Icon Elsinore Boots

The Icon 1000 Elsinore's five-strap, alloy-buckle chassis, stamped metal heel plate, and internal steel shank combine for a serious dose of moto-x homage. The traditional Goodyear welt construction mates the Icon street-specific sole to the magnificent leather upper. A medial entry zipper, allocated from Paratrooper jump boots, is the only luxury the Elsinore will allow itself. A modern relic from an era when men were iron and tanks were steel. The Elsinore, old-school MX reinterpreted for the urban sprawl.

Features:

  • 12" top grain leather upper
  • Goodyear welt construction
  • Icon cast metal buckles
  • Icon stamped metal heel plate
  • Heat pressed leather shifter panel
  • Heat pressed molded leather shin plate
  • Internal ankle protection
  • Axialmetric steel shank
  • YKK Zippers

Icon 1000 Elsinore Boots 4.5 5 150 150
Couldn't be happier with these boots They take a few rides to break in, but once you've worn them a few times, they're awesome. They offer a ton of protection and style. I have a 2014 Triumph Thruxton, and when I first tried these boots on they were really stiff. So stiff that it was almost impossible to shift. Like I said, if you buy these, they will break in, and once they do, they're amazing. I definitely recommend them. November 20, 2014
beware! Just one word of caution with these boots. I tried a pair on at last years motorcycle show, they seem like a great boot. Lots of protection, well constructed and stylish. But I couldn't do them up. I had the buckles set to there biggest size but couldn't get the zipper over my calves. I'm not a huge dude either, my calves measure just over 18". I would have bought these on the spot if I could have done them up, they are a badass boot. November 16, 2014
Still pretty new, but they feel & look great while riding. They're still pretty new., but they were just what I was looking for. Was disappointed to see the YKK zippers are plastic. But they seem sturdy enough. No problems with shifting or comfort on longer rides. I ride a Honda XR 650 L mainly on gravel roads gettin' sideways & a few wheelies. Boots are good & stable when standing on the pegs, Also when you have to throw a leg out there. Fit is pretty exact... so if you want to add extra socks in colder weather, or if you want to wear your riding pants inside the boot, Get the next size up. If you like the way they look...get them. November 10, 2014
This is a great boot. These are awesome boots, very comfortable and go on easy with the side zippers. They are a bit tall in the toe, and it took me a bit to get used to shifting my dual sport with them. October 24, 2014
Cool looking and Good fit I was worried about the fit. I picked the size my danner steel toe boot are (11) and it worked out. Once the leather breaks in these bad boys will be perfect! October 6, 2014
Fit true to size, great protection in a street boot. First off, they fit true to size. Not larger, not smaller, not narrower, right on. That was my #1 need and it was nailed. These boots are extremely comfortable and the level of protection is fantastic. The adjustable straps along the side let you adjust for your calf shape, which is great when your lower legs aren't a straight line. The tread on the bottom grips very well and the shin protection is great for when, say, a golf ball comes flying up off the road and lands right in the middle of your shin. My only gripe is completely cosmetic, the neon green stitching on a black boot looks kinda funny. I'll give it a few thousand miles till the road blackens them up a bit and we'll be just fine. October 1, 2014
Still Haven't Used Them Much stiffer than my last pair of boots. Six months later and I have yet to use them riding. They're still too stiff for me to shift; not enough flexibility in the ankle. I've walked several miles in them, but it doesn't seem to help. September 15, 2014
Awesome looking boot, just not for riding. I loved these boots when I got them I was so excited. They look super tough, and are made really well. They ran a bit small, I wear a 9 and my toe touched the end in this 9. They are heavy, that is for sure. I was so saddened to have to return them. I couldn't ride with them at all. The ankle doesn't bend its super reinforced, and it's sort of "stuck" at an angle that makes shifting my sport bike impossible. I mean I loved them so much I tried adjusting my shifter to accommodate the boots, but just couldn't get it too work where it wouldn't be dangerous. I have to say I thought about keeping them just to wear out and about and I probably would had they been a bit lighter for everyday wear, but they were too heavy to walk around in for any time. You may be able to shift a Harley in them I didn't check as your foot is at a different angle when engaging the shifter. They are much better made then the Harley boots I also ordered and were only about 30 bucks more. So bummed. September 2, 2014

L A: Protection with a major dose of badassery! Jun 16, 2014
michael j: after reading most all reviews and looking at these boots with safety in mind, feel there much more than my harley boots, seem to look bad ass and make a statement, more than my boots do now, although the feel will be much differnt as per reviews, I am looking forward to the change, old school look.

