Re: Alpinestars SMX 5 Boots
I have SMX-5s unvented and never noticed excessive heat, I now have Supertech-Rs that are vented, still dont have temp problems.
I would suggest stepping up to the SMX+ at least. The 5s have next to zero lateral support. You can take a pair and fold them in half with your hands, not enough to protect your ankles in a crash.
