I've had these boots for one full year and they have been great! They have taken all my abuse just fine. The only thing is when my buckles got covered in mud and dirt and stuff, they got a little harder to open and close. It's not really a big deal, just sometimes is a little pain. But other then that, awesome boot and I definitely recommend it.
This is my second set of TCX 2.1 boots, my wife bought them for my birthday. I've had my first pair for at least three years, still wearing them and I ride rough hill terrain at least twice a week in Northern California. The pros are the protection they provide, the durability (all four buckles are attached and still work) the price is right (compared to some other brands that I will not mention), the old school sole with the steel tip, and the removable bootie.
I have a wide foot and wear a 11 to 11.5 shoe. The boot size I have been wearing is the 46 Euro.
These are the best boots out there, hands down! After trying every option available from Fox and AlpineStars, I decided to try these boots just based on the reviews all over the internet. They are absolutely perfect. Glad I took the chance on these.
I've had these boots for two years now and they are absolutely bombproof. My riding is about 50/50 only because I have to ride some pavement to get to the dirt. They provide excellent support, they fit well and are comfortable. My feet haven't gotten wet in rain, mud holes or creek crossings plus they have held up extremely well and as a bonus they've quit squeaking.
