TCX has a reputation to uphold when it comes to the quality and design of their footwear. Constructed from a high quality full grain leather that will age nicely. TCX keeps your feet protected by incorporating reinforced toe and heel contours and full malleolus protection. They made the Hero a CE-rated boot, so rest assured it's got your back in the event of a crash. The gusseted zip on the inside of the foot means you get easy access to the boot, but there's still round waxed laces to offer a nice vintage workboot look. The zip is kept in place by a leather tab with Velcro when closed. The Hero has a billowed black leather insert above the heel for added flexibility and ease of movement. It's most defining and attractive feature however, is the fully waterproof yet breathable liner on the inside, making this the perfect boot for all-season riding.
