The TCX Hero is such a cool looking boot! Moreover, they are the most comfortable motorbike boots I have every worn. However, the real bonus has to be that I have been using them for dog walking, as well as everyday use in the office, and I forget that these were even motorbike boots.
They are a traditional lace-up but have a clever side-zip to make getting them on & off fast and simple. A full lace-up boot is a pain to get on, as you really have to open up the laces to get your foot in - not so with the zip method; you can get them on without undoing the laces. Their looks remind me of an Army or Dr Martin boot, but the Hero’s have a Gore-Tex breathable waterproof membrane and protective areas in the toe, sole, heel and ankle. These are well thought out boots, taking the previous model, improving it, and even adding a double stitched sole to ensure they are extra durable. The only aesthetic gripe I have is the leather shift pad on the top of the toe box, but as they have them on both sides it must be a design feature.
These are the most comfortable motorcycle boots I’ve tried yet and, dare I say, perhaps even the most comfortable boots I’ve ever worn generally. Brilliant work form TCX!

Not everyone’s style, but how could they be!
