Alpinestars Presents Limited-Edition Liberty Tech 10 Boot
Buchanan, Michigan — Many believe that RedBud’s original name, Red Bud TNT, was chosen as a homage to the explosive, on- and off-track fireworks displayed every Independence Day weekend. However, the classic title actually stands for Track N’ Trail. Named at the track’s conception in 1972, this particular track n’ trail has become a staple of motocross history. Since hosting its first AMA race in 1974, Red Bud is the destination for American motocross culture. Hamburgers, camping and the most famous 120’ in motocross all set the stage for some of the best racing of the outdoor season. And nothing navigates the “best dirt in the world” better than a pair of stars and stripes strewn Tech 10 boots.
Combining the color of champions with the graphics of Old Glory, the "Liberty" blends Alpinestars’ prodigious innovation with a dash of patriotism. Befitting the weekend, the classic white boot is strongly accented with gold and the Stars and Stripes. So whether you are cruising your favorite spots or wide open headed towards LaRocco’s Leap, Alpinestars keeps you protected in style.
The world’s most technologically advanced and protective motocross boot, the Tech 10 offers unrivaled race-winning performance to moto riders who demand nothing less than the best. The Limited Edition ‘Liberty’ Tech 10 fuses all the performance innovations of the iconic Tech 10 with a unique color combination.
The result is a boot that not only knows its history, but isn’t afraid to make some.
