TCX Women's X-Street Waterproof Shoes
They do run a little big for the size. Other than that they are are great shoe. And provide excellent stability and support with a stylish sneaker look. I too wish they came in any other color but pink. But I Jane small feet so it was a great option for me.

Fun alternative riding "boots"
I really like these riding "boots" which are much more Converse-looking. They are more protective than meets the eye, and they are very comfortable. The sole provides decent but not the best traction. Be advised that these shoes run quite large. I typically wear shoes in size 7 1/2 to 8 but the European size conversion says a size 7 for the pair I wound up with. I had to send back the first pair and wait for several weeks for a size smaller to come back in stock. Unfortunately, when they came back in stock they were more expensive by $20 which dropped my "bang for the buck" rating.

Easy look, excellent protection
I have been searching for a motorcycle boot that just looked... normal! These look like an unassuming sneaker, but looks are deceiving as they have good ankle protection, a stiff sole, and a strong build. I can't really speak to their water proofing yet, but some is better than none, right? The do run large, I am a true 8 and had to order a size down for them to fit right.
I agree with the other review that I would rather these look like the men's style, but with what else is out there for females, I'll take it!

Stylish Riding Boots
So stylish plus funtionable boots. I used the boots around the house first before using it for riding.. Super cool boots. It is a comfortable boots to ride with. I used an Oxtar and I prefer these Awesome boots. The retro design iand workmanship is Superb. My advice is order 1 size smaller . For instant, i am a size 38 but I ordered a 37. It fits perfectly. Thanx Revzilla for giving me a chance to own an Awesome boots.

Great comfort, questionable styling
Lemme start with the good...
Very comfortable, although it took me 3 tries to find a pair that didn't poke at my big toe! Very firm, nothing like wearing a pair of Chucks or Vans. Ankle inserts are right at the perfect height.
My only gripe is the styling! Why does it HAVE to have freakin pink on it? All I want is the same TCX Street Shoe than the men have, but made from a female last. The men's are awesome all black leather with black laces, simple and cool. Why are the ladies' all suedey n stuff? Dunno.
If I am not in the majority I understand. I'm not your pink lovin kind of gal, more cafe than cruiser;)

Stylish, high-quality, functional motorcycle shoe perfect for city commuting!
Ladies... these skate-style hightops make your foot look ultra cool (and dainty). But of course, aside from the killer style, they are awesome for riding!
These shoes are waterproof but breathable, flexible in the right places and stiff in the right places. (*snicker*). They have the perfect blend of feeling in the sole so you know where your foot is with respect to the motorcycle controls and reinforced protection around the ankle and outside portion of the foot. When riding across Golden Gate Bridge you often encounter cold gusts of wind and mist / rain. These shoes protect well against the both while maintaining their grip on the pegs/street when it's wet... I've tried a bunch of different styles of riding shoes/boots for city commuting but these are my favorite, go-to kicks!
They feel and look great on the street, too. I get compliments every time I wear 'em! Love the slightly "worn" aspect and colors. These shoes are extremely well-made and will last a long time. The materials used for the upper portion of the shoe are high quality. This also extends to all the little things that break down over time like durable stitching, reinforced eyelets, thick laces, deep tread, etc.
Sizing was a bit confusing to get right because they are only offerred in European sizes which don't translate 1-to-1 with U.S. sizes. I would say that the width is average: not especially narrow or wide. But the sizing runs slightly large. I am normally a size 37 in Euro but had to exchange for a size 36 to fit my U.S. size 7/7.5 feet.
Overall I think they are a fantastic value with multiple uses. Great on the road, great on the street, great on the dance floor. Highly recommended!

Best looking pair of riding shoes!
I'm a customer from Singapore and got this pair of shoes to keep out the wet weather. They run a little large and lucky for me i ordered a half size down so they fit perfectly. The shoes have been really comfortable so far and I've been getting compliments for them, can't wait to see how they fare in the rain!
