TCX X-Square Boots
Get these while you can
Got these boots because I wanted something that was more protective then my current riding shoes(half-cabs). I wear a size 9 in Vans and got a 42(8.5) in these shoes and they fit perfect. Glad I read all the reviews saying it was about a half-size big.
Pretty much everything that I looked for in a commuter boot: good airflow, increased protection over regular shoes, and muted styling. I got these instead of the new x-sport because I don't like the carbon fiber on the new ones. Also saved $30 because these were on closeout! Btw these are also CE certified like the new boots. Description doesn't point that out.
Only cons on the shoe is the insole is flat so I removed the originals and put a new pair in. Also the sole is a little bit slippery out of the box so take it easy the first couple rides.

Awesome Boot! Can't go wrong.
Bought this as my first pair of riding boots. I have a cbr600rr and was looking for boots that were stylish, but not too loud of a design. I normally wear a size 14 but got the 13 and they fit great. I would consider myself as having a little bit of a wide foot as well. I love the boots. They offer great protection all around and I often wear them all day long. While they are comfortable to walk in, if I'm just sitting at my desk all day, my feet tend to get a bit sweaty. But that's not really a big deal. These boots aren't completely waterproof. My advice: get some stain and water protector spray (got mine from Footlocker). Highly recommend these boots to somebody who doesn't mind tying their laces every time they put on/take off their shoes.

Saved my Ankle n Foot)))
Went down, fast and hard. Slid and broke ever thin from, neck up. 4 months out of work. I thank God for, my recovery. My neck is fine, no surgery , just stiff neck brace. Reconstruction of facial bones went pretty darn great. I thank TXC, for an amazing shoe. No damage to my ankle or foot. My Textile Teknic jacket 89. Bucks and my 99. Dollar shoes worked as advertised. Shoes look great on and off the bike. I mean there stylish, without looking too vain. Subtle yet kicking butt at the same time. Lever/ shift feel was so great, I felt confident and sporty. Must have for price. My shoes are still pretty and wearable, after my fall. Check out the pic. Ride safe and thank you RevZ!)

Love the fit and style of these. They provide protection but look like an everyday tennis shoe. The velcro over the strings pops loose some times but all in all a great product.

These boots are really awesome. They are comfortable enough to wear all day long, and awesome to ride it. It is easy to shift and brake with these, and they have leather protection to prevent them from wearing out while doing so. They are a stiff shoe, so it is a bit weird at first but it is easy to adjust to. The protection in the toes, sole, and ankle area feel extremely adequate and I expect they would hold up extremely well in a crash. After a few months of use, they are not wearing one bit, and holding together superbly.

More features, lower price, enough said.
I am really surprised by the amount of features TCX packed into a shoe for such a low price. The toe box is super rigid, and the sole bends in all the right places to allow you to walk normally, but doesn't deform at the arch when you stand on the foot pegs.
True to size, I wear a 43 in other purpose built footwear and these are right on the money.
Firm grip sitting at lights
Lots of feel through the foot pegs
I get compliments all the time about the F1 styling and clean lines of the shoe.
I would definitely feel comfortable buying from TCX again and seriously recommend these boots to those looking for solid protection and impressive value for the money.
If you have any doubt or questions, call a gear geek...the dude measured his own foot for me to help gauge fitment!

Great Shoe for the $$$
Shoe fit a little on the large side. I normally wear a 10.5 in tennis shoe, ordered a EU 44 (Size 10) and had extra toe room.
The Velcro strap up top could be a bit snugger, and can benefit from more velcro material for those that want a tighter fit.
Overall a good shoe for the buck. I would definitely hold out for the new X-square sport.

Great feel, all day comfortable
I wear these all the time. I ride in them, then work all day (in an office) with no issues. They are very comfortable, and flow air well while riding. I've never had any issues catching them on the controls, heating up, etc. They are great riding shoes, but not alot of protection. They have impact armor in the ankles, but that's about it. Got what I expected out of them, and couldn't be happier.
