    I'm a little bit offended...that is not how you sit on a bike. lol

    I wear Columbia hikers....for my riding style/ability/budget they serve me fine. As more of an explorer then stunt person I'd go with the adventure boot.

    I've been searching for good boots ever since buying my TW. Tall boots are a challenge for me due to calf size - even the Forma didn't fit. So I've been looking at the short stuff. Found some "O'Neal MX shorty Boot 2". A men's 7 fit well enough, though I think I could fit an 8 with an arch support insert. These boots are solid, very hard, and would provide excellent foot and ankle armor. I've got the knee armor with shin guards, so hope these will work well enough.

    Just out of curiosity, I ordered "Icon Raiden Treadwell Boots". With the option of a zip entry on the back, I hope they fit because they'd provide a little more shin protection.

    The last boot I've considered recently - and may order after seeing more reviews - is the "Firstgear Kathmandu Lo WP Boots". They are not as stiff as the other two boots, but might be a better compromise between protection and off-bike comfort.

    With shin/knee guards those Kathmandu's look good with greater flexibility for calf and ankle protection.

    Here are some booted babes looking happy with their Forma Adventure high models. They are also available in a shorter height....yes , both babes and boots can be shorter.Attachment 78745Attachment 78753Attachment 78761
    +1 on the Forma Adventure boots. They are awesome. All day comfortable. Now they make them in a lower cut model for something like $240.

    My wife and daughter did not want real riding boots, and they don't do any real difficult off-road riding. I got them both a pair of black 8" Timberland work boots. They love 'em.

    One can shop around for good deals. I paid $191 delivered to my door. Deals can be found like this for tall in brown: Forma ADVENTURE motorcycle boots, *Slight water damage
    For the low height there are also deals also around $190 from American vendors:
    Forma Boots Adventure Low

    Thanks Fred! I just ordered a tall pair in 14. I'll use these off-pavement on the sand and gravel raids and the others on-asphalt.

    Recently picked up a pair of Daytona Lady Star GoreTex boots, thanks to @rhodetrip's suggestion. Buy direct from Germany without worries- arrived quicker than some domestic shipping (4 days!), no import fees/etc, and much cheaper for same item. Have tried several other premium boots, no luck, finally found the ones! Wife loves them, comfortable to walk in and built very well. Lifetime warranty on that GoreTex is a beautiful thing, too!

    I have been wearing Daytona Lady Pilot GTX boots for three years now when I street ride. I love them, they are quality boots.
