On short trips and commutes, it’s tempting to wear normal shoes as you’re often straight off the bike and into work or walking round. These TCX X-Rap shoes are the solution! Despite looking casual, they offer a reinforced toe and heel area, and being waterproof, keept my feet dry in a downpour on the J300 launch.
They’re fastened with laces right to the top for a tight fit, and the ladies version comes with pink and white laces included (there’s a gents version available too).
The boots are made using TCX’s ‘Comfort Fit System’; shaped to reproduce the anatomy of a foot. It works too – these are comfy all day, whether riding or walking. Admittedly they feel bulkier than normal shoes, but they’re nowhere near as heavy or cumbersome as some bike footwear.
