TCX X-Move WP Boots
Great boot, stylish and functional
I love these boots. The order came quickly and size was right. First time in they felt incredibly comfortable from the narrowish foot base all the way to the ankle support. I thought the laces were a bit on the thick side and too long. I replaced them with thiner laces that are easier to knot and tuck in behind the velcro strap.
I've ridden about 400 miles in them and felt very comfortable, the boot does not stick out and can be kept close to the bike thanks to its narrow profile and rounded edges. Only issue I have is that the hard ankle/malleolar protection on the inside gouged the paint on my clutch cover. It a design issue, I don't think it's very smart to have a hard plastic piece there, I'll have to cover it to prevent further scratches on my paint.

Rugged and Stylish - everything you look for in a boot is right here.
My first impression of the TCX X-Move fresh out of the box was definitely a positive experience. It's sleek style with carbon fiber accents along the heel side make for a durable and street worthy boot on and off the bike. I agree with others on this post that the laces hang and defeat the purpose of the velcro strap due to their length but it is only a matter of being creative - either tuck your laces into the boot, cut the laces shorter, or replace them altogether. The sole is stiff however it will give over time with a few rides. I recommend using inserts to make these boots comfortable on and off the bike, after doing this I kept these boots on for the majority of the week, I just couldn't take them off! All in all great boots and great price for such a good product. I highly recommend these!

Best boots i've owned
Great recommendation. These have great support for a mid-cut boot. The ankle support is serious, these will protect well. The style and quality is pure Italian and i would say fit true to size. I ordered my sneaker size and these boots fit just as well. The ankle area is very stiff and needs some getting used to on the first couple rides but this is not a fault, just a heads up.

excellent shoe, great look, comfort, very good protection
nice looking, comfortable shoe with very good protection (had a lowside with the bike sliding on my foot with no consequences).
fits true to size (i wear size 10.5-11 -- euro size 45 fits with space to spare for a thick sock)

I got these because the Ducati team riders said they were excellent boots for the money. They are by far the most comfortable shoes I have ever bought for riding. They are comfortable as sneakers after you wear them a day or two. Plenty of support for your foot for long rides also. Overall an excellent value.

great riding boots
Great looking boots, really top notch construction. They look a lot like street shoes. Which is great when off the bike. Very good protection features. Boots feel solid. They are also very light and easy to shift with.
They are uncomfortable off the bike. Not enough cushion and no arch support. On the bike is fine but you will need sole inserts walking around in them for more than a short walk. The lace system is hard to tighten and loosen.
Great riding boots at a good price. Just stay on the bike.

TCX X-Move WP Boots-Good for Narrow to Neutral Foot
Fitment: I have a narrow foot and these boots are perfect for me. Wouldn't recommend them to a wide foot but, a neutral would do ok. Decent for walking around, they are a bit stiff when you first get them but, once broken in they are much more comfortable. Takes about 3 weeks or, 20 hours of wear to break all the way in.
Lightweight, comfortable, sturdy and stylish
Cons: Definitely have to tug these on! (I suppose that's good for fit).
Unknowns: haven't had a chance to test their water-resistant properties yet.
Good commuter and day tripper boot. Very happy with my purchase.

Style and function for a great price.
Looked at boots vs. riding shoes for weeks before deciding on these. Received these three days after ordering. Boots feel a little stiff on first impression but break in very easily. I *love* this boot. Embedded hard-part malleolus protection medially and laterally is nice. Fit could not be more perfect for me. Foot bed is roomy in the toe, wide enough to be comfortable, but not sloppy. Wraps snugly around the heel. Perfect fit with thin socks but roomy enough to stuff a thicker sock into in cold weather. I wanted something with laces for a snug fit and the hidden laces with velcro cover-up are the perfect blend of form and function. NIce! Can't comment on warm weather breathability yet. They're great in the 30-70ºF range, and I suspect they'll be fine in warmer weather with thinner, moisture wicking socks. Another thing I like is they don't have a notched heel...the sole just slopes up to a thicker heel, so no hard corner to hang on the pegs. The only negative is on the toe end. The boot has a reinforced toe but lacks any hard part slider on the lateral foot on the toe end. It does have some polyurethane renforcement there, but I feel an embedded hard part like the malleolus protection would have made this boot simply perfect. I have a small foot. I usually wear a 7 1/2-8 US in street shoes depending on brand/type of shoe. Ordered the 41 and, as I said before, the fit was spot on. My first purchase through Revzilla and these guys, like this boot, rock!
