: : I found this incredible find on EBAY. A pair of New Old Stock Alpinestar Hi Point Boots. Incredibly, these are completely unworn, new in box, including the original box. They are size 13.5 US and fit my size 15 feet with thin socks. The soles are totally new. I'm even wondering if I should use them as normal boots. It seems like sacrilege to wear them outside.
: They look like the style work on the original Battlestar Galactica....very hot!!
They are close, but the original Battlestar Galactica boots were actually Full Bore boots dyed brown (painted brown?) to match the uniform.
There is a really cool website called classicboots.com that has a very fine history of the hi points, full bores, etc. Here is a link to the full bores at that site: http://www.classicboots.com/moto/details/f-bore07.htm
