How do Alpinestar boots size up? - May 13, 2008, 12:40 AM

I'm curious how an AlpineStar boot size compares to say a Timberland boot?

I know all shoes and boots fit slightly different. I'm just curious how A*s does.
i have a few of their hoodies in XXL and they fit me like anyother XL does.


Love the one you've got...

Not true to size. At least not in my experience. Or rather their conversion chart from Euro to US sizes is fucked up.

I wear a 9.5 to 10 depending on shoe brand.

I bought A* SMX+ in a 44 which is quoted as being a 9.5; this struck me as odd since usually a 43 would be a 9.5 but I figured their US sizing would be accurate and their Euro sizing was the estimate....

I was wrong. The 44 fits like a 10-10.5. I bought a size 43 and it fits more like a 9.5-10 (still a little roomy). They claim their 43 is a size 9 and there is no way in hell it is anywhere near a size 9.

Moral of the story: they're great boots but go off what you would usually wear in euro sizing and IGNORE their US estimates.

I wear a size 9 timberland boot (which are a close fit) and bought a size 43 A* boot. I wish I'd bought a 42, but the extra room isn't horrible.

+1 Ignore their US estimates.

I have Alpinestars boots and I think it fits a little bit smaller than Timberland.
