TCX X-Ride WP Boots
Hot N Sturdy
The boots themselves are fairly comfortable, but High Socks must be worn to keep the tops of the boots from scratching your legs. They are fully waterproof and very toasty, too toasty for summer riding. In addition, you should be very familiar with your clutch as there is a loss of sensation while wearing them. Not comfortable for walking in all day especially as they have a forward tilt to them, as if really meant for street bikes over cruisers. However all in all I am very satisfied with the boots.

they are a bit hot but well constructed and comfortable to wear walking or riding. Very satisfied with them.

I bought this for the following reasons
- Waterproof (tested in the rain)
- Quick and easy to put on/take off (Zipper and Velcro)
- Great price

Phenomenal boot at the sale price
Really nice boot at this price point. Italian built with the requisite quality, style and functional design that origin entails. It looks magnificent - without being gaudy or a commercial for the company. All the details are well executed. It's shorter than you might think reading the Q&A - probably related to the overall size of the shoe (i.e. quite large sizes might get closer to 10" rise out of the rear, but my size 41 is definitely a "mid-size" boot#. It's also waterproof - so air flow through the boot is minimal....not an issue for me.
Niggles - it's not a boot that you're going to be able to "cinch" down on your lower calf with the Velcro'd flap #that is, unless you have gargantuan lower calves#. So there's going to be some movement at the top of the boot. I like this - so it's not an issue for me. Lastly - it runs 1 Euro size large...exactly. I wear a 42 shoe in European sizes. I have a decent set of shoes from years living in Italy, and 42 is my correct/true measurement. This equates to an 8 1/2 US shoe - of which all my truly-sized American shoes are sized. I ordered the 42, and it was *just that much too loose* to keep. Returning was easy - and I had the pair of 41s in two days. However, keep this in mind - I would order 1/2 American size smaller #or 1 Euro size# than your *true* size to avoid the return postage charge.

Comfortable and sturdy
I have only worn the boor a few times, but it is comfortable riding and walking. The fit is true to size for length and width. I bought it on sale so I think the boot is a good value. It has not been that warm here yet, but the boot may be warm in the summer. Revzilla service was great as always!

Can't beat the price!
At first, these boots were a bit odd to walk around in as well as ride - it just took some getting used to, as well as adjustment of the shifter height on my cruiser. After a week or so of riding and walking in them all day at work, they were broken in and I'm really enjoying them. Great protection, and they take leather shine like no other! I really like the velcro zipper feature, and it's waterproofing is...waterproof! Yes they can be a bit warm, but knowing you're getting a waterproof tall boot, that's something you need to take as a trade-off. Sizing chart was spot on, if anything I should've even gotten a half size smaller.

Good but not amazing...
Boots look good and feel secure.
It does exactly what it advertises.
Nice bang for the buck.
Riding my Suzuki GSX R-750 changing gears requires more attention, because the front of the boots "big toe" it's too high, and you have to lean more to reach under the pedal.
It doesn't bother at all when I ride my Suzuki M109R.
Maybe I'm asking too much of it, what I want is something I can ride and wear all day too.
I'm doing this for the past 3 weeks and it looks like the boots are breaking in a little bit, which makes them much more comfortable but still bothering my calfs even when I have high socks on.
Overall I like the boots, never had any riding boots before so this is my first experience too.
I would recommend it for any bike style but sport racing like GSX-R or R6, R1 etc.
Ride safe my friends.

Overall Good Product
I brought this as my commute boots. Does the job, comfortable to wear but no airflow. Seems to be good in 65 degree Fahrenheit in sunny California.
