We find TCX boots to be very consistent in fit from one model to the next. We checked this boot and it too is consistent with other models. To choose a size, please click here to see the TCX size chart. The general width of TCX is “medium” or D to E. To compare to other brands you may have experience with, I’d say the overall fit is somewhere between a Sidi boot which is generally a bit more narrow and an Alpinestars boot which has a more generous width.
Our Two Cents
The TCX Zephyr Flow boots are a great street boot for hot summer temps. Parts of the foot are made of free flow mesh to keep you comfortable.
Some people hesitate to wear a protective boot in the summer because they can be hot to wear. So if that is your problem, then consider this boot. All the fabric panels you see used on the upper of this boot are flow through mesh material, so the wind will blow right through those areas to keep your feet cool and dry. Otherwise, this boot is a typical street boot with armor in key areas; discs of armor are located on each side of the ankle and on the front side of the shin. The toe and heel areas have reinforcements so the boot will protect you in those areas as well. The sole of this boot is relatively low profile so it should work fine with nearly any sort of shifter mechanism. The instep area of the sole is reinforced too.
You get the normal side entry zipper so the boots are easy to put on and take off. The insides of the boots are lined with plush breathable material.
I’ve been a fan of TCX boots for many years. The quality is very good, so you can buy with confidence. :: Paul, 11-12-19
