If you have heard of big names in the motorcycle and auto racing industry like Kurt Busch, Juan Pablo Montoya, Fernando Alonso, Ricky Johnson, Kevin Schwartz, then you probably know that Alpinestars played an integral role in the success of these champions. This company has a deep history in road racing that started back in the early 1960's and continues its tradition today. It is now a top designer and researcher for racing's top athletes to provide top quality products that can handle the most extreme conditions for racing athletes and motorcycle riders. In 1963, a leather craftsman who lived in a small town in Northern Italy named Sante Mazzarolo began producing hiking, ski boots, and other products. He decided to use the Alpinestars moniker, which was named after the Alpine Star flower. During this time, motocross was just beginning to establish itself as a sport as popularity continued to spread through Europe. Sante was able to realize an opportunity to apply his skills to designing footwear that would meet the needs of motocross riders. As a result, a future icon was created in the form of a revolutionary boot that set itself as the example for motocross protection design. Alpinestars continued to evolve and it eventually branched out into nearly all motorsports segments. The company entered the motorcycle market in the late 1970s, implementing new levels of protection and toe sliders that helped catapult the attention of Alpinestars boots and other products by top riders. Brand popularity also increased when 3-time MotoGP champion Kenny Roberts featured Alpinestars boots at races held around the world.The company began to get involved auto racing in 1990 and its brand is well respected by top drivers in F1, WRC, Sportscar, and CART. Developing top quality products for the best racers continues to be a priority for Alpinestars. The company's products appeal to racers with its classic Italian aesthetic and timeless rebel-style from the early 1960s, continues that tradition today.
