TCX X-Square Boots
Great shoe for a great price
I purchased these boots while overseas. At the closeout price, they were cheaper to ship here than to buy boots in this country. Initially I was going to go for size EU38 (about US 5), but after reading the sizing chart I chose the EU39 (about US 6). In standard shoes I am a women's 7.5.
I should have stuck with the 38 as this pair of 39 have a little too much toe room and it took a bit of getting used to. For the cost of postage to return them, I decided to make do.
These boots are great for commuting to work on my CBR and even for wearing around at work all day. I love the bit of re-enforced ankle protection. Would almost like something done to have a little less of the laces to contend with, but the velcro thing helps hold this in for the most part.
Main complaint really would just be sizing. Otherwise, I'd buy a second pair no problem especially at the clearance price! Awesome!

This boot is very comfortable to walk in and especially for what it's made for, to ride in. The velcro strap is nice to keep your laces in place just in case they were to catch onto anything on your bike. Very durable and I would highly recommend them.

It's just right for me
I got this because I heard from a friend that this style of boots make you feel the gear levers better. So when I got it, I rode for a bit and it does. It also feels very comfortable while riding. And, the closeout deal made it even better. :)

Great protection for the commuter or casual rider. Does fit great and is very comfortable. Although as temps are getting higher, the shoes do get a little warm. Very happy and upgraded protection from wearing regular sneakers.

Good shoe/boot for woman rider
I was looking for a low boot with good features at a reasonable price. This boot fit the cut. it's comfortable in that I can wear it while running errands/walking around. It fits well under boot cut jeans, looks kinda silly with skinny jeans but I do that too. Not much support/protection vertically and I knew that going in as it's more of a sneaker/boot hybrid. The horizontal protection is great, there is flex at the ball of the foot but it's impossible to crush it (side to side wise) which is the protection I was looking for. You can't find that in a sneaker. I wear them every time I ride, so everyday-ish for 2 months and love them! The only feature I wish it has was a zip up closure. I wear at 7 and ordered a 39, they're a little long but nothing to warrant an exchange. Also it's narrow so if you have a wide foot I would not suggest this shoe/boot.

Great for the Price!
This is the first pair of riding bikes I've owned and I really like them. Very durable and easy to clean. If you wear them all day between riding around your feet get pretty tired though as they are stiff, but that's the way you want them while riding. Look great, a lot of people think they're just regular shoes. Totally suggest them if you're in the market for casual riding shoes!

Awesome for the casual rider.
These boots exceeded my expectations by far for this price point.
During a stock inquiry on some other boots, the 'Zilla employee recommended these boots to me, and Im glad he did. The fit is just plain excellent in my opinion. I tried on multiple Alpinestars boots/shoes in the past and felt like they just flopped around my foot, as if they concentrated on the exterior build and materials and forgot that you stick your foot into it for hours at a time.
These TCX boots feel just right though. Sturdy and firm feeling, but easy to walk around in and fits snug and comfortable on the foot, I dont feel like they're gonna come flying off in a crash (as it seems the rule is that if your shoes come off in a crash you're done for). I can wear them for hours on end with no discomfort, but walking around all day in them may cause some comfort issues. Material quality seems to be very good as well, they're holding up great with no broken stitches after a summer of riding.
If you're looking for a comfortable boot at a price that's easy on the wallet, make sure these are on your list.
