TCX Urban Waterproof Boots
Nice looking boot.
They suggested you go down a size or buy your usual size. I went one bigger and to be honest could have gone 1/2 to 1 bigger again. I have worn them to work to break them in and after a week they are getting softer and more comfortable and I think they will come right. Size is starting to become fine now but I usually take size 10-11 and I got 11.5. Really nice boot. Little limited with a higher boot for walking but OK.

Seems to be very well made. Excelent style. The sole has very good grip in the wet and the boots are really waterproof. Very nice product.

Great riding boots.
These boots look great on and off the bike. I can wear them on my commute to work and wear them around the office. These are leather boots with no ventilation, so obviously they will get hot if you wear them above 70 degrees. I walked around for hours in them and they were very comfortable. The leather is soft, but the construction feels durable. I usually wear a 9.5 in shoes and 10 in boots. I ordered the 43 and they fit perfect. Even a little room if I want to wear thicker socks in the winter.

Comfort at the right price
I love these boots. They are great for looks and comfort. I highly recommend these. These boots are are really great value.

confortable but a bit warm for the summer
Perfect for commuting when you need to look nicer for meetings. Being waterproof is essential in the summer when it rains a lot in Brazil but they will be a little warm if you plan to wear them all day walking around outdoors.
Overall I'm satisfied with the boots.
My previous ones weren't waterproof neither that good looking.

Good Looks, Great Quality
I normally wear a size 9 1/2 wide or a 10 regular. I ordered a size 43 (9US) and they fit very well. Just a hair narrow, but after a few hours of wear they fit great.
They seem to be very well made. The leather is thick (and mostly soft). The stitching is well done, the zippers function smoothly and easily, and the rubber sole is extremely solid. Overall they appear to be extremely well made. The one nit I could pick is that the insoles look pretty thin. If you are looking to spend significant time on your feet in them, you might want to look into a decent insole, but on the motorcycle, they are fine.
The leather is thick so they should have good abrasion resistance. They have heel and toe cups and a sole that resists twisting nicely (but is fine for walking) so it should resist foot-crushing nicely. The ankle protection is not great, but is does have a small piece of armor on the outside. Please note, I have not personally tested any of these in a crash situation. Fully waterproof with a gaiter at the zipper looks like it will work well, but I have not had a chance to test.
From the pictures I was expecting something that would look like a stylish Italian city boot, but they are actually more rugged looking than that. The leather has a pretty pronounced grain (which I probably should have expected from a full grain leather), but I suspect they will smooth out with some wear and some shoe polish. The sole is also fairly chunky, more like a cruiser boot than a fashion boot. Overall they look great with jeans, they look good with khakis, some people might be able to pull off wearing them with a suit, but I'm not one of them.
Fits Large. High Quality. Decent Protection. Good Style (but a bit more rugged looking than I expected). Good Price.

Can't love more
If you want a pair of boots that protect your feet, ankles, work place friendly, style, wear with jeans, khakis, waterproof and worth all your pennies, get these boots. It's quality built, stiff like above ankle boots to protect them. I'm telling you since it's closed out, get a pair.
Delivery from Phila, PA to Springfield, VA is 1 day with UPS ground. Way to go Revzilla.

Good boot for the money.
I've been wearing these boots for almost a year now. On the plus side, they *are* waterproof. I've ridden in Texas and Florida downpours in these boots, and my feet stay dry as a bone. Yay! The tread, while not aggressive, has worn well and provides solid footing. The boot soles have remained stiff laterally, but are reasonably flexible lengthwise. They are very sturdy and I trust they will do the job if I end up executing an unscheduled dismount. Styling-wise, I can wear them at work and not feel like my feet are screaming, "I'm a motorcycle rider, and I want everybody to know it!" They are very understated, which I much prefer.
Minuses: First, I'm not sure whether I have cankles, or Italian riders have chicken legs, but I find that these boots are too tight at the top. I always have to unzip them part way, or they become uncomfortable. Second, the leather is coated with some kind of semi-gloss protectant layer which does not wear well, and which does not take well to boot polish. Frankly, the leather finish is more reminiscent of sofa leather than what I think of as boot leather. The guys at TCX need to talk to the guys at Danner to learn about good ol' 'merican boot leather. (That said, the leather and stitching have held up well overall.)
