The Alpinestars Gunner WP are waterproof boots with short shank that are looking for the maximum comfort during all the year round. These boots offer protection combined with comfort in all weather conditions at a good price.
Construction and materials
The Alpinestars Gunner WP have been made with syntethic material, very similar to the leather but more resistant. The boots have short shank, offering good protection to the ankle.
General view of the Alpinestars Gunner WP boots.
Their construction include accordion areas in the instep and the Aquilles tendon, offering flexibility and comfort both when riding the bike and also when we are walking when we get off the bike. On this construction, there is a waterproof membrane placed between the internal layer and the external area.
At a first sight, the Alpinestars Gunner WP do not have external protections, but on the internal are there is a double density reinforcement on the ankle and also the toecap and the boots' side, offering rigidity and resistance.

In the instep we find a protector and there is also a protection in the shank's area, with a multi-layer laminated, an innovative version from Alpinestars.
Interiors and ventilation
All the boot's inside are padded, offering a great comfort in all the areas. The waterproof layer allows a correct breathability and for an optimal ventilation, we find a microperforated panel on the boot's external side. There are two air outlets in the TPU protector placed on the heel.

The main closure of the Alpinestars Gunner is a Velcro strap with a metallic ring and side adjustment, while in the shank there is a wide Velcro panel. As a detail, we have to highlight that the boots feature a reflective panel in the rear area.
