is a different fabric: it is a material similar to the suede, so that the interior offers a good grip. The anatomical template also contributes to offer good support and comfort. It is made of double compound, using EVA and Lycra foam.

In the sole, we find an exclusive rubber compound from Alpinestars. The design of this sole is the same as in other sportier models, so the grip and drainage of water are secured.

Closure and adjustments

The SMX-S have been designed to be functional. The boots are easy to remove and put: its opening is lateral through wide flaps. And its closure is double: we have a zip inside these flaps and Velcro in them for an optimal fit.

In short, with the new Alpinestars SMX-S the Italian brand offers a boots with a very remarkable price-quality. The SMX-S are perfect if you are looking for boots for a sporting use but you don’t want to give up some practicality.
