Icon Field Armor 2 Boots
Good quality product
Overall shoes are great but there are two cons with which you will have to live and once you accept that, those shoes become perfect:
1. When on the bike - Shoe is too tall to fit under the gear sifter on my bike (F6C Valkyrie) and on most sport/street/standard bikes. However no issues on Yamaha Raider SCL. I was able to find a way to shift with sole edge and after several rides I do not feel any discomfort.
2. When off the bike - there is no way to walk around a lot in those. Maximum is Bike -> Bar -> Restroom -> Bike. Shoes are stiff and ankle movement is limited.
Regardless of those cons once you wear them, you will see and feel that they will protect you.

These Boots Will Outlast Mankind
I'm pretty sure these boots were featured in the apocalyptic historical document "Waterworld". These boots survived an apocalypse and remained in tact on the ocean floor for 500 years before being found by "the Mariner". Yes, they're big, but if you're trying to choose between these boots or your bike, just know this: roads will be underwater in the near future - you'll still be able to use the boots, but your bike will be useless. Pay no attention to reviews saying "these boots don't fit under my shifter". If these boots don't fit under your shifter your bike needs to be modified! Designed for continuous roundhouses and relentless @$$ kicking, these boots make guys like Chuck Norris, Van Damme, and Steven Seagal jealous. Baddest boots on the planet - and will remain so for at least another 500 years (or until the FA3 arrives).

These boots seem great. All the features, convenience and comfort. They are very hot in hot weather and not waterproof.

Look great, stiff as to be expected for protection, Noisy as heck. Cannot walk across a room w/out drawing attention to yourself. Annoying squeaking no matter how I adjust straps, tighter or looser. Tried to break them in, want them to work so badly, but it is not to be. Have worn them for 2 weeks w/ no lessening of creaking/squeaking. Bummed. Jim

These boots are rough and tough. These boots are very comfortable for the ride, but not for long term walking.

I love the style, hardcore and honest / purposeful
I live in different parts of the world and I keep a pair of these boots at each location. I also ride modern sport bikes and retro classics. The design of these boots fit either style, and I always feel good in them.

Never thought I would buy ICON boots.. These things rock!
I got these boots because I needed to replace my Alpinestars SMX-2 that only lasted me 1 year until the sole started coming off. These are gonna be my city riding/neaar distance riding boots.
I was very happy to see it on closeout and because it was at a good price + my zilla cash back, I dove in!
The most common complaint about these boots are that it is hard to shift. As soon as I got these boots earlier, I walked to the garage and hopped on my bike. I adjusted the shifter a little bit and that's the end of it. Problem solved.
These boots are very stiff, stiffer than your average mx boots. The shape of the soles however make them comfortable. The stitching on the sole is a little bit sloppy but looks ok from afar. I cannot attest to it's slip resistance since I haven't used it on pavement yet.

uncomfortable but protective.
i bought these Icon boots and i personally dislike them .. they r big heave bulky and very uncomfortable but on the other hand they are hard, solid and protecting not to forget in hotter climates u get a pair of roasted feet oh and one more thing the boots r very thick at the toes so it makes shifting on a sports bike a lil difficult. .. it comes down to this.. if ur looking for comfort these just won't do but if ur looking for protection go for it just bare in mind u can't have both features with these boots.
