TCX Women's X-Rap WP Shoes
not super stylish, but quite functional
I'm liking these shoes more as I have them longer, maybe because they are getting broken in. The size on me is a little large. I don't find them to be extremely stylish, but I do like that they aren't obviously riding shoes. I haven't found them to be comfortable enough walking around that I would plan on wearing them when I'm not on my bike. However, I find them very functional when I am on my bike, shifting seems more secure with them and I like how they feel when I have to put my feet down on pavement.

Great shoes. Waterproof feature makes the not breath
Great shoes with the exception of air flow. That would be due to the waterproofing, but other than that they are awesome.

Great ATGATT gear
Ok so women's gear is hard to find in a style that we actually like. I was searching for a boot I could wear all day and not scream "HEY LOOK AT ME! I RIDE A MOTORCYCLE! AND I'M A CHICK!" I think the idea of a shoe that looks like a bowling shoe but is actually a motorcycle boot, is weird. BUT these boots look nonchalant under jeans while adding an abundant amount of protection. The first day I wore them, I also wore my overpants for the first time, leading my coworker to scoff at me and say "after all that, you're going to wear tennis shoes" which I guess is the best response I could have asked for. I think they're fine around the office all day, not as comfy as my usual flip flops, but not as stiff as full moto boots. I also skipped a hole on the lacing because it was pressing on a blood vessel or something (my foot was falling asleep on the bike) but I haven't had any issues after the modification. My only complaint is that they don't have a pad where the shifter makes contact, which leads to an obvious gray wear mark. Also be aware that since they are waterproof, they don't breathe well. I highly recommend them for people who ride every day or close to that, and who could get away with wearing one pair of shoes a lot. I do bring flip flops to work if I'm wearing skinny jeans that day, but otherwise I wear these exclusively. Mine fit true to size, both American sizing and European seem to be right.

Love these shoes!
I purchased these shoes online after having no luck shopping around for shoes, that were comfortable, stylish and protective, in shops in Sydney, Australia. I generally wear converse and vans and never thought that I could have a similar style for my bike shoes! These shoes are very comfortable, they are breathable so my feet don't get overheated and they are stylish. The only feature I wish they had is a shoelace guard on my left foot, which is a flap that goes over the front part of the shoelaces so that you don't have to worry about your gear leaver getting caught in your laces and it also provides added protection and comfort for when you change gears. However, this is just a minor thing and not really necessary. I love these shoes and have already recommended them to friends!

My husband bought these boots in the male version and absolutely loves them. He likes the fact they aren't too bulky and he can wear them under his jeans and they look like casual sneakers. I have had a hard time buying motorcycle boots. They are either labeled motorcycle boots just because they are fashion "riding boots" or they aren't the type of protection I've been searching for. After seeing him enjoy them so much, I decided to buy a pair. They are sturdy, very waterproof, comfortable, and fit true to size. I am normally an 8.5 so I got a 9 (41). They aren't flashy and they fit under my riding pants. I love them and I can't wait to wear them for our big motorcycle trip this summer!

Look and fit great. Very edgy too.
The last pair of boots I ordered I had to return due to my calf size and their overall fit. Wasn't sure I wanted something other than the 'traditional' riding boot but I am a fan of tennis shoes and even more so, high tops. Since I ride a Spyder, I don't need side panels and all the rest of the offered features in riding shoes. These fit great, altho' I would like longer laces. Some stiffness out of the box but they are already getting better the few hours I have worn them.
I find them true to size also and average width. Try them, bet you'll like them!