John C: Great looks and appear to be a quality product with good reviews. May 8, 2014
Alton S: Cool retro look May 3, 2014
Christopher M: The style, fit and reviews. One of the most comfortable boots I've ever tried on, the reviews on the looks and durability can't be beat. If I enjoy this pair as much as I expect I will the brown pair will be in my future. Apr 30, 2014
Nigel N: Totally got these because of the looks and fit with what I wanted when I ordered them. In hindsight I probably should have gotten something that breathes (so Icon, give me this with breathable materials stat!) to better deal with the Florida heat. They are definitely sturdy and seem to have held up quite well. Put just over 3k miles on them so far. Solid, sturdy piece for me as opposed to some other reviewers. Apr 29, 2014
Albert G: Great Reviews on the forums for this boot. And they just look awesome! Apr 15, 2014

William L: The look and feel is totally badass. I live in a rather hot area so honestly I haven't worn them yet but trying them on and walking around the house you really feel the heft. I think these will be my fall/winter go to footwear for riding. You can wear them under jeans or go for the fashion statement by wearing them over your pants. Plenty of room for people with larger calves. Mine are skinny so I have them adjusted all the way to the tightest setting. Sep 13, 2013
Ross M: The look very cool. Aug 26, 2013

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
Marc J: No. The short boot, "El Bajo" has black stitching but the Elsinore is only available with yellow stitching (when you order the black boot).

Some black shoe polish may cover or at least darken the yellow stitching.

Loranzy N: Unfortunately the yellow stitching is part of the boot and currently there is not an option for alternate stitching. I was wondering the same thing as well when I bought the boot, but once the boots starts to petina from use and the sun etc it is not as noticeable. Oct 24, 2013

EKFlores: I followed the size that was specified for the boots. I measured my feet and the circumference of my calves and the shoe fit me close to perfect. I mean so perfect its almost tight, but not constricting. Of course they will stretch eventually throughout use. May 13, 2012

A S: The sizing chart linked in the tab above makes no mention of measuring my foot or calf. It only compares US, UK and Japanese sizing. Jul 26, 2014
Jason H: I bought my normal shoe size (10.5) and sizing is perfect. They feel a bit like ski boots at first, but they break in well. I recommend walking around in them a day or two before you ride. Apr 20, 2014

A shopper asked: I understand the Icon 100 Elsinore is an MX-style boot, but it looks so cool and I like the build quality. Would this style also look OK riding a Harley? Jan 20, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Loranzy N: I have a Harley and have owned this boots almost a year. I am happy with the purchase and recieve compliments when people see them (worn under the jeans seldom tucked) The build quality is excellent and I have worn them in all sorts of terrain when I get off the bike;from asphalt, grass, and the woods. Only thing I will say is that walking around for extended period of times, they can be a little uncomfortable (over 6+hrs at a bike week event) but not to the point of blisters or anything just something to be aware of. But that is due to the protection trade off with a stiffer sole! So I think they well do an excellent job from that perspective. I live in Ohio and they keep my feet comfortable during cold weather and in the rain they have kept them dry ( added a silicone protectant). Hope this helps, good luck! Jan 21, 2014
Reply to Loranzy Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Robert P: Heck yeah! I ride my Tiumph 675 stunt bike with them even, and they don't look or feel out of place.
They'd be perfect for a Harley rider. Just note they're very stiff at first and require a solid break in period. When they break in they're extremely comfortable. I wear them all day touring or stunting. The icon field armor knee pads tuck in nicely to them too.

