I like them a\for everything, but now finally found a set of the original 1970s Hi Point MX boots which are perfect for trials thru street riding and light MX which is all I do. I originally bought them to ride my Supermoto around soince the regular MX boots now are soooo frig stiff. Love botht ehGaerne Balance and the Hi points. When i go anywhere someone wants to buy the Hi points though......they have the uber cool chrome shin guard.
