Icon Prep Boots

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.

Features:

  • 12” top grain leather upper
  • Internal waterproof liner
  • Internal ankle plate
  • Axialmetric steel shank
  • Rear entry zip and straps
  • YKK zipper
  • Heat-pressed leather shifter panel
  • Heat-pressed molded leather shin plate
  • Tested and certified according to Standard EN 13634:2010

These boots are made for ridin Bought these to brave the Canberra winters. First week @ -7Cel. No cold air, feet not frozen off. Comfortable from the get go - when they break in expect them to be even better. Worthwhile investment. June 9, 2015
Things to consider Fantastic looking boot. The vintage styling is outstanding. PROs: 1) Style - A great modern interpretation of a vintage motocross boot blended with a Mad Max style. That said, it's not over done and these could be worn under jeans/pants where ever casual shoes are appropriate. 2) Protection - The leather is thick, tough, and layer in the right places without being overly rigid. 3) Quality Construction - They appear to be a well built boot with good or better workmanship and attention to detail. CONs: 1) Sizing - Multiple issues for me in this category a) No wide width available - I normally wear a wide shoe/boot but can often wear a normal width depending on the footwear. I ordered a 1/2 size larger than normal and these boots were still way too narrow for me. The length was OK but if you have a wide foot these may not be for you. b) They run small (not talking about width here). These run at least a 1/2 size smaller than "normal". 2) Hot - this boot is NOT for summer. I wore the pair I ordered for about 15-20 minutes in my air-conditioned living room and could not wait to get out of them for the hot feet. I would only wear these in the winter or really cool temps in spring/fall. I really wanted to keep these boots. I decided to return them to avoid spending $270 on uncomfortable feet. Hey ICON - I think the attempt to provide a waterproof lower is admirable. That said, offer a summer version of this boot WITHOUT the waterproof lining. Current design will really limit sales and. Moreover, offer this boot in normal and wide widths. June 6, 2015
Killer boots, man! Pros: comfortable (break in nicely, but you wouldn't want to hike in them), waterproof (tested); looks/style; build quality is great, have been durable (used daily for 3 months & nothing is coming apart yet); protection is better than most touring/cruising boots. Cons: as other have noted, they have a tall toe box (but you will probably get used to it). The zipper & snap system, while pretty rad, can be a bit cumbersome (they are not the quickest to get on & off); not very breathable (but they are waterproof). June 1, 2015
Looks Great I love the retro dirt bike look, but there are a lot of just for looks straps and snaps. The zipper is a little sticky if you actually get them in the dirt. Nothing had broken off or ripped off though. They are a little narrow but they seem to be stretching out a little as they break in. I'm wearing them on an Adventure Touring (f800GS) bike for cross county trips not a dirt bike, so I think they will be fine. May 18, 2015
My Favorite Boots I purchased these last fall and have worn them for about 6 months. I’m very satisfied. Likes: They are very comfortable on and off the bike. These are not the kind of boots you want to wear on a hike or at work, but for short walks, such as into a restaurant, or a short shopping trip, they are perfect. Protective qualities are top notch. I like the fact that they protect a good part of my leg, more than three-quarter length boots I have. The leather is thick enough that I feel they offer much better protection than some boots I have owned with synthetic materials. The styling is one of the things that drew me to this boot initially. You are definitely making a statement with these, especially when warn outside of your pants, which is what I normally do. However, they are not as wild looking as Icon 1000 Elsinores. I do not feel these are hot as some have complained, although I have not worn them in temps above the 80s yet. Summer is coming and I suspect that once temps hit the 90s or above, I may be switching to a different boot. I also find that whether a boot is hot or not often depends on the socks you choose. If I’m riding with thick cotton ones, it does make a difference. Dislikes: The zippers are tricky sometimes. The zipper on one boot has a slight pucker in it that make is challenging to zip. Sizing: I wear 12 shoes and have a wide foot and 12 fit perfectly. However I wear very thin polypropylene socks when I ride. If I wore thick cotton socks, I’d probably have to upsize. March 21, 2015
Batman's Clown Shoes. The sole is falling off the and button snapped off. There is no adjustment in the boot at all; just hope they wont pack out on you. I wore them around as much as I could to break in the ankle so I could even sift my bike. Now l can shift and so does my heel, in and out of the pocket that is. The sole looks like it has a welt but it doesn't, its a fake stitch. Other people have said how they are warm, this is true, its because the boot has a liner in it. I guess this is how they make it a one size fits all leg. Disappointed big time. For $270 these boots should be for life! March 18, 2015
Awesome boots I've been wearing these boots for about 2 weeks now, and they are fantastic! They look great (I purchased the brown ones), the fit is perfect, and appear to be very durable and well constructed. I tested out the waterproofing by standing in ankle-deep water, no problems. They are fairly comfortable to walk in, and I suspect that they will become more so after they break in further. As for riding with the boots, no complaints, however I ride a pretty small bike and I had to adjust my shifter lever to make it a bit easier to fit the boot underneath, as the toe of the boot is kinda tall - no biggie. The boots seem to have good traction on pavement and even painted road surfaces; I do not fear for my feet when it comes time to put my feet down, even under dangerous circumstances. My one and only complaint is that the lower zipper-cover snaps snap in a forward direction on the inner side, which means that as I walk there's a chance that I'll catch the snap-strap on something (like my other boot) and the force of it will cause the snap to pop open. This is a minor annoyance and I'm sure after a few more weeks I'll adapt to avoid this issue. March 3, 2015
Great boots with plenty of protection and moderate comfort The fit on these boots are right on. I am a size 9.5 narrow and I bought size 9.5. The foot fits well on the bed of the boot and it's neither wide nor narrow. The boot looks expensive and well made but the sole it's very cheap and doesn't have much support or cushioning. I replaced the sole with a green high arch sole from superfeet and now the boots are more supportive and comfortable. While on my bike my left boot didn't have much feel for the shifter so I decided to use a small plastic clamp to flatten the toe box for about 1/4 inch and that did the trick. Since the boot has a shifter pad the change is not noticeable. These boots have a lot of protection and your feet will be safe in case of a crash; However the lower edge of the shin protector puts some pressure to the the top of your foot which causes discomfort if you are wearing dress socks. since I don't have motorcycle high socks, I used a pair of skiing socks and the discomfort was gone. To break in the boots I wore them to the office for 9.5 hours. During that time I started to feel discomfort after 8 hours but it wasn't painful. These are great boots with plenty of protection, moderate comfort, good to walk around, and they look great. October 28, 2014

