I recently purchased a pair of women's TCX T-Lily GoreTex riding boots. Retail $299 to $339 CDN.
*Good price for a leather Goretex riding boot approx $299 to $339 *Canadian funds
*Solidly built leather boot with a Goretex membrane for waterproof and breathability.
*Good ankle protection with the armour.
*Good shin protection.
*Waterproof - I have ridden through a few torrential downpours with pooling water on the road and my feet were dry!!!! No more prune toes!
*Good zipper closure with a velcro tab on the zipper pull to secure the zipper pull to the velcro on the boot. Easy to zip up.
*Flexible around the calf area so they are not tight and you can easily zip up and put your pant leg inside the boot.
*Shifter pads on toes.
*Narrow in the heel cup and moderate width through the foot bed, so it isn't too tight. I have found in past ladies boots have been difficult to fit due to them being super narrow.
*Comfortable foot position in the boot and fairly comfortable to wear when off the bike. They don't look chunky either and go nicely with jeans.
*The insole of the boot is not very comfortable and could use a little extra padding and I found the foot bed a little hard. I have remedied that by adding an insole.
*The boot feels a little cool in the wind because of the breathability of the GoreTex and I have found this in past with other GoreTex products I have.
*The boot sole could be a little heftier and have a bit more tread or deeper at least.
Summary: Overall I am fairly impressed with these boots. My feet stayed absolutely dry in the torrential downpours I have used them in so far. I think they will be a little warm in the summer. Time will tell after several miles of riding to see how they perform long term. My previous boots only survived 8 months of daily commuting and weekend moto diva riding. Nice boot, good quality, worth the money spent.
The T-Lily's get The Princess Scooterpie/Moto_Diva 5 Star approval recommendation.
