Retrograde engineering, a hallmark of the Icon 1000 design ethos. Historically significant silhouettes re-imagined with modern materials and construction techniques. And then given a personal twist of moto-apocalyptic 80's fever dreams. The Icon 1000 Prep Waterproof Boots are a prime example of this philosophy.
If you love the Icon Elsinore Boots but are constantly getting rained on (why would you do that?), the Icon 1000 Prep Boots may be exactly what you were waiting for. A select grain leather upper is mated with a full waterproof lining and lugged outsole for massive hits of awesome. Full-length rear zip and calf and heel strapping provide ease of entry and egress. A reinforced toe box, heel, and an axialmetric steel shank do the rest.

Looks good gets the job done
I get a lot of compliments on these boots. They also feel very comfortable if you are used to wearing work boots. Fit was spot on. Wearing pants inside the boot does take a little extra effort sometimes, but there is plenty of room to fit your jeans if you are neat about how you tuck them in.
Getting in and out can be a little fiddly, but I personally think that just adds to the "cool factor."
One downside to these boots is that they can get really hot. If you live somewhere like Texas where the weather might trick you into thinking you will have a cool autumn day, you may find yourself overheating in 90 degree weather. The gortex wannabe liner does it's job wicking sweat away from your feet, but the boots themselves don't breath. I keep a pair of Van's slip on shoes in my backpack just in case the weatherman lies to me.
Other than that, I love my "Mad Max's."

Icon Prep, Look great, feel good need patience to use.
I am a 6"-5" , 210 lb slim guy, size 13 ( D ) medium. Ride cruisers.
If you are accustom to western boots or tall work boots you will find these to be familiar, light and flexible boots but not sloppy fitting. If they are a new type of boot to you they may seem bulky and odd on your feet. Just give the boots and yourself time to adjust to each other. Wear a tall medium boot sock with them like a western boot.The low heel is nice for heel shifting and the sole flexibility after break in is like a good work boot. Don't judge sole flexibility by bending the sole with your hands they need you body weight to flex properly.with time. They seem a bit wide in the arch but this has not caused me any problems and the heel cup molded to my bony heels nicely and there is no heel slipping. The zipper requires some care in using but gets better with use, just be patient and press the sides together to help the zipper come up. Lube the boots with some leather lube cream ( not the shin plate ). I don't find the boots to hot / sweaty at all 75 F and below and they get stuffy approaching 80 F. The shaft diameter fits an average calf just fine but when you tuck the pants cuffs in fold the cuff over neatly toward the inside to take up excess material and this will help the zipper close to.

love the look and protection
Order the boot, fits true to size, I wear 11.5 sneaker order 11.5. very snug. But a riding boot is suppose to be snug and tight. It is not a hiking boot. I got this boot knowing its WP for bad weather riding. ( fall, winter). Wore them around house first day to break in a little, ride with them all week, feeling better each day. Yesterdays commute was ~40°. feet nice and warm. Not been in heavy rain yet, can't comment on WP. But this will not be a fair weather boot does not breath well enough warm weather. ( It is a thick black leather WP boot.#
Very stiff boot & thick leather, learning curve with foot controls, hard to feel foot controls well as previous boots #standard work/hike boot#
Jeans fit well over boot, can tuck jean in but a little tight to zip up with jean in boot. Gator takes up some space in there too. Easy on/ off with zipper & buckles.
I am happy with purchase, would recommend. Just understand what they are. # stiff, thick, black leather WP boot.)

Great looking boot but a couple of things to consider.
Unfortunately, this boots style doesn't match its comfort or durability (insole). The insole is flimsy and should be made with much better material given where this boots is priced in the market. I tried upgrading to a better insole from another pair of boots and the fit made it too uncomfortable. Getting the boot on and off is a challenge due to tight fit across the top of the foot right above the ankle. It's in the 60's today in Seattle and my feet got hot after wearing the boot a couple of hours. This is a Fall/Winter early Spring boot based on my experience. Styling A+ but some refinement needs to happen here: more room above the ankle, and a better insole would make a huge difference. I do like the way this boot feels while riding my Super Tenere. I'm going to keep these boots and hope for the best.
