Icon Elsinore Women's Boots

The Icon 1000 Elsinore Women's Boots are straight out of On Any Sunday. A blast from the MX tracks of decades past, theclassic 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:

  • Women specific fit
  • 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

Sizing Note: The 8.5 Women's Elsinore Boot measures 15"  in diameter at calf level (11" from the sole) with the buckles on their widest settings.

Love them and HATE them
These boots look cool and of course, finally! Something that is actually performance and has some style to it? I will try it ... even if our only option is BLACK (hey, if you don't like the yellow stitching, simply use a permanent black marker over it =)

PROS:
- Adjustable side straps - you can tighten these up to fit under/over pants and according to your ankle/shin.

- Leather

- Toe is reinforced in such a way that it feels "heavy duty"

- Look cool

- Ankle and shin protection lacking from some boots

- Good width at toes

CONS:
- Definitely not boots for the track! (LOL)

- Heavy - you're literally carrying weights on your feet which make it difficult to walk

- Super stiff - these are like wearing ski boots at first ... very little give and difficult to break in. I've had them now about 3 weeks and they are finally starting to bend *just a little bit* ... and I wear them for 10 hour days about 4 days out of the week.

- Tread is not good for riding on a sport bike - The tread is super thick and that's good or bad depending on what you're looking for ... but I ride on my toes and the grip combined with the weight of the boot (and break-in time) makes it difficult to move my foot back and forth to shift

- Ankle/heel width is too wide ... I have a wide foot at the toe, so the toe of the boot feels better than the heel ... makes me wonder if these are actually guy boots that they are pressing out at "women's" b/c my heel is moving up and down due to the lack of boot flexibility ... I'm gonna have to buy heel inserts to prevent movement (not good !) ... Guys have a broader ankle/heel than women ... women's boots typically taper to the more narrow ankle/heel and that's why we need WOMEN's boots

... I purchased a size 10 (wear a 9 shoe) so I could be sure to get the width I needed. I think my foot would be screaming for width if I had a size 9 ... but now b/c I have a 10, there's too much room in the ankle/heel

- No arch support - wearing these walking a couple blocks or all day while at work will make your knees and hips hurt due to lack of flexibility and no support in the foot ... makes ya feel like you're flat footed ! (again, think "ski boot" with no arch support) ... I've been having knee and hip problems when I get out of these boots and have to re-balance the body through stretching and other means

COMPARED TO OTHER BOOTS:
- ICON boots typically are not performance boots for me (fit is not great for performance b/c they don't fit well in the width of the toe/ provide arch support/ don't fit well in the ankle&heel) ... my first pair were Icon which I traded in for used Oxtar (now TCX brand)

- TCX boots are too tight for me in the toe

- Dainese boots fit me the best (great foot support and are flexible) ... they are performance boots for the same price as these boots.

- Haven't been able to get to other brands in a store yet (e.g. Spidi)

MY OVERALL PERSPECTIVE:
I don't think the average rider/passenger cares about the details as do I b/c they don't need what I need from a boot.

Do your best to try before you buy ... I knew I was gambling when I purchased these boots b/c I figured I had a 50/50 chance of them actually working out. They were not in a store around me (right now, it may be different). I fell for the look ... cuz, gawd, we women have so few options when it comes to cool looking AND comfortable performance gear.

Depending on WHY you are buying, will depend on if these boots are a good choice for you ...

- These boots make my foot look 3 times it's natural size ... if you like the "goth"/"apocalyptic" look - these are good for you. My typical gear is custom kevlar pants over leggings, so the clothes I'm wearing with these boots is not a fashion issue for me ... either way (with the pants or leggings) the boots look good.

- If you are a passenger rider and you won't be walking around a lot in these boots, they should be fine.

- If you are a gal who rides cruisers, they should be fine b/c you're not riding on your toes.

- These are quickly becoming my "option" pair after I get them broken in and I'm going to buy a pair of Dainese and save my feet/knees/hips

Don't Rule These Out for Sport Bikes Just Yet
They look even better in person than online, slightly intimidating even. Their construction and heft seem heavy duty and unlike the Forma Harmony boot - which had no weight and wouldn't pass the twist test - these do not buckle in any direction and probably won't for many years.

