Ok... get your boots out!

So as you can probably tell from the fact that I recently created a what gloves you got post... I’m currently stocking up on some new gear ahead of my new Bobber Black arriving.

Today I’ve been researching what boots to go for and think I’ve narrowed it down to a coulple of options but if you guys have any comments or suggestions I’d be glad to hear them...

Option one...


TCX HERO Waterproof GORETEX BOOTS - BLACK - Urban Rider London

Option two...

I’m not really sure about this last pair!

Options three...

TCX STREET ACE Waterproof RIDING TRAINER - BLACK - Urban Rider London

What are you guys wearing and what do you reckon of these options?

Cheers,

Mike.

Red Wing Iron Ranger for me. These boots are no joke.

Men's 8111 Iron Ranger 6" Boot | Red Wing Heritage

Took about 6 weeks to break all the way in, and for me, rigid arch supports are a must in this specific model. I wear them working every day as well. I have a 2nd "Indian Motorcycle" pair that I'm going to switch to as I send my first pair back to Red Wing for resoling.

I like the Alpinestars best out of these three. Just personal opinion... Have you had a chance to try any of them on?

No not as yet and any dealers are miles away so itíll have to be a case of ordering them online and trying them at home... not ideal but little choice sadly!

I also really like the Alpinestars and love the colour of them... not sure theyíll go too well with my dark brown leather jacket however!

I have the TCX HERO and TCX ACE.
I much prefer the Ace boots as they are far comfier.
The Heroís are quite ďstiffĒ and feel bulky yet no safer than the Aces. Feel and control with the stiffer Heroís is again inferior to the Aces.
Maybe the Hero boots need a lot more time to loosen up, but with the Aces sitting right next to them - thatís just not happening.

In my experience, TCX shoes in general donít have a (very) long lifespan if worn daily for commuting/urban riding/walking, etc. But they are fashionable, comfy, CE rated and for their price i would not expect them to last forever (like a pair of much more expensive Daytonaís, for example).

Thatís interesting feedback... Iím honestly torn at the moment but need to get my act together before the bike arrives! I do really like them both but if anything lean towards the Heroís and the Alpinestars because of the heel/step. I tend to like the way this creates a natural spot to rest on the pegs!

Understandable if you need the heel/step to rest on the peg.
I always ride on the balls of my feet, so naturally tend to go for a flatter (albeit reinforced) sole.

Found this review.
I have worn my Hero boots 3 or 4 times, so this review may be relevant to you before you make a decison.

I just realized my Boots are the TCX XBLEND!
I had the Heros on order, but my size was not in stock. So got those instead.
Apologies for the confusion.
(i think i officially have too many boots )
