Great All Around Boot
I've put around 12 thousand miles on these boots and so far I love them. These are 100% waterproof and have never failed me in the worst rain. They breathe really well, more so than any other boot I have tried making them great for summers here in NE. I will be using them into the winter with a thicker sock and insole heaters and so far they have been just fine in cold temps (30's and below). Really comfortable, just wear a long sock otherwise the air mesh material can be a bit scratchy.

My one gripe on these would be protection, I had a small rock hit the toecap of the boot at highway speeds and my toe was pretty sore for a while after that. The protection on these is minimal, but they are comfortable to walk around in all day so pick and choose what is important.

I would highly recommend these to any sport tourers/ all year riders in a heartbeat. (I am a 9.5-10 US size and Size 43 fits perfect)

Tall footbed, breathes well -- but minimal protection
As others have mentioned, there's a lot of "height" inside this boot, leaving a fair amount of airspace between the top of my foot and where the "tongue" would be if this were a shoe -- advantage being good ventilation and great comfort. But I do worry that in a crash, all this extra room -- coupled with the boot's extreme flexibility -- would allow my foot to twist and break.

There is no arch support, so factor in the cost of aftermarket insoles if your feet aren't extremely flat.

And all that extra height in the foot area means that you might have to adjust your shifter position to get the boot under your shifter.

Plus, there is near-zero ankle protection. Perhaps in a low-speed slide, the mesh and rubber accents would keep the skin on your bones. But if any part of the bike impacts the boot in a low-side, the probability of shattered bones seems high.

Moreover, I disagree with the reviewers who say the boot fits wide. I have three pairs of SIDI boots (42 and 43), and the Air Tech (43) is definitely more restricted in width in the mid-foot region directly behind the toes. The Air Tech is also much pointier at the toe, and therefore significantly longer than any of my SIDIs.

With all that said, these boots are indeed very comfortable, and I can wear them hours at a time -- even off-bike -- without any hot spots or discomfort.

very good hot weather boot
Fits true to size. I wear a 10-10.5 normally, bought the 44 and it is just right. Is not tight, yet not excessively loose. There is a little bit of play, but I think that helps with the ventilation and I think it will work well with a thicker sock in colder temperatures. It feels slightly wider in the toe box which works well for my foot. The zipper and velcro do a good job of keeping the boot snug to the leg, tho it is a little loose at the top around my calf. I could probably snug it up more with the velcro, but I like it slightly loose to help with the air flow.

It is a nice subdued external design. Its not overly flashy, decent enough that you can walk around with it under your pant legs and not have people staring at your feet.

It is a boot and the toe box is a bit larger than a shoe so it does take a bit extra flex of the foot to get under the shifter, but its not uncomfortably bad. The shift pad is plenty big to cover where it needs to be covered. No you are not going to feel the shifter like you would in a pair of tennis shoes, but Ill take the slightly less feel for the vastly improved protection.

The boot is very comfortable both on and off the bike. I walked around in it at the office and it was comfortable enough. If I am going to be walking around for a few hours, I would not keep them on, but they work well enough around the office or around town while riding. The sole has great traction, I have not yet put my foot down and felt anything other than a solid grip both on dry and wet pavement.

I have gotten caught in the rain a few times and feet stayed perfectly dry. The exterior mesh isn't such that you get a significant breeze on your foot, but it does allow enough air movement to keep your foot decently cool when its in the 90s yet the goretex is quite able to keep you dry during rain showers. I was expecting more air flow, but what it has works surprisingly well. My feet have not yet felt hot nor come out wet/sweaty. Unless of course I am stuck in a bad traffic jam, then there just isnt much to be done about that, but its not for lack of trying on the boots part.

My only complaint about the boot was the fact that there was a large gumball sized blob of some kind of opaque yellowish plasticy-rubbery compound stuck in the mash on the upper inside of the calf one of the boots. Had to take scissors and an xacto to get it off, and there is still some on the mesh that I cant remove without cutting the mesh. Not sure what it was or where it was from, and I can still feel it rubbing and scratching my calf now and then, but it wasn't enough for me to want to deal with sending it back. Pic of it included.

Over-all great hot weather water proof boot, definitely recommend. Will post more comments when I see how it does in cold weather, but that will not be for a few months.

TCX Air does what it says - allows air movement
I purchased my first pair of TCX Air boots in 2011. At the time, I was wearing Tourmaster Solution (1st gen). I can't speak for the current Solution 2.0 variety, but the 1st gen Solutions were hot in warm weather and sweaty in cold weather. They were comfortable on and off the bike, and seemed to offer decent protection for the price. The Solutions are a low-cost 'value' boot that works.

You can literally feel the air moving through the TCX Air boots (even on a well shielded R1150RT).

When the wife learned to ride in 2011, we began sharing abundant adventures and more miles. Since 2011, we've been riding 10k-15k miles each year, and I'm still wearing those five year-old TCX Air's without issue. While our bikes have changed, the boots have been the same all these years. We've been across the Upper Peninsula, to the Tail of the Dragon every year, down the BRP (several times), up Skyline Drive, to Bar Harbor Maine, and on nearly every 'named' road throughout OH, VA, WV, TN, NC, GA. They've been to the 16k ft. top of Mt. Evans in CO then hiked on to the summit, to the top of Mt.Washington auto road, hiked around Barber Vintage MC days (several years), and even did Total Control and Cali Superbike classes with these boots. They are comfortable for riding and hiking, durable, and look good too.

