The new Icon 1000 Prep Boot is a waterproof alternative to the well-known Elsinore Boot that’s quickly become popular with riders across a number of genres. The Prep Boot shares an obvious design language with the Elsinore but strips away some of the flair and adds full waterproofing to ensure it’s a full four season option for riders who saddle up no matter what the weatherman predicts.
Each boot is made from top grain leather and has an internal waterproof liner, an internal ankle plate, an axialmetric steel shank, a YKK zipper, a heat-pressed leather shifter panel, a heat-pressed molded leather shin plate and it’s all been tested and certified according to Standard EN 13634:2010.
