Default Motorcycle boots help ankle discomfort?

I have a street bike and i use it everyday. On longer rides my feet and ankles get sore from the pegs. I was just wondering if the street boots would help since there high tops. Some go up to your calf. I wear regular shoes low cut.

Sometimes they can help. Sometimes they can make a different part of your leg hurt. Just try some and see what they do for you. Also, sometimes your riding position can cause pain in strange places. Try a slight adjustment as well and see if it helps.

I have never worn motorcycle specific boots.I wear work boots all the time. I find they work well for riding.I get ankle coverage and support. The steel shank takes the pressure from the peg and spreads it over the bottom of my foot.

Over the ankle is best and most bike boots are double layered for protection.
