Icon Elsinore Women's Boots
The Icon 1000 Elsinore Women's Boots are straight out of On Any Sunday. A blast from the MX tracks of decades past, the classic five-strap, alloy-buckle chassis, stamped metal heel plate, and internal steel shank combine for a serious dose of moto-x homage. The traditional Goodyear welt construction mates the Icon street-specific sole to the magnificent leather upper. A medial entry zipper, allocated from Paratrooper jump boots, is the only luxury the Elsinore will allow itself. A modern relic from an era when men were iron and tanks were steel. The Elsinore, old-school MX reinterpreted for the urban sprawl.
- Women specific fit
- 12” top grain leather upper
- Goodyear welt construction
- Icon cast metal buckles
- Icon stamped metal heel plate
- Heat pressed leather shifter panel

Sizing Note: The 8.5 Women's Elsinore Boot measures 15" in diameter at calf level (11" from the sole) with the buckles on their widest settings.

Reviews & Questions
- Adjustable side straps - you can tighten these up to fit under/over pants and according to your ankle/shin.
- Toe is reinforced in such a way that it feels "heavy duty"
- Look cool
- Ankle and shin protection lacking from some boots
- Good width at toes
- Definitely not boots for the track! (LOL)
- Heavy - you're literally carrying weights on your feet which make it difficult to walk
- Super stiff - these are like wearing ski boots at first ... very little give and difficult to break in. I've had them now about 3 weeks and they are finally starting to bend *just a little bit* ... and I wear them for 10 hour days about 4 days out of the week.
- Tread is not good for riding on a sport bike - The tread is super thick and that's good or bad depending on what you're looking for ... but I ride on my toes and the grip combined with the weight of the boot (and break-in time) makes it difficult to move my foot back and forth to shift
- Ankle/heel width is too wide ... I have a wide foot at the toe, so the toe of the boot feels better than the heel ... makes me wonder if these are actually guy boots that they are pressing out at "women's" b/c my heel is moving up and down due to the lack of boot flexibility ... I'm gonna have to buy heel inserts to prevent movement (not good !) ... Guys have a broader ankle/heel than women ... women's boots typically taper to the more narrow ankle/heel and that's why we need WOMEN's boots
... I purchased a size 10 (wear a 9 shoe) so I could be sure to get the width I needed. I think my foot would be screaming for width if I had a size 9 ... but now b/c I have a 10, there's too much room in the ankle/heel
- No arch support - wearing these walking a couple blocks or all day while at work will make your knees and hips hurt due to lack of flexibility and no support in the foot ... makes ya feel like you're flat footed ! (again, think "ski boot" with no arch support) ... I've been having knee and hip problems when I get out of these boots and have to re-balance the body through stretching and other means
COMPARED TO OTHER BOOTS:
- ICON boots typically are not performance boots for me (fit is not great for performance b/c they don't fit well in the width of the toe/ provide arch support/ don't fit well in the ankle&heel) ... my first pair were Icon which I traded in for used Oxtar (now TCX brand)
- TCX boots are too tight for me in the toe
- Dainese boots fit me the best (great foot support and are flexible) ... they are performance boots for the same price as these boots.
- Haven't been able to get to other brands in a store yet (e.g. Spidi)
MY OVERALL PERSPECTIVE:
I don't think the average rider/passenger cares about the details as do I b/c they don't need what I need from a boot.
Do your best to try before you buy ... I knew I was gambling when I purchased these boots b/c I figured I had a 50/50 chance of them actually working out. They were not in a store around me (right now, it may be different). I fell for the look ... cuz, gawd, we women have so few options when it comes to cool looking AND comfortable performance gear.
Depending on WHY you are buying, will depend on if these boots are a good choice for you ...
- These boots make my foot look 3 times it's natural size ... if you like the "goth"/"apocalyptic" look - these are good for you. My typical gear is custom kevlar pants over leggings, so the clothes I'm wearing with these boots is not a fashion issue for me ... either way (with the pants or leggings) the boots look good.
- If you are a passenger rider and you won't be walking around a lot in these boots, they should be fine.
- If you are a gal who rides cruisers, they should be fine b/c you're not riding on your toes.
- These are quickly becoming my "option" pair after I get them broken in and I'm going to buy a pair of Dainese and save my feet/knees/hips
Yup, these are heavy boots, but if you are used to wearing boots then it won't be a huge issue. I wore them 24/7 to break them in and now I wear them all the time, riding or not. I am a very curvy girl and didn't have any issue with the calves being too small. For the break in period I put the buckles on the loosest setting and I've been tightening them as they break in. They are leather so they do wear in nicely. When you buy them, make sure they are good and snug, almost uncomfortably so. Mine were and now the foot has plenty of room if I wanted to wear boot socks in colder weather.
