Icon Sacred Tall Women's Boots
Had to return them
If you have wide calves these won't fit you. I loved them. I first ordered them in size 5.5 then size 6. Size 5.5 fit my foot but wouldn't close around my calf so I ordered a size up. The size 6 fit my foot big and still would not fit around my calf. My calves measure 23.5 inches at the widest portion. You have to have super skinny legs to fit these. They're really nice and when I tried them on they felt like they could be comfortable if they fit plus they're super cute!

Great brown boot, finally
Why can't I find brown accessories for women? I did not know that the first rule of Moto Club is that you do not talk about the lack of choice for women who want to wear brown.
I picked these boots because I was looking for brown boots that didn't look like I was working on a construction site or hiking the Appalachian Trail with a congressman or two. I wasn't sure about the brown boot with the white soles, but I love them. Makes them different. And the boot has peg nubbins. Hello!! Does your boot have nubbins? I love my nubbins. I have them on both boots even though the right boot doesn't need them. It's all about symmetry and not hogging the nubbins. Nubbins for everyone!
It's a light brown. Keep that in mind if it matters. It shouldn't matter. You have nubbins.
There are buckles at the ankles to adjust if you need to. Like I said, the sole is white (as are the ... NUBBINS!). That doesn't affect the grip, naturally, but it is a much different look. The material of the sole goes up the back of the heel and has a metal bit for protection, visibility, and to make you look like you're on Star Trek.
If I had to have one complaint, it's the width of the shaft as it goes up your calf. (I have tried to re-write that to avoid the giggles, but that's what it is called!) I like my jeans over my boots. This flared style makes me look like I have a big wart on my shin, so I resort to tucking the jeans in. You may like that. It's okay. I won't judge. It's not that I don't like the look of jeans tucked in, it's just that I am so bad at it, that I end up looking like I'm wearing golf knickers.
I love having brown boots now that I can wear as regular shoes after a ride. Although I'd like a better selection of brown boots for women, I do think I'd still have chosen these. (And, no, leopard print does not count as a brown option.)

I have had my boots since March 2015 and absolutely love them. I am always being asked where I got them from and are they really a Moto boot. They were very stiff when I first got them but didn't take long to soften up.
My only whinge is the zip isn't smooth, keep thinking its going to break as it catches but just don't rush putting them on.

I wanted to wait to write a review so that I had a chance to wear them for a while. It was really important to me to have not only good looking (and tall) boots but also that they would be comfortable just walking around in off the bike. First when I got them they were really really stiff but as I wore them around the house and rode with them they loosened up and now they feel amazing! I could wear them all day. They feel protective and look great. I get lots of compliments on them. I am a 7.5 shoe size so I ordered the 8 and it fits perfectly. Girls, if you want tall motorcycle boots that look sexy and can wear all day without sacrificing protection look no further.

Good value for the money
I like these boots. They fit true to size (I ordered an 8) and are well made. They are wide enough in the calf to accommodate tucked-in jeans.The only drawback is that they are quite stiff, and this was no surprise to me as other reviews had warned me. No doubt they will soften up with repeated wearings.

Love these boots!
I got these based on reviews and the style - I wanted higher boots with protection, that still looked cute off the bike. I really like the look and fit of these boots. The are definitely a little stiff the first few times wearing them, but loosen up after a few times. They do, however, run small. I usually wear a 7 - 7 1/2, but size 8 fits perfectly on my feet and calves. They just fit over a pair of skinny jeans, but aren't uncomfortable by any means. I also really like the shifting reinforcements in the toe. Great boots!

very good boot, I'll buy the same ones when my current ones wear out.
Very good riding boot. I've been riding 5 days a week to and from work here in Florida, these boots have seen 2 rainy seasons and are still holding up well. A little yamalube every couple months keeps them fresh looking and soft.

Good boot, not great
The reviews really helped - I ordered a full size up due to comments and they are a good fit (I am a US 7.5 - ordered a US 8.5).
They look good and I haven't worn them riding yet but they are not super comfortable. I wouldn't say they were uncomfortable, but I did expect more support. As one other reviewer commented, these boots have zero ankle support, which is a big let down - and they don't have as much support under foot as needed in my opinion either. I imagine I will break them in with wear and get used to them and I am still happy with the purchase - just wish there was more support!
Another thing is they don't have ankle plates or any protection or padding besides the leather - I would have liked this ideally also.
The main reason I purchased these is so I could wear them to work and not have to change once I arrived - they do meet this need, they are a fashionable boot and I would feel comfortable wearing them to work in winter.
The other reason I purchased them is for extra warmth and wind protection in winter - again, they meet this need - very think shin protection and a good length for warmth in winter.
