Alpinestars Tech 8 Light Boot
Adventure bikes are hard on your ankles—just ask Tim Carrithers or Jack Lewis! Alpinestars' Tech 8 Light boots are just what the podiatrist ordered. They offer unparalleled protection and comfort, and thanks to a new design they're now 15 percent lighter, hence the designation. An internal ankle booty provides comfort and support while hard shin, calf, toe and heel armor defend against impacts and crushing forces, without compromising flexibility. The $459.95 asking price is a lot for a pair of boots, but it's cheaper than a broken ankle.
