Hero WP boots by TCX have been a popular addition to the rapidly growing genre of traditional motorcycle boots with more modern protection subtly built in.
TCX is an Italian company that focusses on making motorcycle boots, they claim to be the first motorcycle boot manufacturer with CE Certification and they’ve been in business for over 20 years. The company makes motorcycle boots for all sectors of the motorcycle world from all-out race boots to more street-oriented offerings.
TCX Hero WP boots have become best-sellers due to the combination of protection and walking comfort that they offer – it’s not always easy to find protective motorcycle boots that you can also spend all day walking around town in.
The boots have both medial and lateral ankle reinforcement discs and toe and heel protection, a full grain leather upper for abrasion protection, and a waterproof lining to keep your feet dry when you get caught in the rain.
For comfort and walkability the boots also have the TCX Comfort Fit System (CFS) and an anatomic and replaceable insole. The boots have stitched welt soles and a leather shift pad to avoid wearing holes in the top of the toe box from gear changing.
TCX have fitted the Hero WP boots with both laces and a side zipper, the laces allow you to tailor the tightness of the boots to suit your foot shape and the zipper allows you to put them on and take them off quickly.
