Hello fellow riders. I am currently shopping for new riding boots, and after several hours of researching (thanks for your reviews), have narrowed it down to TCX X-Five Plus boots. My big concern with these is the durability of the soles. I have IMS aftermarket (unsharpened) metal pegs on my KLR and was wondering if anyone can chime with their experience with their TCX boot sole life and ruggedness. I have Garne MX boots for any harder offroad adventures, so the TCXs would be primarily for milder street riding (less standing, dragging, etc.) that can keep my feet dry from Florida rain. I wear a 9.5 EE street shoe so any sizing opinions are welcome as well. I'm not sure if the 43 Euro or 44 would be best. Also considering the Alpinestar Web Goretex boot as another (more expensive) option if has a better sole and fit. Thank you all in advance for any input, this forum rocks!
