I recently took an 8 day, 7 State, 3,000-mile motorcycle trip on my Harley-Davidson while wearing and riding with the Icon Patrol 2 Boots. I am always searching for & testing progressive motorcycle riding gear. I'm not very traditional and know there are way better things to ride a Harley in rather than heavy bulky leather coats, chaps, and big clunky biker boots. I like gear that is protective, functional, and often works on and off the bike. (see review video below)
The Icon Patrol 2 Boots met my standards and I really enjoyed wearing them during this motorcycle trip. When you first look them over you can tell they are built well and quality. These shoes/boots offer much riding protection, yet are comfortable and stylish. They come on an off very easy with the BOA lacing system. With the BOA lacing system, classic laces are replaced by stainless steel wires, connected to a turning knob. You can tighten or loosen these shoes to just the right feel.

During my motorcycle trip, it rained at times and it was very nice not to have to worry or pull over as the Icon Patrol 2 boots are waterproof! I could just ride on in conjunction with my other progressive riding gear.
I also walked around town every evening after riding all day for dinner and entertainment wearing these shoes/boots. I got off my motorcycle and hiked trails at Zion National Forest and at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and these Icon Patrol 2 Boots worked great for that too! That's what I'm talking about when I say I like motorcycle shoes/boots that work for many different things. Space is limited when packing for motorcycle trips, so multi-purpose shoes/boots such as the Icon Patrol 2 Boots work great. On a stiffness scale of 1-10, 10 being the stiffest, I'd rate these at a 6 and they break in easily and nicely. They are very comfortable.
I wore the Icon Patrol 2 Boots in temperatures ranging from 45 degrees to 100+ degrees and they handled it well. They could be worn in much colder temps without a problem. Of course, in 100 degree temps your feet can get warm but that is understood and the same thing would happen in any boots. My feet did not get any warmer in the Icon Patrol 2 boots than in any other motorcycle riding shoe/boot I've tested thus far.
Note/Sizing: When ordering the Icon Patrol 2 Boots, order one size larger than you wear as they run small. I am a 9.5 mens and I ordered a 10.5 and they fit perfectly.
Overall, I love the protection, look, the functionality of the Icon Patrol 2 Boots. They are very comfortable and work both on and off the motorcycle. I highly recommend them for local or cross-country motorcycle riding!
When you've had enough of the great indoors and feel the need to check the perimeters of your soul, take the Icon Patrol 2 Boots with you. Waterproof leather upper and easy on/easy off BOA laces keep you dry and comfortable.
