Born and raised in Amherst, Ohio, John Penton was one of the most influential figures in the development of off-road motorcycle racing in America during the ’60s and ‘70s. As a national champion rider, Penton went on to develop a legendary brand of off-road motorcycles that bore his name and defined an industry. His innovations were not reserved exclusively for the manufacture of motorcycles, however. Wanting to improve on the standard work boot that most off-road riders wore in the early days of motocross, He approached an Italian ski boot maker about modifying their boots for motorcycle use. The result was his groundbreaking ‘Hi-Point’ boots that would later be made by his second company, Hi-Point Racing Products. Penton got a young motocross rider named Bob Hannah to wear the new boots and consult on improvements to the design. By the late-1970s, Hi-Points were considered a must-have by many motocross and off-road riders and they quickly became the top-selling motocross boots in the country. Hi-Point continued to expand to include all forms of off-road riding apparel which included everything from gloves and jerseys to pants and casual wear. This design is based on the 1982 logo redesign which gave the company a more contemporary look that actually still holds up today.

Details


Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it comfortable and flattering for both men and women.

Sizing


Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
