Icon 1000 Elsinore Boots
Favorite boots hands down
What can I say that others have not? Great boot with quality leather, ample protection from heat on a cruiser, feels fine to me walking around in daily activities, the break in time is very minimal. Perhaps 2-3 days. You may need to change the height of your gear shift and or rear brake depending on the clearance of your pegs vs your left and right controls. Once fixed, the gear shift fit perfectly for the extra amount of leather added for shifting. Breathability throughout this Summer (currently July 2015) is good considering the humidity. It doesn't get any more toasty than my red wings etc. The fit: Fit is perfect, get the size that you usually wear, the added bonus of being able to adjust the width of your calves is a nice touch with the buckles. (warning: may not be a good boot to wear with straight or boot cut jeans if you're blousing/tucking them in. Too much excess material inside the boot causes discomfort/pressure of the jean pushing up against the boot) Mainly meant for slim/skinnier cut pants and jeans in my opinion. Another added feature is using the buckle/belt as a way to house my boot knife. I carry a small fixed blade for everyday tasks and having one on my boot leaves room in my pockets and belt for other items. The buckles work almost as a 'molle' system for attachments. The look: IF this boot doesn't strike you as 'awesome' or something you'd wear from first glance then it probably isn't for you. It has very 'in your face' styling about it with the buckles going from calf to ankle. Old school moto x styling meets storm trooper. For me it fits perfectly.

Good looking, not so durable
I got these boots because I really like the old school motocross look, but wanted something newer with modern materials. Kind of wish I had spent my money on some $275 vintage alpinestars instead.
The boots fit well (I usually wear a 10 or 10.5 but the 9.5 fit me good and snug) and broke in quickly, but the first time I went to kickstart my 1980 IT425, the toe box crushed in, leaving little room for my toes, and rubbing the tip of my big toe raw during the ride. I later took the boots off and had a fun time pressing it back out from the inside. Now, at the least little bump (I have to be very careful of the footpeg when kick starting) the toe pops back inwards, protruding sharply into my toe box. I've even had it happen while riding through brush. Now I know this won't happen to everyone, but just to see if ICON would rectify the situation and replace my BRAND NEW and jacked up boots I contacted them and they told me there was nothing they could do because they had not heard of this being a problem. I guess there have to be a lot of people with the same problem for them to care. Anyways, some of the stitching on the top of the foot has come out, while much of the stitching is very robust and substantial.
Don't get me wrong, I love these boots. They are protective enough for dirt riding, although I wouldn't buy them if you ride especially hard in the dirt. Not very supportive on the calf for a skinny guy like me, but I'm not a motocross pro. They look great, especially when broken in, and I rode all day in them and was still pretty comfortable. I'm just careful about the toe popping back in.
REVZILLA was great, I believe they pointed me towards the ICON people, and the boots were shipped super quickly and arrived in that special REVZILLA box that lets you know it's Christmas. They also had the best price out there so I'll definitely remain a loyal REVZILLA customer

Love these boots....but
These boots look and feel awesome but I will probably have to return them. All my bikes have mid or slightly rearset controls and i just cant get the toe box under the shifter reliably.
If your controls will work with a boxier boot I would buy these in a heartbeat. They look fantastic and fit true to size.

Just got these boots haven't wore them riding yet. First note I have on the boots is if your calfs are skinny like mine you will definitely need to tuck your pants into your boots or the upper will feel loose and sloppy. Also they are very warm, but feel super comfy on my feet despite the heat that gets trapped in them.

Fit and features are great!
Fit like a glove.These look good and feel very comfortable. Give them a couple days to break in and you are good to go! Thanks Revzilla for great service and information.

Great boot!! Fit is spot on to size. No loose stitching, no frayed ends of stitches. Everything is tied together nicely, boots looks great and appears to be of excellent quality. A bit stiff at first, but once they're broken in (takes a few days) they are really very comfortable, even to just walk about in. Only complaint is that it gets a bit hot in them on warmer days, but the zipper allows for them to be off and back on in an instant, so you can be on you way after you cool down.
Overall this boot is fantastic, great fit and finish. Love the old school moto look. Using them for dual sport riding so I'm gonna buff in some mink oil soon for extra protection against the elements.

These boots are awesome! Very good looking and super comfy. The side zipper is very convenient. Easy on/off. Other reviewers have complained about the zipper. It does seem a bit on the flimsy side. Would be nicer if it was metal and not plastic and if it had a toggle on it. Other than that these boots are perfect. I wear a size 10 tennis shoe and I got the 10.5's. I have wide feet so I wanted one size up. They fit perfect on the sides and are just a tad bit long but with thick socks they are spot on.
