Default Motorcycle boots for the Street ride, not Street Racer...?

I have an FZ6 I use to commute to/from school and occasional 3 hour trips about once a month. I've been looking into buying a boot but I want something I can wear all day cortably without shelling out 500 bucks. I'm a poor college student...But all the boots I seem to come across are 500 dollar race boots. Are race boots really that comfortable to wear all day and worth the money?My biggest reason for wanting boots now is my laces on my hiking boots and shoes both got caught on the shifter and that scared me pretty bad...

OXTAR gore tex. I wear them to the office and while working, more comfortable than shoes or sneakers. $180You will want a pair that lasts, best ratings on Alpinestars, Oxtar, Held, Sidi. Almost forgot check for reviews athttp://www.webbikeworld.com

Been riding for over 30 years and never thought of buying special motorcycle shoes. Ride with what you want to be wearing when you get there.

Race boots are NOT comfortable for all-day wear. They get hot, and lack support. Maybe look into Alpinestars Ridge boots or S-MS 1 shoes, Sidi Strada TePor boots or Doha shoes, Icon Superduty boots or some other boots better suited to commuting.Try New Enough's website (www.newenough.com) and look around a bit. You might even find some closeout Setup boots that will work good for you. ------

it isn't necessary for good riding boots I were a simple pair of leather boots that go over the ankle that's the minimum I would go with for street riding $60 to $100 dollars should get you a decent pair of boots for riding ------

You can get something decent for around $100.00~$200.00. Bike specific boots are more comfortable for riding and most are OK after they have broken in. With an FZ6 you will need something that allows good ankle movement as your feet are pointing down slightly when riding and you don't want to move more than necessary when changing gear ------
