Light & Comfortable The TCX Air Boot is light, comfortable, and roomy. The Boot performs as advertized. I would recommend this to anyone looking for comfort, style, and function. July 27, 2015
Great all around riding boots I ride a K1300GTL, so bend at the ankle is important due to riding position. I just put on 1300 miles over Memorial day weekend and got caught in the rain several times, absolutely no leakage. Loved the airflow, feet were very comfortable. I feel like they are a little loose fitting and may want thicker socks but length is good. Overall I'm very happy with the boot and would recommend them. June 1, 2015
Comfortable, functional I think these are a little boring-looking, but that's not the point! They feel like they will protect me well in a crash, with good malleolus coverage, though thankfully I can't attest to that for certain. And they are comfortable, allowing undistracted operation of the motorcycle. I ride to work in afternoon heat and home in midnight chill, and these keep me comfortable both ways. Haven't ridden in much wet weather yet. They also aren't bad to walk around in, though you obviously don't want to spend all day like that. (If for no other reason, to avoid stepping in anything! First day wearing these, riding home my left foot kept slipping off the footpeg. Found some sort of goo on it when I got home; after washing it off, problem solved!) They are very easy to get on and off, and fit well; the velcro allows adjustment for pants inside or outside, and the velcro tab on the zipper underneath the flap keeps it totally secure and out of the way. And the ease continues on the ride: good traction on footpegs, shifter, and brake pedal, while easy to slide forward and backward for normal operations. There is nothing fancy about these boots, but why should there be? They get the job done beautifully. May 28, 2015
Comfortable touring boot with good air flow My wife and I have had these boots for about 5 years and have found them to good touring boots. My feet get hot & sweaty very easily so, in addition to being waterproof, air movement was the key feature I needed. The XCR Gore-Tex and outer mesh do a good job with that and have kept our feet dry during rainy rides. However both pairs of boots started letting water through the front during our Alaska tour last summer. I cleaned & washed the boots recently and found dampness inside again. I've contacted Gore to seek warranty coverage and will be shipping both pairs in for their "testing process" and warranty resolution. Hopefully they'll verify our observations and authorize replacement boots of the same brand/model at no charge consistent with their lifetime guarantee. April 1, 2015
Great boots for the price Was needing some cool waterproof boots for our Texas summers. These boots have plenty of air flow through the mesh. I tried them out on a slightly cooler day (about 42 degrees) and my feet got rather chilly. So far in the few rain showers I've ridden my feet have stayed dry. The boots are surprisingly comfortable out of the box. I'm sure it will get better as they break in. They are also almost as light as my Air Jordans I wear normally for daily wear. Overall, very happy with the boots, especially at the price point. March 4, 2015
An excellent boot except when it's very hot This is my second time having these boots and I've been very happy with them both times. Living in Florida they are too hot for summer weather, but for winter and anywhere that is cool or cold I've found them great. They also breath well because of the Gortex. I would recommend them to anyone. December 22, 2014
Excellent Product Extremely comfortable... no break in required for me. I have slightly wide feet due to my mostly barefoot childhood days... so these fit well for those with the same condition. Styling is great and very easy to walk and wear off bike. Air flow is excellent and should be great during summer months. October 20, 2014
Cool dry feet This is my second pair of these boots. The first pair I purchased 10 years ago when they were being manufactured by Oxtar. I liked them so we'll that when in wore them out I didn't think twice about buying another pair. September 8, 2014

