Not every rider requires a race boot; some value everyday wearability over full armor. Taking to the sidewalk comfortably without losing complete protection while riding was a motivating factor in the design of Alpinestars new Joey Shoe, which are available in canvas or waterproof models.
At first glance, you'd never know the Alpinestars Joey shoes conceal sport-riding features lost on your regular everyday shoes. Dual-density ankle protectors, a reinforced toe and heel box and durable polyfoam padding on the tongue and ankle aid in comfortably light protection. The inner lining of the tongue and collar of the Alpinestars Joey shoe are made from highly breathable mesh. The Alpinestars Joey Shoe doesn't pretend to be as tough as official motorcycle boots, instead it focuses on street style and acceptable protection.
