A vintage motocross-inspired street boot, the Icon 1000 Elsinore Boots combine old-school looks and heavy-duty construction in a unique boot meant for the everyday rider. A side zipper makes putting the Elsinore on and taking it off a cinch while five cast-metal buckles make sure they wear snug. Internal ankle protection also makes sure the Elsinore has enough protection to get you through everything you encounter. What more do you need?
Why We Like It: The Elsinore looks like a cross between something you’d see on a WWII paratrooper and something you’d see on the track in the early days of motocross. That’s not your average look for a street boot. The stitching is what really ties the look of these boots together and the heavy-duty construction lets you know your feet are protected. This boot may not have any technically innovative features but it has the essentials down.
Less Expensive Competitor: The V-Twin D-WP Boot by Dainese comes in at $229.95 and features classic styling and a waterproof interior.
You Should Also Check Out: The $329.95 Alpinestars Supervictory Boots are also vintage moto-inspired and come with some extra features you won’t find on the Elsinore boots.