I highsided bad with them doing a left hand drift. Bike flipped and landed right on my foot. They held up and Icon sent me a Purple Heart :P I'm still rockin them. They make replacement buckles and heel plates if you damage them going down

Ryan B: Yes I and my father both own pairs for riding. I have a brown set and he a black. I ride sport and he had his fat Bob and these can fit well with either. They are a great all around boot. And as much as I hate to say it I've even had a bit of a safety test on these. They hold up very well and even still look great after a bit of a low side.i would recommend them to anyone who likes the style of them or is used to wearing a work boot, because they really do have a similar fit and feel.

Jeffrey G: I would hope so; my pair has been on my 2004 Night Train roughly five days a week since they arrived at my doorstep quite a while ago. I did have to adjust my shifter due to the stiffness in the ankle, but beyond that they're fantastic riding boots. They're are also my main ADV riding boots on my KTM 990 Adventure. So cruiser, sport, or adventure, this boot will work everywhere... it has for me. Jan 21, 2014

sean c: Yeah, its a great looking boot. On a harley I would definitely get the black boots, the brown look a bit retro. Brown would look good on a Roland Sands-style bike, if that makes sense. It is a big boot around the calf area, you will need roomy pant legs or wear them over the pants. Jan 20, 2014

Dan S: They look more Mad Max than MX. Very comfortable and look great. Almost a shame not to have your cuffs tucked into them to show the boots off. They look great on my power cruiser and will look just as good with my new R1200RT. Jan 20, 2014

Memdoh N asked: Hi,
I have purchased and used the Icon Super Duty 4 Boots size 12 and it fits very nicely. I am interested in the Icon Elsinore Boots and still not sure whether to get the same size or 1 size bigger due to the different shape and length. I also have a rather large circumference size calves would that be a problem?
Thank you

David T: As for size I'd say true to size but since your calf is larger I'd say get a half size bigger.. I'm 6'4 250 and my calfs are just under normal for my hight and weight .. And the boots give me about a half inch of play around my calfs.

Hope this helps.

Eric H: I wear a 10 with wide feet. The Elsinore boots in 10 fit me great. I have skinny ankles with broader calves too.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
PDXgearhoarder: Water resistant. There's no hydrophobic membrane or taped / sealed seams, so it can't be claimed to be waterproof. Hasn't rained yet here in PDX, but I'm going to bet if worn under leathers, overpants or even decent riding jeans my feet won't get wet. Won't be treating the leather on these for water resistancy. Just personal preference. I'll put my Sidis on if it's raining. These I'll wear to scare people. Oct 3, 2012
Reply to PDXgearhoarder Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
SharkRider55: No they are not, I added mink oil to make them resistant to moisture, rain. Heck even the boots I have bought in the past that stated waterproof, got my feet wet. Unless they are rubber boots, the best I believe any boot can offer is "water resistant", but waterproof is an exaggeration in my opinion. Oct 8, 2012

Aaron B asked: What kind of shin protection does this provide? It seems like it is just thicker than normal leather on the shin, correct? Sep 28, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
David C: Solid.
I'm not sure if there is a composite or metal underneath the hard leather but I can tell you it's very stiff hard leather if nothing else.
I get zero flex which makes me believe there may be something other than just hard thick leather involved but I can't say for certain.
On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being light soft leather and 10 being formed and padded steel shin guards I would put the shin protection of these boots at about a 6 or 7. I wouldn't be afraid of coffee table edges, tree branches, knives or whiffle bats, with these on, but I wouldn't expect them to stop a bullet.
Just a personal opinion with no scientific backing or experimentation to it at all.

Kenneth S: It actually feels like it may be strengthened with plastic or some other stiff material. It feels stiffer than two layers of leather. I think it would give good shin protection. My old boots had no shin protection, so this was a big upgrade in protection for me. Sep 30, 2014

Peter D: Hi Aaron best way to describe the ankle protection is as a small armored cup the sits over your ankle. Of course the best way is to avoid falling off in the first place, saying that I have been down the road in mine and they held up fine.
Keep it rubber side down.

