These Boots Have Been A Best Seller For A While. Gore-Tex Boots For $240
Motorcycle accessory company TCX has long since been at the forefront of innovation and technology for riders, and the TCX X-Five boot has become the brand’s best-selling piece of footwear.
A lot to do with that popularity is the very competitive price that these boots retail for.

TCX X-Five Plus boots are some of the highest quality products on the marketplace due to their endurance and load spreading padding, making it possible to throttle at higher speeds without worrying about your footing.
If you are a purist about touring, these are worth a serious look. They offer Italian manufactured full-grain leather and the Gore-Tex membrane offers full insulation against weather, moisture, oil, and temperature that could otherwise ruin the material of leather footwear.
This boot has an interior shin plate to prevent contact with sensitive areas, with protection all about the jutting ankle bones and calf area.
The sole includes padding and grip for shifting, so that the sensitivity is not dulled. The boots weigh in at six pounds, it is not significantly heavier than other brands of leather footwear.
Gore-tex is a fabric both lightweight, waterproof, and breathable, allowing protection from liquid without buildup of sweat or oil within the protected body part. The multiple layers act to first absorb moisture and then repel it back so that none reaches the lower layers, all the while allowing transpiration to seep through each part. With about ten billion pores per square inch, Gore-tex can allow water vapor out but keeps liquid water from getting in.
Extra layers for protection add physical strength to the fiber so that a motorcycle tourer need not worry about strains, sores, or blisters on their feet. More toe room permits sensitivity when shifting gears and does not cramp up feet in a crowded space.
Customers have been extremely pleased with TCX X-Five Plus boots. Boasting a stellar 9.82 out of 10 (with over three thousand reviews), it is difficult to find any product on the market with as high a satisfaction rate.
Perhaps the most beneficial feature, however, is that the toe area is not constrained or bulky, so that there are no problems with wearing the boots and using the gear pedals at high speeds.
At two hundred and forty dollars, these boots are moderately priced: they are less expensive than other name-brand boots, but more costly than cheap leather boots.
Wow, excellent craftsmanship, leather, Gore-Tex, smooth zipper with pull tab, and a insole you can easily replace with something different if desired. I wore them in my office on carpet for few hours and that is all the break in I needed.
If you have wide feet, encounter wet weather, commute or tour on your bike then this is highly worth considering. So far it’s been a great purchase far exceeding my expectations and I believe they will last for years. No one would be disappointed with this boot for quality.”
