Icon 1000 Elsinore Boots
These boots definitely take a while to break in. Like most other reviewers, I too had to move my shifter position because of the large toebox. So many compliments on the awesome looking boots. The zipper in and out is great.

100% honest review. great boot with faults.
this boot looks and fits great. change the foot bed right off the bat. its a piece of paper. do that then find out where you like your straps and go to town and the ladies will instantly fall in love with you, and your triumph or sportster gains 10hp on the way there too!
now if thats all you wanted to know, don't read on. and these boots will still be perfect....
this is a fashion boot first and a motorcycle boot second. icon must of thought the opposite or something because the fit and finish would really be unacceptable if they weren't the only kind of "reasonably" priced retro moto looking boot.
stitching and welts have major visible flaws. for a boot this price thats not cool at all. id like to blame it on china but i have a pair of Chinese made brand name boots right next to me that i paid less for - that are 4 years old and not a single flaw in the welt or stitching.
now i'm not here to flame these boots, i'm just saying when your boots stitching is bright yellow against brown. it can be straight and maybe when they run out of thread they can try to get the stops anywhere but dead center of the boot. or who ever puts the screws in the heal plate can try to not cross thread them, this is a 250$ boot... should be quality.
with all that said its still a good looking boot. especially when its worn in all those flaws will blend in to the general uglyfication they will naturally gain. but out of the box it would have been a work of art for the money spent

Had these boots for over a year now. Great fit, bit bulky to walk around. Got plenty of compliments on the look. Highly, highly recommend it. Thank you RevZilla :-)

These boots are very comfortable and are worth the money I spent on them.

Stylish boot, awesome after break-in, not for people with robust calves!
I really like these boots. I bought them due to the fact that Dainese Cafe Boots were on back order. I was initially disappointed by the fit, but these broke in really well. I had to readjust my shiftier to accommodate the toe box on these boots, but once broken in, feel is pretty awesome. The in-out zipper is super handy and tough. They are comfortable enough to go all day in them and stylish as all get out. I am now 5 months into these boots and the duarbility has been good. Nothing to write home about, but mine have not fallen apart like others have experienced.
A note to anyone with robust calves of any variety: DO not expect to fit jeans inside these things. If you can, manage it, you will probably look at least as ridiculous as I did. A nice boot cut jean does the rick to go over and i actually like that understated look of hiding the boot a bit. You can expect the fit to be tight, but gradually loosen.

Love these boots
Overall the boots are AWSOME, fit is really good not to narrow, true to size at least on my foot. Styling is just simply badass. Only concern I have at this point is the metal heal plate on the back if the boots, a couple if the screws in them were installed rather poorly. Was kind of disappointed in how that took away from the over all look of them, look like it was done cheaply for a pair of boots that cost $ 250.00, I did expect a little better quality in that regard. Otherwise I do highly recommend them.

NOT for people with muscular or thick calves
I tried these boots on locally so I'd know my size and could purchase them here. I wear an 8.5 boot in women's, normally, so tried on a 9. I chose the men's size for a reason.
The foot fit wonderfully! To be on the safe side, I put the buckles on the last, outermost hole on each of them and then proceeded to zip them up. They wouldn't go with my pants tucked inside. I pulled my pants out and tried again. OW!!! I COULD get them zipped but only with great, sharp pain, and fear of actually catching skin in the zipper! The calf was too tight! I decided I needed a size up, so went to 9.5. Same problem! 10? Same problem! 10.5? Same!
Turns out, when changing sizes, ONLY THE FOOT PART OF THE BOOT CHANGES,, NOT THE CALF. If you have muscular or thick legs, it doesn't matter WHAT size you try on. They won't zip for you.
For the record, I measured my calves when I got home. At the thickest part, my calf measures 15". I Googled and found that to be about average for most women. One woman was a ballet dancer and another was a runner, so definitely both fit people, and they had calves similar to mine.
Gorgeous boot, comfortable in nearly every way, but only meant for thinner (thinner calves, anyway) people. Why doesn't sizing up the boot also size up the calf part?!
