Icon Tarmac 2 Boots The Tarmac 2 Boot is the fusion of athletic shoe design and necessary motorcycle riding features. An emphasis on street sportbike-specific geometry, increased comfort, and ease of use sets the Tarmac 2 Boot apart from all motorcycle boots that have come before. A reinforced upper, steel shank, molded ankle plate, reinforced toe and heel box equip the Tarmac 2 Boot for duty. The sculpted bottom unit was specifically designed to work with sportbike rearsets and allow positioning of your foot for all-day riding comfort and performance. Add a pre-tensioned stealth lace system and overmolded breathable mesh and you are left with a shoe to take on both all-comers, and all-corners.

Anthony gives a very detailed rundown of all the features/specs of these shoes in the video review, so I'll just leave my general impressions. I wear boots for a living, and these are some of the most comfortable and breathable out there. Icon has achieved the same that Oakley did for the troops with taking the sturdiness of a boot and blending it with the comfort of a sneaker.
These are a cross between a high-top sneaker and a short boot. Part of the sides are a thick mesh, which permits adequate ventilation without compromising the protection of your foot in an accident. They are heavier than a sneaker due to the steel shank, but lighter than a full boot by far. I walk several miles a day in these with ankle socks and wear them at work with nothing to complain about.
I read that they run narrow, so I bought a half-size up from what I normally wear in a shoe - they are still a little snug width wise, but not uncomfortably so. I wanted a pair of motorcycle shoes/boots that were slim and low-profile enough to not look clunky and odd with a nicer pair of jeans. These are perfect for those who would like a pair of boots with all the features and protection of a motorcycle boot plus the casual, non-motorcycle, style that can be worn with any pair of jeans in any setting.
Yes, I recommend this product.
