Icon Field Armor 2 Boots
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!!

Great boot, tall height
I actually bought this pair of boots but had to return them. They look awesome, fit well, and have tons of protection.
However, they are a little still when you first get them. The reason I had to return them is that the boot thickness was just too big to fit on my sportbike. The height from the bottom of the sole to the top of the boot was too large to fit under my shifter even after adjusting it. If I had some kind of cruiser or touring bike with less angle and more room under the shifter, I would love these 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.
