Glad I Bought Them
I bought these boots for a 17,000 mile R/T ride from CT to Prudhoe Bay, AK. I particularly wanted boots that were comfortable enough for 12 hour days in temps ranging from the low 30s to high 80s, and offering a lot protection while off the pavement in Alaska. These have done the trick!

They were comfortable from day one. And, they protected me. I had an unfortunate crash on the Dalton about 100 miles north of the Arctic Circle and took a major high side. I apparently hit my left instep on something hard when going over the bars. Though badly bruised, my left foot survived the the impact. Nursing broken ribs and hypothermia, I was able to ride the remaining 100 miles to Prudhoe Bay to seek medical help.

I believe my foot would have been broken in my street boots.

The only minor complaint I have is that I find the fasteners to be a bit fussy.

Great boot for wider feet
Have now done a couple of rides with these boots and love them. They're very comfortable while walking, and provide a sturdy platform when standing on the pegs. Much better than my touring boots. And the fit my wide feet quite well, which is usually a limits my selection of Eureopean boots.

Ready for anything!
I bought these boots for a 6500 mile trip to Alaska and back to Oregon. I managed to break my foot a few weeks before take off and had no time to break them in at all. I got a size 45 as recommended by the size chart, I wear 11 Nike's and they were a hair tight when I first tried them on. Had these babies broken in within the first few days of the trip.
They were perfect for everything I threw at them, I am a TCX customer for life!!
I rode through 90+ to 30- degree weather. Never got uncomfortable, though they don't breath too well in the hot hot heat. Had plenty of room for thick socks and not too loose for thin summer socks. The buckles never gave me grief and I like the set it and forget it system. I have skinny legs but never got any rubbing or such at the rim of the boot.
I rode through a few thousand miles of what I can only describe as biblical rain and these boots didn't leak a drop and kept me warm and cozy the entire time. THE GORTEX IS NO JOKE IN THESE BOOTS. They were comfortable for the entirety of 600 mile days and tons of off road. They had great control feel and performed very well even when standing on the pegs for hours at a time. Fit was perfect inside my REV'IT Neptune pants even with the big shin protector.
I highly recommend these boots to anyone who will put them through some serious riding!!

Very comfortable
Ordered this along with the $500 Alpinestar for comparison. Decided to keep the TCX as I have a relatively narrow foot and the Alpinestar was to loose. Normally wear a size 46 shoe and decided for the 47. Spot on. Took it on an adventure ride in the Mojave desert. The foot section is relatively high compared to others and the sole doesn't protrude much on the sides so it is a little harder to change gears. But very happy with the purchase.

Super Adventure Boot
I had continuous shin bruising from my footpegs when riding offroad. I needed a boot that was high enough to protect my shin and with enough padding to prevent bruising, and just protection in general. Plus my foot is a bit wide. Finally, I live and ride primarily in Georgia, so I needed a boot that would not be so hot in summer. After studying the options I narrowed it down to one boot. I called RevZilla to order the boot and to just get confirmation that I chose a boot that met my needs. The RevZilla Customer Service guy was very helpful and talked to me straight, which I like. After I described my requirements, he indicated that the boot I selected was nice, but based on my needs, he suggested TCX X-Desert Gore-Tex Boots. Well he's the Pro, so that's what I ordered. Great boot. Does what I need. Fits great. Comfortable to walk in. And, did I mention protection?

This product has excellent quality and fit!
These boots offer excellent comfort, first I was concerned about the with of my feet "E" this was not a problem. Second the protection offered is just what I wanted firm in a protection ares but allows you to walk around in them while your stopped for a period of time.
Just a sidebar, the customer service people know their product so ask them, several times they've been right-on.

Don't have a lot of miles on them, but they feel great . Built like the proverbial brick ----house. They were instantly comfortable for walking in. I can only think they'll improve as the miles add on.

size for wide feet
Knowing how hard it is to buy boots,or helmets on line,I thought I'd put my 2 cents in here
I wear a 10 H in red wing steel toe and a 10EEE in throgood steel toe,started out with a 45 in these boots but were too tight in the ball of the foot,sent them back and exchanged for 46,just about as perfect as I'm ever going to get,which is to say I'm happy with them,as always no problem with revzilla thanks.
I will abuse them this summer and send in a review on how they perform.

Good dual sport boot
These boots are very comfortable for my wide width feet. They remind me of my old motocross boots and have a nice sole that is pretty comfortable to walk in. I'm pretty happy with these. Haven't got into any water yet to check the "waterproofness" but I'm sure the Gore Tex works as advertised.