George F: I am on my second pair. Apr 7, 2015
Kirk G: I had a pair of Alpine Star touring boots that claimed to be waterproof. But they did not work. So far these have done very well. Multiple rides for hours in the rain and they have stayed dry. Comfortable as well. Mar 5, 2015
Peter S: Second pair. Wore out the first. Great for SoCal riding. Dec 15, 2014
Matt O: Wanted good touring boot with plenty of air movement. Had to be waterproof. Nov 26, 2014
Wayne B: My other TCX boots work great in cold weather but are like an oven in the summer. These work really well keeping you feet cool when the weather turns hot. Sep 27, 2014
H O: Original one wore out. Good fit, etc but new one does not flow air through like old one. Maybe it just needs to wear out first............ Sep 16, 2014
Jesse L: I've heard great things about TCX boots so I decided to spend the money and give them a try. I couldn't be happier with the fit and the weather protection. I've worn these while riding around 13,000 miles since I bought them and they've been fantastic. Sep 15, 2014
jean louis l: because some other brand do not provide size 40, I will have select something with higher spec and latest model but they start size 8. Sep 14, 2014
Roy W: Waterproof Breathable Boot. Aug 1, 2014
Jason B: Need a good air boot for hot Louisiana summers. Jun 28, 2014
Ronald V: I have been wearing a pair of Oxtar (TCX bought out Oxtar about 6 years ago) Air Tech Gore-Tex boots for the last 7 years. They're a bit down in the heels and they've started leaking water so it's time to replace them. Jun 10, 2014
JAMES K: replacing prior pair purchased in 2009 great boots for sport touring, easy to walk about in and proven water-tight. Jun 5, 2014
Regina S: Wanted a breathable, waterproof boot with a good fit and good look for touring/commuting and a price point around $200. They were a little more than I was hoping to pay but if they work as stated, they will be worth the investment. Jun 3, 2014
Conrado S: Needed very wide boots. Mar 18, 2014
Neo J: I was looking for an all-season footwear for Texas with sufficient protection built-in. I became wary of few reviewers saying these boots lack the necessary protection. I changed my mind and bought TCX Track instead, only to realize it was a step too far in direction of protection, in exchange for ankle articulation and ease of mobility. So I changed my mind 2nd time, going to ignore other negative reviews and give these boots a benefit of doubt. GTX w/Air Tech mesh should work great in Texas. Feb 14, 2014
Grant A: I saw these boots at our local M/C Show and they looked like the best of what I saw. I use a fairly light , flexible boot and it looks like these fit the bill! Feb 8, 2014
ben a: Needed waterproof boots that were wearable in the summer. These breathe, can feel a bit of wind, and have yet to let any water in after two years. They are not billed as winter boots, but I wear them in winter and while the airflow does get a bit cold, they work for my 30 minute commute.. Great traction, subdued styling works, and pant legs can go in or over them. Walking around is ok, but they are stiff even after two years. Oct 25, 2013
Larry D: Good reviews Sep 25, 2013
Peter A: Seemed like a good idea at the time Aug 27, 2013
sourjya g asked: Would it bend from above the ankle under crash situation. I mean would it be able to save a hyper extension of the Achilles. Would the toe be allowed to touch the chin and damage the Achilles in a crash ? Apr 23, 2015

Mohamed Aslam A: The boot gives basic protection I am not sure about hypertension. If you are looking at protection for the track I will suggest you go for tech 3 or better boots. These boots are good for street commutes and allow good airflow and are waterproof Apr 23, 2015
FABRIZZIO C: It looks and fell strong enought. I think not but it depends on the velocity and look of the crash. I love the boot. I will buy them again. just ask for a exact size of your feet. they are like one number bigger Apr 23, 2015

Tracy P: From the shin guard to the tip of the toe is pliable, so odds are it would bend. Not being able to bend would make these almost impossible to walk in for any length of time (think of wearing wooden shoes). These are not track boots, but more of a lightweight touring boot that is waterproof and offers some additional protections. Apr 23, 2015

I never used them until now, one size to large, I am base in Thailand so not worth to send back. I will consider something that hold above the ankle stronger in my next purchase.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Philip L: I'm away from my boots right now but I'd say 10/11" mid-calf boot. It's a great boot with good protection. The breathe ability is right amazing for it being a waterproof boot. I'm standing in my second pair of Sidi On Road boots. It's still cool out and I'm on my naked bike. When the heat is turned up, I switch over to the TCX's for the cooling effect.

All said, You can't go wrong with these boots.

Jason B: I don't know the exact height but do know it goes right above the typical sock line for standard socks. They are very stiff and will rub your leg while riding if you don't wear higher socks. Apr 5, 2015

A shopper asked: Great boots this summer in Texas, riding to Colorado next week...how are they in the "cold"? Sep 17, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Brent B: As points of reference: I like to have a long sleeved shirt if I go in a restaurant air-conditioned below 74°.
I'm traveling at interstate speeds, so the air blast is substantial, and makes for a powerful windchill.
On the Florida "winter" mornings that occasionally drop under 40°, I wear these Air Techs with light-weight wool-blend ski socks. On those mornings, my winter gloves are barely adequate (despite handguards), my thighs and lower torso are uncomfortably cold, but the slight flow of air into the TCX Air Techs is no discomfort at all.
I do feel a cooling effect when the exterior is damp after a rain and evaporative cooling begins to dry them, but I've only experienced that in warm weather. I can't speak to whether this would happen in cold temperatures.
In short, I have felt no need for a winter boot. YMMV

Vincent N: I live in Upstate NY and wear them year round from temps ranging from 20F to 90+F. I've always found them comfortable unless it's super cold (below freezing). You can always wear an extra pair of wool socks. Sep 17, 2014

