TCX Women's X-Square Boots
Great for commuting - NOT waterproof
Ok so I don't own ANY over the ankle boots aside from these, and bought them as something to have on my ankles in case I go down.
Are they the best boots as far as protection? No, absolutely not.
Are they something? Yeah.
I really like them because I can wear them off the bike and move around without it being a Big Painful Deal. They're light and comfortable. I don't live in a super hot climate, so the airflow is alright for me. I like the bottoms, they seem to grip reasonably well.
The only thing that bothers me is that the equivalent Men's boot seems to have a more sturdy construction. They have extra stuff on the toe for the shifter and all. The Women's boots don't. We still shift, guys. I'd like my boots to not fall apart as quickly.
Something to note, though, if you need a boot for every occasion. THESE ARE NOT WATERPROOF AT ALL. I bought them knowing this so I'm not upset, but they will literally fill up with water. I'm going to grab some waterproofing spray for rainier days and I'll survive.

No better than a hiking boot
Thin barely there ankle protection. Minimal protection, but for low speed commute, should be sufficient. Shoes are attractive and comfortable, ankle height allows for commuting without a change of shoes at work. Have worn them all day with no discomfort, right out of the box. Suede uppers do not allow any airflow, so a bit hot at low speed. However, price was great, so I should have expected a big step down from my Dianese boot.

This is a good for a Girly girl!
I had a hard time finding shoes that were not manley. when I saw this I thought they were perfect. I do not ride my bike much, but I feel my feet are proteced. I wear a size 5.5 in men, and they do not half sizes, so I went with size 6 in mens. It is not a big difference. I think this is a good riding shoe.

exactly what I was looking for
The US size guide is way off! I had a European size listed inside of my tennis shoes and went with that size, I wear a US women's size 7 shoe which is a 37 European size and that was perfect, the size guide they have showed I should get a 39. Well I got a 38 originally since they were out of 37 and they were huge! Finally got it in a 37 and they are perfect! I have wide feet (6.5 wide in heels) so it feels a bit snug at the ball of my foot but it’s not uncomfortable and I never even noticed it once I was on my bike. Love the styling, it’s exactly what I wanted, a more tennis shoe looking riding boot and it has the same toe and ankle protection as the men’s version. But definitely make sure you have socks tall enough to cover the ankles, the shoe got itchy with my no show socks on when I first tried them on. The slip on shifter protector is pretty much useless, I had put it on and noticed later it fell off somewhere, turns out if fell off in my driveway just getting out of the garage. I’m thinking of cutting off the elastic and shoe-gooing it to my boot, but for now I’m going to ride without it and see how quickly it wears through, I’ll probably do that after I have more wear and tear. Its very easy to feel the shifter and break pegs through them compared to the magnum combat boots I had on before. The tread is nice and grips well on the street, it gives me the same height as my previous boots without all the bulk and weight, but its not a lot of height but it is more height than my tennis shoes are. I love the solid black and just the hint of shine from the design on the sides. Overall I love these boots and am very glad I got them!

tired of the clod hopper boots
Fit was true to size. Solid boot that took very little time to break in. Wore them 2 times and they feel like a gym shoes yet are still very solid feeling. Now this boot is first choice when riding

Good for daily use
These shoes are really comfortable to ride in and walk around in, although they get a little humid inside on hot days. The sole is pretty flexible, just slightly stiffer than a normal running shoe. The upper covers the ankle bone. However, there is no additional reinforcement and no built-in shifter pad. The shoe laces that came with the shoe are way too long, to the point that I feel like they're a hazard for getting caught in a moving part or something. I have to change them for a shorter lace, but haven't gotten around to it yet.
My feet are really narrow, so it is roomy inside the boot for me, but not to the point where it's falling off. I normally wear size 39 in Dainese boots or size 8 US for running shoes like Nike and New Balance, so I ordered a size 39/US7 (according to the label in the shoe). There is still lots of room in the toes, so makes me think I could of gone a size down, but it's still comfortable despite the extra room.

Good purchase for hard to fit rider
This is my first pair of motorcycle boots. I am very hard to fit for boots as I wasn't blessed with narrow ankle and calf structure. I really did not want to resort to bulky, heavy boots, so I was pleased to find some boots that are comfortable, stylish to a degree and functional. I did have to extend the Velcro strap by attaching additional Velcro strips that you can get at about any hardware store, but given all the other factors, that is a minor detail, and is hardly noticeable. Good purchase!
