TCX X-Street Waterproof Shoes

Just got a pair of these from my loving wife. I've been looking for a shoe I can wear to work that is not my big riding boots. My office is 15 minutes from my home and I only take side roads to get there (no highway riding). Like much of us, I'd resorted back to just wearing my Chucks and hoping for the best. These look a bit like Chucks but actually offer some protections. I'll give you a breakdown of good and bad.

Good.
-They actually stay dry. They are waterproof and hold up to it.
-They are very comfortable to wear all day.
-Stylish, no one knows they are a riding boot at all.
-It's stiff in the right places and I would feel comfortable is I went down in them.
-They come with a little shoe cover so you don't scratch them up while riding (sort of like a shifter cover for your left foot)

The Bad
-Because they are waterproof, they don't breath well and can get hot
-The leather is not the best material and if you forget your little shifter cover you will scratch up the boot. It almost looks chipped.
-Kind of pricey.

Overall, I am happy with them. They are a great shoe for day to day wear and I'd feel okay if I went down at a low speed with them on.

Thanks for the review. I actually suggested these to a guy in a different thread who was considering buying a pair of custom Chucks for riding. I told him these might provide better protection. I don't have any experience with them, so I am glad I didn't suggest the wrong thing.

I'll bump this because I am considering them myself. Anyone else have these?

I'm a novice and will not be doing any serious road trips for a while. I just think they would work well with jeans for basic riding. I have thin ankles, so I want to make sure these offer good protection there.

I must say after having them for a while and wearing them a lot. I am really disappointed and how bad the leather chips and scuffs. The little shoe cover is gone, once it gets used it stretches out and comes off easily. They still work, but the leather is really bad. I almost wish I would have gotten the non-waterproof version.

Yes, I agree these are on the spendy side.
I like these shoes. Styling and comfy.
Has good enough protection IMO, I've tested them.
Fortunately, they work as they should. I had a lowside, just a few minor scuffs, hardly notice.
Mine had no toe cover, didnt even knew that existed.
Mine seems to be holding up well with the leather.
Id recommend these.
