The new Alpinestars Tech-1 T Shoe has been redesigned for 2019. This shoe offers driver optimum levels of comfort, fit and feel when driving. It features a bovine leather and suede construction with a suede collar. A cut-away section at the heel allows freedom of movement while operating the pedals and no pressure points while driving. Every aspect of the shoe has been carefully considered to keep weight as low as possible. A single-layer Velcro strap provides added lightness while ensuring there is no pressure point on the instep. The classic lace closure system features hidden loops on the lateral and medial to guarantee a snug but unrestricted fit.
The all-new rubber sole mimics an asymmetric tire tread. The rubber sole repels water and oil for increased grip. The mid-sole provides increased cushioning. An outer toe protector and a Nomex® lining protects the feet against heat.
