The Alpinestars Fastlane shoes are not brand new for this year’s fall release, but the waterproof variant is. Designed specifically for urban riding, Alpinestars Fastlane Waterproof shoes feature an anatomically profiled footbed for a natural posture on and off the bike. This, along with a breathable mesh inner liner and an abrasion resistant microfiber outer skin let your feet relax not matter what you’re doing. The textiles that surround the foot also incorporate a waterproof membrane that keeps water out, while simultaneously allowing them to breathe.

Designed with inspiration from the Italian company’s work in the four-wheeled category, these riding shoes are extremely comfortable. This isn’t only because of their shape and breathability, but also their lightweight and flexible outer chassis. Just like Alpinestars’ automobile shoes, a metal shank runs the length of the sole to impart rigidity for added safety. Thermoplastic resins are used on the outer toes and around the ankle for extra impact protection. At the top of the shoe, a Velcro strap secures the laces out of the way so they don’t get caught up in your bike’s moving parts. There’s even a set of reflective inserts embedded on the back of each shoe to provide a little added contrast of your silhouette at night.

If you are interested the Fastlane WP Shoes, or any other Alpinestars motorcycle gear, just give MIKE a call at 866.931.6644 ext. 804 or send him a PM through this forum and he’ll be happy to get you more information.

The Alpinestars Fastlane WP shoes are available in Black or Black/Hi-Viz Yellow (shown here).




The integrated waterproof membrane is breathable so that it keeps water out without trapping moisture in.




Built-in toe sliders are made of TPR.




Reflectors on the heel add all-important visibility for when you are riding in low light conditions.

At the time of this post, the Riders Discount headquarters is in the midst of a fall rain shower. That makes the Alpinestars Fastlane Waterproof shoes an excellent choice for a day like today. While they aren’t a riding boot, they do offer more protection than a regular shoe. On top of that, the waterproofing makes them ready for a variety of weather conditions - whether you’re on or off the bike.

Here’s a look at the Alpinestars Fastlane WP Shoes in Black.
