TCX Women's Aura Boots
Thin leather across top of boot
I've always worn my sidi crossfires for dirt and street, finally decides to spend some money on some actual street/touring boots.
They're ok looking boots and seem fairly protective. The leather across the top seems a little thin, but should be ok. Except, that thin leather causes one big problem. Even though there is an extra layer of leather over the shift area, I found the leather wasn't heavy enough to keep from feeling the shifter on the top of foot. I was riding around town and the top of my big toe felt like it was actually blistering. Ouch. If I keep these boots I'm going to have to glue a thicker piece of leather at the shifting area. This really shouldn't be a problem on boots at this price.
They seem like they'll break in easily. We'll see how long they last.

Try This Boot.
Can't say enough good things about this boot. Runs true to the size chart. Aura Boot is the right combination of protection and COMFORT. My first experience at wearing them ~6 hours a day, two days in a row, riding, and some walking around. I was very surprised and pleased at how comfortable No bulky feel with this boot. My foot is narrow, and there is still plenty of room. Well worth the money and your feet will thank you.

Good boot, if a bit narrow
My wife needed some new riding boots, and after trying several different ones, we settled on these. They are not very wide, so it makes them a little of a snug fit, but they aren't bad when riding, just walking around gets snug. They have good protection and are overall some pretty nice boots. She would definitely recommend them for someone who wants a safe boot that doesn't look like a storm trooper.

Great, sleek boots
I'm very happy with these boots. They look great, feminine, subtle and robust. The tops are flexible so for wider calves or tucking in pants it's perfectly comfortable. I'm happy to walk around in them, especially since they aren't as 'loud' as other options.
Some resources mentioned stitched soles are more protective than glued and I'm not sure if these are stitched on the interior but that would be my one recommendation if that line of reasoning is legitimate.
I wear a size 7.5 in Asics for running (6.5-7 for other shoes) and a size 38 in the TCX's fit perfectly.

I love these boots!
I have had trouble in the past finding a boot that isn't so narrow in the ankle that I can't get them on. I followed the advice of the other reviewers and both listened to the video and spoke with one of the very well informed customer service folk. I had to wait a day to get the boots because the post office won't deliver to my home because the delivery gal is terrified of my puppies. So I went to the post office to pick them up and rushed home with lots of trepidation to try them on. No worries, they slipped right on. We rode all weekend long on the beautiful NC mountain roads and they were pretty comfortable. The little discomfort I felt will go away after I ride a few more times. I am very happy with this purchase and with Revzilla. I highly recommend these boots ... and they are attractive too!

Love these boots!
These boots are exactly what I wanted! I have worn another pair of boots for 4 years that were a little narrow in the toe box and was looking for something that was a little wider and that I could walk around in when off the bike. These are perfect for that! I am 5'8 and wear a size 10 and my foot is a little wide, I got the size 42 and they are very comfortable. I received these from my husband for Christmas and it's been a bad winter here in southern Indiana so I have only ridden about 350 miles since getting them. I ride a BMW R1150RT and rode over 12,500 miles last year, so I am looking forward to seeing how these hold up to that many miles. At this point, they seem up to the task...if there was a negative at all it's that I can feel my shifter through the boot a little more than I could in my previous boot but I think it's just a different feel not bad. They seem to have a lot of protection and style which is hard to find in the same boot. One last thing, I was originally going to buy a different brand boot but I called Revzilla to ask a question, the guy I talked to asked about my previous boot, my foot size and shape, my riding style, miles I ride, etc. and told me this boot would be a better choice...he was right on the money! I love Revzilla for their quality riding gear and excellent customer service!

Great Boots...totally impressed!
These boots came to me really fast and free shipping to Hawaii just as promised.
I had purchased them based on reviews by other customers. I wanted something different from the usual "cruiser" style boots I had been wearing for the last 20 years of riding.
I've purchased all kinds of brands and price ranges and I like the look and features of these boots.
They arrived last Friday and I wore them for a half-day ride out to the hot, leeward end of O'ahu. At first they were a little stiff and it took a little while to get used to them. On the way home, there was an accident on the freeway and I was stuck in stop and go traffic for an hour and the boots stayed comfortable in spite of 95-degree heat.
The following day i wore them again on a ride out to the north shore and got caught in a driving downpour with no opportunity to pull over and put on rain gear.
I got some rain down the calf-portion of the boots but that was to be expected.
By the time I got home I was literally soaked to the skin through my jacket, jeans and socks down to my ankles. The only part of me that was dry was my feet and the top of my head because of my helmet.
BTW-at one point I had pulled into a gas station for shelter and the parking lot looked like a lake and when I pulled out, water flowed over my boots and they still stayed dry inside.
Also, I had to walk a couple of hundred yards at one point (before it rained)and the boots were quite comfortable for walking even though they were brand new.
Aloha from Hawaii,

Well-made, comfortable boot
I have had a pair of Oxtar (now TCX) Matrix GTX boots for about 10 years and have been very impressed with their performance and wear - indestructible over many thousands of miles. So, it was a no-brainer when it came time to replace my wife's non-motorcycle boots with the similar TCX Aura model. She wears a US size 7, but based on other reviewers recommendations for a half-size smaller, I ordered the EU 38 (US size 6.6) and they fit her perfectly. After many rides since receiving them, she is still VERY pleased with the fit and slimmer, more feminine shape. Overall, an excellent boot in every way!