FIT:
For me, these fit perfect right out of the box from top to bottom, almost as if custom molded after my foot shape, further evidence they were made for a woman. The custom feeling was enhanced by the ingenious straps which can take you from loose to tight at whatever point on an ankle or calf needed. 2nd pin fit better than the first and as they break in, holes can always be added. Decided to ride with jeans tucked in though cuffing them up looked acceptable as did the They are stiff, but not rigid or restricting. The toes is so solid and the boots so armored that if my foot were run over it would be injury free.

Walking around there was occasional toe bump up against the front on both but they flexed easily enough to where I could see myself wearing them at my destination, even working. Wish they were a smidge longer in the toe though b/c to go up a bit would mean when they break in they would be too large elsewhere.

ON BIKE:
I love them. I really do. Having worn about a dozen manufacturers boots while motorbiking the past 40 years, the past 10 on sport bikes, it was quickly apparent these were designed to excel at that, while also looking hot. Can't tell you the numbers of looks, honks, and shouts I got from guys and gals.

Last motorbike specific boots I rode in were the waterprrof TXC/Oxtar Sunray, & before that, I had an IXS girly boot which sported only the toe shifter pad to qualify as a biker boot. My go to have been Frye Engineers, CAT Alaska and Carly boots for going out, errands, or commuting. These have the heft of the Alaska's, but the flexibility of the Carly, and protection of the taller Frye and Sunray. And like the TCX boot line, Icon made these to perform while riding, which they do outstandingly.

RIDING:
First thing I noticed was how tough it was to fit between the sliders and pegs/shifter. Finding Neutral to start/warm up took longer than ever before, but toe offs, stops, and bike maneuvering in tight spots or parking seemed easier somehow, even though this boot is the same 1" sole height as my CATs, attributable perhaps to the the stiff height of the shaft.

Accelerating I experienced a lot of missed or skipped upshifts, but had no issues downshifting. After years and years of riding, you get the feel of a bike, and it becomes more instinct than finesse. As the boot loosened, and I realized how I had to point my toe to achieve clean shifts, the number of missed gears decreased. The less thought I placed on how they fit on the bike, the more I could anticipate post break-in comfort and a lifetime of protection.

PROS (and these are biggies):
Most intriguing to me was how much more control I felt this boot provided. It's as if b/c the boot is so stiff, it allowed me to manipulate turns and aversive moves with much more control and therefor confidence. B/c my ability was ratcheted up, I didn't want to stop riding, but longer meant more enjoyable than the last time out.

Although they are rather warm, my Daytona 675 exhaust is routed under the seat but these prevented the scalding heat to reach my legs. The sticky sole kept me planted on whichever pegs I intended to use once I got the feel of the thick toe.

CAVEATS:
The tops of the both boots would catch on the arm of my passenger peg, which is an easy remedy since they're removable, but pretty alarming the first few times my leg didn't get free to tap the brake or shift, forcing me to grab a handful of clutch.

When standing on the left boot toe while pumping gas, noticed it left a dimple on the interior even after the outer dent disappeared?

My foot slipped down and off the drive side (left) foot peg because of the extreme angle of the toe to get under my frame slider to shift. There is ample traction, it was just how my weight had shifted while pointing my foot down to engage the gear caused the boot to let go.

Revzilla quickly honored the product warranty given my pair had seams on both boots which were sewn onto the out sole rather than under it (see images). In a crash I'd be afraid they would fail at the seams. Unless my shoe guy (I have a shoe guy) could fix that and push the length a tiny bit, not sure I should opt for these again. Unless I pick up the Ducati Scrambler!

Am considering the SIDI Apex Lei for summer but would love Icon to reduce toe height -- which is 3" from outsole to top, making the total height to fit peg space 4". Then women could enjoy some style while riding fully protected. Still have not ruled these out for fall either.

BAD @$$ BOOT!!
Icon is killing it with their new boot designs! Great boot, super strong–I could literally have a car run over my foot and I wouldn't feel it–these boots are tough! They fit like motocross boots, very stiff, so great for scooters and cruiser type bikes. Definitely wouldn't recommend these on a sports bike, the toe is too big to wedge into the shifter and peg, plus they hardly bend. So, walking for a long time in these are not ideal. They do heat up, so during summer months, these might be a drag to wear. But they're so bad @$$, you'll get comments on how awesome they look.

These boots are serious business
Ladies, these are some killer boots. I was a little hesitant to buy them after reading some of the reviews about how heavy and big these boots are. The style finally won me over and I picked up a pair in person at Revzilla in Philly.

