Sizing Information

We tried on a selection of sizes in the Faster shoe and found them to fit true to size, so our advice is to choose the size you normally wear in street shoes. The width is “medium” or C/D.

Our Two Cents

The Alpinestars Diesel Akio Shoes are a new collaboration between DIESEL (the European clothing manufacturer) and Alpinestars for 2021. The shoes are a high top lace up style with protective features.

I’m looking at the Green colorway today and it looks very military-esque style sneaker with green on the toe but most of the rest looks more brown to me. The toe box and heel are a leather/suede combo that looks great and the rest of the shoe is a canvas like material.

Overall this feels like a nice, sturdy shoe. Like most hightop riding shoes, this shoe has some reinforcement in the heel, toe box, and a stiffened shank. I can feel protectors built into either side of the ankle bones, too.

These shoes are a great option for cool to warm weather and dry conditions. There isn’t much venting or waterproofing here.

Even though this is a “designer” shoe colaboration the pricing is in line with what we would expect from Alpinestars. If you aren’t crazy about having the Diesel logos on your shoes you can check out the Alpinestars Primer Riding Shoe which has similar styling but without the branding. :: Mike, 10/6/21

Alpinestars Says: A protective riding shoe which can be worn off the bike casually for off bike urban activities, the AS-DSL Akio Shoe boasts a causal last which gives it an excellent spongey underfoot feel for all-day comfort.
