Icon Elsinore Boots The Icon 1000 Elsinore's 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. Features 12 top grain leather upper Goodyear welt construction Icon cast metal buckles Icon stamped metal heel plate Heat pressed leather shifter panel Heat pressed molded leather shin plate Internal ankle protection Axialmetric steel shank YKK Zippers

I bought these boots for a long trip, and have only just broken them in. They're pretty stiff to start with, especially the sole. The insole is pretty much useless, unfortunately, so I threw in a pair of Dr. Scholl's and my feet are much happier.
I like that they don't have a waterproof membrane. My foot doesn't get clammy. I've put a coat of sno-seal on them and they've been water tight in the few showers I've ridden in.
Overall, I'm very happy. True to size, comfy (with the new insole), substantial, protective. I had to adjust the shift lever on the VFR to feel comfortable shifting, but that's no biggie. Very nice boots.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is a wonderful helmet. I've always loved Shoei, but this one is just amazing. RevZilla has great service as well.
Highly recommended.

I wear a size 11, and these fit perfectly. They are BIG boots, though. I had to adjust my shift lever to feel comfortable shifting. It took awhile to get used to them, but once I did, they've been awesome.
They did take a bit to break in though. After about 400 miles of riding they're pretty comfortable to walk in.
I highly recommend these boots.