Yup, these are heavy boots, but if you are used to wearing boots then it won't be a huge issue. I wore them 24/7 to break them in and now I wear them all the time, riding or not. I am a very curvy girl and didn't have any issue with the calves being too small. For the break in period I put the buckles on the loosest setting and I've been tightening them as they break in. They are leather so they do wear in nicely. When you buy them, make sure they are good and snug, almost uncomfortably so. Mine were and now the foot has plenty of room if I wanted to wear boot socks in colder weather.

Protection wise these suckers can take a beating and keep you in good shape. I may or may not have tested this theory by dropping my bike on myself in our gravel driveway...more than once. My leg was bruised, but my boots kept me looking good from the calf down. I have no doubt that if I were to go down at speed they'd keep me in good shape.

As far as shifting goes, well, I have a tiny Honda CB350 and I can shift just fine. It took a few adjustments to make everything fit, but fit it does. Yes, the toe box is pretty big, but I use the side of my toe anyway so I don't need to get my whole toe under there.

A note on quality: I saw a few reviewers had quality issues. When I ordered my boots they popped a seam on the top of the foot within two days. Revzilla replaced them for me and I haven't had one complaint or issue with the replacement pair, so I can only guess that as with most things, sometimes you just get a bad apple.

All in all these are some sexy motorcycle boots. I love mine to pieces and I plan on picking up a brown pair of the mens...unless ICON would like to start offering the women's in brown as well.

LOVE my boots
I bought them for protection and looks and got my moneys worth. I LOVE the look and comfort. Have worn them with jeans tucked in and gotten great comments and worn under riding pants and they fit well. I am a 9.5 and ordered this size. They fit beautifully. Second ride with them we rode to waterfall area that required a hike down and back. (I did not foresee this!!) I wore these boots and although they were a little heavy toward the end, my feet felt great. Unbelievable. GET THEM. Easy on easy off and you can see the protection level when you get them.

So far, so good...
After picking these up and logging a few miles on them, I wanted to leave some input that differs from what exists out there.

I have athletic build with neither anemic nor bulging calves, and these fit fine. If you can't fit into traditional tall boots without needing the wide-calf version (think Frye's or similar), then you'll likely fit into these without a problem. They aren't very tall - low to mid-calf depending on height - and there is definitely some wiggle-room on the fit. I was also expecting a behemoth of a boot based on reviews stating their significant weight, but I don't find them to be particularly cumbersome compared to a regular pair of engineer boots. Women manage to shove their feet into tons of uncomfortable shoes - and as far as these boots go, they're definitely on the mild end of the spectrum. They're substantial but not weighty, protective but not restricting, and a little boot oil makes the break-in fly by and takes some of the obscene brightness out of the yellow stitching. If you ride in boots or protective footwear already, these will probably seem like heaven; if this is your first pair of moto footwear, they may seem a bit unwieldy.

The biggest caveat with these boots is for short women, and something I wish I had known: IF you are short and toe any of your bikes, these will lack the flex to do so. You will not be getting the ball of your foot down and flexing the mid-boot, nor will you be able to point your toes down and catch the ground. You WILL end up doing the saddle-slide or eyeballing the highest point of the road or something similar. Even after a significant break-in period, these simply don't have the flex if you have a taller bike and shorter inseam.

Work of Art
I have closet full of boots. No shoes -- just boots and maybe 2 pairs of sandals. Frye boots and Ugg boots. I like to set these Icons on display in my living room -- that's how beautiful they are. I had my foot crushed under a motorcycle engine before I ordered these -- that would not have happened had I been wearing these! Super-protective. Comfortable as they can be. I wear size 8 sandals -- can fit 8.5 boots -- but normally get size 9 so my toes aren't squished or for adding insole or thick socks. These I first tried in my "real" size 8.5 -- had to return for the 9 as my toe was hitting the front of boot. 9 perfect. My calf measures 13.5" largest point -- buckles are all on medium setting and are fine for tucking pants in. They are fairly massive for wearing pants over -- but my textile pants went right over. Have not been able to move my shifter enough (yet) on my scrambler to use them on that bike --but they are fine on my enduro -- the toe box is tall. Wanted brown --no dice -- black is only option in my size. I don't mind the yellow stitching -- it won't be long before that gets dirty. Oh, for sizing -- my Frye veronica boots - 8.5 fit best -- 9's are loose without both inserts and thick socks. I looked at every boot on Revzilla -- even men's -- it came down to Icon Elsinore Love these boots.

