After a month of reading, researching, and looking, I had decided on a pair of TCX Infinity boots. My dealership ordered a pair. I tried them on today fully expecting to ride home with them. At first glance the Infinity is unquestionably a superbly made boot. Its very substantial. Way more substantial than my four year old BMW Contour boots. The buckles were a PITA, but I figured I'd get used to them. Size 45 was perfect. They were very comfortable around the feet and I could tell from the quality leather that they'd break in beautifully.
I couldn't get more than a quarter inch of top velcro to stick. The Infinity is a tall boot: maybe 14", and the top fits over the biggest part of the calf. My calves are a whopping 19" and the Infinity barely closes over the top. There is no way I could tuck a pair of motorcycle pants into them and expect to close them. I have to say that I'm extremely disappointed as I otherwise love the boots.
So, anybody have suggestions? Tall enduro/touring boots with big calves?
