hmmm, I started trials riding with hinged MX boots, don't work
MC boots have scaled soles, to keep your knees and ankles from getting twisted, when you slide a foot on the ground
and MC bots have stiff soles
trials boots have knobby soles like hyter aggressive hiking boots, to keep your feet ON the pegs, even on the short end of the pegs without slipping
trials boots have flexible soles
not sure about the H-Points, but even in the day there were quite a few enduro boots on the market, lighter than MX boots with hiking boot soles
they would work for trials, or nowadays BMW Santiago or the like

on road, for dual sporting and for trials I have A-star No Stop, they fit my feet better than the Gaernes, I would love to have the waterproof membrane the Gaernes have, but ... oh well
off road I stick with MX boots
