Alpinestars has just released a trio of casual riding shoes.
The Mille is a tall riding shoe that features a speed lace system: just
tug on the laces and use the Velcro closing tabs to secure the ends. An
oiled-suede upper with leather panels is abrasion and water resistant
and a soft compound rubber sole provides slip-free grip. Available in
sizes 6-13 for $169.95 US.
The Blacktop is a high-cut laced shoe that features a microfiber upper with cooling mesh inserts for those hot days. Additional protection comes via dual-density lateral and medial ankle cups, as well as a padded stripe that wraps around the ankle. Retail price is $109.95 US, in sizes 6-14.
Finally, the Miglia shoe offers lower protection but higher style. This is a low-cut shoe that offers maximum walking comfort with a breathable 3D air mesh lining. An oiled suede upper uses an offset speed lace system with hidden lateral pockets for stowing the lace ends. Available in black or gray, sizes 6-14, for $129.95 US.
