TCX Hero Waterproof Boots - Vintage Brown
Customer Product Reviews
Best casual boots on the market.
These are simply fantastic. They're comfortable right from the box, they're not clumpy, they're just really nice boots that you can wear on or off the bike. The zip is a good addition but doesn't really open wide enough to forgo using the laces. The leather is great quality and will patina beautifully, the sole is hand stitched and replaceable and super grippy and the sizing is true. The only thing missing is a pull tab but that's the only fault with these. If you want a pair of casual looking boots buy these.
Very good boots for the price. The sizing is just right, I ordered an 11.5 and they fit great, with just enough room for a pair of hiking socks underneath. They are waterproof to an extent, although 5+ hours in torrential rain did see some water getting in, though I think this was through the top of the boot rather than the body. They are amazingly comfortable to walk around in, and the chunky sole seems to be able to cope with both spilled diesel and thick mud. The armour seems decent too. I had a BMW F800 land on top of me, pinning my foot, and after lifting the bike I didn't even have a bruise, so top marks for that. The only slight downside to these boots is that off the bike, if you find yourself standing or sitting for a while and there's no airflow, they can get slightly stuffy. If that happens just put the side zips down to open them up a little, problem solved. I'd also point out that even though there are zips to help take the boots on and off, I've always had to untie and retie the laces too. Not a big deal, but worth knowing. Overall though, a really nice pair of boots. I'm happy I bought them.
modern bike boots
I wanted a pair of boots I could wear on and off the bike and these certainly fit the bill, very comfortable straight out of the box.Some reviews have moaned about the zip and lace fastening set up why?it works fine, protection is good and there waterproof . They also look great with jeans. so ,yes i would recommend these boots for both touring and everyday use.
Brilliant comfortable stylish boots
I think these are seriously good. I use them to commute and wear all day. They look and feel fine around the office, not at all like bike boots. But when on the bike I still feel they have more than adequate protection and so far seem to be completely waterproof.
Comfortable and stylish
These boots are true to size - I'm a wide fitting 9 and normally get a 43 in other bike boots. I got these in 43 and they are spot on with no tightness. The leather is a nice reddish brown, almost oxblood but not quite. They are comfortable to walk in and soft leather makes them comfy. The soles are not stiff and fit easily under the gear lever. They don't feel particularly protective - you don't notice the armour when wearing them. They are quite warm as the waterproof liner is quite thick fabric, like a sort of neoprene material, and I have found that if you do not undo the laces, as well as the zip, this liner can pull slightly with your foot making them harder to remove. I think once worn a few times it might be possible to just use the zip but don't bank on it. Overall very nice looking boots, well made and more protection than non bike boots.
Excellent boots. Wanted a pair of shoes which not only are protective but also suit denims and other pair of trousers which I wear normally. Quite sturdy and the side zippers make wearing and removing them a breeze. I am still getting used to them on the bike (keep pressing the brake while resting) as they are chunky but overall I am quite happy with the purchase.
Excellent excellent boots
I have had these boots on sense I got them and they really are a good pair of boots look nice with jeans and don't look too out of place walking around town. Order my shoe shoe size and fit well walked around in them for a couple of hours and every thing was fine would recommend....
Bought these to go with some new armoured jeans, wanted the casual look but still keep the foot and ankle protection, these do both, haven't tried them in the wet yet, and they are taking a bit of breaking in, but that may be because they are very sturdy.
