Icon Field Armor 2 Boots
Will Be Stiff
They are stiff out of the box and for quite some time after. I got used to them and they have held up great. It really feels like they have lots of protection.

Great Boot for the Price
This boot is a very comfortable boot; however maybe just not perfect for my type of riding. I've got a Victory Vegas which sits slightly lower to the ground - with these boots supporting higher up on the ankle it often is cumbersome to move from standing position back to riding positing when stopped. Overall a perfect boot otherwise though. Straps are very easy to adjust and fits snug to any adjustment. Boot is very rigid, which protects great from heat or falls. The padding is great inside the boot and even up throughout the ankle region as well. The boot is slightly on the heavy side; which I would imagine any good durable boot will be. I think this boot would be more suitable for a street bike rider. Overall, still very satisfied with my purchase and will use for years to come.

After watching two riders go down with their bikes while stopping because their laces got caught on their peg, I decided no more laces for me.
I wear a size 14 shoe. My foot is also wide. I ordered a size 14 in these ICON boots and they fit spot on. No laces to mess with. Two very secure and heavy duty clips on each boot holds them tight to my foot. They are heavy, but I am confident if I ever need them, their bulk will protect my lower leg. Walking is not difficult for short distances.
I like these boots so much I bought a second pair. Highly recommended.

Quality boots with an aggressive look
Quality boots that will protect your feet while giving you an aggressive look on your bike. Read many reviews on these boots as well as others, your shifter might need to be adjusted depending on your bike. Yes, your shifter is adjustable, it is designed specifically this way to accommodate for different sized boots or shoes. I ride a Yamaha fz1 and these icon field armor boots are exactly what I was looking for.

The ultimate boot, but extremely thick under the shifter.
Everything is top notch with this boot. The build quality, protection, ease of use, fit, looks, comfort, buckles etc. That being said, the boot is thick...really thick. I had to move my shifter up almost an inch to be able to fit this boot underneath it. At first I thought it just might be an issue with my Buell XB12S; however, when I test rode a couple of the new EBR bikes, the shifters on those had to be adjusted quite a bit in order to accommodate my boot. I would have simply sent them back and tried a different pair; however, I scuffed the side of them in my garage while walking to my bike for the first time.
I will keep trying them and hopefully they'll soften up or flatten out or something!
I DO recommend this product because it truly is a top notch boot in every way, just too thick for my taste.

Seems like it would provide excellent protection, but cannot get boot underneath shifter
Out of the box you can tell this was a very sturdy boot. It looks like it would provide excellent protection in a crash, but I could not get the boot underneath my shifter at all. I would like to keep the boots but it just won't work at all.

Very good boots for riding a Tuono V4R
I ride a Tuono V4R and for the most part i'll use a full boot (TCX S-race Boot) . These boots are like a light cruising back up option for me. They are very rigid in their construction - and for me that's a plus 'cause they won't let my feet end up in some twisted position in case of a crash.
They look bomb proof , very solid construction.
Shifting gear with 'em took a bit of getting used to on my Tuono ...but after a few riders .. i was more than fine with them.
Good job Icon!

Shifting not optional...
Sitting on my bike with these on I realized I could not fit the boot under my shift lever. They are beefy! And comfortable, and for $200 a seemingly impressive amount of protection, however the height of the boot from the sole to the shift panel at the toe is VERY high. Higher than my enduro knee high boots.
Prior to this test I even raised my shift lever from the stock position for personal preference and I had to nearly point the toes of my left foot straight to the ground to even get the boot under the lever.
I realize these are not designed for sport bike use and I will maintain that they PROBABLY WON'T WORK FOR MANY PEOPLE WHO RIDE SPORT BIKES. If I were to adjust the shift lever high enough to be able to shift up, then I would subsequently have to take my foot off the peg to be able to shift down.
I don't know about you, but my leg just don't bend that way!
