Best Surf, Skate & Street Hiking Shoes in 2020



Alpinestars Men's 265401810-10.5 Shoe (Black, Size 10.5) Review:


If you're reading this you're probably wondering what I was. Are these just tennis shoes? Do they offer anymore protection than my Adidas? The answer is, kind of. This shoe is a compromise. The upper (part that covers the top of your foot) offers zero protection to your feet. It's basically a tennis shoe. It's thin fabric. The only exception to this is at the heel. It's hard and stiff. However, the sole of the shoe is much stiffer than your typical tennis shoe. It's not quite as stiff as a motorcycle boot, but it is stiff. You could stand up on your pegs and not feel like the shoe is bending around the peg or digging into your foot. Despite the stiff sole it's still comfortable to walk in. It's probably not as comfortable as running shoes, but still pretty comfortable. Would I buy these again? Yes, probably. Am I going to ride with them? Again, yes, because I want a shoe I can ride with and also walk around. If you're a hardcore, all the gear all the time, type of person you definitely wouldn't ride in these, but it's hard to be that type of person if you (1) live in the Texas heat and (2) ride daily.
