Icon El Bajo 2 CE Boot

El Bajo – literally translated it means ‘The Short One.’ Short perhaps in overall height, but never in performance or steez. Built on the same sole bottom unit as it’s five-buckle Elsinore brother. El Bajo CE provides all the OG moto-presence but in a reduced two-buckle silhouette.

Sizing Information

My impression was that this boot is a “D” or medium width and the length is generally true to the stated size. A rugged boot like this is sometimes overly roomy where your foot might “rattle around” inside, but I thought these boots fit very well. The boot has two adjustment straps on the side, but in a short boot like this, those become more cosmetic than anything. The side zipper allows for easy-on/easy-off.

Our Two Cents

The original Icon 1000 El Bajo boot debuted in 2012 and was a great boot. This updated CE Icon El Bajo 2 boot is nearly identical with a few updates.

The El Bajo 2 (the short) is a hiker height version of the similarly styled Elsinore 2 (see link below). This boot offers a heck of a lot of unique style in a package that also has a lot of credibility as a protective boot. These boots are heavy duty and well made. The overall impression is that of a sturdy construction boot (the welting and sole construction remind me of Red Wings). The boots have some really cool looking buckles on the outside of the foot and they are updated from the previous style. The original had a round peg that went through the strap with nothing really holding it in place. This version has a square peg with a lip that seats over the strap and holds it in place. They are largely cosmetic, but they are sharp and are built very sturdily and allow you to adjust the fit of the boot. The side zipper allows you to get in and out of the boots with ease (you don’t have to mess with the buckles after the first time thank goodness). The boots have a very sturdy toe box and counter around the heel… both are reinforced to withstand impact. And there are D3O protectors built in on either side of the ankle. The insides are soft and cushy. A short hiker style like this will take some break in around the ankle. The stiffness of the boot will rub the top edge into your ankle area for a while, and while it is padded, it is still gonna take some time to break in. The overall stiffness of the sole is, well, VERY stiff. Standing on pegs and such shouldn’t phase these babies a bit.