Clyde C: Yes its CE certified and way better than tennis shoes.
Good for cool to cold weather. Has a fussy zipper, be careful to squeeze edges together when zipping up to lower stress on zipper and lube the zipper with a bit of olive oil wax.

PEDRO C: I've had mine for a week, 7 days exactly. I made a point to use them every day for a week to break them in. During the first couple of days they were snug, and very stiff. I had to take them off only after a couple of hours because my feet hurt. Today, day 7, I've been wearing them all day. After five hours or so, they still feel very comfortable. I'm a size 9 on regular shoes, and ordered the boots size 9 as well. So, make sure you break them in for a few days before your event. They are terrific boots, well made and look fantastic.

Chad G asked: I am looking for a good all around boot. I am just starting some dual sport with my new f800 GS bmw, and this seems like a good boot for someone who doesn't do crazy technical riding, more like basic quad trails, and fire roads. Do you think this boot will meet my needs or should I look at a little more technical boot like the SIDI Adventure Rain? Feb 1, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
David J: I was actually considering the SIDI Adventure Rain boots when I made this purchase. The Adventure boots are probably better breathing, more comfortable, and a little bit safer. However, if you keep your adventuring on the lighter side of things, it is hard to justify the extra 100 or so dollars they cost.

To clarify, I have never wrecked in these boots, but I feel safe enough in them even if they lack super obvious plastic armor bits. The kind of riding I do is a far cry from actual "adventure" riding, but I do ride to remote areas and hike a bit further. These boots do a good job, and I would for sure use these boots if I had a more off road oriented bike.

Stanley K: The shifter on my left boot does not bend well and rubs against the top of my foot causing some discomfort. Does this go away once the boots break in or do other people not have this issue? I've had the boots for 2 days but the discomfort is still there. Jun 3, 2015

Alex W asked: What would you say are the minimum and maximum comfortable temperatures for this boot? Does the waterproofing reduce breathability when it's warmer? I live in southern california where it rains infrequently, so I will not make much use of the waterproofing.

I have owned a pair of Icon field armor boots and found that the boots made it very difficult to shift. I worry that these boots will make shifting difficult. I own a ninja 500r, do you think they will cause shifting issues?
Thanks

S W: I can't address if these boots will be too hot for your feet, got mine in October and it hasn't been warm enough in the Pacific Northwest to know. They are not vented at all.

The toes of the boots are thick, much like a heavy work boot, I ride a KMT SMT and have no difficulty moving around above and below the shift lever. You may have to adjust your shift, which is not hard, to make these boots work. As for waterproofing I hve ridden them in the wet and my feet have stayed dry, pouring rain might be a different story...

Ronald S: I live in Northern California and have worn these boots in temperatures from 40 degrees to 80 degrees and have not even thought about my feet being too cold or too hot but those are moderate temps. They have been the most comfortable boots I have ever owned. As far as difficulty in shifting is concerned it could be a problem but I just moved my gear shifter one tiny notch on the spline and it took care of that. Nov 29, 2014

A shopper asked: Are the two back straps functional in any way, or just for looks? Can they be cinched up or adjusted in any way for a tighter (or looser) fit? Also, not sure what a "heat-pressed molded leather shin plate" is...is there a hard part in the shin area, or just extra leather for protection? Oct 20, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
S W: The two straps across the back of the boot are merely decorative, they do not effect the fit in any way. The leather shin guard is really hard and will provide protection. I cannot tell if the leather is reinforced or not, I pushed on it as hard as possible and could not get it to deform.

I am waiting to write my review on the boots until I have ridden them in significant rain. For now I'd rate them 5 of 5.

David F: The upper back straps can be tightened a by one button. But if you have skinny calves you will have a gap. Kind of handy though because it allows for a bit of extra airflow and the tucking of trousers. While still keeping your ankle and foot safe. There is a harder part in the shin. Oct 20, 2014
