TCX Explorer Evo Gore-Tex Boots - Black
Customer Product Reviews
I'm really happy with these boots. Always been a big fan of Sidi Vortice but having recently left sports bikes behind I wanted something more suitable to wearing under armoured jeans. The TCX Explorers are very comfortable, I went one up on normal shoe size and they fit perfectly, easy to get on and off with a single zip and velcro tab. Haven't tried them in the rain yet but they're Goretex so should be fine. The boots look really well made and stylish (in a touring sort of way) and I expect them to last well. Unlike the Sidi's they're also comfortable off the bike.
High quality boots
Really high quality boots, the ankle protection is a good size, the soles are grippy, the uppers are really well crafted. They look really sleek and smart, and the tops didn't dig in at all when walking around. Shame they're so slim fitting because I really liked them but had to return them.
Glad I went to the shop!
Thought I wanted a different pair of boots, checked stock and popped to the Leeds shop. Glad I did, the others just didn't fit. Tried the TCX, spot on for me. Taken a little bit of bedding in, but not as much as I'd expected. Waterproof and comfy - all good!
Replacement Boots / Redund
I bought a pair of TCX Explorer Gortex boots last year and with 8 months they were showing signs of the sole coming away. I left it a few weeks and then decided to contact Sportsbikeshop. Within an hour I had an email with a returns label asking me to return them for inspection. Great communication during the period I knew exactly what was going on. Within 2 weeks I was told the supplier was happy to either refund or send out a replacement pair. I took the replacement knowing how good the boots were. Fantastic service I will certainly by from Sportsbikeshop.co.uk again.
Comfortable, dry feet.
Purchased a pair of Spada Seeker boots which fell apart within a few months, SBS took them back and I exchanged them for these, in the acknowledgement that you get what you pay for. For me Gore-Tex products are the gold standard now, if you are a all year biker like me. These boots do their job in heavy motorway rain and allow me to function normally when I'm not on the bike. Will likely purchase another pair when these eventually give in.
Great from the outset
Comfortable all round bike boot that looks ultra modern. Easy to get on and off. Warm and Dry Picked the wrong pair initially but the returns support from SportsBikeShop was smooth and professional, they are now my preferred supplier.
Time to ride the world.... with dry feet!!
These boots are really comfortable with plenty of adjustment in the calve to accommodate thick socks. Good quality workmanship with protection in all the right places. I can't say how waterproof they are as not ridden in the rain yet, but expecting good results with them been goretex. Was tempted to try them in the shower but thought that would be a tad stupid..... Highly recommend
Hardy pair of boots
Extremely well made pair of boots, although slightly on the stiff side. I'm hoping they'll soften over time. I had to go two sizes up, as they are very tight across the top. On the plus side, I have enough room for additional insulation for when it gets really cold! Exchanging the smaller size boots was quick and very efficient. Thank you Sportsbikeshop.
Out of the box they were quite tight on me and the zip was hard to do up. I was concerned about breaking the zip. I have wide feet and they are a little narrow. Now having worn them for a week they have got much easier to get on and off and are comfortable enough to wear all day and to walk around in. Keep my feet warm. This is my third pair of boots from TCX and I'm sure they will just get better with more use. Can't comment on them in the rain as I've not been caught by any yet.
Hard working boots
Only had them a couple of weeks but these are the second pair. The last pair lasted and performed very well over 25,000 miles in 2 years. Always bought Sidi before but these lasted longer, were cheaper and stayed waterproof until they gave up after the 25,000 miles. Comfy warm, whats not to like?
So far, so good
Decided to spend a little more with these being Gore-tex and looking for some waterproof boots. So far these have not disappointed, easily coping with the rain, although I haven't been caught in any heavy downpours yet. They were comfy straight out of the box, the stretch panels no doubt helping with the fit. One thing that stops them getting 5 Stars is the pair I have are a very broad fit, so I get folds across the top of the boots, but also means I can wear thicker socks in the winter. So a fair trade.
