Alpinestars Andes V2 Drystar

Features

  • Leather
  • CE certification
  • Waterproof
  • 1 colour (black)
  • Touring boots category

Sizes (EU): 40 – 47

Sizes (US): 6.5 – 12

The details…

The Alpinestars Andes V2 Drystar is less breathable than the Gore-Tex so if you need something for warmer climates, the Web Gore-Tex version (also in this review) might be better suited for you.

Price range:

  • $200

My opinion…

⭐⭐⭐⭐

“The Andes V2 Drystar is a comfortable entry-level sport-touring boot that is affordable” ~ Two Motion™

Likes

  • Great all-rounder
  • Great value for money

Dislikes

  • Would have liked to see a perforated version of this boot


Alpinestars Radon Drystar

Features

  • Microfibre
  • CE certification
  • Waterproof
  • 1 colour (black)
  • Touring boots category

Sizes (EU): 36 – 48

Sizes (US): 3.5 – 12.5

The details…

The Alpinestars Radon Drystar is made with microfibre in the upper part of the boot that reduces weight. Unlike many other sport touring boots, it has Velcro straps which I’m not particularly fond of but still gets the job done.

Price range:

  • $200

My opinion…

⭐⭐⭐

The Radon Drystar is a good touring boot but isn’t my favourite sport-touring boot due to the Velcro straps, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a good choice” ~ Two Motion™

Likes

  • Great all-rounder
  • Good value for money

Dislikes

  • I don’t really like Velcro straps on boots


Alpinestars Web Gore-Tex

Features

  • Leather
  • CE certification
  • Waterproof
  • 1 colour (black)
  • Touring boots category

Sizes (EU): 36 – 50

Sizes (US): 3.5 – 14

The details…

The Alpinestars Web Gore-Tex is the more breathable Gore-Tex membrane version of the Andes V2 which we looked at earlier. This motorcycle boot is a better option for warmer climates but it’s also $100 more expensive. It really just depends on what you are willing to spend and how much comfort you want.

Price range:

  • $300

My opinion…

⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Web Gore-Tex will is a great sport-touring boot and allows more breathability that the Andes V2 doesn’t” ~ Two Motion™
