Not really a successor to the original Tarmac
This is an excellent riding shoe for the price. The styling is not my preference, but that's really just a preference. I'd prefer more leather.

Comfort is generally good, except there are some quality issues and it fits a little tight. Fitting tight may be part of the design as it may help keep it on The Tarmac 2 has a lower height than the original Tarmac. The top strap on the originals is higher as well, so its likely better at holding it on your foot without having to make the boot really tight. However, this tightness (mind you its not running small, it just fits very snugly; length feels correct) coupled with a thick part of the edge of the tongue puts a lot of pressure on one part of my foot. It occurs where three sections of material come together, and there is likely too much excess material beyond the seam that has caused a thicker inside the tongue. Its only a problem on one shoe though and I ended up having the tongue on that edge overlap the outside just under the strap. There is an elastic web inside that can also cause a pressure point if it rolls up while putting on the shoe. Not something you notice until a few miles down the road. With the shoe fitting so tight, these little problems that would normally go unnoticed are problematic. Also, I use a shoe horn to get these on. The rear tends to want to collapse if I just try and slide my foot in and I suspect it will wear the inner rear of the boot rather quickly if I don't. The Tarmac 2 is much lighter and smaller overall which probably makes it a better riding boot (better feel and easier to get under or above the shifter). But the original tarmac was much more comfortable to walk around in due to the thicker softer sole.

I can't really speak to the protection but I suspect durability may be down from the originals. I can't imagine the suede toes are going to handle the wear from shifting as well as the rubber like plate on the originals. I will note though that one of the straps on the original Tarmac that I had broke where it folds back at the metal ring. That design allows for more leverage on tightening the strap as the Tarmac 2 does not fold back. Perhaps this was a common problem on the originals and caused them to use the new strap design instead.

Airflow is amazing. While the original Tarmac never really got warm inside, I actually feel airflow in the Tarmac 2. Definitely not recommended for cold/wet weather.

Summing this up, this is a very different shoe than the original Tarmac. It has a much sportier and lighter feel. The originals were heavier and bulkier resulting in a much more urban feel. Their purposes feel very different. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it does meet a different set of requirements though. So ultimately, its a matter of preference.

Great shoe for everyday riding
The Tarmac 2 is a great riding shoe for everyday riding. I have over 2000 miles in mine and only one complaint. The shoe is so comfortable that sometimes I forget to change out of them when I am done riding and go out in them. But luckily they are stylish enough to pass for a regular shoe.
Good breathability and comfort whether a short ride to store or long cruise around the town. Plenty of ankle support and foot support for shifting and sitting on foot pegs.

Great riding shoe!
I got these because I'm stationed in Okinawa. Need the air flow.

Style: They look like a casual shoe. You could wear these out in some jeans and they look good.

Comfort: The insole is a little thin. I'll eventually get the D30 insoles for some more cushion. And due to the retention system, there's a lot of pressure on the vein I have on the top of my feet. Which over time used to reallllly hurt. But the elastic bands have worn in better after some months of riding. The bands are strong, they will last.

That being said, they are comfortable to walk around in. I've done some minor exploring and climbing on rocks with them at destinations. Great shoe!

Flows a lots of air. And protected my feet in one bad crash, and protected my ankle in a lowside. Still not messed up at all. Great for the protection they offer.

You'll most likely really enjoy them.

Good Summer Shoe
First off, this is a narrow shoe. If you have wide feet, do not buy this shoe. With that said, they fit my feet and I could not be happier. They vent very well and are comfortable for all day riding/walking around. They feel very secure on my feet while riding. I've had mine for a year and have no complaints.

Ordering a second pair
I got these in the red, and they are great warm weather riding shoes. I hate shoes with laces and these go on and off in a second. The elastic works great and keeps them snug. I'm going to order them in black this season so I have options. These are comfortable for me for all day wear, but I have a somewhat narrow foot.

Complaints - the red does show dirt and scuffs pretty easily, and I wish the ankle protection went just a *little* bit higher. It just barely covers the bone.

Great commuter/city riding shoes
Bought the Tarmac shoes to replace a pair of 4 year old Sidi Slash boots. I liked the Tarmac much better that the old Sidi´s. Are very comfortable and feel protective.

The rubber sole has a good grip. Shoes are very cool, and not flashy. Ideal for rinding city motorbikes.

I ordered the same size of my sneakers (13) and fit perfect. Big guys with wide foots may feel kind of tight, but in my case (long and thin feet) are perfect.

I have a couple of Alpinestars Tall boots size 13, so looks like Icon and Alpinestars have the same sizing chart/fitting.

Great fit and very comfortable.
Love my Tarmac 2's. Great fit and very comfortable. I'm a size 11 in regular shoes. The 11 in the Tarmac's fit perfectly. Ride in them daily and commute daily. I even went hiking in my Tarmac's and they felt great. Great for walking around the house too. Love them.

Protection and daily wear friendly
Very happy with this shoe/boot - offers protection over regular shoes, but still is stylish and flexible enough to be able to wear to work or around town and not get weird looks.

Very comfortable, a breeze to take off and on. They are a bit "squeaky" when you walk around but I've only had them for a few days, and have no doubt they will break in and quiet down.

No issues wearing these at work for 8+ hours either. Good stuff!

These seem like good casual riding shoes that can also be worn all day. Looking forward to trying them out and seeing if they are comfortable for riding, as well as to use all day.

What's the difference between the icon tarmac 2 boots and the icon tarmac 2 CE boots?
A shopper on May 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: i have both and can't tell the difference.. I believe Icon just wasn't able to put the "CE" description on till they were submitted for approval.. similar to the stryker armor which is now "CE" approved and don't seem any different...
It states the Tarmac 2 has a reinforced toe. Does this mean it has a composite tie box?