John P asked: Just got my Icon Elsinore boots. This is my first pair of riding boots. I ordered the same size I ware in street shoes/boots, 12. Are they supposed to fit very tight? Or should I return and go up a size? Aug 11, 2014

Peter D: Hi John,

I found mine to be fairly tight on the calves but that could just be me as I have calve Henry the eighth would have been proud of. I found that after a couple of weeks wear they fit perfectly. Try mucking about with the sizing tags to to find the right fit for you. I found taking them out to the loosest setting and over a period of weeks bringing them in as tight as you can bear until they start to conform. This method worked for me and my boots now have about 60k km on them and I couldn't be happier, they have seen me through a West Aus summer and a Tasmanian winter. One thing I will mention is that they aren't the mist water proof boot but even when they are wet the are still warm.

Cheers,
Pete.

Ps, I forgot to mention how well they go kicking quarter panels. Bloody Awesome is how they go

David C: Hi John, I picked up the 12 also and they are a little snug but fit well on me. If you usually wear a wide you might want to go up a size, but I would be afraid they'd be too big on me personally. They are stretchable over time, but you may or may not want to break them in since you can't return them once worn in if they don't stretch to the size you need them to be.

Good luck, hope that helps some.

Robert R: Mine were snug (not very tight) when i first got them. They fit very well a few weeks use (I wore them around the house also to break in faster) There is some break-in time for sure, but I they should not be painfully tight when brand-new. I hope this helps Aug 12, 2014

John S: I wear a size 10 and these seem to be as stated, a size 10. I think a 9 would be to small for a 9.5. The strap and buckle system seem to give you some fudge room. I had them on all day Saturday, and no breakin discomfort.For the price they seem worth it so far. Jul 21, 2014

A shopper asked: How much do these weigh?

How flexible are they after breakin compared to a MX boot?
May 12, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Robert Z: I've had them for almost two years. Flexibility is good. But, this has made the large fit of the boots more problematic. If you have very big feet, it will probably be fine. But if yours are not so large and slender, I would look at other brands. Me, I'm going back to Dainese.

On the positive note, the Elsinores have held up well. I've worn them probably 40% of the days since I bought them in September 2012. They still look good enough to get compliments.

Weight is about average for a boot of this type, maybe a little heavier than my touring Dainese boots.
May 12, 2014

Robert S: Weight is about average, and flexibility and stiffness are about right for what they are for. I would not use them for motocross. I use them with my dual sport and my wife has a pair that she rides her four wheeler with. Simply put, they look badass. They are not super aggressive for hardcore riding, but they are really comfortable for all-day/multi-day dirt road adventures and they keep the water out when I get caught in the rain and mud. They are a bit big around the calf, but I'm not running a marathon in them, so I don't care. I love them and my wife loves them. Jun 20, 2014

David T: Don't know how munch they weigh but there's virtually no break in period, they are very comfortable.. Got caught in the rain twice, like bad rain, and they held up pretty well considering they aren't water proof.. Good buy for the money - you won't be disappointed.. May 12, 2014

A shopper asked: are these boots about as bulky as say work boots? i have read several complaints that these are a bit to bulky for some bikes and interfere with shifting. i ride a small cruiser with forward controls and currently wear a pair of Bates 8" Tactical Sport Composite Toe boots. and want some thing a little more protective. i also want to be able to wear these under my pants and not have to carry around a 2nd pair of walking shoes/boots. as my bike is entirely used for commuting and i work on my feet.
thanks for the help.

Stephanie M: Hello,
My wife purchased these boots for me for my birthday in 2012. I ride a large cruiser and have worn them on several long trips. First off they are fairly light weight. I work in a pair of Danner boots every day and they are far more bulky. The down sides to the ICON 1000 boots is they are a little tall but I like that. I could see where that might be a problem if you have shorter legs. I wear them with relaxed fit or loose fit jeans when I'm riding and the pants cover them fine. I have also worn them with the pant legs tucked into the boots as well. As far as being on your feet in them all day I wouldn't recomend it without some additional insoles. They are not that comfortable to walk in. Lastly, if you purchase a pair I recommend long socks that extend above the top of the boots so they don't rub you raw. I like the long socker socks because they can't be pulled down by the boot. I almost forgot; I have never had a problem shifting in them and my brother has the same boots and rides a sportbike and I have never heard him complain about shifting.

