These TCX X-5 Plus Gore Tex size 45 boots fit just a tiny bit larger than the 2 year old size 45 Alpinestars they replaced and are much stiffer all over. These are solid feeling boots. Protection seems decent. I have been wearing them all day every day for a week now and they are just starting to get slightly more flexible. Another week or two and I think they will be feeling just right. The toe box is taller than I am used to and that makes shifting cumbersome, but I am starting to get used to it. Traction is very good even in the wet, and they are waterproof so far. I ride every day in all weather and put over 15,000 miles on the bike each year, so these will get a workout. Hopefully these soles will last longer than the Alpinestars soles did, and the leather will hold up better too. These are made in Romania, not Italy, but workmanship seems top notch.
