How to keep clean new white boots


Desert-Racer74

Hi there riders, this is my first guide of how to keep clean new white boots. Personally i love white boots, looks great and is a little less heat on your feet, but they are very dirty specialty if you ride in desert of mud trails, clean the white boots are hard and more yet if you what to take off that marks from oil, branch or yellow marks from heat. Well saying that this is a guide to clean up all that marks, using my brand new Alpinestars Tech 7 Patriot.

 

(NOTE: THIS IS A SIMPLE GUIDE BASED ON MY EXPERIENCE, I NOT ASSUME ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS, I WILL TEACH YOU THE ONLY METHOD THAT I KNOW AND THAT WORKS FOR ME)

You will need:

  • 1 sponge
  • 1 micro fiber towel
  • 2 sheet of sand papers, (220 IS THE MAX THAT YOU CAN USE ON THE BOOTS, ANY UP FROM THERE YOU WILL SCREW HIM)
  • 1 brush.


STEP 1:Use 1 liter of water and put some dish soap on it, make sure and enough soap for keep some lubrication.

STEP 2: In other 1 or 2 liters of water use again dish soap for clean up your boots, this step use the sponge for take off all the dirt and maybe some marks that are easy to clean, always keep your boot in your arm poting down the area where your leg comes in, this prevents that the water fall inside of the boot.

STEP 3: Take off all the soap with clean water.

STEP 4: At this point you will see all the hard marks, and depend how deep it is or how hard to sand it is you will use your sand paper, maybe you can sand paper it with 600 or less.

STEP 5: To take off the marks, get the sand paper with the soapy water and with your 2 middle fingers put pressure on the sand paper and begin to moving in one direction, NEVER ON CIRCLES, always keep the sand paper lube with water for avoid any scratch beyond the area that you are cleaning.

STEP 6: Avoid any surface with gloss finish, usually this areas the scratch are rare or the gloss areas on the boots are minimum

STEP 7: After you finish with all the hard marks, i recommend give another clean with the sponge to get a better finish

STEP 8: When you finish with the final wash, take your micro fiber towel and dry the boot in any area possible, after you finish the dry, let the boot dry by himself on the shadow, NEVER ON THE SUN, leave it on the sun damage your colors.

And you are done, PLEASE PEOPLE AND AGAIN, this works for me, and i wanna share with you guys, is not an attempt of trolling or some bullshit, if is work for you, please let me know, hope this can help a lot of people out there, be safe and braaaap!

      I am tired of have wet feet from just hitting puddles.  Over the years I've used mainly Alpinestars and most recently Forma.  Nothing I've ever owned did a good job of keeping my feet dry.
      Shopping I see Sidi and Forma offering adventure boots that are membrane lined to prevent water from getting in.  However the 3 buckle adventure boots are lower end boots in the sub $300 category and the look soft in terms of protection.
      Are you satisfied with the water resistance of your boot?  IF so, what do you have?

      For sale is a pair of Alpinestars Tech 10 motocross boots, size 10.  Never warn, they don't fit me.

      Sidi Crossfire boots, size 10 (44) in good condition.   This model has replaceable and interchangeable soles and the soles that came on the boot are still on there, giving you a gauge of usage.  Sidi makes a number of different compounds for different kinds of riding.  $250 obo plus shipping.

      I have a hole worn in my new Alpinestars Tech 8 boots on the right boot, left inside. The only thing I can figure out is that the brake lever/footpeg is rubbing on it. Anybody else have this problem with this bike or is it just me? Think Alpinestars will stand behind their boot?
