TCX Competizione S boots, £179.99 (143.99 on MCN Shop)
Miles covered/time:
3000/one year

What’s good?
The rugged construction is really reassuring, and has shrugged off a few minor crashes.

They’ve lasted well too – I’m hard on boots, but the sole and upper have resisted abuse.

What’s not?
They’re too bulky. For racing on my TZR250 where I regularly use all or most of the ground clearance they’re too wide – the toe sliders are always grinding, and the right wore through so I’ve scuffed the outer too.

They’re bulky enough to need the gear lever adjusting on some bikes too.
