Alpinestar Boot Repair Question

1554 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  BLACKeR
Any of you guys ever tried putting Tech 8 soles on Tech 4 boots? The tech8 has the replaceable insert so I was thinking that would be the way to go on my tech4. The boots are only 2 years old and I've worn through the arch area. I'm guessing a shoe shop can easily put them on if the soles fit right.

i had tech 6's that had the replaceable sole inserts. the soles wore out in a season, i tried first just replacing the inserts, they wouldnt stay on, then i took the boots to a cobbler he re-stitched the boot, and glued on a new complete sole, it lasted a month. alpinestar soles are junk. i switched to gaerne SG 10's ive had them for 2 seasons they look brand new. im not sure if tech 8's fit tech 4's, but the new sole no matter what boot its for wont last long. i wouldnt bother with the tech 8 soles, because the inserts dont stick at all.
gearne SG10's no break in needed, theyre comfortable the first time you put them on. ;)

if you replace the soles they might stay on fine. i just had trouble, and they do wear out fast. i wouldnt bother with the tech 8 soles though. as the inserts wont stick, if you replace them.