Solid, stylish boots
Having just received the boots not long ago, I can give only my initial impressions.

Comfort: I found them comfortable right out of the box. I did wear them around the house for a day to break them in - just in case they needed it. There is some extra room in the heel area and little arch support, so I'll probably purchase some inserts for them. I also think I may need to tighten the straps to the smallest settings up the leg part.

Protection: They seem to offer very good protection but of course, without testing that through a fall, I can't really say. I hope I don't find out. They are solid and firm in all the right places to provide good protection for the foot and ankle.

Style: These boots look great. I currently wear some over pants and these get hung up on the straps, which looks a little goofy when walking around. I'd like to find some armored jeans to tuck into them. I think that would look better.

Function: I ride an SV650S and was concerned from what I'd read that these boots wouldn't work with the shifter set up on the sport bike. At first, I couldn't get my foot under the shifter, but we adjusted it up and now I have no problem getting under the shifter. The issue now is that I can't feel the shifter due to the size of the toe box and firmness of the boot. So I have to go by feeling the click of the gear engaging to know I've shifted. I also have to be sure to release the shifter after each up shift. If I don't release it (by lowering my foot off the shifter) the next up shift won't take. It's a little tricky because of the mentioned size of the toe box and lack of any feel for the shifter itself. I'm sure this is just a learning curve for the muscle memory and I'll soon be able to shift all the gears smoothly.

They Rock with Hello Kitty socks
I bought these for my wife. I have been concerned with her lack of protective foot gear. We looked through the womens boot selection on Revzilla and these are her pick! She likes her new boots and feels more protected riding two up. She also likes the easy on/off zips. I like her to like riding so we are both very happy! Quality fit and style are all way above what we expected for the price!

Mad Max, eat your heart out!
These boots are awesome to look at and fit my feet perfectly (size 8). I ride a Ducati Monster 696, and did have to adjust the shifter to account for the thicker toe box, as I usually ride in Puma racing boots. There is a little bit of adjustment, getting used to a stiffer boot, but I feel extremely protected. I'm about to take a long road trip, so I will edit this if I have more to add after that.

I picked these boots because they are real leather, have metal buckles (so no plastic that can break!), and have tons of protection on every side. Plus they look awesome.
Brooke T on Jan 1, 2016
I chose these boots because 1. They looked awesome and they also offer all the protection I could want on my bike. Yes, the toe is a bit large which caused shifting to be a bit more difficult but that was fixed by just adjusting my shift lever up a knotch. They are not for anyone with larger calves though.

The look, the look, the look, the look!!!!!!!!! Awesome design as expected from Icon!!! BUT, had to return....just a little too stiff and heavy....couldn't even feel if I was on the footpeg or not! Am I under the shifter?!? Considered them a bit dangerous, since I do rely on "feel".

Lots of protection for women riders - not passengers. Great for light off-roading/dirt roading. Will not work for a sport bike because the boot is too thick. Perfect for dirt bikes/enduros/adventures. Roomy in the heel.

A shopper on Dec 23, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes they are true to size - 8 1/2. They are a bit on the narrow side, as I am told the Icons are. I have wide feet and I do feel the squeeze across my foot on the bone just below my pinky toe (widest part across). But they are leather so I figure they'll break in soon enough. I find I don't notice it much until the end of a decent riding day when I'm glad to get them off. The awesome part is that they fit in the calves (!!) because they are adjustable. I find 1 of the 5 buckles is a bit loose when I get the others fitting just right. Awesome boots.
Hi, I'm looking for boots that would give me an extra half to one inch since I'm currently tippy-toeing on my CBR600RR, do you feel as if this boot gives you a little elevation just by the virtue of its construction? I'm keeping an open mind when it comes to adding a little height, so would appreciate your feedback, thank you.

BEST ANSWER: These boots have a nice thick sole on them. I am 5'11" and my husband is 6'2". When I wear these boots, I look him right in the eye. Kind of makes me feel just a little tougher. Of course, these boots just look tough to begin with. ;)

I think you might still be on your toes a bit, but I don't know what you are riding in now. I can tell you that these boots are good an stiff, which is what I wanted. I have no fear of hurting a shin or ankle if I go down. And I like the fact that they have a good heel on them to make me just a little taller.

