The following is from Alpinestars:
Indianapolis is one of those American cities that has a long and loving relationship with racing. In fact, some would say Indianapolis was the birthplace of American Motorsports. Sanctioned Motorcycle Racing in the city dates back to 1909, and if you fast-forward about 83 years, AMA Supercross makes its debut in the American Motorsports hub.
Similarly to Indianapolis, Alpinestars has a rich heritage in motorsports and more specifically in motocross. The company was founded in 1963 and shortly thereafter went on to make the world’s first motocross specific boot. Just 9 years later, the company entered their revolutionary motocross boot in a prestigious competition held by the Fashion Academy in Turin, Italy. The boot won the monumental award that year, and went on for a repeat win from the Academy again in 1973. Understandably proud of this achievement, the Oscar by Alpinestars logo was born. Since then, innumerable champions have proudly sported the Oscar logo emblazed across their chest.
Since the early 90’s, countless podiums and bar-banging battles have transpired in Indy. With Supercross headed back to Indianapolis, Alpinestars has decided to dedicate a Limited Edition ‘Indianapolis’ boot that emblazes the iconic Oscar logo to the city for its long and rich dedication to motorsports.
