Icon 1000 Truant Boots
It's a very durable and great looking boot. The price is reasonable and the comfort is superb. This boot looks like an everyday casual boot. I highly recommend buying another pair. Anyone who goes with this boot won't regret it!

Awesome looking boots, not sure about durability...
I wear these boots on a daily basis when I commute to/from work. I thought the style out of the box was awesome but as far as durability goes, not so sure. After having these boots for about 5 months, I can say that they wear out pretty fast, and it doesn't take much. I don't walk around in them, I purely wear them to ride and the leather is wearing off, the sole is starting to detach itself and the stitchings are starting to loosen up. I will probably bring them to a shoe smith to try and make them look newer. Like I said, I love the look (when new), just didn't hold up like I though 200$ boots would.

If your going for the looks
Honestly I bought them for the gothic looks rather than safety. Turned out they look better in pictures than in real life (the toe is kind of a dissappointment)
Safety wise they seem good but a little stiff for movement.

A little pricey but...
I think $200 seems like a lot when you think of this as a riding shoe. However if you take into consideration that this piece of gear offers way more rigidity and protection than the average shoe, 200 is a decent price point. That is why I caved and bought these. I wear a size 12 in vans so I ordered 12 in these and they were perfect so I'd say true to size. They are nice and rigid so they don't bend when you shift and the thickness of the leather seems like they would offer phenomenal protection. (I don't want to find out but its piece of mind) They are actually more comfortable to walk in then a sidi or alpine star full boot for sure. I would say they are the equivalent of a heavy work boot when walking in them but they look awesome and I have already gotten compliments on them. I say buy if you are thinking about it.

I got these for a Christmas present. It's been almost a month of wearing them,and I couldn't be more happier. They are a huge step up from the Converse I used to wear (didn't have any boots at the moment) and did take some getting used to while shifting..out of the box they are a bit stiff,but after breaking them in, I LOVE them..They fit me like a glove,super comfortable,never notice I have them on outside of riding my bike. I would definitely recommend getting a pair!

First riding boot
This is my first riding boot so I don't have much to compare it to. I bought this because it doesn't look like a boot (as much). But don't let the casual style fool you, these are very sturdy/thick and my feet and ankles feel very protected with these on. So far so good. On my right foot I've noticed some pinching in the front (where the tongue meets the laces) after being on the bike for 20+ minutes. As I'm a noob rider I'm not sure how much of this is just me being too cramped on the bike and/or not keeping my foot in proper position. Or being leather perhaps it'll soften up in this area after break in.
Others mention not being very comfortable to walk in when off the bike. I'm sure it's very subjective, but I don't feel uncomfortable when walking in them. Although I plan on carrying alternate shoes if I take them to school or anywhere I'll be walking for an extended amount of time.

Effn awesome riding shoe!!
If you don't have track boots for riding street these are a sweet alternative. the most enjoyable shoe i own, stiff enuf for very aggressive riding and the styling is so current I can wear them out picking up chics. Badass product

I ordered these a little before Christmas to receive as a present and have to say that I love them. I ordered the brown and they look good with a pair of jeans and no one knows I am wearing motorcycle boots. I have gotten compliments on them from both motorcyclists and non riders. I was a little worried about the boots when I received them as they are VERY stiff but after wearing them for a week or so they broke in well and are now easily as comfortable as any shoes I own and by far the most comfortable boots I own motorcycle oriented or not. You will definitely need at least above ankle cut socks so that the sides don't rub on your ankle throughout the day but other than that extremely comfortable. I went for a 4-5 hour ride the other day and all through the day I was fine and had no urge to rip them off when I got home. I also wear them to work all day and have no problems with them throughout the day. I didn't know how well these would work on a sportbike due to the riding position but no problems have arisen at all. High quality and comfort level! I would recommend these boots to anyone with any style of bike.
