In 1963, a leather craftsman by the name of Sante Mazzarolo began the journey that would become a Global Leader for Motorcycle Gear . Based in the small Northern Italy town of Asolo and with the perennial Alpine star flower as it's namesake, Mr. Mazzarolo began producing the first products bearing the Alpinestars moniker. At that time a new sport called motocross was establishing itself and becoming quite popular across Europe.Alpinestars Boots Very much aware of the sport, Sante realized an opportunity to apply his talents and technical acumen to design a new type of footwear that would meet the protective needs and demands of this beautiful yet brutal form of athleticism. The revolutionary boot that Mr. Mazzarolo produced would become an archetype for motocross protection.
Early on, Alpinestars Motocross Boots caught the attention of motocross racing legend Roger Decoster who became one of Alpinestars first sponsored athletes and brand ambassadors. From that moment a rich heritage in motorcycle racing was born, which would branch into road racing in the late seventies. Now, nearly 50 years later, Alpinestars has kept countless world champions past and present safe and produces the highest level of performance and protective footwear and apparel. To this day, Alpinestar's legacy of motorcycle racing and it's roots in Italian artistry are stitched into every garment.
