Founded in 1963 by Sante Mazzarolo, Alpinestars has come a long way. Growing side by side with a relatively new sport called Motorcross at the time, Sante applied his talents as a technical expert to create a new type of footwear that would be ideal for this sport. Seeing an opportunity with this sport across Europe, Alpinestars successfully changed the face of motorcycle racing and then later riding.
With great Alpinestars reviews and strong goodwill, the company caught the attention of Roger Decoster early on. The former Belgian world champion eventually went on to become one of Alpinestars’ first brand ambassadors and sponsored athletes.
Fifty years later, Alpinestars has helped athletes in numerous world championships by creating high performance and protective footwear.