Mohamed Aslam A: These boots a good for summer, but not in very cold weather, they let air in so they are not ideal for very cold weather. I live in southern part of india were the weather doesn't fall below 25C . Sep 17, 2014
Steve W: Always depends on how cold. I've been comfortable into high 30's with a pair of smart wool socks. I also ride a BMW RT with a fair amount of wind and rain protection for my feet Sep 17, 2014

A shopper asked: I wear a size 9 1/2 on my Bates Goretex 9-inch boots, as well as for my Wolverine 1000 mile boots. Both recommend a half size down for their boots. I wear a size 10 for my Wolverine Red Tooth 6-inch midshoe, which is recommended a half size up because of the cramped safety toe. The sizing chart lists size 43 as a 9 equivalent and a 44 as a 10 with nothing in between. I typically use aftermarket insoles for extra cushioning(one orthotic insole, and a flat EVA foam piece underneath that, so 2 layers), and right now my Bates boots are pretty damned snug. Should I go with the 9, or take a chance with the 10 and maybe I can stick extra insoles underneath to make it meet the size? May 20, 2014

edward b: I also found that these boots didn't come in a size that directly corresponded with my shoe size, so I bought the size that was larger than my shoe size (as opposed to the size that was smaller) and added an insole to make up the difference. I used one of those Doctor Scholl's gell inserts, available at many pharmacy's. It worked very well.

I'm on my second pair of these boots. The first had well over 100K miles on them. Always comfortable, waterproof and breathe pretty well. The only reason I replaced the first pair was that the sole was worn out. I hope they are still available when I need my next pair.

Richard B: Hard to say, the euro sizes are for foot volume, not just length. The boots seem to be very close to actual size. I think a half size difference is about 1/4 inch in length. I'd go with the 10. Also check out revzilla's return policy, I think its not an issue. These would have free shipping, you would need to pay for return shipping is all. If you do return, do not ride with them, just try them on. My $.02. May 21, 2014

Francis B: Hi I wear a 10 1/2 in most shoes/boots and sneakers. I also have Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots and get them in size 10 (I own three pair) and they fit great. I order size 45 in the European sizing system. For me the one size down to the 44 is too tight. Using this idea I think the 44 might be the way to go.

Hope that helps.

Kirk G: I would say that these boots are just a bit bigger than the size indicated. I wear a 9 and these are just a bit bigger, but I have not added any inserts. I have worn my boots with heavier socks in the colder days and they fit and worked excellent. I have been very pleased with the comfort of these boots. May 20, 2014

A shopper asked: What's the difference between this and the TCX Five-plus in terms of breathability and ventilation? Which of these two boots would you recommend if this was the key consideration? Feb 26, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Goldwing1: I do not know about the TCX Five-plus specifically. I do wear TCX Air-Tech in the summer and love those. The Air-Techs are ventilated. The Alpinestars are breathable, but not ventilated. Don't confuse those two. Breathable means that your feet won't feel stiffled and sweaty on a hot day. But you're not going to feel air movement under any conditions. I don't know what your use is, but if you're looking for a summer boot the A-stars Supertechs are too heavy. They're okay up to the mid 80s, but beyond that you want something like the Air-Techs (by the way, the Air-Techs are waterproof too, so I can't really see needing anything else in a summer boot - I highly recommend those). Apr 1, 2012

Davide D: I have a pair of TCX Five-plus. They are a solid leather boot with no ventilation. They are also goretex so they breathe and allow sweat to evaporate to an extent, but they will not let any air in.

I rode with my TCX Five-plus in 100F+ weather and by the end of the day my feet were sweaty and smelled like a vinegar factory. The five-plus are a great winter boot and have amazing waterproofing, I had to unload my bike from a truck while standing in a torrent and my feet stayed dry, but they do not work as a summer boot.

I am planning to get a pair of TCX Air Tech to be the summer counterpart to my fiveplus.

RevZilla: TCX Air Tech Gore-Tex Boots offers a higher ventilation than the TCX X-Five Plus Gore-Tex Boots thanks to its Gore-Tex membrane combined with its breathable AIR TECH material.
If ventilation would be the key criteria, we would recommend the TCX Air Tech Gore-Tex Boots.

JAMES K: Yes. However. depending on the configuration of your bike height your regular size inseam may not cover the top of the boots. I simply wear jeans with a 2 inch longer inseam when I wear these boots. These are the best boots I've had for rain riding in the past 30 years, I encourage you to try them. Apr 16, 2015

Gomuchfaster: If you use the mondo point sizing, you can probably find a mondopoint size in another pair of her shoes to make sure you're getting the right size. The thing about mondopoint is that it generally doesn't have the size "drift" that we tend to get in US sizes. If she has any european footwear (ski boots even) there will be a MP size you can use.
