The overall fit/size of this new style seems “true” to their published size chart (see below), so if you are comfortable with a certain size from previous boots, then choose the same size. I’d consider the width of the men’s sizes to be normal to slightly wide (D or E).

Our Two Cents
The S-MX 2 boots offer a low-cut style with some added protection features not often found in short boots or shoes. The low-cut Achilles’ heel area allows flexibility at the ankle, and the soft ankle collar keeps the boot from cutting in. Personally, I am not a fan of hiking type boots because the neck of the boot bugs me, but for those of you who are used to hikers or high top tennis shoes, you shouldn’t have a problem. The ratchet closure across the instep gives the boot some fit adjustability. The molded heel offers some good impact protection and the high ankle area should provide more protection than an everyday street shoe. The boot also comes with replaceable toe sliders for the more aggressive rider. There are also toe shifter pads on the boots to prevent wearing through the top from shifting. Take the “View Larger Pictures” link above to see some good closeups of these boots and their features.
Note on Waterproof Version: In early 2011 the waterproof version of this boot was discontinued and is no longer available.
Happy Customers Who Bought This Product
I love my Alpinestars SMX1 boots! They fit perfeclty, although I recommend going down a bit on the sizing from what you normally wear. They are so comfortable I can wear them all day on and off the bike. (Read more...)
These boots are wonderful. Comfortable on both my bikes and offers great protection, sporty enough to evoke the race boot feel but comfortable enough for a long day. Have worn them all day with walking around, they were just what I was looking for in a boot. (Read more...)
