This is a very rare pair of the original Hi-Point Motocross Boots. Hi-Points by Alpinestars are traditionally associated with the metal shin plate, but the first ones had these "Red, White, and Blue" diamonds. This first pair had seven buckles. They soon went to six straps. This pair was the enduro version with the lug sole.

The world champion's motocross boot used by professional racers.
Upper of soft and thick leather, front part and ankles padded; a dynamic but confortable style. Fastened by 7 Alpinestars patented buckles. Smooth sole and steel cap designed by Alpinestars

Founded in 1963 by Sante Mazzarolo in Asolo, Italy, Alpinestars started out making hiking and ski boots, but quickly focused on making boots primarily for motocross racing.
