Inspired by classic motocross boots, the Elsinore asks its shorter competitors if they've brought enough skin to the fight. 12 inches of top grain leather upper bets they didn't. And this isn't the type of fight for which you show up unprepared. The Elsinore's four strap alloy buckle chassis, stamped metal heel plate, and internal steel shank combine for a serious dose of moto-x homage. The traditional Goodyear welt construction mates the Icon street specific sole to the magnificent leather upper. A zippered medial entry zipper, borrowed from Paratrooper jump boots, is the only luxury the Elsinore will allow itself. A modern relic from an era when men were iron and tanks were steel, the Elsinore, old-school MX reinterpreted for the urban sprawl.
