    Flailing injuries are very common in a motorcycle crash and proper riding footwear addresses that injury potential with heal cups and padded ankles. Dress for the crash....not the ride.

    Bates 3/4 with laces that never have to be used and a side zipper most of the time. Sometimes just my Skechers.

    I wear Bates Durashocks. They are actually a duty boot, similar to jump boots. They are lace-up with a side zipper and they come in wide sizes. I buy mine from "The Working Person's Store" online. About a hundred dollars. They wear forever, take a good shine, and are comfortable to walk in

    Milwaukee stomp boots. Been wearing them for YEARS

    (Though the below link shows that they're discontinued... you can still find them elsewhere)

    Riding boot

    That suggested replacement is pretty close to what I wear. Loggers; they've saved me many times working and a few times riding.

    Danner hunting boots. I swear by them. They are very comfortable and built tough.

    Only Harley thing I own? Ankle-high boots with zipper and laces. Have had them 11 years and still going strong, although a resole may be in order soon. Thinking about something different though. Would like to find something ankle high with a slimmer toe cap for shifting.

    Tour Master Solution WP Air Boots. about $129.

    They are comfortable and I can spend all day walking in them if needed.
    I've spent most my money on Motorcycles and Women, the rest I just wasted.

    Sidi Canyon for LD rides and cooler weather. For my general around town and short trips in the heat I have my Sidi Blades. Both very comfortable and no problems shifting like some .
