Alpinestars has been making significant inroads into the slightly less MotoGP and more CafeGP side of the motorcycling spectrum in recent years, the Oscar Monty Boot is their latest foray into the genre and I suspect that it’s going to be very popular.
Although they may look like regular boots, the Oscar Monty packs toe, heel and ankle reinforcements, a gusseted tongue and a textured toe section designed to provide an ideal contact patch for your gear shifter. These boots are ideally suited to those who ride to work on a regular basis, as they can be worn as regular shoes without the discomfort of all-out motocycle boots – and they still provide some solid Level 2 CE certified protection.
