These boots are definitely nice looking. I am skinny by nature though so I awas really surprised to have a hard time zipping it up on my ankle area. I had to return them because this winter I need to layer up and I can imagine the zipper not wanting to close at all. Yes they look great but they are very uncomfortable.
Icon Women's Sacred Leather Boot.
Some ladies prefer their boots on the taller side. Mid-calf height, providing extra leather coverage while keeping jaws dropping. If your game is moto mixed with sexy than look no further than the Sacred Talls. A flat sole provides sure-footedness while integrated alloy heel plates and shifter nubs provide requisite motorcycle functionality. Of course the leather covered shinplate is sure to evoke a gladiatorial sexiness that seems most appropriate when found on the ladies (sorry Maximus).
- Tall 12" top grain leather upper
- Low profile Icon outsole
- Axialmetric steel shank
- Padded shin panel
- Custom molded metal heel plate
- Molded rubber shifter nubs
- YKK autolock zippers

The Sacred is offered in a tall version, which we are going to look at now, and a low version as well. Be sure to check out our breakdown of the low version of the Sacred boot after this video.
The sacred is one of Icon's more subtly styled women's boots. It has a slim, slender shape and a minimalist look that makes this boot look sexy without being gaughty or over the top. It is made out of top grain cowhide leather and it is soft to the touch. This boot maintains the important features you look for in a riding boot despite it's soft, slender apearance. For example, Icon was able to retain the shifter interface nubs on top of the shoe but you can hardly see them.
As we move on to the side of the Sacred boot we see the side zipper type closure. This isn't just any zipper. In addition to the snap, here, that helps keep the zipper in place,
The zipper also has the YKK autolock feature. When the boot is zipped up, with the grip in the down position, the zipper is locked in position, if the zipper grip is up, it is unlocked. This helps prevent the zipper from creeping while walking or riding.
On the back of the boot there is a metallic polyurethane slider. If, for some reason, you decide to get off of your bike while it is still moving, This insert helps protect your heel from shock. This material slides easily on pavement as well, which not only helps keep the boot intact, it also helps to reduce tumbling.
Moving on to the other side, there are two buckle style adjustable straps. Although they add a little bit of support, they are more for form than function.
The sole of the boot is very low profile, with a wedge shape that has almost no shank. It has an ergonomic sole that is shaped specifically for a woman's foot. Women's feet are typically narrower than a man's and this sole reflects that. Inside of the sole has an axialmetric steel shank to give some added support and crash protection.
We had one of our lady riders try on th Sacred Tall boot.While she found the boot comfortable, she found the sizes to run a bit small. She is a typically a 9 ½ and while the boot she tried on was a 10, she found the boot was too tight. You want the boot to fit snuggly and securely but you don't want it cutting off your circulation.
the obvious mnoticeable differenc between the Sacred Leather and the Sacred Low is the added panel in the front that protects your shins. If you've ever had your foot slip off of your foot peg you know how painful that can be, this protective panel helps prevent that.
This boot is good for street riding when you want to combine function with style.
