The Stylmartin Continental Boots are a new design for 2016 from the Italian motorcycle gear manufacturer, they’ve been developed to closely resemble the iconic HighPoint riding boots from 1970s motocross that’ll be immediately familiar to anyone who was there – or anyone who’s a fan of vintage off road racing.
The Continental Boots are made from Nappa calfskin leather, with leather lining, a Vibram anti-slip rubber sole, internal shin protectors, adjustable leather straps with metal fasteners, and they’re water repellent.
