ASK THE MXPERTS:
ARE ALPINESTARS SUPER VICTORY BOOTS STILL AVAILABLE? WHERE CAN I GET THEM?
I have seen photos of Jody wearing all-white Hi-Point Champion boots (excuse me, Alpinestars Super Victory boots). And I know that when Ricky Carmichael raced for Fox he had them make him a special pair of boots that were mostly leather (because he wanted a lighter boot because of his knee injury). I know that no one carries the white ones, but where can I get the black, all-leather, Alpinestars Super Victory boots?
Alpinestars, who made the original Hi-Point Champion boot, no longer imports the all-leather boot to the USA. Jody’s white Super Victory boots are specially made for him by Alpinestars. But, black Super Victory boots are still available through enterprising importers that bring them in from Italy (but you have to order them when they become available because they normally don't last long).
Metro Racing has them in stock right now! They retail for $299 and are available in sizes 5 through 13.
