Icon Women's Sacred Low Boots The Sacred low boot is a culmination of our painstaking approach to minimalist motorcycling footwear. The reduction of elements until only the bare essentials remain. The flat bottom unit provide a stable platform when astride the bike, but incorporates a svelte silhouette for maximum impact when off. Top grain leather uppers are constructed with a minimum of pattern lines adding to both comfort and a visual elegance. The integrated alloy heel plate provides increased coverage while alerting casual observers to your two-wheeled predilection. The Icon Sacred Low Boot needs none but delivers all. 6 top grain leather upper Low profile Icon outsole Custom molded metal heel plate Axialmetric steel shank Molded rubber shifter nubs YKK autolock zippers

Boots are super cute and stylish. I would buy these even if they didn't have the utility of being moto boots. YES, they are that cute. Downside is they come out of the box stiff at my ankles, so they need to be broken in. And the leather is not shiny leather like I thought they would be. And I don't have as much ankle protection as some of my other boots. But still they look so great, I don't care. I think I need to buy the tall boots now after picking up the short ones!

Very well made product with waterproof and helmet-carrying utility. Only one star off because I wish the interior pockets for keys and accessories were better organized. Overall I really like this backpack - carries a lot for the appearance of being small. I would buy again or buy as a gift.

I got the bubblegum pink with clear lens. They are so far good goggles and work as needed. But the strap is starting to show wear early. I'm a bit disappointed, as I've only had them one week. And got better wear from my other goggles. Recommended in general, but I'd probably order something with a different strap next time. Not really a fan.

Replaced the stock tires on my Grom, after some scary moments sliding in the rain. These work well in the rain and seem durable. I'm really surprised at how I'm having trouble breaking into them compared to other tires. It looks like they will last a long time.

I really like the fox branding and design. I wish the shirt came a little looser. Compared to men's shirts this is much tighter. It will be impossible for me to wear armor underneath, as it fits like a running shirt. I ordered a large per the size chart and I'm not busty. It might be hard to fit for curvier women.

Fits true to size and very stylish. I like the rubberized raised section on the pants at thigh, which seems slightly protective. Very comfortable and high quality pants.

Comfortable helmet. Good air flow without being drafty on the interior. The lining is plush without being too soft. I like the graphics and feel that it's safe with DOT/ECE/SNELL ratings. I would buy this brand again.

I've had these for 3 years, wearing them about 2/3 of the year for commuting. Finally one of the zippers broke or got worn out at the knee. But considering the amount of use I've given them, I think it's pretty good.
On the plus side these pants are very versatile, warm or cool depending on what you want, with customize-able fit at knees.
On the negative side, they aren't that fashionable. It can be rather frustrating to have to keep opening up the velcro sections to get at zippers on the legs. If these came more tailored to a specific purpose, without the number of removable liners, less velcro etc. it would be a bit easier. I wish the liners zipped into the legs along the opening instead of having a 2 tab connection at the bottom. Also wish these were more fitted at the ankles.

I picked up these gloves because I've had good history with Alpinestars and I wanted better protection. I like the 3-4 finger bridge (pinkie protection). I was worried it would make it hard to ride with the fingers connected, but I don't even think about it. Also the gloves are very soft, softer I think than SP series. I'm not sure about durability considering how they feel softer than SP - but I'm very happy with protection, feel, etc. And I like that these are classed as race gloves so I can use them if I ever want to go to track. I haven't been able to feel any air flow though these, so they work well as a fall-winter-spring glove for temperate climates like California. Wearing these in summer would be a little rough depending.
