As a motorcycle rider, I was born with the need for speed. So there is something special about zooming down the street on my Kawasaki Ninja–lane splitting through traffic. (Don’t worry, it’s legal in my state.) Feeling the wind as I ride is freeing, even through my gear and Alpinestars Supertech R Boots.
When riding a motorcycle, it’s essential to wear protective gear unless you want to risk losing all your skin and looking like a zombie from the Walking Dead. The gear keeps you safe, and the Supertech boots are designed to be comfortable in the saddle while protecting your ankles in the event of a crash.
With such a protective boot, you would want to maintain them with the world’s best shoe cleaner. Shoe MGK has cleaned motorcycle boots since 1992 and knows how to treat the leather and make the Alpinestars shine.
So let’s get into how to clean Alpinestars Supertech R Boots with the Shoe MGK Leather Care Kit.
How to Clean Alpinestars Supertech R Boots with Shoe MGK Cleaner and Conditioner
Riding a sports bike makes me feel like a racer. It forces me into an athletic position, with the balls of my feet nested on the pegs. Though, after a long day of riding, I notice my boots get dirty even when I don’t go offroad. I’m assuming from dust and debris that gets pulled up while riding. Once the boots get dirty, it breaks the illusion of being that star-studded racer I always dreamed I’d be. That is why utilizing the Shoe MGK Cleaner and Conditioner is crucial. The shoe cleaner soaks into the leather, attacking and breaking down dirt and debris on the molecular level. This process gives your shoes a deep clean that has them looking fresh and feeling smooth.
- Prep the Alpinestars boots by wiping off excess dirt and debris from the shoes with a dry microfiber towel.
- Wet the bristle brush and drizzle the product over the brush. Apply the solution to the shoe in small circular motions, covering the shoe.
- Once covered, wipe clean with a dry towel. Repeat these steps until the shoe is clean!
How to Treat the Leather of Alpinestars Supertech R Boots with Shoe MGK Leather Cream
I love when my bike is clean. The way the sun shines off the fairings as I vroom down the street is exhilarating. Though, when my boots are dirty, it takes away from the bike’s aesthetic. I need the leather to outshine the metal. When it comes to protecting, restoring, and shining the leather, the Shoe MGK Leather cream has no competition. The cream is an all-in-one leather care product that leaves a lasting shine with no buffing. In addition, the Leather Cream moisturizes the uppers to prevent drying, cracking, and scuffing. Meaning you extend the life of your boat shoes.
- Apply the leather cream with a clean towel or sponge.
- Massage the cream into the leather. The solution dries fast and will beautifully hydrate your leather!
- Finally, remove the laces from the solution and wring out cleaner and dirt. Let dry before re-lacing your shoes.
I never ride my motorcycle without protective gear. Dress for the slide, not the ride, they say. And it’s true. With the Shoe MGK Leather Care Kit, I have all the tools to ensure my boots are protected too. Remember to respect your shoes!