One thing I found is that the stitching is really yellow, which I didn't like a whole lot, but my husband used some black Kiwi polish and scuffed them up a little, now they look perfect. I would totally buy these again...
I've never purchased boots like these. I realized quick that I was in over my head when I threw my leg over my Raider right out of the box. So how do you break them in? Education please!

BEST ANSWER: To soften them, use a bit of Neats Foot Oil, gently & lightly rubbing it in. I found that rubbing it on the back of the heel and the two sides of the foot where the most beneficial .
Simply wearing them, especially on the bike, will break them in faster than you realize. At first they seem cumbersome but after a while you will grow to appreciate them like no other. Walking, bending, are good also.
Hope this helps! :)
These are my most prized piece of equipment.
Does anyone know how tall these are from floor to top of calf? The Alpine star boot I wear are about 9.5 inches tall, which hits me perfectly about mid calf. I don't really want to go any taller. (I have Hobbit legs but larger calves!)
The Forma Adventure boots were 15 inches tall!!! Those would go up practically to my knees!

I'm looking for some added height to my heel as I'm tippy toes on my F700 GS. And the reviewer said these add a good amount! I just can't have them be super high in the calves!

BEST ANSWER: From floor to top of boot is 11.5 inches. These are size 9 women's, my wife is 5'7" and they hit just below mid calf on her. She to has very larger calves, at first they were a bit tight on her but now she doesn't wear anything else. She loves these boots I'm sure you would to. They are nice on and off the motorcyle. Hope this helps!
I'm trying to find the most protective touring/commuting suitable boot for women at a reasonable price. Does this boot have reinforced toe caps? What kind (material/technology) of ankle protection specifically does it offer? Would this boot be waterproof?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The sidewall and tip of the toe is very stiff, but the top of it is fairly soft. I'm not sure what its reinforced with, probably plastic or hardened leather. There is a 3/4 steel shank in the sole of it, from the heel to the ball of the foot. The ankles are thick leather, and the outside of the ankle has an additional bit of leather/plastic reinforcement.

As far as waterproof goes, I don't know if they're water"proof", but I filled my bathtub up with about 3 inches of water, put my boots on, and hopped in. They didn't soak through at all, but if water goes in over the cuff then there's nothing you can do about that. Only had my feet in for about 30 seconds.
When you say true to size, is that boot size or tennis shoe size?
A C on Apr 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm not completely sure how these compare to boot size... I wear a women's size 5 so I typically have trouble finding things that fit me. My Elsinore boots fit great on the foot and still have plenty of room in the toebox, which is where I feel the pinch when things are too small. In that regard, they may run a bit larger than tennis shoes of the same size, but they did not feel too large (like a half size larger or more).
I hope this is helpful! These are awesome boots, and I never want another pair!
Anyone know whether there is a steel toe? Only one reviewer mentioned it in all the research i have done. I think that is an important feature to list if so. Some feel strongly for others against steel toes in the event of a crash.

(it was a motorcycle usa site and i just Googled Icon Elsinore + sport bike to get it)
Lena B on Jun 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Lena,

To answer your question, no there is not a steel toe in this boot. However, there is a pretty strong toe guard. Everything about this boot is great and I feel it has good protection. BTW, I know a woman who is a daily rider who swears by her steel toe. It's a personal preference. Hope this helps.
I read a review from 2013 that stated these had a steel toe. Can anyone confirm this? i don't want my toes severed of in a toe first crash.
A shopper on Jun 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You'd think they were steel-toed boots. If I went down, my toes, ankles, shins and calves are the last thing I'd be worried about.
Can I get these in the Oiled Brown?
A shopper on Mar 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Only the men's Elsinore boots come in both oiled brown and black, so depending on your shoe size this may be an option. Likewise the women's El Bajo come in oiled brown but not black.
Can someone list the measurement for the sole under the ball of the foot and then the heel of these boots? I am currently wearing work boots to ride my Ninja 600R but need slightly more height wise. The measurement for my work boots' soles under the ball of my foot is about half an inch tall. Are these a little taller? Do you think they would be a good investment for my situation?
Jessica H on Jun 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have to tiptoe on my vintage Honda, but these boots have made that feel like flat footing. Plus they're so badass. Totally worth the investment IMO
