TCX Urban Waterproof Boots
Really excellent commuter boots
I commute 200 miles round trip and wanted boots that I can keep on all day, look good in the office and work well on the motorcycle, rain or shine, cold or hot. These boots work out perfectly. I've ridden them in pouring rain for 2 hours straight, temps from 35 to 85 and have walked in them for half hour brisk walks and I just have trouble believing that they are that good. I've been using them for 5 months so far and am so satisfied that I'm going to buy another pair just in case they stop producing them when I need a new pair.

Comfortable and well-built boots
No issues with this product. Would recommend it as winter boots.

Sensationally comfortable boots
Bought these boots because of the design and looks. I wanted to have boots that would strike the balance between providing enough protection and allowing to ware them at work in the office. Off course these boots do not fit under a suit with black tie, but they provide a perfect match with nice casual clothing. Moreover, I am very much surprised by the comfort that they provide. That is really amazing! Even for a long walk they are warm and zen-sationally comfortable!
My advise: Buy!

good boots, very comfortable
good boots, feel solid, protect from rain & are very comfortable compared to other riding boots i've had. I ride to work & wear them all day, no problem.

comfort and stylish
Sturdy, protective and comfortable. Cool Italian style on and off the bike. Keeps feet warm without sweating, so far I have been riding in temperatures between 50 and 70 F, but I expect it to do well in winter riding at 30 to 40 F.

Perfect commuter boot
I wanted a waterproof boot that offered decent protection in an office-friendly style, and these are right on the money. I wear a US size 10 in tennis shoes, and a 44 in Sidi. The 44 in these are a perfect fit. As another reviewer mentioned, you can remove the shift protector and they look like a normal pair of black leather boots. They're comfortable to walk in as well. The waterproofing is excellent, though you'll want to ensure that your rain pants come down far enough; these aren't overly tall boots. If you're a commuter that's looking for a good all-day boot that works in a business casual environment, this is the boot you want.

When I originally tried to purchase these boots, they were on backorder. I signed up to be notified when they came in stock, and Revzilla promptly emailed me when they became available. Kudos, Revzilla! Very few online stores do this!
I ordered a pair of 42s and a pair of 43s, as I didn't know which one would fit. I wear a size 9, and the size 42 fits me perfectly. Revzilla took the 43's back with no problem and even paid for the shipping.
I am a runner, so I have thicker-than-average calves. These low-rise boots seemed the slightest bit tight around my lower calves at first, but like a good leather boot should, it broke in and conformed after walking around in my living room for 30 minutes or so.
These boots are extremely comfortable. The leather is flexible where it needs to be. The soles are stiff enough for riding, but they are flexible enough to walk around in these all day. There are indeed great cockpits for your toe and heel; and there is malleolus protection for the outside of the ankle, but none on the inside, as the zipper is right where that would be.
Like the video says, there is no reflectivity on the boot. Nor is there an integrated shift pad. However, it comes with a really bada$$ slip-on shift pad to protect your boot.
This is the perfect boot for a commuter, as it offers great protection, but it does not scream MOTORCYCLE BOOT!! Slip off the shift pad, and you are wearing a great pair of stylish leather boots that work under jeans or Dockers or slacks, and comfortable enough for all day.
I have not had a chance to test them in the rain yet, but the gaiters are there, and the zipper stays up tight.
I highly recommend these boots from TCX.
