I was looking at this boots 101$ on sale. Just for street riding.

Any suggestions?

Interesting looking. They look like wannabe ski boots.

I'm still not sold on how well Icon gear works.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

The look like they offer some good protection. Is that nylon though?

Is that boot NESBA legal? I'm thinking about not wearing motocross boots to trackdays anymore.

I think Cam may have just bought and returned those, not positive but i think that's what they were...i believe he had mentioned they may be a little thick in the toe for good shifter feel.

Hey those boots look familiar They feel good and all that..but too thick to get under the gear shift of my bike no matter WHAT I tried. I returned them and got A* Ridge boots which were much easier than the Icons.
