    RedWings

    Some models weigh a ton,and are bit bulky/insensitive for biking.

    Not BAD,,,just a bit for some folks.

    But for long work periods,,they're hard to beat.

    I wore them for years when I was in Oil Biz,,,

    40~60 Hour " DAYS" without even sitting down was not usual.

    Put in many 90+hr "days" over the years.

    20Hrs was normal.

    Redwing 2230's are the Only thing I'll wear far as work boots.

    They couldn't be tougher if they were made outa Iron(or heavier,,lol)

    But for me anyway,,,at the end of the day they haven't gotten "heavier" like a lotta boots do.

    Even when your "day" is 3~4 days long

    They have actual Biker Boots,,,but I never tried 'em.

    Seem nice though.

    ..............................................................

    Wolverine makes very a good boot,,,generally comparable to Redwings.

    Wolverines are lighter,,I never tried 'em,,but I know a buncha folks who like them.

    They're usually cheaper too.

    Many of their styles are in Brown Only,,fwiw.

    ...............................................................

    Justin Ropers seem "underrated" far as Bikers' Boots.

    They're real good wearin' boots.

    Their plain,basic Ropers are Stoopid Cheap $50~60 range.

    Well made and comfortable,,light & flexible for being boots

    Rocky Boots are very good stuff.

    When it became publicized & too embarrasing that US personnel in Iraq were having to take boots off of Dead Iraqis in order to have something to wear because "Our Government" was paying Top Dollar for Inferior Garbage "Army Boots" which were MELTING offa people's feet......That Bullshit had to stop.

    And Govmnt was rather compelled to go get "the best boots they could find".

    They coulda got Anything from Anywhere/Anybody they wanted to.

    They chose Rocky Boots.

    ..................................................................................

    Whatever boot you happen to chose,,,

    get yourself some of them Dr Scholl's Cushioned Insole inserts things.

    The GEL ones are really nice,,,,but the cheapie old fashioned plain ones work great & are cheap enough to change every month or 2.

    They add a BUNCH of comfort for work wear,,,

    and they make the boots' insoles last a bunch longer

    ....................................................................

    None of the above are what I'd consider "Ideal Riding Boots".

    If You were gonna take a 2 week Road Trip and spend 10hrs a day on the SEAT instead of Your Feet.....

    You'd really probably want a different boot.

    But where the Primary App is a Work Boot for a long day on your feet,,,then double-duty as a Safe,Solid riding boot,,,

    I 'bleive the examples above are worth checking out.

    Most of them are available in similar lace-up versions.

    Man,,,10 Hrs is a Plenty long enough day,,

    I hope it's a nice ride in & home again everyday!

    Take care.

    My husband, too , rides a bike (20 years) and has always worn boots for work. He prefers to buy his from a lawman's supply store ie...a store where they sell uniforms for the police. He says they're the most comfortable and durable. Good luck!

    I wear Chippewa model 27422 a great boot that is not cheap, but they will rebuild it for you if you wear it out for a reasonable price.
