If looking for adventure boot, consider this one also
Good grip in soft surfaces, good protection although just OK ankle protection for offroading. Only complaint is if you wear them under your pants adventure style, the material at the top will grind into your skin, so you'll need tall socks or wear them outside all the time.

Comfortable, great protection
True to size, I wear a 10 US And I ordered that. Perfect. Comfort: Great so far. They don't require much for break in. My shifter foot is a bit stiff, but after a short afternoon ride, I feel is loosening up nicely. After wearing them around the house, before the snow melted, and the bike was out, I noticed that they are warm, very warm. If you need a boot to breathe, these probably aren't it. When it gets warm out, I'll try a pair of long Goretex socks, over the top to wick out perspiration.
Over the pants or under, that is the question. My pants went over nicely, but not the liners. I haven't tried jeans yet.
Good boots, happy so far.

excellent dual sport / adv boot
This is an excellent dual sport / adv boot for the sub $250 price point.
- protection at shin and ankle
- short break in period
- temp (so far great up to 85F, have not tested above... yet)
- comfort easy to walk in
- low toe box height (easy to get toe under shifter)
- rigid sole for support standing on pegs
- sole provides great off-road traction
- waterproof (have not tested yet)
- suede is easy to clean
- suede hides scuffs and scraps
- ankle could be offer more support, too much volume
- can't get ankle strap tight enough
- sole could be slightly stiffer (I hope it doesn't break-in any more)

Fits american wide feet
I wear a 4E. It fits out of the box. Good flex too. Will update after trips.

This boot has great protection. I wear a size 10 and 1/2 in most shoes and the size 10 fits perfectly. I will say the boot does require breaking in because the first few times I wore them they didn't flex at the ankle much which inhibited shifting my sport bike. I know they are technically not for a sport bike rider but I wanted a tall boot with lots of protection that still could be worn under jeans and look like a work boot. Overall, I could not be happier with these boots but you have to be patient breaking them in as I wore them for 3 days at Daytona Bike Week before they started feeling totally comfortable. For the price I couldn't beat the protection so dealing with the break in is worth it in my opinion. Also, Revzilla staff answered all my questions about sizing and the boot qualities before the purchase and they were spot on accurate and quick to respond. The shipping was fast as well.

Comfortable- good protection!
Straight out of the box these boots fit my wider than normal feet like a glove. Not riding for the next couple of months so they will have some time to get even better wearing around the house. Intend to wear them on my sport touring trips that include a little sightseeing every day and I believe they will fit the bill nicely (easy to walk in).
They have nice protection in the ankle and a slightly overkill poly pad on the shin that would protect against ramming on your pegs. I saw the damage the road does to legs while watching a fellow rider have a slow speed crash last summer...not gonna let that happen to me, hence these boots.
I like these boots so much I'm gonna suggest that my son get the same boots before riding season.
Revzilla's customer service was above and beyond. Got the boots to me before Christmas even when they were delayed by the manufacturer until mid December. (including international shipping) Good job guys!

First pair of boots I have purchased. True to size. Great support. Very good boot for standing up on riding in the pegs.

Great Dual Sport adv boot.
I wanted to pick a pair of boots for my adv riding as my Gaerne sg10 were a little overkill for the type of riding I do on my SuperTenere.. Besides that the metal and hard plastics of the Gaerne were scratching my bike painted areas and my paniers..
I saw the TCX Track evo's video advert and thought I'd give them a try.
Like usual Revzilla delivered when promised and price was the lowest on the web.
upon opening the box, I noticed these boots were considerably smaller and lighter than my MX boots.. so much I thought they were too small. But upon trying them on,,, they fit of the 45 euro sizes boot was perfect for my size 11us foot. the boots are much less stiff than my MX boots and I feel I could use these for daily walk around boots if I wanted. they are very comfortable.
on the bike.. I noticed with the soft suede material and rubber sole these were much easier on my bikes paint job when I swung my foot around mounting the bike.
while riding I found the boots very comfortable and easy to use my shifter and rear brake pedals. arch support was good while standing.
My first ride with them was a local 220 dual sport ride around the Texas hill country.. early morning temps were in the high 30's with afternoon temps in the low 60's.. feet were very comfortable in those tempts only wearing an athletic tube sock.
with a few creek crossings I tested the waterproof quality of the boot and can say no water entered the boot when water went over my foot peg.
so far I'm very happy with these boots and will make them my main ADV boots.
a few negatives were:
1.)Lug soles sometimes caught on my pivot pegs making transitioning foot placement a little awkward. You kinda have to lift your foot up to move as to sliding your foot on the pegs.
2) Breathablility might be not be the best and for multi day rides the boot might become a little stinky and hold in sweat.
I noticed my foot and boot were a little damp from sweat. thought I need to ride with the boot more to see if this will be a real issue or not.
3. protection of the boot isn't as good as my MX boot but It should be sufficient if I don't have any "Big" get offs.. LOL
