TCX Women's Aura Boots
The right boot for my needs...
These boots seem to be high quality and well-made.
My opinion is that they are good boots for general riding. They are not designed to provide the protection of a race boot, but they do offer some good protective features (ankle pads, shin plates, non-slip sole)
The fit is good, true-to-size. The toe box is a little short -- meaning the hieght (moving toes up and down) is short, but it's not a bother. Just different. Adjustment for my calves is very good. No issues with that.
For my use, I'd absolutely buy these boots again.

Technical features but passes as a fashion boot
I wanted a plain black boot that would protect my feet and shins, but that I could wear into work or a restaurant. This does the job. It has a small heel and narrow foot bed, so they don't look like gear when worn under boot cut jeans. The top part is a bit scratchy but that could be addressed with long socks. The air flow is just ok, but not any worse than I would expect. Overall, they're a pretty good pair of boots. As with just about all motorcycle boots, they're pricey.

Great boots that offer protection & feminine style without being bulky. They are stiff at first but soon start to give and are ok for walking. I wish they had a slightly higher heel giving them a bit more style and perhaps could be a little higher up the leg. They are toasty warm though and in a down pour my feet stayed dry. Don't know what they will be like in an Australian hot summer though?
Worth the investment. Thanks for the super fast delivery too Revzilla!

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!