Protection wise these suckers can take a beating and keep you in good shape. I may or may not have tested this theory by dropping my bike on myself in our gravel driveway...more than once. My leg was bruised, but my boots kept me looking good from the calf down. I have no doubt that if I were to go down at speed they'd keep me in good shape.
As far as shifting goes, well, I have a tiny Honda CB350 and I can shift just fine. It took a few adjustments to make everything fit, but fit it does. Yes, the toe box is pretty big, but I use the side of my toe anyway so I don't need to get my whole toe under there.
A note on quality: I saw a few reviewers had quality issues. When I ordered my boots they popped a seam on the top of the foot within two days. Revzilla replaced them for me and I haven't had one complaint or issue with the replacement pair, so I can only guess that as with most things, sometimes you just get a bad apple.
All in all these are some sexy motorcycle boots. I love mine to pieces and I plan on picking up a brown pair of the mens...unless ICON would like to start offering the women's in brown as well.
For me, these fit perfect right out of the box from top to bottom, almost as if custom molded after my foot shape, further evidence they were made for a woman. The custom feeling was enhanced by the ingenious straps which can take you from loose to tight at whatever point on an ankle or calf needed. 2nd pin fit better than the first and as they break in, holes can always be added. Decided to ride with jeans tucked in though cuffing them up looked acceptable as did the They are stiff, but not rigid or restricting. The toes is so solid and the boots so armored that if my foot were run over it would be injury free.
Walking around there was occasional toe bump up against the front on both but they flexed easily enough to where I could see myself wearing them at my destination, even working. Wish they were a smidge longer in the toe though b/c to go up a bit would mean when they break in they would be too large elsewhere.
I love them. I really do. Having worn about a dozen manufacturers boots while motorbiking the past 40 years, the past 10 on sport bikes, it was quickly apparent these were designed to excel at that, while also looking hot. Can't tell you the numbers of looks, honks, and shouts I got from guys and gals.
Last motorbike specific boots I rode in were the waterprrof TXC/Oxtar Sunray, & before that, I had an IXS girly boot which sported only the toe shifter pad to qualify as a biker boot. My go to have been Frye Engineers, CAT Alaska and Carly boots for going out, errands, or commuting. These have the heft of the Alaska's, but the flexibility of the Carly, and protection of the taller Frye and Sunray. And like the TCX boot line, Icon made these to perform while riding, which they do outstandingly.
First thing I noticed was how tough it was to fit between the sliders and pegs/shifter. Finding Neutral to start/warm up took longer than ever before, but toe offs, stops, and bike maneuvering in tight spots or parking seemed easier somehow, even though this boot is the same 1" sole height as my CATs, attributable perhaps to the the stiff height of the shaft.
Accelerating I experienced a lot of missed or skipped upshifts, but had no issues downshifting. After years and years of riding, you get the feel of a bike, and it becomes more instinct than finesse. As the boot loosened, and I realized how I had to point my toe to achieve clean shifts, the number of missed gears decreased. The less thought I placed on how they fit on the bike, the more I could anticipate post break-in comfort and a lifetime of protection.
PROS (and these are biggies):
Most intriguing to me was how much more control I felt this boot provided. It's as if b/c the boot is so stiff, it allowed me to manipulate turns and aversive moves with much more control and therefor confidence. B/c my ability was ratcheted up, I didn't want to stop riding, but longer meant more enjoyable than the last time out.
Although they are rather warm, my Daytona 675 exhaust is routed under the seat but these prevented the scalding heat to reach my legs. The sticky sole kept me planted on whichever pegs I intended to use once I got the feel of the thick toe.
The tops of the both boots would catch on the arm of my passenger peg, which is an easy remedy since they're removable, but pretty alarming the first few times my leg didn't get free to tap the brake or shift, forcing me to grab a handful of clutch.
When standing on the left boot toe while pumping gas, noticed it left a dimple on the interior even after the outer dent disappeared?
My foot slipped down and off the drive side (left) foot peg because of the extreme angle of the toe to get under my frame slider to shift. There is ample traction, it was just how my weight had shifted while pointing my foot down to engage the gear caused the boot to let go.
