Did you go a size up in your Astars Tech 10s?

Latest gen Tech 10's are slightly snugger and slimmer overall. They do break in/ stretch a bit but dont expect much, nothing like the last generation. I wear size 11.5 street shoe/Vans etc and I wear 11's in Tech 10 and they are perfect for me.

I guess the only way for me to know is try them on but i wear a size 6 in tech 8's with the booty on. I wear the same size in gaerne I've always avoided tech 10's because 7 is the smallest they list in size. Street shoes i wear 6.5.

Time to replace my Gaernes, and I’m going with Alpinestars Tech 10s.

I wear size 11 street shoe, and a size 11 Tech 10 feels snug. The size 12 feels comfortable and borders on roomy.

Does the Tech 10 bootie or boot pack out at all after it breaks in some? I’d go with an 11, but my toes are at the end of the toe box and worry hitting a rut or putting my foot down hard in a corner would result in black toenails.

Also, the length of my Gaernes is quite a bit shorter than the length of the Alpinestars so I also worry about where my foot would be on the pegs and accidentally hitting the shifter or brake due to the extra length.

I have a brand new pair of white and red size 11s if you are interested!

I cant speak for the latest generation 10, but the older ones I have are pretty roomy to me. Nike sneaker, work boot ( Chippewa Super Loggers) are size 12, Tech 10 is size 11, rather snug but my safety equipment id prefer snug, not quite to cutting circulation but pretty snug.
