Icon Field Armor 2 Boots
Great for Riding
I bought these boots a year ago. They were very stiff out of the box. I wore them a lot and they loosened up some but not much. That being said they are great for riding. They're protective, solid, provide good grip on the pavement and allow plenty of movement for shifting. What they aren't is an every day boot. I wear them a lot trying to loosen them up and every time I take them off and put on my Rocky's it's like an angel is massaging my feet. So overall I would absolutely recommend them to someone looking for street riding protection who isn't looking for an all day every day boot. Bring a pair of shoes to change into if you plan on doing much walking.

I like them!
They are stiff to start, but I just wore them around for a few days and they have loosened up. The buckles make life easy and they seem to be good quality. They look good so you can wear them and not look like a fruit-booter if you are out and about. I like them.

Overall, I'm happy with these boots. I have wide feet and struggle to find shoes that fit, at times. These are plenty wide for me.
The buckle system is really nice - there is enough adjustment that I'm able to get a good fit, and they are big enough that I can do what I need to do with gloves on. Nothing fidgety about them.
The protection feels excellent - all the way around. VERY solid construction.
I bought these because my primary riding is commuting and 1-2 hour weekend rides when the weather cooperates. I have worn them with dress socks to about 40 degrees and my feet did not get cold a big.
When I first began wearing them, they really felt like a ski boot - there is very little flex in the ankle and sole. They have broken in a bit, and now I am not uncomfortable wearing in a store, or walking around and I have no issue changing gears on my street bike. My previous boots were a dual duty work boot/motorcycle boot, and these will not do that. They are bulky.
There are a few other options in the market with these features and at this price range, so I won't say they are a great VALUE. If you are looking for the deal of the century, look elsewhere. If you are looking for a good boot that does what it advertised, built well, and cover all the safety bases, these are worth a try.

My first boots
I ride BMW 600C scooter
Before I make the purchase, I spend several days surfing on the internet before I make my choice.
I have to recognize that they are excellent.

Solid boot that protects and not too flashy
This boot will provide great protection all around. Some people complained about having trouble shifting gears with it but I have no trouble at all on my Triumph. You will need to wear ankle high socks as the top of the boot will rub against your leg.
Completely satisfied and happy with this purchase.

Great protection. Heavy duty.
Boots are awesome. Little thick for a shifter lever. But nothing a quick adjustment can't fix. Also a bit stiff to walk around at first so breaking them in is a must. Also you can't put a price on safety. Great look overall. Highly recommend.

Stiff at first - uhh yeah like wearing a plastic ski boot. I looked like Frankenstein walking around in these at first. Also really hurt the area above my ankle after the first day.
However, 2 rides later and they are feeling better. Still a bit stiff but I can feel it getting better.
Icon gear is always a bit tight but I believe that is good as it loosens up it is molded to you.
- Look great! Really bad a**
- Love just snapping in - I hate lacing up boots.
- Tons of protection. Like wearing a short moto boot.
- Glad they made the sole like it is instead of the new trend in molded looking stuff. Nice old school flat soles are cool.
I wear a motocross sock with them (thicker bottom thin top) and can feel the buckle rivets on the top.
I have no problem with the shifter. Don't send them back - just ride for a while, they get better. I know the first day I was shifting with the soles sometimes....not good. But now no problem using them correctly.
Big fan of Icon gear and ZLA!!
