I recently got invited to TCX Boots' international distributors meeting in Montebelluna, Italy, where the big news is the new Pro 2.1 boot, due out before the end of 2010. Like the current Pro 2 it replaces, it's a top-end boot with an inner bootie and an articulated (similar to a hinge) ankle. TCX isn't scared to go "toe to toe" with the other big brands, so if you can't decide between the bootie-d Tech 8 or the ankle-hinged Crossfire, compare them with TCX boot. It might be your boot, and save you a little money, too. It was really great to be included in TCX's meeting, and since no good deed goes unpunished, I thought I'd use the rest of this blog to goof on TCX's main man in the USA, Jamie "Captain America" Foreman.
