Stuff That Works: Icon Super Duty 4 Motorcyle Boots
I know the folks at Icon are not really after those of us old enough to know the lyric: "These boots are made for walkin'", but that was the first thing that came in my head when I sat down to right this.
|I don't always want to wear my Combat Lites from Aerostich.|
Okay - Icon does not market the Super Duty 4 as a hiking boot, but they almost could.
I needed some boots to commute to work in. While I appreciate the extra protection my big boots, Combat Lites from Aerostich, provide - I do not always want to wear those big beauties on my 12 mile ride to work.
FYI- I paid full price for these boots at a local dealership (see bottom).
Anyway - I LOVE these boots. The fit is great and I feel they offer a good deal of protection to my feet with the steel shank, built in ankle protection, and the stabilizer strap. Said strap reminds me of downhill ski boots (my Combat Lites have them as well) and they really make your feet feel buckled in. I do not want to imagine a situation where enough force could be generated to take these boots off my feet once they are securely laced and fastened.
To sum it up - if you are looking for some short boots, I would encourage you to stop in to your local dealer and try on a pair of the Icon Super Duty 4 on your dogs.
A Shout Out to Fox Powersports
I was so impressed with his service that I WANTED to spend more money. I started looking around for something I needed when I spied the boots. Sorry to admit I did not get his name (I did give him a generous tip), but when customer service seems to be lacking in so many places these days, it is worth a mention and recommendation for you to visit this dealership if you live or ride in the Grand Rapids area.
