In 1963, a leather craftsman by the name of Sante Mazzarolo brought forth a future icon. Based in the small Northern Italy town of Asolo and with the perennial Alpine star flower as it's namesake, Mr. Mazzarolo began producing the first products bearing the Alpinestars moniker. At that time a new sport called motocross was establishing itself and becoming quite popular across Europe. Very much aware of the sport, Sante realised an opportunity to apply his talents and technical acumen to design a new type of footwear that would meet the protective needs and demands of this beautiful yet brutal form of athleticism. The revolutionary boot that Mr. Mazzarolo produced would become an archetype for motocross protection.

Over the years we have built a fantastic reputation, going all the way back to 1995 in Exeter, England, where we opened a High Street shop with the vision of providing the locals and tourists with a place to find the latest skate / surfing collections as well as socialising with fellow boarders in the cafe. Our success and growth means that today, we are part of a much bigger company based in the North East of England. Our location may have changed but our attitude certainly hasn't! We still understand that our customers deserve the very best brands, product choice and service and we are proud to consistently deliver on this! Due to our High Street success, the next logical step was to offer our fantastic products / service nationwide and launch our online store. Urban Surfer was born.
