Comment: These boots wear good and look great. I ordered the black ones and am planning on ordering a pair of the brown ones also. They offer excellent protection for your lower legs and feet. They run true to size. They do require breaking in as they are stiff when you first put them on. The shopping was fast.
Icon has given this boot a unique yet iconic style making it fit nicely in
their 1000 line and has somehow done this for under $250. The Elsinore is a
vintage MX style boot that has been up-dated with modern features and materials
that make it ideal for use on the street.

Elsinore boot is packed with features like a top grain leather upper and a heat
pressed leather shifter pad to protect the top of your boot from wear. A heat
pressed leather shin plate protects your shins from pointy footpegs and other
On one side, the Elsinore has five straps with alloy buckles. The straps are
adjustable to three positions and accompany the double yellow stitching to add
to the vintage MX style.On the other side is the full length zippered side entry
that makes the boot incredibly easy to get on and off. The zipper has a lightly
padded, narrow flap on the inside that will protect your ankle bone from
rubbing.The back has a perforated leather panel to add ventilation, acordion
style leather panel for flexibility, and a stamped metal heel plate. This heel
plate will protects your heel from impact and prevents you from wearing through
the heel of your boot in the event of a slide.
The Elsinore has a street style, non slip, oil resistant sole that is made using
Goodyear welt construction. This process adds water resistance to the seam and
allows the boot to be resoled, giving it a very long life.
The Elsinore is not completely waterproof. It is water-resistant, though, and
there is a gusset on the strap side of the boot to help water from freely
entering through this gap. The liner is a made of a mesh material that will wick
sweat away from your feet keeping them comfortable in most types of weather.
