Icon 1000 Elsinore Boots
Gest boots I ever had!
I've been eyeing these boots for months, so I finally decided to spend the $250 on them . . . It is worth every penny!
The moment you get them out of the box you notice the quality of the materials and craftsmanship. They look even better than the pictures!
I ride a V-Twin but never thought that the typical cruiser boots offer any protection at all. Since these boots have lots of protection but yet with a look that I think goes with about any bike. I have the brown distressed oiled color and they look just fantastic!
As they say on the video, they are a bit on the stiff side, but surprisingly, it does not affect your comfort walking around, and you get the best comfort while riding.
They break in quite quickly . . . I put them on the day I got them, and kept them on for the day . . . in a few hours it already felt like it was "mine".
They are very true to size, if you look into the conversion charts and measure your feet. give an extra 1/4" if you plan on using thick socks and you are all set!
Icon really shows their care for the product and for the customer in every aspect. You will find an extra buckle packed with your boots too.
The only thing is that they are a bit bulky at the toe area and shifting may get a bit cumbersome for some bikes . . . but these boots are so good that I am willing to make a slight mod on my shifter if I don't get used to the position.
In short, best boots I ever had!
As for Revzilla . . . Well, it was my first time buying from them, and I don't think I will buy from anyone else, if I can! Amazing customer service before, during and after purchase. Shipping is SUPERFAST!
Bought a pair of Icon Sacred for my wife and had to return it for size - it took me 3 minutes on the phone! You guys ROCK!

Beter than I imagined!
This is a nice heavy leather boot with a style that sets it apart from all others. I like motocross style and upper protection on the street. I feel this icon boot does that. With easy access side zips this makes gearing up or down quick and easy. I realy like mine!

This produc is great for the right bike
I bought this boots mainly because of the safety features and the style. It looks great when I'm riding my Bolt Star, but is bulkier than I spected. I will have to replace my foot peg because it is hard to shift gears with this boot. I wear a 8.5 and this boot fits perfect. It is very confortable and it weights a little bit more than my military boots, which help to give me more stability when I make stops and put my foot down on the road. It has a very good grip when you place your foot on the foot peg or the road. It does take some time to get it fit to your foot. At first, it is going to be very rigid and as you wear it often, it will start to shape to you movement.
The quality of the material seem excellent and the protection that it provides can be appreciated from the first time you pulled them out of the box. So far, I love this boots, but then again I will have to change the foot pegs on my Bolt Star in order to give me more room for the shifting.

Awesome look-tight calves
The unboxing came with excitement and disappointment. The look is awesome but I could not get my 10.5 foot into the 10.5 boot at first. I had to undo the zipper as well as the buckles. Once on, the right boot zipper split. My wife was able to get them off me and unzip and rezip it until the zipper caught again. I had to put the buckles on the last notch and it is still a challenge to get in and out of them. The foot bottom fits perfect and is a great feel. The ankle protection is thin and only on the inside of the leg but enough to be a pain when zipping up the boot (there does not seem to be protection on the outside of the ankle only a buckle over the ankle area for protection). Once over the ankle protection the zipper goes up fine until the top of the boot on the calf of the leg. With bar skin it is a very tight fit. Since the boot foot bottom fits my foot, buying up a size would not solve my problem. For men with big calves or muscular calves like mine, just know it will be a hard fit. This boot, in my opinion, is for men with no calf muscles at all or for men with high calf muscles. I have average leg size, not fat or flabby legs, just muscular and the fit is tight. I am keep the boots because I really love the look and feel but hoping they will break in and give more around the legs. The stitching is strong and the boot seems to be made well.

Not perfect, quite beautiful, tough enough for what I do.
For my journey to talk with the mountain, these will do nicely.

A very solid boot
I've had these boots for about three years now. I've taken them through street and enduro riding, and they're a very solid, stable boot. I've had a couple of crashes (on and off road) and they are extremely protective. Only issue I have is the two bottom studs holding the boot strap inside the metal buckles have broken off through normal heavy usage. Still, it doesn't seem to be an issue as the boot holds fast to my foot. The jump zipper is extremely durable and the boot itself is tough as nails.
And yes, scuff em up a bit and they're a SICK looking boot. I would definitely recommend as a solid on/off road riding boot.

Excellent boot, great style, good quality
As others have said this boot does take a little while to break in. It was fairly easy for me and I was happy with the fit right away and it only got better.
So far I have worn the boot as a daily commuter and on longer trips including camping and hiking. While I wouldn't recommend intending to use these as hiking boots they do just fine for a bit of a walk off the bike on terrain rougher than the sidewalk up to the front door at Starbucks.
I really like the retro style and great build quality. The zippers make them very functional for every day use.

I just received my boots and they are "sick". I cannot believe the value in these. They are smoking hot. I am so pleased. True to size. I ordered 44, my size in all shoes I purchase. The overall fit is perfect and extremely comfortable. I am so impressed.
Will buy ICON again in boots.
