Question Boot Discussion - TCX Track EVO WP?

Does anyone have these boots yet? Came across them in my search and I'm considering pulling the trigger. They seem pretty great for the money, and comfortable for my purposes. Seen them mentioned in other threads but no personal experience yet.

Haven't seen these. But I've had two or three other pairs of TCX boots and abuse them all and wouldn't hesitate to buy another pair.

Well, pulled the trigger so I will keep everyone posted after some Baja riding over new years.

Just got a pair from ZLA
Weigh 5 lbs. Compare to my old FOX F3R at 9 lbs.
Definitely less protection, different style/use than the FOX boots.
Not as wide as the FOXs. A couple "spots" hope to "break in"
14 1/2 vs 17" tall
About 2-3" less circumference around the shin protection. Jeans do go over.
Feel solid enough to stand on pegs without causing pressure points.
I have arch supports in them.
My feet are wide but not fat.
Ride report to follow.
Wearing around the house now.
So far, feel solid.

Actually ended up returning them because they were just too stiff for my use. They were nice though!

how was the ankle protection? I tried on the tcx track boots: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/tcx-track-boots and thought they seemed really secure aroudn my ankle far as twisting and such goes. How do the evo's measure up?

I bit the bullet and bought a pair of these and I like them. I did have to get a half size bigger than the boots they replace. Once you've got the right size they're very comfortable. Soft inside with no pressure points so they are good to walk in. Ankle protection (untested) seems as good as any.
The only down side for me is that the shin protector is quite thick and one pair of riding pants doesn't fit over it.
Conclusion is that for the money I think it's a very good boot.

I purchased these boots from atomic-moto (very good customer service) a few months ago and although this is my first pair of riding boots, I have been satisfied so far. They are a little stiff for walking/hiking but definitely doable and seem to be getting better as they get broken in. I think some stiffness is expected for protection. The shin guard is pretty thick and the buckles are a little difficult to fasten but are secure when adjusted properly. So far I'm very happy with these boots.

I really wish tcx would apply their ankle torsion protection to a pair of waterproof offroad boots.

http://www.tcxboots.com/eng/tecnolog...?tecnologia=23

its really pretty clever in that its not a strict hinge in one direction. more omni directional but still restricting motion in direction needed.

I think if they applied that to the track evo or the desert X they would have a product on par with the toucans or better.
