Can TCX X-Five Plus Gore-Tex Boot, be worn for a long time and walked in for say 4 - 6 hours Comfortably
While on long rides, say 1 to 2 weeks, I would like not to have to pack other shoes. Can a person ware these say for all day and not end up a cripple, haha. While my wife is with me, she likes to shop, which means stopping at places and looking around for hours.
Yes, I think you could - look, it's not going to be like wearing SLIPPERS, but I have almost fallen asleep in these boots. I have also tramped around a little bit and sometimes put them on just to take short walks for fun.
I would guess, though, that after 6 hours of walking around in them, it will feel good to take them off. But I don't think you'll be suffering too much during those 6 hours, if at all.
My one warning is, they're expensive motorcycle boots, and I feel like walking around in them too much could wear down the sole... not sure what the replacement options are yet.
Wear the RIGHT SOCKS for whatever temps you'll be riding/walking in, and it will make a difference. Get moisture-wicking socks for warm or cold, definitely.
Overall, I think you could do a lot worse for boots for this purpose.
