TCX X-Action Boots Based on their extremely popular 2009 Synergy boot, the X-Action has been revamped for 2011. Fully waterproof, this boot is made of top grain leather with microfiber and polyurethane panels strategically placed in high wear areas for longevity and durability. UPPER leather and micro fibre, front and rear padded area for a better comfort, rear reflexing insert LINING waterproof PROTECTION new malleolus protection, shin plate, polyurethane shift pad integrated in the sole FOOT BED anatomic and replaceable SOLE new touring sole, bi-injected with specific grip area and superior stability
I went out on a limb buying this boot, since it was a brand-new product with no reviews, but I was looking for an over-the-ankle boot that was styled well enough to wear on an everyday basis. The X-Action definitely delivers in that respect, the materials are very high-quality and it's a very good-looking boot. The zippers and velcro are very well-made, and really simplify the process of getting them on and off.
My only issue with the boots came with the sizing. I normally wear a size 10.5-11 shoe, and ordered the size 10 boot accordingly. They were at least a size too large when I received them, and I immediately had to send them back for the size 9. The 9's fit much better, my feet are slightly different sizes so it's not 100% perfect, but they fit as well as can be expected. On the bike, they're quite comfortable, hardly any airflow, but the waterproofing definitely works. If worn and walked around in for long periods of time, the upper cuff will start to chafe the sides of my ankle, but other than that, they're comfortable enough to wear daily. Would definitely recommend these boots.
