TCX Women's Aura Boots
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.

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!

Everything Anthony promised and a good value to "boot".
I bought these for my wife a few weeks before an extended motorcycle trip to Lexington, KY. She watched the presentation that Anthony gave on-line and gave the thumbs-up. When she received them and put them on, she remarked how comfortable they were and how easy they were to walk in. We just came back from our 10 day trip and she has nothing but high praise for the boots. If you have a half size, order the next full size for a good fit. She normally wears an 8.5 shoe and the 9.0 fit her perfectly. These are a good value.

Very Nice Boots
This was my first purchase of riding boots. I did a great deal of research, watched several Revzilla video reviews, and even spoke to a Revzilla customer rep to help me choose between this boot and others. I normally wear a size 7 and ordered a half size smaller than the size chart suggestion based upon reading the reviews. The boot fit perfectly, even with thick socks. Boot is very comfortable and did not require much break in. Quality appears to be very good. I have had no difficulty shifting gears with the boot. I am very pleased with my purchase and with the service I received from Revzilla.

Bought these boots for my wife and loves them. She wears a size 7, got size 39 and they fit great right out of the box. These might be iffy if you have a wide foot. There mainly for cold wet riding so we didn't want a lot of air flow. There is virtually none. (Hense the poor rating). These will an oven in the summer, when you want air flow, not in the cold. Rode a couple of days with temps pushing 80, She said her feet got a little too warm. They seem to have very good protection. She has about a 1000 miles in the cold and some torrential down pours. Feet stayed warm and dry. Well worth the extra $$.

Love these boots.
I am new to motorcycling and took a chance on these boots. I love them! I'm an 8.5, somewhat narrow foot, so got the Euro size 40 and they fit perfectly right out of the box. They are well made, and they look good too. Since they are leather, they are a bit warm for summer riding, but worth the protection. Highly recommend them!

Love TCX boots!
This is my second pair of TCX boots. I've had my first pair for over 4 years and I still wear them for road trips. I bought these new ones because I ride to work daily and I needed something to wear in the office that looked nicer and wasn't all scuffed up and dirty. The fit on these boots is the best I've ever experienced, and I've tried all types of boots from high end to low end boots... I always send them back. The space for the toes is perfect... most other boots are too big and my toes feel like their swimming yet the next sized down is usually too small for my foot toe-to-heel. I definitely recommend getting the size that is a half size smaller than normal for you or they may be too loose all-around. The weatherproofing is great, yet they breathe very well, and I don't end up with "stinky foot smell" when I take them off each day. They offer great protection for the foot and ankles while not being so stiff that I can't walk in them. The only thing I'm not sure of is the front of these new boots stands out from my shin by a couple inches, so if I get caught in a rain storm, the rain is going right down the boot. Ideally I will have my rain gear with me and be able to stop and put it on and it will cover the opening, but there is that chance I won't, and my feet will get flooded. I also love the half zipper with velcro enclosure. The tab on the zipper has velcro on both sides so you can be sure it is secured in the velcron enclosure and won't slide down. It's the attention to detail like that, that makes me really love these boots! 4 or 5 years from now, when these boots are all scuffed up, I will again be looking at buying a new pair of TCXs! The quality, fit, finish,.and protection make them well worth every penny!!

Two reasons why I bought this boot:
2) Elastic band at the back to accommodate calf size
I'm 5'4" and 135 and I have trouble finding boots that fit my calves comfortably. These are perfect. They look good, not so clunky. I have to say that I knew they would fit, right out of the box, but they were stiff! I felt like I was in a ski boot! So I've had to wear them around the house, doing squats, going up and down the stairs, to break them in as I couldn't flex them enough to shift! All good now.
Also, I'm a size 9 in most shoes, yet I had to go with the 42. The 41 was tight in the toe box.
I have a feeling these boots are going to last me for years!