Revzilla quickly honored the product warranty given my pair had seams on both boots which were sewn onto the out sole rather than under it (see images). In a crash I'd be afraid they would fail at the seams. Unless my shoe guy (I have a shoe guy) could fix that and push the length a tiny bit, not sure I should opt for these again. Unless I pick up the Ducati Scrambler!
Am considering the SIDI Apex Lei for summer but would love Icon to reduce toe height -- which is 3" from outsole to top, making the total height to fit peg space 4". Then women could enjoy some style while riding fully protected. Still have not ruled these out for fall either.

I have athletic build with neither anemic nor bulging calves, and these fit fine. If you can't fit into traditional tall boots without needing the wide-calf version (think Frye's or similar), then you'll likely fit into these without a problem. They aren't very tall - low to mid-calf depending on height - and there is definitely some wiggle-room on the fit. I was also expecting a behemoth of a boot based on reviews stating their significant weight, but I don't find them to be particularly cumbersome compared to a regular pair of engineer boots. Women manage to shove their feet into tons of uncomfortable shoes - and as far as these boots go, they're definitely on the mild end of the spectrum. They're substantial but not weighty, protective but not restricting, and a little boot oil makes the break-in fly by and takes some of the obscene brightness out of the yellow stitching. If you ride in boots or protective footwear already, these will probably seem like heaven; if this is your first pair of moto footwear, they may seem a bit unwieldy.
The biggest caveat with these boots is for short women, and something I wish I had known: IF you are short and toe any of your bikes, these will lack the flex to do so. You will not be getting the ball of your foot down and flexing the mid-boot, nor will you be able to point your toes down and catch the ground. You WILL end up doing the saddle-slide or eyeballing the highest point of the road or something similar. Even after a significant break-in period, these simply don't have the flex if you have a taller bike and shorter inseam.
Comfort: I found them comfortable right out of the box. I did wear them around the house for a day to break them in - just in case they needed it. There is some extra room in the heel area and little arch support, so I'll probably purchase some inserts for them. I also think I may need to tighten the straps to the smallest settings up the leg part.
Protection: They seem to offer very good protection but of course, without testing that through a fall, I can't really say. I hope I don't find out. They are solid and firm in all the right places to provide good protection for the foot and ankle.
Style: These boots look great. I currently wear some over pants and these get hung up on the straps, which looks a little goofy when walking around. I'd like to find some armored jeans to tuck into them. I think that would look better.
Function: I ride an SV650S and was concerned from what I'd read that these boots wouldn't work with the shifter set up on the sport bike. At first, I couldn't get my foot under the shifter, but we adjusted it up and now I have no problem getting under the shifter. The issue now is that I can't feel the shifter due to the size of the toe box and firmness of the boot. So I have to go by feeling the click of the gear engaging to know I've shifted. I also have to be sure to release the shifter after each up shift. If I don't release it (by lowering my foot off the shifter) the next up shift won't take. It's a little tricky because of the mentioned size of the toe box and lack of any feel for the shifter itself. I'm sure this is just a learning curve for the muscle memory and I'll soon be able to shift all the gears smoothly.
I think you might still be on your toes a bit, but I don't know what you are riding in now. I can tell you that these boots are good an stiff, which is what I wanted. I have no fear of hurting a shin or ankle if I go down. And I like the fact that they have a good heel on them to make me just a little taller.
One thing I found is that the stitching is really yellow, which I didn't like a whole lot, but my husband used some black Kiwi polish and scuffed them up a little, now they look perfect. I would totally buy these again...
Simply wearing them, especially on the bike, will break them in faster than you realize. At first they seem cumbersome but after a while you will grow to appreciate them like no other. Walking, bending, are good also.
Hope this helps! :)
These are my most prized piece of equipment.
The Forma Adventure boots were 15 inches tall!!! Those would go up practically to my knees!
I'm looking for some added height to my heel as I'm tippy toes on my F700 GS. And the reviewer said these add a good amount! I just can't have them be super high in the calves!
As far as waterproof goes, I don't know if they're water"proof", but I filled my bathtub up with about 3 inches of water, put my boots on, and hopped in. They didn't soak through at all, but if water goes in over the cuff then there's nothing you can do about that. Only had my feet in for about 30 seconds.
I hope this is helpful! These are awesome boots, and I never want another pair!
(it was a motorcycle usa site and i just Googled Icon Elsinore + sport bike to get it)
To answer your question, no there is not a steel toe in this boot. However, there is a pretty strong toe guard. Everything about this boot is great and I feel it has good protection. BTW, I know a woman who is a daily rider who swears by her steel toe. It's a personal preference. Hope this helps.
