Our Two Cents
The TCX Infinity Gore-Tex boots are the top of the line adventure touring boots offered from TCX. The Infinity’s combine several elements from the best of their touring and off-road boots, resulting in a very tough boot that is ready for just about anything you can throw at it. First up is the Gore-Tex membrane that lines the inside of this boot. Gore-Tex is well regarded as some of the best waterproof material available, preventing any water from entering the boot, while still allowing your feet to breathe. This lining extends a good ways up the boot, all but the top 3 1/2 inches have this material (the boots are a total of 14.5” tall). So you could stand in a 10” deep puddle and they would keep your feet dry. At the top of these boots is an elastic gaiter, which provides a good seal around the top of the boot to help prevent debris from entering if you are riding in off-road environments. Another featured borrowed from the off-road world is the use of cam-lock buckles to secure these boots to your feet and provide a custom fit. The Infinity’s have two buckles, one that tightens around your instep and one right above the ankle bone. I’ve always felt that boots with this type of closure feel more secure on my feet (vs. just a plain zipper) and these are no exception. Once those buckles are latched these boots aren’t going anywhere, and the ankle support is decent also (much better than a standard touring boot, but not as heavily reinforced as a true mx boot). This translates to a boot that is still wearable with all day comfort, but offers the protection you need in case of a fall. In addition to ankle support, these boots also have small armor pieces over the ankle bone. There is a shin plate as well as reinforcement in the toe box and in the heel cup as well. A rubberized shift pad will keep that area from getting worn down, and it is textured for positive interaction with your bike’s shifter. Along the inner side of the boot is a suede leather heat shield, protecting you from hot exhaust and engine parts on those long rides. Lastly, the sole of these boots is very reminiscent of “Aqua Tread” car tires (remember those?). TCX claims that these soles will work very well in wet situations, and it looks to me like they would be right to say that.
