Beaut boots

OBA Issue 73

Formed in 2005, Italian company TCX has been an innovator in motorcycle boots ever since.

In fact, the name is derived from the company’s patented Torsion Control System which is incorporated in both road and off-road styles. While the high-end boots worn by such as MotoGP star Johann Zarco are as trick as you can get, TCX also make traditional styles such as the X-Five Waterproof, part of the Touring Classics range. These have an upper of full grain leather with a waterproof lining, reinforced shin pad, shin plate and heel counter. The full-length vertical zip (with a Velcro flap) makes it easy to get the boots on and off, and should it be required, the sole is replaceable. Sizes range from EU 36-48 in black only, with a RRP of $279.00. Distributed in Australia by Link International.
