I got a pair in the last drop and I personally really like the appearance and find them comfortable to wear. Unfortunately the adhesive used to hold the rubber sole to the leather sole really isn't holding up. I've probably worn them half a dozen times and both heels are starting to come off (just the ~3/16" thick rubber over the actual built-up heel portion.) Given the price-point I definitely expected better. Clearly you can't expect sewn construction at $150 a pair, but I also won't be surprised if they don't last the summer. And then I'll be "buying twice" and probably getting a pair of Alpinestars, Dainese, Stylmartin or Rev'it with a more known track-record. (and close to twice the price, but also a lot more protection.)
I did email motobailey when they started delaminating asking if they were resoleable and didn't get a response.
tldr: really like the fit and appearance, but I'm looking for a bit more in terms of quality and longevity.

Hi Tom, I apologize that I have not seen your email if you don't mind please resend it to motobaileys@gmail.com and I will pick it up. I also apologize for the heel issue. To let you know that is 100% covered under our warranty and I will send you out another pair today. I will also send you a tougher material heal to replace the others with and you will then have to pairs for riding for years to come. We used a ultra soft compound with little tread for the sole to get maximum traction on the street and we have seen about 3-5% of our heels have an issue, so we just replace them and offer a harder compound. Again I greatly apologize for the inconvenience, I will shoot you out another pair ASAP!

Hi Jose, the elsinores are awesome looking boots but they're a little bit more mad max meets extreme motocross/adv boot than I was looking for. I recently picked up a pair of stylmartin Indian boots in brown with red laces that I'm really happy with so far. Probably a little less protection than the elsinores but more aesthetically passable off the bike.

Hi there, thanks for the awesome reply. I apologize for not getting back to you sooner, I've been staying off of massdrop for the sake of my wallet and missed the notification. I'll forward my original email to you now, hopefully the offer dull stands since I really like the shoes aside from the problems I had with them. Tom