In moderate to warm weather, the TCX Air is a no-brain'er. But it may be surprising just how great they are in cold weather too. Non-ventilated boots get sweaty in all weather and once that happens, your feet are cold no matter what. The air flowing through these keeps your feet from sweating; thereby, keeping them dry and warm - despite cold air blowing through. Also, they are Gortex water proof - never have they leaked on me.

I like them so much that when I saw the closeout pricing, I bought an extra pair (TCX is price-controlled BTW). Opened the box when they arrived, and wow are they stiff! I didn't realize just how worn my pair had become - maybe its time for a new pair after all.

In summary, someone will have a hard time persuading me to buy a different boot (even within the TCX brand). It would need free-flowing mesh, decent protection, along with waterproof Gortex, wide toe box, comfort off the bike, and look good too. I'd imagine that the new version will be very similar - they look about the same, and I'd expect them to perform similarly. The one negative is the level of protection and support they offer. These are 'touring' type boots. They are not intended for racing (sliders, advanced joint and ligament protection, etc), nor do they offer the stability necessary for off-roading adventures. Maybe the newer model addresses these shortcomings?

Great boot/great fit/good price
I bought these just before a 3000 mile round trip from MA to TN. I expected lots of rain and got it. The boots kept my feet dry throughout all kinds of monsoon weather. I was worried about the fit, but the worry was uncalled for. the boots fit perfectly from day one. The ventilation was superb. I would highly recommend this boot for a summer boot.

a very nice and comfterble boot
my feet never sweat even after a full day of wearing these boots. they are water proof but riding in the winter with them is a bit too cold.

a good all weather boot with nice fit, easy to put on and comfortable. i wear them all day in the office. they are not sneakers comfortable but as long as no long walking/standing is involved they are very nice.

the only con is the price but you do get your money's worth!
also take notice: I usually wear A size 44-45 shoe. but i have the size 43 TCX and they fit me perfectly.

Nice boot
These boots are very easy to put on and take off. The zipper works easily and the boot is adjustable around the calf. They fit nicely under my normal cut jeans.

I consistently wear a size 8 shoe so ordered the 41. It was too big. I ordered the 40 and it's a good fit - a little loose. Like another reviewer I added an insole to tighten it up a little more. My ST1300 blows out a lot of heat on my feet but if I put my feet out at the edge of the pegs to pick up some wind, I get some air flow to cool down in hot weather. Now that I've read the other review, I'm wondering if my insole is limiting the air flow. I am cold-blooded but at 45 degrees my feet were fine.

The most surprising feature is the glue-like sole. I've never felt so sure putting my foot down.

I've worn them for several hours going to dinner and walking around. They are very comfortable.

I'd buy them again!

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.

I have this same pair now. Bought them March 2008. I put 50k miles on my first bike with them and I'm at 17k miles with my new bike. Not to mention the countless miles that I've walked in them. Being that I live in Tampa FL, it rains A LOT, and these boots have never failed. They are very comfortable to walk in and are just a durable boot. As long as they continue to make them, I'll keep buying them. Seeing how good of use I got from my first pair, I expect the same from the new ones.

The breathability will be a benefit during warm Colorado summers. The gore tex will provide protection from the monsoon rains. Finally, the tall upper will provide some shin protection.
Noogie on Nov 11, 2015
I bought these in Aug for a trip in Oct, tried them on around the hose and LOVED the feel, very comfortable. Unfortunately I did not get a chance to wear them until my trip to the Smoky mountains. It rained 5 of the 7 days (still the best riding I have ever done!!) on day 2 of the monsoon the right boot started leaking in the toe box, day 3 the left started leaking and the liner started to come out. REVZILLA took care of everything and replaced them. waiting for the new ones...

Conrado S on Mar 18, 2014
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.

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 ?
sourjya g on Apr 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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
Great boots this summer in Texas, riding to Colorado next week...how are they in the "cold"?
A shopper on Sep 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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
Would these look good on a FZ-09?
Mostly for commuting.
A shopper on Nov 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The TCX Air Tech is a fine good looking boot. I've had now for two summers. What I like most is that it is comfortable with good ventilation. I can ride it all day and it's flexible to walk on, no problem. It's a great warm/hot weather climate boot! Keep in mind, as far as sizing goes, it runs a little bit on the wide size. At least for me. It definitely is a good quality boot for the money. I do recomend it!
Is this a good walk around all day kind of boot? Or is it too stiff?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: These boots, which i have owned for two seasons, work extremely well off the bike just walking around. I have a narrow foot and they are comfortable, flexible and do not boil my feet. The top layer breathes which also lets in/out air. While I am on my bike (a BMW 1150RT) I will stick my feet out beyond the fairing to catch the air. When we stop for a break, I never even think about these being on.
What is the height of this boot?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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?

BEST ANSWER: 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.
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?
A shopper on Feb 26, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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).

I am looking for a pair of summer riding boots for both myself and my wife. I see the size chart has the Euro conversion for women's sizes, but how is the fit on women. My wife wears about a 8-8 1/2 in shoes, so does the conversion seem to be pretty close?
A shopper on Jan 6, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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.
How high are these boots? I have big calf's and have trouble with the fit of taller boots. How about these boots for fit?
A shopper on Oct 12, 2011
BEST ANSWER: This boot is a touring cut and comes up to the calf. We measured a 9/43 at 9" on the inside from the heel to the top of the boot.