So the bottom line for me is they are well made. Great protection. Look awesome. The best advise I can give is if you buy them you will probably like them but be prepared to have to make small adjustments such as socks, insoles and no boot cut jeans unless you plan to tuck them into the boots. Hope this helped.

David R: Hey there, I think I can give some insight here. I also ride a small cruiser and have definitely noted some difficulty upshifting while wearing my Elsinores. It's not a deal breaker and hasn't caused any serious problems, but the boots are stiff and require a bit more effort to get your toe under the shifter. In an emergency, say if a car is about to plow into you, if you're not used to the boot, I could see that being an issue.

As far as fit and comfort, I don't like to be on my feet all day in these. They're bulky, hot, have zero ventilation, and after a few hours of standing, my feet definitely feel it. The latter may be resolved with different insoles. They do fit alright under regular jeans, but you'll have trouble if the leg is a slim fit.

They look very cool and do offer good protection, but aren't great for use off the bike.

Hope that helps.

Brian O: Had a little problem shifting with forward controls when the boots were new, but after breaking them in they were fine. You can wear them under pants but they need to have wide cuffs. Some regular boot cuts are too snug. Overall I love them for riding, and I think they look cool, buy I wouldn't recommend them for casual walking around, as there is not a lot of cushioning in the insole. Apr 21, 2014

A S asked: Hey, have a question about size. This will be my first pair of real protective riding boots. I bounce between a 12 and a 13 usually. For example - I buy Redwing boots in 12 because the leather opens up a bit. My lady got me a pair of these Elsinores in size 13 and I can just get my foot inside, but when I stand and walk, there is a little play in the ankle and toe area where my foot moves a bit in the boot.

For a riding boot, should these be on the tighter side with no play inside the boot as they will likely open up a bit, or should I stick with the 13s as they may just be very stiff right now and will form to my foot a bit over time?

Normally I'd go down a size, but any smaller and I'm worried about getting my foot into them at all, and they are already snug on my calfs - no room to size down on the legs...

Any pointers appreciated, thanks.

karim s: Hey - Per your question:
Normally I wear 9.5 in regular shoes, so i took a gamble and ordered size 9.5. I have to admit, to my surprise, the pair fitted very well.

When I first tried them on It felt a bit odd : the boots were heavier than what I used to and a bit stiffer but kind to the calf. That being said, I got used to it very quickly as they loosen a hair. I am wearing them using a thin pair of socks. hopefully it won;t change the feel when i'll be wearing a thicker ones.

For max comfort, i think you should allow some play, at least to allow some air flow. Since you are in between two sizes i would suggest that you go with size13s, specially if your wear them with thick socks. Also don't forget that your feet during summertime have a tendency to swell in a bit.

Be prepared to a lack of comfort when you hope on your bike for the first time with the boots on. The sole is very thick. I ride a cruiser and luckily I have a heel-toe shifter. I can't up shift with my toe: not enough space between floorboard and the gear shifter.

Thomas Ryan D: I tend to waiver between a 10.5 and 11, depending on fit or width. I have wide feet; think Hobbit feet. I opted for the 10.5 and they fit nice and have broken in a bit to accommodate my flipper feet. Get the 12s. May 23, 2014

CudaIOMC: Same reason I picked these up! Destroyed the ligaments in my ankle and shin, as long as the swelling isn't too bad these are an excellent choice, great ankle support and the straps allow you to sinch them up to a tight fit.
The zip side allows you to really open them up to you should have no issues getting them on pain free.
If swelling is an issue you may want to go one size bigger.

Mirrory: It may be unrelated but if you have a matte black helmet the brown will mesh really good with it. I haven't seen it in person but it appears you can see the composite weave on the helmet, so it will be a lacquer brown color with a dull hue. Apr 19, 2012
