Alpinestars Tech-1 shoes offer optimum levels of comfort, fit and feel.
Alpinestars says it best! Tech-1 T offers drivers optimum levels of comfort, fit and feel. Featuring a bovine leather and suede construction with a suede collar, the shoe boasts a cutaway section at the heel to allow movement while operating the pedals with no pressure points while driving. Every aspect of the shoe has been carefully considered to keep weight as low as possible; the Velcro strap is a single layer for added lightness, while also ensuring there is no pressure point on the instep, and the classic lace closure system features hidden loops on the lateral and medial to guarantee a snug but unrestrictive fit.
The all-new rubber sole, which mimics an asymmetric tire tread, is water repelling and oil resistant to offer high levels of grip and thicker for enhanced levels of comfort in and out of the car, while the midsole offers reassuring levels of cushioning. Other neat touches include an outer toe protector for comfort and durability and a Nomex® lining to protect the entire foot against heat.
