I have heard of people using military boots for riding. They are cheaper and I have a military surplus store near where I live so this is an attractive option but I dont not want to have hamburger legs if I go down. Will military boots do well at protecting me?

Better than sneakers but still not as good as the real thing. I used to ride in navy jungle boots, because I used them for everything, but now that I've switched to purpose-built riding shoes I'll never go back. They aren't that expensive either, you can get riding shoes/boots of any style for under or around $100.

Since I wear work boots all day I just modded the shift lever to fit the steel toe. And you can lace em up good and tight as you please to give you a comfortable ankle flex.
