I saw an ugly vid yesterday and decide to think about proper footwear. I've been wearing like pull-on "cowboy" (remember Frye boots?) when I commute and military Desert boots when I ride for fun(paternal right of appropriation- they are my son's). Since I dress for work I can't really do the desert boot then. Anyway- I'm wondering what the real purpose of riding boots is and what would satisfy it and still look OK at work??

If I gotta keep a pair of work shoes at work and just ride in and change -I suppose that is ok...are those light suede type low heel, lace-up desert boot acceptable? Anyone have street looking boots for riding? After seeing what the spill did to that guys foot- I'm willing to save for more gear!

Also- is there a better forum to post this on?? I want a classic triple attitude/point of view answer though.

I did a little looking around since m,y post- and checked out your choice too- looks like the smart thing might be to forget dual duty if I want real protection...yrfuneral

Littlejohn- I wonder if the redwings are similar to the chippewa?
Just looked- nope- the Chippewa are very nice looking!