TCX Does It Again!
I purchased a pair of TCX (formally Oxtar) X-Deserts to replace my aging Oxtar Infinities. My Infinities were a size 46 and fit like slippers. I ordered the X-Deserts in 46 as well . . . While they're definitely too big I do find the toe box a wee bit narrow and a bit more tapered in then the Infinity. I also noticed a "sliding forward" sensation in the X-Desert which was easily corrected by changing the insole to a Superfeet gore-tex friendly insole. I also took the boots to a cobbler and had the toe box stretched a bit. I do LOVE these boots . . . and my minor adjustments for fit aren't complaints, just personal observations and tweeks to make sure I thoroughly enjoy the long hours I often put in on my bikes. The TCX X-Deserts offer a lot of great features for the money . . . they're a GREAT value . . . the protection and design are hard to beat at this price point.

these Goretex boots should breathe better than the less expensive WP boots
Gary A on Apr 22, 2015
I wanted boots that were more protective than regular street boots, but not full-on motocross boots. The other options where Alpinestars Toucan and Sidi Adventure. The Toucans were too bulky (though very comfortable), and the Adventures didn't fit very well, so I went with these. They seem to be a bit less stiff laterally than the Toucans, but still provide a lot more protection than more street-oriented boots (even race boots).
G N on Feb 7, 2015
More expensive than I wanted but it was recommended by revzilla staff, looks like exactly what I want. Hopefully they will prove to be very durable.
Aidan H on Jan 30, 2015
Decision was based on reviews from other users along with the gortex, dual sport benefit regarding the boots. I love the video reviews from revzilla, the free shipping and easy exchange policy
Don B on Jan 6, 2015
After trying on these, Sidi Adventure, and AlpineStars Toucan, these were the most comfortable and I liked the features the best. After a 900 mile dual sport ride I'm thrilled with them. I was able to try their waterproofing and comfort for 10-12 hours per day and loved every minute. I'm tossing my BMW Touring boots and using these for street from now on also.
Brian M on Sep 25, 2014
Great styling and perfect for street and off road use when I need it on my BMW F770 Gs.. I like the lug sole for traction which many boots don't have as I have to get out of the driveway which is steep and a gravel road. Also the protection to the ankle and shin is well thought out. Protection is hat I am looking for and versatility.
Lisa S on Sep 13, 2014
I bought these because Revzilla has the best reviews on the internet. I also liked the protection, gortex, and price point.

Customer reviews + comments from Alex @ Revzilla. Also much feedback from a friend that has bought MANY items from Revzilla
A S on Aug 1, 2014
After watching your excellent video reviews of both the TCX X-Desert and the Sidi Adventure, I decided the TCX was "good enough" for my needs. I chose Revzilla because of the great information you provide in your videos and convenient return/exchange policies.

JcF700 on Apr 8, 2016
Do these boots have any significant lateral ankle support, or is it more just impact protection?
Neal C on Jun 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It's mainly impact protection. (ankle, shin, heel) I've got about 10K miles on mine. You can fold them over laterally just above the ankle. I felt I needed more protection for when I'm in the dirt and more likely to dump the bike so I bought a pair of SG12's for that purpose. The TCX's have been relegated to my commuter boots. Hope that helps.
How wide does it fit? I have a very wide foot (4E in running shoes). The guys at Revzilla told me TCX has the widest foot print.I normally use 8 1/2 4E shoes. any recommendation on sizing ?
Mark B on Nov 18, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I normally have a hard time finding shoes due to my weird shaped feet. I usually require a very straight sole contour at the great toe. If the shoe cuts across the toe too soon I have bad problems with pain and ingrown toe nails. My hiking shoes are all Keen brand because of the toe box shape. I took a risk and ordered these without trying them on was fully surprised to find that they fit well. The inner portion of the sole is fairly straight and does not cut across my toe. I usually wear 13 wide.(?) these fit well and comfortable all day and, i can assure you, they are waterproof.
I'm looking for a year round touring boot and have been eyeing these a while now. I travel far and see very drastic temperature changes. Probably in temp ranges from the 30's to the 100 F. Wondering if anyone has enjoyed them in both temp extremes and how they handled it, especially in the heat being gortex? Any advice is greatly appreciated!!
Tamer R on Jun 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have ridden in the 30's up to the 90's with the TCX Desert boot. In the cold they do a good job of keeping your feet warm with just a pair of lightweight wool socks. These boots get hot when the temperature gets into the 90's. Yes, the Gire-Tex breathes but you can't get around the fact that they are leather and that they are full length. Great boot would definitely recommend but don't expect to hem to be ultra comfortable in hot weather.
anyone know where these are made?
Jonathan on May 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Mine indicate they were made in Romania.
Can the inssoles inside the boots be replaced or are they attached?
Darrin K on Sep 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Mine are about a year old and if the factory hasn't changed them, the insole come right out. On another level, I bought these to ride the TAT for two weeks. I was looking for the bomb proof boot. These are great, but maybe a bit of overkill. I found them overly stiff. They made shifting while standing tiresome. If you're not riding a lot off road you might want something just a tad more flexible.
Can you replace the soles on these boots? I have the TCX Infinity that are unbelievably comfortable but soles keep coming off and the manufacturer tells me the soles cannot be replaced - must throw them away and they are on the expensive side for a non-repairable boot.
A shopper on Oct 27, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I don't believe you can re-sole te TCX X-Desert looking at my pair. I too had the Infinities that after 6 years started to become unglued. The X-desert has a much heavier sole than the Infinity and the construction is much more rugged. I'm a sport touring rider so I may not abuse tem as much as a dual sport rider. For a Gore-Tex boot with a replaceable sole at a similar price I would lean towards the Sidi Adventure Gore-Tex. Sidi actually sells the replacement sole for the Adventure.
Can I really use this as a motocross boot?
A C on Nov 6, 2016
