TCX Jupiter EVO Gore-Tex Boots
GoreTex all the way
Cheaped out on some water proof gloves that weren't GoreTex and not as nice. Spend the money and get GoreTex. It's worth it. My feet don't sweat in 98 degree weather. Have gone thru some Florida down pours and my feet were absolutely dry.

Best low boot out there - not as good as their old one though
Somewhat sad to say, these boots don't quite live up to the longevity of their predecessor the Jupiter 2. I used my Jupiter 2's for many many years and aside from a slowly wearing sole they withstood lots of abuse (even a crash). These seem pretty solid still, the insole is terrible though, my old ones never had a problem even hiking in them, these I've ridden 6000 miles in them and the insoles are all torn up (how does that even happen? who knows.) Apart from the flimsy insoles they are almost identical to the jupiter 2s. Added perk to the new ones are the ankle bone protectors, definitely appreciate those.
Overall, if Jupiter 2's still existed I'd get those, but these are almost as good and a little more protective. Time will tell if they can hold up as many years as my last pair, so far so good. No signs of wear (aside from insoles) in the 6000 miles since i got them, rode in a torrential downpour and my feet stayed dry. They seem to breathe quite well, the new venting on them works like a charm.

Good protection for a good price
I have owned the TCX Jupiter EVO Gore-Tex Boots for several weeks now and have put on about 500 miles while wearing the boot. The boots are well made and have great styling. They sort of remind me of a cross between a high-top basketball shoe and euro driving shoe. The protection feels like it's in the right places and the shoes are relatively comfortable - I wear them to work but sit at a desk most of the day - I would think twice before wearing them to an event that requires a lot of walking. My one complaint is that the shift pad doesn't go up high enough so my shift lever rubs the edge of the pad instead of the center of - probably varies from bike to bike though. Overall a good boot for your money and I would likely make the same purchase again.

Great Short Boot
This boot has everything I was looking for. I typically wear an 8.5 shoe and a 9 nike sneaker. That being said I also take a 42 in an Alpine Star SMX boot. I first tried a 42 in the Jupiter Evo's but was just too large so I exchanged it, no hassle of course, for a 41. They are perfect. Very comfortable and just feel right in every way. They are very well made, have great support and protection on top of the fact they are also Gore-Tex. Can't ask for a better short boot for hot weather or any weather riding. I would highly recommend these boots. Price is great for what you get.

I Recomend this product if you are looking for good airflow also.
i feel more confident while wearing these shoes. Wanted more grip and comfort than my work boots and a little protection around the ankle. I wear size 10.5 USA sneaker or boot and a c wide. I ordered a size 45 which is just a tad bit longer than my foot. Better a tad too long than a tad too short.

Great shoe for the price
I love these shoes so far. I wear a 10.5-11.0 depending on the shoe manufacturer and the 45 fits perfect. They were a bit stiff at first, but I wore them to work a couple of days and they broke in easily. Several compliments on my new shoes, but not one person knew they were motorcycle shoes and were surprised when I told them. Now for the important part, riding. I ride a BMW K1200LT and found theses shoes to be a nice fit. Easy to find foot controls as opposed to some of the actual riding boots I have. In 90 degree plus weather the shoes had decent airflow for a waterproof boot, no sweating. And they are comfortable for some walking once you arrive. I would recommend wearing moisture wicking socks though due to the Gore-Tex membrane. Overall a great product in the sub-$200 category. I haven't tested the waterproof aspect yet, thankfully. Big bonus, I used $30 Zilla cash and saved some bucks.

Great Riding Boot
Really like this boot for style, fit and comfort. What I like most is the stiffness of the sole. At first I wasn't to sure I would like that but when it comes to supporting my FJR1300 at a stop they work much better than my old boots that weren't really made for motorcycle riding. The soles also help with better, easier downshifting. Also like the Gore-Tex feature in the 85 plus weather but haven't tried it in the rain yet. Would like more airflow but wouldn't want to give up any protection from rain.

Italian Style and Gore Tex
Bought these boots based on Anthony's video review. I wore these boots for a week in California at temps between 50 and 108 and they performed well. My feet were hot in 108 temps, but what boot would keep you cool at that temp??!! I wore them on and off the moto for 10 hours each day and they did not kill my feet. Great boots.
