TCX X-Ride WP Boots
excellent boots for the money
The boots fit as advertised and required essentially no break-in. The side zipper makes for easy on/off and they look great! Definitely recommend.

Great for riding, not for walking
These boots offer great protection for the price, and have a wider-than-average footbed, making them comfortable for my 10-1/2E-width feet. Size 45 is a great fit. They are fairly light in weight for the amount of protection they provide, and the waterproofing seems very well done. But they are very stiff, even after wearing them to work for a few days and walking around in them. My feet don't get sore, but the stiffness of the sole is not very comfortable for walking. Also note that the toe box is pretty high, making it a little more difficult to shift gears on my bike.
The footbed inserts don't provide much support, so I replaced them, which helped a lot. I still wouldn't want to hike for an hour wearing these boots. But I will not hesitate to take them on a long trip...the combination of light weight, waterproofing and protection is excellent.

Awesome boot....very comfortable.
This is really a great boot. Awesome for commuting and touring. Easy on and off, well made, look great. Does not feel like a riding boot. Very comfortable.

I bought this boot replaced an old pair of tcx-Action that I was not able to find in my size.
Zipper on the inside took a little getting used to. The fit seems to be true to size however there is a lot of volume for me in the boot box.
The boot also does not vent very well. It gets very hot. It is marginally waterproof.

Great simple mid-height boot
Finally got new boots after my first pair's (full height waterproof) shift pad started crumbling (yeah, I know, anything to get new motorcycle gear) after 7 years. I am very picky about motorcycle boot styling, meaning, I prefer much simpler, cleaner styling while still having them be protective. The X-Ride boot is a very well made boot that is extremely comfortable from day one. I expected a break-in period but threw that notion out the window after the first ride. The height is just right for me. The grip on the soles are excellent. I hope to test the waterproof capability at some point soon. I was not expecting a large amount of airflow from a waterproof boot but these boot have been comfortable for me in the humid Florida weather so far. The styling could be simplified even more for my taste the boots do look good regardless. These will be my primary riding boots. I just became an instant TCX fan.

Nice stylish boot!
I bought these boots with colder or wet weather in mind. I have a pair of riding shoes that are great for warmer weather but flow to much air to wear in 40-50 degree weather. I purchased these after some research and have been pleased with almost every aspect.
Quality-They keep my feet warm and dry and I feel protected. (I rated air flow at 5 due to the fact that I couldn't feel any air flow!) Some of the reviews I read people were saying that they couldn't feel their controls with boots on but I had no problem with that.
Comfort is great. Like they mentioned in the video the TCX line is built around a foot mold and it shows. After I was done riding I did not want to take them off!
Style is good. I like the zipper on the inside which keeps the outside view cleaner.
Fit was good also. I wear a size 10 US/ 43 Euro in shoes so I was a little nervous getting the size 9 US/43 Euro. Turns out the fit was perfect and even had a little extra room in case I wanted a thicker sock.
One knock on the boot I have is that the velcro closure flap does not have velcro along the whole flap. If you have a smaller calf (which I don't!) you might not be able to close the velcro tight against your leg.That might be in case if you are wearing shin guards but I was not so the top of the boot feels too loose.
Overall I am pleased with the price, style and protection of the boot. Comfort was good.

Good quality and design
Only been using these boots a few weeks but they seem to be well thought out and made - the fit is good, easy to get in and out of, stiff for protection but just flexible enough to be able to walk in without effort, and the tops are tall enough for the pants leg to stay over without being full on shin-guard style boots. I like that they close with zippers and the only Velcro used is on the side flaps which means that even after the Velcro wears to the point of not sticking the boots will still be usable, unlike the pair of boots that these replaced which used Velcro straps to hold the the foot in place - Velcro stopped sticking, boots wouldn't stay closed, useless.

These boots fit as expected and softened up quickly! I love them and do recommend them. They are very comfortable, especially for riding boots and I'm saying this with less than eight hours in the boots!
