One pair will be presented to Nico at the United States Grand Prix on November 16 – 18, and a second pair to the winning designer, which will be signed by the Sahara Force India star. For races Nico wears a customized version of Alpinestars’ Tech 1-T model.
Constructed from full grain leather with an integrated heat-resistant Nomex® lining and Alpinestars exclusive rubber compound sole, the Tech 1-T is extremely light, weighing in at approximately 300 grams, and engineered for precision fit. Alpinestars constantly conducts research and development with Nico to evolve and improve the shoe’s shaping and performance. This ensures he has the most advanced shoe technology on his feet at all times and can achieve better feel and control of his Sahara Force India VJM05 car.
The two pairs of racing shoes will be truly unique and the winner will be the only person along with Nico to own a pair!… More Information
