Icon Women's Sacred Tall Boots
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.

Tight fit but great looking
These boots really do look better in real life than they do in the photos. They feel really safe with the heel and shin protection. They are a bit tight, and you can't wear anything other than really thin socks with them. I would recommend getting a half size larger than you usually wear just in case. They felt tight on the top of the foot and the back of the ankle, but stretched out a little bit after wear. Overall, sweet boot.

Cute for a motorcycle boot!
It is so hard to find cute and functional women's motorcycle gear - I was delighted to find these boots!
I recently purchased these boots and I ordered a half size up. I usually wear 8 1/2 or 9 and I ordered 9 1/2 which was a tad too small and I wanted to be able to wear thicker socks so I had to exchange them for a size 10 (which was a quick and painless process) so definitely order a whole size up, not just half size.
These boots are very stylish for protective motorcycle boots. Super comfortable, and I didn't feel as if they needed any true break in time at all. I had no issues shifting at all. They do take a tiny bit of effort to zip and if you are going to wear your pants tucked in you should definitely wear skinny jeans as there is not too much room for extra fabric - if you have larger calves these may not fit you. They bunch a bit around the top of the foot/ankle but I suppose the leather needs to be a bit loose there for your foot to properly move.
Overall, this is a great, comfortable, quality made boot :)

Zero Ankle Support
I waited a little too long to write this, so I don't remember every detail anymore. I was looking for something stylish AND functional (surprise surprise). These seemed to fit the bill. I didn't love that they didn't have ankle plates, but was happy to find a tall, good-looking boot that had an axialmetric steel shank. I liked that they weren't too chunky. The shin protectors and shifter nubs were cool, too.
The problem? ZERO ankle support. I'm not talking about the lank of ankle protection--I knew that going into the purchase. But walking around my bedroom in them, I almost rolled my ankle. I felt much safer when I put my hiking boots back on (what I've been wearing to ride until I find the right moto boot).

I'm typically btwn 4.5 to 5 size shoes so I ordered these in blk size 5. I don't even have huge calves, but they were very tight and I needed assistance to zip them up. I'm not crazy about the leather texture. It looks more like dull rubber/faux suede. Also, they are very stiff. But it's really hard to find boots that are stylish and a feminine look with good protection. Wish they had more of a heel on them though since I'm short in stature. Can't say if I'd recommend these boots yet since I'm still waiting for exchanged size 5.5 to arrive. Guess my decision to keep or not will be based on the actual fit since the other option is to have ski boots/robot looking feet. Which I do not like at all.
