TCX X-Cube Boots
Excellent fit, comfortable.
I was unsure as to the exact boot I wanted. I watched several video reviews and this one has not disappointed. Fits well and I feel as though I am getting great protection in the ankle area. I would recommend this product.

Amazing for the Price
Bought these boots as my first REAL motorcycle boots. Best purchase ever. For only $140, these boots look good, have fantastic protection, and are waterproof.
They look great which is what you expect from TCX. The cool lines that wrap down the sides are what I like best. They're surprisingly comfortable, and not just while riding. I walked in them on an 8 hour trip (about 3 hours of walking) and didn't notice any soreness or tiredness. Maybe look into new insoles but not really necessary.
They are waterproof so that means they aren't very breathe able. Took them off at the 8 hour trip and even after I was sitting for the hour car ride home, I took them off only to realize how f***in hot they were! About 150°(obvious exaggeration). Didn't bother me too much since it was a bit cold out while I was riding. Also, drill another set of holes higher up the boot. The length of the laces and the number of holes doesn't match well. I just added another row of lacing by punching two new holes above the factory set.

Warm and comfortable
Comfortable off the bike as well. Fits well, not bulky. Laces a little too long. toe guard should have been a little bigger. Overall a good buy.

As boots go, this is a good one. I feel confident riding in them, it is also comfortable walking around (walked couple of miles without problem). Ankle is well protected and shifting if very comfortable.
The only downside are the laces are too long, I need to put 3 knots in it and they are really warm especially for the summer. When you ride - no problem, but as soon as you stop...Come fall they will be perfect, but in 75+ weather - too warm, but not like in a ski boot of course

Love the boots, wish the following was better:
I wore these boots day in day out on a 17 day, 5,000 mile cross country rode trip . I am very satisfied with how protected I felt, the flexibility, and the styling of the boot.
However , airflow is dismal, I am not sure what other reviewers who claim their feet stayed dry are talking about . Grip on the sole is surprising slippery . Be prepared for the boot to slide across smooth surfaces, not much grab on the sole. In regards to the absurdly long laces, I drilled two additional holes all the way up to the very top of the boot. This allowed me to lace the boot higher, thereby shortening the lace to a reasonable length .
Overall this boot is a great value even considering the weaknesses I brought up, and I would buy again.

Comfortable from day one. Laid the bike down with these boots on and they protected my feet well.

The word "air" in the name is well deserved
Ive put about 150 miles on this shoe since I got them earler this week. I almost sent them back and even processed a RA for them because at first try they seemed too tight. After giving it another try and wearing them inside for awhile I realized my foot was simply not used to this type of footwear. Im used to leather workboots exclusively and these are far and away superior for riding then leather work boots. For warm weather riding I cant say enough about the air flow through these boots,it feels great and my usually very sweaty feet were mostly dry when I took them off after a 90 deg f ride for an hour. These boots would not be comfortable for me to do any real walking in however so its a good thing I prefer to sit at the places I ride to! If your looking for a boot to wear all year and your climate is cold in the winter then I cant recommend this boot. If you like to hike around at your riding destination and are used to quite a different boot,then I cant recommend this boot. If you are an active warm weather rider but a couch potato at your destination then I highly recommend this boot.Its a darn fine riding boot.
My description says I ride a Triumph America,that is my secondary ride,my primary is a Triumph Tiger 1050

Good value for a true mc boot.
Performs as advertised. Very supportive top is still comfortable after a long day in the saddle (Dalton, GA to Ft.Myers, FL) Waterproof as advertised. If you don't have enough leg length for your saddle height, these could be a little slippery as there's not much tread. Since I don't like tracking mud, I appreciate the smoother bottoms that these have.
