Astars Supertech R Boots - April 28, 2012, 10:46 AM

Anyone use them? Worth it? Will be mostly street and some track (once I get my suit tailored up). I'm worried more about performance and comfort than cost, but also don't want to drop cash on something that won't live up to the hype.

I have em.. Love em, but not really a street boot.. A bit too bulky to wear under jeans, but they really are comfy, and offer a TON of protection. As a track boot they are pretty damn hard to beat.. nothing to snag on hard parts..

If I'm just running around town, I'll throw on my Dainese race out air boots under cortech jeans - they're pretty wide at the bottom and might fit over these, but if I'm riding highway, I usually wear leather pants that tuck in, so shouldn't be too much of a prob. Just wanted to see if the there's a consensus that they are worth it. STG says sizing runs about one size smaller for Euro sizes. That sound right? I run 44 on Dainese, so 43 on these?

I have a pair of Dainese TRQ-Race Outs and they do not fit true to size in my experience. I wear a size 11 shoe but a size 43 boot. Sounds like the Supertechs might fit similarly...

I have them. They're comfortable and offer lots of protection for the track; been down twice in them and no foot injuries. But i dont know if i'd want to wear them for a long time if not riding. They're made for racing/track days, not going to dinner or the mall, and I think they do their job well. I have a pair of Sidi Streetburners that I think are comfortable for everyday activities but they're not tall enough for the track. I guess it comes down to what function you need most. Hope that helps.

I have the Supertech version before the 'R' came out.

Top notch boot. A* is a ridiculously nice company and they fixed up my boot even though it was waaaay past warranty and reasonable expectations.

I crashed at least once in this boot (lowside) and didn't feel a thing.

Once my current Supertechs get worn out, I will buy my 3rd pair of Supertechs.
