The iD line – Weapons of Imperial Design
The Marchese Ikazuchi speedskating boot is an instrument of Empire - the foundation of your conquest, made to destroy your competition and install you in ultimate power. Based on ages-old Italian boot making traditions and the latest, dedicated technology, this is a production ice speed boot like no other.
When you’re standing at the top of the heap, all eyes are on you. Having command over your personal style is an important element of being a dominating Champion. With style comes confidence, which makes you more focused, effective and powerful. With the Marchese Ikazuchi in one of 9 Imperial colours, you’ll have it all, and look good doing it.
Crafted for competition at the highest levels of our sport, Marchese speedskating boots are the number one choice among many long track Olympic medalists in Nagano '98, Salt Lake City '02, Torino '06 and Vancouver '10, with 84 Olympic medals and counting. These boots are made for ice, not simply repackaged inline boots. It's the Italian expert cratfmanship that you must simply wear to feel and believe. Once you've felt the power of Roma, you'll know a new level and will never settle for inferiority from any other boot.
The Ikazuchi is made of superlight synthetic material for the outer, and a natural pig skin leather liner inside with a heat moldable foam interior and semi-rigid moldable tongue. With the right blend of stiffness and flexibility, combined with excellent moldability from ankle to toe, your confidence and control are assured.
World-class attention to detail, an unparalleled sense of elegance and style, and an uncompromising demand for excellence make the Ikazuchi a platform for greatness. The Art of Winning never looked so good. Manufactured in Italy by master boot maker Davide Mariani, based on the zero-defect design specifications of Paul Marchese, these boots were two years in development, and will make a life-time of difference in your form. Try them for yourself, today.

Price Value QualityGerriton 12/15/2017I tested the Bianco shoes and I must say that the shoes have a very nice fit. In addition, the shoes are light and also stiff. Something that really benefits my weaker ankles. In addition, I have had no problems with pressure points or similar issues. If I would have, the shoes can easily be molded to the foot. In short: a nice and stiffer speedskating shoe!
