I'm new to biking so have no experience with other boots with which to compare these.
But for me they're great. I've been looking for gear that can be worn socially without screaming 'biker' - these do just that: they look like Caterpillar boots and are comfy as!
They're light, yet seem to provide ample support around the toe and ankle. The leather / nubuck is really nice. Stitching and glued seams all look to be well done and don't look like they'll fall apart. Add to that the clever incorporation of functional extras, like the reinforced toe cap and the consideration to prevent wear and tear of the leather upper when shifting gear.
One of my favourite things #and a really big tick# is that the rubber sole is really REALLY soft. This makes for a nice all-day-wearable boot that has ridiculously good grip on wet surfaces. These things are like stickies!
Only gripe is that if you have Pacific Island feet like me then these can look a bit odd because the leather tabs don't really stretch all the way across the front of the foot. But hey, I'm being a tad picky now!
I love them. Good job Icon :)
