2. TCX RT-Race
TCX's tagline is, "focus on boots." The Italian firm does just that, creating a comprehensive line of moto footwear from its headquarters just north of Venice—not far from brands like Alpinestars, Sidi, and Gaerne. The RT-RACE is the latest addition to the TCX lineup. With an MSRP of $330, it undercuts the high-line R-S2 EVO by $100. You still get the nifty, cinching ankle bootie, combined with the zip/buckle final closure. It's subtle in all black but also available in white or white with hi-vis.
