Review of the month – July – TCX touring boots

Here’s a review from one of our guest of their TCX X-Tour GTX Touring Boots:

“I bought these boots in advance of a Magellan European tour, having read the positive review in a recent RIDE magazine.

The boots were very stiff indeed when new, to the extent I could not change gear without taking my foot off the peg ! Worrying ! However after polishing and wearing them for a couple of hours each day to break them in they became much more flexible. Very comfortable, and the calf adjuster is a nice touch. The old adage, make sure your kit is broken in and comfortable before you go on tour is very wise.

On tour wearing them 8 hours a day both on and off the bike showed no issues whatsoever, very comfortable and warm. Initially I was a bit sceptical about the weather resistance with the zip being on the outside, but I had no issues with waterproof ability. A 4 hour solid downpour during a day in the mountains of France confirmed this in spades. Not a drop got in, feet remained comfortable, dry and warm all day.

No signs of wear so far and I have now clocked up over 6,000 miles in them so they are solidly built too.
Highly Recommended, as first class totally waterproof touring boots.”
